Why CBD is good for your skin

As the cannabidiol offers antioxidant and anti-inflammatory relief it aids skin creams to reduce dryness and reduces irritation. It has also been shown to reduce acne and early clinical trials show it has been effective in the treatment of eczema and psoriasis also.

Which CBD skincare product should you choose? 

If you are venturing into a skincare range that contains CBD, then look for products that contain cannabidiol or hemp extract on the label. This means that it contains CBD oil that has been extracted from the leaves and flowers of the plant making the oil so much finer and lighter which is perfect for skin.

How to use CBD skincare products? 

There are several options available to you from using beauty products as directed on their packaging however, you may also like to use the oil directly to your skin. This is useful if you have dry skin and want to deal with it immediately. Another option is to use the CBD oil and mix it with essential oils. This can be applied directly to your skin where you can leave it for a few minutes and then wash it off. This is the same as applying a serum to your face.  

Are there side effects of using CBD in your beauty regime? 

CBD-infused products are safe to use as they don’t contain any psychoactive properties. However, when using new products it is best to patch test the cream. If you are using the product topically there may be some mild skin irritation no matter how you are using the product so patch testing will ensure you are prepared for the product.

Conclusion

CBD oil in beauty products offers many benefits some of which have been proven while others are in the early days of research. Starting a beauty regime with products that contain CBD oil is worth a go before you move on to applying the product topically for skin problems.
