Itâ€™s rich in protective phytonutrients, itâ€™s jam-packed with antioxidants and it delivers powerful antibacterial properties. Prominent lifestyle bloggers are raving about it, and A-list celebs canâ€™t get enough.
Itâ€™s little wonder CBD skin care has emerged as the breakout beauty trend of 2019.
So why should you be excited about adding CBD-infused beauty products to your skin care routine?
Weâ€™re glad you askedâ€¦
Hemp has been a present and popular ingredient in beauty products for quite some time, but the presence of hemp doesnâ€™t always mean the powerful cannabinoid CBD is in there too.
If you see hemp oil on the list of ingredients, which is oil derived from the stalk, stems and flowers of the hemp plant, you can be confident that the product is infused with CBD. If you see hemp seed oil, which is oil derived from the seeds of the hemp plant, it wonâ€™t contain any CBD.
Now, thatâ€™s not to say that there arenâ€™t any skin care benefits to using hemp seed oil. Itâ€™s rich in Omega-3, 6 and 9, all of which are essential oils for healthy skin. But weâ€™re interested in the topical application of CBD and the benefits it delivers via the bodyâ€™s largest organ, the skin.
CBD interacts with your bodyâ€™s cannabinoid system, providing targeted relief from problematic skin conditions, such as dryness, sensitivity, acne and more. Itâ€™s high in antioxidants, which helps keep your skin looking youthful, and itâ€™s rich in phytonutrients, cannabinoids and terpenes, which nourish, heal and protect your skin. Letâ€™s break those benefits down further.
CBD boasts tremendous healing properties, bringing relief to inflamed, irritated skin. If you suffer from an inflammatory skin condition, such as psoriasis, eczema or acne, itâ€™s a great option to soothe itchy and painful skin. This is because CBD is an anti-inflammatory, which helps to reduce redness and calm sensitivities. Itâ€™s also anti-bacterial, which helps to repair skin by keeping it free from harmful bacteria.
You should, however, be careful not to apply CBD skin care products to unknown rashes or open wounds. Make sure you have a doctor check you over before trying a new skin care regimen.
Whether your skin is naturally dry, or you find that it dries out when itâ€™s cold outside or when youâ€™re in an air-conditioned room, itâ€™s vital that you replenish the moisture in your skin. CBD oil for skin is a great option, thanks to its long-lasting and rich, moisturizing effects. It helps to protect your skin, keep it hydrated and leave you with a healthy glow.
Your skin naturally secretes an oily substance called sebum. In appropriate amounts, it helps to protect your skin. But if your body produces too much, it can lead to breakouts, acne or a shiny complexion. Applied topically, CBD can help to balance oily skin by increasing your bodyâ€™s cannabinoid levels, which, in turn, reduces the amount of sebum produced (1).
Normal. Sensitive. Dry. Combination. CBD oil for skin doesnâ€™t discriminate! Containing a synergistic blend of phytonutrients, cannabinoids and terpenes, hemp oil gets to work intelligently balancing, restoring and protecting your skin. As an active skin care ingredient, CBD responds to your unique skin type and condition.
The best CBD products can also help rejuvenate your skin (2). Wrinkles appear smoothed and tired skin is plumped, leaving you looking fresh, youthful and vibrant. This is because of CBDâ€™s incredible antioxidant properties.
Antioxidants help to minimize the damage caused by free radicals, the natural byproducts of chemical processes. Free radicals can be found in the air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat â€” and are particularly prominent in alcohol, tobacco smoke, fried foods and air pollutants. CBD helps to slow visible signs of aging by protecting and restoring your skin.
When it comes to CBD beauty products, thereâ€™s a veritable whoâ€™s who of champions.
For starters, everyoneâ€™s favorite Friend (no, not Chandler), Jennifer Aniston, swears by CBD oil (3).
Star of â€śThe O.Câ€ť and â€śVinyl,â€ť Olivia Wilde, is a huge fan of CBD lotion (4).
And â€śWhat Not to Wearâ€ť scene stealer, Stacy London, took to Instagram (5) to give props to CBDâ€™s skin care benefits.
Theyâ€™re joined by the likes of Kristen Bell (6), Mandy Moore (7), and Dakota Johnson (8) as vocal admirers of CBD. So, if youâ€™re ready to join the A-list of skin care routines, then, boy, do we have a treat in store for you!
