With the pass of the 2018 Farm Bill and recent hemp studies coming to light, we are seeing a huge shift towards CBD. Did you know CBD can be used topically? Yeah, not only can we ingest it to help heal our inner-selves, but we can, also, use it to heal our outside imperfections, too!
CBD’s top attributes include its anti-inflammatory and analgesic (pain-killing) properties. Scientists are finding evidence that it can treat things like acne, dry skin, psoriasis, and eczema.
“Acne is a pain in the ass to treat because of its many components: blocked pores, excess sebum, inflammation, and proliferation of bacteria. A 2014 study found that CBD helps suppress breakouts by regulating oil production by sebaceous glands.” Usually, those with acne-prone skin use drugs like Accutane or an over-the-counter treatment containing an acid like benzoyl peroxide. These treatments have the usual process of “it gets worse before it gets better,” leaving the skin red and dry. I don’t know about you, but I truly hate that process. I do have acne and I can say that I truly hate having to accept a week or two of horrible, dry skin full of break-outs before it’s supposed to get better. It doesn’t always. Then with the pain-killing abilities, putting CBD on the affected area has shown to reduce swelling, pain, and redness.
So why use those treatments if there is a more effective, natural way to cure it? High-end beauty companies are seeing the benefits and now incorporating them into their products. Products such as facial oil, moisturizer, acne treatments, lip balms, etc. Therefore, we’re seeing the impact of hemp and CBD and why everyone wants some!
