Anti-Aging and CBD

Published on

Luminous and youthful looking skin doesn’t last forever. You trade in smooth skin for infinite wisdom, which isn’t such a bad deal. But what if you could hold onto your youth for just a little while longer? With CBD topicals, you may be able to help keep your skin looking healthier and younger.

Why Does Our Skin Age?

Your skin’s health has a lot to do with what you consume, what you expose it to, genes, and your lifestyle. Some may find their youth escaping much quicker than others because of their exposure to sun or smoking cigarettes. Though over time, no one can escape the fact that your skin loses elasticity.

After you hit the ripe old age of twenty-years-old, your body stops producing 1% of its collagen levels each year. Once you reach forty, your collagen is no longer produced.  The collagen and elastin fibers will clump together, thicken up, and break resulting in wrinkles and aging lines. By the time you are in your 50s, sebaceous oils glands are smaller, and your skin becomes more easily damaged and broken.

How Can CBD Help?


When the sun is kissing your skin, it is also spreading free radicals which can damage your skin cells. Other environmental factors like smoke and pollution attack the skin in the same way. CBD oil has shown in studies to be an anti-oxidant which means it protects the skin from these free radicals.

CBD also shows it may elevate the levels of collagen produced in the body. Not only is cannabidiol great for bone health, but this function is also beneficial to your skin. CBD creams aren’t trying to make your skin absorb collagen, so they are different from most creams. Collagen is too large to be absorbed through the skin. CBD topicals may work so well because they are elevating the chemical from within.

If you’re thinking about using skin cream for your wrinkles using CBD can help you achieve more youthful looking skin as well as help repair damage, check out our shop today to pick up some CBD cream and hold onto that young skin for just a little bit longer, or keep it alive as long as you can.
