Should You Be Using CBD in Your Skincare Routine?
CBD is growing in popularity and comes with claims that it can help with a wide array of skin concerns. But is it really worth the hype?
What is CBD?
CBD is shorthand for cannabidiol. CBD can be ingested or applied topically to relieve some aches, pains, anxiety and, increasingly, skin concerns. Most skincare products use CBD in an oil form.
What are the skin benefits?
CBD is starting to find its way in more and more skincare formulations to help with acne, signs of aging and sensitive skin. Much of the benefit of CBD lies in its anti-inflammatory and skin-soothing properties, which makes it great for anyone with breakout-prone or sensitive skin. This skin soothing can help reduce redness and the below-the-skin irritation that can lead to breakouts.
Research also shows that CBD may reduce oil production by minimizing inflammation in oil-producing skin cells, a huge benefit for those with oily, acneic skin. Including this ingredient in a regimen for oily skin can help balance oil production.
For aging skin, CBD’s antioxidant properties can help protect the skin from free radical damage from things like pollution and sun exposure. CBD can also help combat skin dryness, which is common as the skin ages.
