CBD has become incredibly popular for its therapeutic properties. And, in addition to helping with everything from stress and anxiety relief to muscle aches, there is also a lot of evidence pointing to CBD as an effective tool for relieving common skin problems.


The benefits of CBD come through topical application, which means applying CBD products directly to your skin as opposed to consuming them through edibles, liquids, or other mediums. And, while we still have a lot to learn about its unique skin healing properties, some benefits are already widely touted among skincare aficionados. Here are three of them:

 

1 -Acne Reduction


Acne occurs when dirt, oil, and dead skin cells get trapped in pores. This blockage leads to build-ups of bacteria—and thus, acne. Where CBD can help is in its ability to prohibit oil production by reducing the inflammation of sebocytes, the cells that produce sebum, in turn reducing the factors that allow bacteria to foster in the first place.

 

2 - Anti-Aging Properties


As we age, our skin loses moisture and elasticity, which can lead to dullness, redness, and wrinkles. CBD oil however is ultra-hydrating and contains healthy fatty acids that can plump up the skin and keep it looking at its best, especially when used in conjunction with other anti-aging skincare products like sunscreen and moisturizer.

3 - Alleviation of Dryness

Dry skin is the most common skin problem for people, and habitual dryness can lead to more visible aging. CBD actually has excellent hydrating properties and is one of the best solutions for combating dryness. It both nourishes and moisturizes, relieving both dry skin and the itchiness that it can lead to.
