Recently, there has been a lot of hype around CBD in skincare, and there’s a good reason for it. It has so many benefits! Is CBD good for your skin type? Or your skin condition? The answer is probably yes. 

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a natural compound found in Cannabis sativa plants. It’s a powerful antioxidant, which we love in skincare because they help protect the skin from oxidative stress (aka free radical damage) such as inflammation, pigmentation, and premature aging. It’s also wonderful for its anti-inflammatory properties, so it can calm down redness. If you have rosacea or acne, this could be your new skincare best friend. 

Here at The Portland Girl, we have an excellent line of CBD products from a brand called Kana Skincare. Their products are fully plant based, with no fragrances or dyes, that blend together their influences from K-Beauty, aromatherapy, and CBD. They are high-performance products formulated to give you results so you can feel confident in your skin. If you’ve booked our Honey Lavender CBD facial, then you’ve already experienced the Kana Lavender Hemp Sleeping Mask and their LIT Hemp Face Oil, but we’ve got a few new goodies in from them recently that all of us are very excited to share with you. 

First is another sleep mask that includes purple rice. Purple rice used to be known as ‘forbidden rice’ for centuries, and was only for the Chinese Emperor and his royal family. Now it’s available for you too! This ingredient preserves hyaluronic acid content in your skin to retain moisture, firmness, and smooth texture⁣⁣.This sleep mask also includes CBD, but is geared more towards anti-aging. This mask is great for firming, toning, and minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Use it all over the face, or just spot treat where you need it most.

Next up is the EGF Active Botanical Essence. EGF, or epidermal growth factor, is something your skin is already equipped with, but it diminishes as we grow older. This serum is an anti-aging game changer! It works deep down on a cellular level to rebuild and increase the cell growth. Fine lines and wrinkles don’t stand a chance!

And the newest Kana product we’ve included is the Lotus Essence Toner. Lotus flower is rich in antioxidants and calms inflammation, so it works hand in hand with CBD. It’s deeply moisturizing and revitalizing. This toner is so luxurious and beautifully formulated. Your skin will thank you for this one!

So if you’re ready to include some CBD in your skincare, come try out our Honey Lavender CBD facial, or stop in and grab one of these new products for your at-home routine.
