Retinol is one of the active ingredients that is believed to be able to provide a myriad of benefits to the skin. These includes helping the skin regeneration process, tightening, anti aging, fading black spots to acne care. But unfortunately, retinol is also one of the active ingredients in skincare that is quite harsh and has the potential to cause side effects such as dry skin, redness, sensitivity and so on. Another skincare ingredient you can trust with the benefits of retinol but without feeling the side effects is bakuchiol.
Here are 5 bakuchiol serums that you can use:
Dear Me Beauty Single Activator Face Serum 1% Bakuchiol Blueberry Extract
Recently, local brand Dear Me Beauty released a series of serums formulated with various active ingredients, one of which is Bakuchiol girls. The Bakuchiol content comes from natural ingredients, namely the Babchi plant which is rich in antioxidants with anti-aging benefits such as fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin.
This mixture of ingredients also has various other benefits such as disguising dark spots due to hyperpigmentation, softening the skin and improving texture. In addition, there are also Aloe Vera and Blueberry extracts that can prevent acne, soothe irritated skin, and provide maximum moisture.
