CBD Oil Benefits for Skin: How to Get Them?

Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is definitely having a moment. The natural ingredient from the cannabis plant (or hemp plant) has been making waves in the beauty and skincare industries thanks to its amazing benefits. More and more people are exploring ways to integrate CBD into their daily routines - and skincare is not an exception! And for good reasons: CBD oil is known to have powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Both of which could be beneficial for various skin types and conditions - ultimately promoting overall balance and skin health.

But before you start to slather your skin in CBD oil - make sure it's one specifically made to be used on skin! At Harmony we offer quality CBD products specifically formulated for your skincare needs. All of our topical products contain not only CBD but also the finest hemp seed oil and many other 100% natural ingredients to achieve glowing, healthy and balanced skin. By incorporating CBD-rich skincare into your routine you may see improvements in your skin texture. Research suggests it might even be helpful when dealing with skin conditions such as acne, eczema, or psoriasis.

Key Takeaways

  • You should use CBD oil specifically formulated for skin in your routine
  • CBD oil in your skincare can help to achieve balanced skin

Benefits of CBD on Skin

A skincare routine incorporating CBD holds numerous potential benefits - especially for those with skin conditions or concerns. CBD is not to be confused with THC (the psychoactive component found in the cannabis plant) and it is a recognized skincare ingredient completely legal in the UK and EU! Don't worry - CBD won't get you "high".

Instead consumers love CBD oil for its potential anti-inflammatory properties. These can help soothe and calm the skin. Meaning that for those with inflammatory skin conditions like eczema or psoriasis using CBD-infused products could provide relief by reducing inflammation and redness. A study has shown the endocannabinoid system's role in the skin [1] - suggesting that CBD may help alleviate these skin disorders!

In addition to these anti. inflammatory benefits CBD oil may also help regulate oil (aka "sebum") production in the skin. This is particularly interesting for people who suffer from acne, blackheads or simply oily or combination skin. A study has shown that by regulating and balancing the skin's own oil production and providing a calming effect CBD might contribute to a clearer complexion [2].

When picking out CBD skincare products for your routine it's essential to select high-quality items made from and with natural ingredients. Harmony CBD skincare is designed to help nurture and nourish your skin. We offer various topicals such as creams, facial oils and even balms. To maximise their benefits just follow the recommended usage instructions and reach out to us if you have any doubts.

CBD Skincare Benefits: There's more

One of the most well-known benefits of CBD oil for skin is the one we already discussed: its potential anti-inflammatory effect! It is what makes CBD particularly beneficial for those with sensitive skin or people suffering from conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, or dermatitis [3]. But there are also other benefits worth mentioning.

For example: CBD is known for its powerful antioxidant properties which can help protect skin from environmental stressors and pollution [4] - helping to reduce the signs of ageing. Furthermore, a Cannabis sativa extract containing CBD was shown to significantly contribute to wound healing [5]

The many products available make it easy to incorporate CBD oil and cream into your skincare routine allowing you to reap the benefits. Just remember (especially if you have sensitive skin) to do a patch test on a small area of your skin before applying any new product to your entire face or body. Give it some time to see which CBD-infused products work best for your skin type.

CBD Skin Benefits: Your Skincare Routine

CBD can make an excellent addition to your routine as it contributes to a healthy skin barrier helping you to maintain healthy skin. Specially formulated creams, lotions and balms with CBD offer various benefits like hydration, soothing effects and reducing the appearance of imperfections.

To keep your skin looking fresh and radiant consider using a daily moisturizer with CBD. Particularly for those in the UK and EU who face harsh weather conditions with cold winters and hot summers CBD can provide much-needed nourishment and moisture to the skin.

To provide relief for irritated skin try using a CBD facial oil. The topical application of a concentrated and specially formulated CBD oil directly to the skin can help to calm it significantly. This might be especially helpful for people experiencing skin conditions as CBD may alleviate some of the discomfort associated with these issues.

You see: using topical CBD can improve the overall appearance of your skin. With its proven anti-inflammatory properties CBD may reduce the appearance of blemishes and redness - giving your skin a more even complexion. By including CBD oil in your skincare routine you're allowing your skin to reap the benefits of its versatile properties.
