The positive properties of CBD oil are also used in skin care and face care. More and more satisfied customers swear by the advantages of this natural product. We already described the medicinal healing effects of CBD (cannabidiol) in our first article about CBD oil. There you can also find all information about the composition of the oil and why it has no psychoactive effects.
Now this little miracle cure can not only be taken orally, but it also has an extremely positive effect on our skin when applied externally.
Why exactly is CBD oil so good against wrinkles, blemished skin and even an anti-aging agent? I would like to take a closer look at these points:
CBD oil for facial skin care
CBD oil is ideal for the care of the facial skin for various reasons. First of all, you should know that our skin aging is mainly caused by free radicals, which lead to the oxidation of our cells. Free radicals are mainly caused by the action of UV radiation. The antioxidant properties of CBD oil neutralize these free radicals and thus actively prevent the aging process of our skin!
The essential fatty acids contained in the oil such as Gamma-linolenic acid and alpha-linolenic acid strengthen our skin’s hydro-lipid film. This skin’s own protective layer prevents the penetration of bacteria and toxins and thus ensures a clean and supple complexion. This protective coat weakens with age. CBD oil actively counteracts this process and is therefore ideal for dry and blemished skin. Vitamins A, C and E also contribute to a healthy and radiant complexion.
CBD oil for wrinkles
The gamma-linolenic acid mentioned above has an additional anti-aging effect. Their moisture-binding properties supply our skin cells with additional liquid. So you can effectively counteract the formation of wrinkles. A prerequisite for this is, of course, adequate fluid intake. After all, the body can only store the water in the skin if it is supplied with it.
CBD oil for pimples and blemished skin
CBD has complex anti-inflammatory properties, and natural products have an astonishingly good effect on the sebaceous glands of our skin. It is able to regulate the overproduction of sebum, which is largely responsible for the formation of pimples. The anti-inflammatory properties of cannabidiol are also active against skin inflammation.
The whole thing is supported by this study, which was published by “The Journal of Clinical Investigation”. The Hungarian scientists and authors of this study even describe CBD as a promising agent for acne therapy.
CBD oil for general skin diseases
It has been shown that all skin diseases and skin complaints such as psoriasis, neurodermatitis or dry, inflamed areas can be greatly alleviated or completely cured by repeated application and rubbing in of CBD oil or CBD balm.
Since we added CBD products to our range at Growzone-Mallorca, numerous anecdotes and experience reports from our customers about how CBD has cured various rashes that previously had to be treated with cortisone ointment.
Lip balm with CBD for dry and sore lips
Thanks to the antioxidant, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties of CBD, a lip balm enriched with CBD oil offers numerous advantages over conventional lip balms.
Especially at very low temperatures and wind, our lips tend to dry out and crack open. Not only does this feel extremely uncomfortable, but if it is left untreated, lips can cause bleeding and inflammation. Taking certain medications can also cause chapped lips. Moistening his lips by licking it only makes it worse in the long run …
The individual advantages of CBD lip balm for chapped lips:
CBD lip balm In contrast to most conventional products, a high-quality lip balm with CBD does much more than just greasing the lips. The contained CBD oil makes dry lips supple again and at the same time relieves wound pain. The healing properties of CBD, already mentioned, ensure rapid wound healing and healing of inflammations that have arisen in only a few applications.
Since our lips cannot produce any protective oils themselves, we have our CBD lip balm with additional moisturizing organic oils, such as Almond oil, castor seed oil, hydrogenated olive oil, and avocado oil are added. With chapped and sore lips, they contribute to regeneration and provide additional protection.
CBD products for skin and face cosmetics – conclusion:
The cannabinoid called cannabidiol, or CBD for short, derived from the hemp plant is not called medicinal cannabis for nothing. There are more and more studies and experience reports that prove the healing effects of CBD.
It was only a matter of time before this natural product with all its positive properties would also be used in the cosmetic field. Especially in skin care, cannabidiol offers a lot of nourishing and healing properties.
When choosing a product, care should be taken to ensure that all ingredients used are from organic farming. A certificate of analysis should always be attached to the product. There are e.g. Information about the actual CBD share.
