The cannabidiol (CBD) trend began when people started seeing improvements for conditions such as sleep disorders, anxiety and medical conditions such as arthritis.
A new benefit has now come to light and CBD for skin care has become the new craze with beauty experts, however it isn’t just for vanity purposes.
As well as reducing blemishes, treating acne and having anti-aging properties, CBD can treat medical skin conditions such as eczema.
Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Aniston and Gwyneth Paltrow are only a few of the big names who swear by the skincare products.
Here’s how CBD can help you with the most common skin conditions:
CBD and AcneAcne is one of the most common skin conditions for humans, and sufferers are always looking for different cures, many of which just do not work. There is some evidence that CBD can help with acne, however, results may vary in each case.
Acne occurs when hair follicles become blocked. Sebaceous glands are glands attached to hair follicles which lubricate the hair and the skin to stop it drying out which they do by producing an oily substance, sebum.
However, in people with acne, the glands begin to produce too much sebum. The excess sebum then mixes with dead skin cells.
CBD can help to reduce various types of acne due to its ability to adjust how the body creates sebum.
In addition to this, the anti- inflammatory properties of CBD which help with medical conditions such as arthritis, can also help with acne.
The visible inflammation made by these clogged pores can be calmed down by the anti-inflammatory properties in CBD.
Somnio CBD acne serum prevents excess oil production, rebalances the skins micro-flora and also plumps and hydrates the skin. Its natural antibacterial properties help fight pimples and breakouts.
CBD and EczemaEczema is a common skin condition which causes the skin to become itchy, red, dry and cracked.
The exact cause of eczema is unknown; however, it is clear it is not just down to one single thing.
The condition is usually treated with topical creams and ointments, however people suffering from the condition are increasingly turning to natural remedies, such as CBD oil, especially those who prefer to take the more holistic route.
CBD oil has shown to treat the main symptoms of eczema, including dryness and itching.
The national eczema association claim this may be down to CBD having a powerful “anti-itch effect.”
There are receptors in the skin that interact with cannabinoids that could reduce the symptoms and appearance of eczema.
These effects happen through interactions between phytocannabinoids and the bodies endogenous cannabinoid system (ECS).
What is the ECS? The purpose of the ECS is to respond to endogenous cannabinoids produced within the human body.
Scientists have learned that the ECS will also recognize and respond to cannabinoids from external sources, including the phytocannabinoid cannabidiol. (CBD) which is how the benefits take place.
