Why CBD for the Skin?

Apr 30, 2021 Why CBD for the Skin?

Yes, CBD is a wonderful natural compound to add to your daily routine to help you feel better everyday. But, did you know? Not all CBD products are ingested! You can also apply CBD right to your skin to address troubled areas and provide much needed nourishment.

A growing number of people have come to rely on CBD skin care products. But for those who are new to the hemp-derived compound, they can also be a great way to get started with a daily CBD routine. 

In this article, you’ll learn why so many people are turning to CBD skincare and CBD topical products, how CBD works on the skin, different ways to incorporate CBD into your skincare routine, as well as the types of CBD skin care products that are available.

Why CBD for the Skin?

Before diving into the benefits of CBD for your skin, let’s briefly review CBD and why it’s such a highly sought-after compound these days. CBD, short for cannabidiol, is one of the more than 100 all-natural cannabinoids that are found in hemp plants. 

CBD has become popular as a supplement in recent years because of its natural balance-promoting properties that can encourage more optimal functioning. Sharing a similar molecular structure to your body’s own cannabinoids, CBD is able to interact with and support your endocannabinoid system, an important signaling network responsible for keeping a long list of your body’s functions balanced and running optimally. This positive influence that CBD has on your endocannabinoid system also plays a role in naturally promoting the health and functioning of your skin. 

The skin is the largest organ of our bodies, covering a total area of roughly 2 square meters, and it’s the only organ that comes into contact with the rest of the world. You can thank your skin for protecting you from the elements and microbes, helping regulate your body temperature, and allowing you to sense touch, heat, and cold. 

Surely, your skin only deserves the best care!

That’s where CBD comes in. CBD’s support of the endocannabinoid system naturally encourages its efforts to keep your skin’s functions operating at their peak. Cosmetically, a better operating endocannabinoid system also leads to skin that’s protected and rejuvenated, and a complexion that is smoother and more lively.

How CBD Works on the Skin

It’s no surprise that CBD skin care products have grown in popularity in recent years, with the cannabinoid making its way into everything from facial moisturizers to body salves, and even hand sanitizers. But, what makes these types of topical CBD products so attractive?

While ingesting CBD supports the whole body, a CBD topical or skincare product allows you to target CBD right to where you need it! CBD salves and other skincare products are designed to be applied directly to your skin, and sometimes your hair.

When you apply CBD to your skin, the compound diffuses directly through the skin's epidermis and pores. It then interacts with cannabinoid receptors near your skin’s surface. It’s this interaction between CBD and the cannabinoid receptors on the skin’s sensory nerve fibres and subcutaneous tissue that stimulates your endocannabinoid system.

This is why CBD skincare or CBD topical products are unique to other types of CBD products available. They are made for you to target the balance-promoting benefits of CBD to a specific area.

Do you have troubled skin areas? The skincare benefits of CBD can be a natural solution for healthy and youthful looking skin. Feeling a little tense after a long, physically-strenuous day? CBD’s natural balancing properties also can help revitalize your overworked muscles and joints.

These topical CBD skincare products are best used daily, or even throughout the day whenever you feel the need to soothe or nourish your skin.
