19 Feb CBDs for Skincare
CBD products have been entering the health and wellness scene on almost every level – from CBD deep tissue salve for sore muscles to sublingual extracts to alleviate a myriad of health issues, such as anxiety and stress. Now, there is another frontier where CBD is staking a claim: CBD-infused serums are becoming a popular way to enhance your skincare.
Recently, SunWater Spa began integrating naCHer Apothocary’s CBD-infused facial serum into the facial offerings.CBD, cannabidiol, is non-psychoactive, meaning you can not get high from the product, and has a number of healing properties that will rejuvenate the tone and quality of your skin.
Healing Effects of CBD-infused Serums
Michelle Steinmetz, one of SunWater Spa’s estheticians, explained the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties help a number of skin issues including redness, acne, and signs of aging. “It’s an effective antioxidant that slows the aging process. The skin then appears firm, healthy, and youthful,” she explains. “Additionally, studies have shown CBD can minimize the spread of damaged cells and promote the regeneration of new ones. This reduces the inflammation of acne, allows the skin to begin healing, and regulates the production of collagen.” All which lead to healthier, fresher skin.
Touted as a multivitamin for the skin, naCHer Apothocary’s CBD-infused facial serum is chock full of many nutrients to improve the tone and appearance of the skin. Ingredients include:
- Argan Oil
- Golden Jojoba Oil
- Rosehips Oil
- Sweet Almond Oil
- Hemp Seed Oil
- Safflower Oil
- Sunflower Oil
- Vitamin E
- Low-Temperature Distillation Hemp Extract (CBD)
- Lavender Oil
- Geranium Oil
- Vitamin C (tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate)
According to Emma Stone, author of “CBD Skin Care: Proven Benefits and Recommended Products,” “CBD oil contains high levels of omega-3 and omega-6, which are essential fatty acids used in the body. Fatty acids are vital to maintaining healthy skin—they keep the cell membrane flexible and lock in moisture. Researchers are also looking into the potential of CBD to treat skin disorders.”
A Personal Experience
Recently, I had a facial with the CBD-infused serum add-on. During the treatment, the heavenly aroma from the oils lulled me into a nice, relaxed state. I noticed a slight tingling to my skin, almost like it was being awakened from a long slumber. After the treatment, I felt my skin was plumper and heading out the door without any make-up did not matter. There was a natural glow to my skin. The next morning, instead of waking to taut, dry skin, much of the moisture from the serum had remained.
Consistency is Key
As with most remedies, whether exercise or skin care regimens, consistency is best. While you might not want to have a facial every day (or have the time to do so), SunWater Spa carries the naCHer Apothocary’s CBD-infused facial serum for your at-home use. I use it nightly, and it definitely soothes my skin and helps me to overcome the effects of the dry Colorado air, something that is a new experience since I had been living close to the ocean for much of the last dozen or so years.
