CBD, also known as Cannabidiol, is all the rage nowadays. You hear about it on news stories, blogs, and scientific studies as a substance that has the potential to combat numerous disorders, but what about skin conditions? When applied topically, CBD Hemp oil has shown and continues to show promise in treating a variety of common skin conditions.
While many may cringe at the idea of applying oil to the skin, oil is extremely beneficial. When placed on top of a moisturizer, oil helps prevent hydration from leaving the skin. This is especially useful in dehydrated and dry skin types. Those with oily skin can also take advantage of the benefits of Hemp CBD oil by using it sparingly, and normal skin types can integrate it into their routines with ease.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF TOPICALLY APPLIED CBD OIL?
There are several skin care benefits you can harness by incorporating CBD oil into your skincare routine.
CBD Helps Treat Acne
Acne is a widespread skin condition affecting millions of people every year. It’s diagnosed as mild, moderate, and severe. Those with mild acne often deal with noninflammatory kinds of acne, whiteheads, and blackheads. Inflammatory acne types — pimples or pustules, papules, nodules, and cysts — are more common in moderate and severe acne-prone skin.
While there are many acne treatments available, CBD is a great all-natural option that soothes the inflammation and irritation responsible for acne breakouts. Adding a CBD face cleanser is a great way to integrate CBD into your acne skin care routine. Our cleanser is an ultra-lightweight formula that offers a thorough deep clean. It’s lotion-based, so it doesn’t cause excessive drying, the last thing you want to do with acne-prone skin.
If you’ve already committed to your current cleanser adding CBD Face Toner is another excellent option. Toners remove excess dirt, make-up, and other impurities from the surface of the skin. It’s a must-have to ensure dead skin doesn’t build up and contribute to your breakouts.
Controls Oil Production
CBD oil is a great moisturizer and sealant for just about any skin type. It’s non-comedogenic which means it can moisturize your skin without clogging your pores. It even helps severely dry skin by providing much-needed hydration. Dehydrated skin often overproduces sebum, so while you might think your skin is oily, it might be dehydrated on a deeper level. Even oily skin types can benefit from adding a CBD oil-based moisturizer into their routine as it balances out the skin and helps it regulate oil production.
Sebum is produced by the sebaceous glands and is a vital oil necessary to maintain skin functions such as:
- maintaining elasticity in the skin
- protecting it from toxins and infections
- keeping it hydrated
- waterproofing the skin surface
When an overproduction of sebum occurs, it can then mingle with bacteria and dirt on skins surface and pores become the perfect petri dish for growing bacteria. The body’s immune system then kicks in to combat this “infection of bacteria” by alerting the inflammatory response, in which the outcome is swollen, red pimples or pustules. CBD oil has been shown to help regulate sebum production which makes it a smart choice to help fight acne.
If you’re looking to add a CBD face cream to combat dehydrated, dry, or oily skin or just want to add a natural boost to normal skin try our CBD Face cream.
Battles Inflammation and Soothes Irritation
Acne isn’t the only skin condition that stems from inflammation and irritation. CBD Oil has been shown to have a therapeutic effect on a variety of other skin conditions that are triggered by inflamed and irritated skin. Atopic dermatitis also known as eczema, allergic dermatitis, psoriasis, pruritus, and seborrhea can all benefit from topically applied CBD oil.
CBD oil does more than just soothe and moisturize. It also comes with a host of anti-aging properties that help stop time in its tracks. Free radicals are the culprit behind visible signs of aging. They’re all the nasty things our skin comes in contact with on a daily basis: pollution, chemicals, toxins, etc. By providing the skin with a means to defend itself, you can both stop and reverse the signs of aging.
Naturally occurring essential vitamins and fatty acids make Hemp CBD oil the ideal choice for supplementin your skin care needs. Here are a few of some of the most beneficial vitamins and fatty acids found in CBD skin care products:
Vitamin A: This antioxidant helps protect cells from the damage of free radicals. Vitamin A stimulates the regeneration of cells responsible for producing the tissue that keeps skin firm and elastic.
Vitamin C: Essential Vitamin C helps in the formation of collagen and supports the immune system. Vitamin C stimulates collagen production and gives skin a youthful appearance.
Vitamin E: An important antioxidant, Vitamin E works to block free radicals by preventing oxidation, which in turn helps slow down the aging process, that often leads to loss of suppleness, and the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.
Omega 3 and Omega 6 Fatty Acids: The building blocks of our skin on a cellular level, these fatty acids provide hydration and reduce inflammation. Omega 3 fatty acids are often and easily found in popular over the counter supplements like Flax Seed Oil and Fish Oil
If your skin is starting to lose its youthful glow, try integrating anti-aging skin care products with into your routine. It just may be the answer you are looking for.
