Collagen production slows down after a certain age, which causes the skin to age and becomes thinner and weaker. Fine lines, wrinkles and dull skin are starting to dominate! Hence, it is essential to upgrade your essential beauty products and research the right products for your skin type after research. Evolve towards products that promote cell regeneration, collagen production and strengthen the skin’s natural defenses.
While a few fundamental skin care ingredients have become easily recognizable names, retinol is continually crucial to the discussion. We’ve all heard of it, but many of us aren’t sure what it is or how it works.
When it comes to reversing premature aging, active ingredients like retinol and glycolic acid get a lot of airtime. A retinol, if applied properly, has the power to prevent fine lines and wrinkles, lighten dull skin, treat acne, shrink pores, and possibly fade dark spots.
So basically it stretches and speeds up the “cell recharge”. Routine application can bring you closer to younger looking skin on a noticeable level. But let’s not forget about the side effects they come with, to name a few – dry skin, redness, itching, rashes, sensitivity to the sun, and many more.
That’s why the best bet is to switch to Bakuchiol. The safer and equally effective alternative to herbal vitamin A and retinol.
Billed as an effective alternative to retinol, bakuchiol originated in India. It is a plant commonly used in Ayurvedic medicines to heal, calm and soothe the skin, due to its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. It also has roots in natural Chinese medicine.
The impregnation of Bakuchiol into the skin triggers the genetic pathway in the skin cells to create several
types of collagen useful for healthy skin.
Bakuchiol is a potent herbal extract derived from the leaves and seeds of the Babchi plant and is vegan. It has gained momentum lately in the skin care arena for all good reasons. Exceptional for smoothing fine lines and providing unparalleled softness, Bakuchiol is a hydration treat for all skin types. It is also a fantastic collagen booster!
Bakuchiol is a deeply regenerating and anti-aging formulation suitable for use – both morning and evening. In the active day phase and the regenerative night phase, Bakuchiol works with the cycles of your skin. It doesn’t sacrifice skin health while providing the benefits of reducing the signs of aging and can be used every day, morning and night.
Since Bakuchiol is safe for all skin types, including sensitive skin, it is precisely in this that it is much better than retinol. It does not cause any irritation even on sensitive skin.
