Many women cannot imagine the beginning or end of the day without cosmetics. These products serve to care and nourish skin and maintain its health. They are, in a way, a barrier between you and the harmful influence of external elements.
The list of cosmetics in which cannabidiol is infused is getting longer every day. Since CBD has become a highly sought-after component in medicine and pharmacy, it was only a matter of time until the cosmetics industry began using it. Today, you can find various products are on the market intended for different skin types or conditions.
Besides cosmetics, cannabidiol is widely used in medicine and pharmacy. According to Cheef Botanicals experts, this hemp derivative has numerous health benefits, led by anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial action. Lack of psychoactive properties is another benefit of CBD.
CBD in cosmetic Care Products
Daily cosmetics are the ones used for cleansing and nourishing the skin. These are soaps, shower gels, shampoos, and even bath bombs and salts. In all these, it is possible to infuse cannabidiol. This compound will enhance the effects these care products have.
The use of these products is beneficial for all skin types. For example, along with vitamin E, CBD reaches the epidermis’ deeper layers and restores skin elasticity as it boosts natural collagen production (ECS oversees that). CBD added to cosmetics also nourishes the skin as it has a bunch of nutrients like omega fatty acids, amino acids, and vitamin complexes.
Application of cannabidiol after steaming the skin with warm water (when bathing, washing hair, or hands) allows for its rapid absorption. Steam enlarges pores and let this compound to enter the bloodstream more quickly. Thus, it has a faster effect, and the full-body benefits abound.
Another area in which the anti-inflammatory properties of cannabidiol give excellent results is anti-age treatments. It acts on deeper skin layers and soothes inflammation that might cause issues that will make you look older than you are. These are conditions like rash, itching, or red patches.
This compound also abounds in antioxidants that are excellent as anti-aging agents. They expel free radicals from the surface, particles that cause oxidative stress to skin and make it dry and lifeless. Cannabidiol activates receptors in ECS to reverse this process by forcing proper cellular response (keeping natural moisture and producing new surface cells).
CBD anti-age cosmetics offer products that successfully fight against age. These are mostly serums, day and night creams, lip balms, neck care creams, and many more. The amount of CBD in them can vary, but these are usually low doses. But they are quite enough to see the positive effects very quickly.
In addition to CBD, these products also contain other active ingredients that help restore the skin’s natural barrier. Thus, speed up the ‘work’ of the deeper layers of the epidermis, which boost the regeneration of the surface layer.
Products for Treating Skin Processes
As the largest and ‘most protruding’ organ of your body, the skin suffers from the influence of all external factors – pollution, heat, cold, radiation, etc. If you want good skin as you age you need to keep it healthy. If the amount of sebum is increased, and at the same time, too much dirt has collected on the surface, the blackheads will appear. And if there are bacteria nearby, an infection will erupt on your skin and cause pimples to appear.
Due to the already mentioned anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, CBD helps control sebum levels in people with oily skin. By keeping the cells that produce this waxy matter under control, this compound ‘destroys’ pimples and prevents their further appearance.
CBD-based cosmetics also offer products for the treatment of diseases such as psoriasis or eczema. These conditions often cause a feeling of tension, tightness, and itching. Thanks to its mild analgesic properties, cannabidiol ‘soothes’ the skin and acts on ECS to trigger brain mechanism that bring pain relief to people suffering any skin condition.
The concept of natural cosmetics is increasingly present on the market. The most famous brands are cutting some artificial matters from products, as these are not as useful as thought. Instead, these companies seem to have started using natural, plant-based compounds such as CBD in their products. It looks to be highly beneficial and safe, even for everyday usage.
