Beauty Trend Spotlight: CBD Oil

CBD stands for cannabidiol and it’s one of the more unusual beauty trends of the moment given it’s derived from the hemp plant, a cousin to marijuana. CBD boasts a number of skin benefits because it’s rich in fatty acids and natural emollients that can help hydrate and smooth the skin. Its anti-inflammatory properties are also excellent for soothing aches and pains, as well as treating irritated skin conditions like eczema.

So if you’re looking to incorporate CBD into your beauty routine, here are a few products to get you started.
