The ability of CBD to interact with the receptors of the endocannabinoid system and other cells of the body has been put to good use. Information from research has shown how CBD may play a critical role in providing a vast array of potential benefits. The non-psychotropic properties of CBD and its interaction with the endocannabinoid system have been put to good use in a wide range of products. In this article, we shall look at the benefits of CBD for skin care and why you should use these skincare products. 

Why do we need CBD for skincare?

The skin is the largest organ of the body and tends to receive quite a great number of assaults from the environment. It is the first line of contact with environmental factors like UV radiation, bacterial toxins, and spores, to mention but a few. The inability to take care of the skin can lead to a loss of cellular integrity, signs of aging, and many more. The skin is well supplied with endocannabinoid receptors that can receive CBD and other members of the cannabinoid family to offer protection via the following activities.

a) Delayed signs of aging

CBD comes in handy in neutralizing the harmful effects of free radicals, thus promoting internal balance and delaying the signs of aging. Apart from this activity, lotions can also play a significant role in removing blackheads and clearing skin-related conditions like acne. 

b) Protection from UV radiation

Researchers have discovered how CBD can form a protective layer over the skin, thus keeping safe from the harmful activities of UV radiation. This protective layer may also come in handy in promoting moisture retention in users, thereby keeping the skin moist and well lubricated.  CBD creams and lotions are rich in terpenes, fatty acids like omega 3, 6, and 9. They act to keep the skin hydrated by forming a protective layer that retains moisture and protects the skin from the harmful effects of UV radiation.

c) Antimicrobial activity

CBD skincare products may provide some antimicrobial activity on bacterial and fungal species. It can keep the skin protected from the activities of pathogenic microorganisms and their toxins. 

d) Excellent anti-inflammatory properties

The anti-inflammatory activity of CBD has been widely discussed by several scientists. The interaction between and the endocannabinoid receptors in the skin can serve to modulate the activities of the immune system, thus keeping the body free from possible inflammation-induced reactions on the skin.
