How can CBD help with acne?

Acne is the most common inflammatory skin condition experienced by many people at some point in their lives, be it occasionally or on a daily basis. Many factors influence acne, including excessive sebum production, inflammation, hormonal imbalances and genetics. Some other factors such as pollution, diet, stress levels and some medications could also increase the severity of acne symptoms.

Recent research shows that Cannabidiol (CBD) oil has anti-inflammatory benefits when applied to skin. This makes CBD a suitable ingredient for acne-prone skin, as it has the potential to decrease excess sebum (oil) production due to its balancing effect on the flow of skin’s oil. CBD not only inhibits overactive oil production, it also has the potential to reduce pain sensitivity, inflammation and scarring caused by acne. CBD’s essential fatty acid profile resembles our own skin's lipids, its skin rebalancing properties can help diminish breakouts and reduce redness caused by acne. 

It's all about the balance! Our CBD + Botanical Extracts Face Serum strengthens the skin's barrier whilst reducing inflammation from acne for healthier, smoother looking skin.
