As I’ve blogged about previously, I consider retinol the tried and true ‘fountain of youth.’ Retinol is in a league of its own when it comes to anti-aging and is a skincare routine necessity. However, I know many of you (including myself) who have struggled with its harsh side effects. It took years to tweak my skincare regime to be able to start and stop my use of retinol without having to deal with the side effects of dry, flaky, irritated and red skin. For those of you who swore it off because of its irritating side effects, let me share some good news….BAKUCHIOL! This exciting skincare newby is a plant-based, natural alternative to retinol. Skincare lines are now introducing anti-aging products containing Bakuchiol because it has the same benefits as retinol without the harsh side effects.
Strivectin recently released its Starlight retinol night oil which is a Bakuchiol based anti-aging oil. Studies released by Strivectin showed that those who used the product had zero irritation while all subjects saw 100% improvement in fine lines, wrinkles and skin texture. OLEHENRIKSEN has also released Glow Cycle Retin-Alt Power Serum which is a blend of Bakuchiol, alpha hydroxy acids and extracts that help to lighten sunspots and targets fine lines and wrinkles.
I cannot tell you how excited I am to share this news with you. If you are one of many who have had a negative experience with retinol and have sworn it off, why not consider one of these products containing Bakuchiol and start seeing your renewed skin today!
