5 Ways CBD Benefits Your Skin

Does CBD Benefit your skin?

CBD, a non-psychoactive compound derived from the cannabis plant(1), is legal in all 50 US states if it is derived from hemp (because hemp is legal). Mounting research has shown that CBD could have an abundance of therapeutic benefits, including for the skin. Here are five ways CBD has a positive impact on your skin.

The benefits of CBD for skin can be found regardless of if you consume it topically directly in skincare products, orally, or through vaping or inhalation.

CBD Can Have Anti-Aging Effects

The impact of aging on skin is very noticeable. We get wrinkles, our skin dulls, and it can even get a reddish tone. In the human quest to stay young-looking as long as possible, an uncountable number of anti-aging skincare products are on the market. Some of them now have CBD in them, and for good reason.

CBD does wonders for keeping skin healthy and hydrated. It also has antioxidant properties(2) that help to reduce visible aging signs on skin. CBD also contains two fatty acids: Omega 3 and Omega 6. They stimulate collagen production to prevent the loss of water.

CBD Can Fight Acne

The cause of acne is dirt, dead skin cells, excess oil, or bacteria getting clogged in your pores. That blockage causes P. acnes, which lives in hair follicles and multiplies. It then inflames your skin and ultimately leads to red skin blemishes, or acne.

CBD may help to fight acne(3) because it targets the cells that trigger it. CBD can also reduce oil production and has anti-inflammatory properties as well, indirectly preventing and easing acne.

Another great aspect of CBD for treating acne is that it only targets problematic cells. Standard acne medication does not have that targeting ability.

CBD Can Be Used To Help Treat Skin Disorders

Because of CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties, it may help treat skin disorders(4) like eczema and psoriasis. The direct effects of CBD on these conditions include a reduction in irritation, redness, and pain.

CBD is also a great natural moisturizer because of its Vitamin E content, meaning it helps in relieving symptoms of skin disorders. Thanks to the lack of serious side effects, CBD is to many people a much more attractive option than traditional medication prescribed for skin conditions.

CBD Soothes Dry Or Sensitive Skin

Dry skin, whether it’s chronic or occasional, is uncomfortable and sometimes even painful. CBD, a natural moisturizer, is a perfect solution for dry and sensitive skin, preventing and easing peeling, cracks, and rough areas. This is not only due to its ability to moisturize but also from its anti-inflammatory effects.

CBD also can help to regulate your skin’s oil production, preventing both the overproduction and underproduction of oil. How CBD regulates your skin’s natural oil production depends on the signals sent in the body.

CBD Protects Against UV Radiation

Using CBD topically provides UV protection(5). UV rays that come from the sun are harmful and can cause damage to the skin. After much research in CBD’s effectiveness in protecting the skin against a broad spectrum of UV rays, CBD is now a common base in many sunscreens.
