Is Topical CBD Good For Your Skin?

There are 3 primary things CBD can help with on your skin:

  1. Reduce Inflammation
  2. Antioxidant support
  3. Normalize oil production

The great thing about CBD is that it is good for all skin types.

Whether you are trying to treat acne, rosacea, dryness, pigmentation, sun damage or simply maintain healthy skin, there is something in CBD that can be beneficial for you.

CBD is not a miracle ingredient for skincare.

There are no miracle ingredients.

There are a lot of very effective ingredients but the key to finding the product that is right for you is finding the right combination of ingredients, at the right amounts, from the right suppliers.

CBD’s purpose in our body is to help it return to balance or homeostasis.

Products like TRUST BEAUTY'S believe: CBD Product Efficacy Booster does just that.

Reduce Inflammation.

“There are studies documenting the anti-inflammatory properties of topical CBD and other cannabinoids, and studies in PubMed on the many different mechanisms of topical cannabinoids work in acne, eczema, and psoriasis,” Jeanette Jacknin, MD, from Elsevier’s PracticeUpdate.

Why is inflammation bad?

According to WebMD, Inflammation is a process by which the body's white blood cells and substances they produce protect us from infection with foreign organisms, such as bacteria and viruses.

The problem occurs when our immune system triggers a response when there are no bad guys to fight off.

Antioxidant Support.

Cells, TRP support, Many claim that CBD may be a more effective antioxidant than vitamins C or E but we feel that is premature and more human research needs to be done.

Why are free radicals bad?

The body is under constant attack from oxidative stress.

Oxygen in the body splits into single atoms with unpaired electrons.

Electrons like to be in pairs, so these atoms, called free radicals, scavenge the body to seek out other electrons so they can become a pair.

This causes damage to cells, proteins and DNA (LiveScience 5/27/16).

Normalize Oil Production.

We say normalize because we don’t limit or control oil production, healthy skin needs oil to maintain moisture and protection.

CBD specifically helps normalize the production of sebum, which, well combined with dirt and cellular debris, clogs the pores to cause acne.

“A 2014 study explored the effects of CBD on human sebocytes, which are the cells that create sebum.

The researchers found that the CBD prevented these cells from creating too much of the oily sebum.

They also revealed that the CBD oil triggered an anti-inflammatory reaction in the cells and prevented inflammatory cytokines from activating.

Cytokines may trigger acne, so reducing them may help prevent further breakouts.

A 2016 review of the cannabis plant highlighted its antibacterial and antifungal effects. These effects may help reduce infections from dirt and other pollutants on the skin.”

CBD also has antibacterial properties that can help in the treatment of acne.

Mark Blaskovich, PhD, senior research officer at the Centre for Superbug Solutions at the Institute for Molecular Bioscience at the University of Queensland in Australia recently presented to the World Health Organization his study that showed CBD exhibited better antibacterial activity than some antibiotics.

The study was done on animal tissue, so much more research will be required.

We’re confident that, as more research is done, even more benefits of CBD will come to light.

What’s almost more exciting, however, is the potential of the more than 100 additional cannabinoids that exist in hemp.

It will be exciting to watch as science uncovers more of the benefits that nature has given us with hemp.

One other benefit of CBD in skincare is it’s unique ability to penetrate the skin.

When combined with other ingredients like Vitamin E and nourishing oils, it’s a multi-faceted cocktail delivered deep into your skin.

Is CBD a miracle skincare ingredient?

No, but it is rich in vitamins and nutrients have proven vital to skin health and ensures that our skin has the tools it needs to be successful.

The secret sauce in skincare formulation is combining the right amount of the right ingredients in a way that they can be delivered into the skin - CBD is proving to be an essential part of this process.
