Beauty: Is CBD The Answer?

CBD is often touted in skincare products for the treatment of everything from acne to dark circles and wrinkles. That’s because CBD/hemp oil is perfect for many skin types since it helps moisturize your skin without clogging the pores. There are many studies touting CBD for skincare products helping with hydrating and balancing oily skin. Here are some of the alleged ways skincare products boasting CBD may be useful in giving tired skin a boost. 

Dryness 

CBD skincare products are widely used to help reduce dryness doing this by moisturizing your skin without bothering with clogged pores. Applying a CBD-infused moisturizer is crucial, especially if you have dry, flaky skin, or have skin that’s prone to infections. On the other hand, oily skin may also lead to acne. There are many skincare products available that can deal with either skin condition, but few can deal with both skin types. 

CBD skincare products come from hemp seed extract and can be extremely beneficial for dealing with both dry and oily skin without clogging the pores. Sounds like a win-win, no?

Inflammation

CBD/hemp oil is already being widely used as the treatment of inflammation, but, it’s also beneficial for inflammation on the skin as well. This is why the topical use of CBD is on the rise with millions of people using CBD skincare products to reduce symptoms such as itchiness and redness, sure-fire signs of inflammation.

While inflammation is a natural response of the body, it can become a large problem if you develop chronic inflammation of the skin, such as psoriasis, eczema, or acne. The regular use of CBD/hemp oil has been proven in myriad studies to be effective in reducing various types of skin inflammation, leaving you with youthful-looking and beautiful skin. 

Aging

CBD/hemp oil that’s used in skincare products also contains Vitamin F, which really means it contains fatty acids or linoleic acid. This is an essential fatty acid that our bodies cannot produce and needs to come from an external source. The main benefit of linoleic acid is that it helps protect the barrier of the outermost layer of our skin. It has been found that linoleic acid, along with hemp seed oil, keeps the skin supple and healthy for longer. 

Oxygenation

CBD skincare products also contain Vitamin E, which is essential in helping improve the dilation of blood vessels. This important vitamin is also associated with increasing the production of red blood cells, which helps carry oxygen through different parts of the body. 

There have been many studies carried out on CBD-infused skincare products, all of which have proven to be extremely beneficial for treating tired-looking skin, without significant side effects.
