Our sebaceous glands and hair follicles contain CB1 and CB2 receptors which work to communicate with the nervous system to produce different effects, such as reduction of inflammation.
CBD has been proven to have anti-inflammatory benefits that help with eczema, itching, and pain. Using CBD in dermatology helps reduce oil and redness, which was particularly beneficial to those with acne, rosacea, and dandruff.
CBD reduces acne because of the anti-inflammatory properties that work to reduce the visible inflammation caused by clogged hair follicles.
CBD targets the problem-causing cells, leaving healthy cells alone and reducing side-effects common to many acne medications, such as dry and irritated skin.
If you aren’t entirely sure how to apply CBD Topicals, here are some simple and easy instructions to ensure that you’re applying it correctly and effectively.
1. Don’t mix CBD skin products with other topical products.
Make sure you are not mixing CBD Topicals with other skin-care products. Don’t apply to areas that affected by other products. This will ensure that your skin is absorbing the oil in its entirety, combining multiple skin-care products will only dilute the effects and reduce its effects. Not to mention a lot of over the counter skin care products contain toxic chemicals that do more harm than good.
2. Make sure you are applying it at the right time.
Don’t apply CBD oil before showering, bathing or taking part in an activity that will make you sweat. Water will wash away the oil from your skin before it has time to absorb and take effect. Similarly, sweating can also prevent the oil from penetrating the skin, which will nullify the effects.
3. Apply liberally and massage CBD oil into the skin.
Once the oil has been applied, massage it gently but firmly into your skin. The body doesn’t absorb much of the cannabinoid in doses that are too small, so make sure you apply plenty.
Make sure to wash your hands fully once you are done so you don’t spread irritable substances to sensitive areas like your eyes.
4. Follow the directions on the packaging.
Make sure that you’re applying the amount of oil that is recommended on the packaging. Read any and all instructions carefully and make sure you follow them closely. Following these instructions is the best way to ensure that you’re getting the most out of your CBD.
