The skin is our body’s largest organ. It is a source of hormones, has it’s own immune system, and contains an abundance of sensory nerves.
Recent studies have found the existence of the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in the skin. The main purpose of the ECS in the skin is to maintain the balance of skin functions such as reproduction, differentiation, and immune competence.
The skin relies on homeostasis, or balance, of skin cell function. Just as taking CBD internally helps to maintain homeostasis within our bodies, applying CBD topically controls the balance of skin cell function.
The potential anti-seizure, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and neuroprotective properties of CBD has gotten recent attention for internal uses, but not to be overlooked is the cannabinoids ability to potentially improve the health and appearance of skin, hair, and nails when applied topically.
Topical are applied right to trouble areas so that the CBD oil can work directly where it is needed most. With CBD topicals, the healing-derived nutrients are almost immediately absorbed directly through the skin, allowing them to target the affected area for quicker and more focused effects.
Hemp oil has been dubbed as “natures most perfectly balanced oil” because it contains Omega 3, Omega 6, vitamins, minerals, proteins and other fatty acids which are key ingredients in maintaining the health of you skin.
Which topical product is right for you?
The benefits of hemp oil on the skin extend to lotion, creams, spray, and balm hemp-based products. The type of product you chose will depend on the desired outcome, and where the product will be applied.
For example hemp cream makes a great all-over skin care product for the face and body, while the consistency of a hemp balm makes it better suited for targeting specific areas.
Whether you use lotions, balms, creams or oil for skin care, selecting hemp-based products that contain lab tested all natural ingredients is key to ensuring quality , non toxic products.
