CBD usage is one of the effective methods for acne treatment.
How CBD help?
Acne is a skin condition that causes spots and pimples, especially on the face, shoulders, back, neck, chest, and upper arms. It’s caused when a pore on your skin becomes clogged with dead skin cells. Bacteria sometimes plays a role too, inflaming the skin until it’s red and swollen.
Over the last couple of years, it has been seen that CBD-rich extracts could be a great topical treatment for acne. CBD have anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and sebum-reducing properties that could work together to fight acne. CBD can increase the levels of our own cannabinoids, such as AEA, by stopping them from breaking down. AEA, at high levels, has been found to reduce the production of sebum. Sebum keeps our skin in good condition at normal levels, but in excess it blocks the pores of our skin and can cause acne.
CBD is a very potent anti-inflammatory. It’s also chock-full of antioxidants and omega fatty acids. All three of these properties make it an excellent choice for skin health.
CBD oil has been making headlines as the “holy grail for acne treatment”.
