CBD for Skincare & Bath
Whether its chocolates, cocktails, candles or clothing, CBD is everywhere and in everything you can possibly think of. And now the buzzy ingredient is taking over the world of beauty and skincare. From serums and sunscreen to chapsticks, creams and cleansers, there is an array of hemp-infused products popping up in beauty supply stores everywhere. Known for its healing properties, CBD offers some serious antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits which can be beneficial in treating skin concerns like inflammation, dryness and free radical damage. CBD is also effective in fighting acne as it helps reduce the production of sebum in the skin. Additionally, studies indicate that cannabidiol may be effective in treating eczema and psoriasis as well.
There is a great potential of utilization of CBD oil in skin care. As a matter of fact, the topical use of CBD can decrease skin inflammation and skin discomfort, as well as reactions such as pruritus, a form of severe skin itching affecting aged skin, thus offering a possible new approach for anti-aging products. The sebostatic effect of CBD could make it the molecule of choice when trying to optimize anti-acne treatments. And the suggested pro-pigmenting effects might be of interest for consumers who want to protect their skin with sunscreens against ultraviolet radiation. When applied topically, you won't get any effect on anxiety, sleeping, or general pain, because the Cannabidiol Oil does not penetrate deeply enough into the skin to reach the bloodstream in high enough quantities to have an effect. It will only react with the receptors in the area of application and help with itching, inflammation and oil control. It also shows the less specific effects of being an antioxidant and reducing Tran-Epidermal Water Loss (TEWL).
