Stop using BP until your skin has returned to normal, that could take up to a week, depending on how dry/irritated your skin is right now. Keep using the cleanser and moisturizer in the meantime. Then add BP again and build up slowly. You'll be fine, no worries. Good luck! :)

I made the same mistake too when I started the regimen!! And I was using 5% BP so that just about drove me insane. I stuck to the full amount but I switched to 2.5% during my second week. The first 4 weeks were terrible. I stuck with it but I was pretty much uncomfortable the whole day.

Take AKL's advice and start slow. If I had to do it again, I would definitely do it that way. Good luck!! :)
