What skin type is bakuchiol good for?
Retinol, on the other hand, can be more irritating to the skin and is typically not recommended for those with sensitive skin. For this reason, some people may prefer to use bakuchiol as an alternative to retinol.
When should I apply bakuchiol?
Bakuchiol can be applied as part of your nighttime skincare routine, after cleansing and toning your skin. It’s typically recommended to use it after your toner, but before your moisturizer.
Here’s a simple nighttime skincare routine that incorporates bakuchiol:
- Cleanse your face: Use a gentle cleanser to remove dirt, oil, and makeup from your skin.
- Tone your skin: Apply a toner to help balance your skin’s pH and prep it for the next step.
- Apply bakuchiol: Use a pea-sized amount of bakuchiol and spread it evenly over your face and neck.
- Moisturize your skin: Follow up with a moisturizer to help seal in the hydration and prevent dryness.
- Use an eye cream: Apply a small amount of eye cream to the delicate skin around your eyes.
