A few weeks ago I wrote a post introducing you to CBD, a compound extracted from the cannabis plant that is NOT illegal and does NOT get you high. In fact, researchers have found many ways it can actually benefit your health, including relieving pain, easing anxiety and depression, and even promoting heart health. You can read that information-packed post at the link below!
Since then, I’ve learned that CBD is now one of the hottest beauty ingredients on the market. In fact, the American CBD market is expected to reach $16 billion by 2025! Celebrities are talking about it, designers are creating attractive tubes and bottles for CBD products, and well-known beauty companies are adding it to their skin care products. One such company is NxN Beauty, and they recently contacted me to see if I’d be interested in trying some of their new CBD-infused skin care products. They have a long history of combining natural ingredients with skincare technology to create products that are much cheaper than the luxury brands, so I was excited to give them a try!
As a quick refresher in case you didn’t catch my original post about CBD oil, here’s a brief review about what it is and what it can do for your beauty routine.
A Brief Review About CBD
Cannabidiol (or CBD) is one of many cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Unlike THC (which is a separate cannabinoid), CBD has no psychoactive or intoxicating properties. But what it does have is a variety of beneficial properties that people everywhere are buzzing about! In fact, CBD is so popular right now that you can find it in everything from gumdrops to coffee beans!
But today I want to focus on one specific part of our bodies that can benefit from CBD: our skin! Read on to learn about 4 of the best skin-friendly benefits that CBD has to offer!
4 Ways That CBD Can Benefit Your Skin
1. Slows Signs Of Aging
CBD is a powerful antioxidant that may help protect your skin against the oxidative damage of free radicals. Preventing free radical damage can help slow the visible signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles.
2. Reduces Inflammation
CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties are another reason it’s such an exciting product for skin care. It’s also the reason why CBD is popping up in so many face creams, serums, and body lotions. Inflammation, as many of you know, is at the root of many skin issues from acne to aging.
3. Protects The Skin Barrier
CBD oil is rich in fatty acids and vitamins that can nourish and strengthen your skin. And stronger, healthier skin is better at maintaining optimal moisture levels too!
4. Controls Oil Production
Oily skin is the result of overactive sebum production, which is often due to inflammation. The anti-inflammatory properties of CBD could help regulate how much oil your skin is producing, a great help in the fight against acne!
My Favorite CBD Skincare Products
The chance to try out the new CBD skincare products from NxN Beauty was a real treat, because I’m always on the lookout for anything that improves my skin! I was also very impressed with what I learned about the company and their products, like the fact that their products are all cruelty-free, and contain no harmful chemicals, no parabens, no sulfates, and no synthetic colorants. Another bonus for me is that NxN Beauty offers an auto-ship option as well as one-time purchases, which I always appreciate! (I’m all about the “set-it-and-forget-it” lifestyle.)
Here’s a quick rundown of the four CBD skincare products from NxN Beauty that I tried:
First of all, I love the scent of this product! There’s something about the combination of watermelon, rosehip, apple, and lentil fruit extracts that smells divine! Not only does it smell amazing, it also gives my skin just the right amount of moisture to leave my face feeling silky smooth! I definitely think this would work for all skin types.
The Power Detox Mask felt like it really penetrated deep into my pores to clear out all the nasty stuff our skin is exposed to on a daily basis. (That’s something that everyone could benefit from—regardless of skin type!) The natural ingredients felt really good on my skin, and knowing that NxN Beauty CBD is extracted from cannabis plants that are grown and harvested without pesticides or petrochemicals gave me added peace of mind!
Their Zero Gravity Whipped Day Cream made my skin feel super hydrated and helped soften the fine lines and wrinkles on my face. Their patent-pending “whipped” technology allows the moisturizer to absorb much faster than traditional moisturizers, and the addition of 90 milligrams of CBD helps to calm irritated skin and reduce redness.
I’ve only been using this mask for about a month now, but I really like it a lot! You apply it at night and wash it off in the morning. It feels very moisturizing once it’s on, and it leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated in the morning!
