Listen up, we’re here with a very important public service announcement: CBD skin care is for everyone!
After a recent review of the CBD skin care market and industry we concluded that the majority of products and campaigns are directed towards women. The cosmetics industry in general is weighted heavily towards women, but this shouldn’t continue to be the case. Skin isn’t a gendered issue, we all have it, and we should all take care of it.
We hope that none of the men in our Reakiro community are missing out on the great benefits of CBD skin care. To all the guys, if this is your first time hearing about the natural skin care revolution here are the top key benefits:
Acne, eczema and psoriasis
Acne, eczema and psoriasis are skin conditions which can affect anyone at any point in their lives. Acne can be triggered by a number of things, but one of the key contributors is an overproduction of sebum - the oily substance secreted from the face. When there is too much sebum this clogs up the pores, and the buildup of bacteria leads to the aggravated red blemishes associated with acne. CBD can control and regulate the production of sebum,1 ultimately calming the onset of acne.
Eczema and psoriasis are both conditions which makes the skin overly dry and cracked, which worsens when itched due to irritation. To avoid inflicting harsh chemicals onto already sensitive skin, CBD has become a popular moisturising option. The National Eczema Association suggested that this may be because the cannabinoid has a “powerful anti-itch effect” - as well as anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial (fights microorganisms) properties.
Looking after your muscles post workout is as vital a part of the routine as the workout itself. When we push ourselves during exercise this causes muscles to rub up against each other, meaning they can tear and they will be inflamed. To address this it is vital to apply an anti-inflammatory (such as CBD) to soothe the muscles and reduce recovery time. If you ignore this pain and try and work through it too quickly this can be damaging. Check out our muscle recovery products.
Keeps the skin young
To maintain those youthful good looks, hydration is key. Some may say that you can’t be forever young, but we say they’re skeptics! Well, age is only natural, but with the correct skin care you can keep the effects minimal. CBD creams carry deep moisturising properties, with essential fatty acids and additional natural ingredients such as vitamin E.
