What's the Deal with CBD and Sunscreen?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is the anti-inflammatory, antioxidant compound found in Cannabis that has rightfully taken the health and wellness industry by storm over the last few years. Yahoo reports that the CBD skin-care industry is expected to reach a market-value of $24.91 billion by 2024. Now it’s being hailed as one of the safest ways to protect your skin from the sun.
Treating yourself to a little sunshine is one of the best things you can do for your body. Everyday Health Perspective reports that sun exposure boosts your levels of Vitamin D, helps regulate sleep, and much more. However, it’s no secret that too much sun exposure carries some serious risks.
Spending too much time out in the sun without proper protection from the ultraviolet (UV) rays can damage and even kill your skin cells, which increase the risk of developing skin cancer, Family Doctor reports. Too much sun can also cause redness, itchiness, peeling, blisters, and dehydration. Although everyone’s skin is a little different, research published by the Institute for Quality and Efficiency in Health Care found that as little as five minutes of UV exposure can be harmful to those who have particularly light skin.
The Dangers of Traditional Sunscreen
The ingredients found in traditional sunscreen is always derived from either chemicals, minerals, or a combination of both. The Environmental Wellness Group (EWG) reports that some of these chemicals may mimic hormones in our body, while many physicians have treated cases of sunscreen-related allergies.
What’s even more troubling is the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not measured the safety of sunscreen since the industry standards were set in place during the 1970s. The Danish Environmental Protection Agency investigated the issue and found that many of these ingredients lack sufficient information to conclude whether or not they were safe.
CBD and Sunscreen
CBD and Your Skin
Hemp-derived CBD effectively reduces signs of aging, dark spots, and peeling, in addition to treating acne and even eczema. According to research published by Future Medicinal Chemistry, this is all thanks to CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties. CBD is also very gentle and doubles as the perfect moisturizer.
CBD and Sun Protection
According to research published by Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research, CBD has antioxidant properties. Evidence shows that these properties may be even more effective than Vitamins E and C at protecting your skin from sun damage and keeping your skin youthful.
CBD also contains amino and fatty acids, according to Chemistry & Biodiversity, which are at the foundation of proper skin protection.
Additionally, CBD can treat sunburn by reducing pain, inflammation, dryness, and peeling.
