The skin is the largest organ we have; and for good measure too! The skin accounts approximately 22 square feet of it. This flesh covering does a lot more than make us look presentable. In fact, without it, we'd literally evaporate.
The skin acts as a waterproof, insulating shield that guards the body against the extremes of temperature, damaging sunlight, and harmful chemicals. It also secretes antibacterial substances to combat infections, produces vitamin D to encourage healthy bones, and provides fundamental sensations for the nerves. It's no wonder that people go to great lengths to preserve it; and one such way that skin begins to look as if it is no longer effective are wrinkles.
Let this article serve as an initial guide on 5 common mistakes you are making when it comes to maintaining your skin, most notably, your face!
Premature wrinkles are a classic sign of excess Sun exposure. Free radicals from the Sun's UV rays disrupt the body's natural collagen and elastin production. Applying sunscreen blocks some of the effects of UV rays. To really fend off free radical damage, it is best to use products that are rich in antioxidants such as our CBD Face Mask. When applied topically, CBD's most enticing attributes are its anti-inflammatory and powerful antioxidant properties. With its antioxidant properties, CBD has the ability to counteract the effects of UV radiation and free radicals motivating cell regeneration.
Like your body, your skin needs reset too! Pushing back on your bedtime can lead to premature fine lines and wrinkles. Research shows that even one night of poor sleep can do a number on your skin! Poor skin also means that recovery time slows down.
Bathing has been known to promote better sleep, improve mood, and de-stress. Get to sleep earlier and enjoy a more restful slumber with our Serenity CBD Bath Bomb.
3. FORGETTING TO WASH UP
Whether you wear makeup or not, washing your face twice a day is essential to prevent premature aging. Sweat, makeup, pollution, and bacteria sit on our skin, embed free radicals, and contribute to inflammation and visible signs of aging. Free radicals disrupt the body's natural collagen and elastin production. While it happens a lot during our younger years, this habit leads to consequences as we age.
Once you have developed a habit of washing your face morning and night, don't forget to moisturize! Whether you have dry skin or extremely oily skin, everyone needs a moisturizer. Keeping the skin hydrated throughout the day will keep wrinkles at bay.
Try our CBD Face Cream, packed with Full Spectrum CBD designed to enhance several vitamin-rich, organic ingredients to delivery hydration with each application.
5. SWITCHING UP YOUR ROUTINE
Patience is key, especially with CBD! CBD works with your endocannabinoid system; and in order to see its benefits, the CBD, first needs to be absorbed into the bloodstream. The appropriate amount varies for each individual, as each person's daily habits, behaviors, and bodies are unique. Using CBD consistently may help sustain a level of wellness in your body, helping to stimulate function of your endocannabinoid system to each more to the cannabinoids.
While it must be frustrating to use a product and not see immediate results, most topical products require this amount of time commitment anyways. The skin's natural cycle is 30 days long. Therefore, even when using a skincare product without CBD, most results aren't visible until the old skin cells have been replaced. So use new products for at least six weeks, before calling it quits!
