How can CBD help my skin?

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 Acne

Acne 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. 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.

Somnio CBD acne serum contains ingredients such as Psycosaccharide ACG which then prevents excess oil production, rebalances the skins micro-flora and also plumps and hydrates the skin. Its natural antibacterial properties using ingredients such as witch hazel and tea tree help fight pimples and breakouts. This can help to reduce various types of acne due to its ability to adjust how the body creates sebum.

 CBD and Anti-Aging, Anti-Wrinkle

The aging process is something we all will go through, and can’t prevent, however we can slow down the visible process it has on our skin such as wrinkles and dullness.

Ingredients in the Somnio anti-ageing, anti-wrinkle moisturiser work together to restore the skin's moisture, fill in wrinkles and reduce the natural appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Somnio Anti Age, Anti Wrinkle cream contains Jojoba Oil which is rich in antioxidants and iodine which has a similar structure to sebum and as a result helps to regulate sebum production.

Hylauronic acid is another key ingredient in Somnio anti-aging, anti-wrinkle cream as it hydrates the skin and reduces redness and dermatitis. The use of hyaluronic acid can help the skins own production of hyaluronic acid which can then improve the skins elasticity.

The combination of ingredients in the anti-age anti-wrinkle moisturiser help to revive the skin and give it a more youthful appearance, whilst also strengthening the overall quality of the skin.

CBD For Your Everyday Skincare Regime

Beyond using CBD products to combat skin conditions, CBD is becoming part of people’s everyday skincare routines.

If all the above wasn’t enough, CBD can also reduce the appearance of any blemishes, when applied topically, due to its beneficial effect on skin cells and the Vitamin E it contains.

With The amount of benefits from regularly using a CBD skin care product such as clear skin, preventing breakouts, and generally brightening, there’s no wonder more and more people are introducing it as part of their everyday skin care routine.
