What does the CBD Oil Actually Do?
Ooooh look at that new moisturizer! it has organic cannabis based CBD in it, but I have questions.
Will it make all these imperfections on my face chill? If not, it's complete bullshit.
First Off, Who's Influencing You?
When you think about skincare, the first thing that comes to mind usually involves lotions and creams you buy at department and grocery stores.
People interested in caring for their skin usually make shopping choices based on two primary influencers.
The first one is marketing and advertising.
The beauty and skincare industry spends billions of dollars trying to extract your money, so they can produce more extractions for you to buy...😡
Skin Care ads are plastered in TV commercials, bus stops, newspapers, billboards, and those annoying ads you have to sit through to watch a video on your phone.
Sometimes waiting for that "skip ad" button to appear on YouTube feels like an eternity and you're forced to watch it!
The second big influence comes from your family, friends, and some of your favs on social media.
Moms and other matriarchs teach their kids to use the same old brands they’ve used since the dawn of time, then we grow up and 'say WTF mom?'
This is where it's a thank goodness for creators and influencers online. Stick with me and you'll see why it's really great.
- At least we know they are getting paid to push some product on us.
- You can investigate an influencer online to see what else they peddle.
- You can see their face and them applying the product, so it's real.
Since the world changed in 2020, the skincare industry stepped up their game and started pushing their brands online to micro influencers too.
CBD products have provided a revolutionary new way to promote and enjoy beautiful skin by allowing you to find someone with your exact skin type, so you don't have to get bad advice from someone ever again.
Do the skincare companies want you to know the secrets? Nope.
We don't mind sharing though, because sharing is caring, right? 💚
Allow us to give you a quick tutorial on why CBD is the way to go when it comes to caring for your skin.
First, Let's Stick to the Basics About CBD
CBD stands for cannabidiol and is a hemp product. CBD with no tetrahydrocannabinol, known as THC, component to it will not cause a person to feel high.
CBD is legal in all 50 states, which has opened up a new market for companies to sell a variety of products with this ingredient.
First came the smoke shops, then came the online marketplaces, next came the websites, then the multi-level marketing spam, and now you can find CBD items that come in several different forms at the local grocery store and pharmacy.
There are so many different delivery mechanisms for CBD, but the most popular way that people absorb cannabidiol is through edibles, flavored CBD oils, lotions or rubs, and CBD bath bombs.
Experimenting with different products will give you an idea of what you like best and which ones give you the positive benefits you want.
But we're here for the CBD oil skin care secrets, so let's get with it!
CBD Oil and Skin Care
When we are babies, we start out life with perfect, soft skin.
It seems like there are so many years that pass before we learn how important it is, and how much effort it takes to ensure that our skin is healthy and hydrated.
Some people mistakenly believe that developing a skincare regimen is only for old ladies, but that’s not true.
Taking care of your skin is genderless and human. It's not like we are descendants of real lizard people, so let's try to be less reptilian and scaly.
Let's be kind here, but also be real. Those teenage years were brutal on a lot of us with acne scarring, so any knowledge we can pass onto the next generation to help them avoid it, we're sharing.
Life itself takes a toll on the skin, as do things like the environment and exposure to our yellow dwarf sun star.
People who don’t make a consistent effort to stay hydrated, or who smoke tobacco, often find their skincare suffers because of these bad habits.
However, no matter how well we take care of our health, we can always use some some reminders and discover new ways to keep up with taking care of our skin.
Preventative skin care and maintenance can prevent serious problems from developing and address those that are might already be prevalent.
