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
