Can CBD Soothe Skin Irritations?
Posted on March 2nd, 2022 to CBD Products
Struggling with skin problems can be very frustrating, especially when trying several solutions without any luck. Our skin is sensitive, and we should treat it with all organic products instead of chemicals and synthetic fragrances. Did you know CBD works wonders for dry skin conditions? CBD has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce itching, pain, and dry skin due to eczema, psoriasis, and other skin irritations. So throw away those steroids and chemicals damaging your skin, read on!
CBD for Eczema and Psoriasis:
Eczema is a dry skin condition that causes itchy, dry, and red skin and can leave rash scars on the skin. Psoriasis is another dry skin condition that causes red itchy, and scaly skin due to cells multiplying too fast and piling up on the skin. Research has shown that CBD is an effective treatment for such skin conditions. In one study, 20 people with eczema and psoriasis were treated with CBD ointment twice a day for three months. They showed significant improvement as there was a reduction in inflammation and scars. In addition, there were no allergic reactions reported in the study. The entourage effect of CBD products, such as Dr. Peggy’s Healing Balm, activates our cannabinoid receptors and promotes homeostasis by reducing skin inflammation. In addition, the introduction of CBD to the skin helps increase Anandamide, a neurotransmitter, in the body. Anandamide helps regulate inflammation and pain and can reduce the production of excess skin cells that might be causing eczema and psoriasis.
CBD for Other Skin Conditions:
Skin Aging: With age, the skin loses its elasticity, and there is a decrease in collagen, which causes wrinkles. CBD could penetrate skin cells and balance the oxidative stress response that might be causing inflammation and wrinkles. CBD also regulates sebum production, leaving you with healthier skin.
Wound Healing: In a research study, researchers treated patients suffering from a skin disorder that causes pain and blistering with a topical application of CBD. They reported that their wounds were healing much faster, and there was a significant reduction in blistering. One could use CBD for minor injuries, cuts, scrapes, and burns.
Cold Sores: Cold sores are tiny, fluid-filled blisters on lips and sometimes around them caused by viral infections. They are contagious, and you may be repeatedly affected by this condition as long as the virus remains in your body. CBD could be effective for treating cold sores because of its anti-viral properties.

It can soothe, soften and moisturize dry skin on your face, lips, arms, or anywhere you desire. The combination of cannabinoids acts as a relaxant and provides relief from itching. Jojoba butter and beeswax are moisturizing and will leave your skin feeling soft and supple, especially during the wintertime when your skin needs it most.
