Cannabis beauty products are becoming increasingly popular and in higher demand than ever before. One might wonder if it just a hyped up beauty fad, or if there are actually some real benefits to cannabis-infused skincare products. We’re here to set the record straight.
First, you must understand how cannabinoids work.
Most people are unaware that our bodies actually have what’s called cannabinoid receptors. These receptors are what connect with the cannabinoid compounds found in cannabis. When cannabis-infused products are applied to the skin, it is permeable through the skin’s pores and is able to reach nearby receptors. So now that we understand the importance of cannabinoids, how do they actually benefit us?
One of the biggest benefits to applying these products topically is their anti-inflammatory properties. By reducing inflammation, there is major improvement in a variety of problems such as scrapes and cuts, rashes, conditions such as psoriasis and eczema, and many other skin conditions. If you suffer from any of these problems, look no further!
Another amazing component of cannabis is its’ incredibly high levels of antioxidants. These antioxidants are a powerful aid in reducing fine lines and wrinkles. They also reduce free radicals, which are the culprits responsible for damaging the collagen in your skin. Younger, healthier skin, here you come!
As if it couldn’t get any better, cannabis can also help reduce our highly-dreaded acne. It has antibacterial properties that fight off any pesky germs causing acne to form. Additionally, it is chock-full of essential fatty acids that promote hydrated skin. It is also noncomedogenic and helps reduce oily skin. Who else is ready to kiss acne goodbye forever?
We all know very well that our environment is not kind to our skin. Between pollution and sun damage, we have to work a little harder to protect our skin and keep it as healthy as possible. Luckily, cannabis is loaded with vitamins A and D, which help create a protective barrier for our skin through cellular regeneration. Also, remember those fatty acids I mentioned earlier? Those also aid in skin protection and promote healthier, glowing skin.
So, there you have it. After learning all of this, we can’t find a reason to not incorporate cannabis beauty products into our daily regimen. There is no debate here – this is a bandwagon that you absolutely should jump on! Cannabis is no doubt the future of medicinal and beauty products.
