Celebrities LOVE CBD Skincare Products! But Is Cannabis REALLY Good For Your Skin?

CBD is surging in popularity among health and wellness product consumers. New brands and inventive products seem to materialize every day suddenly. At the same time, established cannabis companies are continually expanding their CBD offerings.

In turn, a growing number of celebrities are jumping onto the CBD bandwagon, which is really no surprise. As looming legalization has moved cannabis closer to the mainstream, plenty of notable media figures have sought to capitalize on this booming trend.

This is partly because, in contrast to cannabis’s other well-known ingredient, THC, CBD has zero intoxicating properties. As such, CBD has far less stigma attached. In fact, CBD continues to receive convincing endorsements from countless medical practitioners praising its therapeutic benefits.

All of which has loads of celebrities lining up to lend their name to new CDB products. And as it happens, CBD-infused skincare products, in particular, are a rising trend.

Which Celebrities Have Launched CBD Skincare Products Thus Far?

Kristen Bell – star of TV’s The Good Place + Veronica Mars, not to mention several Hollywood Blockbuster movies – recently debuted her branded CBD skincare line, Happy Dance. Launched in partnership with Lord Jones, currently a highly fashionable CBD company, Ms. Bell’s new includes CBD Body Butter, Coconut Melt, and Bath Bomb.

Kourtney Kardashian – middle sis to Kim Kardashian and a Reality TV icon in her own right – launched her own wellness company, Poosh. And in partnership with Hora Skin Care, Kourtney is marketing a Hyaluronic Halo + CBD Serum. Which, apparently, is a long way to say she has a CBD-infused facial cream.

Kathy Ireland – onetime Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition cover model and occasional actress turned uber-successful entrepreneur – launched her own wellness company, Vertical Wellness, earlier this year and announced plans to offer a full line of CBD-infused skincare products.

Gwyneth Paltrow – Hollywood royalty, movie star, onetime Brad Pitt GF, and the former Mrs. Chris Martin (lead singer of the massively popular band, Coldplay) – doesn’t have her own CBD skincare line (yet!). But Paltrow swears by CBD-infused skincare products and recently invested in Cann, a cannabis-infused beverage maker.

Now, celebrity endorsements are certainly fancy and all. But there’s still the lingering question that we’ve been wondering about here at…

What Does CBD ACTUALLY Do For Your Skin?

To answer this query, we should start by defining WHY folks turn to skincare products in the first place.

The skincare industry, which includes cosmetics, generates many hundreds of billions of dollars in annual revenue.

Mostly because people, especially ladies, want to look good. And to do so, you’ve gotta take good care of your skin.

Now, speaking about skincare in general, the two most frequently reported skin problems are… Acne and signs of premature aging.

So, how does CBD address these issues?

Largely due to cannabis’s illegal status, there’s not a boatload of research on the subject. But as legalization looms on the horizon, medical science is taking a closer look at CBD's potential therapeutic applications!

And here’s what ongoing research has revealed thus far:

CBD helps regulate skin oil production – The overproduction of sebum, which is the technical term for the greasy oil that coats your face, is a primary contributor to acne. Meanwhile, according to a 2014 study, CBD is believed to reduce inflammation in the cells that generate sebum and limit its production.

CBD helps reduce inflammation – CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties can help reduce the skin irritation, pain, and swelling associated with acne breakouts and conditions like eczema and psoriasis.

CBD helps revive dehydrated skin – According to a 2009 study, CBD has shown to help nourish, revive, and rehydrate flaky, dried-out skin.

Are CBD Skincare Products Right For You?

While CBD’s skincare products are purposed to offer tons of therapeutic potential, there’s no guarantee how CBD-infused products will impact YOUR skin.

Thus, as with most skincare products, it really depends on the user. Everyone has different reactions to various applications.

So, if you’re interested in finding out more, your best bet is to experiment.
