well, what i did when i got clear and had dry skin flakes was to cut the bp down to once a day for a few days. hehehe, i know this may sound like blasphemy :-# but give it a try, i applied bp in the evenings only for a few days but carried on moisturising to let my skin regain some of it natural moisture.

try some other exfoliants....a cheap one is apple cider vinegar. see scar board for details...it is still an aha but you might find that you can use it like a toner....see also lactic acid products and mandelic acid. Also consider using a more emollient moisturiser.

Try to find a 2.5% bp gel instead of a cream. If you have health insurance, you may be able to get a generic bp at your HMO or PPO pharmacy.
