Thank you for your question. Remember you are not stopping your products indefinitely. It will just be until your skin has recovered. I would suggest that once your Dermatologist gives you the green light, that you SLOWLY introduce your products again. Be very slow with the Vitamin A. Use it once a week for the 1st month, then twice a week for the 2nd month, then 3 times a week for the 3rd month. If it’s a fairly strong Vit A, then there is no need to use it more that three times per week. If you really want to or if it’s a mild Vitamin A, then you will have to continue with the slow build up until your skin has adjusted. As for your other products, depending on what is in those products and how active they are, you may want to also just slowly introduce these, alternating them with your Vit A so that you don’t have all your actives on at the same time. One thing you need to start using ASAP is your SPF.
