As consumers accept the many potential benefits of CBD, there has been a steady and predictable increase in the number of industries adding various hemp products to their inventories. If you’ve been following the latest skin care trends, you’ve probably noticed that serums, toners, moisturizers, and CBD body care products are popping up almost everywhere. But are they beneficial? May be. Are they good for your skin? It depends.
As you browse through CBD skin care options, you will inevitably find beauty brands that charge the best price for various lotions and potions that contain little (if any) CBD. You may also find brands that add CBD to products made with ingredients that are suspected of damaging ecosystems, damaging wildlife, and interfering with healthy skin function. No option is especially useful or great for your skin.
That said, adults of all ages claim favorable results using high quality CBD products for an impressive number of skin problems. That’s why we dedicate this space to answering frequently asked questions, product recommendations, and CBD skin care data.
What is CBD? Does it cause intoxication?
Many people are initially hesitant to try CBD skin care products because of concerns about intoxication. Most find it helpful to know that cannabidiol (CBD) is one of more than 100 non-intoxicating cannabinoids produced by cannabis plants. When extracting CBD oil from the stems, stems and flowers of naturally grown hemp, you don’t have to worry. Hemp plants only produce small amounts of THC, the cannabinoid that causes the type of poisoning for which marijuana is known. Hemp-derived CBD products are incapable of causing intoxication, even when ingested in excessively large amounts.
How Do CBD Skin Care Products Work? How could topical use benefit my skin?
When you taste a CBD gum or swallow a capsule, cannabidiol is processed through the digestive system before entering the bloodstream. Once the cannabinoid circulates throughout the body, it interacts with the receptors of its largest regulatory system, the endocannabinoid system. The impact of this interaction seems to depend on which essential processes are recovered in equilibrium (homeostasis) by the support of the ECS. While results may vary from person to person, most CBD users who respond to our survey report favorable results for better sleep, relaxation, post-physical discomfort, and more. .
When applied topically, CBD interacts with the ECS receptors on the skin. While most of the evidence supporting the many potential benefits for cannabinoid skin is based on lab results and a small number of clinical trials, many people are reporting an impressive list of potential benefits for cannabinoids. skin, including help with the following skin problems.
Support barrier function
Cleansing, sun exposure, cosmetics and many other environmental factors can damage the skin’s protective barrier. Once the barrier function is compromised, the skin may lose its ability to retain essential moisture. The resulting dehydration can cause visible irritation, roughness, flaking, flaking and premature aging of the skin. Current research shows that CBD mimics the effects of the skin’s natural lipids, an effect that is believed to help improve barrier function.1
Balance oil production
Many skin care products made to help keep skin oily and prone to blemishes and clean spots are made with harsh detergents and other ingredients known to cause dryness, flaking and irritation. When any product in your skin care routine causes unnecessary dryness, oil production runs. According to what research shows so far, CBD helps balance oil production, an effect that could help reduce the frequency or severity of spots and outbreaks.2
Excess oil can adhere to the surface of the skin and bind to dead skin cells. If accumulated debris clogs the pores, any bacteria trapped under the obstruction can trigger an inflammatory response that induces stains. Current research suggests that CBD helps soothe inflammation by interacting with CB2 receptors and various other molecular channels, a benefit that researchers believe could also be useful for other inflammatory skin conditions such as eczema or to psoriasis.3
ECS receptors populate almost all skin cell types, including receptors that regulate moisture retention, collagen synthesis, pigmentation, and skin cell renewal.4 CBD’s ability to interact with these receptors gives the cannabinoid a distinct advantage over many of the chemicals commonly used as anti-aging ingredients for skin care. Unlike alpha-hydroxy acids, retinol and others, CBD has an impressive risk of side effects and is more likely to soothe irritable skin than discomfort.5,6
Could everyone benefit from a CBD skin care routine?
CBD has many potential benefits for the skin. But CBD-derived skin care products derived from hemp are not ideal for everyone. If you have a medical condition or are taking medication, consult your healthcare provider before committing to a purchase. Cannabinoid is known to interact with various medications. However, it may be a little reassuring to know that the risk of interaction is much lower when you use CBD topically because the cannabinoid is absorbed into the skin, not into the bloodstream.7
