What is CBD skin care?
CBD skin care refers to any number of CBD products that are meant to be used topically. This may refer to skincare products like CBD creams, CBD oil, CBD rubs, or CBD gels.
More research is needed to truly understand how CBD for skin may affect certain skin diseases. But as for incorporating CBD oil into your latest skincare routine, let's take a look at everything hemp seed oil has to offer.
Why use CBD skin care products?
Below are just some of the potential effects of CBD oils that make them a hot commodity among beauty products and skincare products. Plus, we think you'll be surprised to see what scientists are saying about these disputed claims.
May contain anti-inflammatory properties
CBD oil has long been studied for its ability to reduce inflammation. And when it comes to certain skin disorders and skin irritation, many are turning to CBD for its promising anti-inflammatory effects.
Take acne, for example. Acne occurs when our sebaceous glands mix with dead skin cells, dirt, and other impurities, clogging our pores and causing unsightly pimples.
Needless to say, acne spots themselves are inflamed areas on the skin barrier. CBD oil's proposed anti-inflammatory properties are thought to reduce the inflammation associated with acne.
But it may go even further than that. A 2016 study reviewed cannabis plants for their potential antibacterial and antifungal effects.
This may be yet another way CBD oil attempts to tackle acne by reducing infections from dirt and other pollutants. Of course, further research is needed to back these skin care claims. But many have continued to turn to a CBD product or two to quell their specific skin problems.
May reduce inflammation in certain skin conditions
While dry skin is considered a specific skin type, dryness is also something that affects everyone at one time or another. But rather than reach for beauty products with traditional hydrating ingredients, many have turned to CBD oil and hemp oil instead.
A 2020 study found hemp oil to have potential therapeutic effects on those with sensitive skin as well as those with conditions like eczema, psoriasis, and atopic dermatitis. This study in particular also researched hemp oil for its potential ability to stimulate the growth of hair follicles.
May offer certain antioxidant properties
In addition to hemp plants' proposed anti-inflammatory properties, researchers have also investigated hemp's antioxidant profile. In fact, a 2017 study actually highlights the antioxidant properties of CBD, noting how CBD may combat signs of aging as it reduces oxidative stress.
Furthermore, the antioxidant profile of the hemp plant may also extend to CBD's ability to regulate oil production while hydrating dry or dehydrated skin.
Suffice it to say that CBD's potential effects are highly sought-after in the beauty and skincare industries. So what is the best CBD product out there for you?
Best topical CBD products to try

Soothing aromas of both lavender and rose will give you pause as you step into this warm oasis and leave any stress from the day behind. We decided to use full-spectrum hemp for this formula so you could soak up all additional cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant.
As these cannabinoids work together to create the entourage effect, you'll get to experience the full effect of CBD while treating your skin with a luxurious bath treatment.
