From wearing masks to dealing with the winter elements, it’s safe to say our skin has dealt with a lot over the last few months (or years) and is looking for relief. With so many facial products on the market, it’s tricky to find the perfect products for our skincare regime that provide relief while not hurting our wallets. Luckily, we have the answer for you. CBD and its relieving properties have been shown to help soothe the skin to help you look and feel your best.
CBD has been shown to provide relief to the following skin conditions:
Acne: CBD oil may help reduce various types of acne thanks to its ability to adjust how the body creates sebum
- Eczema: CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties help reduce potential triggers of eczema and psoriasis by helping to balance the immune system- which often triggers these conditions.
- Sensitive skin: CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties and antioxidants help soothe sensitive skin and reduce the appearance of general irritation.
- Aging and Wrinkles: CBD has an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effect, which can promote overall skin health and reduce age lines and other signs of aging.
To use CBD on the skin, simply mix CBD oil with a carrier oil and apply it directly. It is important to start by using a carrier oil that works with the person’s skin. Carrier oils include:
- olive oil
- shea butter
- argan oil
Taking oral CBD may also help with acne in some cases, as the anti-inflammatory compounds are still active when they enter the body, but using it topically is recommended.
