Can Retin a Be Used on Dehydrated Sensitive Skin?

I have dehydrated sensitive skin due to overcleansing in the past two years. I started retin a 0.05 cream a year ago and never tolerated the initial effect,i used it on and off(i didnt start slowly and used more than pea size)after few months of stopping retin a i started it again.(my face is still dry and scaly)i apply only a pea size with hyluronic acid moisturizer 1-2x a week for about a month,I am just wondering should i continue using retin a or will it worsen my already dehydrated skin?I am only 22
