In recent years we’ve witnessed a substantial rise in the popularity of CBD within healthcare and now skincare. CBD (Cannabidiol) is being used within many skincare treatments and it’s so easy to purchase topical CBD as the results prove it can greatly improve the appearance of your skin. One of the most popular treatments is a CBD Oil Facial, which includes the use of CBD paste on your face in order to reduce ageing, acne and soothe the skin due to it being an anti-inflammatory. 

Here is what CBD can do for you and what benefits it has:

What does CBD do to our skin?

CBD will greatly increase the hydration of your skin and also the levels of moisture. Because of this, it is great at targeting common appearance features that we tend to want to avoid, or remove, such as wrinkles and sagging. It is filled with different vitamins and fatty acids to help improve our health as a whole. 

We are seeing skincare professionals referring us to CBD skin care products a lot more due to their benefits. It is a great natural source for overall health.

Benefits of a CBD facial

  • Can be used by anyone. CBD oil can be used on anyone. No matter what skin-type you have, this oil is a great solution to give you a healthier looking face.
  • CBD is good for acne. CBD is an anti-inflammatory which means it can really help to target acne prone skin. With acne being a worry for a lot of younger people and finding products that can actually work are so few and far between, a simple CBD moisturiser or facial could really help.
  • Targets ageing skin. Ageing skin is something we all suffer with as we get older, some of us later than others. It’s important to keep on top of ageing skin if you want to maintain a younger look, which is why a CBD facial is one of the top recommendations for ageing skin remedies. CBD is an antioxidant and therefore it means it has the ability to fight against wrinkles and other signs of ageing skin.
  • They are safe. One of the most common misconceptions to CBD facials and CBD within the skincare industry as a whole is that because of its relation to cannabis, it must mean it can get you high, but this is simply not the case. CBD lacks the chemical THC, this THC is the component which can make users high, therefore without that, you won’t get high from the facial. Within the CBD paste itself, there are other natural ingredients that can be found in a lot of skin care goods. A lot of research has been conducted to ensure the safety of CBD and also what benefits we can gain from it. The popularity for it is still increasing and it’s reassuring to see a range of celebrities having CBD treatments and then recommending them to the general public.
