Q. How does Retinol do to your skin?
Wrinkles and loss of skin elasticity are caused by decreased collagen production and skin elasticity in the dermis which is part of the structure of the skin. Collagen naturally decreases due to environmental factors such as aging and UV rays. Retinol will deliver visible results in wrinkles by stimulating collagen gene and synthesis in the dermis.


Q. Do you need to wash retinol off in the morning?
Retinol is weak against light and heat; we recommend using it at night. If applied during the daytime, be sure to use with a SPF. (* It is recommended to apply a SPF even if not applied during the daytime. Because it can be still left on skin in the next day.


Q. Who should not use retinol?
It is suitable for those who have concerns about aging (wrinkles, low elasticity) but not recommended during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Please do not use it after non-surgical cosmetic procedure and using beauty equipment.


Q. What can you not mix with retinol?
Retinol with vitamin C, benzoyl peroxide, and AHA/BHA acids. AHA and BHA acids are exfoliating, which can dry out skin and cause further irritation if your skincare routine already includes retinol.


Q. It stings and turns red. Is it supposed to be like this?
A high concentration of niacinamide can cause skin irritation such as redness and itching, however it’s not harmful effects but it’s burning accompanied by blood vessels to widen. It has nothing to do with skin problems.
Retinol can cause side effects skin irritations, erythema, skin peeling. It is recommended to use a small amount every other week during an adjustment period then increase it gradually.


** CAUTIONS

• When pregnant or breastfeeding, it is recommended to avoid any retinoid products.
• After the use of retinol, the skin may feel stingy and may show signs of reddening due to deep skin exfoliation. Irritation is a temporary and normal symptom. If irritation persists, reduce the frequency or stop the use of the product.
• Due to the nature of the retinol component, the color may become darker or you may feel a unique odor.
• To maintain the freshness of retinol ingredients, avoid storing in high temperatures and direct sunlight.
• It is recommended to store it in the refrigerator when not used every day.
• Since this product can increase sensitivity to sunlight, use sunscreen while using the product.
• Do not pair with any scrub, peeling or exfoliating product as it can irritate the skin
