CBD balm is a CBD-infused topical preparation that soothes the skin. It’s a mixture of full-spectrum CBD oil, shea butter, hemp seed oil, fragrance, and other flavored essential oils. Other than that, the balm is also rich in amino acids, vitamins, pigments, flavonoids, and other active cannabis ingredients that give your skin an overall younger and smoother look.
Here are some more benefits of this nourishing blend of natural botanicals:
Acne usually results from inflammation, and it’s a commonly known fact that CBD has anti-inflammatory benefits. Other than that, it also reduces redness and breakouts by soothing the skin. Generally speaking, oily skin types are more acne-prone. CBD also lowers your body’s natural sebum secretion and oil production to control the breakouts. Acne-prone skin also tends to be more sensitive and, often, coarse and dull. Any harsh skincare products can further aggravate the redness. CBD is a natural and topical compound, with little or no industry-grade ingredients. This is why it works well for most skin types under a wide range of environmental conditions.
Adulting means quite literally being on the run all the time. Taking a bus to work or working long hours means coming in contact with a lot of pollution, dirt, and free radicals. These are unstable molecules that affect our skin cells, both internally and externally. CBD skincare products have rich antioxidant effects that help your skin fight off these pathogens, carcinogens, and skin-threatening free radicals.
At first, the body fights off these free radicals through its natural antioxidating properties after a process called oxidative stress is triggered. When this system can no longer work against the increasing number of free radicals, you start seeing visible signs of pigmentation, wrinkles, fine lines, and an uneven skin tone. In this case, antioxidants like CBD balm boosts the body’s natural antioxidant-generating capacity and neutralizes the free radicals.
Healthy skin also feels and smells refreshing! Before you set out to meet a couple of colleagues for company dinner or for a date with someone you matched with on Tinder, you’d want to smell your absolute best. Other than the mind-blowing skin care benefits, a pleasantly flavored CBD balm will also make your body smell fresh. If you don’t find a CBD balm in your favorite scent, you can always infuse it with some skin-friendly fragrances of your choice. A CBD balm infused with some rose, lavender, or mint has its aesthetic appeal.
