This natural retinol alternative is a powerful wrinkle fighter.
By ALEXIS ROCHESTER
One of my favorite things to do as a chemist is research skincare products.
I like to test and find products that actually work to fight aging so my readers don’t have to waste money trying new things.
While I was pregnant, I searched for an ant-aging product to use since I wasn’t able to use any retinols and retinoids.
I discovered bakuchiol and I absolutely love it! I like it even better than retinol.
Bakuchiol is a natural, plant-derived ingredient that combats wrinkles, texture, fine lines and acne. It reverses the effects of aging and protects skin from further damage.
It also leaves skin smooth and youthful without irritation. In addition to combating wrinkles, it is clinically proven to repair sun damage, stimulate skin cell turnover and collagen production.
This powerful ingredient is safe for everyone to use, even pregnant women.
I started using this anti-wrinkle serum (you can use code alexisroch at checkout for a discount) this summer and was blown away by the results.
The best part about bakuchiol-based products is they are safe for everyone and can be used at any age. It does not cause redness and irritation that retinol products do when you first start using them and it is gentle for sensitive skin.
My goal with skincare products is to find things that work so well that you can avoid or limit having to do things like Botox.
This is one of those products! I hope you enjoy trying it out.
