Retinol Vs Bakuchiol
You just found out that you are pregnant and you are so excited to welcome a baby into your life. Big changes are happening in your body, a growing belly and hormonal shifts. Despite the morning sickness everything is great, but you have noticed that your skin seems more dry, dull, red, uneven, and you are experiencing hormonal breakouts.
Looking for a solution, you start to google remedies for your skin concerns. You come across products containing Retinol, which promise to take care of all of them. After further research, you find out that Retinol will actually cause more harm than good. It can be very irritating to the skin, cause redness, burning, and peeling. It is also a synthetic form of Vitamin A created in a lab. To top it off, it isn’t safe to use while pregnant or breastfeeding. It can actually cause Birth Defects if used while pregnant! Okay, now Retinol is no longer an option.
So what now? If the ingredient that everyone is raving about is actually bad for your skin…What do you do to find relief?
Does this narrative sound familiar to you? Maybe you stumbled across this blog because you are in that googling process. The truth is, it isn’t easy to find skincare safe for pregnancy. But you're lucky that you found us, because we have the answer and solution for you…keep reading.
Have you ever heard of Bakuchiol? If not, let me introduce you. Bakuchiol is an amazing natural ingredient made from the flower Psoralea Corylifolia. It naturally stimulates the renewal of skin cells to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, acne, and hyperpigmentation. Although it can cause some slight stinging, it is generally safe for sensitive skin. And you probably guessed it, but there are no known pregnancy risks related to the use of Bakuchiol!
Within 8 weeks of consistent use, you will start to notice a difference in your skin! Don’t quite believe us? Check this out…
It was found in a study in 2018 that “bakuchiol and retinol both significantly decreased wrinkle surface area and hyperpigmentation, with no statistical difference between the compounds.” https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/29947134/
