Stubborn Lines and Wrinkles: Your Guide to Skin Renewal Using Bakuchiol Retinol Alternative Refining Serum

Stubborn lines and wrinkles form from years of enjoying life. From smiling to laughing and squinting to whistling stubborn lines and wrinkles are created over time as proteins in our skin begin to break down. Two of our skin’s stabilizing proteins are collagen and elastin. While collagen creates the structure of your body’s connective tissue, elastin works like a rubber band to help the skin stretch and return to its original form. While retinol has been all the rage in skin care, it comes with some pretty ugly side effects and can’t be used by everyone. If you’re looking for a natural retinol alternative that achieves similar results, L’BRI’s Aloe-First Bakuchiol Retinol Alternative Refining Serum is for you!

What are the two categories of wrinkles?

Dynamic wrinkles

Repeated facial expressions such as smiling, raising your eyebrows, frowning, or squinting can create these facial lines over time.

Static wrinkles

These stubborn lines and wrinkles are visible even when the face is at rest. They are part of the natural aging process and are typically deeper and more pronounced than dynamic wrinkles.

Over time, dynamic wrinkles become static wrinkles. Bakuchiol Retinol Alternative Refining Serum is formulated to help smooth stubborn static lines and wrinkles.

What are the types of wrinkles?

Forehead wrinkles

Horizontal lines that stretch across the forehead.

Worry lines

Cause one or two lines between the eyebrows.

Bunny wrinkles

These lines run across the bridge of the nose horizontally between your eyes

Crow’s feet

Start at the corners of your eyes and radiate out toward the hairline.

Laugh lines

These appear beneath your cheeks and run from your nose to the sides of your mouth.

Lip lines

Vertical Lines that surround the perimeter of the mouth.

Marionette lines

Marionette lines start at the corners of the mouth and extend down to the jaw.

What causes wrinkles?


As time goes by our skin cells divide more slowly. The proteins in your skin start to break down. This includes collagen, which supports its outer structure, and elastin, which makes it stretchy.

Repeated facial expressions

Your face is a map of emotions. The lines and wrinkles you see when your face is at rest can reveal how often you smile, scowl, or raise your eyebrows. Small lines become wrinkles. Wrinkles turn into stubborn lines and wrinkles.

UV rays

Too much sun exposure causes all kinds of havoc on your skin. These UV rays accelerate the breakdown of collagen and elastin. The skin also tries to protect itself from these harmful rays by producing excess melanin. Melanin is what helps your skin get tan, but with repeated sun exposure it can cause uneven skin tone and age spots.   


Nothing ages your skin faster than smoking. Like UV rays, it accelerates the breakdown of collagen and elastin in your skin. It also narrows blood vessels, which lessens the flow of oxygen and other essentials. Smokers also perform repeated facial expressions often such as squinting of the eyes and pursing of the lips. It can also dull and discolor the skin.

What causes advanced sun damage?

Advanced sun damage, also called photoaging, is caused by a life of daily UV exposure from the sun. It can result in the loss of skin plumpness and elasticity, lines, wrinkles, and pigment changes including uneven skin tone and sunspots. Hyperpigmentation is the most common cause of uneven skin tone and texture, which is due to excess melanin production in the skin. The skin produces excess melanin to protect itself from harmful UV rays.
