Why You Should Add CBD Cream to Your Beauty Routine

If you’ve heard about the effects of CBD, the number one thing you’ve probably heard is that it can help with anxiety and pain. These are the two most common uses of CBD, but there are many other ways to apply CBD into your daily life. An up and coming trend is to incorporate a topical CBD cream into your beauty routine.

 

Many people have tried CBD beauty creams and loved them, and there’s budding research to indicate it could help with a number of skincare problems. If you’re looking for something to treat skin abnormalities, fight aging, or even refresh you in the morning, here are a few benefits you could see if you use CBD beauty creams daily.

CBD Treats Acne 

Persistent acne targets about 10 percent of the population. It’s worse for some people than others based on hormone levels, genetics, diet, exercise, stress, and other factors. No matter who it targets, it’s a huge source of irritation and embarrassment for the individual.

Over-the-counter acne treatments are rarely fully effective, and it can be difficult to find the source of the acne and treat it from there. Therefore, those plagued with acne will spend thousands on solutions to beat it.

Now, many with persistent acne are turning to CBD. Some studies, including a 2014 review, have considered the way CBD affects sebum production. Researchers have found promising results in CBD reducing the production of oily sebum and minimizing acne.

Other studies, including this 2016 report, have antifungal and antibacterial effects that can prevent dirt and pollutants from entering your pores and causing infections or acne.

CBD is also believed to have anti-inflammatory properties, helping to reduce painful breakouts of cystic acne. When applied daily or as an overnight spot treatment, it could help to bring down inflammation and let the skin heal at a quicker rate.

CBD Diminishes Shiny Skin 

Because CBD is supposed to effectively reduce sebum production, it can also reduce the appearance of shiny, oily skin. If you’re constantly powdering your nose to diminish the glare or feeling uncomfortable with the dampness of your oily skin, CBD creams may be able to help.

If you’re not opposed to it, you can also purchase CBD oils, capsules, or gummies online (as long as the THC content is non-existent or less than 0.3 percent). When taken internally, it’s believed that it can work with your endocannabinoid system to help hormonal levels reach homeostasis. A calmer endocannabinoid system will reduce hormonal breakouts for you.

CBD Chases Away Cancer Agents 

CBD is also believed to have antioxidant properties which are known to chase away free radicals. CBD creams are a great option for after-sun skin creams that can both soothe the burn of a sunburn and help to prevent the development of cancer.

Many people use CBD creams mixed with a high SPF sunscreen to increase the protection of the sunscreen against the sun. The CBD content in the creams might help to prevent burn that could lead to skin cancer even after your sunscreen has worn off.

Again, the research is thin here, but with virtually no side effects to using CBD cream, there’s little risk in trying it. If it could help prevent skin cancer, one of the most common cancers in the world, it’s worth a try!
