CBD 101

Everything You Need to Know

CBD has become a trendy term in the beauty industry these days, but there's a reason for that: it works! CBD offers plenty of benefits for your skin, and when it's combined with the other ingredients found in Ópalens' products, the results are undeniable. With this in mind, let's take a deep dive into the world of CBD—beauty-style!

What is CBD?

Let's start with the obvious question: what exactly is CBD oil?

CBD is the shorthand term for cannabidiol, which is an extract that comes from the marijuana plant. Unlike THC, which is the substance that gets people high, CBD isn't psychoactive. Instead, it's the laid-back part of the plant that delivers lots of health and wellness without any of those unwanted side effects. It's found its way into medications, topical pain relievers, anti-anxiety formulations, and now, beauty products.

Some people think CBD oil and hemp seed oil are the same thing, but that's actually not true. Hemp seed oil is produced by cold-pressing the seeds of the cannabis plant. Products that contain hemp seed oil are rich in several vitamins, as well as omega fatty acids. Hemp seed oil, however, does not contain CBD. CBD, on the other hand, is an extract from the leaves, flowers, and stalks of the cannabis plants. According to skincare expert Dr. Jennifer Vickers, "Products with CBD oil have more significant regenerative, anti-aging, and anti-inflammatory effects than those products made with hemp oil."

Why You Should Add CBD to Your Skincare Routine

Now let’s get to the good stuff: CBD in skincare products. People have begun to associate CBD oil with the benefits it has for people with certain medical conditions, but this magical elixir is just now finding its way into the beauty industry. And it's about time! CBD's soothing properties can help minimize breakouts and reduce redness, thanks to its properties that naturally protect the skin. Recent findings also show that CBD might possibly aid in decreasing excessive sebum oil production, as well as offsetting other triggers of acne. CBD has also been shown to help heal sun damage from the free radicals that are around us every day.

In other words, if you're looking for more beautiful skin that puts your best face forward to the world, CBD oil can help erase damage from the past while making your future skin more supple and stunning.

What Benefits does CBD have for Skin Care?

Don't be afraid of the idea of putting CBD oil on your face. On the surface, it may sound like the last thing you'd want to do because who wants to have an oily exterior?! Luckily, that's nothing to worry about because it feels like any other product you'd put on during your normal beauty routine. In fact, it's far less messy than other oils while providing far more skincare benefits. When it reacts with your skin, it unlocks a receptor in the body, causing a series of reactions from head to toe, stimulating more stunning and glowing skin.

If you suffer from acne or problematic skin conditions, CBD can help reduce oil production, which helps keep pores from clogging and turning into pimples and zits. And because it's known for its anti-inflammatory properties, it's great for people who have sensitive skin or those who may experience rashes and breakouts from certain skincare products. Of course, many of us have sun damage and pollution damage from over the years. CBD oil happily steps in and helps skin rebound back to its youthful glow.
