Cannabidiol in anti-aging cosmetics.
Who doesn’t want their skin to stay youthful, smooth and firm for a lifetime? In principle, this is not given to people, because our skin ages with us. There are several factors that are responsible for this and some of them are difficult to counteract. This includes, for example, a genetic predisposition to the appearance of wrinkles and blemishes on the skin and the aging process itself. Several factors of skin aging can be influenced. These include diet, fluid intake, exercise, how we treat our skin and body in general, our sleep behavior, stress, and sometimes even environmental influences. The active substance cannabidiol (CBD), derived from the hemp plant, can act on several influencing factors and support our anti-aging skin care.
Positive and negative anti-aging methods.
Over the millennia of human civilization, humans have become very resourceful when it comes to hiding their age or at least looking a little younger. In some cases, this refers to very extreme measures that cannot be ignored. For example, pollutants (botox) are introduced, which are by no means harmless and can have severe long-term effects.
Another extreme is surgical skin tightening. Since it robs people of their skin, the logical consequence is that the skin just gets thinner. This is probably the least unpleasant thing that can happen during such an operation. People who are less inclined to take drastic measures try to fight the visible signs of aging with cosmetics instead. Lotions, creams, and ointments love to advertise their purported anti-aging effects, but not all of them can actually be put into practice. However, cosmetic products and skin care products containing CBD have some arguments on their side that may justify the anti-aging effect of the skin.
What properties make CBD a weapon against skin aging?
Cannabidiol is an antioxidant. This effect most clearly speaks of its suitability in anti-aging cosmetics. CBD is one of the most powerful antioxidants we know. Free radicals that act on our body and skin under the influence of the environment, accelerating the breakdown of collagen, bind to CBD and, so to speak, are rendered harmless. There is also a link between the human endocannabinoid system (ECS) and the production of oil by our cutaneous sebaceous glands. Consuming cannabinoids like CBD can stimulate the body to produce its own oil, leaving skin feeling fresher and fuller.
Direct and indirect measures against aging with CBD.
Creams, tinctures, ointments, lotions, or other cosmetic products that contain CBD can directly damage the skin when applied topically. Inflammation, redness, or dryness of the skin can be treated immediately. The skin is quickly supplied with CBD and other ingredients. But consumption of cannabidiol, such as in CBD oil, can be a valuable ingredient in anti-aging treatments. Its calming and relaxing effect reduces stress symptoms, which are also harmful to the skin.
The improved sleep quality thanks to CBD also makes us look fresher and younger. In addition, CBD also has vasodilating properties. This means that the vessels dilate and become more flexible. This allows the blood to circulate better and deliver the active ingredients everywhere. It also benefits the skin. Therefore, if you want to act as effectively and naturally as possible against skin aging, you combine the use of care products containing CBD with an internal intake of CBD. This way, you will get the maximum anti-aging effect that cannabis has to offer.
