Quickly approaching, if it hasn’t already settled in where you live, the 2020-2021 winter season brings with it a double dose of threats that are bound to do a number on your skin. With COVID-19 precautions that call for plenty of hand washing, combined with the traditional toll that cold, dry weather and constant indoor heating takes on skin health, your skin is practically begging for some additional TLC this season.
Why Does Your Skin Suffer During The Winter Months?
As the last leaves of autumn drop right along with the temperature, so does the moisture-rich humidity. With little moisture in the air, your skin’s oils literally evaporate without any natural way to replenish the much needed hydration that makes skin soft and smooth in the spring and summer. Making matters worse this year is the need to wash or sanitize pretty much anytime you leave the house. Overwashing, antiseptics, soap suds, even constant scrubbing breaks down the outermost layer of your skin that protects against cold, wind, sun, and bacteria. These factors combined have a tendency to leave skin dry, flaky, cracked, and irritated.
How CBD Aids Skin Health & Appearance
There are plenty of plant-based, natural allies that combat overwashing and the brutal winter elements. None is more effective than CBD. A naturally-occurring compound found in industrial hemp, CBD or cannabidiol works in a number of ways to restore and maintain skin health and appearance.
The root of most skin issues is caused by imbalances. These imbalances are typically initiated by external factors, like weather, bacteria, and pollution, or internal factors, like poor diet, lack of sleep or stress. CBD is known to renew balance within each skin layer by interacting with your endocannabinoid system’s skin receptors. This cellular communication signals to your skin that something is off and that a functional correction is necessary. These balancing corrections include healthy cell turnover, regulation of new cell growth, and proper hormone production and release. With a naturally calming effect on skin chemistry, CBD also helps to minimize inflammation and stress that often leads to issues such as irritation, cracking and breakouts.
Additionally, CBD contains many restorative and nourishing properties that reverse skin damage and replenish the look and feel of your skin. For example, CBD is known to have more powerful antioxidant properties than vitamin A, C, and E. These antioxidants counter oxidative stress leading to healthy collagen and hormone production which helps to minimize wrinkles and restore suppleness and skin tone.
