CBD lotions and creams have become very popular over the past few years. Many manufacturers make a multitude of claims as to the uses and benefits of infusing CBD into topicals. The real question is, does adding CBD into the skin care products really help?
The answer may surprise you. According to dermatologist Patricia Farris, “We know it’s a strong antioxidant — stronger than vitamin C and vitamin E, more like a botanical antioxidant, so that’s always helpful because it protects collagen and stops DNA damage and protects from sun damage,” said Dr. Farris, who recently spoke about CBD at the American Academy of Dermatology’s annual meeting. “It also can act as an anti-inflammatory for people with rosacea, eczema or acne.”
Another dermatologist Dr. Joshua Zeichner said, “There is data suggesting that it lowers oil production in the skin, making it useful in treating patients with acne-prone skin.”
