The beauty industry excels at finding unconventional products to enhance skincare and makeup: cherries are used to help brighten dull spots, green tea to remove dead skin cells, and now CBD beauty products. The cannabidiol is extracted from the cannabis sativa plant, but instead of getting you high (like THC) it has been found to have various other benefits. According to Allure, CBD oil in beauty products has anti-inflammatory and pain-killing properties. The reason beauty brands are jumping on CBD is because many scientists have found that it can treat dry skin, psoriasis, and eczema. Use it on your dry patches in the winter and your sunburns in the summer to soothe your skin.
The 2018 Farm Bill legalized the production of hemp which allowed growers to extract CBD legally. Now many of the big beauty brands are looking towards CBD to see how they can incorporate the ingredient in their products. Whether you prefer to wear it as a face mask to make sure it all soaks in or apply it on your body to add an extra level of moisturizing, CBD is here to help (and might just be your next favorite secret ingredient).
From shampoos to muscle rubs, there's a CBD infused product for everything from your head to toes. Ahead 11 products containing CBD for all of your skincare needs.
