As we slip into summer, people are more concerned about going out in the sun. Today we’re talking about CBD Beauty & Sun Damage DIY!
But what if you just want some healthy-looking skin or a DIY sunblock?
What if you don’t want to use any harsh chemicals on your skin but still want it protected with a generous SPF? Read on!
The solution is CBD beauty products.
CBD is the cannabinoid in cannabis that is shown to have the best anti-inflammatory properties for anyone suffering from acne or psoriasis (both serious and common conditions).
In addition, CBD can also be effective at controlling excess oil production on the skin.
Oil production increases when you’re in the sun, causing your skin to feel extra greasy. Yuck!
That’s when acne pops up, literally!
CBD oil is an excellent solution for fresh-looking skin during the summertime.
CBD oils combined with good SPF can act as a shield against harmful UV rays, while also keeping excess oil production under control.
Chemical sunscreens are usually made of chemicals that absorb UV rays and prevent your skin from absorbing them.
Most of these chemical sunscreens also contain a lot of toxic ingredients, which can irritate your skin over time.
Choosing a natural, or as natural-as-you-can sunscreen is going to nurture your skin for years to come.
To make your own CBD sunscreen, you need:
Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl and transfer to a squeeze bottle.
You can use this as regular sunscreen, and see how it works for you.
If you want to make a body lotion, then add more CBD oil and cocoa butter!
Please note that this is not a researched and lab-tested recipe, and results may vary from person to person.
This is a fun DIY CBD beauty recipe idea that may not work for everyone.
If you’re not a fan of the greasy feeling that oil-based sunscreens leave on your skin, then here’s another option.
Make your own cannabis spray sunscreen and take it along to the beach.
To make your own fun cannabis spray sunscreen, you just need:
Then, add 1 tbsp of water and all of the above ingredients to a clean and washed spray bottle and shake vigorously to blend the ingredients together.
