Thanks to a wealth of media coverage, the benefits of CBD oil for inflammation are now quite well known.
Some people believe that CBD supplements and lotions should play a major role in your skincare routine. And with good reason.
Topical CBD, in particular, can give you the natural benefits of hemp without any of the psychoactive effects of marijuana’s other component, THC.
Here’s how CBD (also known as cannabidiol) could help keep skin healthy:
1. An extra source of vitamins
It can be hard to consume foods rich in all the nutrients our bodies need to be healthy.
By adding CBD-infused products to your skincare regime, you know that your skin is getting all the vitamin C and E it needs to help protect it from sun damage and stay firm and tight for longer.
Cannabidiol is also rich in vitamins A and D, which can help fix dry, flaky skin.
2. Beat the breakouts
Regularly applying CBD oil to your skin provides it with healthy fatty acids, which are often found to be lacking in people with acne.
Plus, cannabidiol has antibacterial properties which can help treat infection – a major contributor to acne.
But that’s not all! Fatty acids also protect and strengthen your skin’s outer layer and could help you have fresher, younger looking skin.
Hydration, hydration, hydration is the dermatologist’s mantra.
Thanks to its high levels of omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, cannabinoid oil could be nature’s most effective moisturiser.
4. Fool your skin about your age
Imagine if you could trick your cells into thinking they were 10 years younger? Well, now you possibly can!
Cannabinoid receptors in the brain interact with CBD to increase our body’s natural ability to grow new skin cells.
What does this all mean? CBD could boost your body’s regenerative process and help your skin look younger
