Is it OK to use Vitamin C serum right after I used the Retin A cream?

Doctor Answers 2

Vitamin C serum and Retin-A

Yes, you can use both of these together, HOWEVER, I would actually recommend you use the Vitamin C serum in the morning (which is when it's most effective), and the Retin-A at night, because it can make you sun sensitive. This would make the products most effective.

Yes to the products

Yes both these products can be used together. Vit A and C work well together.

Hope you get the results your looking for.
