Full Spectrum Hemp Extract Oil & Skincare
As CBD continues to explode on the market, the beauty and skincare industry has jumped on the bandwagon. In addition to fighting things like acne, fine lines and wrinkles, and trying to hold on to our youth for dear life, some of us suffer from more serious skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, and even skin cancer. Can CBD help any or all of the conditions above and what does science say about it? Let's explore.
Our skin is the heaviest organ we carry, and like many other functions in our body our skin is regulated by our Endocannabinoid System (ECS). Studies show that CBD may possess anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressant qualities, making it potentially beneficial for a variety of inflammatory skin conditions.
Here are some things to consider and to look for when looking for CBD products to use for skincare or skin conditions:
- Full Spectrum CBD Oil (FSO): unlike CBD isolate, full spectrum oil contains other valuable cannabinoids and terpenes in addition to CBD, offering potentially therapeutic and healing benefits by activating our ECS via The Entourage Effect (synergy of all compounds found in hemp)
- Ingredients: like any other product you are putting in or on your body, it's important to look at the other ingredients listed. Make sure there are no unhealthy additives that might be damaging to you or your skin. Healthy Roots Facial Serum for example contains healing, gentle ingredients like MCT Coconut Oil, Grape Seed Oil, Jojoba Oil, Cocoa Butter, and Lavender Oil. Our Root Butter contains soothing Mango Butter, Shea Butter, Vitamin E, and Sweet Almond Oil to name a few. Our Roller Bomb contains a variety of soothing essential oils as well.
- Application: in addition to applying products topically, keep in mind that our bodies heal from the inside out as well. Ingesting phytocannabinoids will also activate our ECS, which as previously mentioned regulates skin cells.
Based on clinical studies and anecdotal evidence, it can't hurt to give CBD a try for your skin. Enhance your ECS by supplementing this with other things like drinking plenty of water, getting enough sleep, breaking a sweat, and eating the right foods.
Healthy Roots has an extensive line of body care products that we use ourselves and stand behind 100%. We even had a powerful testimonial from a registered pharmacist recently who used Healthy Roots to heal her cystic acne:
"Got zits? I found a new use for this fantastic, CBD only tincture made by Healthy Roots Hemp! Once or twice a year I get deep, cystic acne that takes months to clear up. I ran out of the steroid cream that I generally use to tame it, so I decided to try a dab of this potent tincture. It took 2 nights (as opposed to 2 months) to eliminate my deep seated, hormonal acne. Yay!!!"
