For skincare fanatics like us, a working knowledge of what products work best with other products and what products to avoid mixing is crucial. Whether you’re caring for skin that’s recently undergone laser hair removal treatment or not, knowing these few pernicious combos can save you from unwanted breakouts, rashes or other ill effects.
Vitamin C and Benzoyl Peroxide
Though not a caustic combination, using these two products concurrently will effectively cancel them each out. Ingesting vitamin C is recommended by many dermatologists, but be aware that topical applications of benzoyl peroxide will oxidize the vitamin c, rendering them both useless.
Salicylic Acid and Glycolic Acid
Glycolic acid is an exfoliator while salicylic acid fights acne breakouts. When used together, they have the potential to create dry, sensitive patches of skin that can be painful and unsightly.
Retin-A and Toner
Another super dehydrating combination, Retin-A, and store-bought toners can create a drying effect that will leave your skin worse for wear. Toners can contain ingredients that purposefully dry skin, so avoid using them if Retin-A is part of your skincare routine.
