I quit Retin A, should I start back up again?

Recommended Posts

I was using Retin A for the past 8 months, it totally cleared my acne. One day at my mother's graduation ceremony I got sunburned. I took a break from the Retin A and my skin was very radiant and smooth. Then I decided to put it back on and I broke out horribly. Thinking of how my skin was before, I decided to stop using it. Two weeks later (now) my skin has some breakouts but it wasn't as bad as it used to be. But it wasn't as good as it was when I was on Retin A. But these breakouts I presume are from me re applying the Retin A.

I hope this makes sense lol, what are your suggestions? I use Clinique's emergency gel lotion on my pimples, it works well but obviously not as good as retin a. Also retin a made my skin very red and that's not a good look while your neck is tan.
