The Skin Cream Ingredients: You Should Never Mix and Match!



If you're anything like me, you pile at least three skin-care products on your face each morning. Right now, my routine includes a moisturizing essence (which feels like water on your skin), an antioxidant vitamin C serum (my current fave isSkinCeuticals C E Ferulic), and a sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher (like Obagi Professional-C Suncare SPF 30). If you don't already layer your skin care, it's a good idea to start: Dermatologists say it traps more active ingredients against your skin, so every product you use works better. But you before you get all mixologist on your face, you should know that some skin-care ingredients do not play nice together. Here's your do-not-mix list:

Retinol and alpha hydroxy acids, like glycol and lactic acids. "This duo is a recipe for redness and irritation," says Ranella Hirsch, a dermatologist in Boston. If you do mix them, the fastest way to calm skin is by popping an anti-inflammatory, like aspirin, and smoothing on hydrocortisone cream.

Citric acid with anything. We know what you’re thinking: What's citric acid? "It's an ingredient in lots of moisturizers, and when you layer it with other products, it causes irritation," says Hirsch. (It's listed as citric acid on the ingredient list, so it's easy to spot.)

Retinol and acne treatments. Using salicylic acid and retinol at the same time causes dryness and redness. Mixing benzoyl peroxide with retinol has the opposite effect: "The two ingredients have been shown to deactivate each other," says Fredric Brandt, a dermatologist in New York City and Miami.

Vitamin C and alpha hydroxy acids. "They change the pH of vitamin C enough to destabilize it, making the antioxidant ineffective," says David Bank, a dermatologist in Mount Kisco, New York. If you're wearing a serum with glycolic acid, pick serums with heartier antioxidants, like green tea and resveratrol.

"SLEEP WRINKLES": FACT OR FICTION?




         
         
8/28/14
       
                     
        As if there weren't already enough things causing wrinkles while you're awake—smiling, frowning, sipping from a straw, probably breathing—it turns out even sleeping can be line-inducing. Those creases you wake up with after you've face-planted for a long night's rest? Not so harmless. "They are caused by the skin crunching against a pillowcase and breaking down collagen and elastic tissue," explains dermatologist Debra Jaliman, the author of Skin Rules. With time and repetition, that creates a permanent wrinkle. "When you are young, like in your 20s and 30s, you have good collagen and elastic tissue," says Jaliman. "But when you're older, it's a problem. The skin isn't as resilient."

So how to prevent these tricky wrinkles of the night? You've probably seen ads for "anti-aging pillows" on late-night T.V. While they might seem gimmicky, Jaliman says that there's science behind the claim. Because sleep wrinkles are caused by the friction of rubbing against your pillow, you can buy silk pillowcases, which slide rather than pull against your skin, or you can simply learn to sleep on your back. If that's so uncomfortable it leaves you sacrificing your beauty sleep altogether, try something like the JuveRest Sleep Wrinkle Pillow, which cradles your head in a way that allows you to stay in your position of choice without compression.
