Habit Hack: Pairing Retinol with Other Ingredients

Introduction to Synergistic Skincare

Synergistic skincare involves combining various skincare ingredients that collaborate to amplify each other's effects. When executed effectively, it yields effective results, promotes healthier skin, and optimises your skincare routine.

Complementary Ingredients

  • Hyaluronic Acid: Recognised for its hydrating properties, it helps alleviate the dryness often associated with retinol.
  • Niacinamide: This ingredient synergises effectively with retinol, diminishing redness and enhancing the skin’s barrier function, resulting in improved texture.
  • Glycerin: Boasting humectant properties, glycerin attracts moisture to the skin, counterbalancing potential dryness caused by retinol use.

Ingredients to Avoid

  • Benzoyl Peroxide: May deactivate retinol, and can cause significant dryness and irritation.
  • Vitamin C: Varied pH levels may destabilise retinol, potentially causing skin irritation when used concurrently.
  • Other forms of Vitamin A: Simultaneous usage of multiple vitamin A derivatives can amplify skin sensitivity and irritation.
