By now, if you have been reading our blog posts—and we can’t thank you enough—our goal is to bring you useful skincare news, skin health tips, and of course, to keep you abreast of the latest skincare product deals and offers. But I’m digressing, if you have been reading our blog, then you should know I’m an advocate for the properties of cannabidiol (CBD).
CBD is a compound found in the cannabis plant which is believed to have a variety of health benefits by interacting with the body's endocannabinoid system, which helps regulate a variety of functions, including skin health.
In recent years, CBD has become increasingly popular as an ingredient – many brands (ourselves included) use CBD oil in our skincare products.
We at ENSO, use cannabidiol because we believe in its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties which not only helps with varying skin conditions and based on feedback from some of our customers, it’s wonderful for sensitive skin.
But these are not just our own personal feelings, there are medical studies and reviews providing the evidence that supports them. For example, studies found how CBD was effective in reducing inflammation, redness and reducing breakouts in acne-prone skin. Another study found that CBD may aid to protect skin from UV damage, but remember, it does not replace the use of sunblock. I’ve mentioned to you how strongly I feel about sunscreen.
In addition to these anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, CBD is also said to have moisturizing and hydrating qualities. This makes it an obvious choice for people with dry, sensitive skin.
When considering trying a CBD facial serum, be it our beautiful Vitamin Renewal Serum or another product, may I suggest that you first, make sure to choose a serum that is made with high-quality CBD oil. Second, and this goes for any new product you introduce to your face, body and/or scalp—be sure to do a patch test of the product, in this case the serum—on a small area of skin before applying it to your entire face. This will help to ensure that you don't have any adverse reactions to the product.
Overall, I love not only how our CBD facial serum makes my own face look and feel, but my heart is full when our customers, our friends and family who have used the serum and share how they are experiencing the positive results.
If you're looking for a natural way to improve the look and feel of your skin, a serum with CBD may be worth considering. Thanks for stopping by!
