CBD will improve sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, rosacea, acne, enlarged pores… who says you can’t have it all in one powerhouse ingredient?
Studies have shown that the endocannabinoid system has a part to play in the sebaceous glands that regulate the oil our facial skin produces. Fine lines and wrinkles are partly due to dehydrated sebaceous glands and the lack of oil produced as we age. By applying CBD on the skin, your skin is better able to regulate oil secretion decreasing signs of aging and improving overall skin clarity.

Like anything else in life, moderation is key. By keeping things simple in your skincare routine you will experience the best results. Aging is inevitable, but slowing down the process is a choice. By not hyperfocusing on aging and embracing the point of the journey you are in, you will naturally glow from within.
