Ask Our Esthetician’s: Using Skincare with Vitamin C & Retin A

Curious about these two powerhouse ingredients?  They both provide great benefits for your skin, such as softening or eliminating wrinkles, building collagen, and offering other anti-aging benefits, but can they be used together at the same time?  The answer according to our Estheticians is a definite “no”.  They recommend using your serums or creams containing vitamin C in the morning, especially because it will protect against free radicals.  Whereas, products with the superpower ingredient, Retin A (also Renova – more gentle form) is best used when skin repairs itself anyway, which would be as you catch your Zzzzzzzzz’s!

Bottom line, taking time for a serious skincare regimen has enormous benefits that you will see over time.  When these two skin changing ingredients are used properly, you will slowly see the years rolling backwards!  For an appointment with one of our Estheticians, give us a call at 203-656-5656.  And, if you have any questions in the beauty/hair/personal care arena, we would love to help!  Send us a message on Facebook or Instagram and we will get you the answers!

Have a Beautiful Day!  xoxo

As an award winning salon and spa, we only use the very best products out there, and always research and try them out on ourselves!  That is why we use Extreme Lashes.  They are simply the BEST!  Here is an excerpt from their website:

“Your ultimate answer for longer, darker, fuller, and more lifted eyelashes. Developed to mimic your natural eyelashes, single or multiple Xtreme Lashes Eyelash Extensions are applied to a single eyelash, resulting in a gorgeous, natural appearance.

Using a proprietary adhesive, Xtreme Lashes Eyelash Extensions are only applied by a trained and certified Xtreme Lashes Lash Stylist. Xtreme Lashes Eyelash Extensions are not traditional false eyelashes, eyelash flares or implants.

Safe and comfortable to wear, Xtreme Lashes Eyelash Extensions are never applied directly to your skin or eyelid. With routine touch ups every two weeks, you can have amazing eyelashes”
