CBD Lotion: 7 Benefits of Using It

Author: Jason Beverly

CBD (Cannabidiol) has become more popular each year due to its plethora of health benefits, which aids people in resolving some of their health problems. Also, CBD comes in many forms, making it versatile and convenient for many people.

If you’re new to using CBD or is still planning to start, do note that it’s sourced from cannabis and hemp plants and are believed to have various health benefits, especially with the endocannabinoid system. Your body’s endocannabinoid system is responsible for maintaining your body’s homeostasis.

Aside from internal illnesses that many people suffer every year, skin conditions had also become rampant. To fight off these conditions, people resort to CBD since it can promote healthier skin, too. Due to its effectiveness and ability to enhance skin conditions, not to mention that it only has few to no side effects, products like CBD lotion have become one of the popular products that people use.

Unlike other forms of CBD, CBD lotions and creams aren’t ingested, but rather applied to the external parts of your body, like your lips, face, and any affected area of your skin. But that doesn’t mean that their effectiveness has lessened. Each CBD form comes with different consumption methods, different dosages, and different target areas in which it takes effect.

CBD lotion focuses more on promoting healthy skin and alleviate skin conditions. As your guide, here are the seven benefits of using CBD lotion when used as part of your daily skincare regimen.

1. Serves as An Anti-aging and Prevents Wrinkles

When you have dry skin, wrinkles, and your fine lines are easily visible, especially if you’ve had too much exposure to the sun for the past years, using CBD lotion helps regulate your skin’s oil production, reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

CBD lotion will serve as a moisturizer to prevent your skin from drying. Aside from that, it also contains nutrients and vitamins that are good for your skin’s health. This will help make sure that your skin stays glowing, young, and healthy.

2. Relieves Acne Problems

One of the most frequent skin conditions that almost everyone has been through is acne. Whether you’re in your teenage years or an adult, acne issues can happen anytime. That’s why many people look out for various skin products in hopes of alleviating their acne problems.

One of the useful products to help you with your acne is CBD lotion. It’s also one of the highlighted benefits that you can hear from any CBD advertising. CBD lotion is rich in fatty acids that are essential to keep your skin moisturized. Furthermore, unlike other moisturizers, CBD oil has the capacity to go deeper into your pores. This will help normalize your skin and get rid of inflammation brought by acne’s swelling and redness.

3. Helps Ease Rashes and Burns

You may be suffering from allergies to a particular food that results in skin rashes. You may also be suffering from burns due to too much sun exposure. To soothe these, you can generously apply CBD lotion and cream to the affected skin area. Due to the cool moisturizing effects of CBD, it’s been known to be an efficient natural emollient.

4. Alleviates Discomfort Brought by Arthritis

To start, arthritis is a condition that doesn’t only affect adults or older people. In fact, it’s one of the leading causes of disability that has affected many people regardless of age. One of the significant causes of arthritis is the inflammation of your joints, which can be very painful, especially during intense movements.

To ease the pain, you can directly apply CBD lotion to the affected muscle area or skin and massage it. CBD will quickly penetrate through the pores of your skin and help alleviate the pain caused by arthritis. CBD lotion isn’t meant to entirely cure arthritis, but it’s beneficial in supporting the joint and mobility issues you’re experiencing.

Also, don’t forget to always consult with your doctor first when you’re planning to try new skin supplements and other skincare needs.

5. Reduces Muscle and Joint Pain

Sometimes, you may experience muscle and joint pain not only due to arthritis but because of your work or intense physical exercises. This is because standing or doing intense activities for long periods can cause muscle and joint pains at the end of the day.

To alleviate body and muscle pain, massage the painful areas with CBD lotion. Doing this regularly can help improve your muscle function and decrease your chances of experiencing muscle pain despite your daily duties.

6. Reduces Inflammation of Skin Issues

Other skin issues that have affected millions of people are Psoriasis and Eczema.

  • Psoriasis is an inflammatory and autoimmune skin condition in which your skin cells have an abnormal and rapid growth, causing your skin to have red, painful, and scaly patches. This itchy and disruptive skin condition is incurable, but the symptoms can be made easier to cope with when you apply CBD lotion.
  • Eczema is another skin condition in which a person suffers pain and itchiness brought by allergens from the air and other substances. Your skin will feel so itchy that you’d almost feel like you’re burning. Dealing with this skin condition for a long time may also have an emotional effect on you since its unbearable itchiness can cause frustration and temper loss.

CBD lotion isn’t meant to cure Eczema, but it’s a useful product to help soothe the pain and itchiness while, at the same time, adding moisture to your skin, preventing further allergic reaction from the air and other substance.

7. Balances Skin Complexion

As mentioned earlier, CBD contains various health benefits for your body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). Some of those benefits include maintaining the hydration of your skin’s ECS and making sure that no excess oil is produced. The lesser oil, the fewer your patchy spots will be and the more balanced is your skin complexion.

Using CBD lotion as a moisturizer will also help maintain your skin’s smoothness and prevent your skin from experiencing dryness and itchiness even when exposed to the sun all day.

Wrapping Up

While further research is still ongoing, CBD has been skyrocketing for years since it had helped many people deal with their health issues and other inflammatory conditions. That’s why, over time, they have included CBD as part of their daily regimen.

Overall, CBD products may promote healthier skin and reduce the severity of symptoms for some skin conditions. Again, don’t forget to consult your doctor before using any CBD product.
