Make sure your beauty products are compatible!
There are many products that have wonderful benefits that can be deactivated or counteracted by ingredients in others. Don’t be afraid to ask your esthetician.
Example: Retin-A and Vitamin C
- Vitamin C helps combat free radicals and boost collagen production.
- Retin-A is a Vitamin A derivative that has been shown to help clear oily skin and acne and even reduce the signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles.
Since Retin-A can cause your skin to be more sensitive to the sun; it’s a perfect candidate for night time use. If you would like to achieve the maximum benefits from these two products, try using Vitamin C in the morning and use your Retin-A at night.
