5 Creative Ways To Incorporate CBD Into Your Beauty Routine
by Taylor Hogan
Variety is the spice of life, right? But variety doesn't necessarily mean adding new products to our skincare routine. It could mean using your current skincare products in new and interesting ways.
Take for example our Lavender + CBD Face Oil. It’s a staple for most of our customers and is often used as a consistent part of nightly skincare routine. While we encourage our customers to use our CBD + Lavender Face Oil every day for 30 days to see noticeable results, for those Sundays where you treat yourself, there are a lot of ways to use our face oil in interesting and fun ways.
Here are some all-natural and do-it-yourself hacks to adding a little variety to your skincare routine with our CBD + Lavender Face Oil:
Mix & Apply
Boost your moisturizer
Many people are weary of using oil directly on their skin. A great way to dilute the oil while still getting the benefits is to add it to your favorite moisturizer. This is a great option when your skin needs a pick-me-up or is feeling extra dry due to dry winter air or dry summer heat. Use your oil dropper and squeeze a few drops into a small amount of your regular moisturizer. Mix in your hands and apply as normal.
Supercharge your makeup
Foundation drying your skin out? For a light and natural dewy and luminous skin look, mix a few drops of your face oil into your regular foundation or tinted moisturizer. The result will be a lighter coverage look that’s radiant and moisturizing. The oil can sit on your face during the day and soak into your skin.
Give Your Nail Cuticles A Little Love
If you notice your nail beds are looking dry or cracked, try adding your facial oil or CBD oil to the tops of each nail. Add a few drops where your nail meets your skin and rub in. The oil will help to moisturize the area and keep it looking fresh.
Oils can even help to strengthen your nails and aid in healthy regrowth. Try soaking your nails for 10-15 minutes in olive oil with a dropper of our Lavender + CBD oil to get even more benefits.
Try a Jade Roller or Gua Sha Stone + Face Oil Combo
You may have recently noticed on some social media platforms a new beauty tool pop up, a jade roller. These beauty tools are in fact not new at all. Jade rollers have been used for centuries by late 17th Century Chinese cultures. The gentle rolling motion of the jade roller massages the face which helps to increase circulation, aiding in issues such as puffiness in the face and uneven complexion. Jade is naturally cool and soothes the face.
Gua sha stones are very similar to jade rollers. They also originated from ancient chinese beauty practices, and are aimed to help increase circulation in the face. Rather than taking the shape of a roller with a handle, they are large stones made of jade, rose quartz, or another precious stone. They are carved to complement the shape and contours of the face. They are used by gently “scraping” the stone against the face either in an upward or downward motion.
Jade rolling and gua sha stones are both well paired with a facial oil. Try applying our Lavender + CBD Face Oil on your skin and then using one of these tools to massage the oil into skin. The oil also helps for the stones to easily glide across the skin, making for a smoother and easier facial massage.
Make Your Own Body Scrub
Ivy, our director of customer service, created this DIY body scrub. This hydrating, anti-inflammatory body scrub relaxes and invigorates. Exfoliation is a great way to keep your skin looking healthy and vibrant. Exfoliation helps to rid of dead skin and debris, which often is the cause of stoppages in your skin. The added ingredients such as jojoba oil and Populum’s Lavender + CBD Face Oil help keep your skin moisturized while you are exfoliating the dead skin away. Jojoba Oil is produced from the seed of the Jojoba plant, a shrubby tree that is native to southern Arizona and California.
This recipe not only provides the benefits of CBD to your skin, but also adds jojoba to the mix. Jojoba oil has been known to help soothe dry skin. It also has anti-inflammatory properties which help to reduce redness caused by drying and keep skin calm and comfortable. The Vitamin E and B-complex vitamins in the jojoba oil help in skin repair and damage control.
