[acne] new prescriptions and questions

I just came back from my first visit to a dermatologist and I was prescribed doxycycline hyclate 100mg tablets , sodium sulfacetamide 9.8% sulfur 4.8% cleanser , tretinoin 0.025% cream, and clindamycin phospate gel 1%. 
I am going on vacation in 2 weeks , and I heard that tretinoin causes a vicious purge . Should I skip the tret until I come back? Also, will the rest of these medicines help my skin clear up at least a little before vacation ?
