Ingredient Spotlight: CBD Oil
If you have had your finger on the natural beauty pulse you will have noticed that CBD oil is receiving increasing praise and attention in recent months, becoming quite the buzz topic among holistic health experts and enthusiasts, but it actually is not at all new, and should certainly not be mistaken simply for another over inflated health or beauty trend.
CBD is actually quite miraculous, it has long been understood to support wellbeing when taken internally, particularly for symptoms and conditions associated with the nervous system such as stress, anxiety and poor sleep, or the immune system, which is involved in pain and inflammation of all kinds.
So what actually is it? And why use it in skin care?
CBD, also known as cannabidiol, is a component of the marijuana plant, it is legal and safe, and unlike THC, another component of the plant, it has no psychotropic or mind altering effects.
Cannabidiol is one of many phyto-cannabinoids found in marijuana, all of which have a beneficial boosting effect on the bodies own endo-cannabinoid system, a complex system of pathways and receptors intricately interwoven with other systems throughout the body, including the skin. The endo-cannabinoid system has been shown to be vital for maintaining homeostasis and a well balanced mind and body.
CBD has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits, and for this reason, lends it’s self perfectly for skin care, both taken internally and applied externally directly to the skin.
CBD is wonderfully soothing for the skin, helping to the reduce the redness and inflammation associated with skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and acne, as well as protecting the skin against free radical damage.
