cbdMD Botanicals Clearskin Line: How to Keep Your Skin Blemish-Free
Everyone’s skin needs oil – that’s why moisturizers are such big business! But too much of a good thing can bring trouble.
Skin oil, or sebum, is closely linked to clogged pores, which in turn can get inflamed and turn into blemishes. Excess oil can also make skin look overly shiny and do weird things to makeup. At the same time, if you use skin care products that strip out too much oil, your skin will get irritated and crank out even more oil to make up for it.
The cbdMD Clearskin line works as an integrated skincare system to bathe your skin in botanical nourishment, refresh and hydrate, and keep oil production under control. Like our other CBD skin care products, the line uses natural plant extracts and no harsh chemicals.
Why Use CBD With Oily Skin?
While there’s been some interesting early research suggesting that CBD might affect sebum production, the main thing that makes CBD skin care so popular is its calming effect. CBD supports your body’s homeostasis, or internal balance. And CBD absorbed through the skin similarly seems to help keep skin from overreacting to external stresses.
This is crucial because, as noted earlier, even some of the more natural products that help control skin oiliness can cause a bad reaction if you don’t balance them out with more soothing ingredients. So in the Clearskin System, we’ve carefully crafted the products with that balance in mind.
Overview of the cbdMD Clearskin System
Each product plays a different role to care for your skin, but they all work together to help your skin look and feel its best and to protect it from damage. Not only does the Clearskin line pamper your skin with the benefits of CBD, but we take care with our products and make them in a responsible way you can feel good about. All of our Clearskin products are:
For a CBD toner that polishes the skin and refines pores, try the Clearskin Toner. It contains the same powerful broad spectrum CBD formula and turmeric to beautify, refine, and calm your skin, along with two other botanical ingredients for extra oil control.
Clearskin Toner comes in a refreshing spray your skin will love. Spritz it on your face and neck twice a day after washing to keep your complexion bright.
- Willow bark: Used internally, willow bark was the ancient source of salicylic acid, better known as aspirin. On skin, it has a similarly soothing effect, and works to gently cleanse, purify, and refine your pores.
- Witch hazel: Another longtime folk remedy for minor skin irritations, witch hazel is a natural astringent that works hard to keep your oil production normalized.
An important final step for any facial care routine, even if your skin tends to produce extra oil, is to moisturize. This helps to replenish and protect your skin from free radicals, sun exposure, and damage from the environment.
To do this, apply Clearskin Moisture following your cleansing and toner. This CBD lotion also contains our broad spectrum CBD formula, willow bark, and a few other important ingredients.
- Jojoba oil: As we noted in an earlier post on the benefits of jojoba oil on this blog, this oil is deeply moisturizing while also being non-comedogenic, i.e. it does not promote pore-clogging. So naturally we made it the base of our CBD moisturizer for blemish-prone skin.
- Vitamin C: Like turmeric, vitamin C is an antioxidant, but studies have especially noted its ability to aid tissue recovery. If you’re unlucky enough to have skin that’s both oily and aging, this can help prevent the appearance of fine lines.
Clearskin Be Gone
While the three above products are meant to be used as a daily skincare routine (in that order), Clearskin Be Gone lets you target trouble spots with similar ingredients in a concentrated formula. Just apply to problem areas, let the liquid soak in, and leave it on overnight.
In addition to CBD, willow bark, green tea extract, and turmeric, Be Gone includes cedarwood essential oil, which brings added power to calm skin and reduce redness.
