Restarting retin a?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I used to use retin a micro (.1%) almost nightly (i'd take a few days off here or there) for about 2.5 years. I stopped using it however in March (it's no July). My skin was fine in the beginning, but lately I've been suffering from increased breakouts and my recovery time is sooooooo slow. Pimples just sit there (even when I don't mess with them for days) and the after redness is horrible.

I am considering restarting my retin a micro because my skin was just much more reliable on it. But does anyone have experience doing this?

Should I expect an initial breakout that was as bad as the first one????

Any help would be appreciated!! Would love to hear somebody's experience with this.
