Does CBD help acne-prone skin?

Acne-prone skin can feel uncomfortable and so skincare ingredients that soothe and calm the skin (that’s where CBD comes in) are likely to visibly reduce breakouts and breakout-related redness.

Numerous studies have shown that CBD oil has soothing benefits when applied to skin. This makes CBD a suitable ingredient for acne-prone skin, while its calming benefits help reactive skin look and feel better.

Research also shows that CBD has the potential to decrease excess sebum (oil) production, possibly due to its balancing effect on the flow of skin’s oil.

Despite such encouraging news, most scientists studying CBD agree that more conclusive, scientific studies are needed to confirm these initial results for CBD and acne-prone skin.

 

CBD for skin ageing and wrinkles

Because it comes from a plant, it’s not surprising that CBD oil also has antioxidant properties. The antioxidants in CBD are one way topical use helps lessen the visible signs of ageing. By counteracting free-radical damage and reducing the look of inflammation, cannabidiol skincare can help to visibly diminish issues like wrinkles, skin dullness, and red-coloured skin tone.

Of course, there are plenty of other antioxidants out there that can make the same claims so CBD isn’t the only or “best” antioxidant to seek out; rather, it’s just one of many to consider, and the more of these ingredients you give to skin, the better.

 

CBD for sensitive skin

One of the benefits of CBD is that it has been found to have significant soothing properties. Its substantial skin-calming and skin-normalising effects can help minimise issues related to skin sensitivity, including redness and reactivity. Since all skin types are affected daily by environmental stressors, CBD’s soothing mechanism can help keep everyone’s skin in check.
