Despite the fact that CBD has been well known and used for 80 years, there is still no shortage of misconceptions about cannabidiol. For example, CBD oil is often confused with the psychoactive cannabinoid tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). This is a myth. In fact, hemp plants contain over a hundred different cannabinoids. CBD is just one of them. It does not have a psychoactive effect and stands out for its good properties, which are used for beauty and, in some cases, treatment purposes. CBD oil is extracted from fibrous hemp and is increasingly used in cosmetic products. What problems do CBD cosmetics solve?
4 Aesthetic problems that can be solved with the help of cannabidiol:
1. Acne (pimples).
Acne is the most common, noticeable and really unpleasant chronic skin disorder that affects not only teenagers but also the elderly. The appearance of acne can be caused by changes in the hormonal system, heredity and lifestyle: improper diet, disturbed sleep, stress. Appearing acne is not only an aesthetic problem. It causes physical and psychological discomfort. Acne is often painful, can become inflamed, lead to infection and leave non-healing scars on the face. Many people with acne develop severe breakouts. Their self-esteem and emotional state suffer.
If you are dealing with acne, it is worth trying CBD oils, the benefits of which have been known for a long time in the fight against acne. 2014 A scientific study conducted in the United States shows that with regular use of CBD oil, the condition of the skin improves significantly. This product helps to regulate the skin's sebum (this is the oil naturally produced by the skin, an excess of which leads to the appearance of acne). It also provides acne-damaged skin with important anti-inflammatory, antibacterial properties. In this way, the appearance of acne is effectively stopped. For this reason, we can conclude that CBD oil and CBD cosmetics help people with acne problems.
In order to improve the condition of the skin, we recommend trying Hempo full-spectrum CBD oil or other CBD cosmetics from a reliable manufacturer.
2. Dry, itchy skin.
Skin dryness, sensitivity, itching warn of irritation. Often this condition occurs in the cold season, at the beginning of the heating season: then the air dries out significantly, which also affects the sensitive skin of the face, which loses moisture more quickly. Another common cause of dryness and itching is skin diseases, such as atopic dermatitis, eczema, and psoriasis (psoriasis).
2019 A study conducted by US scientists l notes that the use of CBD oil (cbd oil) in cosmetics helps relieve the aforementioned sensations - dryness, itching , general facial skin irritation. This effect is due to the CBD extract and its anti-inflammatory properties and the linolenic acid in the composition, which soothes irritated skin. CBD hemp oil can also help relieve the symptoms of eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis.
Even if you do not experience severe itching or dryness, pollution and other factors of the modern environment are harmful to all skin types. Since CBD oil has soothing, anti-irritation properties, CBD cosmetics are very valuable as a preventive measure, especially for people with naturally more sensitive skin.
3. CBD cosmetics and signs of skin aging.
Over the years, our facial skin inevitably changes. The first wrinkles are formed at a very early age - after entering the thirties. Heredity, a stressful lifestyle and an unbalanced diet can lead to the appearance of wrinkles, skin pigmentation and signs of fatigue.
If you notice that the skin loses elasticity, looks gray, it should be enriched with antioxidants. These are substances that moisturize the skin, stop the aging process, stimulate the production of natural collagen, and reduce age-related pigmentation spots. It has been found that natural CBD oil contains very valuable antioxidants. Thus, CBD oil and CBD cosmetics not only relieve inflammation, but also help to nurture the skin of the face, neck, décolleté, and visually reduce wrinkles. Many people who have tried CBD cosmetics notice that after using it, the skin looks more elastic, more youthful, and signs of fatigue are reduced.
4. Falling hair.
Have you long dreamed of longer, waist-length hair or a thicker hairstyle, but your hair is weak and thinning? Their weakness can be caused by various reasons - genetics, stress, lack of sleep, imbalance of the hormonal system, as well as damage due to improper care: insufficient hair moisturizing, too frequent hair straightening or drying.
If you notice intense hair loss, they break, they have lost their luster, natural CBD oil can help. Its use stimulates hair follicles, improves blood circulation and promotes hair growth. These become noticeably thicker, denser and shiny. As mentioned, CBD hemp oil has valuable anti-inflammatory properties, so it can also help suppress scalp skin problems: dryness, flaking, symptoms of atopic dermatitis.
How to use hemp extract (CBD)?
When using any product containing cannabidiol, it is important to follow the label and package instructions. Cosmetically, hemp extract should be applied directly to clean skin (in case you want to strengthen your hair, massage the oil into your scalp). When using CBD-containing products for the first time, it is recommended to start with the lowest recommended dose. After learning how the skin and the whole body reacts to CBD, the amount used can be gradually increased if necessary.
Please note that CBD oil should be stored in a cool and dark place at a temperature not exceeding 25C. In order to achieve an effective and safe result, these products cannot be stored in a place where the package would reach daylight or direct sunlight: this could negatively affect the CBD active ingredients.
Tips to help you choose quality CBD oil
The cosmetic market is rapidly expanding with CBD cosmetics and CBD products for skin care. However, in order to purchase a truly natural, quality product, it is necessary to consider several important factors, which we present below.
- Study the ingredient list carefully. Make sure it says cannabidiol or CBD. Sometimes these names are replaced by other terms in the ingredients list (for example, hemp seed oil or hemp extract). These are not natural CBD cannabinoid equivalent ingredients, so the product may not give you the expected result.
- Make sure the cannabidiol in the product is full spectrum, as this type of CBD extract has the best effects.
- Certified CBD cosmetics and other CBD-containing cosmetic products are labeled with the total cannabidiol content in milligrams. This is an important indicator that allows us to assess the amount of cannabidiol in a cosmetic product.
- If you would like to know more additional information before purchasing the product, please contact the representatives of the specific brand. Check to see if they provide third-party certification evidence of the purity and exact amount of CBD contained in the product. This way you can be even more sure that you are getting what is on the label.
The benefits of hemp extract and CBD cosmetics are obvious - it is a nature- and human-friendly choice for face, skin and hair care. Cannabidiol is a safe, scientifically researched and tested substance that is harmless even to a sensitive body.
