The Benefits of CBD Oil in Skin Care
CBD oil (or hemp oil) has been found to have a number of positive health advantages on the hair and skin.
Some of the best nutrients for the skin and body can be found in hemp oil. Vitamin A and Vitamin D are both important for removing anti-oxidants from our bodies as well as helping with healing.
Vitamin B is meanwhile also present in CBD oil, helping with hair and skin growth.
Healthy fatty acids such as omega-3 are also found in hemp oil. A healthy dose of omega-3 has been shown to reduce the risk of diseases such as cancers and degenerative mental diseases.
Omega-3 is also brilliant for our joints, deterring illnesses such as arthritis. Hemp oil is jam-packed with these healthy fatty acids and has even been promoted as a healthy cooking oil.
Acne can be embarrassing to deal with and hard to treat. An overproduction of sebum and fatty oils called lipids is the main cause of spots and acne, often triggered by stress or hormones. In serious cases, doctors will generally prescribe anti-biotics to deal with the inflammation.
A more natural approach however could be to use hemp oil, which restricts the production of lipids in the skin, preventing outbreaks of acne. CBD oil also happens to have anti-bacterial qualities make it effective at getting rid of spots that are already there.
Hemp oil can also make a great natural anti-aging lotion. Studies into the endocannabinoids system as found in CBD oil have found that hemp may be able to regulate the life cycle of cells leading to more youthful skin.
By being rich in Vitamin A and Vitamin D, hemp oil can also help skin heal quicker, which is important when it comes to sunburn.
UV damage from the sun has been proven to promote wrinkles. By being able to combat this damage and reduce the inflammation, high doses of Vitamin A and Vitamin D may prevent skin from aging as rapidly.
Other nutrients such as omega-3 can further keep the skin looking youthful by keeping it pumped with anti-oxidants.
