In the recent years, we’ve seen interest in CBD increase greatly, especially since the 2018 Agricultural Improvement Act was passed. CBD (cannabidiol) is one of the two most common active ingredients in cannabis, with the other being THC. CBD does not induce a high by itself, unlike THC, which is a psychoactive compound.
The health benefits of CBD have made the compound popular in many industries, the beauty industry among them. CBD skincare products have as a result grown in popularity, with companies producing everything from CBD lotions and soaps to oils.
If you’re curious about the products and would like to try them, below are a few reasons why you should.
Potential as a skin cancer treatment
While most research on the compound focuses on its ability to relieve stress, recent research has found that CBD may be useful in the treatment of skin cancer (melanoma). The study, conducted by researchers from the York College of Pennsylvania, found that CBD could potentially hinder cancer cell development.
It should be noted that the assertion remains inconclusive, with researchers currently focused on examining more of the compound’s effects on melanoma.
May help smooth skin
Using a skincare product with CBD may help one achieve glowing and satin-smooth skin. In addition to having antioxidant properties, CBD also possesses anti-inflammatory properties, which can assist in the reduction of redness and swelling.
Some skincare products infused with CBD also improve itchy and dry skin, with various companies also introducing to the market formulations that can prevent psoriasis, acne and eczema.
If you want glowing skin, consider the use of CBD moisturizing products, especially if you have dry skin or your skin is prone to dryness. It helps that you can choose from oils, serums and lotions that come in a variety of scents, with most popular CBD skincare brands manufacturing their products from 100% organic material.
Could provide an anti-aging ingredient
CBD is known to provide relief from anxiety, chronic pain and stress. In addition to this, when it is infused in skincare products, it can also help decrease the onset of wrinkles and delay aging.
Skin aging is usually accelerated by free radical production, which damages healthy skin cells. CBD can help with this as it contains antioxidants that help counter the effects of free radicals and protect healthy skin cells from them. This is in addition to eliminating toxins from the skin. If you’re interested in looking younger, consider using facial creams and oils that are infused with antioxidants and CBD.
