Times have evolved and how! It just gives me an incredible feeling, to say the least, to be in an era when sneaking CBD in the house isn’t punishable anymore! No, don’t get any thoughts there, I am talking about CBD in skincare.

If you have missed the buzz around this relatively new ingredient on the block, here’s a lowdown for you. CBD, short for Cannabidiol, is taking over the world of skincare. The compound found in marijuana and hemp is perhaps an effective remedy for skin inflammation.

Jennifer Anniston and Mandy Moors swear by the goodness of hemp oil which they use topically for relieving stress and soothe tired muscles. Its anti-inflammatory properties can be credited for its popularity. CBD is now everywhere; from serum to lip balms and moisturisers to cleansers, you’ll find hemp-infused products on at least one aisle in almost all beauty stores.

So, does it do any good to the skin? Because of anti-inflammatory properties and the anti-oxidants in it, CBD products are beneficial in treating skin inflammation, radical damage and dryness. A few studies also claim for it to be beneficial in treating acne as it controls sebum production. It’s also regarded for its anti-bacterial and pain-relieving properties.

Due to the social taboo surrounding hemp, researches are still being conducted on its efficacy. However, it has still successfully made its way to the world of beauty, and it’s here to stay.

The fact that it is being widely used has surpassed the apprehension around it, but we understand if you’re hesitant to include it in your regular skincare routine.

But who minds a soothing add-on on a long, tiring day that can help relax and ease out the tension. And if you get radiant skin along with it, that’s a win-win, isn’t it?
