Does CBD provide skin care benefits or is it just hype? From anti-aging to acne-prone skin, here are the soothing properties CBD provides to your skin.

Ever wondered what the big deal is about CBD in skincare?  Is it just another trend? Or is there real evidence that helps back up this ingredient’s sudden rise to fame? We’re writing this article to help break down CBD skin care benefits.  There is so much information and misinformation on this topic, and our goal is to help clarify and debunk that for you!  We’re going to start with the general properties of CBD, move into why CBD is amazing specifically for acne-prone skin, talk a little bit about CBD for wrinkles and anti-aging, and finish off with the CBD skin benefits of CBD oil for sensitive skin.  We want you to understand how it works, and why it works.  

The best way to start is to mention that CBD is an amazing, super-powered ingredient that has amazing properties for many different ailments.  Research shows that it can help relieve anxiety, significantly reduce chronic pain symptoms, especially in patients with arthritis, and it has incredible anti-inflammatory properties.  When used topically, it can help significantly with acne, eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis.  The main problem is that to extract CBD from its mother plant the process has to be closely monitored and done right.  Before we even start getting into the properties, we want to mention that here at The Feelist all of our CBD is extracted in the best possible way.  We pride ourselves in using the highest quality, organic hemp and a subcritical CO2 extraction method.  The result is the most clean and safe form of CBD that preserves the effective superpowered properties of the plant.   We also know that the amount of CBD in a product matters, therefore we never cut corners.  All of our highly effective products contain between two hundred and fifty and five hundred milligrams of CBD.  It’s really important to do your own research when looking into brands that use CBD.  Any brand using this ingredient should be able to answer all your questions regarding potency, extraction, and should be able to provide you with a certificate of analysis (ours is linked in the ingredient list of all our products containing CBD).  Our goal is always to provide our customers with the best CBD skin care benefits.  

CBD is an amazing ingredient especially for acne-prone skin.  Because of its anti-inflammatory properties, people who use CBD in their skin routine see almost instant results.  Many people who have tried our Most Wanted Radiant Facial Oil with 500mg CBD have claimed to have seen dramatic results with redness reduction and a decrease in overall inflammation.  Since stress is a very real cause of acne, people often times find themselves in a vicious cycle of stress caused acne, and acne-caused stress.  So when you apply ingredients that very quickly can reduce the redness and inflammation on your skin,  you can finally break that cycle and feel some relief from the pain and frustration that inflamed skin can leave you with.  If you don’t necessarily have acne prone skin, but would say you have sensitive skin, CBD oil could be a great option for you too!  The super powered ingredient is known to soothe, reduce redness, and hydrates like no other ingredient.  If you suffer from psoriasis, or eczema, a cream or oil containing about 250-500mg of CBD could significantly reduce your symptoms of inflammation.  Why is CBD anti-inflammatory?  Research shows that CBD reduces inflammation by affecting activity in your body’s endocannabinoid receptors. As nature would have it, your body’s master regulatory system is the endocannabinoid system. This crucial system helps the body attain and maintain homeostasis, aka a happy and healthy state of equilibrium. When CBD enters the body, it attaches to the receptors of your natural endocannabinoid system to promote balance and maintain health. These receptors control so many important functions of the human body, like pain perception, inflammation and stress response.

Because CBD is a powerful antioxidant, it also helps reduce signs of aging.  This means that if you would like to improve signs of aging such as wrinkles, you could benefit from CBD skin care.   People who are looking to reduce signs of aging have claimed that their skin looks less dull and wrinkles were less noticeable after just a few uses of our oil.  Since it comes from a plant, CBD is super filled with antioxidants.  It by no means is the only or best ingredient with antioxidants, but just one of many amazing ingredients.  We actually developed our Most Wanted Radiant Facial Oil with this in mind.  Every ingredient is a super powered botanical full of natural goodness, and CBD is just one of many in the mix!  We personally love it for its ability to lower the effects of environmental stressors, which you may experience more strongly if you live in a big city or in an environment where the air is more polluted.

Even applied as a topical, our Necessity and Do Not Disturb Body Creams hand and body creams with two hundred fifty and five hundred milligrams of CBD respectively have performed incredibly well for people who suffer from arthritis.  Do Not Disturb Extra Strength Body Cream is a deeply relaxing and restorative moisturizing body cream infused with an extra strength dose of 500mg Broad Spectrum CBD. Formulated with a unique blend of essential oils and natural extracts to calm your senses and put your mind and body at ease.Another amazing way to use our creams is on your neck and back before going to sleep, especially if you suffer from neck and back pain due to working from home during the pandemic. Tech neck is a real thing! On the other hand, we have gotten many messages from customers who suffer from hand cramps due to sitting at the computer all day. Keeping our Necessity hand cream on their desk next to them and using it throughout the day helps alleviate the pain.  Necessity is an uplifting and revitalizing moisturizing cream infused with 250mg of Broad Spectrum CBD. Bergamot, Vetiver and Citrus oils refresh the body while Mango Seed and Shea butters nourish and deeply condition the skin, leaving you feeling recharged and balanced throughout the day. Both of our creams were developed so that CBD is not the only super powered ingredient.  We crowd sourced and asked skincare experts, enthusiasts and YOU about what ingredients would create the most perfect blend.
