Topical medications to get out of your system

How long does it take a topical medication to get out of your system...or skin's system, if that makes sense?

Because I've been taking Tretinoin, which doesn't make it safe for your face to be in the sun..But I'm going to have to be in the sun a lot next week, so I was thinking I should stop using it for awhile, or does it even matter?

I'm going to wear sunscreen either way, but I would hope I could limit the risks by not using the medication So, basically, just wondering how long I would have to stop using it before I'm in the sun a lot for it not to be a risk, if possible. Anyone know? I'll keep looking online
