As the largest organ of the human body, the skin has numerous tasks to perform. From regulating body heat to sensory perception and metabolism. If we’re not feeling well, it’s noticeable on the outside. Not only in our mood, but also in our appearance.
Not without reason is the skin called the mirror of the soul. Of course, you can cover up a lot with makeup and the like. But why pull off a masquerade when you can fight the causes?
The psyche and the skin are clearly connected. You can find out how here. But this much can be said at this point: The common enemy has a name. And that name is stress!
The solution: CBD. We want to show how CBD affects skin and psyche.
(Not) a good influence? How the psyche affects your skin
When we are afraid, we turn pale. The hair stands up and goose bumps spread. Embarrassment, on the other hand, turns the face red. You see, the inner state of mind knows several faces and carries them outward in many different ways. Without you being able to influence it.
The reason for this is the interaction between the skin and the nervous system. Especially the development of the so-called stress pimples can be explained on this basis. If you have stress in your studies, job or private life, your nerve cells release neuropeptides.
Neuropeptides are messenger substances of the nerve cells and a nightmare for your sebaceous glands. They have a stimulating effect on them and thus promote inflammatory foci for the skin. The result: pimples and impurities.
In addition, neuropeptides slow down wound healing. So once you have to fight stress pimples, it’s hard to get rid of them again. A vicious circle. Unless you know how to help yourself. It’s time for some relaxing me-time!
Treat your body to relaxation with CBD
You want to treat yourself to some time for yourself? Do something good for your body and really relax? A hot bath, chocolate and a good book can help. But it can be even better – with CBD! The cannabidiol of the hemp plant brings you down. No stress, no problems.
CBD interacts with the receptors of the body’s endocannabinoid system. This regulates not only your appetite and pain sensation, but also your mood. If the endocannabinoid system is not in balance, it will let you know uninhibitedly.
So what do you do when nothing goes according to plan and everything seems to be going over your head? Treat yourself to some time out! CBD has a calming and relaxing effect. Through its influence on the endocannabinoid system, your body naturally finds its balance again.
And you know: Happy Me, happy Skin.
Boost cell renewal: this is also the effect of CBD
CBD is an all-rounder. The influences of the cannabidiol on the body are extremely impressive. Besides its calming effect, it also helps stimulate cell renewal in the body, among other things.
How you benefit from it? Think of it as a natural anti-aging remedy. A brisk renewal of the body’s cells says war on wrinkles and makes it hard for skin problems to spread in the first place.
Goodbye dry skin! All skin types benefit from CBD
In winter it is the heating air, in summer the UV radiation. Every day, the skin is exposed to external influences that don’t exactly help its appearance. Dry skin, redness and irritation are usually the result.
Want to leave all that behind and simplify your skincare routine? With caring CBD products, the solution is so close. Because cannabidiol not only has a calming effect on the body and mind. The skin can also enjoy the benefits.
With the external application of CBD oil and CBD cream, you can put an end to redness and inflamed skin once and for all. The products unfold their soothing effect directly at the receptors and provide a pleasant skin feeling.
Especially people with dry and sensitive skin will be thrilled with the CBD Treatment. The skin not only looks better. Symptoms such as itching or dandruff are also alleviated. Win-Win!
How exactly CBD affects the skin has not yet been fully researched. Various studies show that the positive effect of CBD on the skin cannot be dismissed out of hand. However, more detailed background information still needs to be found out.
Can CBD help with skin conditions?
Skin diseases can have various causes. If they are influenced by the psyche, they are referred to as psychosomatic dermatoses. In plain language, this means that a psychological burden such as persistent stress aggravates the affected skin condition or is possibly even the trigger.
What causes skin diseases in individuals is, of course, very individual. The most common stress-related skin diseases include neurodermatitis, psoriasis and herpes.
You don’t have to just accept your skin disease. Try CBD and do your skin some real good. It relieves the symptoms and supports the natural healing process.
Naturally beautiful: CBD in cosmetics
CBD can be used in a variety of ways. For example, CBD drops for sublingual intake under the tongue are popular. Absorbed through the oral mucosa, they strengthen the defense system from the inside and outside.
Also common are capsules and sweets that you take orally. This method of ingestion is convenient, but has a catch: the low bioavailability. Since the active ingredient must first pass through the gastrointestinal tract, a large part of it is lost.
If you absorb CBD through the skin, the story is different. The active ingredient is absorbed by the skin and can quickly unfold its positive properties. CBD oil is considered particularly effective.
The product is based on hemp seed oil. If you massage the oil into your skin in circular movements, a pleasant skin feeling is quickly noticeable. CBD oil moisturizes and provides soft, elastic skin.
For dry skin, a combination with almond oil as found in our The Body Oil Orange is recommended. The vitamins A and E contained relax the skin and make it radiant.
CBD Lotion is an excellent addition to your daily beauty routine. It is also based on hemp seed oil and protects your skin from moisture loss. Through external application, the CBD on the skin stimulates the receptors of the endocannabinoid system. The skin’s resistance is strengthened.
CBD lotions usually contain other ingredients that you can use to pamper your skin. Aloe vera and shea butter, as they are also found in our The Body Lotion, care for and protect at the same time.
CBD bath balls
Don’t feel like actively creaming? CBD bath balls do the work for you. So you can fully focus on your relaxation. The combination of hemp seed oil and Cannabis Sativa leaf extract in the bath water ensures pleasant self-care time and velvety soft skin.
Simply switch off, forget the stress and enjoy! Aromas such as lavender or citrus have an additional effect and provide a holistic relaxation of body and mind.
Conclusion: Perfect skin glows from within
Yes, CBD has a positive effect on your skin. Especially for dry and sensitive skin, CBD products can work wonders. They soothe irritated skin, reduce redness and support natural cell renewal.
However, you must not forget that skin problems such as pimples and irritations usually do not occur without a reason. Their cause usually lies inside the body. This can be clogged pores due to excessive sebum production. Or your body sends you a clear signal.
If your body is in an imbalance, it cannot fool your psyche in this respect. So-called stress pimples spread or already existing skin diseases worsen.
In this case, only one thing helps: listen to your own body and shift down a gear. CBD can help you do that. Because we at Tom Hemp’s know that beauty comes from within and without.
