If you’re hesitant to try beauty products laced with Cannabidiol (CBD), a byproduct of the cannabis plant, allow us to put you at ease. CBD is extracted from hemp, a nonpsychoactive strain of the plant that lacks Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the chemical found in marijuana that induces a high. Consequently, hemp-infused serums, soaps, and moisturizers shouldn’t have you paranoid. In fact, you can relax and perhaps better than ever once you’ve incorporated them into your skincare routine.
Because hemp contains high amounts of CBD, a chemical with natural anti-inflammatory properties, hemp-infused skincare products may reduce bouts of dry skin, eczema, swelling, and Acne. A 2014 study, published by the Journal of Clinical Investigation found that CBD helps to lower the production of sebum, the naturally occurring oily substance that can lead to Acne. Not to mention, hemp is also a great source of essential fatty acids that help keep our skin hydrated, plump, and rejuvenated.
It’s no secret, our skin takes on a lot of stress throughout the day and when we let it pile up, it doesn’t go unnoticed (hello breakouts and dullness). Hemp-infused potions are just what you need to take the day off and so we’ve rounded up few to add to your nighttime routine. Check them out!
