Help with skincare routine

Hey, I need some advise for my nighttime skincare routine. I use the Paula’s choice 2% BHA liquid exfoliant nightly, and recently added the youth to the people retinal + nicinamide serum to my routine. Are they safe to use in the same night? My skin isn’t sensitive, I just want to make sure it’s not clashing. Thanks in advance 🤍

Re: Help with skincare routine

@Flowerella  Those 2 products won't counteract or cancel each other out. The only reason not to use them together is your skin's tolerance. Even though your skin's not sensitive, you might still want to ease off on the BHA or switch it to AM use while you gradually introduce the retinaldehyde product to your skin. Retinal's less irritating than tretinoin—and for me, it's less irritating than retinol—but that doesn't mean it can't send your skin into tantrum mode if you're not careful.

Thank you so much! I’ll just use on different nights then to be safe. I appreciate you ☺️
