CBD Skin Care: Bringing Benefits and Beauty To A Higher Level
When it comes to your typical daily skincare regimen, it has always been pretty basic. Cleanse, tone, exfoliate and moisturize has remained the foundation of daily skin care, that is, until now! CBD skin care products are changing the way we view the role of beauty products, benefits and procedures. In the past, we slathered our faces and bodies with cleansers, creams and lotions that were full of chemicals. We never gave a thought to what effect those chemicals might have on our general health. Times have changed and we have entered a higher level of perception of beauty and caring for our skin. Let’s explore how and why the benefits of CBD skin care have raised the bar on natural beauty, health and well-being.
So far, scientific research and studies have provided some pretty amazing information on the efficacy of CBD for dermatological use. The primary medicinal properties of CBD (cannabidiol): pain relief, anti-anxiety, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antibacterial, play an extensive role as a treatment aid for skin disorders. These properties also contribute to the benefits of CBD oil for daily skincare. In order to understand how CBD delivers these properties to and through the skin, we need to look to the Endocannabinoid System.
CBD, The Skin and The Endocannabinoid System
The Endocannabinoid System is a vast biological network, in the body, composed of endocannabinoids (lipid based neurotransmitters) that bind to cannabinoid receptors on cells throughout the brain, organs (including the largest organ, the skin) and immune system. The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) helps regulate numerous functions such as sleep, mood, pain, and inflammation to name only a few. The ultimate biological goal of the ECS is to bring the body to a state of homeostasis or balance, in order for the body to function optimally at all times.
Cannabinoids come mainly from two places: naturally produced from within the body (endocannabinoids) or from the cannabis and hemp plants, which produce phytocannabinoids.
When CBD is taken internally or applied topically, it’s beneficial effects are due to the way in which it interacts with the two primary receptors known as CB1 and CB2 receptors.
CB1 and CB2 receptors are present in nearly all skin cells. When CBD oil or CBD infused products is applied to the skin it does not reach the bloodstream. However, it does absorb to deep layers of the skin where it interacts with nearby CB2 receptors. In addition to the CB2 activity, the CBD will also bind with the TRPV-1 receptors, where it helps with feelings of pain, inflammation, heat and itching.
It is this activity that provides localized pain relief as well as relief from many skin disorder symptoms. It is also because of this receptor activity that the many other benefits of CBD are powerfully delivered to the skin.
Hemp Oil and CBD Deliver Multiple Benefits For The Skin
CBD skincare products that are sourced from high quality American hemp flower have been demonstrated to provide superior multiple benefits to the skin. Hemp has the highest content of CBD of the cannabis sativa plants. In addition to the other phytocannabinoids found in the hemp plant, the oil sourced from hemp seed provides unparalleled nutrition and benefits for the skin and the entire human body. Natural hemp based CBD and hemp seed oil products, along with other natural ingredients, that work together synergistically, deliver healthy glowing skin.
Wake Up Your Skin With A CBD Coffee Mask
Due to the increasing popularity and demand for natural CBD skin care and cosmetics, many companies have developed powerful, innovative products. Enflower, a Colorado based, CBD cosmetic company, offers an exotic Coffee Mask that will give your skin a new spin on your morning coffee. This unique product will wake up your skin with exfoliating properties that remove dirt and dead skin. In addition, the hemp oil nourishes your skin with a high level of fatty acids, as the CBD oil protects and rejuvenates with it’s unsurpassed level of antioxidants. You will face your day with smooth, soft, glowing skin prepared to take on both the toxins and joys of the world.
Say Hello to Long-Lasting Hydration With CBD Creams and Topicals
Another unique factor of natural CBD topicals, such as creams and lotions, is their multi-functional use. For instance, a CBD eye cream that is formulated to target the sensitive eye area to reduce puffiness and dark circles, can also double as both a day and night face serum. The CBD properties that reduce inflammation (puffiness) along with other oils and ingredients, and help lighten dark circles around the eyes, also target sunspots, sunburn, rashes, dryness and anti-aging all over your face.
CBD creams have also become a natural alternative as a treatment aid and preventative for acne. Many chemical based acne treatments can often become, over time, an irritant to the skin and have the reverse effect in the treatment process. CBD creams, especially those that are formulated with hemp oil and other natural essential oils and ingredients provide the anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, moisturizing (without clogging pores) properties that can treat and help prevent acne.
Rejuvenate Your Mind and Body With CBD Bath Bombs
Last, but certainly NOT least, is the fabulous all over skin care, pain relieving, relaxing and soul healing product known as the CBD Bath Bomb. This luxurious CBD delivery method takes a hot bath to new dimensions of delight.
