While inhalation and oral consumption can help us experience the amazing abilities that CBD has to offer, there’s another less common method that is rapidly growing in popularity. Did you know that CBD can also be used as a topical that can greatly benefit your skin? There are several different skin ailments that CBD oil can treat. Do you suffer from any of the following ailments?
Skin Ailments that CBD Oil Can Treat
CBD infused lotion can help relieve dry skin. For best results, apply it after you’ve taken a hot shower. Hot water will open up your pores so that your skin can absorb the healing properties much more easily. The CBD infused lotion will not only help your skin retain its moisture, but also encourage the skin cells to repair any damage.
If you have the opposite issue of dry skin, than you probably have oily skin. While oily skin is good for avoiding wrinkles, it can be quite frustrating, and even embarrassing. CBD oil or infused lotion (or soap) inhibits overactive oil production in your skin without drying it out. CBD can also heal and repair damage from blackheads, pimples and acne (which leads us to our next point…)
