If you’re like me, we look for beauty shortcuts. One relatively new secret I’ve discovered is CBD. Yes, that CBD. Let me explain.
A Brief and Basic Run Down
CBD stands for Cannabidiol. It’s derived from the hemp plant, cousin of the marijuana plant, and does not cause a “high.” CBD is being used for a wide variety of health issues, including depression, anxiety, PTSD and pain, but most exciting for us beauty aficionados is that it’s finding its way in the beauty industry in a pretty significant way.
CBD is full of antioxidants, which of course are so important to replenish the skin from pollution, sun and environmental factors. It helps with cell turnover, keeps us fresh-looking and reduces the appearance and development of fine lines. So naturally, given all of these amazing benefits, CBD is popping up in many different beauty categories — masks, face moisturizers, body moisturizers, serums, self-tanning products, hair care, etc.
One of the Biggest Beauty Trends
CBD oil emerged as one of the biggest beauty trends in 2018. And at the start of 2019, roughly 20 percent of beauty consumers stated they were using CBD-based beauty products. Mid year that number had increased to approximately 40 percent. If you’ve ever used CBD in your beauty regimen you can certainly understand why.
I was first introduced to CBD Beauty through Global Xtracts’ Phytocannabinoid -Rich Hemp Oil face mask CELLULOSE FACE MASK – 3 PACK – CBD 101.
This sheet mask is saturated with serum and transformed my skin from dull and dry (with some weird texture thing going on) to radiant and hydrated in just one treatment.
I use all of the extra serum for my décolleté, elbows, knees, cuticles and back of the hands. Can they please make a body mask version?!
Like many of you, I have every intention to start this new decade with a healthy me. Mind, body and spirit! How am I going to do this? Personally, I am going to re-commit myself to get fit. By re-programming my mind towards simplicity I hope to make healthier choices, and become a better influence for my children.
I’m excited to see all of the beauty benefits this up and coming CBD world has to offer. Follow me @beautymom702 and come explore with me…
