In this edition of the ingredient spotlight, we’re discussing one of the newest K-beauty trending ingredients: Bakuchiol.
You probably have seen or heard this ingredient being talked about on your TikTok For You Page, as it has become a popular ingredient to use in retinol, touted as a powerful alternative to traditional retinol. So why not give it a try and see the benefits of nature for yourself? Here is all you need to know about Bakuchiol!
What is Bakuchiol?
Bakuchiol (Pronounced bah-coo-chee-all) is a natural plant-based ingredient, derived from the leaves and seeds of the Psoralea Corylifolia plant, that has been used for centuries, dating back to Chinese medicine. It has been found to have potent antioxidant properties that help reduce skin discoloration caused by environmental exposure. Bakuchiol has also been found to have unique benefits for all skin types. Its gentle and non-irritating qualities make it a great alternative to harsher skincare ingredients such as retinol or salicylic acid. So, whether you have combination, oily, or dry skin, incorporating Bakuchiol into your routine can improve your skin’s health and appearance!
Benefits of Using Bakuchiol:
As mentioned before, this plant-based ingredient has become popular throughout the years due to its benefits. Here are some benefits of incorporating this into your skincare routine!
- It’s a powerful antioxidant that can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, a popular quality of anti-aging skincare products.
- Enhances skin firmness, and evens out the skin tone and its texture.
- For sensitive skin, its soothing effect can help reduce redness and inflammation.
- For acne-prone skin, it helps regulate sebum production and reduce the appearance of blemishes.
How and when do you use Bakuchiol?
It can be used during the day and night. You can use Bakuchiol as an essence or serum once or twice daily (depending on how well your skin tolerates it) after cleansing, toner, and moisturizer. But don’t forget to use sunscreen during your AM routine!
