Can I use niacinamide with vitamin C?
Here’s the good news: Yes, you can use products that contain vitamin C with products that contain niacinamide in your skin care routine.
Is vitamin C or niacinamide better for skin?
Both vitamin C and niacinamide increase the natural production of ceramides in your skin which helps to strengthen your skin barrier, keep your skin hydrated, and reduce irritation. However, niacinamide is probably the better option for sensitive skin as it’s usually gentler than vitamin C.
Do you use vitamin C before or after niacinamide?
If you’re applying them together, you should apply Vitamin C first, followed by hyaluronic acid or niacinamide. Don’t use it with AHAs, BHAs, and retinol at once. You can use it in low concentrations of AHA and BHA in your routine on alternate nights – Vitamin C one night and retinol the other.
