The skincare industry is flocking to CBD (Cannabidiol) in many skincare products, why? CBD is an amazing phytochemical, rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, and is believed to have incredible healing properties. When CBD is applied to the skin, it acts as an optimizer that increases the benefits of many of the active ingredients of other products, and allows them to penetrate deeper into the skin.
Spas are getting on board with CBD facials, to provide a luxurious treat that is incredibly rich and suitable for all skin types. Here are some of the reasons for CBD’s increasing popularity.
- Soothes the Skin
CBD has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties. The addition of CBD to your facial can help relieve any inflammation and redness caused by extractions or exfoliation, making your recovery shorter. CBD oil can also be beneficial in soothing the effects of Eczema or Psoriasis. CBD facials are also very helpful for personal stress relief. Also, the anti-anxiety properties can help you regain and boost your physical and mental energy levels. (CBD has already become the most popular stress remedy, FYI😊)
- Good for Acne
CBD facials are packed with anti-inflammatory properties that can reduce the visual effects of acne. CBD oil can also assist in reducing sebum production, which in turn can help reduce pore clogging that often leads to breakouts. CBD facials treat your acne, removing the blemishes and giving you crystal clear, vibrant, and nourished skin.
- Good for Sensitive Skin
With the substantial skin-calming and skin-normalizing effects of CBD, these facials are perfect for all skin types, from normal to sensitive skin, to bring the natural beauty and benefits from the inside out.
- Reduces the Outward Signs of Aging Skin
CBD is rich in terpenes, (a source of natural antioxidant properties) that help reduce face puffiness and fight the visible signs of aging on the skin. It helps to fight the effects of free radicals that are a major contributing factor in the skins aging process. CBD slows down the formation of fine lines, and reduces wrinkles by strengthening your skin, leaving it more elastic and supple.
- Aids in Healing the Skin
CBDs molecular structure allows it to more effectively penetrate deeper into the skin. When CBD is incorporated throughout a facial, it acts as a carrier for the other products used, allowing them to penetrate deeper into the skin, thereby increasing their effectiveness.
With the perfect balance of nutrients and significant antibacterial properties, CBD is effective against many harmful bacteria found on your skin. These bacteria can be responsible for many serious infections, or simply creating irritations and breakouts.
- Super Hydrating
From revitalizing a dull complexion, to fixing uneven skin tone and dark spots, CBD contains a variety of healthy fatty acids and excellent moisturizing properties that reduce peeling of the skin, and provide extra moisture to help alleviate rough and scaly patches on the skin, it also helps to plump and enliven aging skin as previously mentioned.
So, in conclusion, CBD is being hailed as a new cure-all treatment for many maladies these days. Whether it is effective for everything that is claimed of it, I don’t know, but I have personally witnessed many of the skin care benefits that I have listed above, and I am extremely confidant in recommending it to many of my clients to help treat many of their skincare concerns.
