CBD for Aging Skin

With age comes wisdom… but also wrinkles! And while wrinkles are natural, healthy, and should be embraced, there are natural and healthy things you can do to minimize the effects of aging on your skin and promote overall wellness.

What are the Common Signs of Aging on Our Skin?

 Wrinkling, thinning, and sunspots are all common and natural effects of aging on your skin.

Sagging, wrinkling, and thinning skin is a result of reduced collagen levels. Collagen is a protein that helps skin cells adhere to each other, giving skin elasticity and strength. As you get older, your body produces less collagen, and this causes our skin to become less elastic and supple-which leads to wrinkles, sagginess, and a more transparent appearance.

Sunspots, also called liver spots,  are another common sign of aging. These are tiny areas of discoloration that appear in areas of the skin that get more sun exposure, such as your face, hands, forearms, and neck. Sunspots are caused by the multiplication of pigmented skin cells, due to the UV radiation from the sun.

While these are all-natural effects of getting older, there are a few things you can do to slow the signs of aging and reduce other health impacts.
