What skin care products should not be mixed?13.09.2022
Do not mix: retinol, ANA and BHA acids
It is best to avoid mixing retinol with ANA and BHA acids. This can cause severe skin irritation. And if you use acid and apply retinol on top, it will work worse. Retinol will neutralize it. Again, if you want to use both ingredients in your skin care routine, they need to be separated. Use one in the morning and the other in the evening. Or apply every other day – one on even days, the other on odd days.
Blend: vitamins B and E
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that slows down the aging process and moisturizes the skin well. But niacinamide (vitamin B) in turn is a source of energy, and it is especially important for our body, since we cannot produce it ourselves. Together, vitamins enhance each other’s action. “Friends” are especially good at fighting photoaging.
