Many Americans suffer from unsightly skin issues which can be annoying and embarrassing. There are many different pharmaceutical creams and capsules which promise to relive symptoms but can have nasty and unwanted side effects.
CBD has become a groundbreaking treatment as it has little to no side effects, and it can be taken internally or applied topically. There are many clinical trials that are a tribute to CBD’s efficacy in treating many topical skin conditions.
CBD for Rosacea
Rosacea is a skin condition that effects over 16million Americans. It usually appears as redness and swelling on the cheeks and face which can appear as pimples, enlarged blood vessels and a raised rash.
While there is no cure for rosacea it is most commonly treated via antibiotics. As it is not curable the sufferer has to maintain a low dosage course of antibiotics and when ceasing use of antibiotics, the rash and redness often comes back.
Rosacea may present as an acne like rash and can affect women and men of all ages. The exact cause of rosacea is unknown and there is currently no test to diagnose the issue. It is most usually diagnosed by a visual examination by a GP or dermatologist.
Rosacea may be brought on by heat, stress, anxiety, spicy foods and it usually affects people with fair skin/blue eyes between the ages of 30-60 years of age. Symptoms can be brought on by an inflammatory response that is out of balance, CBD for rosacea can be beneficial with its’ anti-inflammatory properties.
Relief from Eczema with CBD
Eczema is a skin condition that is characterized by an itchy red and flaky skin rash. It can often be linked to arthritic conditions. Many people who suffer from eczema have trouble sleeping at night.
Eczema is often described as the body’s inflammatory response which becomes overactive. CBD can circumnavigate this response.
It has been shown to be highly effective in calming symptoms of eczema.
A study conducted in March 2019 shows that CBD can be helpful in reducing inflammation that leads to several inflammatory symptom related skin conditions.
Dermatitis and how CBD can help
Dermatitis is caused by a disruption to the immune system which destroys the skin barrier. This condition leaves the skin dry and itchy and can present itself as a rash and inflammation. When scratched the condition worsens creating a vicious cycle.
Stress and anxiety are thought to play a role in dermatitis and skin conditions. CBD helps by calming the immune response within the body.
CBD also helps by bringing the body in to homeostasis. Many of the body’s essential functions are regulated by the Endocannabinoid System. CBD steps in and supplies the body’s CB1 and CB2 receptors with essential cannabinoids to keep everything running smoothly. CBD has been thought to stimulate the immune system thus helping the body as a first defense. It is important to note that CBD when taken orally or sublingually will have the greatest effect as it will have a higher bioavailability than just treating topically.
Here are some ways to use CBD to assist in getting rid of Skin Conditions:
Topicals (starting at $8)
CBD Topical Salves can really help with two different issues that relate to skin conditions.
Firstly, the CBD in Hempstrax Topical Salve works to relieve the inflammation, itching and redness.
Secondly, as CBD is antimicrobial it can start to work to fight the infection.
Hempstrax Skin Salves soak in quickly and then work to create a protective barrier on the skin to allow the CBD to keep working for many hours.
CBD is anti-inflammatory as it creates a keratinocyte cytokine production to combat inflammation within the skin. CBD can act as a calming agent to prevent itching and redness.
Ensure that the CBD product you are buying contains natural ingredients. If you can find one that uses mainly organic ingredients, even better. Hempstrax uses organic ingredients so you can be assured that there are no nasty fillers or additives that would add to skin distress.
Topical CBD creams can also prove very effective. Hempstrax created a Lavender Body Butter that can be applied directly to the face. All ingredients are organic, and the formulation is vegan. Prices start at $25 for a 2oz Lavender Body Butter.
Hempstrax developed a vegan line of skincare products that are excellent for sensitive skin and those who experience breakouts.
Hempstrax Trio consists of a Toner which contains Alpha Hydroxy derived from plants, a Serum with the addition of Vitamin C and a Rosehip & Hibiscus Face Cream. All are vegan and plant based and have been formulated with sensitive/problem skin in mind. They are Ph Balanced and will work to bring your skin into alignment.
They are nourishing and moisturizing and the addition of CBD helps to create an antibacterial environment. Many of the skin products on the market dry skin out which is the opposite of CBD. CBD seals in moisture and leaves skin revitalized and glowing.
CBD Bath Bombs
Soaking in a hot bath with essential oils and CBD is an ideal way to treat your skin. After all, skin is the largest organ of the body. CBD Bath Bombs are a relaxing and restorative way to nourish and detoxify the skin. Taking a CBD bath will not only relax you it will also help to restore balance and moisture to the skin.
Regular baths with essential oils and CBD can be very beneficial in treating an array of skin conditions, especially eczema.
CBD Tinctures work from the inside out. They start to treat the body internally. CBD works on the Endocannabinoid System and it starts to bring the body into homeostasis.
Hempstrax tinctures are made using organic MCT oil, USA grown CBD Isolate or Distillate extracted using clean CO2 methods and organic steam-distilled, edible essential oils.
Tinctures are an easy and discreet way to receive CBD. They are available in a range of strengths from 500mg – 10,000mg. There are several flavors to choose from: Wild Orange, Lemon/Ginger, Peppermint, Cinnamon, Lavender, Melaleuca and Unflavored.
