How To Use CBD Oil As Part Of Your Daily Skin Regimen

Cannabidiol or CBD is a naturally-occurring compound in the Cannabis sativa plant. This substance can promote numerous health benefits for the body, mind, and skin. But, using CBD oil as part of your daily skin regimen might seem confusing at first. Here are three ways to help you use CBD oil for your daily (or nightly) skin care routine. 

Find High-Quality CBD Oil

Search for CBD oil-infused products on the Internet, and you’ll see hundreds or even thousands of online sellers. However, you can’t use just any CBD skin care product you find, or you put yourself at risk of using substandard goods that carry adverse effects.

Instead, maintain due diligence in scouring the marketplace for high-quality CBD oil. Follow these quick tips to help you end up with high-quality CBD skin care products:● The product should state that CBD is, in fact, part of its ingredients. ● Search for the total CBD content in milligrams (mg). The brand showing the amount of CBD in the skincare product is a good indicator that the item is legitimate. ● Ask the supplier or manufacturer for third-party lab test results. This documentation should reveal the total concentration of CBD in the skincare product. 

At this point, you might already be searching the Internet for high-quality CBD products. See this here for examples of the creams, balms, salves, and other CBD-infused products you should use on your skin. 

Do A Spot Test

If you’re shopping around the neighborhood for CBD oil products for your skin, ask the retailer if you can sample the goods. You should do a spot test to ensure that you don’t gain an allergic reaction.

A spot test is a relatively quick and straightforward method to see if the product is safe to use. Apply a small amount of CBD oil on your skin. Wait for a few minutes, and if you don’t feel any adverse reactions, chances are you can use this particular product for your daily skin regimen. But, if you feel itchiness, swelling, or any uncomfortable reaction from the administration of the CBD oil, discontinue using it. Find other CBD oils that are safer to use on your skin. 

Take note that a spot test is only possible when using topical products. CBD creams, balms, and salves are a few examples of topical skincare products you can find on the market. But, you may also use tinctures and sprays as parts of your daily skin care routine. 

Gauge your skin’s reaction upon the administration of CBD oil. You can reapply if necessary, but be careful not to overdose as this organic substance might deliver adverse effects if mishandled. Some potential side effects that you may experience include dry skin and nausea. 

Several of these side effects won’t be detrimental to your well-being or quality of life. However, if the adverse reactions don’t dissipate soon, discontinue the use of the product and consult a medical professional’s advice.

Use Edibles And Pills

Aside from CBD topicals and tinctures, you can also use CBD oil-infused products that don’t involve rubbing the substance on your skin. Other CBD oil forms you can consider for your daily skin regimen are edibles and pills. 

CBD capsules and pills are excellent choices for people who live “on-the-go” lifestyles. Consuming these products don’t require you to calculate for the dose as each capsule or pill should already have a predetermined amount of the organic substance in it. 

Furthermore, you don’t need to prepare for CBD concoctions when you consume CBD capsules or pills. Just pop a capsule or pill in your mouth, and you should reap the benefits of the organic compound. 

Consequently, you can also eat CBD edibles for the benefit of your skin. Choose from a range of CBD-infused food and beverages, such as brownies, smoothies, and cookies. These edibles can be excellent snacks to help you stay away from hunger pangs throughout the day. Plus, you’ll gain the benefits from CBD for your skin if you eat these snacks. 

Consuming CBD can promote benefits for the skin, such as:● Improving hydration● Enhancing skin elasticity● Improving and removing acne breakouts● Restoring the skin’s natural pH balance● Reducing the signs of aging skin (e.g., wrinkles and fine lines)


Several CBD oil users reap the many benefits of this naturally-occurring substance by adding CBD-infused products to their daily skin regimen. Remember to use high-quality CBD oil and do a spot check to see if the product suits your skin. If you experience any adverse effects from the CBD skin care product’s administration, contact a health professional immediately for expert advice.

Moso for every room in your home!

Moso Bags are a very simple andeffective solution for a smelly refrigerator, providing odorless and chemical-free resultswithin hours of placement! These bags might be small but they are mighty: All-natural bamboo charcoal contains millions of tiny pores that can attract and absorb odors, bacteria, chemicals and moisture from the fridge like a magnetic sponge (including spoiled produce or foods with strong scents like fish). They also keep your produce fresh by absorbing ethylene gas, a naturally occurring gas from fruits and vegetables that causes them to ripen quickly.Moso Bags are also reusable for up to 2 years, ensuring the fridge is fresh year-round.

There are so many places you can put the MOSO bag! Here are some ideas for around our home.

1. Car – It absorbs any food, smoke or random forgotten diapers, dog smells!

2. Nursery – Keeping one in and by the diaper genie is one of the best ways to keep smells at bay

3. Kitchen – In the fridge! My mom use to put open boxes of baking soda but these cute little Moso bags work well too.  Under the sink by the wet trash can too

4. Bathroom – What about just absorbing moisture and mildew type smells? Yes!

5. Bedroom – In the closets to keep clothes smelling – In Vegas, the casinos all have smoke so if you go out, your clothes might smell of smoke when you get back so this is a life saver.

All bags are fragrance-freenatural annon-toxic. For space saving convenience, a suction cup is also included to hang the bag out of the way of groceries. MSRP $8.95 and available online at
