CBD Hemp Oil - An Alternative Acne Treatment
Acne is a dermatological condition that is one of the most common problems among teenagers and young adults, affecting over 95% of 11- to 30-year-olds. Whilst acne may seem like a superficial issue, it can have a detrimental impact on individual’s mental well-being by reducing self-esteem and causing issues such as anxiety, stress and depression.Currently, acne cannot be cured but with treatment it can be controlled. There are many potential treatments on the market, however, they often utilise harsh chemicals which can cause lasting damage to skin. Hemp oil provides a healthier and environmentally friendly alternative to traditional acne treatments, keeping skin healthy whilst utilising natural resources.
How can Hemp Oil (CBD) Help with Acne Treatment?
Hemp oil has a multitude of different medical properties that make it beneficial to the treatment of acne. Acne forms when the skin overproduces oil and sebum which leads to a blockage of pores. Bacteria can contaminate these blocked pores, leading to infected follicles causing acne. Hemp has been proven to be to be naturally anti-bacterial, therefore application to the skin can prevent the chances of various bacterial infections. Bacteria on the skin can cause inflammation, making the appearance of acne significantly worse. Hemp oil has anti-inflammatory properties which help to prevent dry skin without clogging pores. It is also rich in omega 3 and omega 6, occurring in a ratio of 3.1 which is proposed as the ideal ratio for assisting with inflammation and skin conditions. A 2014 study into the effects of hemp oil on acne concluded that CBD hemp oil is a ‘potent and potentially universal anti-acne treatment’ and clinical trials are ongoing to fine-tune ways to take advantage of the benefits of hemp oil.
