CBD for acne

Tuesday February 16, 2021

Acne is a common skin condition most people will experience at some point in their lives and a question often asked is “what are the benefits of CBD for acne?”.

First, let’s look at what acne is. When the skin overproduces oil, pores can clog up with dead skin, oil and bacteria. This leads to spots, blackheads and whiteheads on your face, chest or back. Acne can also be caused by hormone changes and can be triggered by stress.

Acne is most often associated with teenagers, but for some the condition persists into adulthood.

Severe acne at any stage of life can knock your confidence, make you anxious and leave you withdrawing from social situations.

There are many over-the-counter products and prescription medications to combat acne. If you are suffering from acne you are likely to have tried a large number of them. But have you heard of the skincare benefits of CBD?

The benefits of CBD for acne

CBD has benefits on so many levels; from its calming effects sought by suffers of anxiety, to its anti-inflammatory properties that are believed to help with arthritis. It is now fast becoming a popular wellbeing ingredient in skincare ranges. You will find CBD in all sorts of beauty products including creams, face masks and sprays.

More definitive research needs to take place to fully understand CBD’s effects on the skin, but initial results are promising. Studies show that CBD inhibits oil production and has anti-inflammatory effects on oil-producing glands.

Acne is not the only skin condition which may be successfully treated by taking CBD supplements. Studies also show that there is therapeutic potential for treatment of psoriasis.

Which CBD products can I use for acne?

As all our CBD products contain CBD at effective levels, the product you chose is down to personal preference. You may find that one works better for you than another, or that it is more pleasurable or convenient to take.

Our luxuriously silky CBD cream is popular with our customers with skin conditions. The cream moisturises skin whilst delivering the benefits of CBD. It is quickly absorbed and does not leave a greasy residue.

CBD oil could also be a good option for you. Taking CBD oil under the tongue gives the best absorption into your body. Additionally, it is easier to track how much CBD you are taking.
