Why are Retinol and Vitamin C your best friends for life?

In the era of TikTok we are bombarded by information that comes from everyone, but we need to be very careful when it comes to skincare advice. At ThEye we realized that lately more and more dermatologists and beauty gurus are talking about the importance of Retinol and Vitamin C for the skin and if you want to know why you need to read until the end.

Retinol (a sort of vitamin A) helps to regenerate new skin cells. This ingredient will boost the cell turnover process, so it will help your skin to look younger and healthier.

Vitamin C on the other hand is an antioxidant, it helps to neutralize free radicals and molecules that damage your skin cells. If we only look at the beauty benefits of this vitamin, it reduces dark spots, fills fine lines and it brightens up your skin.

This is how these two magic ingredients work individually, but, why is the combo so powerful?

Even though some people say that Vitamin C can render ineffective the power of Retinol, studies have shown how this instead can increase its effectiveness and, together they can help heal your skin from the everyday damage and slow down the skin aging process.

Retinol and Vitamin C are intense ingredients, so be careful when using them. Use them 3 times a week to allow your skin to absorb and heal with a short break.

Use Vitamin C in the morning to brighten up your skin and defend it from the UV rays, Retinol before sleeping, it will help to reduce wrinkles and fine lines while you are resting.
