    The Three Benefits of CBD Oil for Your Skin

    What is CBD Oil?

    CBD extracted from the cannabis plant is a natural compound containing useful cannabinoids.CBD oil is different from hemp seed oil which contains no cannabinoids. CBD does not have the psychoactive element [THC], which makes you high. It is safe to use. Perez et al. (2022) noted that CBD oil might benefit skin care and protection as antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant compounds. 

    How Does CBD Work for the Skin?

    How To Use It

    There are numerous ways of administering CBD oil to the skin, and different products can be used in various techniques.

    Skin cream: The CBD skin cream is applied directly to the affected part of the skin. This provides relief both on the surface and deep in the muscle. Sagud et al. (2021) established that in some cases, light massages with CBD oil could result in a soothing effect and good sleep.

    Carefully read the ingredient label of any CBD product to know the potency of the dose to gauge the amount to use. There are those with high potency providing up to 8mg per application, others 3mg per application depending on their potency. A bit of research is also essential. Just because some are expensive does not necessarily mean they have the right composition and potency.

    CBD Oil As A Medicinal Application

    Baswan et al. (2020) added that some ailments like inflammation, psoriasis, and eczema that affect the skin directly or indirectly could be managed using CBD, even if used orally. CBD oil can also relieve pain, mild anxiety, and stress, resulting in a relaxing mood, and good sleep may have positive effects on your skin. Studies are ongoing to establish the antimicrobial nature of CBD clearly, but it has long been known to contain antibacterial cannabinoids that inhibit germs infection.

    Peyravian et al. (2022) showed that CBD oil helps treat acne. Its antibacterial and antifungal properties help prevents acne caused by a skin infection. Sebocytes are agents in your body which create sebum; if overproduced, they can cause acne, and CBD can prevent overproduction.

    According to Metwally et al. (2020), CBD oil has a soothing effect on the skin in case of irritation to alleviate itching and dryness. CBD oils help reduce what triggers eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis.

    CBD As a Beauty Enhancement

    CBD beauty benefits are many. Some dermatologists recommend using CBD for hair and skin. It’s rich in vitamins A, C, and E. Vitamin A stimulates the cells responsible for producing the tissues that keep the skin firm and healthy; Vitamin C stimulates collagen production and helps to reduce signs of aging. Vitamin E blocks free radicals from the body, which helps slow the aging process.

    An acne complex inflammatory condition results in the overproduction of an overworked sebaceous gland, commonly associated with sebum overproduction.

    Skin Moisturizer and Softener

    For extra skin protection from radicals and oxidative stress, incorporate a few drops of CBD oil into your sunscreen. For skin dryness, CBD oil can serve as a good hydrant. This happens when the body loses water, or the skin has a condition. CBD oil moisturizers and other CBD products help in skin care, enhancing skin texture and appearance. They come in cream, lotions, jelly, or even liquid oil meant to be applied directly on the skin, especially when the skin gets irritated. Some skin care products can reduce redness and irritation on the face or even eliminate them.CBD serum can help solve skin problems like dryness, dark spots, and fine lines.

    Easy Application in Various Ways

    Most skin CBD products come as a cream, lotion, or liquid oil. Even those taken orally for other purposes eventually positively affect the skin. CBD products include capsules, tinctures, gummies, or even CBD tablets. Those applied directly on the skin or taken orally are best when full-spectrum and broad–spectrum, not so much as isolates. They are effective when taken with meals rich in oils like coconut oil, olive oil, and others to ensure better availability and absorption. You can use CBD oil for the entire body when bathing. Stir a few CBD drops into your warm bath for a relaxing and smooth hydration.

    Side Effects

    With a very good safety profile, CBD might have a few side effects, mostly before use. These may include mild Fatigue, diarrhea, constipation, nausea, and dry mouth. It is not advisable to take CBD oil when taking certain medications such as Antidepressant sedatives; consult your doctor first. 


    Even when CBD is consumed for reasons other than skincare, like alleviating anxiety, mild stress, arthritis, modulate sleep, it has an indirect positive effect on the skin. CBD is good for preventing some skin disorders like acne, which acts as an antioxidant, antifungal, and antibacterial when applied directly to skincare or health wellness.TRP receptors in the skin are targeted by cannabinoids helping regulate and balance different functions that formulate and maintain the skin barrier, cell growth, differentiation, and conditions such as tissue fibrosis. It can’t be said that CBD oil is here for everything, but the evidence is compelling; it plays a mighty role.
