Re: benzoyl peroxide and niacinamide?


Yes, you can use both in the same routine. I've read though that benzoyl peroxide works best when you use it first, and give it a minute or two to soak's the one outlier to the "thinnest to thickest" rule. After a minute, then you can go back with your serum and moisturizer. 😊
