With the start of the new decade, a lot of people are really beginning to crack down on themselves. For the past 10 years, we have seen a huge increase in the Health & Wellness economy. Exercise, dieting, and supplements have all made their way into our lives. Younger folks are looking into the best diet to take, the best way to enhance your cardio, even the best skin care routine to brighten your face, lift bags from your eyes, and leave you feeling rejuvenated and joyful.
Did you know that CBD can help with all these things?
Within our bodies, we have what’s called, “The Endocannabinoid system.” This system has unique endocannabinoid and cannabinoid receptors that help our body regulate many aspects of our life; from mood regulation, sleep, and even your appetite. While there are many cannabinoids known- over 100- taking a full-spectrum CBD product, where different molecules are present (each having their own therapeutic benefits), having these present can help invoke “The Entourage Effect,” giving you better success and a better overall experience while taking CBD.
But this is just ingesting it. What about applying it?
While we do offer many products for topical use, for pain management, for topical skin conditions, or just to help you decompress after a long day, there are many other used for CBD. With the latest fad of skin care, and people looking to keep their skin looking healthy and fresh, it is very easy to accomplish this, with the help of incorporating CBD into your daily routine. It’s very easy!
The CBD Handbook: Over 75 Recipes for Hemp-Derived Health and Wellness, by Melissa Petitto, R.D., had a fantastic recipe in her book for a sensitive-skin face mask. With only four ingredients, this single use face mask can, “help reduce the redness associated with chronic skin conditions.” As well as soften the skin and help reduce inflammation.
- 1 tsp Matcha powder
- 1 tsp Honey (raw, unfiltered)
- 1 tsp Sweet almond oil
- 1 ml CBD oil (I used our Genesis Blend 1oz CBD oil)
The actual ingredients vary, as it calls for Manuka Honey and Ceremonial-grade matcha powder, but, in an average household, these things just simply aren’t there. I was, however, able to grab individual matcha powder packets from my local Asian market, the honey and sweet almond oil at my local grocery.
The rest is simple. Combine these ingredients in a small bowl or sauce bowl, mixing well. When thoroughly mixed, apply to face (or area of your choice), and kick back for 20 minutes. Wipe it off with a warm cloth.
Let me tell you. I have Lupus. One of the main symptoms with Lupus is “The Butterfly Rash,” a red rash that appears across your cheeks in the shape of a butterfly’s wing. Depending on the day, my rash is subtle, while some days I look like a tomato. With CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties, and soothing feeling of the almond oil and honey across my face, after that 20-minute mark, and upon wiping my face, I could instantly see a difference.
My face was much more even in tone, not to mention softer and brighter. I looked very different. The results lasted throughout the next day of sweaty work. I was impressed.
This book has some fantastic recipes to try out. A great way for you incorporate CBD into your life with everyday activities. Help CBD help you, in the best way possible.
