Retinol causes cystic acne?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had Retinol actually cause cystic acne? I've been on it for about 3 weeks now...was on a different Retinol before and my skin was breaking out like crazy. Skin is better on this one, but still consistently getting cysts!! :(

let me rephrase that... i started using it every single night right away. My skin became dry and shiny.. could this have potentially caused the cysts because of irritation?

What kind are you using and how much?

I am taking retinyl palmitate. Have yet to see a change. Broke out a bit but not sure if its from vitamin A or a purge or foods I ate. All on my neck/jawline.
