I had the lovely pleasure of getting my last Clear & Brilliant + Permea Wand treatment done before we head out of Tucson. C&B + Permea has truly been one of my most favorite treatments! In just 3 treatments, they say that you get up to 60% of new skin! It’s that effective of a laser. So as I just had my 3rd treatment done, I was offered a nifty CBD face mask to help soothe any irritation, heat, etc. from the C&B treatment. Of course, I absolutely jumped on it because we know from past blogs & from our own personal experience, that CBD oil can be really helpful. But this got us thinking, while we’ve touched upon CBD oil in skincare, we hadn’t specifically focused on sheet masks or face masks. Having had such a great experience with the one offered at Tucson Cosmetics, I thought it would be worth a blog post!
Here is the mask I got at Tucson Cosmetics. I believe this is Dr. Rubbani’s branded skincare & I am unable to find it online. But if you’re in this neck of the woods, go see her.
What is CBD?:
For a quick refresher or maybe you’re not familiar with CBD, but….CBD (cannabidiol) is a really just a naturally occurring chemical compound found in cannabis (i.e. marijuana). Unlike THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD does not have psychoactive properties. While the jury is still out on CBD oil – i.e. the health benefits of CBD are still being researched – it is gaining a lot of momentum in the wellness community. Whether it’s mental health or beauty, there are all sorts of in-between’s.
The topical benefits of CBD in skincare:
- Keeps oil production low
- Improves suppleness
- Improves skin softness
- Protects skin’s collagen and elastin
- Helps with dermatitis & eczema type symptoms
- Prevents acne
- Helps improve fine lines & wrinkles
- Protects skin from damage & the effects of aging (i.e. free radicals)
- Helps heal wounds & cuts
- Improves overall skin health – because of nutrients, vitamins, fatty acids, minerals, proteins
