What Adding CBD Skincare to Your Routine Can Do for You

What Adding CBD Skincare to Your Routine Can Do for You

People often pay more attention to what they put in their bodies than what they put on their skin. But did you know the same antioxidants that doctors encourage you to add to your diet can be absorbed through your skin for the same benefits?

cbdMD’s CBD skin care products are cruelty-free, paraben-free, non-GMO, and gluten-free, all while offering an amazing number of benefits at every stage of your skin care process. Packed with an amazing array of vitamins, oils, and hyaluronic acid, our Clearskin and Botanicals lines can keep your skin looking fresh and youthful.

CBD Skin Care is Just as Important as Oral CBD

Nowadays, consumers are beginning to become aware of the ingredients included in their skin care products and how those ingredients interact with their bodies. Once you know what’s in your CBD skin care you can determine the best CBD skin care benefits for your needs.

Since CBD can be easily infused into a multitude of products including lotions, oils, and cosmetics, there are a number of reasons to incorporate CBD skin care into your daily routine. The benefits and reasons for using topical CBD and CBD skin care are just as vast as the benefits of using oral CBD.

How Does Topical CBD Work?

When applied to the skin, CBD is absorbed through the pores, providing a localized effect. However, it doesn’t penetrate your skin deep enough to enter your bloodstream.

Once absorbed through the skin, CBD supports our endocannabinoid system (ECS) in maintaining homeostasis by working with a specific set of cannabinoid receptors (CB2 receptors) inside the skin.

This ability to provide a localized effect makes CBD skin care useful for targeted areas of concern – keeping the benefits contained to a specific area. Many CBD skin care products can help protect, repair, soothe, and moisturize your skin, which is why beauty products have begun to incorporate CBD into their formulas.

Topical CBD vs. Oral CBD

While CBD interacts with the inside of your body when taken orally, hemp-based CBD skin care products are developed to immediately affect targeted areas. Unlike oral CBD, CBD topicals have a low bioavailability – meaning they won’t penetrate your skin and enter your bloodstream, no matter how much you apply to a specific area.

Although cbdMD’s topicals have low bioavailability, there are products on the market with high bioavailability for consumers that require it. This means they keep CBD from metabolizing or breaking down before it reaches the bloodstream.

Our topicals, on the other hand, don’t need to enter the bloodstream because they’re developed to bind and stimulate the CB2 receptors that lie within your skin.

Conversely, oral CBD requires the cannabinoid compounds to interact with the ECS through the bloodstream by binding with CB2 receptors in the central and peripheral nervous systems. While topical CBD affects targeted areas almost immediately, oral CBD takes longer to reach your system but the effect lasts longer.

CBD Skin Care Benefits

When focusing on their skin care routine, most people concentrate their efforts on moisturizers, oils, and lotions. While these are incredibly important stages of the process, most forget that cleansing and exfoliating can also impact your skin’s health.

Believe it or not, CBD is one of the best ingredients for keeping your skin looking young, plump, and moisturized. In combination with multiple healthy oils, vitamins, antioxidants, and essential oils, cbdMD’s Clearskin and Botanicals lines are specially formulated to take care of your skin at every step.

We’ve also included hyaluronic acid as an active ingredient in a few key products to lock in moisture right where you need it most.

Don’t Forget Your Cleansers and CBD Exfoliators

There are a number of factors that affect the quality of your skin, from the climate you live in to any make-up you wear to how often you wash your face. Oh, and the quality of your face cleansers and exfoliants.

It’s the cleanser’s job to attract the impurities, dirt, and oil on your skin so that they wash from your face with the last of the suds. The exfoliator focuses on removing dead skin cells and dirt so that your pores stay clear. So what makes a good cleanser and exfoliator?

A good cleanser cleans your skin and pores of dirt and excess oils while leaving the right amount of natural oils to protect the surface of your skin. If it were to strip away all oils, your skin would be left feeling tight, dry, and irritated. This often leads your skin to produce more oils than necessary in order to combat your overly dry skin.

A good exfoliator removes dirt and dead skin cells, leaving your skin feeling soft and moisturized, but most importantly – clean. So what component can calm and moisturize your skin while allowing the rest of the ingredients in your exfoliator to do their job? That’s precisely where CBD comes in. By interacting with the CB2 receptors in your skin, CBD is able to prevent irritations while calming and moisturizing your skin.

We have what you need. Our CBD Exfoliating Facial Cleanser is the perfect addition to your weekly skin care routine. Exchanging it for your normal cleanser once or twice a week will scrub and remove any impurities to leave your skin glowing.

Hyaluronic acid.

The Importance of Hyaluronic Acid in Your CBD Facial Products

While you might know that your natural facial oils diminish as you age, what you might not know is that that very same oil is essential for healthy skin. Your skin also naturally produces hyaluronic acid, which is responsible for retaining the moisture in your skin – another thing that drops off as you age.

Did you know that hyaluronic acid can absorb up to 1,000 times its weight in water? It’s not just a coincidence that wrinkles begin to appear at close to the same rate that your hyaluronic acid production decreases: these two phenomena are actually linked. In fact, hyaluronic acid is responsible for keeping moisture at the surface of your skin, reducing wrinkles and keeping skin looking plump and youthful.

Need that extra hyaluronic boost in your life? Try dabbing a few drops of our Fountain of Youth Dynamic Serum on your face right after your normal wash routine. You can also bring some additional moisture to the skin around your lips and eyes with Adore me Eye & Lip Cream.
