CBD for Skincare this Summer

Nov 23, 2021

Unless you live in a location with very little seasonal change, you may notice that summer skincare has unique requirements. Increased UV exposure from longer days and better weather, changes in humidity, outdoor activities and pesky bug bites . . . Taking the good with the bad, summer is still awesome. Your skin can be too!

Topical CBD for Skin in Summer

CBD is a powerful antioxidant that works both internally and topically with the body’s natural endocannabinoid system. Cannabinoid receptors are located all throughout the body, including directly underneath the skin. This means that CBD wastes no time taking action when applied topically.

Free Radicals and Summer Skincare

UV light, campfire smoke, and other environmental pollutants can cause the build-up of free radicals in the body. Free radicals can lead to wrinkles and discoloration of the skin as well as a whole host of other issues. As an antioxidant, CBD has the ability to neutralize free radicals and keep your skin protected.

As an added benefit of addressing free radicals, less free radicals means less inflammation. That could feel really great on sore feet from hiking, arms from swimming, shoulders from backpacking or just full body soreness from sleeping on a deflated air mattress in your camping tent!

What Can CBD do for Summer Skincare?

Full-spectrum CBD contains more than just an isolated cannabinoid from pure hemp extract. There are over 100 different cannabinoids in the hemp plant and they each interact with each other to increase effectiveness. This concept of the “entourage effect” has proven more effective than using the CBD cannabinoid all by itself.

The other minerals, vitamins, proteins and fatty acids can assist the skin in a number of ways including moisturizing, toning and protecting.

Balancing Summer Skincare with CBD

One of the biggest benefits of CBD oil is its ability to promote homeostasis throughout the body. This includes the skin. The restorative properties of topical CBD like Receptra Seriously Relax CBD Body Oil + Arnica can help balance out your skin in many situations including issues such as oil production, dryness, and blemishes.
