Now summer has ended…
The end of summer is always a bit of a dip. Especially in these times of corona (Covid-19), where in many countries there is also a (partial) lockdown. This article blows a breath of fresh air to your daily skincare route and explains how to protect your skin during the cooler weather.
When the weather turns, you need more layers and you have ‘to swap’ your flip-flops and swimwear for thicker clothes. However, one of the biggest disadvantages of the cooler temperatures is their effect on your skin. As the weather gets cooler, your skin may feel less hydrated than it did during the summer. In addition, you may suffer from itching, pimples, chapped hands (also due to frequent hand washing during corona) and even chapped lips.
As soon as the weather gets cold, CBD can also be applied locally and help with some of the most important problems of your skin. This is why.
2. First stop, what is CBD again..!?
Nowadays, many people know and use CBD oil. Many studies agree that hemp-infused products have a lot of good effects on different skin conditions. For example, CBD oil can work very well for eczema or psoriasis. Since a lot of people know about it, but also a lot of nonsense appears about these products, I would like to clarify the effects of CBD and hemp oil on the skin.
As you have already read, the popularity of CBD oil has increased tremendously. But there is still a lot of uncertainty left, so what is it exactly?
Cannabidiol, the abbreviation is CBD, an active substance extracted from the leaves and buds of industrial hemp, a variety of hemp grown legally. The CBD oil is sold as a food supplement, in the form of oil and capsules. But also as a component of other products such as ointments.
3. And how does it work in our body?
Cannabidiol is one of the 104 active substances from the cannabis plant. It belongs as a substance to the group of cannabinoids. Another known substance that belongs to this group is THC, this is the substance that gets you high. In contrast to THC, CBD does not lead to a change of consciousness. So you don’t get high from CBD oil or hemp oil, because it doesn’t contain THC or a VERY low dosage.
There have been many studies that have shown that our body produces its own cannabinoids, just like the cannabis plant does. These body’s own cannabinoids play an important role in our body. They are produced by the endocannabinoid system (ECS) and this system regulates very important functions such as:
The cannabinoids link to the receptors that regulate the action in the body. Scientists have discovered that CBD helps the receptors in the body to function optimally. Among other things, CBD ensures that cannabinoids are better absorbed into the body. This results in improved performance of the above functions.
4. How does CBD protect your skin?
So, what exactly does CBD do for the skin? This question can be answered in several ways because cannabidiol induces a number of different stimulating processes for both healthy and affected skin cells. Some parts of the research on the effects of CBD have been well studied, while others are just coming to the surface.
