A Powerful Retinol Alternative for All Skin Types, Without Any Irritation!

A Powerful Retinol Alternative for All Skin Types, Without Any Irritation!

March 02, 2022

All of us have had that moment where we look in the mirror and curse our skin! Maybe you had a zit that popped up overnight, or blemishes that just won’t go away!

As frustrating as your skin may be at times, you may be surprised to learn that your skin is quite powerful and if you treat it with a little love and care, your days of cursing the mirror will soon become few and far between.

One of the many ways your skin expresses it’s incredible power is by shedding dead skin cells to make space for new, smooth skin! The only issue with this however is that as we age, the time between this shedding of dead skin cells becomes further and further away which may lead to all sorts of unfortunate skin problems (clogged pores, blackheads, acne, to name a few!).

Thankfully Retinol is a well known and long used Vitamin A derivative that can speed up this process so you are sure to be left with that gorgeous skin you’re after.

Retinol can be a bit too potent for some though and may have unwanted side-effects, but there is an alternative! In this article, we’ll look into this alternative known as Bakuchiol and exactly how it benefits your skin!

Why Bakuchiol over Retinol?

An oil derived from the leaves and seeds of the Psoralea corylifolia plant (also known as babchi), bakuchiol is a gentler version of retinol, but comes with the same powerful anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, as well as antibacterial effects!

This plant-based skin miracle treatment was actually quite popular back in the 1970’s, however seemed to fade away until just recently! Lucky you!

When compared to retinol, bakuchiol has been shown to have the exact same skin regeneration perks, without all the headache inducing side-effects! If you’ve tried retinol and found it has negative effects on your skin, this is your ideal alternative!

What are the benefits of using Bakuchiol?

Bakuchiol has a heap of excellent benefits, making it ideal for all skin types, including sensitive, oily/acne prone and mature skin.

Stimulating cell turnover, you can say goodbye to redness, breakouts and irritation; and of course with it’s powerful anti-aging properties you’ll experience less fine lines, wrinkles, as well as loss of elasticity and photo-damage.

If used regularly, you will also begin to notice brighter skin with softer skin texture, and a clinically proven boost in skin firmness!

Where do I find Bakuchiol?

As with any other skincare product, it’s important you do your due diligence and make sure the ingredients are pure or you may just be paying for an expensive bottle of fillers!
