The Science of Taking Care of Your Skin with CBD

There are many people who struggle with various skin ailments – from eczema to psoriasis to just plain, dry, itchy skin. It is something that tends to become even more pronounced when the colder, drier weather approaches. It is usually in the winter months when eczema really ramps up, and people are left feeling uncomfortable in their skin (no pun intended). If you are one of those people who, like me, struggle with finding the right type of products to use on your delicate, sensitive skin, rest assured you are not alone. Many products in stores these days are full of ingredients that exacerbate skin conditions, perfumes that irritate, and not enough moisture to combat the dryness.

Many women struggle with skin irritations like eczema and psoriasis.

With the rise in popularity that CBD has experienced in recent days, it is no surprise that people have begun to wonder whether this miracle plant might help their skin conditions. While CBD has not been found to directly treat more severe cases of eczema and psoriasis, there are some new studies that show that it can help to calm inflamed skin and settle the itching and dryness. CBD has been proven to interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system, and it turns down the inflammatory response by interacting directly with the CB1 and CB2 receptors within the body.

In a review published in 2017 in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, it was noted that patients who tried CBD creams to combat redness and itching due to eczema or psoriasis did notice a decrease in both symptoms. A 2019 study published in the journal Clinical Therapeutics, as well as a 2014 study published in The Journal of Clinical Investigation, both concluded that patients with eczema, psoriasis, or scarring did find improvement through the use of CBD ointments; redness was reduced, itching was decreased, and skin elasticity was improved, due to the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD. More studies on larger human populations are still required, but this is very encouraging for people like me who have battled skin problems for years.

The main thing that consumers need to be cautious of when trying CBD creams on skin irritations, is to make sure that the cream you are using is made of quality ingredients. If the cream is made of ingredients that are harmful or irritating to already-inflamed skin, then you will only be exacerbating the problem. That is where Verima can help you.
