NEW THE ORDINARY REGIMENS! If you’re new to The Ordinary and totally confused, I highly recommend buying a complete regimen. This will save you time, money and a lot of stress. It will also save you worrying about products that can and cannot be used together.

The Original Deciem Routines & Regimens

The regimens below are the original regimens from 2016 and since then, Deciem has updated the conflicts and it is not recommended to use acids, retinol & direct vitamin c in the same routine. There are many other conflicts, therefore, always check The Ordinary conflicts chart and the official Deciem page before using any of the products together.

The Ordinary Regimen for Pigmentation

Note: The vitamin c derivatives never had any conflicts. In November 2020, Deciem said not to use any vitamin c with the Niacinamide powder. Then Deciem said not to use the derivatives with Niacinamide powder or the serum. Deciem then said if you have used Niacinamide serum with vitamin c derivatives without any irritation, you may continue to do so. (This is very Deciem).

You may find how to layer The Ordinary useful and The Ordinary products you can and cannot mix.

It´s really important to introduce one product at a time and always patch test. If you rush in and apply 2 or 3 products and have a reaction, you will have no idea which product caused it.

Always refer to the official website for instructions and ingredients of each product. Patch testing is highly recommended.
