Cannabis has been spreading like, well, a weed to all sorts of different products, including skincare. Hemp seed oil has long been used to hydrate and nourish skin, while CBD (short for cannabidiol, the non-psychoactive cousin of THC) is being added for its anti-inflammatory properties to help with redness and acne. From beard balms to face wash, an elevated skincare routine is finally within reach.
1. UPOTHECARY SATIVA FACE BAR
Anyone who knows their cannabis strains knows that sativa has, ahem, uplifting properties. In addition to hydrating hemp seed oil, this facial bar contains charcoal to tackle skin impurities and deliver a fresh, invigorating scent.
2. MAHI CBD DAILY SKIN RENEWAL CREAM
This cream, from Canadian brand Mahi, is a lightweight hydrator that protects from environmental irritants. Its key ingredient of CBD can help balance oil production for a soft and non-greasy complexion.
3. SCOTCH PORTER CBD BEARD BALM
The addition of CBD to this beard balm’s botanical ingredients (broccoli seed oil, sesame oil, and basil leaf ) means extra anti-inflammatory properties and healthy fatty acids that combat skin flakiness, dryness, and irritation.
4. L’EELA RADIANT FACE SERUM
Packed with skin-boosting ingredients, serums make a smart addition to any skincare regimen. L’eela’s version contains antioxidant-rich CBD extract, which helps to reverse the effects of time and impart a well-rested glow.
5. THE BODY SHOP HEMP HEAVY-DUTY FACE PROTECTOR
The Body Shop knows its way around weed: hemp’s been on its ingredients roster since the ’90s. Their Face Protector soothes dry patches while offering all-over hydration (yes, skin still gets dry in the summer).
