CBD Oil and skincare is being discussed more and more in the industry. It’s already known for its stress reducing, pain relieving and many other benefits, but it’s also great for skin-boosting use.
Forbes have indicated the Hemp Cannabis industry will be worth more than £1.5 billion by 2020.
Studies have shown that CBD oil’s potential for treating skin conditions such as eczema, are very high as it encourages abnormal cell death (abnormal cells are what causes the skin condition in the first place). It can also help regulate your skins oil production – which could help to significantly reduce acne, as well as containing nutrients such as Vitamin E to help improve and protect your skin from further damage.
Top 5 Benefits
There’s many reason’s that products containing CBD are becoming more and more popular, especially when you are getting the natural benefits of the hemp, without any of the psychoactive properties you would otherwise get when consuming the THC side of the plant.
Adding products that contain CBD to your skincare routine means that you don’t have to worry about trying to consume more vitamins in your daily diet. Your skin will get all the Vitamin D & E that it requires through the oil – protecting it from any damage caused by the sun and keeping it firmer and tighter for longer. Not only that, it also contains some Vitamin A & D which can help with previously dry and flaky skin.
CBD oil will provide necessary healthy fatty acids to your skin if applied regularly, which are often lacking those with acne. It also contains antibacterial properties which can help to treat infection, PLUS the fatty acids supplies protect and strengthen the top layer of your skin, resulting in your face looking fresher and more youthful.
- Brand New Skin
A study published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology has expressed that cannabinoid receptors in the brain form a part of the endocannabinoid system. They can interact with the CBD oil to increase the growth of new skin cells as our bodies have a natural ability to do so. Meaning your body’s regenerative process will be boosted from the addition of CBD, so you will actually have younger skin.
- Skin Conditions
As mentioned above, CBD has been linked to help with skin conditions such as eczema, so why not try a natural alternative to man-made products? This has also been mentioned to help with dermatitis, while also hydrating and soothing dryness in your skin and help with the flaking and itching too! And although research is still ongoing, it has been used to help relieve symptoms of psoriasis, allergies and even skin cancer.
Hydration is key! And CBD oil is becoming natures most effective moisturiser due to the omega 3 and fatty acids it contains. It has shown to help clear up your dry skin whether it’s come from the topical change, or it’s a year-round think.
