For those following the latest healthcare news, the term ‘cannabidiol’ or CBD must’ve come up multiple times. This naturally-occurring non-psychoactive compound is obtained from the plant Cannabis sativa. It has quickly garnered extensive popularity for its scientifically proven health benefits for epilepsy, CBD for skin, chronic pain, anxiety, and sleep disturbances.

Owing to the promising outcomes of CBD in skincare studies, it is now a fairly common ingredient in skincare products, usually diluted with carrier oils like olive, coconut, or hemp seed oil. In addition, the use of CBD for skin is dominating both the male and female skincare industry, with an abundance of CBD-infused skincare products now available for managing acne, dryness, eczema, wrinkling, and much more.

So what makes CBD so special when it comes to skincare? Read on to find out how CBD can benefit your skin and how to use these products to reap maximum benefits.

CBD Skin Care Benefits

Here’s everything you need to know about using CBD for glowing, youthful skin.

CBD for Wrinkles

Here’s some good news for women: CBD-infused anti-aging and anti-wrinkle creams have shown significant results in making the skin appear younger and rejuvenated.

The secret that makes CBD so promising against wrinkles is its vitamin profile; it contains large amounts of vitamins A, C, and E, all well-known antioxidants that destroy damage-causing free radicals and toxins from inside the body. This helps reduce wrinkles and improves overall skin tone.

Many studies support the anti-aging ability of CBD, along with its effectiveness in regenerating damaged skin, reducing fine lines, and eliminating puffiness underneath the eyes.

CBD for Skin Inflammation and Acne

The anti-inflammatory properties of CBD help control and minimize skin outbreaks such as acne, a fairly common skin condition that can become quite embarrassing and irritating. It does this by reducing the unnecessary sebum (oil) production from skin cells and preventing the activation of cytokines (proteins that trigger acne).

Studies have also shown that CBD derived from Cannabis sativa strains possesses unique antibacterial and antifungal properties, reducing skin outbreaks caused by dirt, germs, or pollution accumulating on the skin.

CBD for Dry Skin and Sensitive Skin

Those struggling with sensitive or dry skin will understand that repeated washing or using harsh cleansing products often results in inflammation and redness, itchiness, and more damage to the skin.

Alternatively, CBD oil-infused hand or face moisturizers/topical creams provide significant relief due to the compound’s skin-stabilizing, anti-inflammatory, and overall soothing properties.

CBD for Sunburns

Everyone wants to avoid skin pigmentation, darkening, and uneven skin tone. But going out is inevitable, and the sun’s ultraviolet rays aren’t very forgiving.

Thankfully, CBD can help protect the skin against the sun’s harsh rays; mixing a single drop of CBD oil with your usual sunscreen can significantly enhance its protective abilities. And even better: use a CBD-infused sunscreen (SPF 50) to avoid sunburns. 

This is mainly because CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties, coupled with sunscreens’ ingredients, protect the skin’s proteins responsible for maintaining its smoothness and elasticity. 

How to Use CBD Oil for Skin

Although CBD is considered safe for the face and body, it is suggested that you first test any CBD-infused skin care product on a small region of your body (arm, leg, thigh) to ensure you’re not allergic to any of its ingredients.

Also, always prefer to buy organic products. They are the best and safest formulations for the skin since they generally contain additional nutrients, such as beneficial minerals and vitamins in the Cannabis plant. 

Final Thoughts

Research has shown that CBD oil-infused creams and moisturizers hold immense potential in managing adverse skin conditions such as inflammation and dryness and reducing the effects of aging. And anything that makes your skin glow and looks younger without harsh side effects is a winning skincare candidate!
