Why do we need to take care of our skin? The skin is the largest part of the body, which is exposed to constant damaging factors throughout life. The condition of the skin largely depends on age, nutrition and lifestyle. Its healthy and flowering appearance is the result of well-being and constant care. The face is the most open part of the skin, and therefore it needs extra care.
Peculiar facts about the skin:
- We have about 5 million hairs;
- The total area of the skin is roughly 1.5 square meters;
- 60% moisture;
- Approximately 5 million pores;
- 200 receptors per sq.mm;
- The average thickness is about 1-2 mm;
- Rougher and thicker on the soles, thinner and more transparent on the eyelids;
- An average of 18 kg of keratinized and re-replaced skin during a person’s life.
The skin consists of three layers, two of which are directly responsible for its appearance – dermis and epidermis.
The inner layer of the skin consists of special cells – fibroblastic that produce collagen and elastin. Collagen gives the skin the necessary density, and elastin – elasticity, ability to stretch and reduce. Derma is replete with blood vessels that nourish the skin, and it contains sebaceous glands that secrete a natural “cream” that moisturizes and protects the skin.
The upper layer of the epidermis is the layer, with which the epidermis forms a visible outer layer of the skin. In the boundary zone between the dermis and the epidermis, there is the formation of new cells, which in the process of development are promoted into the outer layer.
Often, people do not think about their skin, pay little attention to it and believe that the skin on the face and body is less important, for example than the stomach or liver. But this is a big misconception. Skin is an organ! Same as the lungs, the liver. And like any organ, it requires proper care and nourishment. In addition to aesthetic beauty and enthusiastic views of the opposite sex, your skin is an important organ responsible for your well-being, health and mood.
How CBD can be relevant to our skincare routine?
Lately, it seems that the Internet is only discussing CBD. Wherever we look, there is advertising and debate about this relatively new product on the market. The substance exists in many different forms: tinctures, capsules, lotions, hemp flowers in its natural form, as well as various types of cosmetic products. In this article, we’ll try to help you understand and get to know some of the properties of CBD that are important when caring for the skin of the face and body.
CBD and anti-ageing effect
If we have not yet come across such information, we are happy to inform you that CBD, when used in the form of tincture, has antioxidant effects. These antioxidants can help slow down the ageing process with regular use. There are also various CBD creams and face lotions that are said to help get rid of wrinkles, bumps in complexion and even dull skin. If you go to the nearest cosmetics store, you will also find many different skincare products that are filled with antioxidants.
CBD interaction with sensitive skin
Cosmetic products containing CBD are also great for sensitive skin. It is well known that this ingredient soothes the skin, but the most important thing is how quickly it happens. If your skin is irritable and you suffer from redness, CBD will benefit in this situation.
Even if you do not suffer from problems with sensitive skin, you will still feel the calming effect and will enjoy it. You can also use similar products with dry lip skin to prevent them from cracking.
CBD against Acne
Finally, some people use CBD to fight against problems with acne. At the moment, research in this area continues, but it has been proven that this compound has an anti-inflammatory effect. Acne is always unpleasant. They create discomfort and affect your self-confidence. Unfortunately, even in the 21st century, it is not easy to get rid of acne. There are many products on the market that are struggling with this problem. However, it is not easy to find products which are good enough to fight acne effectively. We do not claim that CBD is one exceptional remedy that will solve the issue in one day. However, scientific research has proven that the anti-inflammatory features of a natural product have a very positive effect on the skin.
Forms in which CBD is available
