Breaking the Stigma with Skincare

I've never had anything to do with CBD until the skincare trend came along - and I'm glad I got a chance to try it out. 

CBD products ended up in my hands from two brands that are honestly some of my favourites - BYBI Beauty and Evio.

I've always been a little hesitant to have anything to do with CBD and will admit that I haven't been keeping up with the growing popularity since legalization. I really do trust brands like BYBI and Evio though, so I wanted to give it a try for the sake of my skin. I also heard both brands mention all the skincare benefits from CBD - and it made me curious to see how my skin would react to it.

CBD oil is from plant flowers and leaves. It is used in skincare for the benefit of reducing redness and helping to soothe and relax skin. These products do not contain THC (the component in Cannabis that gives you a “high”).

The first product I tried were these biodegradable cleansing wipes made with hemp fibres by Evio Beauty

They completely remove makeup (and do a really good job at it!) plus they hydrate your skin.

They are infused with cannabis sativa seed oil to reduce inflammation and avoid irritation (caused by most wipes), while green tea adds a burst of antioxidants to your skin and helps fight the signs of aging.

I love how soft they are and how effective they are at taking off my full coverage foundation, eye shadow and waterproof mascara. Such a good wipe and super handy when I need a quick clean up at the end of a really long day!

Next, I have this CBD booster from BYBI

This one contains 100mg Cannabidiol in hemp oil. It's designed to be used as part of your existing routine as a daily skin destressor. CBD oil has powerful calming properties and is great for blemish-prone, sensitized or irritated skin that’s feeling stressed. 

Cannabidiol is an antioxidant-rich, skin-soothing ingredient which helps reduce redness and generally calm blemish-prone, inflamed or damaged skin. Since this product is designed not to clog or block pores, it's great for my oily acne-prone skin. 

After just one week of using this face oil, I saw improvement in my overall complexion. My skin appeared brighter, acne scars looked more faded and I experienced healing of blemishes as well.

Lastly, I started using this Evio Beauty sleeping mask. I love putting this on right before bed and having my skin soak up the light moisture of this mask. I really enjoy waking up the next morning and feeling how soft my skin is too!

The natural fatty acids and antioxidants found in hemp seed oil make it great for dry and sensitive skin, but I really like the effects it has on my oily skin as well. 

Together, these products have helped my skin reduce in redness and overall - feel better. I have really enjoyed incorporating them into my skincare routine and I can now say that I've tried CBD products - skincare products that is!
