Unique Skin Care - CBD Hemp Products
Hemp oil contains many components, including cannabinoids like cannabidiol (CBD), vitamins, and minerals, that have a bevy of health benefits. When hemp oil is applied topically, it is absorbed directly through the skin. Because it is applied right to trouble areas, the CBD hemp oil works directly where needed most and isn’t absorbed into the bloodstream.
Hemp is particularly ubiquitous in hair care because it is rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and, as such, is a great emollient to soften and smooth the hair. Fatty acids also help regenerate skin’s protective outer layer, leaving it smoother and younger looking. Those suffering from acne or dry skin could be lacking omega-3 fatty acids in their diet.
CBD as an antioxidant is even more powerful than Vitamin C, E, A, or omega 3 fatty acids, which are all also present in hemp oil, making CBD hemp oil a good source for antioxidants. Protecting the skin from free radicals, like UV rays, smoke, and environmental pollutants, is critical in having younger looking skin. Free radicals in the atmosphere cause fine lines and wrinkles; antioxidants protect our bodies from the damage of these free radicals, including fighting the effects of aging.
CBD can be used to affect the output of oils in the skin and hair. Specifically, CBD inhibits the lipid production in skin cells, making it an effective preventative for acne. However, manipulating this system can also be used to increase output of sebum as well to prevent dry skin issues
The anti-inflammatory properties of CBD can also control the other effects of acne because the skin around the zit is intensely inflamed. Pimples are effectively infections, and it is best to treat them as such. CBD can act as an antibacterial agent, decreasing the likelihood of further acne in the future.
Although CBD hemp oil shows effectiveness in beauty products, such as with anti-aging and acne relief, the elements in hemp oil hold promise in the treatment of a number of more severe skin conditions as well.
Atopic dermatitis (eczema) has been shown to improve after treatment with hemp oil. Although the exact cause of atopic dermatitis is unknown, it is suspected to be a type of allergic response, with the corresponding rash associated with inflammation of the skin.
Finally, cannabinoids have been shown to be particularly effective in controlling potential skin cancers like melanoma. Through its ability to control cell growth and death, CBD has been considered as a potential adjunct to current skin cancer treatments.
