Retin A Making Me Break Out

1 post in this topic

I recently adjusted my regimen to reduce redness and oiliness in my face, and so far it seems to be working. I stopped using my Retin A 1% lotion every night and started using it once every 3 or 4 nights. The redness and oiliness has decreased, but the day after I use Retin A I break out like crazy. I used it last night for the first time in a few days and today my nose is completely red and covered in little whiteheads, and I also have a few whiteheads on my cheeks. My question is, should I go back to using Retin A every night despite the redness and oiliness, or just stop using it all together?
