Bakuchiol is a plant-based antioxidant that offers a multitude of skincare uses. Bakuchiol skincare products can help to fight the first signs of ageing, soothe reactive skin and help to reduce any discolouration. Plus, skincare with bakuchiol can also benefit acne-prone skin types, due to its calming effects.
Bakuchiol is sometimes dubbed “nature’s retinol”, but when cocktailed with actual retinol it works even harder to tackle visible skin concerns like wrinkles, dark spots and loss of firmness. Bakuchiol products that also feature retinol can be especially helpful for those with more sensitive skin types, who may experience skin issues such as sensitivity or flaking when using retinol. With these products, it’s best to start slowly and build up usage when you know your skin can tolerate it well.
Paula’s Choice Skincare features a range of bakuchiol products, so you can choose how to add it to your skincare routine. A top tip is to always apply lighter formulations that feature bakuchiol before a heavier, thicker product. For example, a lightweight bakuchiol serum should be applied before a creamy moisturiser, but a creamy bakuchiol moisturiser should be applied before a dense sunscreen.
If you’re already happy with your skincare routine, you could simply try adding a bakuchiol booster to your current moisturiser, to supercharge the benefits.
For the most impressive results, particularly on ageing or sun-damaged skin, look for products that contain a dream team of retinol, bakuchiol and peptides, as these will target fine lines, deep wrinkles and loss of firmness that can affect collagen-depleted skin.
