Instructions for The Regimen say specifically to avoid soap. They also say that you should wash and dry your hands before applying individual steps of The Regimen.

Question: Should I use soap when washing my hands, or just water?

The regimen means you should use soap on areas which are acne prone like your face and if you have body acne, dont use soaps in the shower. You can and should use soap for your hands, to get off the germs which could potentially cause more breakouts if you touch your face.

Great question. I think it is safe to assume that washing your hands with soap is fine, as long as you rinse it off well. But definitely avoid using soap, which can strip the skin and leave irritating film behind, on the face itself.
