Achieving healthy skin can feel like a chore. Cleansers, exfoliants, toners, moisturizers, creams, serums – there are almost too many products on the market today! It can be frustrating and expensive to maneuver around the products; each one has its own set of promises to transform your skin, but not all of them deliver. Even worse, many skin care products contain harsh chemicals and parabens that do anything but care for your skin.
If traditional skin care products are failing you, or if you are looking to switch to a more natural plant-based approach, cannabidiol (CBD) may be the perfect solution for your skin.
CBD delivers remarkable benefits to your skin from the moment you incorporate it into your routine. Boasting advantages like anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antioxidant properties, CBD provides healing and restorative properties.
Acne is a stubborn skin condition that affects millions of teenagers and adults. Many treatments on the market today are expensive and ineffective. Most use harsh chemicals to dry out the acne (and in turn, the skin).
As a result, users may experience redness, itching, flaking, inflammation, peeling, burning and even exacerbated acne. CBD works to heal the acne by providing both anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Working as an all-natural antibiotic, CBD targets the affected area and eliminates the fatty acids and bacteria within the skin. The terpenes, or organic compounds, found within CBD reduce the body’s sebum production as well, without drying out the skin. The acne clears up and the scars diminish, leaving you with a clear complexion.
CBD is a natural antioxidant, which means it protects your skin from free radical damage (like sun, cigarette smoke and air pollution). Serving as a barrier to the oxidants, CBD topicals nourish the skin by moisturizing, smoothing and protecting its elasticity. All the outside elements that work against your skin are fought off by the healing powers of CBD. A natural cell regenerator, CBD encourages the production of new cells and aids in removing dead skin cells, giving users the healthiest, most youthful version of their skin.
Eczema and Psoriasis
The healing properties of CBD make it an excellent remedy for eczema and psoriasis. With incredible properties like antifungal, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial, CBD calms skin irritations and uncomfortable outbreaks. Psoriasis is triggered by an overstimulated immune system, which leads to an overproduction of skin cells. The excess skin cells rapidly accumulate, causing inflamed bumps across the surface of the skin. CBD regenerates the healthy skin cells and stops the proliferation of the bad cells, delivering great advantages to your skin to help manage the symptoms of chronic skin conditions. The immunosuppressive qualities of CBD go beyond the skin’s surface to target the internal components and calm the body’s response.

How to Use CBD for Skin Care
If you ingest CBD oil through use of tinctures, you will experience total-body benefits as it penetrates deep within your nervous system to restore your skin’s homeostasis. For aromatherapy benefits, inhaling the scented CBD oils (citrus, peppermint, eucalyptus) will cross the blood-brain barrier and deliver similar results throughout the entire body. When you apply CBD topicals, or oil directly to the affected area, the CBD will help improve just that localized region. CBD salves have a powerful menthol aroma and are best used for muscle and joint aches (avoid using on the face).
Always be sure you apply CBD products to clean skin that’s free of other skin care products. This will help enhance your results, as the CBD won’t have to compete with other ingredients. Gently massage the oil into the area of concern and allow enough time for the CBD oil to penetrate your skin.
CBD goes beyond treating symptoms of skin care issues. This dynamic chemical compound works to restore homeostasis within your body, allowing you to manage your skin conditions and leaving you with a fresh face of beautiful, glowing skin. CBD is an all-natural, plant-based skin care solution with proven results. If traditional skin care products and remedies are not giving you the results you deserve, try using CBD topicals and salves.
