CBD for Skincare

0

It seems like CBD is everywhere these days. It's in the medication that treats rare forms of Epilepsy and the products that promote skin health. From CBD infused moisturizers to CBD infused lip balms, you can find all kinds of CBD products for skin care in the market, but is there any scientific evidence of the benefits these CBD skincare products provide? Let's take a look.

CBD and Types of CBD Skincare Products

CBD is one of the 113 known cannabinoids of the cannabis plant. Unlike its cousin THC, CBD is non-psychoactive and doesn't intoxicate the user or make them feel high. The naturally occurring cannabinoid is more prevalent in the hemp plant, but it is also found in THC-rich strains of the cannabis plant. 

Manufacturers are infusing CBD in almost all kinds of skincare products that you can ingest or apply directly on your skin. Usually, these products contain one of the three main types of CBD; isolate, broad-spectrum, or full-spectrum. Ingestible CBD products for skincare include CBD oil, while CBD topicals include creams, balms, lotions, moisturizers, salves, bath oils, masks, soaps, serums, cleansers, etc. All these products are almost the same as their non-CBD counterparts but with the added benefits of CBD. 

CBD for Acne

Acne is a chronic inflammatory skin disorder and it is the most common skin disease in the United States. Acne treatments target various acne-causing factors, but anything with soothing and anti-inflammatory properties can reduce acne breakouts and redness. CBD is considered to have both soothing and anti-inflammatory properties, and there's scientific evidence to support that statement. According to the Bioorganic & Medicinal Chemistry Journal, CBD effectively controls inflammation. The Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology suggests that CBD may have the ability to temporarily turn off the signals that make us feel an itch. The Journal also suggests that when paired with creams and lotions with skin-soothing ingredients, CBD may even relieve an itch. 

Overproduction of sebum is another reason for acne breakouts. According to the Journal of Clinical Investigation, CBD has the potential to regulate sebum production and balance the flow of skin oil, which may help reduce or prevent acne breakouts. 

CBD for Anti-Aging

CBD is derived from plants, so naturally, it has anti-oxidative properties, and due to these anti-oxidative properties, CBD topicals may reduce or prevent signs of aging. CBD, particularly CBD in anti-aging creams, reduces the damage caused by inflammation and counteracts free-radical damage, which visibly diminishes skin issues related to aging, including ruddy skin tone, wrinkles and skin dullness.  

CBD for Sensitive Skin

CBD may exert soothing effects when ingested or applied on the skin. It may also be effective for minimizing issues related to skin sensitivity, including reactivity and redness due to its skin normalizing and calming effects. Regardless of the skin type, environmental stressors can affect anyone but the good news is that the soothing mechanism of CBD may help keep their skin in check. 

Takeaway

The research about the skincare benefits of CBD is relatively new but shows promising initial results. Researchers studying CBD and its benefits agree that we need more scientific and conclusive evidence to be sure about the benefits of CBD.
