Should I use CBD to treat acne?
Authored By Caitlin Sharkey

We’ve all experienced it – you look in the mirror, and there’s an angry red spot staring back at you. Acne is one of the most common skin complaints, with about 95% of Brits aged between 11 and 30 suffering to some extent.

It is caused by your hormones producing an excessive amount of a substance called sebum, which reacts with dirt and oil inside your pores and irritate your skin. It can also be triggered by inflamed cells known as cytokines, or by bacteria entering your pores and causing them to become blocked.

In recent years, skincare has had a boom in popularity and it can be easy to get overwhelmed by the massive range of products available, and even harder to know what will work for you.

CBD oil is not just a health supplement – studies have shown that it can be incredibly effective in the treatment of acne. Either ingested orally or applied directly to the skin, it can work to prevent your hormones from overproducing sebum.

CBD oil also has an anti-inflammatory effect on your cells, which can stop the acne-causing reaction from your cytokine cells. And finally, CBD oil has been found to have an antibacterial effect on skin too, cleansing the skin and creating a protective barrier.

All in all, CBD is proving itself to be a very effective skincare

It’s important to find the right CBD product for you. Many skincare brands are jumping on the CBD craze, but investigations have found that over a quarter of products are short-changing customers when it comes to the amount of CBD present, which can dramatically change how effective they are.

With our CBD oils, you can be confident that you are receiving the strength and quality of product that you expect. Our CBD tinctures are available in strengths ranging from 600mg to 1800mg so you can alter your dosage according to your needs.

Other skincare products may also contain harsh chemicals and irritants – our CBD oil is guaranteed to be 100% naturally derived ingredients with no unnecessary additives.

If taken orally, in addition to the positive effect on your skin, you will experience the mental and physical benefits that come from taking CBD oil as a regular supplement. You can also try our CBD jelly sweeties or use our CBD bath bombs to treat body acne, while relaxing in the tub and soaking in the healing properties.

CBD is fast becoming a highly-regarded ingredient in skincare, especially when it comes to acne treatment. The number of studies proving the impressive properties of this ingredient are constantly increasing, and people are seeing the real-life benefits.

Starting a new supplement can be daunting, so we recommend starting off gently on a lower dosage to see how it reacts with your skin. You can always adjust the strength when you understand how it interacts with your body.
