How To Combine Skincare Actives

Always make sure you understand what the ingredients are prior to choosing any ingredients. Figure out the one issue you want to work on and then look to what aides it. With Nuez Acres with use Vegan Pure Pecan Oil with only 2 or 3 Essential Oils / Beauty Oil that compliment each other and help target the skin issues we are looking to help.

How do I combine actives in skincare?


Try to combine actives with calming ingredients to avoid irritation. When you formulate active ingredients with soothing ones you find a great balance for your skin. Look for products that combine actives like retinol or AHAs with skin-soothing hyaluronic acid or ceramides. Target one skincare concern at a time

Don't mix: Retinol with vitamin C, benzoyl peroxide (BPO) or alpha and beta hydroxy acids, otherwise known as AHAs and BHAs (glycolic acid and salicylic acid). Layering these products one after the other could cause irritation.

6 Skin-Care Ingredient Combinations That Don't Mix
  • Retinoid or Retinol and Alpha Hydroxy Acid
  • Retinoid or Retinol and Benzoyl Peroxide
  • Retinoid or Retinol and Vitamin C
  • Retinoid or Retinol and Salicylic Acid
  • Soap-Based Cleanser and Vitamin C
  • Two Products With the Same Actives
How many actives can you use at once?
We suggest a maximum of two or three serums comes down to layering and penetration. Industry brands, salons and experts recommend leaving time between applying your serums and moisturizers, and doing it in a specific order so as to allow all of the ingredients to actually sink into your epidermis.
We always suggest using out Vegan Skin Repair Serum made with pure pecan oil at night time as the bergamot in our formulation can react with direct sunshine and apply our Vegan Skin Serum made with pure pecan oil in the day as it helps retains moisture in your skin as you move throughout your day to day life.
