Everything CBD can do for your skin.

You probably know the many benefits of CBD, but do you know what its effects are on the skin? The epidermis is our first protection against external aggressions, so it is essential to take care of it. Thanks to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, CBD is an ally of choice for cosmetic care! Find out all that CBD can do for your skin in this article.

CBD regulates sebum

The lipid film of the skin is essential to its health since it protects it from external aggressions and preserves its hydration. However, many factors can disrupt the body and the secretion of sebum: hormonal imbalance, poor lifestyle or the use of products that are too aggressive for the skin.
Two problems can then arise:
  • A lack of sebum : the epidermis is no longer sufficiently hydrated, the skin becomes dull and it is more prone to redness.
  • Excess sebum or seborrhea : oily skin, acne, clogged pores and blackheads.
Fortunately, CBD is known to rebalance sebum secretion . This is possible thanks to the cannabinoid receptors present in the sebaceous glands. In addition, its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial actions are very useful in treating acne problems.

The antioxidant effect of CBD delays skin aging

The culprits for the oxidation and deterioration of skin cells are free radicals . Does this name mean anything to you ? They are in fact very reactive oxygen molecules that are harmful to the skin.
The body naturally uses antioxidants to neutralize them, but sometimes an imbalance can lead to oxidative stress. Put simply, free radicals damage proteins, DNA, and cell membranes.
The antioxidant action of cannabidiol preserves skin cells and keeps skin supple and elastic.
The little extra : Consuming CBD boosts your endocannabinoid system, which also has an impact on the quality of your skin!
To protect your look from wrinkles and fine lines, we invite you to discover our special CBD eye contour mask . It can be used during the day to protect your skin, but also at night as a moisturizing mask.

CBD preserves skin hydration

As you know, the best way to hydrate your skin is to first consume enough water. And to keep this hydration, nothing like so-called “hydrating” products. That's good, since this is the case with cannabidiol.
CBD preserves the hydration of the epidermis and helps skin cells to regenerate faster. It is suitable for mature, sensitive, acne-prone or even atopic skin!
So to protect your skin from urban pollution and benefit from a real concentrate of hydration, we recommend Quinque's CBD moisturizing cream . Its light texture penetrates quickly and can even be used at night to deeply moisturize your skin.
CBD is a real ally against certain skin problems
Various studies* confirm that topical CBD products are effective in relieving the symptoms of certain skin conditions . This is the case of eczema, atopic dermatitis or even psoriasis.
Bottom Line : CBD does not act as a treatment for these skin conditions, but its anti-inflammatory and anti-angiogenic properties are effective against the discomforts they can cause.
