Let’s face it: the CBD craze only gets bigger and better. No matter where you turn, there are CBD products everywhere. From a new medication that was just approved to treat pediatric epilepsy to the CBD shot, you can get in your Monday morning latte; the options are endless.
CBD and your Skincare
CBD advocates claim a pretty wide range of benefits, from improving your beauty sleep to assisting with joint pain, calming inflammation, or even nulling nausea from your daily routine! But the internal benefits are just the beginning. How could CBD change your health and beauty efforts? No matter who you are, you’ve probably tried all sorts of treatments surrounding skincare. Whether you’re looking to fight aging (let’s all look like we’re 25 forever!) or trying to recover from your high school days of picking at your skin, we all have qualms about our skin and things we wish could be different.
CBD isn’t just revolutionizing the natural supplement world but can be found in all sorts of skincare products and regimens. You can get a CBD massage, buy no less than a million different creams, salves, serum, and balms, get a CBD mascara, take a CBD bath with a fizzy bomb or two, and even sip a CBD tea while we’re at it. There is a product for all skin types, sensitive skin, and oily skin. As we said, the CBD beauty options are endless.
How should I integrate CBD into my routine?
We recommend mixing our CBD tincture into your favorite lotion or creme and using it topically. (Nerd moment alert: when you take CBD orally, with CBD gummies, or take our tincture sublingually, which means under your tongue, it goes straight to the receptors of your Endocannabinoid system. But when you use it topically, you’ll only feel the effect where you applied it. How cool is that?)
Let’s do a quick recap on what CBD is and how it works, and then get into what kind of benefit it can bring to your skincare routine.
What is CBD again?
CBD is a chemical compound extracted from the cannabis plant. CBD is short for cannabidiol, and it is a non-psychoactive ingredient, which means it can’t get you high. You may be familiar with CBD because it is often compared with its cousin, THC. THC stands for Tetrahydrocannabinol, which is a psychoactive ingredient harvested from the cannabis plant. It is the active ingredient in marijuana, aka weed, and it can get you high. They are almost identical in chemical structure but are completely different in how they impact your body. THC gets you high, whereas CBD helps relax and regulate your endocannabinoid system.
Does the kind of CBD I get matter?
Because there are so many different products and producers of CBD oil, the quality can vary greatly. Our CBD Oil Tincture is made with Full Spectrum CBD, which means it offers a wide range of benefits, but contains 0% THC. Some products can contain up to 0.3% of THC, but not ours. Checking the ingredients of any product is key to understanding how it works and what impact it could have on your body.
How does CBD make a difference with my skin?
One of the best qualities of CBD oil (and believe us, it has a ton of great qualities) is its anti-inflammatory properties. This will help not only with inflammation that causes joint pain, but it will also help calm down inflammation in the skin, you know, like redness and swelling that sticks around and exacerbates acne. CBD also helps regulate several different systems in your body, one of which is the system that produces oil in your skin. Acne appears when bacteria gathers on your skin, and your skin produces too much (or not enough) oil — this is when your skin breaks out.
What is in your CBD Oil Tincture?
Our CBD Oil Tincture is made of Full Spectrum CBD Oil and includes other healthy things like Vitamin B12 and Vitamin B3, and Coconut Oil — all of which have been hailed as excellent skin care products on their own. Put them together, and you have a masterful blend of skincare experts.
How could CBD Oil Tinctures improve my skincare?
You can use CBD Tinctures in your skincare routine to help smooth dry skin, tackle inflammation, or as just a refresher throughout your day. CBD can be energizing and help you remain alert throughout the day, while also relaxing and regulating your inner systems.
The anti-inflammatory part of CBD, as we mentioned, can calm redness and diminish the presence of acne. The antioxidant part of CBD can be helpful for anti-aging and wrinkles. These same properties can help your skin seem brighter and less dull and can even out your skin tone overall.
As we mentioned, our CBD Oil Tincture contains Vitamin B12 and Vitamin D3. B Vitamins are hailed and regaled in the skincare world for their skin reconstruction properties. In fact, they can even help ward off dermatitis. D Vitamins, on the other hand, help with skin cell growth, regulate oil production and help treat dry and flaky skin. Coconut oil is another very versatile element to integrate into your daily routine and has a wide range of benefits involved.
CBD Oil Tinctures can be a great, healthy way to integrate more natural supplements into your skincare routine and give your skin a bright, healthy glow with a CBD serum. But as always, we encourage you to consult with your doctor or a medical professional before integrating any kind of supplement into your daily skincare routine. While CBD is an excellent resource, research is still being conducted on how it may impact your body in the long term. So, whether you’re seeking relief from chronic pain, looking to sleep better, or to ward off wrinkles, talk with your doctor before adding skin-care products into your lifestyle. Especially if you’ve been diagnosed with other medical conditions, such as eczema, inflammation, sensitive skin, acne or are using a prescribed medication, or a medicated skincare treatment, a doctor should be able to determine what kind of CBD product could be right for you.
