DIY Anti Aging CBD Face Mask
by Taylor Hogan
CBD oil has a variety of benefits for the body and is loaded with antioxidants. Antioxidants are a primary ingredient in anti-aging moisturizers and lotions. Anti-aging products can be expensive and loaded with fillers, but there are many natural alternatives to anti-aging face masks that can easily be made at home.
How does CBD work for the skin?
While taking CBD oil sublinguilly may be the most popular way to get your daily dose, there are other ways to get benefits from cannabinol. Your skin has receptors that allow CBD absorption, whether that be through a CBD cream, oil or balm. This is a great option for anyone looking to target a certain area of their body. For example, Populum’s Cold Therapy CBD Hemp Rub combines natural agents to provide instant relief on sore backs or tight muscles.
CBD has a unique set of benefits for the skin as opposed to taking it orally. According to the National Institutes of Health, CBD may help reduce redness, dryness and inflammation, and has the potential to treat eczema and psoriasis. CBD also contains high concentrations of vitamin D. Some studies have found that vitamin D can help treat skin conditions as well.
Just like when you are taking orally, using CBD consistently will lead to better results. This is exactly why Populum created the Lavender + CBD Face Oil.
DIY Anti-aging Face Mask
Though most use our Lavender + CBD Face Oil at night, it can also be used during the day as a your morning face oil or in face masks (like this one!). This mask combines the powerful antioxidants from CBD and Lavender with other natural ingredients for a soothing refresh during the day.
- 1 Lemon
Lemon is known to lighten dark spots on the skin. It can also be used to heal acne and remove blackheads. Lemon juice naturally contains vitamin C, an antioxidant that may help reduce skin damage and premature aging.
- 2 TBSP Brown Sugar
Brown sugar’s granulated form can be used to exfoliate your skin, clearing away dry and dead skin cells. This helps create a smoother skin and an instant youthful glow. Brown sugar has antibacterial properties and glycolic acid that keeps your skin looking radiant and healthy.
- 2 TBSP Plain Greek Yogurt
The lactic acid in Greek yogurt exfoliates your skin, reducing the signs of aging and leaving you with lighter, brighter skin.
