food causing breakouts or just purge?

Hi all, 

As i’m sure you all are aware it’s the holiday season (merry christmas if you celebrate ^-^) and let’s just say I haven’t really been eating all that well. 

I did finish a course of accutane, and i’m currently on low dose retin a, but in the period of finishing accutane to starting retin a, I ate poorly and didn’t experience any noticeable breakouts.

Could these recent breakouts just be from the retin a purge? I also just ate a lot of chocolate and am nervous i’ll break out even more :(( 

Any thoughts? 


(0.025 retin a for 3 weeks)

It could just be a flare up, if it persists cut back on the junk food for a little to see if it gets better or not.
