As we step into our 30s, many of us see and feel more changes in our skin—less plump skin, fine lines, and wrinkles—and these are all part of life. However, that’s not saying we can’t do anything about it! Seeking to slow down these early signs of aging to maintain a youthful glow? We have good news: It’s never too early (or too late) to start taking care of your skin. After all, a proactive approach in skincare can make all the difference.
The quest for the fountain of youth goes on, prompting a surge in the demand for anti-aging products. The result? More ingredients are being introduced in the market to address premature skin aging. An example is the crowd-favorite retinol.
There’s no denying that retinol has become a holy grail skincare ingredient because of its strong anti-aging benefits. However, it can also be harsh, irritating, and can cause skin dryness and redness. Considering these, there are also many dos and don’ts to take note of when applying retinol, requiring you to be extra careful as you include it in your skincare regimen (oops!). But worry not! Remember this truth bomb: you don’t have to settle for the “tiis-ganda” skincare.
You can now achieve a youthful glow without the pain and risk. Want to know how? (*drum rolls, please*) Try bakuchiol.
Bakuchiol 101: a natural retinol alternative without the irritation
Bakuchiol is a plant-based ingredient that is known to be a natural and gentle alternative to retinol. As per Harvard Health Publishing, Bakuchiol is derived from the seeds of Psoralea corylifolia, also known as the babchi plant. It’s been used in both traditional Chinese and Indian Ayurvedic medicine for centuries.
Just like retinol, it is said to improve skin firmness and elasticity, boost collagen production, prevent or reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and lighten dark circles and acne marks—but minus the irritation and purging. Bakuchiol also speeds up cell regeneration and helps soothe and heal the skin with its anti-inflammatory properties, unlike retinol, which may exacerbate these conditions. This is why bakuchiol is a safer alternative, especially for expectant or nursing moms and those with sensitive skin.
Now, if you’re wondering how you can cop one, we have another good news for you!
