I've been a beauty editor for many years now, but I do admit that I still get confused with mixing and matching products for my routine. There are certain actives when layered over each other do more harm than good. On the flip side, some ingredients bring out the best qualities of each other. 

To make things easier for all of us, I create a simple guide that shows the best skincare ingredients that work better together. Hope this helps!

The Best Skincare Ingredients To Mix For Clear, Glowing Skin

Niacinamide + Vitamin C

Also known as The Brightening Duo

Niacinamide and vitamin C are two ingredients that are known to even out the skin tone. The good thing about boosting your brightening routine with niacinamide is that it helps strengthen your skin barrier and prevent acne.

AHA + BHA + Niacinamide

Also known as The Power Trio

Name a better trio, I'll wait. AHA, BHA, and niacinamide are amazing together. Both acids help exfoliate your skin and tackle pigmentation. AHA evens out the skin tone, and BHA purifies the pores. Niacinamide creates a soothing layer and strengthens your oil-moisture barrier. (Too much skincare jargon? These ingredients will give the glowiest skin of your life!)

AHA + BHA + Hyaluronic Acid

Also known as The Glowy Trinity

I can't stop raving about acids! Ever since I've introduced them to my skincare routine, I rarely had massive breakouts. The downside of working with exfoliating ingredients like AHAs and BHAs is that you may overdo it. The best way to avoid this is to alternate AHAs and BHAs every night and to make sure that you apply hyaluronic acid product after.

Retinol + Cica

Also known as High and Low

Retinol is a strong active ingredient that renews the skin surface, fades spots, and treats acne. Some may find the formula *too much* so it is advised that they gradually incorporate it into their routines. You can calm down your complexion with the help of cica, a soothing skincare ingredient.
