4 Creative Ways to Use CBD in Your Skincare Routine
It’s no secret that we love CBD in our skincare; after all, we’ve founded an entire brand around this powerhouse ingredient!
And while our clean skincare products fit easily into any regular skincare regimen, we love that CBD can be added to other products to further benefit skin from head to toe.
Here are 4 creative ways to incorporate MASK CBD oil and CBD sheet masks in your non toxic skincare routine. Trust us–you’re going to be so glad you did!
CBD oil as a nourishing scalp treatment
From winter’s dry, hot air to summer’s sun, chlorine, and salt water, our scalps can often use some soothing, moisturizing love–but too frequently, they’re neglected as we focus on our hair. But a healthy scalp is literally at the root of healthier hair, so why not indulge your scalp in a weekly CBD oil treatment?
MASK CBD Organic Hair & Body Oil can be utilized as a highly effective scalp treatment that balances and soothes the scalp while delivering nourishing ingredients to scalp and hair.
To begin, part hair and drizzle in a few drops of CBD oil to scalp, massaging with fingertips to work into the length of the part. Then, create another part a few inches away from the original and massage several drops into the scalp. Repeat all over the scalp until you’ve emptied the dropper. If you have long or thick hair, you may need to increase the amount of oil used to 2 full droppers.
For added hair health, add half a dropper into the palm of your hand, rub hands together, and work through the ends of hair. Then, gather hair into a bun or ponytail (we love using a scrunchie here for a gentle yet firm hold). Leave in overnight for a truly decadent scalp mask, then wash and style hair as usual in the morning, taking extra time to thoroughly massage shampoo into the scalp before rinsing.
CBD sheet masks as overnight foot softener
Sandal season is upon us, and we can always use a little extra love when it comes to baring our winterized feet for the first time! To treat your feet to a CBD foot softener, wash feet with a gentle soap.
For calluses or rough spots, use a foot file or callus remover to gently exfoliate rough skin. Rinse and dry feet, then open up your MASK CBD sheet mask. Cut the mask into strips and wrap them around areas of the feet that need a little love: balls of the feet and heels, for instance.
Prop feet up while sipping your evening tea, letting the hydrating MASK CBD serum go to work. When it’s time to go to bed, leave the CBD sheet mask strips on and cover your feet with white cotton socks to allow the ingredients to work overnight. Awaken to smoother, softer feet that are ready to do your sandals justice!
Soothing body scrub with CBD oil
Exfoliating skin may seem like something that only needs to happen during a trip to the spa, but using a body scrub can whisk away dead skin cells, leaving skin radiant and more receptive to whatever products you use on skin.
To create a body scrub from ingredients that will slough off dead skin while leaving the newly revealed skin underneath looking soft and glowy, hit your pantry. Grab the coconut oil and some brown sugar, and a food processor if you have one.
If not, that’s fine! A bowl and mixing spoon will do. Add one cup brown sugar to the processor, breaking up any lumps. Then, add half a cup of coconut oil and pulse. If you’re using a bowl and spoon, just mix gently to incorporate. If the scrub feels very dry, add another half cup of oil and repeat the mixing step.
The mixture should feel like wet sand when it’s done. Play with the portions as you mix to achieve this. Once you have, add a dropper of MASK CBD oil and mix once more. Store in an airtight glass container.
The result is a gentle, highly effective body scrub that will soften and soothe skin when you use it–plus, it’s clean enough to eat!
Get manicure-like results with CBD oil
Our hands can always use a bit more love, and CBD oil can go a long way to helping them look moisturized, healthy, and even more youthful, thanks to the powerful antioxidants found in full spectrum CBD.
To treat your hands to a home spa treatment, start by rubbing a drop of cuticle oil into each cuticle. Let this moisturizing oil go to work to soften and start to soothe dry, cracked cuticles.
We love this step prior to pushing back our cuticles before painting our nails, or as a regular nighttime treatment to keep our nail beds happy.
Then, right before bed, add a drop or two of MASK CBD Organic Hair & Body Oil to your favorite hand cream (we love the Restoring Hand Cream from Ranavat or The Sleep Mask by Ten Over Ten) and work it into your hands. Cover with white cotton gloves or leave hands bare, and let the CBD oil go to work to moisturize, soften, and soothe dry or chapped hands by morning.
