Skin becoming incredibly dry

This is my fifth day on the regimen and my skin has become really really dry. I think it's from using too much of the BP. I pretty much went straight up to the full dosage (I have experimented with it before so I thought I could take it). I noticed my face was feeling very very tight. I felt very tense whenever I smiled and I was even feeling some discomfort around my eyes. The worst affected areas are around my mouth and near my eyes (even though I avoided that area with the BP). So anyway, for now I've decided to just wash my face and apply moisturiser (cetaphil fragence free lotion). I guess I'll go back to doing the regimen once a day until my skin improves. Is that what I should be doing? I don't think my skin can take any more BP, even with moisturiser afterwards. Like I said it's already very very dry and sore before I apply the BP.

Ah unfortunately I'm from Australia so there's no chance we will have something like that. :(

I´m sure thats not the only moisturizing cream which can help you to get ride of the dry skin .... Are you able to get same products from "La Roche" ? There is also a Cream which is specially for acne threadments (for the dry skin) ...

I'm not sure, I will have to check up on that next time I visit the pharmacy. Thanks for the recommendation.
