If itโ€™s your first time with retinol, donโ€™t use it with other active ingredients. If itโ€™s a serum, use it after cleansing (or toner-essence steps if you use them) but make sure to put on dry skin to avoid irritation. If itโ€™s more creamy, you can do the sandwich method: moisturizer-retinol-moisturizer. If your skin got used to retinol, you can add niacinamide in the same routine, they work well together. You can use it with other ingredients but itโ€™s better not to use with exfoliators, vitamin C and benzoyl peroxide.

I actually use retinol after everything + moisturizer because my skin is very sensitive. Please donโ€™t layer any bha or aha with your retinol! it will make your skin very irritated and possibly very red if itโ€™s really bad
