How Antioxidants and Omegas in CBD Benefit the Skin

In the past, we’ve written about the buzz around CBD and skincare and the many benefits it provides for skin and hair! With this post, we’re taking it further. Because while CBD might be the star ingredient in our formulations, there is a lot more that goes into it! One skincare product is made of many different components that are specifically chosen for maximum benefit. Each one interacts with the other, and ingredients are selected based on how well they interact with each other.


Antioxidants and omegas are present in CBD, making it a natural choice for skincare. Combined with other plant-based wonders, CBD skincare products can create a net of support for both your face and body. 


In this article, we’ll take a deeper look at antioxidants and omegas to better understand why they are so amazing for skin!


How do antioxidants in CBD benefit the skin?

In general, we know that antioxidants are powerhouse molecules that help protect your skin from damage and are vital for protecting against the effects of aging. While there has been a lot of research around antioxidants and nutrition, there isn’t as much discussion around antioxidants and CBD. 


We do know that CBD is lauded for its anti-inflammatory properties and the presence of antioxidants. Research conducted in 2019 confirms this, with findings showing that CBD continues to demonstrate antioxidant and protective properties even in early studies. Other studies have also shown that these same CBD properties can help manage inflamed skin by using CBD-enriched products


So if you’re looking for glowing skin and age prevention, it’s clear that CBD-enriched products can make a big difference! Even switching to a hydrating CBD face serum can help achieve supple, smooth, and younger skin with consistent use. 


Are omegas in CBD good for skin?

The other fundamental property for using CBD in skincare is the presence of omegas. Omegas are fatty acids that help keep skin looking hydrated, fresh, and younger. A study in 2010 found that was adding fatty-acid rich products to routine could lead to a decrease in skin sensitivity while helping improve hydration and smoothness.  


While you can attain some of your omegas through diets and supplements, it’s often not enough. Fatty-acid rich ingredients need to be part of a consistent skincare routine as well for you to see maximum benefit. Research is still being undertaken to understand the unique properties of Omega-3 and Omega-6 that are present in CBD and how they can benefit the skin. 


The omegas present in CBD could help with reducing acne and improving skin texture and hydration overall.  Products such as Bath Asana’s Synergy Facial Revival Dew are paving the way for this kind of benefit by using CBD in products. It helps achieve radiant skin, particularly in dry and sensitive environments, to help skin retain moisture and look its best. 


CBD is an exceptional ingredient that has a lot of potential for the face and body. The antioxidants and omegas present in CBD are what makes it such a powerful ingredient in transformative skincare. Combined with other plant-based ingredients, CBD-enriched products have the potential to improve skin and body long-term and provide real benefits. 


When considering skincare products, having a better idea of the ingredients and their properties can help you choose the right one for yourself. Everyone’s skin is unique, and understanding how antioxidants, omegas, and other ingredient properties can come together in a formulation can help you narrow down the best choices for yourself.
