As the CBD benefits list continues expanding, it can be hard to sift through the information to find how CBD oil can address our specific needs and concerns. We’ve already discussed using CBD for PMS relief and sleep support, but now we’d like to discuss the potentially awesome benefits of topical CBD oil.
There’s a wide range of CBD skin care products that harness the naturally soothing powers of CBD to address skin concerns, namely redness and uneven skin tone. When our skin is irritated, not only is it less healthy looking, it can seriously impact our ability to move through the day confidently.
How Can CBD Help?
We all know the feeling of dread when first noticing a tender and red spot on our faces. When the spot eventually swells and turns into a painful and stubborn pimple, CBD can step in to soothe the area, clear your skin, and help you break up with painful and unsightly inflammation.
So just how does CBD help fight off those difficult zits? First, it’s important to understand what acne is and where it comes from. The common culprit of pesky breakouts include your unique genetic makeup, bacteria on the skin, inflammation, and an overproduction of sebum. This is an oil that comes from the sebaceous glands on the skin.
While it can’t change your genetics or help with bacteria, CBD has been shown to help support a healthy inflammatory response that can help attack tough pimples in real time. By soothing the inflamed skin, skincare products like CBD lotions and CBD creams may help promote evenness and clarity of the skin.
In addition to CBD’s inflammation benefits, a recent study showed that CBD can also take on irritation and unevenness by affecting the amount of sebum secretion our sebaceous gland cells produce. A less scientific way of saying that is CBD may stop blemishes from popping up by reducing excessive oils from being produced.
