With thousands of skin care products on the market, knowing which ones can be mixed with others and which ones can't be tricky.
And although it is quite possible to lay a layer in it, there are others that are not only less effective, but that can cause your skin to react rather brutally.
Problems that you may encounter when combining the wrong ingredients can be overloaded skin, redness and irritation.
So which products should you ensure that you never mix together?
Not all skin care products work well with others, which means that it is always important to read the ingredient list thoroughly (stock image)
1. Vitamin C with acids
According to beauty experts at Better houses and gardens, if you use a product that contains vitamin C, make sure you are not layered over a product that contains acids.
Acid-based skin care includes products made with glycolic, lactic or salicylic acid.
Skin care with vitamin C is known for its ability to repair the skin, smooth the skin tone and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
The publication reports that if vitamin C is used above or below a product that contains skin rejuvenating acids, vitamin C will become unusable.

According to the Australian skincare retailer, what order should you apply Mecca to skin care?
1. Cleaning agent
2. Mask for unclogging or cleaning up
3. Toner, essence, moisturizing or treatment masks
4. Serums and treatments
5. Eye serum, eye cream
6. Facial moisturizer, facial oil, facial fog
2. Retinol with acids
Skin care infused with retinol stimulates collagen production and cell renewal, which can remove acne and smooth skin.
Because the ingredient needs to be converted at the cellular level, it can leave the skin dry, red and slightly irritated (all side effects that disappear after a few months).
Skin care with glycolic acid, lactic acid or salicylic acid used in combination with retinol, which also act as exfoliants, can interact with retinol and irritate the skin.
3. Retinol with vitamin C
Vitamin C and retinol are both effective as independent ingredients to combat the signs of aging.
Experts from Better Homes & Garden, however, state that they should not be used together.
& # 39; Not only does it increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun, but it will also make your skin feel red and irritated, & # 39 ;, says the publication.
Niacinamide, also known as vitamin B3, is praised by beauty buffs for its ability to reduce the appearance of skin blemishes and congestion
4. Niacinamide with vitamin C.
Niacinamide, also known as vitamin B3, is praised by beauty buffs for its ability to reduce the appearance of skin blemishes and congestion.
According to Paula Begoun, founder of Paula & # 39; s Choice, the ingredient has numerous benefits, including better hydration and fewer signs of aging.
& # 39; Extensive research has shown that niacinamide works to protect the skin against environmental damage and also helps the skin to produce more collagen and hyaluronic acid, & # 39; she said.
& # 39; It improves hydration, reduces signs of aging, reduces enlarged pores and reduces skin size considerably. & # 39;
Products containing glycolic or lactic acid have different strengths and are considered milder than products containing salicylic acid
However, it is worth nothing, niacinamide – found in face creams, serums, toners and cleansers – should not be layered below or above vitamin C, as this will make your skin red and cause outbreaks.
5. Never mix acids
Acids, including glycolic acid, lactic acid or salicylic acid, exfoliate the skin surface by penetrating the pores.
Products that contain glycolic or lactic acid have different strengths. Both are considered relatively mild and neither will penetrate the skin too deeply.
If your skin is more problematic, salicylic acid cosmetics can help.
This is because the acid not only exfoliates, but also neutralizes bacteria that cause outbreaks.
Regardless of what you use, make sure you never mix products, as this may cause painful skin reactions.
