The use of CBD is showing a valid role in preventing ageing, maintaining a healthy balance of moisture as well as feeling soft and smooth.
CBD is full of essential fatty acids, omega 6 and omega 3. Essential fatty acids have proven roles in the maintenance of the skins health and appearance.
The chemical make up is similar to the lipids of our skin, so it makes it the perfect substance to easily penetrate through into cells. CBD is not able to reach the bloodstream when applied topically, but when applied generously it will work on surface and interact with the cannabinoid receptors nearby.
It can moisturize and bring beneficial nutrients between the cells as the essential fatty acids are absorbed.
CBD also contains vitamin D, which is required for the absorption of calcium. As well as vitamin E, and other vitamins of the B complex they provide great nutritional value to the skin. This in turn maintains youthful vitality and reduces acne, abrasions, psoriasis and eczema.
The anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties in the cannabinoids, Terpenes and other compounds found in CBD oil also have a role in anti-ageing and skin health, when applied internally or topically.
Antioxidants in CBD are able to bond with free radicals, stopping oxidative stress therefore DNA damage. A free radical is an unstable atom or group of atoms that has an unpaired electron. If it is unpaired, it makes it chemically reactive. It will try and use an electron from another molecule to stabilize itself. So if CBD can help and provide this missing bond it is going to help keep cells stable.
Regarding the anti-inflammatory properties, we know that skin ageing and inflammation are closely linked. It relaxing the skin, prevents drying of the skin, helps repair damaged skin and reduces healing time.
