Just as the seasons change, so do our skincare needs along with them. For some, spring can bring relief of dryer skin conditions, but for others, the temperature swings can leave skin blotchy, red, irritated–the exact opposite of how you want your skin to look and feel when the sun is finally shining. Enter CBD serum to help target your skin’s evolving needs. Here’s why you need a serum in your spring skincare routine, what to look for, and how best to work CBD serum into your existing skincare routine now, and all year long.
CBD serums offer powerful treatment benefits
“One of the most appealing benefits of CBD serum is that it acts not just as a moisturizer, but as a highly effective daily treatment,” notes Sarah Mirsini, founder of MASK CBD Skincare.
“While MASK CBD serums use hydrating ingredients as their base, each of the serums also use powerful natural and organic botanical ingredients to target specific skin concerns, from anti-aging and dryness to acne-prone skin. The beauty of serums is that they’re practically weightless and easily penetrate the surface of skin to address issues at the source. They also pair incredibly well with the moisturizer you already use in your daily routine.”
The serum ingredients to look for
While choosing a non-toxic skin serum should always be the goal, it’s also important to look for natural ingredients that are renowned for their abilities to nourish skin and work effectively to address your skin concerns.
Choosing a skin serum with full spectrum CBD ensures your skin will receive all the payoffs of CBD, including the ability to soothe inflammation, helping to regulate oil production, powerful antioxidants, and moisturizing benefits.
Next, look for ingredients that hydrate skin immediately, like aloe vera and hyaluronic acid.
“We use hyaluronic acid in our CBD serums because it can hold 1,000 times its weight in water. That means when applied in a serum, it acts like a tall drink of water, leaving skin looking plumper, revitalized, and healthier looking.”
Finally, choose a CBD serum with ingredients that help to brighten skin, from Kakadu Plum Extract and Broccoli Extract to Vitamin C (found in MASK formulas). These will help impact skin’s radiance, leaving it looking brighter, more even, and more vibrant.
How to fit CBD serum into your existing skincare routine
The good news about CBD serum? It fits effortlessly into your existing skincare routine. Simply add a couple of drops of serum to your face and neck after cleansing and before moisturizing.
If you’re using a toner, apply the serum post- toner. Give the serum a minute to sink into skin, then apply your moisturizer as you normally would. With continued use of your MASK CBD Skincare serum, skin may appear plumper, calmer, and more luminous–with fewer fine lines and wrinkles.
Over time, this added dose of hydration and targeted natural ingredients may help to balance skin, making it clearer and more predictable, no matter what season your skin is facing.
“The beauty of MASK CBD skin serum is that it’s a product you didn’t know you needed, but once you use it, you can’t figure out how you ever lived without it,” says Mirsini. “It’s so easy to use, and you don’t need a lot, but the differences are noticeable. It’s kind of remarkable how much of an impact just a few drops of CBD skin serum can make!”
