vitamin C + niacinamide

As researchers suggest that it is safe to combine Vitamin C and niacinamide in the same routine I was just wondering with one should be applied first? The products I have are both serums and are the same consistency. What are your thoughts??

I've read that when combining products, it's best to go from thin to thick when it comes to consistency EXCEPT for products containing actives such as vitamin c and retinol. When you use serums containing actives, it is best to put them first regardless of consistency because you want it to be absorbed by the skin first. So I think in your case, it's best to put vitamin c first before putting niacinamide in case you want to layer your products :)

i would personally use vitamín C in the morning and niacinamide in the evening but if you want to use them both in one routine, I would start with vitamin C 😊

I used to do that, but now I use another serum in the evening, so was trying to figure how to combine them all. Have too many serums🤦🏻‍♀️🤣

I use them together in one routine without any problems, and I apply Vitamin C first, Niacinamide second.

I've read about how to combining this two products. Simply using the Vitamine C in the morning then apply niacinamide at night. If you find some allergic signs, please stop using this combining..
