There is a lot of buzz around CBD and its benefits. Many of these benefits are related to whole-body symptoms of pain, insomnia, and anxiety. But a few of these can relate to skincare as well!

So how does CBD work for taking care of the skin?
CBD assists in regulating your endocannabinoid system, which is responsible for balancing many key functions of the skin such as oil production, pigmentation, hydration, and acne. However, the benefits don’t stop there. CBD can be an incredibly effective ingredient in skincare due to its powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatory benefits, helping to take care of our skin, the body’s largest organ.
Help regulate oil production The overproduction of sebum is thought to be a contributing factor to acne. CBD may have an anti-inflammatory effect on sebocytes, the skin cells that produce sebum.
Assist in reducing inflammation Since CBD is an anti-inflammatory, it may be able to help reduce pain, swelling, and redness from breakouts or skin irritations. This can be helpful for skin conditions like eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis.
Hydrating dry skin Adding CBD to a moisturizing product suggests that it may be more effective for dry, dehydrated skin.
Acne A 2016 review notes the potential antibacterial and antifungal properties of the hemp plant. Preventing infections on the skin can help prevent acne. A 2019 study suggests that CBD may also be beneficial for treating the appearance of acne scars.
Infection Due to CBD’s antibacterial and antifungal properties, it may be useful for treating infections on the skin.
