Is CBD good for your skin?
As the remarkable potential of cannabidiol (CBD) continues to captivate the world, it becomes increasingly apparent that this versatile compound holds vast possibilities for supporting our overall well-being.
While oral CBD formulations are often the focus, the efficacy of topical applications cannot be overlooked. Can CBD genuinely benefit our skin as well?
Unlock the Benefits of CBD for Vibrant, Healthy Skin
When integrated into premium skincare products, CBD has demonstrated its ability to promote healthy skin rejuvenation and sebum production, revitalising and rebalancing both oily and dry skin types (Palmieri et al., 2019). Furthermore, CBD acts as a potent antioxidant, shielding your skin from the detrimental effects of free radicals (Atalay et al., 2020).
Understanding the Complexity of Our Skin: A Brief Overview
Our skin, the body's largest organ, is a complex structure that plays a vital role in our overall health. Comprising the outer Epidermis and the underlying Dermis, it serves as a protective barrier against environmental stressors, regulates body temperature, and participates in a multitude of other essential functions.
The Endocannabinoid System: A Fundamental Component in Skincare
The human body is equipped with an endocannabinoid system, consisting of endocannabinoids, CB receptors, and enzymes. This remarkable system plays a pivotal role in maintaining homeostasis or the optimal functioning of the body (Mounessa et al., 2017).
CBD, a naturally occurring cannabinoid, interacts harmoniously with our body's endocannabinoid system to enhance and optimise our biological functions. For example, taking CBD oil for sleep doesn't induce sleep directly; instead, it assists your body in achieving its natural state of rest.
With CBD receptors present in every skin cell, applying CBD-infused skincare products can yield an array of benefits throughout the body, ultimately promoting healthier, more radiant skin.
Exploring the Scientific Evidence Supporting CBD's Impact on Skin
Although research is still in its infancy, a growing body of studies suggests that CBD may confer anti-sebum, antioxidant, skin-protecting, and skin-conditioning benefits (Palmieri et al., 2019; Atalay et al., 2020). Additionally, the lipids in CBD oil closely resemble the fats in our skin, allowing them to penetrate deeply into skin cells and provide unparalleled hydration, soothing, water resistance, and water retention.
