Surprising Benefits of CBD on the Skin

CBD is known for its anti-inflammatory and stress-relieving properties, but it also can be an effective tool for relieving common skin problems. By applying CBD products directly to your skin, you’ll start to see a difference in your complexion.

Reduces Acne

When dirt, oil, and dead skin cells get trapped beneath your pores, it leads to a blockage of bacteria. This, in turn, causes acne. CBD can prohibit oil production. By reducing oil production, bacteria isn’t as likely to clog up your pores and cause acne. It also soothes the skin and reduces redness, so your breakouts aren’t as visible. CBD can also help calm skin inflammation which is another variable that can lead to acne.


Over time, your skin will start to lose its moisture and elasticity as you age. This can cause wrinkles, redness, and dullness in your skin. CBD oil is known for being ultra-hydrating which can keep your skin looking great. It also contains healthy fatty acids which will ensure your skin stays fresh and young. It can be especially effective if you use CBD oil with other anti-aging skincare products like sunscreen.

Alleviates Dryness

As mentioned above, CBD oil is very hydrating. It’s one of the best solutions for combating dryness and can even relieve itchiness too.

Soothes Sensitive Skin

CBD has numerous soothing properties. If you have sensitive skin and experience any redness and inflammation, CBD oil can be a helpful solution.

Choosing CBD Skin Care

There are multiple ways to apply CBD to your skin. You can choose a CBD moisturizer, which is formulated with phytocannabinoid-rich hemp extract to bring balance to the endocannabinoid system. There’s also a CBD face serum, which helps with pigmentation balance, smooth skin, and wrinkles. Made By Hemp also has a face cleanser, which gives you the benefits of CBD while also removing your makeup and cleansing your face.
