Currently, we stock our own CBD Repair cream, but before we do some shameless self-marketing, let’s get into how it works!
How Does CBD Work?
One of the main properties of CBD is that it’s a natural anti-inflammatory. This helps it to address a multitude of different issues like:
- Joint pains;
- Poor sleep cycles;
- Cardiac diseases;
- Sharpening brain functions;
- Mood improvements;
- And more.
Another factor that is a major bonus is the fact that CBD is also a powerful antioxidant.
The combination of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory makes CBD perfect for skincare.
You can use CBD oil and add it to your cream, or buy a product like our Zootly Repair Cream.
But what skin benefits does CBD provide?
CBD Skincare Reduces Signs of Aging
As we age, so does our skin. This ageing process (or life) starts to leave its marks. These signs can vary and can appear as:
- Red skin tones;
- Skin dullness;
- And wrinkles.
Most commercials will point you in the direction of anti-ageing creams. But CBD oil and cream can help.
CBD creams keep skin hydrated and healthy. This is due to the fact it has antioxidant properties and will reduce the signs of ageing mentioned above.
Then the plant itself also produces two fatty acids, Omega 6 and Omega 3, which stimulate the production of collagen, preventing excessive water loss from the skin, which in turn, helps your skin.
CBD Cures Acne
Acne appears when dead skin cells, dirt, or an excess of oil clog pores in your skin.
Once blocked, a bacteria (Propionibacterium acnes) that lives on your hair follicles multiplies, and causes inflammation, or acne.
CBD has anti-inflammatory properties, which will help reduce swelling and will slow oil production.
And because it’s natural there’s no excessive dryness and irritation on the skin.
CBD Skincare And Dryness
Managing dry skin can be a pain. Often many will reach for moisturisers. But over-moisturising can inhibit your natural processes and result in your skin needing more.
With CBD you’ll be using a naturally balanced solution that will nourish and moisturise your skin.
Also, its anti-inflammatory properties will assist with any damaged areas.
But for those looking for something new to add to their skincare regime, CBD can help.
