Retinol can be great at its job targeting multiple skin concerns, but it is also potentially irritating to the skin and comes with its complications, especially for individuals with very sensitive skin! However, there is a significant 100% alternative of retinol that can still give your skin amazing benefits and results, without the harsh effects!
Bakuchiol is a botanical extract from the plant called Psoralea Corylifolia, and is naturally found with the same benefits as retinol. A big drawback of retinol lies in it causing the skin to become more sensitive and susceptible to sun damage. With Bakuchiol, it nourishes the skin without such side effects. Similarly, Bakuchiol helps the boosting of collagen to improve skin elasticity and the reduction of wrinkles. It also helps in cell regeneration, to heal wounds more quickly and to brighten up the skin while in the process of doing so.
Bakuchiol also evens out your skin tone and helps in smoothing out fine lines and signs of ageing, making it an anti-ageing superstar!
Retinols on the other hand, although effective, can bring about negative side effects, such as burning and stinging sensations, and even peeling or visible redness as well that can be unsightly and difficult to get rid of, especially when you are trying to use retinol to target other skin concerns. By using bakuchiol, it can in fact, help with the flaking and prevent redness and inflammation.
Bakuchiol is definitely a better alternative for individuals with sensitive skin and acne-prone skin to improve skin texture, as well as lightening hyperpigmentation. It is also a safe retinol alternative for pregnant and nursing mothers to use!
Bakuchiol can be found in Dream Capsule Overnight Sleeping Mask - Helps to plump up the skin overnight for that 12-hour beauty sleep look and seal everything in to prevent evaporation of moisture! This 100% safe retinol alternative also helps to erase fine fines, hyperpigmentation and wrinkles!
