Happy 4/20! With the scent of spring in the air, you may also catch a whiff of the calm and relaxing aroma of cannabis in the breeze, as people celebrate the ceremonious plant and its numerous health benefits for your mind, body, and soul. While smoking may not be your cup of tea (which is another way of enjoying it), that doesn’t mean that CBD shouldn’t be a part of your skin routine.
“CBD has well-known anti-inflammatory effects,” says Dr. Roberta Del Campo, Medical advisor at BABOR. “It also has powerful antioxidant effects which help to minimize environmental damage.”
Dr. Del Campo also mentions that CBD can help calm acne-prone skin and rosacea, and calm skin that is irritated. “CBD can help to minimize inflammation and rebalance the skin. It can also help decrease the oiliness of the skin, which is beneficial for those with acne.”
You might have noticed that your skin is changing now that we’ve settled into spring. Your skin may have transitioned from dry to oily due to the increased moisture in the air. It’s possible that your skin is becoming more sensitive and irritated, or that you’re breaking out more as a result of stress and hormones. Whatever the reason, there are definitely methods to make the transition go more smoothly and make those skincare nightmares fade away.
“Repairing your skin is not overnight. It’s based on the skin’s issues and how many times a day it is used,” Dr. Del Campo tells ESSENCE. “By definition, most topical products take about 30 days to see a noticeable change but can occur faster in some.”
Searching for a new chapter, or, in this case, a whole new book, in the story of your skin journey? Well, we’ve got you covered. Here we’ve rounded up just a few of our favorite CBD beauty products, all of which are designed to give your skin a happy ending!

Tribetokes CBD Pumpkin Peel | Enzymes & Glycolic Stimulates Cell Turnover
Whether or not it’s pumpkin spice season, this facial peel will leave your skin feeling revived and renewed as it sloughs away dead skin and stimulates cell renewal. Pumpkin enzymes, which are high in antioxidants, combined with 3% glycolic acid (derived from Bilberry and Clove) increase cell turnover, lift discoloration and reduce the appearance of big pores.
For smoother, more luminous skin, the enzymatic process minimizes hyperpigmentation and fine wrinkles, while CBD decreases inflammation and redness. Not to mention, this at-home mask treatment smells delicious and brings back memories of autumn.
