How Can CBD Benefit Your Beauty & Wellness Routine?

JLessencials_CBD_Beauty_and_Wellness

Among the top health and beauty trends from the last year, the use of CBD oil has by far become one of the most popular. With its applications for pain relief, anxiety relief, and its potential for reducing symptoms of numerous conditions, it is no surprise that CBD (also known as cannabidiol) is popping up everywhere. In many health and wellness stores, it isn’t uncommon to find CBD-infused honey, bath bombs, lotions, and beverages. It is legal to use when extracted from hemp, and has a variety of beauty applications.

If you’re new to using CBD as part of your beauty and wellness routine, explore its three top benefits.

 Boosts skin health & appearance

Thanks to the ability to order almost anything at any time, people are constantly seeking the newest products for their wellness routine. As part of this movement, CBD has emerged as one of the most desired skin care products due to its unique properties. Some of the top benefits of skin care products containing the oil include the reduced appearance of acne and eczema. Individuals also report that in addition to clearing their skin, CBD skin care enhances the overall appearance of their skin. This is likely due to its unique blend of vitamins and other nutrients, as well as its ability to control how the skin produces oil. 

Relieves pain (even when applied topically)

One of the top reasons people seek out CBD oil (taken orally or applied topically) is for its ability to relieve pain. This is due not only to its proven efficacy, but also because users cannot become dependent on its use (as with many prescription drugs). The reason that CBD works so well in relieving pain is because of its anti-inflammatory properties. Much like an over-the-counter pain reliever, health and beauty products (e.g. lotions, balms) containing CBD oil can reduce inflammation at the site of an injury or on sore muscles. 

Reduces symptoms of anxiety and depression

As part of the heightened awareness of the importance of self-care as part of one’s beauty and wellness routine, taking care of your mental health is an absolute necessity. Several studies have shown that CBD oil can be extremely effective in reducing the symptoms of anxiety and depression. In fact, one review of several studies “concluded that CBD oil is a promising treatment for numerous forms of anxiety, including social anxiety disorder, panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder.”

Although studies are still being done to assess the scope of what CBD can effectively treat, the current research and testimonials show many significant benefits. Between its ability to boost your skin’s health, to its relief of pain, anxiety, and depression, CBD oil is a must-have for your beauty and wellness routine.
