CBD skin care: The secret to clear skin

CBD is being hailed as the new super serum by skin care professionals. There are anecdotal claims that it can help with any number of skin complaints. If you are looking for fresh ways to include CBD in your skin care routine, we have found some great ways to moisturise and exfoliate using Amma Life’s range of CBD skin care products.

CBD and Hemp oil

All Amma Life CBD oils contain hemp seed oil as a carrier oil. Consumed together, CBD and hemp seed oil make a dream-team addition to your skin care routine. Hemp oil is naturally great for skin for a number of reasons:

It won’t clog pores– Unlike some oils, hemp oil has a comedogenic rating of 0 out of 5, meaning you can use it without fear of clogged pores.

It contains magnesium – Magnesium is found in the human body but many are deficient in this crucial mineral. Adequate levels of magnesium help your body to regulate stress, anxiety, and sleep. Magnesium may produce melatonin, which is a hormone that regulates sleep.

It contains vitamin E – Vitamins are crucial for good body health. Vitamin E is added to moisturisers and other beauty products as a great way to protect your skin and support hair growth. It has also been said to work in synergy with hemp oil and can protect the skin from harmful UV rays.

Like CBD, hemp oil can help ease post-workout muscle aches and aid sports recovery. So when used together in your skin care routine, CBD and hemp oil can target specific areas or be used as an overall relaxing and nourishing skin care addition.

How to start your new CBD skin care routine

Two of the most popular ways to easily and regularly keep your skin looking clear and bright is to moisturise and exfoliate. We recommend using our CBD skin moisturising creams daily in place of your regular moisturiser, and the CBD scrubs 2-3 times a week in place of your usual exfoliator.

CBD moisturisers

Amma Life Deluxe CBD Body Cream
To start a simple CBD skin care routine, try our nourishing CBD body cream. Deeply relax and moisturise skin on both your face and body with our natural, non-toxic cream.

Amma Life CBD Muscle Balm
For a more intense moisturiser, try our balm that is rich in camphor and essential oil of rosemary and peppermint to promote circulation, soothe irritated skin and relax tired and achy muscles.

CBD foot scrub

For an intensely nourishing exfoliator, try combining Amma Life’s 500mg CBD muscle balm with sea salt, or even better, Epsom bath salts. Epsom salts contain magnesium, said to be great for regulating sleep and anxiety.

Just mix 1 part salt with 3 parts CBD balm, and you will have yourself a cooling exfoliator to treat your feet with after a hard day.

There is no need to add any essential oils or carrier oils, as the CBD skin balm already contains coconut oil, beeswax, peppermint, rosemary and camphor oil.

Start by soaking in a relaxing hot bath to open the pores, then massage the scrub into your whole body. Massage the scrub into your skin in circular motions to promote circulation, for around 2 minutes to allow the body to absorb the ingredients. Rinse well with water and pat dry.

CBD face scrub

The sensitive skin on your face requires a more delicate exfoliator. Try mixing Amma Life’s Deluxe CBD Body Cream with castor sugar for a finer, gentler exfoliator. It can work wonders for removing dead skin cells, invigorating blood flow and leaving your skin with a clean glow.

Be sure to use a gentle massage technique on the facial skin to avoid leaving it sore and red from overzealous application. Mix equal parts sugar with CBD body cream, and gently massage into the face to buff away dead skin cells and dirt, promoting skin renewal and revealing new, healthy looking skin underneath.

For particularly dry, sensitive skin, Amma Life’s CBD soothing body cream is great for soothing irritated skin. Full of nourishing ingredients, this 100% natural CBD cream contains all the benefits of activated cannabinoids, colloidal oatmeal and aloe vera. Apply to dry, sensitive patches of skin to soothe and intensely moisturise.
