CBD has become popular in nearly every aspect of the health field, and skincare is no stranger to the elixir gaining momentum. CBD, also known as cannabidiol, is the non-psychoactive component of cannabis and hemp plants. Best known for its ability to decrease pain and inflammation, CBD has also been recently discovered to have neuroprotective properties due to its high antioxidant content. CBD has many qualities that can contribute to a vibrant life, including adding it to your skin care routine. Here are some of the best uses for CBD to improve or aid your skin health:
CBD for Anti-Aging and Wrinkles
Coming from a plant, CBD is packed with antioxidant properties and is truly an organic compound. When used as a topical, applied directly to the skin, CBD oil products can sometimes visibly improve the look of dull skin.
Aged skin typically becomes thinner, drier and can develop fine lines and wrinkles over time. By counteracting free-radicals (unstable molecules in the body), and reducing inflammation, CBD creams, balms or salves can help to diminish redness, wrinkles, dryness and dullness. CBD may be able to help protect your skin from damage and reduce the signs of aging by working directly with your body’s systems to stabilize those free-radicals and replenish the epidermal surface.
