The benefits of CBD skincare and beauty products
Typically people use CBD to help ease stress, aches and pains, and promote a restful night’s rest. But, because of its versatility, there are also a number of ways to use CBD for skincare.
CBD works in many ways to help improve skin condition and reduce inflammation, which helps treat easily – irritated, sensitive skin symptoms from conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, acne and reduce rosacea flare-ups. And because of its antioxidant properties, it also helps in managing ageing and dry skin.
The many ways in which CBD cares for your skin
CBD may have antioxidant effects, which is not surprising given the fact that it comes from a plant, and these antioxidants are one of the ways that topical use can help reduce outward signs of ageing.
CBD contains anti-inflammatory qualities which is known to help lessen reddish skin by diminishing the appearance of inflammation. Topical CBD skin care products, such as creams, masks, oils, and lotions, interact with our ECS receptors. So they help in assisting in the treatment of symptoms from eczema, rosacea and acne and soothing inflamed skin.
CBD infused oils are recognised for their powerful calming qualities. This relaxing action can help keep your skin looking good every day, no matter what the environment has to offer or the daily stresses you face.
Along with using CBD as part of your daily skincare routine, you can also use CBD to help keep your nails looking good. By adding a few drops of CBD oil to where your nail meets your skin and rubbing it in the tops of dry or cracked nails, not only will it help moisturise the area, keeping it looking fresh, it can also help to strengthen your nails and aid in healthy regrowth.
Incorporating a CBD-infused beauty product into your daily routine will help nourish the skin and healthy, glowing skin all year round.
Are CBD products safe for our skin?
The current research and the anecdotal evidence we’ve received from our customers here at Found would suggest that there’s likely little harm that can come from applying a CBD beauty product to your skin. However, you should never forget that CBD is not a one-size-fits-all solution and is not a cure-all for any skin condition, so the impact on making your skin look and feel different will vary from person to person.
As a company, we at Found pride ourselves on ensuring our products come up to high compliance standards. All of our products have undergone rigorous testing from third-party labs to ensure they do not contain THC or other banned cannabinoids in Hong Kong.
But like with any skincare product, one should first apply a small amount onto your hand or arm to first ensure there is no adverse reaction. If you experience any form of skin irritation, a rash, or an allergic reaction from using CBD infused skin care products, you should consult a dermatologist.
