If you’ve ever struggled to revive dry, cracked skin in the dead of winter or cycled through numerous beauty products in search of hydration, you know that healthy, glowing skin doesn’t always feel super easy to achieve. And although the internet is quick to offer advice ranging from adding collagen to your morning smoothie to making sure to drink a gallon of water a day, the truth is that healthy, hydrated skin is closer than you might think. Enter CBD: a powerful ingredient with a long list of benefits for your skin. No matter how robust your skincare routine might be at the moment, chances are you’re missing out if it doesn’t include this game-changer. What are those benefits, exactly? Glad you asked. We’re breaking down what CBD can do for your skin.
Dealing with dry skin is far from fun, and we’ve all experienced it at one point or another. The winter months especially can take a huge toll, and while we’re lugging around our parkas and re-applying our heaviest chapsticks, the low humidity and harsh winds can keep our skin from looking and feeling its best. This is because winter weather can strip skin of the natural oils that keep it moisturized. Even if you live in a warmer climate and experience less weather-related shifts, everything from harsh soaps to spending too much time in a hot shower can weaken the skin’s barrier and lead to dryness. This is exactly where CBD comes in to save the day. One of its major benefits includes the ability to boost hydration and revive dull, dry skin.
We’ve got you covered with our Daily Calm Lotion, which features CBD as well as niacinamide (a form of vitamin B3) and hyaluronic acid, another holy grail skincare ingredient. Together, this combo keeps your skin healthy and glowing while locking in moisture for ultimate hydration. We recommend making this a part of your post-shower routine, and apply when your skin is still a bit damp and can easily absorb the lotion for all of those amazing benefits.
Itchy, irritated skin is not it. While a variety of factors can play a role, especially if your skin is on the more sensitive side, this is another common occurrence in the wintertime. Being outside in the cold pulls the moisture out of your skin, which can lead to irritation in addition to that pesky dryness we discussed. That doesn’t mean you won’t experience the same thing in the summer, though.
Spending more time in front of the air conditioning rather than out in the fresh air can have the same effect. But before you swear off that ski trip or turn off your air conditioning, you should know that CBD can help with this. It’s super soothing, and works quickly, meaning you’ll experience relief almost immediately after application. Plus, with consistent use, you can keep your skin feeling healthy every day. Our Daily Calm Lotion is the perfect option here as well, as it also features calendula, another soothing plant-based ingredient, and is unscented, making it great for all skin types.
You know that healthy, natural glow we’re all after? Well, we’re here to let you in on a little secret: there’s a way to get it that doesn’t involve carrying a gallon of water everywhere you go, and that’s with CBD. In addition to providing hydration, CBD has a natural brightening effect that keeps skin looking glowy and cared-for. The benefits are only increased when you combine CBD with niacinamide, that amazing skincare ingredient in our lotion that we talked about earlier. Not only that, but your skin will be left feeling soft and smooth. Trust us and try it! You might just notice the difference the next time you look in the mirror.
Anyone up for some R+R? By now, you’re probably ready to order one of our lotions for yourself, and we can’t blame you. But beyond the seemingly endless benefits for your skin, applying CBD lotion can also have a relaxing effect on the body. (This is why you might hear of some people using it to help ease period cramps or calm down after a stressful day). We find that CBD is the perfect addition to a self-care routine for this exact reason, which is why we created our Rest & Relax Lotion. With the same CBD benefits that we discussed above and hyaluronic acid for luxurious hydration, we added magnesium and arnica to soothe away stress and ease the body. Plus, there’s shea butter to really nourish and soften skin, and lavender essential oil for an extra calming effect. You just might want to add this one to your wind-down routine.
Inspired to add CBD to your skincare routine? We don’t think you’ll ever look back. This game-changing ingredient is an essential, and our lotions actually offer higher levels of CBD than other popular brands. At 40 milligrams per application, you can count on getting every single one of those benefits. To keep your skin looking and feeling its best regularly, daily use is key, though. This way, your skin can stay hydrated, soft, and glowing all-year-round. Oh, and don’t forget about those bonus relaxation points! It’s (almost) too good to be true.
