How To Fight Winter With CBD Skincare
When it comes to cannabis, the plant we all know and love, there seems to be no end to the benefits it can bring to our daily lives. With its many recreational and medical uses becoming more accepted, cannabis also shows great promise in what it can do for our skin! And as winter is right around the corner (sorry) let’s do a quick dive into how CBD can mitigate some of the ways our skin gets damaged by the cold weather.
Winter Skin 101
I’m sure many of us have experienced irritated skin during the colder months, whether it be dry, flaky, or tight. In the wintertime, the cold, harsh winds, and dry air can make our skin feel tight and downright uncomfortable. This, along with the contrast in temperature going from indoors to outdoors can really dry out our skin – making it difficult for the skin to naturally maintain its hydration levels. In short, wintertime creates a general lack of moisture in the air, and that lack of moisture makes your skin very unhappy.
Wellness Is A Work of Skincare, Skincare is a Work of Art
Taking excellent care of our bodies largest organ, our skin, is important no matter the season. By simple preparation, planning and practice it’s not hard to get started on a lifelong path of taking care of your body from the skin in.
