From mascaras to bath bombs, thereâ€™s no doubt that CBD is the hottest new trend to sweep the beauty and wellness world.Â
To be honest, itâ€™s little wonder â€“ apparently the superstar ingredient has the power to boost the complexion, soothe skin, and help protect from ageing all at the same time.Â
But is this surprising ingredient really the secret to flawless skin? And how does it even work?
Holland & Barrettâ€™s new Day Cream and Night Cream are bursting with CBD antioxidants, working to protect skin at all times
Well, according to recent research, cannabis oil is far from a fleeting fad. In fact, it could be even more effective than originally thought, with results showing its ability toÂ help regulate the skinâ€™s oil productionÂ as well as all the other skin-boosting benefits.
But while the idea of applying CBD serumÂ all over our face may seem like a bizarre one, itâ€™s not cannabis as we know it. CBD is a non-psychoactive component of the original plant, known as a cannabinoid (so, it wonâ€™t make you high).Â
CBD or cannabidiol is the most popular cannabinoid, due to its skin-loving and complexion-transforming abilities.

Itâ€™s all down to CBDâ€™s array of topical benefits and part of what makes CBD such a super skincare ingredient is its naturally high levels of antioxidants.Â
These antioxidants are able to help reduce free-radicals andÂ the damage caused to skin cells from environmental aggressors like UV rays, pollution and stress â€“ things we all experience on a daily basis.Â
Holland & Barrett Muscle Balm and Muscle Balm Extra has honed in on CBDâ€™s abilities to help relieve painful and tired muscles
Holland & Barrettâ€™s new Day Cream and Night Cream are bursting with CBD antioxidants, working to help protect skin at all times to provide a newfound radiance and restored youthfulness.Â
The Night Cream also contains Shea Butter for extra nourishment and moisture, as well as to boost the skinâ€™s natural collagen production for a plump and hydrated complexion upon waking.
Thatâ€™s not the only benefit that CBD has to offer, though. According to the latest scientific research (Tamas and Balazs, Trends Pharmacological Science, 2009), itâ€™s also able to boost skin health due to the bodyâ€™s natural ability to recognize it as an ingredient.Â Â
One of the newfound and most exciting uses for CBD is to help reduce the prevalence of acne-causing bacteria on the skin and reduce the appearance of redness associated with breakouts
Holland & Barrett Muscle Balm and Muscle Balm Extra has honed in on CBDâ€™s abilities to help relieve painful and tired muscles and help melting away tension. To help the formula soak into the skin, it has been cleverly formulated with Capsicum pepper extract, helping to create a slight warming effect on the skin surface in order to boost circulation.
But one of the newfound and most exciting uses for CBD is for the treatment of problem skin, that can cause distress to millions of teens and adults alike â€“ and for which there are surprisingly few effective topical treatments. When applied to the skin, CBD regulates the production of oil within the skin, helping to ward off breakouts as well as helping to prevent future blemishes from forming.Â
Holland & Barrrett Serum is a super concentrated elixir concentrated with a light texture to give your skin a moisture boost. The CBD and Hemp seed oils work together to help regulate the skinâ€™s oil production giving you the correct balance for your skin type. This serum is suitable for use on problem skin.
