Can You Layer Retinol & Vitamin C? 🧐

Yes, but with precautions. ⚠️

Retinol is known for its ability to increase skin cell turnover rate and diminish the appearance of cystic acne, fine lines, wrinkles and uneven skin tone. While Vitamin C is a superstar antioxidant that improves skin texture and fights hyperpigmentation and free radicals.

Although neither active cancels the other out, use of both at the same time can lead to increased sensitivity and irritation in skin that has not developed a tolerance to multi-active layering.

Consequently, it's best to use Retinol and Vitamin C separately in your routine and always follow each with a broad spectrum SPF during the day. ☀️
