CBD Skin Care Brands That Live Up To The Hype

CBD has grown in popularity over the last few years. According to WebMD, Cannabidiol, otherwise known as CBD, is a chemical in the cannabis Sativa plant that contains no psychoactive side effects. It's one of the many cannabinoids, or chemicals, that make up the cannabis plant.

CBD has many benefits. It can help with everything from seizure disorders to pain and anxiety, per Health. Many people are familiar with the impact CBD can have on both mental and physical strain, but many are unaware that the product can be great for your skin as well.

CBD can even help with acne and hyperpigmentation (via Healthline). It helps by lessening inflammation caused by irregularities in the endocannabinoid system. Licensed esthetician Danielle Frey told Healthline, "The endocannabinoid system is a complex matrix of cell receptors responsible for balancing many key functions of the skin, such as oil production, melanocyte production (also known as pigmentation), and much more." She added, "CBD is an incredibly effective ingredient in skincare due to it being a powerful antioxidant and providing anti-inflammatory benefits."

Adding CBD skincare to your routine might enhance your overall skin health. But with so many on the market, you might be unsure of what brands to start with.

Vertly Skincare

If you're searching the web for the best CBD skincare brands, you'll likely run into Vertly. According to Credo Beauty, the brand uses the therapeutic properties of CBD to soothe and clear the skin. The products are locally sourced in Northern California and contain fresh herbs. The brand is natural and eco-friendly, too.

If you want to try out some products from Vertly, Healthline recommends the Glowing Face Serum, Soothing Floral Face Mist, and the Lip Butter. The products are made daily, so you know what you are putting on your face is fresh. The lip balm has the best reviews, with fans of the brand stating it cured their pesky chapped lips for good!

The brand also makes a line of body products, including bath salts infused with CBD. If you are looking for a skincare pick-me-up or a soak for your muscle aches, Vertly is the brand for you.

Saint Jane

Sephora fans will love this product line. According to Byrdie, Saint Jane is a full CBD line made by a former executive of the beauty superstore. Its product with the biggest cult following is the Luxury Beauty Serum. This serum includes 500 milligrams of CBD! While the price tag certainly reflects this, coming in at $125 per bottle, it does have rave reviews.

According to Who What Wear, after using the product mixed with a regular moisturizer, users found an enhancement in the overall glow of their skin. The product also seems to do exactly what is advertised, reviewers gush. And just look how chic that bottle is!

Glamour even called the product a "miracle elixir." The outlet noted that redness faded quickly after using the product. And with how little you use per day, the steep price tag is worth it for how long it lasts. CBD skincare just might be the answer to all of your skin's problems.
