Beginners Guide to CBD Skincare

You’ve probably heard of CBD but do you know how to add it to your skincare routine? We take a look at the basics in this beginners guide to CBD Skincare.

You may have already heard, but CBD skincare is the hottest word in beauty right now. CBD stands for Cannabidiol, which is found in hemp and cannabis (both are essentially the same plant.) In the UK CBD is extracted from Cannabis Sativa L, also known as industrial hemp. Legally it must contain less that 0.2% of THC (the psychotropic part that gets you high) in order to be classed as CBD. So the likelihood of getting a buzz from your serum is unfortunately zero. However anything listing Cannabis Sativa Seed oil unfortunately contains no CBD as it can only be found in the bud and stalk.  CBD and Cannabis Sativa Seed oil both have  incredible anti inflammatory properties making products containing it ideal for red, stressed or acne prone skin.

Pure Boosters

If you have skin complaints like rosacea or acne, you might want to crank up the amount of CBD you use. These little bottles of golden goodness pack a powerful punch. Simply add 1-2 drops to your existing oil, serum or moisturiser. This will allow you to apply more or less, depending on how your skin looks on any given day. We tried Bybi’s CBD Booster in our usual face oil and saw a huge improvement in redness after 2 weeks.

If adding a booster oil isn’t for you, there are plenty of products on the market. They are pre mixed with other active ingredients to form highly effective products. This makes them perfect for CBD Beginners.
