Facial serums often perform different functions. While many do treat similar problems, some people may need more than one serum to treat different concerns. However, using serums can be daunting for those new to it, or skincare in general. So, let’s look at the question, “Can you mix different face serums?”
The answer is yes, but you should be strategic and thoughtful about it. For example, you do not need two Vitamin C serums. Many serums have Vitamin C in them. Our ferulic acid serum contains enough Vitamin C that another Vitamin C serum is usually unnecessary. However, you could use a retinol or niaminicide serum in conjunction with ferulic acid serum or Vitamin C based serum.
It should be noted that each serum should be applied separately. Mixing serums can have adverse effects and also may cause breakouts or increased irritation or sensitivity. Apply them in order of thickness. Use the thinner serum first and then the thicker one. Generally, skin experts do not recommend using more than two serums. Though, there are rare cases where they may advise this.
