CBD + K-Beauty = 2020's Hottest Skincare Duo

CBD has taken the beauty world by storm! 

Major retailers like Sephora have launched their own CBD skincare lines and pop culture icons like Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Aniston are singing the praises of CBD. Even the Goop Queen herself, Gwyneth Paltrow is a huge fan.

The public agrees, too! The number of CBD users (and the CBD-curious) increase every year, and with Gen-Z users being at least twice as likely to want to try it out, it's safe to say that this trend isn't going anywhere.

Pair that with a Korean sheet mask? You've got the most Instagram-able beauty trend of 2020. 

Give our 10 mg CBD Face Mask a try! Not only are they great for #selfcare selfies, but this mask is packed with soothing plant ingredients like CBD, chamomile and rosemary that leave your skin feeling calm and rejuvenated. 

CBD in Skincare?

In case you hadn't heard, CBD, also known as cannabidiol, is a non-psychoactive ingredient found in hemp. Not to be confused with cannabis, most CBD contains less than 0.03% THC, so it won't get you high. Some anecdotal evidence claims that it can promote a sense of wellness and relaxation, but nothing has been officially proven yet.

Like most ingredients in cosmetics, the FDA has yet to approve the efficacy and safety of CBD, but more and more studies come out every day about its potential for skincare. 

One study done by The Journal of Clinical Investigation claimed that when applied to the skin, CBD has an anti-inflammatory effect (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4151231/). CBD is also used in skincare as an antioxidant and to prevent trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL), which is responsible for those dry, flaky patches on your cheeks or forehead (http://www.clinicaterapeutica.it/ojs/index.php/ClinicaTerapeutica/article/view/377/147). Some studies have even been looking in to how CBD can help with acne by regulating oil production in the skin.

Our skin is assaulted from all sides by free radicals and other environmental factors like the weather and air pollution as we move about in the world. This can cause inflammation and redness, making skin look ruddy and irritated. Anti-inflammatory ingredients help to soothe the skin and even out skin tone. They can also preserve the moisture in the skin, keeping it looking supple and hydrated. 

Cream Skin

This mask is perfect for helping you achieve one of the hottest Korean beauty trends for 2020: cream skin. This new trend calls for soft, milky, moisturized skin. (https://www.refinery29.com/en-ca/2019/12/9075945/cream-skin-korean-beauty-trend)

Unlike last year's trend, 'glass skin', which had adopters using multiple different products to achieve a dewy, shiny effect on the skin, 'cream skin' is all about using less. Most people have the perception of Korean beauty routines including upwards of 10 or more products, but not anymore. The idea behind cream skin is to use one or two products to easily achieve a pretty, creamy complexion.

If the theme for 2020 is to simplify your skincare routine then why not condense part of your routine down to a soothing, hydrating CBD face mask? 

For best results, the mask should be worn for at least 20 minutes. This is a great time to treat yourself to a relaxing foot soak or hair treatment to pass the time while our calming botanicals seep into the skin. Remember to breathe, and clear your mind. Taking time for yourself is so important in our modern, busy world, so don't skip this step.

Our mission is to provide high quality, affordable CBD. Each mask has been fully lab-tested to ensure that you're putting a safe, quality product on your skin.
