In brief: What are you doing?

This is very dangerous.
You can damage your brain trying this. If you have acne, and topical benzoyl peroxide hasn't cleared you in two weeks, your physician can help you find the right prescription medicine -- perhaps isotretinoin, a vitamin-a analogue. But the pop treatment of toxic vitamin a doses is dangerous and probably won't work as well as some simple stuff from your doctor.
