With the growing popularity of natural body care products, it is no surprise that there has been a burst in the market for new and exciting ways to take care of your skin. Did you know that you can refresh and rejuvenate your body with CBD oils through the use of everyday skin care products? You read that right. Your morning shower or nightly face wash routine has the potential to become even more therapeutic– step into the world of CBD based skin products and elevate your self-care days with healthy and natural ingredients.
What are Cosmeceuticals?
Some cosmetics are infused with medicinal properties that cater to a wide range of skin challenges. These products are called cosmeceuticals (aptly named to combine “cosmetics” and pharmaceuticals”) and they are now at the tips of your fingers. Any soap, lotion, moisturizer or lip balm that is infused with cannabinoids is a cosmeceutical, but not all cosmeceuticals contain cannabinoids. Naturally, we will focus on the former and how CBD skin care products can literally change your life.
How do hemp and CBD Cosmeceuticals Work?
Natural body products infused with cannabinoid properties are applied topically and combine safe ingredients and essential oils to nourish and aromatize your skin. Many cosmetics include retinol (aka Vitamin A1) and rely on its skin cell rejuvenation to provide anti-aging effects. While retinol is a tried and true ingredient in many people’s skin regimens, it has powerful side effects that make your skin worse before making it better. Retinol dries out oil glands and can lead to inflammation, redness and flaking–once you peel away your dead skin cells you may start to see results over time. All natural, CBD infused cosmetics do not abuse your skin before making it better, and their anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties actually improve skin damage caused by retinization.
When CBD interacts with your skin it can have incredible healing qualities. Many users of these natural products have reported instant smoothing and softening of skin, as well as overnight relief of acne and blemishes. From eczema and psoriasis to anti-inflammation and anti-aging, there is a large number of skin challenges that CBD infused body care can soothe. Because CBD is non-psychoactive, it is a safe and natural way to refresh and revive your skin.
When used topically, natural skin care products infused with CBD have stronger antioxidant properties than Vitamins A, C and E. These antioxidants work wonders in nourishing and repairing damaged skin. Now that you know a bit more about natural skin care and how CBD infused products can help you, there are a number of serums, moisturizers and cleansers that you can use to upgrade your self care.
This Purifying Foaming Cleaner does as advertised, and can be used morning and night to wash away the stresses of the day, along with any makeup that has managed to cling on until the last minute. If lotion is what you are looking for, this Silky Body Moisturizer nourishes the skin with Aloe Vera extract, CBD and a variety of other natural ingredients. And who can forget about bath time? This Lip + Eye Balm is organic cocoa butter infused with CBD and, creating a protective and emollient butter that helps the skin to prevent moisture loss while softening and lubricating the skin. These products and many more are just a click away. — dive in and treat yo self. Your skin care regimen just got a whole lot better.
