We’ve all heard (probably) about the supposed benefits of CBD oil for our health and as a pain reliever but what about the aging process? Can CBD oil be used to stop wrinkles developing or even better, can it reverse the signs of ageing that we already have?
The outward signs of aging can be very distressing to us in an increasingly visual society, where plastic surgery and Botox are more common than ever. Social media, the beauty industry, magazines and television all favour and promote youth, often to the detriment of the ageing population.
We are always on the lookout for less expensive, less invasive ways to curb the aging process, anti-wrinkle creams have been in favor for years as an alternative to surgery or Botox. Step forward CBD infused skin care products as they attempt to be the answer to the youthful, healthy skin we all desire.
It has been claimed that CBD is a powerful antioxidant which helps reverse the aging process by minimising free-radicals and the harm they do to the skin. This is because free-radicals make collagen break down more quickly, which in turn causes the skin to sag. Antioxidants prevent this and therefore, keep the skin looking healthier and more youthful. These antioxidants can also help alleviate the damage done by other things, including environmental factors: UV rays and pollution; or lifestyle factors: smoking, drinking, poor nutrition and a lack of a CBD skincare regime.
CBD also has moisturising properties and it is widely known that the drying out of the skin is a huge factor in the ageing process. Drier skin shows more wrinkles and fine lines. CBD applied topically along with other important ingredients, helps the skin to produce vital oils to help retain its moisture and assists in providing a youthful glow.
Top European CBD manufacturers Cibdol, have released their very own CBD Anti-Aging Cream which claims to soothe and nourish the skin. Cibdol are giants within the CBD manufacturing industry, with over 5,000 plus reviews on Trustpilot and an excellent rating to boot, the Swiss brand are renowned for their product range.
Endocannabinoids are said to be responsible for the production of oil which has led to the growth of CBD use in moisturisers and skin oils. It even helps to treat serious medical skin conditions including eczema and psoriasis. The anti-inflammatory effects of CBD are also helpful to make the skin more healthy looking and wrinkle free.
The growing popularity of CBD skincare products continues to grow as it becomes more mainstream. With more and more companies such as Cibdol offering Anti-Aging CBD creams the industry looks bright. However, do they actually work? Only time will tell as more research is made available.
