How The Cold Can Take Its Toll On Your Skin
During late fall and winter, it’s no secret that many of us struggle with dry skin. With lower levels of humidity in many parts of the country, it can be easy for our face and hands to become sore, chapped, and swollen. In serious cases, even our skin can begin to break.
The reason for dry skin isn’t solely the weather’s fault though. During the winter, we spend more time indoors, which leads to more common colds and other illnesses. Of course, this leads to us all washing our hands more, as well as using hand sanitizer. This is especially true now during the global pandemic. All this sanitizing and washing can lead to dry, chapped, inflamed, and worn out hands. Luckily, CBD has been anecdotally shown to have anti-inflammatory and moisturizing properties.
Drying And Inflammation
When skin becomes dry, it is more easily inflamed and can quickly become the source of stinging pain. Luckily for CBD users, not only does CBD have the potential to reduce that inflammation with its natural properties, but it also has the possibility of helping to relieve the problem at its source.
To avoid dryness, you can choose a skin moisturizer or lotion, but many of these products have so many ingredients in them, you may actually be worsening your skin without realizing it. A great CBD Salve, on the other hand, is loaded with natural calming and restoring ingredients like organic beeswax, organic eucalyptus oil, and phytocannabinoid-rich hemp extract. This hemp extract in particular has the potential for anti-aging effects when combined with cannabidiol (CBD).
A Soothing Treat For Your Skin
As the above-mentioned compounds begin to work into your skin with a gentle rub, you’ll immediately notice the wonderful smooth sensation upon application due to it’s organic MCT oil. Perhaps the most instantly recognizable feature of Danu’s CBD Salve is its incredible scent. A potent aroma of refreshing lavender and eucalyptus are instantly recognizable, with just a hint of the earthy smell of hemp.
If your hands are particularly inflamed, it may be a good idea to try a CBD Sports Cream with cooling menthol and camphor. The menthol effect is noticeable immediately and works in tandem with the CBD to potentially provide quick relaxation of irritated skin.
