How does CBD work on the skin?

How does CBD work on the skin?

Cannabidoil, or CBD, is one of the 100+ active cannabinoids within the hemp plant. It is an amazing recovery-tool ingredient for the skin with anti-inflammatory properties. CBD skin care is taking over the beauty world and it’s for sure taken over our spa, treatments, and lifestyle. But, how does it work?

Our body contains its own Endocannabinoid System (ECS), which communicates with our skin directly through the CB1 and CB2 receptors. This system is represented in the 12 major body systems and communicates with our skin directly.

CBD communicates with ECS receptors, which are responsible for the skin’s homeostasis or balance. By using topical CBD products in our treatments as well as at home during your beauty routine, you are igniting the body’s natural healing process; encouraging healing from the beginning of application. Adding in a CBD infused facial treatment will support your skin’s recovery, especially for those with inflammation-based conditions such as sensitivity, acne, and premature aging.

CBD can also support the skin’s healing process by regulating skin cell reproduction, as it is highly antioxidant and antibacterial. Since this ingredient can also be taken internally, it offers an additional holistic style treatment by healing from the inside out. This additionally enhances the effectiveness of our professional treatments and skincare products by encouraging the body to move back toward balance.

When choosing a CBD skincare line be sure to look for organic, small batch products – high quality ingredients lead to excellent results. At the Hemp Spa, we offer a large retail selection of the highest quality, most result driven CBD infused skincare products on the market that are made by professionals, for professionals.
