Why Are There Different Types of Moisturizing Cream?
When you are searching for skin cream options you are likely to see a wide variety of skincare creams, oils, serums, and specialized masks. Skincare creams serve several purposes for the skin:
- Provide moisture
- Provide protection
- Provide skin-nourishing and reparative properties
- Support your skin’s natural cell turnover cycle
- Help to balance the moisture levels and pH of your skin
- Help to prevent or lessen the signs of wear and aging on your skin
Your skin has several functions. During the day your skin protects your body from free radicals, rays from the sun, and the weather. All of this hard work is then shifted over to repair work as you turn in for the night. This is why there are different formulations of skincare creams for daytime and for the night.
Other skincare products focus on targeted objectives like collagen production, balancing, smoothing, or helping combat the signs of aging.
CBD creams focus on many of these, but overall they are designed to protect your skin during the day, provide your skin with the moisture it needs each day, and then deliver maximum beneficial moisture at night while your skin works to repair daily damage. CBD works as a moisturizer for your skin but also helps to deliver CBD for other benefits as the CBD molecules interact with receptors located in your skin.
CBD benefits are highly sought after and make CBD creams a popular choice among skin care options.
Different Skin Care Creams Serve Different Purposes
Because the skin all over your body differs in texture and need, there are different creams to meet these needs. Usually, there are five different types of skincare moisturizing creams:
- Facial creams for daytime
- Body creams
- Eye and lip creams
- Overnight creams for the face called “night creams”
- Hand and foot creams for rough areas of the skin
Your Body’s Skin Has Differing Textures & Needs
All of your skin is made up of skin cells that work to protect you during the day and repair at night. But the skin cells in different areas of your body do have different characteristics, which means they need specialized care designed for that part of your body.
Your body’s skin has three distinct areas:
The skin cells on your face are much smaller than the skin cells on the rest of your body. Because these cells are smaller, your facial products need to be formulated with smaller particles and with a lighter weight. This helps to accommodate the wearing of makeup and other products on the face as well. Because these smaller facial skin cells are usually more sensitive than other skin cells, facial moisturizing creams also must be more delicate and calming.
Other concerns are usually more prominent on the face, such as uneven textures or coloring, excess pore size and sebum production, and an increased need for protection from free radicals in the environment and from the sun.
Eye and Lip Skin
The skin around your eyes and lips is even more thin and delicate. These areas of skin also move a lot more than other areas of the face and may be the first areas to show signs of aging and fine lines. Because the skin is much thinner, has an increased need for reparative work, and is more sensitive than the rest of your face, these areas require the lightest-weight moisturizer with the most concentrated ingredients and targeted care. These formulas come in variable weights but are usually used quite sparingly due to the higher concentrations of the ingredients.
The skin on your body can vary in different areas, from smooth and thinner areas on the inner folds of your elbows, knees, and armpits to the rougher, thicker skin of your limbs, to the possibly calloused and tough areas of your hands, feet, elbows, and knees. This is a wide range of needs for your skin. A good body cream is foundational, but you may also find hand creams, heel creams, and other specialty creams for problem areas of your skin.
Why Does Your Skin Even Need a Moisturizer?
Skin moisturizers help to protect the skin as well as support your skin’s natural abilities to repair itself. During the day, your skin loses moisture in a multitude of ways: rubbing or by other physical means, cosmetics that could draw moisture from the skin, the environment and weather to which your skin is exposed, and also as a result of the natural aging process. As we age our skins are less able to retain moisture and experience a drop in collagen production which is a vital protein in the skin. Collagen gives your skin that fresh plump healthy glow.
What happens to your skin when moisture is lost? When the outermost layer of your skin, the stratum corneum, loses moisture, a few things happen within your skin cells.
- The natural balance of the skin is affected.
- The natural process of cell turnover is affected: Cells die off faster, but do so in clumps and may not slough away properly.
- Cells appear duller and give your skin that “tired” look.
Of course, your skin is equipped to produce its own moisture just fine, but thanks to all the modern elements and conditions your skin is exposed to each day, this process can be hindered. Providing a gentle source of hydration for your skin is simply supporting those natural processes and giving your skin a little extra help. If you have fairly normal skin, you may not feel it is necessary – until you consider the free radicals and other harmful things your skin faces each day.
Yes, even normal skin, and even more oil-rich skin types, need moisture.
Can CBD Skin Care Moisturizers Benefit Everyone?
The quick and solid answer is yes, absolutely. All skin types benefit from an effective, non-clogging moisturizer, providing protection and hydration.
Young skin: Youthful skin doesn’t need a whole lot, but even these fresh-faced skin types face free radicals in the environment, the rays of the sun, and weather conditions, and so could use protection. The more your skin goes through all of those harmful effects, the more the aging process can accelerate. Protect that lovely young skin with a clean beauty moisturizer each day and a bit of night cream at night.
Aging or mature skin: Mature skin isn’t always dry, but it tends to be. Regardless, mature skin has slower cell turnover and slower regeneration of cells. Hydration is a must, as is gentle care for the whole body, especially around the eyes, mouth, face, and hands. Mature skin is beginning to show those fine lines and lose the plump collagen it once had, but with a supportive hydration routine, even mature skins can have a lovely glow.
Skin with dryness or uneven textures: Dry skin types certainly need the support of a quality moisturizer. A great CBD cream can help to balance the skin, provide that boost of hydration that dry skin types need, and help the skin to feel more comfortable and smooth. It’s OK to layer the types of CBD skin creams for all that nourishing hydration your skin craves.
Skin that produces more oil: Believe it or not, even those skin types that produce more sebum, the skin’s natural emollient, need hydration. In fact, if your skin receives no hydration from a good moisturizer, the skin may even produce more sebum. Using a lightweight CBD moisturizer during the day and a CBD night cream can help to balance the skin.
Skin that is sensitive to beauty products: Because many people have skin that is sensitive to certain ingredients and chemicals, we have opted to use natural ingredients that are calming for the skin. Our enriched CBD cream formulations are perfect even for these sensitive skin types.
What Does CBD Do for Your Skin?
We mentioned before that CBD acts both as a moisturizer but also delivers topical CBD via the CBD receptors of your skin. These receptors are part of a biological system of your body called the endocannabinoid system, a system present in mammals.
CBD creams take advantage of both of these beneficial properties of CBD and use CBD and other cannabinoids and terpenes to nourish the skin with moisture while delivering supportive CBD care to your body. Some of the CBD is processed through the skin and can provide some other overall benefits.
CBD nourishes the skin with pampering moisture but does so without clogging the pores and preventing the skin from performing its duties. Many skincare creams on the market can’t say this. When you feel as if you are doing the best for your skin, you could essentially be slathering on a layer that “seals” the skin and prevents the skin cells from “breathing,” as some like to call it, which can lead to poor skin health. Because CBD is able to provide skin support, affordably, gently, and without causing more harm than good (as some of the aforementioned products can) it is an attractive option for those who seek cleaner, more beneficial skin care.
Why Are cbdMD Botanicals the Best CBD Cream Options?
Speaking of more beneficial skin care, cbdMD – a highly acclaimed and well-respected provider of CBD products and education – has a developing line of Botanicals skin care products. This Botanicals line is causing quite a stir for fans of CBD.

We’ve been trying, using, and loving what CBD products do for our overall wellness when taken orally or used in a pain cream, but to have this available in our beauty products makes a complete package of care.
Feeling good is a large part of our wellness plans, but for most people looking our best and having our skin feel its best is super important. Many people have a huge graveyard of beauty products and skincare products to prove this fact. It’s time to ditch the product graveyard, toss out the old, and bring in the new – CBD skincare.
Here’s what sets our CBD creams apart from the competition:
- Superior Broad Spectrum hemp extract made with CBD and other cannabinoids
