Why is CBD so Effective for Skin Care?
It’s summer and no matter how hard we try, we do end of soaking up some sun, possibly too much and end up with a nasty burn. Also, our aging faces don’t like sun and it shows.
CBD has a powerful ability to protect the skin and neutralize free radicals due to it’s numerous vitamins and fatty acids and their roles as antioxidants. These nasty free radicals are brought on by overexposure to the sun and UV rays, smoke and various other pollutants. Free radicals also can cause fine lines and wrinkles, leading to premature aging.
Not only does CBD have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties, but it also contains numerous essential vitamins, minerals, nutrients, several proteins and fatty acids. This is what makes CBD’s nutritional profile so astounding. We all know that proper nutrition is vital for optimum body and mind health, but most people do not realize how important nutrition is for the skin.
The skin produces endocannabinoid molecules such as anandamide (AEA) and 2-AG. These are constantly released in specific amounts, depending on the “healthy need” of the organ, resulting in the skin’s cannabinoid tone. This tone constantly affects all compartments of the skin, as endocannabinoids act on various cell types and contribute to their healthy physiological function.
Inflammation is the root of all evil, whether that’s acne or the signs of aging so let’s fight this bastard and get your skin, “comfortably-numb” too.
