Post skin is slowly recovering...

i had a MAJOR breakout on my chin and upper lip a few weeks ago and my skin is slowly healing. i was stupid and stopped using my retin-a-micro at night...i erupted!! has that ever happend to you? where you stop using your normal products because you don't think you need them anymore and get a major breakout? i have a feeling this is a battle i will be fighting for the rest of my life.

I was using retin a with decent success and for some reason I switched to poactiv, and had a bad breakout with red marks that are still healing

Yes, I HATE that. I stopped using my med thinking just a store brand BP cream would do the trick. WRONG! Way wrong! I'm finally clear again, but it wasn't a good thing.

Yup! It's like the medication is keeping you clear but has a few bad side effects so once you get clear you think you'll just stop and have the best of both worlds. And your skin is great for one or two days, then all of a sudden you are screwed.
