03 Mar The Next Generation of Beauty Products: What You Need To Know About CBD!
You’re stressed, your skin’s stressed, and then your stressed skin is making you even more stressed. We get it! Unless you’ve been tuning out these 3 letters these last few months, odds are you’ve heard of an ingredient called CBD (short for cannabidiol). The boosting ingredient, which, no, won’t get you high, even if ingested orally or as a supplement, has now evolved into a mainstream skin-care trend, with brands offering a huge range on what used to be a highly niche category. CBD has been known to treat pain, anxiety, spasms, etc. full of richly powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. Already, a handful of brands are starting to formulate with them — and consumers are responding. We’re here to tell you the highs (pun intended) of CBD beauty products.
OUR TOP CBD PRODUCT LIST
Let’s start off with one of many beauty brands that have welcomed CBD as a primal ingredient. Kiehl’s Cosmetics introduced a line of Cannabis products. Pictured below is the Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil Herbal Concentrate($50) which is a calmative, non-comedogenic face oil for problematic skin. The ingredients help improve skin’s barrier, reduce visible redness, and relieve discomfort while calming and soothing skin.
When researching the best CBD products this beauty kept popping up and upon further insight it seems to work miracles. The Herbivore Botanicals Emerald Hemp Seed + Adaptogens Deep Moisture Glow Oil($48) is for all skin types but works wonders for those with dry or blemish-prone skin. It targets dryness, dullness, and redness in the skin to create a flawless canvas for your makeup routine. The oil will provide deep moisture and a beautiful glow to the skin. It is calming and seriously hydrating with a blend of Omega-rich and irritation soothing Hemp Seed Oil and Adaptogens including Shiitake Mushroom and Ashwagandha Root.

KEY BENEFITS OF CBD IN BEAUTY PRODUCTS
Now that we’ve shown you our favorite products, I know some may be wondering why they should hop on this trend. Here are some quality benefits of adding CBD products into your makeup routine. The question is: are you ready to dive into the next generation of beauty?
1) Heal Acne, Redness, Inflammation
CBD oil is an effective and natural anti-inflammatory. Those who suffer from inflammatory skin conditions, like rosacea, benefit from the soothing properties found inside CBD. This miracle ingredient also reduces breakouts and calms redness by decreasing excessive levels of oil produced by the skin which is a major trigger for acne-prone skin.
2) Nourish Sensitive Skin
CBD oil will prevent flare ups in some skin conditions, like psoriasis and eczema, and helps soothe sensitive, easily-irritated skin. Incorporate a CBD-infused beauty product into your daily routine to nourish skin and lock in moisture for a healthy, glowing face.
3) Dive into the Fountain of Youth
Because it comes from a plant, it’s not surprising that CBD oil also has antioxidant properties. CBD oil combats the visible signs of aging with these powerful properties. Reduce inflammation, rejuvenate a dull complexion, even skin tone, and say goodbye to fine lines and wrinkles. That’s the power of CBD.
