How CBD Cream helps your skin

How CBD Cream helps your skin

On the 3rd of February 2021, the European Commission added CBD to their database of cosmetic ingredients. Using CBD in cosmetics has been legal for years, but this update means that its functions are now recognised by the industry. This assures skincare lovers everywhere that CBD creams do indeed help your skin! Serving as an informative reference point for the industry, this decision is sure to spread the word of what topical CBD cream can do for your skin.

CBD Creams are so promising that even top executives from L’Oreal and Goop have left to join cannabis skincare startups. It’s no wonder that investment bank Jeffries has claimed that the CBD beauty market could reach $25 billion globally by 2030! So, exactly how do CBD creams help your skin?

CBD Cream Benefit 1: Anti-Sebum

Sebum is the waxy, oily substance that your skin produces to keep your skin moisturised. It’s the best moisturiser for dry skin, essential for your overall health. However, both an over and underproduction of sebum can cause many issues. These include oily skin, acne, itchiness, irritation and clogged pores. Your pores become clogged when your sebum mixes with pollutants such as dirt and dead skin. Common reasons for changes in your sebum production include hormonal changes, genetics and even stress!

CBD Cream may be able to help with these various issues as it can adjust how your body creates sebum.

It’s great at preventing your skin from producing too much sebum. This makes it the perfect ingredient for the best face cream. Applying topical CBD cream allows you to target specific areas with too much sebum, such as your face. This is especially as an overproduction of sebum has been proven to lead to acne! You could also use a body moisturizer containing CBD on your back, especially if you suffer with back acne.

CBD Cream as an Antioxidant

CBD cream also helps your skin by acting as an antioxidant. Antioxidants act as a layer of protection for your skin against oxidative stress. This is caused by ‘free radicals’, molecules within your body that easily react with others. Free radicals present in your environment might include pollution, cigarette smoke and radiation! These reactions within your skin are thought to be behind human ageing issues such as wrinkles, pigmentation and fine lines. CBD Oil’s antioxidant properties make it the perfect ingredient for anti-aging creams. 

Antioxidants such as CBD protect your body from these stressors, aiding skin dullness and damage. These can really aid your skin’s appearance and health! For example, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, scars and sun damage. This is why so many people use CBD cream for anti-aging effects, as it has so much potential for repairing the skin. 

Skin Conditioning

CBD Skincare has also been shown to be a skin conditioning agent. Skin conditioning means that a substance lubricates, hydrates and protects the skin. This gives a soft, smooth appearance through essential fatty acids which maintain your skin’s health. CBD is very high in fats, acting as a great emollient with regenerative effects. Without skin conditioning, your skin can become dry and wrinkle easier. Conditioning your skin is essential as we constantly shed skin cells throughout the day. 

Humans actually shed around 30,000 to 40,000 old skin cells per day! 

Dropping CBD Oil onto dry skin

Dehydrated skin actually can cause oily skin, as your body produces more to make up for the lack of moisture. Due to its skin conditioning and anti-sebum properties, CBD is perfect for restoring the balance of your skin’s moisture levels. CBD cream can be a great alternative to more damaging ingredients such as silicones which can be heavy and greasy! That’s why our Daily Face Cream and Body Moisturiser are perfect for everyday hydration- vital for skin elasticity and wrinkle prevention. 

The Skin Protector

Lastly, CBD cream has shown to be skin protecting. This is due to its anti-sebum, antioxidant and skin conditioning properties- which combine to produce a layer of protection. It’s far easier to protect your skin than to repair it! SPF alone will not protect you from pollutants in your environment which can damage your skin. This is why it’s important to include another form of skin protection in your everyday routine.

You should always protect your skin by wearing SPF every day, as the sun’s rays even penetrate through windows. The combination of a CBD Face cream with an SPF is just what your skin needs to fight against the damage of your environment.
