How CBD oil improves your skin

Adding CBD oils to your skincare regime can revitalise your skin and make you feel more refreshed and energised. Discover how CBD oils can benefit your skin and give you that feel-good factor.

“Your skin is the fingerprint of what is going on inside your body, and all skin conditions, from psoriasis to acne to ageing, are the manifestations of your body’s internal needs, including its nutritional needs.” … Dr Georgiana Donadio

From serums, lotions, creams, balms and salves this hugely popular natural ingredient will quickly become one of your ‘go-to’ favourite skin soothers. Cannabidiol (CBD) will not get you high even when ingested sublingually or taken as a supplement. CBD has evolved into a legitimate addition in the world of skincare products with its natural therapeutic properties.

So how does CBD benefit your skin? CBD provides a number of therapeutic benefits that can be added to your skincare regime. It is an anti-oxidant, an anti-inflammatory and is anti-ageing, a viewpoint echoed by Aesthetician Jeannel Astarita. ‘’With an impressive and ever-growing number of studies finding to be a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory among many other properties, it is now being used to treat pain, anxiety, spasms and much more.”

What is CBD Oil?

CBD extracted from the leaves and flowers of the cannabis plants hemp, indica and sativa are the chemical components of natures’ plant. Indica and sativa are controlled substances in the UK granted legal limited medical use by the government in 2018. All varieties of cannabis plants can either be high or low in CBD and Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content. Cannabis plants high in CBD are referred to as hemp plants. Its potency depends upon the dilution with a carrier oil. This can range from between 1-99%. Some CBD oil contains small traces of THC the psychoactive constituent found in marijuana plants associated with the ‘high’ when used recreationally. Hemp plants grown with high levels of CBD are leading the way for inclusion in a range of skincare products to alleviate a variety of skin conditions.

The difference between CBD and Hemp oil

Although CBD is extracted from hemp, the process used determines whether it is CBD or hemp. A cold-pressing process of hemp flowers and leaves simply yields hemp seed oil. However, to ensure the extraction of CBD, the preferred method is CO2 used over oil or ethanol.

Benefits of CBD in skincare

The natural therapeutic benefits of CBD are multi-faceted for its inclusion in your daily skincare regime. As an antioxidant CBD acts as an agent that particle free-radicals bond with to prevent it from causing DNA damage. The process of ageing and inflammation are closely related, skin ageing, in particular, is more noticeable.

To quote Coco Chanel “Nature gives you the face you have at twenty; it is up to you to merit the face you have at fifty” and beyond. Using CBD in your skincare regime helps to combat the oxidative stressors associated with ageing and inflammation. As one of natures’ natural moisturisers, Hemp seed oil is rich in fatty acids. It is important to check the ingredient content of your skincare products to ensure CBD is included. If not, a little mixology adding a drop or two to your moisturiser is recommended.

CBD is one of natures’ most influential elements promoting well-being as it enhances natural beauty that helps to alleviate everyday stressors. Within the human body itself, your Endocannabinoid System regulates all key systems of the body which impact on your physical, emotional and mental well-being. CBD has been shrouded in mystery for too long. Try it yourself, and experience the overwhelming benefits the CBD oil can bring to your skincare regime.
