The CBD skincare industry is booming, with new brands and products entering the market at an unprecedented rate. Fueling this growth are the many natural benefits CBD has on our skin, the most significant being CBD’s ability to combat acne, dryness, and aging. With these incredible benefits, new CBD products are popping up left and right- from drug store brands to designer skin care lines.
However, if you are interested in reaping these benefits without investing in a whole new collection of skincare products, you’re in luck. You can easily add CBD oil to your favorite sunscreen, face mask, or lotion and harness the same effects. Simply premix your CBD into the entire bottle or jar, or mix it daily in your hands. For smaller areas like your face, a drop or two is all you need. Read on to learn more about how CBD can level up your skin health.
Sunscreen is an integral part of anyone’s daily skincare routine. Sunscreen protects your skin from UV rays, which reduces signs of aging, minimizes the appearance of sunspots, protects from sunburn, and greatly reduces the risk of skin-cancer.
But adding CBD to your sunscreen can even multiply these benefits. While the SPF factor is working to protect skin cells against harmful UV damage, the CBD component is working to ease inflammation, thereby improving overall skin health. CBD can also help ease the side effects of sunscreen, such as acne or irritation. Additionally, although there’s not much research on CBD and its effect on sunburns, the compound is effective in treating inflammation and pain, two side effects of serious sunburns.
It is recommended you cleanse and moisturize your face at least once per week, and face masks are a popular method for deep cleansing. The right face mask can help hydrate skin, remove excess oils and help improve the appearance of pores. They’re also an excellent way to help pull out impurities.
But even better than face masks are CBD face masks. Adding CBD will increase the organic properties of the mask, and provide the inherent benefits of CBD- like reducing acne, dryness and aging. If masks tend to dry out your skin, the CBD will help to preserve moisture while cleansing or use it to deep moisturize
A hydrating and softening moisturizer tends to be the most popular part of any skincare routine- especially if you have dry or combination skin. Using a moisturizer everyday has been shown to improve the appearance of skin and promote faster cell turnover.
Adding a few drops of CBD provides the perfect enhancement to any moisturizer, body and face. CBD moisturizer has been shown to enhance the appearance of skin, by combating dryness, acne, blemishes and aging. Additionally, CBD can help ease muscle and joint pain and alleviate discomforts caused by arthritis.
