CBD is our favorite ingredient for sensitive and hard to deal with skin. It normalizes skin cell growth to reduce redness, swelling, and inflammatory acne. It produces the same anti-inflammatory effects as corticosteroids (used to treat eczema and psoriasis) without the negative side effects. We especially love it in our skincare products because of how gentle and effective it is.
Doctor Babor makes one of our go-to CBD lines. Their Phyto CBD Serum is our favorite because of how lightweight and silky it is. It calms, protects and nourishes. If you want to take it a step above, use their Phyto CBD Cream after - it's a rich, thick cream that is made from 98% naturally derived ingredients. It contains pre- and probiotics, CBD, Cannabis Sativa Oil, Squalane and Ceramides to reduce redness and calm skin. Babor's Regional Educator Andrea Arni swears by the stuff. "Due to my travel schedule, I go to a lot of cold regions - the weather is constantly changing and the CBD cream is able to absorb efficiently and give the nourishment that calms and soothes skin," she says. "The molecules mimic that of our skin cells and fit together like puzzle pieces."
For dark spots and hyperpigmentation, Antedotum's Firming Elixir Serum is designed to aid collagen restoration and tighten skin. The serum contains full-spectrum CBD and has one of the highest concentrations of cannabinoids, including both CBD and CBG.
One of our favorite (and overall best-smelling) serums is June's Soothing Serum. It's a beautiful blend of natural plant oils and botanical actives, including 500mg of CBD. Shea Oil, Macadamia Oil, Evening Primrose, Chia Seed, Carrot Oil, Sunflower Oil and Calendula Flower Extract are some of the botanicals and oils in this lightweight formula. Since it's oil based, you should use it after a water-based serum or essence.
One of the best-selling face oils on the market is The Feelist's Most Wanted Radiant Facial Oil, packed with 500mg of Broad Spectrum CBD. Oils like Jojoba, Marula, Rosehip & Evening Primrose provide essential fatty acids that restore and recharge skin. Dry skin victims will love this oil as it restores your natural sebum levels.
