Have you heard of this newest trend in skin care?

Have you heard of this one?

Many skin care companies are now infusing CBD into their topical products! It’s become one of the hottest skin care ingredients today. So is it worth the hype? Or is it all just a cloud of smoke?

CBD has been used successfully in the past as a topical pain reliever. Its anti-inflammatory properties may potentially improve inflammatory conditions of the skin, such as adult acne, rosacea, and even premature aging (since this can be caused by excess inflammation). But because of its past legal issues, few studies have been done to prove just how effective it is.

CBD also has anti-oxidant properties. Like the more popular Vitamin C, it can neutralize free radicals to protect the skin from being damaged by them. Unfortunately, I don’t know of any head-to-head studies comparing the antioxidant effects of CBD to Vitamin C. And we know Vitamin C works well.

CBD doesn’t get you high, unlike THC. Although both originate from the cannabis plant, and both have very similar chemical structures, only THC has psychoactive properties. So you can’t get high by applying CBD-infused creams on your skin!

Taking all of the above into account, I’d put CBD in a “has potential” category. If you’re a skin care enthusiast, and you like to try all the latest trends, then CBD-infused creams may be worth a look, especially if you have adult acne. However, I wouldn’t recommend it to take the place of more tried-and-true ingredients such as Vitamin C and retinol.
