Is there anyone using topical CBD oil?[Product Question]
Hi there I searched through the subs history and wanted to see any discussion about CBD oil but when used topically. So far it was mostly users experiences taking it orally for anxiety. Would love to hear any other users experience. Personally I have PCOS and was curious if there was benefits for cystic acne (reducing inflammation?)
My husband uses cbd oil orally and topically (same tincture – I’ll try to remember the brand, it’s excellent) for inflammation. I’ve tried it on my face, and it removed every trace of redness and puffiness. It was amazing. Granted, I put pure concentrated cbd oil on my face, not a lotion. So it also felt AWESOME, but was probably the cost equivalent of a high end face mask.
If you’re worried about the potential comedogenic properties, you could try getting a concentrate and mixing it in to your moisturizer. Now that I think about it, I’m doing that as soon as I get home lol
Edit: It also did wonders for the appearance of my cyclic acne. I’m a huge picker, and it reduced my failed attempts to mostly flat scabs. But still, that was with a decent amount of pure cbd oil. Hard to replicate those results without murdering my wallet.
[Acne] hemp seed oil for acne?
Has anybody tried this? If so what are your results and what brand do you use? So you reccomend any other oils, such as lavender or tea tree to add into it or apply topically? I break out super easily and have never a cleanser that doesn't break me out or prevent pimples other then a benzoyl peroxide wash, wish I believe isn't good for long term everyday use. If you can help me that'd be great, thanks.c
I use Origins ‘Hello, Calm’ face mask when my skin is really stressed out. It has hemp seed oil, which is rich in fatty acids. I don’t necessarily see it helping my acne directly, but it certainly helps with the associated redness. It is super moisturizing, so it’s perfect in cold weather. It’s always a nice pick me up when I have hormonal acne.
I know Josie Maran just came out with a 50/50 argan oil/hemp oil combo, as well as a CBD/argan oil mix. I’m excited to read reviews bc the argan oil already does miracles on my skin!
What would you say your skin type is? I'm also wanting to try argan oil! I hear it's a good non comedogenic moisturizer!
I found some hemp oil off Amazon. I don't think it is "curing" my breakouts, but it definitely hasn't caused new ones and I feel like it is helping heal spots I've picked at/popped quicker. I also feel like my skin as a whole just looks better since I began using it.
Hemp seed oil is a 0 out of 5 on the comedogenic scale, meaning it will not clog pores. I was using Jojoba oil prior and it was causing new breakouts all the time: I did some research and found out Jojoba oil is a 2 on the scale.
Here is the kind I use: it moisturizes my oily skin without feeling super heavy. I really love it, especially in winter! And it's not crazy expensive.
