:doh: Most likely, the Retin-A + 'tane will give you very dry/red skin. Mild topicals (low concentration benzoyl peroxide, other antibiotics) may be ok for some people, but slathering your face with Retin-A will probably cause a lot of peeling, redness, and irritation. I've used it sparingly while on Accutane, but I still start to notice peeling after a day or two. If you're going to do a topical, try something not so strong or use less!
