Reinol, Vit C and DMAE together?

I have researched products and have invested in all of these recently, but I'm not sure if I should use all three together...?

For all the skin care experts, should I alternate DMAE with Vit C? Is Vit C okay to wear during the day, under a sunscreen, of course?

Should I just alternate Vit C and retinol and night. Can I use them all? Thanks in advance :icon_smile:

    You should use vitamin c and sunscreen during the day. I don't know about DMAE.

    FWIW, I had to give up my Vit C because the combination of it and Retin-A (not applied at the same time) was too drying during winter. For that reason, I wonder if you should use the retinol at night.

    Also there is an interesting article in the newest issue of Allure about how sunscreens may create free radicals and lead to more damage unless used in combination with vitamin C.
