We love the holiday season as much as the next person, but it is a frantic time of year. It’s as if we’re cramming in all of the social interaction and unfinished projects from the previous 11 months into the last 31 days. Add to that the platters of cookies and all of the Christmas spirits and, well, it’s a recipe for stressed-out skin. Thankfully, we have these CBD salves to keep things under control.
We’ve written about this body lotion before and we’re bringing it to your attention again now because it really has been a game changer for us this year. For starters, it’s a supremely effective moisturizer that’s rich but not heavy on your skin. Combine the hydrating powers of shea butter with the healing properties of CBD in the formula and there’s not a scaly patch or sore muscle it can’t soothe.
ICYMI: Hydrocolloid acne patches are what every skin picker needs this holiday season. These have salicylic acid and CBD to flatten a budding bump (you know the ones that announce their arrival before they blow up on your face) while you sleep.
This is a facial oil that’s meant for acne-prone skin. Lighter than most formulas we’ve tried and completely non-comedogenic (read: it won’t clog pores), it features cold-pressed cannabis sativa seed oil and green oregano oil to soothe inflammation and strengthen the skin barrier against further irritation. Press a few drops over your skin and inhale the herbaceous scent (which is admittedly strong at first, but oddly grounding).
This under-eye balm is one of few products that can withstand the moisture-sucking radiator that’s blasting on full heat next to our beds this time of year. Warm a small amount on your fingertip before tapping it around your eyes. Though it feels thick at first, it slowly melts into your skin and keeps any dryness at bay with a blend of CBD, Manuka honey and vitamin E.
Speaking of moisture, this clean face oil is like a green juice for your skin. Chock-full of hydrating ingredients like squalane, meadowfoam seed and coconut oils, plus skin-calming cannabidiol and ashwagandha, it calms any redness in your cheeks and gives you a nice glow no matter what the weather is up to.
