Let’s face it, skincare is important, and most of us rarely take as good of care of our skin as we should. We also don’t often spend the exorbitant amount of monies many companies charge for the ‘next best skin regiment’. There’s just too many to keep up with and not enough information for most.
Enter the little molecule that ‘maybe’ can: CBD.
What does CBD actually do for your skin?
CBD contains antioxidants (1), which makes CBD is potentially promising skincare solution to ongoing problems like eczema and psoriasis. The antioxidant properties also fight to neutralize free radicals in the body. CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties reduce redness and irritation from acne, weather, allergies or just sensitive skin. CBD also has anti-aging properties that help to smooth wrinkles and support a more youthful appearance and skin.
The great thing about skincare with CBD is there are several ways to apply to your skin, including vaporizer oils and tinctures that are placed directly under the tongue. However, the most popular and seemingly obvious method is a cream or ointment.
Full spectrum CBD is packed full of vitamins like Vitamin A and D, which are responsible for repairing skin. Vitamin A is important for skin cell growth and regeneration and oil inhibition. Vitamin A and D help keep your skin from being dry and flaky.
Full spectrum CBD has Vitamins C and E as well, which function as antioxidants and protect your skin from the sun, wind and other environmental damage. Protecting your skin helps keep your skin looking young and vibrant and resists the free radicals that slowly destroy it.
Full spectrum CBD has B-Complex vitamins, which are responsible for skin reconstruction and protect skin from conditions like dermatitis.
With CBD, you also get Omega-3 and Omega-6. These are fatty acids and work to regenerate the protective layer of your skin, creating a smoother and more youthful appearance. If you are lacking Omega fatty acids in your diet, then you may suffer from frequent acne, breakouts or dry skin.
In addition to the vitamins, there are many direct, skin-related benefits of using topical CBD, including:
Adult acne is extremely common. Acne has many underlying causes, but is often worsened by stress, medication, diet, poor skincare habits and hormones. When our skin reacts to these types of things, it can overproduce the natural oil secreted from our skin (Sebum from the Sebaceous glands) and cause breakouts. CBD helps to regulate the production of sebum through our own endocannabinoid receptors, which are prevalent in our skin.
Eczema is thought to be an allergic reaction beneath the skin. Because the rash is inflammatory, many have used CBD oils, or creams, which have excellent anti-inflammation properties, to gain potential relief. While it may not completely halt a rash caused by eczema, it may help significantly.
Skin Allergy Treatment
In the same way CBD can treat eczema, it may treat other skin allergies caused by proliferation and differentiation.
While there is still so much we don’t know about CBD, new studies are being done every day. With all of your options, and lotions and creams to put on your skin, why wouldn’t you try something all natural that may do what even the most expensive skincare products can’t do?
