Adding CBD Into Your Beauty Routine
25 September 2022
Thinking about incorporating CBD into your daily routine? Here’s what you need to know about CBD and its benefits, as well as which CBD products you can add to your daily skincare routine.
An ingredient that carries with it a wealth of beneficial properties, CBD is gaining a reputation as an anti-inflammatory powerhouse. If you’ve been searching for a supplement that can relieve pain, reduce inflammation and improve mood, look no further than CBD.
CBD is an abbreviation of cannabidiol, a beneficial compound from a group known as cannabinoids, which are found in the cannabis plant. Another of these cannabinoids is THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, which is responsible for the inebriating qualities you may think of when you hear the word ‘cannabis’.
CBD is a popular ingredient in many health and wellness products, and it’s used as one of the key ingredients in many beauty and skincare goods. You can even find it in food and hygiene products.
CBD is derived from the Cannabis sativa plant, specifically from the hemp plant. While it’s one of the over 100 chemical compounds (cannabinoids) that can be found in the plant, it doesn’t contain the psychoactive compound THC, which is responsible for giving its users a “high”.
Cannabis is in fact not a single plant, but a family of plants which includes hemp and marijuana. While marijuana is high in THC, hemp is biologically very different. The hemp plant has been used for centuries in the manufacture of cloth, paper and rope, thanks to its easy cultivation, hardy nature and fibrous stalk. Importantly, it is naturally low in THC, allowing the beneficial CBD to be extracted without any of the mind-altering aspects of its sister-plant.
How does CBD work?
Our body has an internal endocannabinoid system which is involved in everything from mood and appetite to inflammation and pain. As a phyto(plant)cannabinoid, CBD is able to enter this system and impact the cannabinoid receptors, helping to rebalance the body.
CBD Oil Benefits: A Powerful Health & Wellness Compound
CBD is a versatile component that can be used to help treat various conditions.
CBD and CBD products like CBD oil are renowned for the potential benefits they can offer, from easing pain to managing anxiety, depression, and mood disorders.
When taken in controlled or doctor-prescribed doses, CBD is considered relatively safe. However always speak to a doctor before using CBD, as it can counteract some medications, including antidepressants and antibiotics.
For a more restful night, you can use CBD for sleep. It’s thought to help calm the nervous system and potentially provide pain relief. CBD is also known for its potential anti-inflammatory properties, so if you’re prone to breakouts or sore skin, CBD is your new skincare bestie. CBD oil can help keep some skin conditions at bay because it contains compounds that can minimise oil and regulate sebum production. Plus, it has antimicrobial properties that may help manage the symptoms of problem skin.

One of the most accessible ways to try out the benefits of CBD is by adding CBD-infused beauty and skincare products to your daily routine. The good news is because of its versatility, CBD isn’t just for the face. You can also find CBD products for your body, hair, and scalp!
