CBD: Help for Your Skin without All the Hype
It seems that everywhere we turn these days, people are raving about CBD. Those three letters elicit a lot of excitement due to CBD’s potential and power to relieve everyday aches and pains.
When that buzzword pops up, though, you may be wondering “what is CBD, exactly?” And what on earth does CBD have to do with my skincare? Oh, you’re in for a real treat. Let’s get into it, shall we?
What is CBD?
CBD is short for cannabidiol, a naturally occurring compound that is extracted from the flowers of cannabis plants, such as hemp and marijuana. We know what you’re thinking, and no - although it is derived from marijuana plants, CBD does not give you a “high." THC, the other active ingredient in marijuana, is responsible for those mind-altering effects. Your skin is safe with us.
In recent years, scientists have discovered that CBD possesses a variety of medically useful properties, and we are only beginning to tap into the profound potential of this natural wonder! Aside from its benefits in treating anxiety, chronic pain and more, CBD has also proven to be pure magic when it comes to skincare. Music to our ears.
Why CBD is a Game-Changer for your Skin
Research has shown that CBD possesses remarkable anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activity. This means it has the power to fight inflammation and free-radical damage, two of the most common causes of skin irritation and signs of aging. Furthermore, CBD reduces the production of certain oils in the skin, making it a whiz at zapping acne before it starts.
We knew we needed to harness the power of CBD to deliver healing properties directly to your skin. Plus, it’s natural, which is totally on-brand for us. Unlike other products that contain a single drop in each formula, we went all-in to provide a complete skincare routine infused with CBD. This means that every step of the way, your skin is cared for and generously spoiled. Each product is specially formulated with natural botanicals to penetrate deep below the surface to relieve, repair, and restore your skin to its most healthy and luminous state.
By combining the magic of earth's resources with the latest technology in skincare, Luma & Leaf is able to offer you nature's best remedy for your skin. Don’t believe us? Just watch (and try).
Don't Be Fooled by the Fakes
As you pioneer this new world of CBD-infused skincare, be careful not to fall prey to the fakes out there. There are plenty of brands that attempt to capitalize on the enthusiasm surrounding CBD without offering any of its benefits. In other words—a whole lot of hype, and not a lot of help.
To be sure you're getting a quality CBD product, look for the terms "cannabidiol," "broad spectrum CBD," "full spectrum CBD," "CBD isolate", or "hemp CBD" on the label. Luma & Leaf utilizes broad spectrum CBD, which incorporates a variety of cannabinoids and helpful botanicals from the plant, delivering a host of restorative benefits straight from nature to your skin.
It’s also important to keep in mind that some companies will market items that seem similar to CBD, but in reality, the oil used is derived from seeds instead of leaves and flowers. Hemp seed oil and cannabis sativa oil have good benefits for skin, however these should not be confused with CBD.
As you choose a CBD-infused product, it’s imperative to choose one made by a company you trust. Our Clean Promise is to simplify skincare by using wholesome ingredients that are safe, gentle, and effective. When in doubt, always refer to the healing power of plants to rejuvenate you. This goes for your skin - and your soul within.
