Is CBD Oil Good For Your Skin?
CBD is having a major moment right now. From smoothies to skincare, it seems we can’t go anywhere without seeing these three letters and hearing about its benefits. But WTH is it? And what’s all the buzz about?
For starters, there’s no buzz with CBD — that is, this natural chemical won’t be getting you high (turn back now, if you must).
What is CBD?
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a non-psychoactive compound extracted from cannabis plants.
CBD communicates with our endocannabinoid system, a vast network of receptors and molecules throughout the body that have a primary goal of maintaining balance in a number of bodily systems and functions.
By mimicking chemicals that we naturally produce, CBD supplements the endocannabinoid system and in turn, is capable of influencing thousands of interactions within the body. So what does all of this mean for our skin?
CBD Oil in Your Skincare Routine
When we apply CBD oil topically, the compound syncs up with the endocannabinoid receptors in our skin and gets to work helping to control the balance of our skin cell functions.
And as it turns out, CBD’s intuitive nature allows it to address a variety of skin woes. For example,
- CBD can target both dry skin and acne by regulating our skin’s natural production of lipids and oils (we love Lab To Beauty’s The Balancing Face Wash for this).
- What’s more, CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties can reduce the puffiness, redness, and swelling that accompany a variety of skin imbalances.
- CBD is also a potent antioxidant, helping to protect our skin from free radicals, UV rays, and environmental toxins that lead to signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles.
- Beyond its know-it-all healing properties, CBD contains an array of essential nutrients that nourish and protect skin including fatty acids, vitamins, and proteins (try Lab To Beauty’s The Omega Fatty Facial Moisturizer).
