Stuck at home trying to figure out how to while away the hours? Or perhaps you’re juggling working at home while trying to home school your kids, do the laundry, feed the family and clean the house all while your significant other tells you how hard things are? If either scenario describes your new norm, take a deep breathe, close your eyes, take another deep breathe, then set aside a few minutes for yourself.
Stress can wreak havoc on your skin. So when it comes to skincare, CBD has a lot more things to offer than you might think. Studies have shown that CBD for skincare has therapeutic and calming benefits when applied topically. It works as a therapeutic solution for all skin types, including sensitive and acne-prone skin. Moreover, CBD also contains potent antioxidant properties which help counteract the signs of aging caused by harmful free radicals.
CBD's most enticing attributes are its anti-inflammatory and analgesic (pain-killing) properties. Scientists are finding more evidence that it can nourish dry skin, treat psoriasis and eczema, and prevent the occurrence of wrinkles and red spots.
CBD for Acne
Acne is generally caused by excessive sebum production, which blocks pores and traps in dirt and bacteria. CBD is thought to help suppress breakouts by regulating oil production of the sebaceous glands and treat acne problems. CBD also helps reduce the redness and further damage to the skin following an acne attack to help minimize scarring.
If stress is causing you an acne breakout, reach for The Apothecary Store’s Beauty Bar and Skin Care Facial Cleanser. Both reach deep into pores for cleaner, healthy looking skin. For the ultimate weekly treatment, our Dead Sea Mud Mask, packed with Bentonite, Dead Sea Salt, Vulcanous Kaolin and other nurturing minerals and ingredients, promotes smoother looking skin, cleaner pores, and removal of toxins and excess oils.
CBD for Wrinkles
Studies have shown that CBD has anti-aging properties that can regenerate weak skin cells to give the skin a polished and refined look and prevent free radicals from further damaging skin. CBD-infused skincare products, such as our Revitalize Cream with Collagen & Retinol or our Anti-Aging Cream with Apple Stem will help minimize the visible signs of aging and restore a more youthful and vibrant looking appearance. Try our Ultra Eye Repair Cream to reduce those dark circles, puffiness, lines and wrinkles. Finish your beauty regiment with our Marionberry Martini Gel Mask with 300mg of CBD, for soft, glowing skin.
Nostalgic for a simpler time? There’s no question these are stressful times, and nothing says, “Hey, I’m important too!” than taking a little “me time” to relax and feel beautiful again -- even if it’s just for a few minutes. We recommend our Unicorn or Fruity Pebbles bath bombs. Customers tell us they pair well with their favorite alcoholic beverage.
