Trend Prediction: CBD Infused Facials On The Rise

I am sure we've all heard the buzz about using CBD supplements, tinctures, gummies, oils and topicals for its amazing healing benefits. Cannabis has been used for thousands of years by different cultures for a variety of reasons, but let me be clear for the purpose of this article. CBD is part of the cannabis plant and does not contain any properties that will actually get you "high". THC is the compound found in cannabis that will get that job done. Today, we are going a little deeper into CBD's magical properties to transform skin.



Fun fact: Cannabinoids are found both naturally in our bodies and in the cannabis plant. Endocannabinoids are produced naturally in the human body and help with mood, sleep, inflammatory response, appetite and metabolism. Just to name a few. CBD however is a phytocannabinoid, produced by the cannabis plant and there are over 100 different cannabinoids - CBD is form of cannabinoid and so is THC. CBD binds to the endocannabinoids in our bodies to enhance and influlence its effects... pretty cool huh?!





So what does that mean for the future of skincare and skin services?


IMO CBD skincare is in its teenage years of development. There is still so much to discover with CBD and gain a deep understanding how CBD can benefit our skin function. Let's tap into a few known benefits from this compound.

  1. Anti-Inflammatory Properties: CBD has demonstrated anti-inflammatory effects, which can be beneficial for conditions characterized by inflammation, such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis. By reducing inflammation, CBD may help alleviate redness, swelling, and discomfort associated with these skin conditions.

  2. Antioxidant Effects: CBD is known for its antioxidant properties. Antioxidants help combat oxidative stress caused by free radicals, which can contribute to premature aging and skin damage. By neutralizing free radicals, CBD may support the skin in maintaining a healthy and youthful appearance.

  3. Balancing Effects on Sebum Production: CBD has been suggested to help regulate sebum production. Sebum is an oily substance produced by the skin's sebaceous glands. Imbalances in sebum production can contribute to conditions like acne. CBD may help balance sebum production, potentially reducing the risk of acne development.

  4. Interaction with Endocannabinoid System (ECS): The skin has its own endocannabinoid system with receptors that interact with cannabinoids like CBD. The ECS plays a crucial role in maintaining homeostasis, and by interacting with these receptors, CBD may contribute to the overall balance and health of the skin.

This last little fact is my favorite. When your body is capable of healing on its own through natural ingredients, foods, and products - I get really psyched about it. Our bodies are machines that need maintenance and it's our responsibility to help maintain balance any way possible. #Endocannabinoids and CBD are obviously a perfect pairing for harmony within the body, so just imagine the benefits for your skin!



Clients are currently dealing with a plethora of skin conditions (that can be nurtured with the right services and at home care). What we know about #CBD and its benefits is that it's well tolerated, even for the most sensitive of skin. Estheticians are catching onto this skin trend quickly and are starting to offer this as a new service.
