There is a lot of buzz about all of the potential benefits that CBD oil, gummies, and other products can have on a person’s health and wellbeing. Right now, much of the focus centers on improving one’s mood and possibly reducing anxiety.
So with that in mind, we want to highlight another potential perk—that of CBD and the impact it can make on your skin.
Putting the Spotlight on Your Skin
Cannabidiol (CBD) is derived from the cannabis plant and is put into a variety of products to potentially treat many conditions.
The reason that CBD oils, balms, and lotions can help with relieving common skin issues is because CBD contains calming properties that can reduce inflammation and boost nutrients.
Plus, because CBD isn’t likely to produce any negative side effects, it is great for all skin types, meaning that even if you have sensitive skin, you will likely benefit from using CBD to treat acne, eczema, and psoriasis. It is a healing cannabinoid, and there are many holistic benefits that can be experienced if you use CBD topically, meaning you put it directly on your skin.
Do Doctors Recommend CBD for the Skin?
It must be stated that while some of the research related to CBD’s effects on the skin is currently limited, it has been deemed safe to use topically and many board-certified dermatologists endorse this. Dr. Adarsh Mudgil, a double board-certified dermatologist and founder of Mudgil Dermatology noted, “There is likely no harm in continuing to use a CBD-infused product you like. If you happen to have a reaction from a CBD topical product, it’s likely not from the CBD itself, but some other ingredient like a botanical.”
Ultimately, using CBD on the skin can help with inflammation while also improving hydration and decreasing skin dryness. Furthermore, it can serve to protect against and minimize free radical damage that occurs through exposure to pollutants, UV rays, and other toxins.
How Do I Decide on a CBD Skincare Product?
Now, if you find yourself intrigued by the potential benefits CBD could have on your skin, but you feel completely overwhelmed by the sheer number of options, the team at Asé Pure Naturals encourages you to take a deep breath. Our advice to you is to focus on quality. Look for products that mention “cannabidiol,” “broad spectrum CBD,” and “full-spectrum CBD.” Additionally, look at the manufacturing and extraction process that the product goes through.
You want to ensure that what it says on the label is actually what you are getting, so before you purchase, ensure the company you are thinking of buying from publishes their 3rd party test results—this will give you peace of mind related to quality and potency.
