CBD Oil's Benefits for Skin - The Solution Your Skin Has Been Waiting For!
Okay, we’re calling it now - within the next year, you’ll start seeing some miraculous changes in the people you love...
Your grandma will replace the “night cream” she’s used since the 1950s
Your best friend will suddenly look refreshed and ten years younger
Your dad will be walking with a spring in his previously achy step
Your little sister will suddenly be the envy of all her teenage friends
What’s the secret to these sudden transformations? CBD skincare has taken the beauty world by storm, and you can barely walk down the aisle in your local boutique without seeing a CBD product every few feet. But what makes CBD oil so beneficial for your skin and such a boon for the beauty industry?
The top prize goes to the anti-inflammatory properties found in CBD, which do everything from reduce eye puffiness to calming redness and irritation. Those suffering from rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, and dry skin find soothing relief with CBD skin care creams and lotions. CBD also relieves pain and soreness related to skin conditions, joint pain, and muscle tenderness. It’s also full of antioxidants, which protect your skin from the signs of aging and give you that youthful glow.
For those battling the war on acne, adding CBD to their skincare routine may inhibit the production of sebum in overactive sebaceous glands - one of the primary causes of teenage and adults acne. In fact, Mermaid Wizdom’s Dead Sea Salt Scrub packs a double punch with its acne-fighting CBD and Black Hawaiian sea salt, which is infused with activated charcoal, which draws out impurities and excess sebum, leaving the skin balanced, smooth, and healthy.
“CBD binds to a special set of receptors in the skin known as TRPV-1 receptors, where it can help feelings of heat, itch, and pain,” says Joshua Zeichner, MD, a New York-based dermatologist. “This explains why it has a soothing effect on the skin. Just as other natural oils are used in skin care, the natural fatty acids and antioxidants in hempseed oil make it a good choice for people with dry skin and eczema.”
CBD for Weight Loss
Okay, be honest. How many of you made a New Year’s Resolution at last month to lose weight? It’s the most common resolution made every year! But come February 1st, we’re back to eating Oreos and lamenting that we’ll try again next year. But what if I told you that CBD oil could help you stick to that resolution and actually meet your weight loss goals? CBD for Weight Loss sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it?
Well, there’s no magic weight loss pill (yet - c’mon, Science, get on that!), but it’s true that CBD oil could help you lose weight, along with diet and exercise.
“But wait, Mermaid Wizdom,” I hear you protesting. “Doesn’t CBD give you the munchies? Remember those Oreos…?”
Fair point. Thanks to dozens of movies like “How High” and “Friday,” everyone knows that smoking marijuana can increase your appetite and give you “the munchies.” But it’s the THC in the marijuana that causes this - and we know that there’s virtually no THC in CBD oil (by definition, CBD oil must contain less than .03% THC). Using CBD for weight loss has been actually shown to decrease appetite because it relaxes the part of the brain that is responsible for eating. So CBD could actually help you stop overeating, especially when you’re stressed or bored.
CBD also affects your metabolism through “fat browning,” which isn’t as gross as it sounds. We have two types of fat tissue. White-colored fat tissue stores energy, and brown or beige-colored fat tissue actually burns energy. The “fat browning” process converts the white fat into brown fat, which boosts your body’s ability to burn calories and decreases the generation of fat cells.
But that’s not all. Weight gain can also be a side effect or symptom of depression, and CBD has been shown to be an effective treatment for depression. By managing the depression, patients are then enabled to take better care of themselves - they have more energy, are more active, and may make healthier food choices. Throw in that CBD can also help patients with debilitating pain and insomnia, and you can see how CBD can lead to a better quality of life for many people.
Of course, we are all unique individuals, and what works for one person won’t necessarily work for others. As with any supplement, Mermaid Wizdom recommends that you do your research, talk to your doctor, and consider any other medications you’re taking before you begin taking CBD for Weight Loss. Finding the right dosage is key as well, so start with a low dosage and stick with that for a few weeks. If you’re not seeing the results you want, increase the dose slowly to prevent any side effects. You can learn more about CBD dosing on our About CBD Oil page.
Choosing a reputable CBD brand is vitally important, as there are a lot of low-quality imposters out there. Here at Mermaid Wizdom, we source the highest-quality CBD oil for our products, ensuring that our customers receive the best CBD oil available. We invite you to shop our CBD Oil products and experience the positive benefits that CBD oil can have on your quality of life, your health...and your 2019 goals!
But the lack of regulation and standardization in the CBD industry posts a challenge for those of us interested in upgrading our beauty products and routines. How do you know which brands to trust? Because the quality and efficacy can vary widely, it’s important to do your research - and don’t stop at listicles on Buzzfeed. Contact the CBD companies and ask about their products. What do they do to ensure consistency and accuracy within their product lines? Will they provide current copies of lab test results? Do they use whole hemp extract in their products?
