CBD still has a lot of stigma around it and a lot of people don't actually know how truly amazing a skin ingredient it is. I love to call it the superhero as it really is. Not only if you have sensitive skin because it's a winner for this. CBD Leaf Extract is also great for its anti-inflammatory healing benefits. I didn't even realise how healing it was until I really put it to the test with some full on microneedling. The results were amazing.
With all the stress, uncertainty and mental health issues our skin really takes a hit. More and more people are turning to CBD for wellness and serenity. There are always so many questions like, does it actually work, can it get you high (the answer is no) and can a serum boost your mood? If it's taken topically, it doesn't affect your mood so you are safe to add it into your routine.
For those of you who don't know much about it. Here is some key info on the CBD we use:
The Cannabis Sativa Leaf Extract, which is the extract that comes from cold pressing and distilling the leaves of the Cannabis Sativa (Hemp) plant. The extract does not contain any hallucinogens or active THC. But does contain all of the goodness of the Cannabis Sativa plant.
We use a full spectrum extract that contains the full range of cannabinoids and terpenes, specifically Cannibidiol and CBD. CBD is known for its skin soothing, anti-inflammatory and anti-ageing properties. It also has the ability to reduce acne.
CBD offers a three-pronged skincare approach - it's anti-ageing, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. In terms of an antioxidant on the skin, it provides a missing particle that a free radical can bond with, stopping it from going on to cause DNA damage. As for anti-inflammatory properties, we know that skin ageing and inflammation go hand in hand, and CBD helps to combat oxidative stress.
Why is CBD Leaf Extract essential for your skincare routine?
We choose the CBD Leaf Extract because of its ability to calm the skin, help reduce skin inflammation and over time help reduce acne. It's such an amazing antioxidant as it helps get rid of free radicals and slow down the ageing process.
We love it for hydration as the fatty acids found in CBD (that’s still in an oil form) include omega-6 and gamma-linolenic acid which facilitate moisturization. The CBD Leaf Extract can really give instant relief to the skin. If you struggle with rosacea, eczema, dry/dehydrated skin then this ingredient is for you. But really it's for all skin types and amazing if you have stressed out skin that needs some love. It really does help give a more youthful complexion. It's also amazing if you microneedle or do skin peels. The healing process is amazing. Skin heels much quicker. One of our amazing stockists Bernice from Love Your Skin loves the mask with the peels:
"Wonderful results and applying the Soothing Sheet mask took the Frost away so much quicker than it normally would, which I think speeds up that healing and allows for quicker peeling "
We love CBD Leaf Extract and that's why it's in all of our products. Trust me your skin will love you for it. We got this and we've got you.
