When the humidity levels plummet, our skin's ability to retain moisture takes a hit. The result? Dry skin, pesky eczema flare-ups, and the unwelcome appearance of flakiness. If you're looking for a new go-to product for combatting dry skin this fall–CBD might be your answer!
Quality CBD boasts a remarkable arsenal of benefits, including being an antioxidant superior to Vitamins C and E. Antioxidants are like the body's personal defenders, scavenging free radicals from body cells and preventing or reducing the damage caused by oxidation. Antioxidants are also a vital part of the epidermis, and zinc is necessary for new cells to form.
At lost range.®, we harness CBD’s mighty potential as the perfect addition to your fall/winter skincare routine. Say goodbye to dryness and hello to radiant, nourished skin!
What Causes Dry Skin?
Before diving into the world of CBD skincare, it's essential to understand the root causes of dry skin. Dry skin can be a persistent and uncomfortable issue for men and women across the nation. According to a National Health Interview Survey, at least 81 million Americans experience dry, itchy, or scaly skin during winter.
Other environmental factors — including air temperature, wind, low humidity, and high altitude — can cause the skin to lose moisture and look and feel uncomfortably dry.
Skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis can cause chronic dryness and inflammation. Habits such as using harsh soaps and other skin products can disrupt the skin's natural lipid barrier, causing it to lose moisture more rapidly. Here are some tell-tale signs and symptoms that indicate you have dry skin:
- A feeling of skin tightness
- Skin that feels and looks rough
- Slight to severe flaking skin, which causes an ashy look that can affect dry brown and black skin
- Slight to severe scaling or peeling
- Deep cracks that may bleed
The struggle to keep dry skin hydrated and healthy is real, whether due to environmental factors or genetics. Fortunately, the emergence of all-natural skincare products has opened up a new avenue for addressing dry skin concerns. Especially with the addition of high-quality, all-natural CBD.
The Science Bit
CBD has recently gained significant recognition for its promising skincare benefits. Its unique interaction with the endocannabinoid system within your skin is pivotal in regulating various bodily functions, most notably moisture retention.
Recent scientific research has highlighted the benefits of CBD for skin conditions such as Eczema, Psoriasis and even Acne. Studies have shown that CBD inhibits an eCB uptake, which increases endocannabinoid levels, resulting in a homeostatic production of sebaceous lipids and an anti-inflammatory response that may be beneficial in treating cutaneous inflammatory conditions and dry skin.
How to Use CBD for Dry Skin
If you're looking to harness the potential of CBD for combatting dry skin, here's a step-by-step guide on how to make the most of its benefits:
- Choose Quality CBD Products: First, you want to ensure you opt for high-quality CBD products. Look for reputable brands that provide 3rd-party, lab-tested products. The CBD products should be free from harmful additives or contaminants and made from all-natural, high-potency CBD.
- Cleanse Your Skin: Begin with a clean canvas. Use a gentle, hydrating cleanser for your skin type to remove dirt, makeup, and impurities from your skin. Cleansing prepares your skin to absorb CBD more effectively.
- Patch Test: If you’re trying skincare products for the first time, it’s best to start with a small patch test to see how your body responds. If using CBD skincare for the first time, try a product lower in CBD, then make your way up to more potent CBD topicals.
Now that you know the basics, let’s begin crafting your personalized and perfect skin care regimen.
