Dermatologists have named the ingredients that should never be combined in skin care

Dermatologists have named the active ingredients in cosmetics that should not be combined

Using skincare products in your daily routine is not only a trend but also a must-have procedure for maintaining healthy skin. However, in the pursuit of perfect care and the desire to get the fastest possible result, you can cause a lot of damage, including burns, redness, dryness, and sensitivity.

To avoid unpleasant situations, you should carefully choose your care products and look for the ingredients in them that dermatologists told Allure magazine about. First of all, you shouldn't buy a bunch of different products that are supposed to help with your care – the three most important ones are enough: skin cleanser, cream, sunscreen, and, if you want, you can add an active ingredient in the form of a toner or serum.

What absolutely cannot be combined:

  • Retinol and AHA acids (lactic and glycolic acids).

"This duo is a recipe for redness and irritation," said Ranella Hirsch, a dermatologist from Boston, USA. If you inadvertently have to mix these two active ingredients, you should use a soothing and anti-inflammatory mask or cream.

  • Citric acid with anything.

"It's an ingredient in many moisturizers, and when you put it on other products, it causes irritation," Hirsch explained. "In particular, it's easy to spot in a product because it's labeled as citric acid.

  • Retinol and salicylic acid/benzoyl peroxide.

Using salicylic acid and retinol at the same time causes dryness and redness. Instead, if you use retinol with benzoyl peroxide, both products will not work. "The two ingredients have been proven to deactivate each other," said Miami dermatologist Fredric Brandt.

  • Vitamin C and AHA acids (lactic and glycolic acids).

"They change the pH (acidity) of vitamin C so much that they destabilize it, making the antioxidant ineffective," explained David Bank, a dermatologist from New York.
