Benzoyl Peroxide

I'm ordering the products off the site, and I'm very excited. I do have a question though, it says everywhere on the site that you should take it slow on the BP because of dryness and flakeyness.

BUT...

I've been using Proactiv for a year, and the cleanser and lotion have 2.5% BP. Do I still need to take it slow?

Yes. The amount of BP you start using on the regimen is roughly the same amount most people use with Proactiv, but then you increase it from there. It'll still take you a few weeks to get your skin tolerating larger and larger amounts of BP.

Ok, I'm patiently waiting for my order. =]
