All About Vitamin A Cream (Retin A Cream): Cure for Acne & Fine Lines W/O Side Effects

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

  • Every country has different attitudes towards Tretinoin(Vitamin A). Share us what it's like in your country! And leave us a comment if you have any questions or requests for our next topic for Do & Don’t.πŸ’šπŸ’š

  • Tretinoin cream/gel/ointments, is a prescription product (drug) here in the Philippines. It is considered TERATOGENIC, (substances that causes birth defects when used by a pregnant) it is always advice to seek help from a physician first before applying/taking these products.

  • DandelionPelt UwU says:

    Let’s all admit 99% of us are now thinking about using it, and 1% already is. UwU
    Also thanks for the great info!

  • The tret-face/ purging is kinda crazy. When I used it several years ago my purge and peeling was about 2 months. Now it's been a few years and I'm using it again slowly and the purging is going down quicker with help from my cosrx products πŸ₯³

  • Thank you so much for making this video! My dermatologist prescribed Retin-A to me, 0.05%. And I am in my mid 20s with combination skin. It definitely helped for about the first few weeks, only when used at night. But I also saw the side effects soon after and stopped using it. Then my skin became super sensitive. So, I only used it as a spot treatment for my acne. She did recommend to mix it with a cream because she understood that it dries up the skin quite a bit.

    Which cream would you guys recommend?

  • I wish I had this info before πŸ˜…
    I used retin A 2 years ago and I will never use it again till I'm 30
    Thanks for the explanation 😊

  • In the US most dermatologists recommend starting using it in your 20's. And, that's what I have done, but i don't love it. It turned my normal skin that could wear any foundation to dry skin. Luckily, I never had horrible side effects like being super flakey or sensitive, but i need super hydrating foundations or else it just clings to dry patches i didnt know i had( although for most of my life i mostly have worn tinted moisturizers as I don't have bad acne). I think dermatologists recommend tretinoin because most studies have been done on that and it's considered the "gold standard" for anti-aging. I've only been it for 2 years and use it every other day and on the other days i use any active acids like a bha/aha. I don't think I'll ever use it every night as I like using other products too and you never know if it can be harmful for your face type in 20 years for whatever reason. Also you are not suppose to use it while you are pregnant because it may cause defects. So , that makes me wonder if it can hurt a person fertility too if you are on it for many years you know?

  • I use the Granactive Retinoid Emulsion by The Ordinary maybe twice a week all over my face including under the eye area and I'm 29 – do you think it's safe to use it this way? Thanks for your help and really good video btw πŸ™‚

  • im 16, and i've been using tretinoin for around 2-3 months for my acne. it has helped to clear up my skin quite a lot but it did start flaking my skin a bit. should i stoll stop using it although it has helped my skin to clear up?

  • in indonesia Retinoic acid is supposed to buy by prescription… And its available up to 0,01%. But… We can buy it at any drugstore because they don't care that much about it… So yeah

  • It is known that tretinion increases the cell turn over, so how deep within the skin it penetrates and works. Moreover, does it helps with acne scars if used for longer time?

  • Retin-A is one of those very few products that I find LIFE CHANGING. I suffered from acne for more than a decade and it was the only topical product that was able to clear my skin when it was on its worst condition. I haven't stopped using tretinoin cream since then.

  • I use it every night and i don't have any bad side effects , i use "differine cream" because is not so strong andbi want to make my skin used to it and then im gonna use " differine gel" it much more stronger and have better results
    I'm 18 years old and i use it for my acneb
    I feel my face is much better than before there is only some acne scars
    I really wanna know some good things to do for my acne scars

  • can i get p subs for a reason for no reason says:

    I started using adaplene since I was 13. I’m 14 now and honestly my acne hasn’t gotten better

  • Hi WishtrendTV team, in Germany only available on prescription by doctor. However there are some skin care products available, e.g. dermatologica overnight retinol repair. These products are possible to buy at the pharmacy store or drugstore without presciption πŸ™‚ Still I am in my mid 30s and prefer to use skin care products with tocopherol, it is helping my sensitive skin a lot (especially in the cheek area).
    Will ask my doctor regarding retinol in next visit πŸ™‚

  • In our Do & Don't episode on vitamin A creams, we shared that ingredients with exfolaiting properties and vitamin C should not be used with such products. We'd like to clarify regarding this statement.
    Those new to using tretinoin may experience side effects, and as exfoliants and vitamin C may cause additional irritating, we do not recommend using tretinoin with the aforementioned exfoliants and/ or vitamin C.

    However, if you do not experience side effects from tretinoin and use tretinoin creams as you would a regular cream, you may go ahead and use vitamin C alongside it.

    We don't recommend exfoliating for those just starting out with tretinoin as it may cause irritation. If you don't experience any trouble with tretinoin, you may exfoliate once every 1-2 weeks as you see fit.
    As vitamin A is a difficult ingredient to use, we chose to share the safest, most fool-proof way to use it. We thank your feedback regarding this topic, and if you have any addition feedback, comments and/ or questions, please let us know.

  • Dr obagi has one with a super low percentage that I have been using, which has given me good results. I have had allergic dermatitis in the past, so it’s all about skin patch testing!

  • Retinol helps with my pigmentation but cause lot of blemishes on my cheeks and forehead. It's a shame I had to stop it as it helps lightening my skin
