By now I’m sure you’ve heard the wonders of CBD, so let’s chat CBD beauty. For the last couple years, CBD oil has continued to trend upwards as more and more people begin discovering its myriad of uses. In beauty, CBD has been found to offer some serious skin benefits such as calming and soothing the skin.
Here’s how I’ve incorporated CBD into my beauty routine >>
What Is CBD?
CBD stands for cannabidiol, which is one of the main active compounds of cannabis derived from hemp plants. It’s often touted for having health benefits such as reducing inflammation and helping to ease anxiety. It does not contain THC, which is the other active compound in cannabis that produces a high effect. Along with health benefits, it offers beauty benefits as well!
CBD Body Care
I’ve mentioned my love for the Kopari Deodorant before and I’m happy to share that they offer a CBD Deodorant(currently on sale!) as well! This aluminum and baking soda free, non-toxic deodorant features coconut water, CBD, and sage oil to combat body odor. It has a soft lavender scent and leaves you feeling fresh all day long.
This naturally-based clean deodorant is perfect for those who experience underarm irritation from shaving and are looking for a soothing formula. I highly recommend giving this deo a try!
Also making my top CBD beauty list is the Avon Veilment CBD collection… yes, Avon has CBD products! The Dry Body Oil feels amazing massaged into skin. For those with fragrance sensitivities, you’ll be happy to discover this product is fragrance-free. It’s lightweight, not greasy and absorbs into skin fairly quickly leaving it feeling hydrated. I love massaging into my arms, shoulders and neck for a relaxing self-massage.
For an extra punch of hydration, I love applying the Soothing & Nourishing Body Cream. This is a concentrated creamy body cream that I like applying after the Dry Body Oil to really seal in moisture. It doesn’t feel greasy and leaves a light geranium scent that is so relaxing.
My hands have been needing some extra moisturizing lately so I’ve been applying the CBD Multi- Balm Stick. It’s so perfect for those super rough spots on the sides of my fingers, my elbows and knees. Since it’s a balm it’s on the greasy side so I recommend applying just before bed.
CBD offers some fantastic skincare benefits as well! The Prima Night Magic Botanical Skin Treatment is a luxe facial oil that packs 150mg of CBD. The brand has since reformulated and now offers the Night Magic with 300 mg of CBD… and new packaging! I am a huge fan of facial oils to help soften and add an extra layer of hydration to skin.
The Night Magic oil also contains prickly pear, avocado and moringa oils to nourish skin. It’s perfect to apply overnight to wake up with beautiful, glowing skin! This is a clean brand so the oil is free of parabens, phthalates, harmful chemicals and is fragrance-free. It truly is magic!
If you’ve been following A Good Hue for awhile, these next two CBD beauty products may look familiar. I love them so much that I just had to share them again! You can read my full review on the Derma E CBD Relief Collection here. What’s to love about these?
Derma E Skin De-Stress Calming CBD Cleanser is ultra-gentle on skin and cleanses well without leaving my skin feeling stripped. In fact, it feels soft and hydrated. If you have sensitive skin, I recommend trying this cleanser!
The Derma E Skin De-Stress Calming CBD Serum contains a similar blend of ingredients and pairs perfectly with the cleanser. I sometimes get redness on my cheeks and this serum helps to soothe my skin and help the redness subside. This has become one of my go-to serums, I absolutely love it!
After using both of these, any redness in my skin subsides. This is mainly due to the pycnogenol and CBD, both of which are rich in antioxidants, as well as soothing aloe vera.
