Skin is the largest organ in your body - and one of the most visible. Your skin is subjected to all kinds of stresses throughout your life, from weather, pollutants, hormones, sun exposure, and the natural aging process. So it's not surprising that it needs a little TLC to look and feel its best.
That's why cbdMD has created cbdMD Botanicals, our special line of CBD skin care products. Combined with other high-quality ingredients, CBD can bring that extra nurturance your skin needs to stay soft and radiant.
In this guide, we'll explain how CBD can help your skin and give you an overview of our full line of products. We'll explain how you can build a daily and weekly routine with the different products for complete face and body care. Then you'll be ready to pick out which ones work best for your skin type and lifestyle.
To understand how CBD can function in skin care, you need to know how it interacts with your body.
Elsewhere on this blog, we've explained that CBD interacts with your endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is involved in many different bodily functions, but overall it supports homeostasis: the balance your body maintains in the face of various environmental pressures.
When you take CBD internally, this can help you feel calm and relaxed. But your skin has endocannabinoid receptors too, which can interact with topical CBD products in more targeted ways.
Research into the benefits of topical CBD is still ongoing, but many users find that it's as calming and balancing for skin as for everywhere else. We've already successfully combined CBD with pain medicines to make extra-soothing topical products, so why not harmonize it with the best of skin care?
By combining CBD with other ingredients skin loves, the benefits of CBD for skin care are even greater. We'll be discussing some of these ingredients in depth in upcoming posts. But the key point for cbdMD Botanicals is that we keep it natural - no harsh chemicals, artificial perfumes, or dyes.
Better yet, all of our products are cruelty-free, paraben-free, gluten-free, and non-GMO, and only two of our products contain any kind of animal product (beeswax, to be precise). That way, we ensure that all our CBD skin care products are healthy both for you and for the planet.
While we do have a few products for the body, most of our CBD beauty products are for the face. For your face, we recommend a twice-daily routine - every morning and evening - following a sequence like this:
Start your routine with a facial cleanser of your choice. Once your face is clean, it's primed to receive some extra nutrition. We've got three special formulas to keep your skin glowing.
As a last step, you want to seal in all of that good stuff and protect your skin with a good moisturizer. We've got four that are good for daily facial care
With your daily facial-care routine in place, you can explore our other CBD skin care products designed for the rest of the body. All of these are good for all skin types:
So that covers your daily CBD skin care. But sometimes, your face could use a little extra TLC, whether due to weather or just normal wear and tear. To that end, we've developed several products for use once or twice a week, or occasionally as needed:
And as an added bonus, we offer Tried & True Four Thieves Spray, which isn't actually a skincare product, but will help keep your whole environment naturally clean. Based on a legendary formula used by a band of thieves in medieval France, it includes essential oils of rosemary, lemon, clove, cinnamon, and eucalyptus in a grain-alcohol base. Try spritzing it in the air, on your linens, in the car, or anywhere you want its unique, invigorating scent.
This has been a brief overview of our whole CBD skin care line, but in the coming days we'll dive into the specific products in more detail. And keep an eye out for new product launches, because we're always finding new ways to bring you beautiful skin with the help of CBD!
