What can I expect if I stop applying Retin-A to my face? I've had flakiness, how long until I am back to normal? (photo)

It has been 2 weeks and the flakiness under my eyes makes it impossible for me to conceal my dark circles, I look like a flaky mess under my eyes. Unlike the pic, in real life, my skin is coming off under my eyes. It makes me look much older! What are the re-precautions of stopping at this point? I am going to Hawaii in July and I seriously doubt sunscreen is going to protect me against being in the sun all day.
