2) benzoyl peroxide + retinoids = dryness & mild to severe irritation can occur, to avoid this use them in different routines. Benzoyl Peroxide in morning routine and Retinoids in P.M. routine


3) retinol + salicylic acid = dryness, severe acne conditions, inflammation, Use Salicylic Acid in the morning routine and Retinol in the night skincare routine.


4) retinoids + AHA/BHA = irritation, redness, inflammation. Use them at alternate nights/routines.


5) vitamin c + AHA/BHA = both are pH-dependent to be active. Use Vitamin C in the morning routine and AHA/BHA in the night skincare routine.


6) BHA + benzoyl peroxide = irritation, redness, peeling, dryness. Use them on alternate routines.


💧 It is not that these ingredients can’t be used together and there wouldn’t be any side effects using them together!
