MY CBD Choices - CBD Oil and its Benefits

Should You Consider Switching Your Skincare Regime to Include CBD?

Our skin is the outer covering of the body, and is the body’s largest organ. The skin has up to seven layers of tissue and guards the underlying muscles, bones, ligaments and internal organs. Though nearly all human skin is covered with hair follicles, it can appear hairless.

Because it interfaces with the environment, skin plays an important immunity role in protecting the body against environmental dangers and pathogens, as well as excessive water loss. Its other functions are insulation, temperature regulation, sensation, synthesis of vitamin D, and the protection of vitamin B folates. Severely damaged skin will try to heal by forming scar tissue. This is often discolored and de-pigmented.

CBD sits at the perfect intersection of a few of our current preoccupations; wellness, natural beauty and a general feeling of anxiety.

It’s been a long time since a single ingredient caused such industry-wide ripples. It rapidly achieved super-star status, and yet questions abound. What exactly is CBD? We’ve previously covered this in other articles. Does it get you high? Absolutely not.

So WHY should you bother including it in your routine?

It’s the most buzzed about beauty ingredient of the moment – and perhaps also the most poorly understood. Shrouded in mystery, acronyms, and jargon, let’s take a good look at what CBD really is and how it is used in skincare.

WHAT IS IT USED FOR?

CBD is safe and effective for all skin types, but especially helpful to people who struggle with inflammatory skin conditions, skin sensitivity, headaches, skin dryness, and acne. Because of its powerful anti-inflammatory properties, CBD can help support the skin’s natural healing process, shortening the lifespan of breakouts and eczema/psoriasis flare-ups. If you are struggling with skin issues, consider using CBD as an effective skin care solution.

A restorative solution for all skin types including acne-prone and sensitive skin, CBD is a natural plant compound that’s been shown to help reduce inflammation and support the skin’s natural healing process.
CBD Oil for Acne

What’s clear from numerous studies is that CBD oil functions as an anti-inflammatory. So how does that translate to skincare? One way is its ability to help calm skin, particularly skin that’s acne-prone. Because acne is an inflammatory condition, research indicates CBD’s soothing properties can help diminish breakouts and reduce redness. Surprisingly, recent findings also show that CBD has the potential to decrease excessive sebum (oil) production, as well as help offset other triggers of acne.

Without question, far more conclusive, scientific studies are needed, but CBD’s potential as an alternative acne solution is exciting.
CBD Oil for Anti-Aging and Wrinkles

It turns out CBD oil also has antioxidant properties which contribute to the research indicating it can help lessen the visible signs of aging skin. By counteracting free-radical damage, CBD anti-aging creams may be able to help visibly diminish issues like wrinkles, skin dullness, and ruddy skin tone.

Of course, there are plenty of other antioxidants out there that can make the same claims so CBD isn’t the only or “best” antioxidant to seek out; rather, it’s just one of many to consider (learn more about our favorite antioxidant-rich serums).
CBD Oil for Sensitive Skin

Another benefit of CBD oil is that it has been found to have significant soothing properties. Its substantial skin-calming and skin-normalizing effects can help minimize issues related to skin sensitivity, including redness. Even if you don’t think of your skin as “sensitive” per se, all skin types are affected by environmental stressors, so CBD’s soothing mechanism can help keep skin in check.

CBD is safe and effective for all skin types, but especially helpful to people who struggle with inflammatory skin conditions, skin sensitivity, headaches, skin dryness, and acne. Because of its powerful anti-inflammatory properties, CBD can help support the skin’s natural healing process, shortening the lifespan of breakouts and skin condition flare-ups. If you are struggling with skin issues, consider using CBD as an effective skin care solution.

“I always say CBD offers a three-pronged skincare approach – it’s anti-aging, anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory,” said Samir Juneja, who left behind a career in pharmaceuticals to start a CBD skin care company. “

In terms of an antioxidant on the skin, it provides a missing particle that a free radical can bond with, stopping it from going on to cause DNA damage. As for anti-inflammatory properties, we know that skin aging and inflammation go hand in hand, and CBD helps to combat oxidative stress.”
WHAT YOU SHOULD LOOK FOR

Because the CBD industry is still fairly young, it’s important to find products that are truly pure and effective.

Price is often a marker of purity; if you find a CBD oil claiming 100 mg potency for under $40, chances are that the CBD is not pure and cannot be sold throughout the country or world. Look for products that clearly claim CBD purity, and that are manufactured under the GMP quality system guidelines. These products contain CBD that has been carefully extracted and formulated for PURITY. The purer the CBD, the more effective it will be for your skin.
