When you hear “CBD beauty” you might ask, ”What can this do for my skin?” Or, “Will it seep into my skin and make me tired?” Or, you might say, “CBD??!! Gimme all of it!”

Whatever your thoughts, just know, that CBD oil, short for cannabidiol, is generating some serious buzz for its health and beauty benefits. But, unlike THC, CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid – meaning it doesn’t make you feel high. This powerful ingredient can, however, give you a beauty fix in everything from facial masks and skin serums to body butter and bath soaps.

And, like the metaverse, CBD beauty brands are not going anywhere anytime soon. In fact, it’s just the opposite. Retailers are including more CBD product lines in their skincare and body assortments due to high demand (pun intended). 

CBD beauty brands are also seeing a huge global opportunity, with this market expansion – leading to increased profitability margins. The U.S. CBD skincare market is expected to reach $311 million this year alone, with the global market growing to upwards of $1.3B by 2027.

So what does that mean for your beauty routine? Well, if you’ve never purchased a CBD-infused beauty product, you are in for a serious treat. CBD oil is chock-full of antioxidants which can help to address several skin issues and even reduce the signs of aging. 

Here are three reasons to take the CBD plunge.

It’s Perfect For Sensitive Skin

CBD offers anti-inflammatory properties that are ah-mazing for aiding relief with eczema and dermatitis. Use it and say buh-bye to dryness and itching!  In addition, CBD can help regulate oil production by fighting skin inflammation, making it a good choice for people who suffer from oily skin, combination skin, or acne. How’s that for multipurpose?!!  

Reduce Breakouts

Due to CBD’s oil production regulation, some facial products can actually reduce breakouts and treat free radical damage. It can also soothe psoriasis symptoms.  #tellusmore

Beat The Dry Skin Blues

CBD has moisturizing properties that can help combat dehydration and dryness, taking you from ashy to classy in no time flat.

So CBD-infused products are just what the skin doctor ordered! 

However, be mindful of the label. CBD isolate is the purest form of CBD on the market. Due to its purity, this is the best form for the skin – it won’t clog pores and is still packed with skin-rejuvenating antioxidants. Two other forms, “full-spectrum CBD” and “broad-spectrum CBD,” are close runner-ups. 

If you can’t find specific mentions of those, look for products with cannabidiol, hemp extract, or hemp CBD on the label. If you see these ingredients, you’ll know it contains CBD oil and that you’re good to go.
