From Acne to Anti-Ageing: How CBD Medicinal Balm Can Improve Your Skin
According to many scientific studies, CBD oil can do many wonderful things. But can cannabidiol contribute to healthy skin and smooth complexion? Can it fight wrinkles and slow down the ageing process?
The great news is that CBD can reduce the signs of ageing. But first we need to understand one thing: why does our skin actually age?
How the Ageing Process Works
It happens to everyone. At some point, the wrinkles start. And then they don’t stop! Why is that?
Our skin loses its resilience and elasticity as we age. This happens when the body produces less collagen and other proteins. At the same time, the sebaceous glands produce less fat, which draws moisture from the skin and makes it drier.
This is the normal biological ageing process. There are also other factors that can accelerate ageing, such as genetics, as well as environmental factors such as sun exposure, and alcohol or tobacco consumption. An unhealthy diet, low antioxidants and excessive stress also accelerate ageing.
So What Can You Do to Prevent Skin Ageing
The first place to start is to look at environmental factors that you can control, like sun exposure and ensuring you have a healthy lifestyle.
You can also turn to plastic surgery or injectable treatments like Botox. But that’s not very natural.
The great news is that CBD is a natural treatment that fights impurities and leaves your skin looking clean, young and fresh.
CBD, Wrinkles and an Anti-Aging Effect?
CBD oils, as products derived from plants, have antioxidant properties. Antioxidants bind free radicals (chemicals that age your body) and prevent oxidative stress. Antioxidants can counteract the ageing process, reduce inflammation and improve the complexion.
CBD contains very powerful antioxidant properties, perhaps even more powerful than vitamins C and E. This means that CBD cosmetics can help with wrinkles, blemishes and inflammation.
What Types of CBD Cosmetics Does Down to Earth Have?
CBD cosmetics include a wide variety of products such as creams, oils, gels, lotions, serums or balms.
In fact, the American Academy of Dermatology mentions that topical CBD products show potential for lowering inflammation that can contribute to acne, eczema, and psoriasis.
Down To Earth is proud to offer a range of premium CBD skincare products, including body balms, lip balms, serums and bath salts, on top of our CBD oils and edibles range.
Today we’re looking at balms. Let’s see how to unlock and activate CBD balm and its benefits for your skin.
What Are the Benefits Of Using a CBD Balm for Skin?
CBD Balms For Acne
Almost all of us have experienced the perils of acne, an inflammatory disease of the skin. Therefore, anything that reduces inflammation and soothes the skin makes sense to help treat acne. This is where CBD balm, with its anti-inflammatory properties, can help.
When you calm acne and reduce inflammation, you minimise pimple formation and reduce redness. Your skin will feel and look better.
CBD Balms For Sensitive Skin
CBD balms can also have a calming effect. This can help with skin sensitivities such as redness and minimise rashes. Studies also show that CBD can reduce excess sebum (oil) production in the skin’s pores.
CBD Balms For Eczema And Psoriasis
CBD balms can also assist with a range of other inflammatory skin issues such as eczema and psoriasis.

How Often Should I Apply CBD Balm to My Skin?

While CBD is generally safe, you should patch test any CBD skincare product to ensure it works for you.
Before using any CBD product, you should consult your doctor to ensure that CBD is right for you.
