CBD for Anti-Aging SKIN CARE
D id you know that aging is an inflammatory condition? Since CBD contains anti-inflammatory agents that combat inflammatory production which ages skin, it only makes sense to include CBD into your daily skin care regime!
True, CBD treats rosacea and acne by balancing sebum, (making it beneficial for sensitive skin cases) but it is also a potent ant-oxident too! It has properties that fight free radicals making it an ideal primary ingredient in skin care products.
Is CBD better than vitamin C? Yes, CBD exhibits much more antioxidant activity (30–50%) than α-tocopherol or vitamin C!
CBD has been shown in studies to control redox balance in skin by modifying the level and activity of both oxidants and antioxidants. CBD, like other antioxidants, interrupts free radical chain reactions, capturing free radicals or transforming them into less active forms.
In laboratory studies, CBD has been found to be an antioxidant with even more antioxidant quality than Vitamin C (ascorbate) or Vitamin E (α-tocopherol)! Antioxidants disable the free radicals’ abilities to steal electrons by donating their own electrons to the cell, thus keeps free radicals away from our healthy cells and DNA particles. n doing so, they break the chain reaction that can eventually lead to degenerative diseases.
