A lot of skin issues today are caused from inflammation. Due to its strong anti-inflammatory effects many people are now turning to CBD for their skin care. Rachel Lapidos of Well and Good, reports on the increased use of CBD for healthy skin and cites an important study that backs it’s anti-inflammatory powers.
This study breaks down CBD and skin-health. The endocannabinoid system in our body is responsible for maintaining homeostasis in our bodies. By interacting with many of our bodies systems it detects and regulates pain and inflammation, hunger, mood, memory, and more. Many things effect our endocannabinoid system causing it to become imbalanced or inactive. Ingesting and/or applying CBD restores balance to this system. The healing and balancing effects of CBD on the skin are numerous. CBD topicals ease inflammation, reduces acne, prevents wrinkles, and alleviates dry skin. CBD is suited for all skin types and will not clog pores. Its anti-inflammatory properties soothe skin of soreness, itchiness, and puffiness while gently moisturizing, making CBD a perfect addition into your self-care rituals.
