Skincare and Bodycare with CBD
Cannabidiol is used for more and more purposes outside its initial use, pain management. In fact, the beauty industry is experiencing a real hype around this ingredient. As a cream, gel, oil, lotion or balm, CBD products can help for some health and beauty issues.
Turns out that CBD, which is derived from the cannabis plant, has a stress-reducing effect and can boost the skin’s health. Want to find out more about how you can optimize your beauty routine with CBD? Then read on.
CBD skincare: it’s all about the ingredients
We all want beautiful, smooth and nourished skin. That’s why there’s a huge selection of skincare products available, all of which promise to give us the skin of our dreams. Cannabidiol has an anti-inflammatory and pain-reducing quality. Together with moisturising hempseed oil, it covers the two fundamental cornerstones of any skincare routine.
That said, before applying, always test a small amount on your skin to see if any allergic reaction happens. CBD is very unlikely to give you an allergy but as a topical, it might be mixed with other ingredients that could cause one. Always look for “cannabidiol” on the ingredient list to ensure that you’re truly getting skincare containing CBD.
But when it comes to a skincare product with CBD, the remaining ingredients are important too. Combined with artificial ingredients, the effect of the cannabidiol in your CBD cream is weakened. This makes it all the more important to take a closer look at the ingredients list.
Skincare products with CBD: what’s in it for your skin?
Let’s start with the basics. Our skin, the body’s largest organ, is made from several building blocks including protein, water, lipids and minerals. The average weight of all the skin on a person’s body is around 3 kg. Its main function is to protect us from germs and other environmental influences. That’s why taking care of your skin is a huge part of your overall healthcare!
Cannabidiol, which has soothing and anti-inflammatory properties, works on the endocannabinoid system, which is distributed throughout the whole body. When applied directly to the skin, skincare products with CBD can reduce acne and painful spots or pimples and help the skin to regenerate itself. A CBD cream can also help to protect your skin from environmental stressors and bacteria.
CBD creams as an ideal component of your skincare routine
Our skin is constantly changing throughout our lives. Using a CBD cream deeply nourishes your skin, and supports your skin’s natural regeneration process. Products that combine CBD with high-quality hempseed oil are especially moisturising through their natural omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. CBD’s pain-reducing and anti-inflammatory effects make this the perfect addition to any skincare routine.
Compared to other skincare products, CBD creams don’t need to make any sacrifices: they work both as a soothing agent for irritated skin and deliver enough moisture at the same time. Last but not least, CBD has an antioxidant effect, which ensures that the skin is protected from free radicals. This prevents premature aging of the skin and promotes cell regeneration.
Topical CBD for minor disturbing health issues
CBD cream, balm or oil can be used to target a specific area that is either hurting like the joints or that is irritated like eczema, psoriasis or acne. What happens is that CBD binds with the CB2 receptors in our skin that don’t reach the bloodstream, that’s why it is best used for localized pain.
CBD is also a great anti-inflammatory and can help to calm skin, and its soothing properties can help diminish breakouts and reduce redness. Recent discoveries show that CBD can diminish extreme sebum oil production, just as help counterbalance different triggers of skin break out thanks to its antibacterial properties.
Using CBD skincare and finding the right product for your skin’s needs
Once you’ve decided to give cannabidiol a try in your skincare regime, only one question remains. Which is the right skincare product with CBD for you? First and foremost, it’s important to go with a high-quality product with a short list of ingredients. The Day Cream by Tom Hemp’s is a great option to go for with its nurturing ingredients such as hempseed oil and aloe vera.
The CBD cream moisturises the skin and, thanks to aloe vera’s anti-inflammatory properties, protects it from external influences. This skincare product with CBD is ideal for daily use, and creates healthy and smooth skin. If you’re looking to treat your whole body with a CBD lotion, then Tom Hemp’s The Body Lotion is a fantastic choice.
The formula contains top-grade ingredients such as shea butter and hempseed oil, which create a true skincare all-rounder when paired with CBD. At Tom Hemp’s we also have an ace up our sleeve for body oil fans. The Body Oil’s unique formula with almond oil, vitamins E and A as well as omega-3 and omega-6 creates supple and smooth skin.
Gentle enough for all skin types, this oil can also be used on dry and irritated skin. The essential oils go more than skin-deep, too: they help to promote circulation and give you a sense of wellbeing. So whichever product you decide to try, the quality of ingredients is the key when it comes to CBD skin care.
CBD Bodycare with Tom Hemp’s
To my pleasant surprise when I tried The Body Lotion, it checked all my boxes: it gave a powerful punch of deep moisturizing and hydration, and my skin felt supple and soft to the touch. After which, I checked the ingredients and recognized some of my preferred components: Cannabis Sativa Oil, Cannabidiol, Shea Butter, Aloe leaf juice and Monoï oil.
Each time I smell Monoï oil, it propels me to the long summers I spent by the sea when I was younger. After a long day at the beach, I would submerge myself in the oil from head to toe. Needless to say, Aloe Vera is also perfect for relieving sun-kissed skin, and of course, Sativa and cannabidiol are potent anti-aging and relaxing ingredients.
Then, I couldn’t help myself to try The Body Oil Ylang Ylang as this is my preferred scent. Ylang-ylang oil is wonderfully fragrant, with a soft, subtle fruity floral fragrance. I asked my boyfriend to spread the oil on my back while giving me a back rub, as this is a zone I rarely can reach to hydrate. Apparently, the oil was absorbed very quickly and left my skin, looking radiant.
The next morning I used The Body Oil Orange as I always feel like citrus wakes you up and energizes you. And last but certainly not least, I used the day cream right after washing my face, and it felt exactly how I like it to be! It is super light and absorbs very quickly, leaving your face hydrated and super soft.
The combination of the Hemp Seed Oil and the Monoï oil is really very powerful. It combats extreme dryness, rashes, sores, purifies the skin with clogged pores or prone to blackheads and CBD also contains GLA, or gamma-linolenic acid, which is a very nutritious form of omega-6 fatty acid.
