Not sure about my serums

Hi, My skin doesn’t tolerate most vitamin c serums, but it handles the vanicream well, I want more antioxidants so I’m using the Inkey list Q10 serum. Does it make sense for me to layer both serums, or should I blend them in my hand, or should I just use one at a time and alternate days? I appreciate any thoughts you’d like to share, including suggestions for improving my routine. Thanks a lot.

Good news is your serums are gentle and unlikely to irritate sensitive skin. They are also most likely helpful for your skin barrier. At the same time, you might have the same results without them - you could try an experiment dropping them for a couple of weeks and see if you see any negative change in your skin. If you don't, this would simplify your routine. If you'd like to try something instead of the serums you are using now, I'd look into something with 4-6% of niacinamide
