You are what you eat. No really, it’s true! Healthy, glowing skin starts with eating foods that are loaded in key nutrients and antioxidants. We’re sure you’ve heard of the omega-3 fatty acids in salmon and the healthy oils in avocados. But our favorite secret ingredient? CBD.
Small but mighty
First of all, what is CBD? CBD, also known as cannabidiol, is extracted from the flowers and leaves of hemp plants. Although it is found in marijuana, by itself, CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning it does not have mind-altering properties or cause a “high” when ingested.
Superpowers for healthy, glowing skin
One of CBD’s most powerful properties is its ability to heal, rejuvenate, and hydrate skin. Studies show that CBD can help fight inflammation, which is the key culprit of acne and acne-related redness. Research also shows that CBD can help soothe skin, normalize skin growth, and balance the oils in our skin by decreasing excess sebum production. Clearer, smoother skin? Yes, please!
CBD is also loaded with antioxidants like vitamin E and vitamin C, which have anti-aging properties and lessen the visibility of wrinkles, fine lines, and dark spots.
Straight to the source
Because of its calming agents, we love integrating CBD in our daily cooking to keep our complexions looking and feeling better.
