Whitening, wrinkles, dead skin cells, and acne all at once?!!

Whitening, wrinkles, dead skin cells, and acne all at once?!!

When we think about wrinkle concerns, retinol often comes to mind.


Retinol, a form of vitamin A, is known for its ability to aid in regeneration, prevent aging, and reduce wrinkles. It also has brightening and sebum-regulating properties. Retinol helps to improve skin texture and tone, and it can also assist in acne treatment by clearing away excess dead skin cells.


In short, retinol is all about antioxidants. So, what is an antioxidant?
It means preventing oxidation. As we age, our cells start to oxidize, which leads to aging. Harmful free radicals in our bodies attack these cells, causing aging and diseases. So, getting rid of these free radicals and preventing cell oxidation is what we call antioxidant action.


Vitamin A comes in various forms. Retinol is one that helps maintain epidermal cell functions, while retinoic acid is highly effective for acne and wrinkles, but it comes with potential side effects since it's considered a medication. Retinyl palmitate is less potent than retinol but also less irritating. In cosmetics, retinol and retinyl palmitate are commonly used.


Given how effective retinol is, it can also have side effects,

so it's best to start with a small amount, around 0.1%.


If you’re using retinol for the first time or if your skin is very sensitive, you might experience warmth, tingling, or itching. If this happens, it's best to stop using it.


You might have heard, "Vitamin C in the morning, retinol at night!" The reason for applying Vitamin C in the morning is that after applying your basic skincare products, you put on makeup. Throughout the day, makeup interacts with fine dust and pollutants, leading to oxidation. Oxidation ages the skin, but adding Vitamin C to your morning routine can help prevent this.



When using retinol, you should avoid combining it with Vitamin C or other brightening ingredients at the same time. Using both together can irritate the skin.
