Cannabidiol is found in your gummies, coffee, candles and post-workout recovery drinks. CBD is a powerful ally for your skin and CBD-based products have become popular in the skincare marketplace. Since January is National CBD Month, let’s explore the ways that CBD can benefit your skin as well as products that can level up your skincare routine.
What is CBD? Cannabidiol occurs in the cannabis plant and is one of over 100 known cannabinoids, which affect the body by playing a part in our endocannabinoid system. The main two primary active ones are CBD and THC. Unlike THC or tetrahydrocannabinol which produces a euphoric feeling, CBD is non-psychoactive so it will never make you feel high and is also not habit-forming. The wellness benefits of CBD are plentiful, including relieving the effects of stress, depression, anxiety, pain, insomnia and even symptoms of epilepsy. How can CBD help your skin?
*CBD has healing properties. A potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant, CBD reduces inflammation, swelling and redness in skin prone to breakouts. CBD can provide relief from skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema.
*CBD helps clear acne by regulating oil production. Since an excess of sebum can make acne worse, CBD’s anti-inflammatory impact on the skin cells that produce sebum has been a positive one in the fight against breakouts.
*CBD hydrates dry skin that itches and cracks. During the winter months, the natural oils from our skin can be depleted but not replenished, resulting in red, scaly and irritated skin. CBD restores the moisture that can make skin feel tight and itchy since it has anti-inflammatory properties.
*CBD lessens the effect of aging on our skin, by fighting free radical damage, diminishing the appearance of wrinkles and reducing hyperpigmentation or age spots. CBD impacts our endocannabinoid system including melanocyte or pigmentation production.
