Skincare is not about layering countless products and expecting good results, you have to know which products are safe to combine, and which aren't.
We've already told you which products you shouldn't mix if you don't want them to backfire. But there are, of course, some products that work very well together.
Skincare products you can mix for better results
Retinol and Hyaluronic Acid
Retinol is a bit irritating for your skin, especially if you've just started using it, so hyaluronic acid can help hydrate your skin, ward off peeling and further irritation.
Benzoyl Peroxide and Salicylic or Glycolic Acids
Benzoyl peroxide is a skincare staple for treating acne, while glycolic acids acid helps get rid of clogged pores and blackheads. Both compounds help better the texture of the skin and get rid of acne-causing bacteria.
Peptides and Vitamin C
Vitamin C reduces free-radical damage and reduces oxidative stress, while peptides help skin cells stay together. Both compounds enhance the skin barrier function, lock the moisture in and improve the complexion if used repeatedly.
AHA/BHAs and Ceramides
AHAs or BHAs are highly hydrating products, when you pair them with ceramides, their lock in all the moisture and create a barrier against pollution, e environmental damage and free radicals.
