Top 3 CBD Oil Benefits: Beauty Edition

Not-So-Breaking News: The CBD renaissance is steadily taking over the U.S. beauty market. You may have noticed CBD budding its head into daily skincare routines and inspiring a lush new design aesthetic for big-brand product launches. (Kiehl’s Cannabis Oil – we’re looking at you!)

If you aren’t familiar with this trending beauty ingredient, CBD is a natural compound derived from the cannabis plant. Heralded for its restorative power for all skin types, including acne-prone and sensitive skin, CBD is proven to help reduce inflammation and support skin’s natural healing process. 

Here at Camera Ready, we have officially hopped on board the CBD bandwagon. We’ve fallen in love with skin-loving, CBD-infused hero products from FITISH Beauty, Kiehl’s and more. How and why did we fall so hard?

The proof is in the research (and results)! Keep reading for the top 3 beauty benefits of incorporating CBD into your daily routine. 

First things first…

CBD Does Not Get You High!

CBD is one of 100+ cannabinoids (chemical compound found in hemp plants) that stabilizes the body and helps maintain health. You’ll find traces of CBD in marijuana, but CBD alone is non-psychoactive and legal to purchase in an isolated form.

The cannabinoid compound infamously known to get you high is called THC. This particular plant derivative is responsible for the psychoactive effects of marijuana.

Top 3 CBD Oil Benefits For Your Skin

1) Heal Acne, Redness, Inflammation

CBD oil is an effective and natural anti-inflammatory. Those who suffer from inflammatory skin conditions, like rosacea, benefit from the soothing properties found inside CBD. This miracle ingredient also reduces breakouts and calms redness by decreasing excessive levels of oil produced by the skin – a major trigger for acne-prone skin.

Our Favorite: Kiehl’s Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil Herbal Concentrate calms and heals stressed skin, formulated with 100% naturally-derived Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil (hemp-derived) and Green Oregano Oil.

2) Nourish Sensitive Skin

CBD oil inhibits flare ups in some skin conditions, like psoriasis and eczema, and helps soothe sensitive, easily-irritated skin. Incorporate a CBD-infused beauty product into your daily routine to nourish skin and lock in moisture for a healthy, glowing face. 

Our Favorite: FITISH Beauty’s CBD Cool Down Mist energizes and hydrates skin prone to redness, irritation or other inflammatory skin conditions.

3) Discover the Fountain of Youth

CBD oil combats the visible signs of aging with powerful antioxidant properties. Reduce inflammation, rejuvenate a dull complexion, even skin tone, and say goodbye to fine lines and wrinkles. That’s the power of CBD. 

Our Favorite: FITISH Beauty’s Dewing It CBD Moisturizer soothes irritation, calms redness and gently nourishes aging and sensitive skin types. 

Bonus Benefit: Reduces Anxiety and Depression

A staggering 24% of the U.S. population is affected by some form of anxiety or depression, as recorded by the Anxiety and Depression Association of America. CBD oil is scientifically proven to reduce stress levels caused by anxiety, depression and other disorders. Give your mind, body and spirit the all-natural healing it needs with the power of CBD!
