WORDS MAISIE JANE DANIELS
Cannabidiol, better known as CBD is said to have many healing benefits, helping to treat anxiety, muscle pain and even giving us a better night's kip but what can it do for our skincare? We wanted to delve in skin-first to see what effects this may have and whether it's for the natural glow, hydrated skin, or for some self-love and care, these products will have you feeling high, but not for the same reason it's sister compound tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), would have, on life!
FLORAL COLLAGEN MAGIC FACE OIL
J'tanicals really pull it out of the bag (or should we say out of the hat) with this magic by name, magic by nature CBD Face Oil. With a tagline that reads 'the facial oil for oily skin', they aim to break down those myths that if you have oily skin you should avoid oils in your skincare regime. It's all about having the right oils and with 3.3% CBD, this anti-oxidant agent has powerful sebum-regulating properties to reduce the overproduction of sebum, resulting in fewer clogged pores and blemishes, whilst reducing irritation and redness. You notice the results instantly as skin feels smooth, hydrated and revitalised with no congestion!
