What causes wrinkles?
Lines and creases in our skin are a normal part of the aging process. The loss of moisture and elasticity in our skin represent the prominent causes of wrinkles. Wrinkles typically appear first on the parts of our body which routinely encounter exposure to the sun and other external elements. Genetics, of course, plays a role in how soon we will experience wrinkling, but some other factors which accelerate wrinkles include the following:
- Excessive sun exposure
- Repeated facial expressions
- Indoor and outdoor pollutants
Understand Your Skin Biology
It’s an organ that often gets overlooked and taken for granted. But did you know that the skin is the largest of all our organs and is comprised of multiple layers? It’s a bit more complicated than it appears on the surface. Let’s take a closer look.
- Epidermis: Provides waterproofing and serves as a barrier to infection
- Dermis: Contains hair follicles, sweat glands and sebaceous (oil) glands
- Hypodermis: Part of the skin immune system
It has multiple functions and purposes such as, waterproofing, sensory perception, motor function, transport and absorption of gases and nutrients, endocrine and exocrine functions as well as thermoregulatory and regenerative actions. So, as you can see, the skin is a vital organ.
What is CBD Oil?
Through the process of CO2 extraction or maceration, the oil or serum derived from the hemp plant and all its various parts results in CBD hemp oil. CBD oil contains the cannabinoid referred to as cannabinol or CBD. It does not contain THC the cannabinoid with psychoactive properties resulting in a stoned feeling or euphoric high. So, if you buy CBD hemp products, you should not have a concern with getting high or with the legality of your purchase.
CBD Skin Care Benefits
The marijuana and hemp plant both belong to the cannabis sativa species. For centuries both hemp and marijuana showed medicinal qualities for many different ailments and conditions. Finally, research was conducted in the 1980s to determine why cannabis appeared to target so many diseases. This research lead to the discovery of the Endocannabinoid System or ECS. Made up of a series of endocannabinoids or acidic molecules throughout the body and its systems, balance or homeostasis represents the primary function of the ECS.
The ECS works at the cellular level and stimulates C1 and C2 receptors following the body’s need. However, the ECS sometimes suffers compromise due to variables such as autoimmune diseases, poor diet, alcohol or drug abuse, lack of exercise, and other adverse lifestyle choices. CBD assists the ECS in doing its job efficiently. The hemp plant from which the CBD oil is derived, integrates and communicates well with the skins own ECS as they are similar systems.
So, CBD oil helps to fight wrinkles from the inside and the outside. Whether used orally or applied topically to the skin. CBD oil boasts the following properties:
- As a powerful antioxidant, it reduces free radicals and protects collagen production.
- It acts as a natural moisturizer and regulates oil secretion.
- Its anti-inflammatory properties relax the skin and makes the appearance of wrinkles less noticeable.
Other benefits for anti-aging:
In addition to the cannabinol, CBD oil contains other ingredients which not only promote youthful skin but overall well-being in general. These nourishing ingredients include Omega 6 fatty acids and gamma-linolenic acid. Gamma-linolenic acid’s anti-inflammatory properties are especially potent against wrinkles.
If you struggle with chronically dry, flaky skin, incorporating oils or creams that contain some omega-3 and/or omega-6 fatty acids into your routine could be helpful. Research suggests that there’s potential for skin-care products rich in omega-3 or omega-6 fatty acids to actually improve the look and feel of your skin. Natural CBD skin care products contain naturally occurring fatty acids. It might just be the jump start you are looking for.
Other ways in which CBD oil may decrease wrinkles and promote a more youthful appearance include:
- Easing pain cuts down on wrinkle creating facial expressions.
- Managing stress reduces the production of cortisol. Cortisol contributes to acne, eczema and other skin conditions.
- Assisting with good quality sleep helps with overall good health.
Of course, nothing replaces the wisdom of living a healthy lifestyle, but knowing you can buy CBD skin care products online gives you a way to fight wrinkles and other signs of aging and promote overall well-being.
