Skin Cycling

Skin cycling is a 4-day routine that incorporates active ingredients into recovery days. The morning skin products are the same, and the night routine varies on days 1 to 4.

The benefits of retinol are undeniable, but if it causes irritation. Because of this, more people are turning to natural retinol alternatives to reap the benefits without the irritation.

What is the best natural alternative to retinol?

Rosehip oil, sometimes known as Rosa Canina oil, is derived from the pressed seeds and fruit of the rose plant. The ingredient is naturally rich in antioxidants, helping to support healthy skin. A common active ingredient in skincare, rosehip oil works to reduce hyperpigmentation and scarring of the skin, as well as soothe irritation and inflammation.

Our exclusive Natural Retinol Alternative Oil Serum – the ultimate solution for radiant, rejuvenated skin. The product will be perfect addition to any BIJAN365 skincare product or to be incorporated in skincare procedures like the Skin-Cycling. 

All BIJAN365 products are natural and organic certified. The natural environment in the Baltic region is unique because the northern summers are much shorter, leaving flowers with a much shorter time to attract bees for pollination. Plants are compelled to concentrate their blossoming vigour in this short blossoming time. As a result, at the time of harvest they are rich with the active ingredients required to survive in bitter climates.
