Can you mix your face serums?

Can you mix your face serums?

Have you ever been undecided as to what face serum or beauty product to buy because they both have ingredients that you want?  That’s a common dilemma that is easily solved. Get them both!

Some beauty products you can, and probably should, mix are facial serums.  Since they have different formulas to treat different skin issues (i.e, wrinkles, dark spots, acne, dehydration) it makes sense to use two different formulas if you have skin issues that require both.

Two Is Better Than One

If your skin is looking dry, dull, loose and wrinkles are forming, then choosing a serum with Hyaluronic Acid will help draw moisture to the skin while supporting the production of collagen to firm up the support bands beneath it to make it smoother and firmer. That will diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles.

Dull skin can use a healthy dose of Vitamin C to help speed healing of damaged skin cells, so choosing a serum with that and combining it with the other can give you great results.

To cut down on time spent waiting for products to soak in before you add another, if you are using two serums, apply them at different times. Use one in the morning then layer on a moisturizer with sunscreen. Put the other on after you wash your face at night and then seal it in with a nighttime cream.

Proceed With Care

It is important to remember that some ingredients should not be mixed together. Mixing retinol and Benzoyl Peroxide can cause serious irritation.  Avoid mixing the lightener hydroquinone with glycolic acid for the same reason, too.  Copper Peptides and vitamin C do not play well together either.

Basically, make sure you are not doubling up on products designed to do the same thing because you will get too much of a good thing. When in doubt consult your dermatologist.

One To Try

Fortunately there are serums that combine a lot of different botanicals and compounds to address a wide range of issues like the signs of aging, dry skin and dullness to make your complexion more radiant. Bonapiel Vitamin  Facial Serum is one such product.  Using it will address dryness, loss of elasticity and give you a more glowing complexion. Following it with a rich moisturizer like the Anti-Aging Moisturizer with Matrixylmay be all you need to keep your face looking radiant.
