In the past many skincare products were loaded with harmful chemicals. As our awareness of these toxins becomes more available, more powerful natural ingredients for healthy skin are discovered. CBD for dermatological use shows a lot of promise for improving skin health and treating various skin conditions. CBD (or cannabidiol) has a wide range of beneficial properties (pain relief, antioxidant, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and anti-anxiety) that not only benefit humans internally, but also externally. Many of these benefits translate to the skin and can be applied through various CBD lotions, serums, body oils, scrubs, and more! CBD interacts with a network in the body known as the endocannabinoid system through specialized receptors. CBD stimulates these receptors (CB1 and CB2) to help the body more efficiently regulate hormones, cutaneous cell growth and differentiation, immune system, mood, pain perception, and sleep. These receptors exist in almost all skin cells.
CBD is especially helpful to people who struggle with inflammatory skin conditions, skin sensitivity, headaches, skin dryness, and acne. CBD oil is a powerful skin softener and moisturizer that doesn’t clog pores or contribute to oily skin. While some acne treatments can end up irritating skin more than before, CBD calms and soothes the skin and reduces redness and helps prevent breakouts. CBD also shows a potential to regulate oil production by empowering the endocannabinoid systems regulatory ability. Taken internally, CBD can also reduce anxiety which my help prevent stress-related breakouts. Because of the localized way topical application of CBD stimulates these receptors these infused products can be used for many purposes. Try our Rose CBD Mask and Mint Honey Walnut CBD Scrub to exfoliate and renew your skin.
Those with skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema may find relief with CBD. CBD does not reach the bloodstream when applied topically, but it does stimulate the CB2 receptors and TRPV-1 receptors (regulating the sensations of pain, heat, itching, and inflammation.) CBD may also inhibit certain triggers of these disorders. Because of its powerful anti-inflammatory properties, CBD can help support the skin’s natural healing process, shortening the lifespan of breakouts and eczema/psoriasis flare-ups. Inflammation is the core factor behind many skin issues, from acne to rosacea. The natural Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, linoleic acid, and antioxidants in CBD oil make it effective for dry skin and eczema. The anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties from CBD can reduce puffiness, swelling, and even soreness. Try our Antioxidant Cream and the Rooibos Eye Serum to keep skin healthy and looking great!
CBD can help lighten dark circles around the eyes, also target sunspots, sunburn, rashes, dryness and anti-aging. CBD is an antioxidant which helps heal free-radical damage. Free-radicals cause cells to break down faster causing the appearance of aging and wrinkles. CBD can help rejuvenate the cells in the skin and reduce inflammation to fight these signs of aging. To moisturize and nurish your skin, our Blue-Green algae body butter is your best bet!
