February 28, 2020 0 By Ewald Bahringer

Hey guys welcome back to WishtrendTV it’s your sister Eunice and Jihyun We’re so excited it’s our first time that we’re filming together right? I’m really excited for our team work today So if you guys have missed out our last videos On Do’s and Dont’s Botox-Like Serum, go
check it out And Eunice, have you noticed that we get a lot of questions on our do’s and don’ts videos? Yes of course, and especially I see in the comments these days a lot of people ask about retinol Like, Eunice what do we use retinol with, what is it good with, or what can you not use it with Or I feel like a lot of people really love it so it’s common and very popular these days I think it’s because people use it to improve collagen production and fine lines For sure, and pigmentation and acne as well So before we get started with our do’s and don’ts for retinol You have to pay attention because we’re gonna clarify some terms for you guys today So right now, this part is gonna be really important before we start the video So please pay attention It’s commonly known as vitamin A, retinol, retinoid, and retin-A Retinoid is used for cosmetics and the retinoic acid is used for ointments And tretinoin is approved by the FDA as a treatment for photoaging Retinol palmitate and retinol and retinal has retinoids in them Usually the closer you get to tretinoin you get more effects and also irritations Tretinoin is about 10 to 20 times stronger than retinol So you do get 10 times or 20 times the higher effect of it But at the same time you can get serious side effects as well Also when retinol is absorbed into your skin it turns to vitamin A derivatives, also known as tretinoin So that’s when you get to see the results This is why you can get side effect by using retinol too Yeah for sure so side effects like burning of the skin, itching, redness, or even peeling of the skin These are some of the things that you can definitely see And also if it gets severe you can even get dermatitis as well Retin-A and Stieva-A cream is the most well known creams out there which is tretinoin And we also get comments about that too And in Korea actually you can’t get tretinoin without a prescription One time a dermatologist mentioned Stieva-A cream on TV and it was sold out all over the country But also because of the side effect of tretinoin, some Koreans perceive them a little bit negatively so So I think Tretinoin is actually, the opinion of it is very different in countries right? How is it in your country? We’re really curious Can you guys comment down below how they’re portrayed, what their opinions are Because we’re very curious if you have other skincare needs you can look it up in our channel Wishtrend TV Wonderful and please subscribe to WishtrendTV and also give us some love on our Instagram ok Do number 1: Get a proper diagnosis Aright so we all have different skin types
different skin conditions So the most important thing is to consult with your doctor Make sure that you get the right diagnosis from your doctor As we mentioned in the beginning of the video Tretinoin is really awesome it has great
effects however at the same time It can have severe side effects as well so we
do want to recommend that You consult with your doctor for the proper dosage In Korea you need prescriptions to get tretinoin cream such as Retin-A Apparently people in their 20s go to the doctors to get prescriptions But I think it’s too early to use it in your 20s If you want youthful aging applying
sunscreen would do the right job You’re right I think you can start using it in
the mid 30s or even after later on in your 30s But we do want to recommend one
more time to really consult with your doctor And make sure that you hear all
about the side effects and the cautions as well Yes but we know that going to
the doctor is not an easy thing to do for everyone And also we’re kind of scared and worried because of the side effects Or you already tried it and
you’re kind of scared to use it again Because of the side effects So for people like this we recommend you using skincare products That contains retinol before using tretinoin cream Good news is that at wishtrend we’re
actually coming up with a new product That contains vitamin A so we’re so excited I hope that you guys are excited as well Do number 2: Moisturize Because tretinoin peels off large flakes of dead skin cells What its gonna do is
make your skin more smoother However you are more prone to see dead skin cells as
well yes So tretinoin is used as a treatment for
acne that is caused by dead skin cells That have clogged inside your pores But at the same time some get acne after using tretinoin Because of the increase of dead skin cells clogging inside your pores So when using tretinoin it’s really important to use a cream type of moisturizer So we do want to recommend
please don’t exfoliate But what you’re gonna do is actually use twice the amount that you would usually use just To make sure that your skin is hydrated
and they can calm your dead skin cells Also drinking your water let’s let’s
drink our water why Drinking our water constantly not just you know when you’re thirsty or not just when you’re eating But drinking it constantly will help to
keep your skin moisturized which is Really important especially when you’re
taking tretinoin Cheers Do number 3: Use for night-time only Sunlight and UV rays
dissolve tretinoin so it’s really best to use it only at night It’s not because
of the photosensitivity It’s because tretinoin itself is
unstable when it’s exposed to sunlight So you’re right you might be wondering
is it safe to use under room lights or Even lights from our phones or even LED
face masks I was very curious with that too And yes we did some researchers and according to the researchers They do recommend that you avoid them However it’s only experimented to under really
extreme light exposure right? So if you compare that with our daily lives it can
be a little bit different However there is a possibility that we can get extreme
light exposure in our daily lives too so It’s the best that you avoid the lights Yes that’s why it’s recommended to apply tretinoin Just right before you go to bed Only, only if you sleep with your lights off However if you cleanse your
face hours before you go to bed However if you do cleanse hours before you go to
bed just remember to apply tretinoin Right before you turn off the lights Do number 4: Apply sunscreen If you have watched our last video you will
definitely know already That UV rays cause pretty much of your aging If you haven’t seen that yet after this video click on it right here We recommend you to use sunscreen because it can prevent and effectively treat photoagaing Not because it can prevent side effects from tretinoin Don’t number 1: Skin types
that should avoid tretinoin We told you that you can get severe side effects too so we’ll tell you the skin types that should avoid tretinoin First is atopic dermatitis. Even if you have it just on your body part not your face We do want to recommend that you avoid it If you have facial eczema, psoriasis, sensitive
skin, and redness on your face Do not use tretinoin Yes exactly so with
all the things that we’ve mentioned right now We do want to make sure that
you avoid it because it can make your skin even worse And even if you don’t have these skin concerns or skin conditions that we just mentioned We do want to ask that you do consult with your doctor first Don’t number 2: Ingredients that you shouldn’t use together Do not use tretinoin with exfoliators like AHA, BHA, or vitamin C Or anything that has a high percentage of ethanol Right using tretinoin can increase dead skin cells But you should never ever ever use
exfoliators for that All right so with the ingredients we’ve just mentioned before please don’t use them together Because it can make your skin more worse it can make your skin more sensitive And just don’t do it Don’t number 3: Areas that you shouldn’t apply To go straight to the point you
have to be extra extra careful When you’re using tretinoin arround eyes
nose and lips For the skin around your nose and nostrils we do want to
recommend that you avoid them For the tips for the parts around your nose and nostrils We don’t want to say straight up like avoid them for sure We don’t want to say that however it’s very sensitive so it’s more prone to get side effects So keep that in mind So when you’re adjusting to tretinoin
we do want to recommend that you do avoid them then And the funny thing is
we do apply it on the nose area But we don’t have any wrinkles on the nose right But what we’re kind of assuming or what we’re hoping for is Actually to help with the pores Enlarged pores are due to overproduction of sebum However tretinoin doesn’t help to control the production of sebum So we do have to keep in mind that for this purpose it’s not gonna be helpful For around your
eyes it depends on your age We wouldn’t recommend to people in their 20s but if
you do have to use them Avoid using them around your eye area If you’re in the
30s you can use it with caution If you’re in your 40s and above you can
apply tretinoin around your eyes Just like any other areas If you don’t feel any burns Of course it depends on your skin type so make sure to talk to your doctor first Yes I think that’s the most important thing and with the lips and the skin around your lips We do want to recommend that you don’t use it Because it’s very very sensitive and even if your skin is adjusted to it We want to recommend that you don’t use it around that area Okay so we looked into five
