CBD Beauty Trend


Cannabidiol, often known as CBD, is one of the hot new skincare ingredients that seems to be popping up everywhere. One of the key non-psychoactive qualities of Cannabis, it has numerous beneficial qualities, making it the new kid on the block.

Derived from the cannabis flower, CBD is non-hallucogenic (so won’t get you high), which makes it a safe, non-addictive substance that has powerful anti-inflammatory and soothing properties. Recently legalised in the UK, CBD is everywhere and it’s something I’ve been fascinated about with skincare! Extracted from low THC marijuana seeds, it’s the new thing your skin needs.

Known for soothing or anxiety reducing properties, CBD in skincare is an essential for red or puffy skin as it calms the nervous system, typically reducing inflammation and ensuring skin is as calm and soothed as possible.

CBD can also be used as pain relief and often features as part of massage based products. Topical application to sore muscles or painful parts can be soothed and relieved as it’s absorbed through the skin! I’ve also tried a CBD oral supplement which helped soothe and reduce headaches.

Cannabis is a strong anti-oxidant, which means it has incredible rejuvenating and skin saving properties which is why it’s a key ingredient in serums. Give your skincare routine a boost with a cannabis infused skin serum. Rejuvenate and refresh tired skin with a product like this! If you live in a city or urban area, anti-oxidants are an essential to reduce the impact of pollution upon skin. A key ingredient in anti-ageing products, anti-oxidants are an essential regardless of your age or where you live!

CBD is also said to reduce oil production (although data is limited) - so if you suffer from oily skin, CBD oil may be a solution to try!

Have you tried CBD at all? If you have, what did you think?
