Finding moments of self-care is becoming increasingly essential, am I right? I mean, I just got back from vacation, and felt like I needed a vacation from my vacation. But, that’s typical. 

Don’t get me wrong, my vacation was everything vacations are meant to be: no stress, eating breakfast at a cute little cafe every morning we could walk to (thank you Surfinista), sleeping in, laying on the beach every day, playing – yes, playing in the ocean (even getting knocked down by the waves and laughing hysterically). It was pure bliss. 

Then coming back home. 

Laundry, grocery shopping, catching up on life, chores, chores, chores! Did I say chores!?

So I really want to share what I’ve found about CBD. I use it in my Massage Studio, and at home, and I love that it’s  becoming more well known, and that more research is coming out about it too. Win!

And amidst the frenzy and chaos of daily life, CBD oil has emerged as a soothing elixir, offering a spectrum of benefits that extend beyond the conventional. Let’s look at the softer side, and delve into the light and playfulness of topical CBD oil, exploring how this remarkable substance can work wonders for your skin and overall well-being. 

Buckle up for this delightful journey through the science-backed wonders of CBD-infused skincare!

CBD and Your Skin: A Perfect Match

Picture this: a blissful evening, a warm bath, and your trusty bottle of CBD-infused oil at your fingertips. This idyllic scenario is not just the stuff of dreams; it’s a reality for many who’ve discovered the enchanting world of CBD topicals.

Radiant Skin for Days

Let’s start with the most noticeable benefit – radiant skin. We all aspire to that glowing, healthy complexion, and CBD oil can be your secret weapon. Research published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation [^1] highlights how CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties can help combat skin conditions like acne and eczema. It works by reducing excessive oil production and soothing irritated skin, leaving you with a complexion that’s as clear as a summer’s day.

Age-Defying Magic

They say age is just a number, and with CBD oil on your side, it can certainly feel that way. A study in the journal Free Radical Biology and Medicine [^2] discusses how CBD’s antioxidant properties can help combat the signs of aging. It fights off those pesky free radicals that cause wrinkles and fine lines, allowing you to embrace your youthful radiance.

Calming the Storm

In today’s fast-paced world, stress is almost unavoidable. But fret not; CBD topicals are here to offer you a slice of tranquility. Research conducted by the National Institute on Drug Abuse [^3] suggests that CBD can reduce stress and anxiety. When applied topically, this calming effect extends to your skin, alleviating tension and leaving you with a relaxed, serene glow.

The Science Behind CBD Topicals

So, what’s the secret behind CBD oil’s magical touch on your skin? It all comes down to the endocannabinoid system (ECS). Discovered in the 1990s, the ECS is a complex network of receptors throughout your body, including your skin. These receptors, known as CB1 and CB2, play a crucial role in maintaining balance and harmony, both internally and externally.

When you apply CBD oil topically, it interacts with the ECS receptors in your skin. This interaction triggers a cascade of reactions, resulting in the wondrous effects we’ve explored so far. It’s like a harmonious symphony, with CBD as the conductor, orchestrating your skin’s wellbeing.

How to Incorporate CBD Topicals into Your Skincare Routine

Now that we’ve uncovered the science, let’s dive into the fun part – incorporating CBD topicals into your daily skincare routine.

Cleanse and Exfoliate: Begin with a gentle cleanse to remove impurities and dead skin cells. This sets the stage for CBD absorption.

Apply CBD Oil: Dispense a small amount of CBD oil onto your fingertips and gently massage it onto your face or targeted area. Remember, a little goes a long way!

Follow with Moisturizer: Seal the deal with your favorite moisturizer to lock in the CBD goodness.

Sunscreen, Always!: Don’t forget to apply sunscreen during the day to protect your skin from harmful UV rays.

Safety and Quality Assurance

Before you embark on your CBD skincare journey, it’s essential to ensure you’re using a high-quality product. Look for these key factors:

  • Full-Spectrum or Broad-Spectrum: These types of CBD oil retain more of the beneficial compounds from the cannabis plant, offering enhanced benefits.

  • Third-Party Lab Testing: Reputable brands should provide lab reports that confirm the potency and purity of their products.

  • Organic and Ethical Sourcing: Choose products made from organically grown hemp to avoid harmful chemicals.
  • Start Slow: If you’re new to CBD, start with a low concentration to gauge your skin’s reaction.

In the realm of skincare and well-being, CBD oil emerges as a playful, versatile ally. Its scientific prowess, combined with the soothing sensation it offers, makes it a must-try addition to your beauty routine. 

From rejuvenating your complexion to calming your nerves, CBD topicals are a delightful journey into self-care that promises radiant skin and relaxation like never before.

I offer an organic grown CBD from Boulder at my practice, and it’s loved by many. I love that I can offer this to people so they get the benefit of the massage along with the benefit of CBD!

So, why wait? Embrace the playful world of CBD-infused skincare and let your natural beauty shine through, one drop at a time.
