Sure, you can mix Retinol and Ascorbic Acid skincare. I have applied both simultaneously with no ill-fated consequences – sensitivities, irritation, or blemishes. Just because I can, does not mean that you should. Before blending the two proven and costly skincare, let’s weigh the pros/cons.
Applied topically, alpha lipoic acid improves skin smoothness and tone through antioxidant protection, repair and re-generation. Thanks to dual solubility, it outperforms most other single antioxidants by neutralizing both water-soluble and lipid-soluble free radicals. Saturating the skin with anti-aging, anti-inflammatory and brightening capabilities, it is an effective choice for most skin types.
Hacking plants for protection from biological and environmental stressors is an ancient concept, deeply rooted in Herbal, Traditional Chinese, and Ayurvedic Medicines. First appearing in 1947, adaptogens are experiencing a renaissance in today’s skincare and wellness community.
Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin essential for the synthesis/maintenance of collagen. The human body is incapable of synthesizing or storing Vitamin C, relying instead on dietary and/or supplemental replenishment.
Mounting scientific research is making it hard to deny the detrimental effects of pollution on the skin, as harmful as tobacco or solar radiation. Pollution can disrupt collagen production, impair skin barrier function, and amplify free radical damage. Thankfully, mitigating the risks to your skin is possible without having to live in a bubble.
