How CBD Helps Balance Skin

Our environment is in constant fluctuation, yet we strive to achieve a sense of balance. Our skin is on this same search! People have used plant-based skin remedies for thousands of years to promote healthy, balanced skin. One of CBD’s claims to fame is returning balance to the body when systems become out of sync. CBD has recently come to the forefront of the skincare industry and in this article, we investigate the balancing effects of adding CBD to your skincare routine. 

The CBD and Skin Connection

Cannabidiol, commonly referred to as CBD, is a natural compound derived from hemp. Cannabinoids are produced by both the human body (endocannabinoids) and the hemp plant (phytocannabinoids). Our incredible bodies naturally produce cannabinoids to assist with inflammation, unhealthy cell growth, and a host of other imbalances. Your skin is absolutely packed with cannabinoid receptors. Sometimes, we are not able to produce the necessary levels of our natural cannabinoids in order to maintain homeostasis. In these instances, the phytocannabinoids present in CBD can supplement the deficiency and bring balance back to the body and the skin.

How The ECS is Involved

The root cause of many skin problems is an imbalance of some sort. CBD helps the skin's Endocannabinoid system keep the entire organ balanced and healthy. To jog your memory, the ECS, or the Endocannabinoid System, is a natural biological system in your body that plays a crucial role in health and wellness. The Endocannabinoid System helps regulate your cell functions and restore balance throughout the body. The significance of this role cannot be downplayed. While environmental stressors can put your body out of whack, cannabinoids work to balance critical functions like sleep cycles and pain receptors. Balance is key to whole-body health. 

The existence of the ECS on the skin is linked to major biological processes like proliferation, growth, differentiation, hormone production, hair follicles, and sebaceous glands. It is highly speculated that the principal function of the ECS on the skin is to control the proper and well-balanced growth, differentiation, survival, and competence of skin cells. That's pretty major! A disruption in the balance may lead to a variety of discomforts or even diseases. 

How CBD Helps with Balance

Just like the assistance CBD offers when ingested, it has similar calming benefits when applied topically to your skin. This powerful plant-derived compound engages so harmoniously with the skin that it not only helps calm and soothe irritated skin, but also helps to regulate sebum levels (fighting acne). Sebum is the oil your skin produces to moisturize and help to protect the skin. When your skin is producing too much sebum, the result is oily skin that often becomes prone to acne and blemishes. When you are producing too little sebum, the skin is under-protected and becomes susceptible to dryness. CBD Can help keep your sebum levels balanced!

It can also help fight free radicals to keep skin safe from external stressors that age skin. Whether you experience redness, irritation, dullness, dryness, acne, or simply are looking to keep your skin in its most balanced, healthy state try including CBD in your skincare routine. Balanced skin is happy skin!
