AHAs/BHAs and Vitamins


I am currently wanting to incorporate AHAs and/or BHAs into my beauty routine. However, I am already using Vitamin C (mornings) and Retinol.

I have read conflicting accounts about whether you can have AHAs and BHAs with Vitamins C/Retinol simultaneously in your skincare routine. Some say yes, it's fine...only if you avoid retinoids. Some say no. Some say only if you use AHA/BHA as a cleanser (i.e. toner) but not as a full-on active.



  • AHA/BHAs combined with retinol can be too irritating for some people.
