What's one aspect of personal hygiene that exploded and created its own market in 2016? Skincare — the range of practices that support skin integrity, enhance its appearance, and relieve skin conditions. They can include nutrition, avoidance of excessive sun exposure, and appropriate use of emollients.

There's a product or treatment for just about any skin issue on the market — anything from curing acne to boosting energy levels for the skin. The concept of skin care can be expensive because people believe that spot treatment is the best way to target what you don't like about your skin. But what if you could have it all in one product? That's right, you can use CBD hemp oil.

Acne

From the many studies conducted on CBD, its most popular benefit is that it has anti-inflammatory properties. You can use CBD oil to spot treat small pimples and even cystic acne to relieve your skin of the swelling and redness. This should reduce the appearance of the pimples in just a few hours.

Dry Skin and Flakiness 

Unlike typical oils that are blended to create moisturizers, CBD oil is non-comedogenic. It's rated as 0, which means that it will absolutely not clog your pores. CBD oil will sink right into your skin without leaving it feeling heavy or oily.

Depression

A popular ingredient to energizing the skin is coffee. However, coffee is known to be abrasive and can react negatively on people with an acidic skin pH. CBD oil, on the other hand, borders on the alkaline side of the pH scale, which makes it perfect for any skin type.

Sensitivity

It's a well-known fact that CBD oil works wonders on patients who have psoriasis. On a smaller scale, though, CBD oil is great for people who have sensitive skin. It can be used as a foundation primer for people who have a sensitivity towards pigments. It can even prevent skin allergies from popping up.

Wrinkles

The best way to avoid wrinkles is to prevent them. Urban legend says that it's never too early to start using anti-aging creams. However, the steroidal properties in said creams can make you age faster if you start using them at a young age. Your skin already holds enough elasticity on its own until your 30's, you don't need the extra help just yet. CBD oil, however, is packed with nutrients and anti-oxidants to feed your skin. It's not nearly as harsh as retinol or steroids.

Skincare doesn't have to be an elaborate, 12-step journey that you embark on every night before you go to sleep. Sometimes, all you need is a one hit wonder to target everything. Switch to CBD oil and see the difference.
