Hi Brad, you're on the right track and I think you're right about the BP and SA together drying your face out. Many people use both with success but it's better to experiment with SA after your skin is used to the BP. You should be moisturising after you apply BP.

What I'd suggest is make your regimen like Dan's. Go here and read his instructions carefully: http://www.acne.org/regimen-instructions.html

I would:

- wash with a gentle cleanser and pat dry.. does the cleanser you have have any acne medication in it? try and get one that doesn't if you can, this can dry your skin out also.. a gentle cleanser like Cetaphil or Neutrogena is just right

- 15 mins later apply your 2.5% Neutrogena on the spot BP to acne prone areas (don't apply too much if you aren't used to BP yet as BP causes redness and dry skin)

- 15 mins later apply your moisturiser

Doing this morning and night is the best way to prevent and fight existing acne. Drink lots of water too, that helps with dry skin.
