Retinoids make your epidermis very fragile ... the more often you use them, the more fragile it gets. That's why everyone says not to pick at your skin when you are using them, because it is so easy to make big pieces come off.

Tell your sparring partners to keep their dirty paws off your face. :)

Yeah, I don't want this to be a constant thing.

I was also warned to make sure your face is completely dry or it can chemically burn you. I made that mistake back in high school and my face was so red and dry i could not open my mouth without being in pain.
