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!! :)


Morning Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion + Neutrogena Moisture with SPF 15 + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil
 
Evening Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: Cetaphil Moilturizing Cream + Acne.org AHA + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil
 
Extras:
- Concealer: MAC Studio Finish Concealer in C25 (for redness)
- Pressed Powder: MAC Select Sheer in NC20 (for mattefying)
- Foundation: Revlon Colorstay for Oily/Combination Skin in Buff (for even skin tone)
- Scrub: St. Ives Apricot Scrub Blemish and Blackhead Control (twice a week in the AM)
- Medication: Diane 35
                     Meftormin 500mg (for PCOS)
- Supplements: Vitamin D3 (1000UI/day) --- Started 5/16/2013
                         Zinc (50mg/day) --- Started 5/16/2013
 
And this is all done as gently as possible. smile.png
