CBD For Skin
Your skin is your largest organ and your most exposed one. It plays a vital role in your personal ecosystem, protecting you from infection, harsh conditions and regulating your temperature. Your skin also acts as a sensory organ — your skin allows you to feel if something is soft or hard, warm or cold. Without it, none of us would be here — so how do you cherish and take care of your skin?
We have three tips for healthier skin that can help you feel your best.
1. Prevent and Reduce Sun Damage
This doesn’t mean you can’t go outside ever. Instead, it means keeping the sun from directly harming your skin.
Sunscreen is your best friend if you have to be outside — apply liberally and often. Use SPF 15 as a minimum and apply more frequently if you’re sweating or swimming. Try to avoid chemical sunscreens and instead stick to ones based on Zinc, as they aren’t absorbed into your bloodstream.
Additionally, you can avoid being out in the sun when it’s at its strongest, usually between 11 am and 3 pm. Wearing long sleeves and long pants, hats, or special sun-blocking clothing is an alternative to sunscreen for those who dislike the additional chemicals.

2. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate!
We say it three times because it’s that important to hydrate appropriately. First, hydrate from the inside out — start by drinking an appropriate amount of water for your weight. Some scientists have called into question the eight glasses of water a day and suggest that your water needs are actually based on weight.
Take your weight in pounds and multiply it by 0.65, and that’s the base amount of water you should consume in ounces.
So if you weigh 170lbs, you would need to drink 110.5 ounces or 3.2 liters of water. If that seems like a lot, don’t worry — you can count any non-caffeinated beverage toward that total. That decaf mocha latte with extra foam you love after the gym? Count that toward your water!
Once you’re drinking enough water, you can start hydrating from the outside — use gentle face products that promote hydration, like CanRelieve’s CBD Face Mask. Then lock in the hydration by protecting your skin with a product like CanRelieve’s CBD Face Cream.
3. Treat Your Skin Gently
We all know not to rub the skin around our eyes too roughly or else that’ll produce wrinkles. However, overall, your skin needs to be loved gently.
That means avoiding scalding hot showers when possible. Hot showers can strip protective oils from your skin. Additionally, you can avoid strong soaps with harsh chemicals and be sure to use a daily moisturizer.
When you’re done in the shower or bath, pat your skin dry with a towel instead of rubbing. A tip from our team is that if you leave a little moisture on your skin and then apply a moisturizer on top, you can really lock in that hydration!
