Do you want to make your skin glow like never before? That's the time to combine the retinol and vitamin c . This dynamic duo is everything your skin needs, but how do you combine them properly? Go for optimal effect and start immediately!

Why combine retinol and vitamin C?

Before we tell you how to combine these two powerful elements, let's look at why they are so important for your skin.

Retinol for flawless cell renewal

Retinol is a form of vitamin A. It is known for its ability to optimize skin texture, reduce fine lines and wrinkles and stimulate cell renewal.

Vitamin C is a super antioxidant

Vitamin C is the other powerhouse. This powerful antioxidant protects your skin against free radical damage, stimulates collagen production and fades dark spots and hyperpigmentation. Awesome right?

How to combine retinol and vitamin in your skincare routine?

Now that you see why both are so great for your skin, let's look at how to put them together properly. Because of course we don't do it for anything less than maximum effectiveness.

  1. Use them at different times of the day - both retinol and vitamin C can make your skin more sensitive to the sun, so don't use them at the same time;
  2. Build up slowly - aren't you using retinol yet? Build it up slowly to prevent redness and irritation;
  3. Use the correct concentrations - the correct concentration of retinol varies from 0.1% to 1% and for vitamin C percentages range from 5 to 20%. Are you unsure about what suits your skin type? Ask our skin therapist ;
  4. Use sun protection - use sun protection every day, even when it is raining, cloudy or when you are indoors;
  5. Listen to your skin - everyone is different. Does anything feel stimulating? Will it be super red or do you have other customers? Stop and, if necessary, consult with an expert!

Good luck with your new skincare routine!
