3 Ingredient Combinations To Avoid With Vitamin C Serum

Posted by Dr.Divneet Kaur on

Hey there, skincare enthusiasts! We're back with some essential skincare tips, and today we're diving deep into the world of Vitamin C serum. If you've been following Dermabay Skincare, you already know how passionate we are about healthy, glowing skin. Our Dermabay Vitamin C Face Serum has been a fan favorite for its remarkable benefits, but there are a few things you should know when it comes to using it effectively.

So, grab your favorite beverage, get cozy, and let's talk about three ingredient combinations you should steer clear of when using Vitamin C serum. Remember, our goal is to help you achieve radiant skin while making the most out of your skincare routine.

1. Vitamin C and Retinol

Let's start with a common mistake that many skincare enthusiasts make – combining Vitamin C and Retinol in their skincare routine. While both ingredients offer remarkable benefits individually, using them together can lead to unwanted skin reactions.

Why? Well, both Vitamin C and Retinol are powerful ingredients that can be a bit too much for your skin when used together. They have different pH levels and work best at different times of the day. Vitamin C is usually applied in the morning, while Retinol is better suited for your nighttime routine.

Our Tip: To maximize the benefits of both ingredients, use our Dermabay Vitamin C Face Serum in the morning and a Retinol-based product in the evening. This way, you'll avoid any potential skin irritations and allow each ingredient to work its magic effectively.

2. Vitamin C and Benzoyl Peroxide

Another ingredient combination to be cautious of is Vitamin C and Benzoyl Peroxide, commonly found in acne treatments. While both are excellent for your skin individually, they don't play well together.

Why? Benzoyl Peroxide is known to oxidize Vitamin C, which means it can render your Vitamin C serum less effective. This is a big no-no if you're looking to get the most out of your skincare products.

Our Tip: If you're dealing with acne and want to incorporate Vitamin C into your routine, apply our Dermabay Vitamin C Face Serum in the morning and use your Benzoyl Peroxide treatment at night. This way, you can reap the benefits of both without compromising their effectiveness.

3. Vitamin C and Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs)

Last but not least, let's talk about Vitamin C and Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs), such as glycolic acid or lactic acid. AHAs are excellent exfoliants, but using them in conjunction with Vitamin C can be a recipe for skin irritation.

Why? Both Vitamin C and AHAs can be acidic, and using them together can increase the risk of sensitivity and redness. It's essential to balance these ingredients to prevent any adverse reactions.

Our Tip: To achieve that radiant complexion, alternate between using our Dermabay Vitamin C Face Serum in the morning and your AHA product in the evening. This way, you can exfoliate and brighten your skin without overloading it with acids.


In conclusion, while Vitamin C is undoubtedly a superstar in the skincare world, it's essential to be mindful of the ingredient combinations you use. By avoiding these three combinations, you'll be well on your way to achieving healthier, glowing skin.

Remember, our Dermabay Vitamin C Face Serum is specially formulated to deliver maximum benefits without any of the unwanted side effects of incompatible ingredient pairings. So, go ahead, give it a try, and let your skin radiate with confidence!

That's all for today's skincare advice. Stay tuned for more tips and tricks from Dermabay Skincare. Until then, take good care of your beautiful skin!
