“Big” Brand Doesn’t Mean Best Brand
It’s the picture perfect infomercial–a bathroom full of popular brands of moisturizers, acne treatments, muscle balms, roll-on applicators, lotions, salves spilling (nay, tumbling) out of your medicine cabinet.
You probably only picked them because they had the money for big brand advertising, or they hired a football player to say they love it (they don’t), or an actress to say it’s the only stuff she uses (she doesn’t)–and so, you “had” to.
As creatures of habit, we tend to fall into our routines without thinking very much about the products we use daily. We reach for what is most familiar when it’s time to buy more, and we only make a change if our favorite product is out of stock, promising that we’ll buy two of it the next time (just to be safe).
If we do decide to switch it up or have to buy a backup brand out of necessity, we tend to gravitate toward something similar hoping it will all work out until we can return to ol’ faithful. It’s not typically our first thought to try something new. What if it doesn’t work? What if it gives you a rash? What if you have a reaction to it?
They’re valid questions—and typically we’re so wrapped up in our questions we never even get the time to research something new. So while you’re fervently festering over dry skin and discomfort—CBD skincare is quietly rescuing thousands of similar souls!
What Are CBD Topical Balms?
Like lotions and body butters that bind well to cannabinoids, CBD balms and salves are simply thicker and more compact. Plus, a more concentrated and compact formula makes them great for targeted relief on the go.
While not a top-of-mind product for most people yet, topical CBD salves are starting to make their mark—and typically taking less space in the bathroom!
CBD salves and balms are rubbed onto the skin where they are absorbed and processed by the endocannabinoid system. CBD from salves don’t absorb into the bloodstream as effectively as tinctures and edibles–making them perfect for localized issues like dry skin and blemishes.
CBD Balms For Moisturizing
Because CBD is naturally high in vitamins and minerals, high-quality CBD balms containing nourishing oils can be effective at targeting those hard to tame dry spots. Using Full-Spectrum CBD Balms on your elbows, knees, and soles of your feet at bedtime can help hydrate your skin while you sleep.
And just like other dry, cracked skin—most balms are perfect for chapped lips! For those that never leave home without chapstick (plus a backup by the bed, in your car, the desk at work, and maybe one in the living room—just in case), sub out your current regalia with this Full-Spectrum CBD Lip Balm in peppermint, cherry, and vanilla!
CBD Balms For Improving The Appearance Of Skin
On top of its incredible moisture quality, CBD is also a known super-antioxidant. So up your skincare game with CBD oil balms or creams to help treat the root cause of mild skin concerns without the use of chemicals. Try a Full-Spectrum CBD Body Balm for spot treatments and glowing skin!
If you have more severe skin conditions, be sure to ask your dermatologist whether or not CBD-infused products are right for you.
Workout CBD Balms
CBD balms and salves are also great for a post-workout cooldown thanks to their potential to reduce exercise-induced inflammation.
Like topical ointments and lotions, hemp-derived balms are absorbed quickly. However, they provide the unique benefit of interacting with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). Not to mention that CBD is more sustainable, eco-friendly, and environmentally conscious than some of its more mass-produced counterparts.
It’s a huge reason athletes, bodybuilders, influencers, and health advocates alike are starting to be more vocal about using CBD salves.
All In All
While clinical studies and research on CBD are still ongoing, CBD and other cannabinoids have captured the attention of scientists and consumers alike. Findings to date provide promising evidence that CBD-infused topicals—like hemp salves and muscle balms—can be effective at managing muscle soreness and exercise-induced inflammation.
