Is CBD Oil Good For Acne

Is CBD Oil Good For Acne?

Today we will be talking about Acne. Acne is a very common skin condition found in most teens and can continue to affect you in adulthood too.

For some, acne can be stressful and worrisome. It could completely take away someone's confidence. It could damage their facial skin forever too if not treated properly.

We will learn today whether acne can be treated by CBD oil or not? By now we know that CBD has many potential health benefits. Is dealing with acne one of them? But, first we should discuss more about what is acne?

Acne is a skin condition that causes pimples. Acne can appear in facial areas, forehead, chest, shoulders and upper back.

Acne usually happens among teens and young adults, but it can also carry on to adulthood too.

Acne appears when the pores or hair follicles are clogged up. Hair follicles are tubes that hold your hair and when it is clogged up with fatty oil or discarded tissues it causes acne.

Three are three major reasons why your pores get clogged up:

Excess sebum. Sebum is an oily substance that protects your skin

Bacteria. Its normal to have small amount of bactural existing in your skin area, but when there is too much of it can result in infection or acne.

Dead skin cells. Your body sheds dead skin cells regularly to make space for new cells, but when dead skin cells get clogged up it will cause acne.

Trigger signs and symptoms of acne include air pollution, climate change, using oily or greasy skincare, stress, side effects from medication, eating skim milk, whey proteins and food rich in sugar.

Can CBD Oil help with acne? This is the question of the day. Researchers say there is evidence that CBD can be beneficial to skin health and acne.

It's not just CBD oil that can help with acne, but a lot of people have been using CBD topicals on breakouts and areas of the skin that are infected.

Mellow Organic has both CBD oil and CBD topicals. For CBD oil we have Mellow CBD 900mg Oil made from CBD Isolate. We also have a stronger potency CBD oil option with Mellow Full Spectrum CBD 1,800mg Oil that does not only contain CBD, but it has THC, CBN, CBG, CBC and other cannabinoids including terpenes. As for topical we have Mellow CBD Soothing Balm vanilla scented with CBD-infused topical that includes high quality ingredients.

Treatment for acne will include:

● Keeping the skin clean

● Keeping the skin clear from bacteria causing acne

● Clearing excess oil from the skin that can cause clogging in pores

Most of the research done with CBD on acne points to CBD's ability to stop acne from happening such controlling oil build up.

A journal published in The Journal of Clinical Investigation explains that researchers measured the effects of CBD on human skin samples and oil-producing glands conducted in science labs.

Researchers showed that CBD is able to stop oil production. CBD also has anti-inflammatory properties on oil producing glands.

CBD can also help treat acne along the body as acne in the body is made from the same mechanism.

Today, a lot of facial beauty products have incorporated CBD into their products because of CBD's potential therapeutic properties.

CBD oil like Mellow CBD Oil or Mellow Full Spectrum CBD Oil may not directly be marketed for acne control but don't forget that CBD has antibacterial and antibacterial properties both very essential to treating acne.

Another dilemma that comes with acne is acne scarring. Acne scarring is caused by damage in the skin due to pimples and picking of the pimple.

A study on 20 test subjects with scars from skin disorders like psoriasis and atopic dermatitis. Participants applied CBD ointments or topicals for three months and found that the skin's appearance improved significantly and there was an increase of elasticity and hydration.

CBD does not only help with acne, but it also can help treat skin disorders like:

● Eczema

● Psoriasis

● Dermatitis

● Dry itchy skin

● Wrinkles and aging skin

Before you begin using CBD oil you should seek advice from medical providers for the best solutions that will suit your needs. Be aware that CBD oil may come with side effects like fatigue, dry mouth, diarrhea and drowsiness. Always start with low dosage and increase the amount of CBD if needed to ensure that you have the best CBD experience.

Make sure that you study the ingredients and ask for lab test results or Certificate of Analysis (COA) before buying your next CBD products. Make sure that product is free from harmful chemicals, pesticides, heavy metal or microbial.
