Cubid CBD skincare for dry hands

We’re finally out of those cold winter months, summer is in sight and that harsh dry skin we’ve all been suffering from should be long gone. Then an unforeseen pandemic got its grip on the world and we’ve found ourselves washing our hands more frequently than ever. When hand washing isn’t an option, more and more of us are relying on alcohol-based hand sanitisers. Suddenly, those dry winter hands didn’t seem that bad at all, because now we’re suffering from extremely dry, chapped hands and brittle nails.


What causes dry skin?

The more we wash our hands, the more we strip away moisture. Whatever natural protective oils are left on the skin’s surface are washed down the drain when we combine water and soap. Not only does this leave the hands exposed, it can also cause further irritation. This can lead to inflamed and raw looking skin.


How might CBD help my dry skin?

One of the main benefits of CBD to the human body is its anti-inflammatory properties, which have been identified in several studies to aid in fighting skin inflammation. It’s this benefit which can help prevent dry and inflamed skin, as well as aid in the repair process. 

CBD is a natural fit in our skincare routines because it’s full of fatty acids and antioxidants, like omega 3 and 6, which help promote moisturised skin and maintain elasticity.

Research shows CBD extracts can contain more effective antioxidants than Vitamin E and C. These antioxidant properties in CBD help to protect the skin from free radicals and pollution which can damage healthy skin cells and cause premature aging.


The Endocannabinoid System

CBD works with the endocannabinoid system in the body. This is a microscopic chain of receptors all living beings possess. The body produces these cannabinoid receptors (there are two types, CB1 and CB2) which interact with CBD when it is introduced to our systems. 

When taken orally, the endocannabinoid system can treat inflammation from the inside. But on the surface of the skin, CBD has also proven effective in treating localised inflammation through the endocannabinoid system. Meanwhile the antioxidants and fatty acids present help soothe irritation and restore moisture.

The reason this is allowed to happen in the skin is all down to the widespread presence of the two types of cannabinoid receptors in the body which tend to show up near our organs. And with the skin being our largest organ, it responds well to CBD with these receptors carrying out their work. 

The next key element is hydration. Excessive hand washing and regular use of alcohol-rich hand sanitisers often leads to dehydrated skin. CBD-infused creams can help improve hydration levels in our skin

In some extreme cases of dry skin, often skin diseases, dermatologists may prescribe topical steroid creams, which act as anti-inflammatory medicines. For people that like to avoid using steroid ointments, some doctors suggest CBD could be used as a non-steroidal alternative. While CBD works as an anti-inflammatory, the emollient nature of hemp oil, the base of every CUBID CBD product, works as a barrier to help protect the skin to allow it a chance to heal.


How to use CBD for dry hands

The easiest way to treat dry skin with CBD is with a hand cream.  

Choosing good quality CBD skincare is a must. The key is investing in a seriously hydrating moisturiser with high quality CBD. Re:new Hand & Nail Cream by CUBID CBD is made with 250mg of broad spectrum hemp oil containing 66% CBD and other cannabinoids, perfect for intensively re-hydrating dry hands. 

The next step is to moisturise, moisturise, moisturise. In the same way we must regularly wash our hands, it’s vital to be regularly applying your moisturiser. We recommend applying a coin-sized amount a minimum of twice a day, or whenever you feel your hands and nails need some extra care.

CBD

An ingredient that carries with it a wealth of beneficial properties, CBD is gaining a reputation as an anti-inflammatory powerhouse. If you’ve been searching for a supplement that can relieve pain, reduce inflammation and improve mood, look no further than CBD

While hugely beneficial to the millions of people who use it, we understand that an ingredient which is extracted from cannabis may be cause for concern for some readers. That’s why we’ve created this article to help put to rest any worries or questions you’ve had about what CBD is and where it comes from. 


What Is CBD

CBD is an abbreviation of cannabidiol, a beneficial compound from a group known as cannabinoids, which are found in the cannabis plant. Another of these cannabinoids is THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, which is responsible for the inebriating qualities you may think of when you hear the word ‘cannabis’.

However, cannabis is in fact not a single plant, but a family of plants which includes hemp and marijuana. While marijuana is high in THC, hemp is biologically very different. The hemp plant has been used for centuries in the manufacture of cloth, paper and rope, thanks to its easy cultivation, hardy nature and fibrous stalk. Importantly, it is naturally low in THC, allowing the beneficial CBD to be extracted without any of the mind-altering aspects of its sister-plant.


How Does It Work?

Our body has an internal endocannabinoid system which is involved in everything from mood and appetite to inflammation and pain. As a phyto(plant)cannabinoid, CBD is able to enter this system and impact the cannabinoid receptors, helping to rebalance the body. 

Studies have found that CBD is able to reduce the perception of pain, control inflammation in conditions including arthritis and IBS, and improve the symptoms of a wide range of conditions.  


Who Can Benefit From Using CBD?

If you have a chronic health condition that stems from inflammation or results in you experiencing pain, taking CBD regularly is an option well worth exploring. Thanks to its pain-relieving qualities, it can also be great to throw in your gym bag for using as and when it’s needed. CBD also naturally reduces anxiety, which can benefit those struggling with stress, insomnia or low mood.

Always speak to a doctor before using CBD, as it can counteract some medications, including antidepressants and antibiotics. 


What Products Contain CBD?

CBD is available in many forms and can be used in different ways depending on the condition you are struggling with. While the fastest effects come from inhaling the CBD in vape form, there are less invasive, more discreet options also available. Here are a few of our favourites:

CBD Balm

Whether you have painful arthritis in your joints or simply want something to soothe those post-exercise muscles, a balm is a great choice. Applied directly to the desired area, the CBD absorbs into your skin’s receptors and gets to work alleviating pain. 

Try Healthspan CBD Balm 180mg 30ml.


CBD Drops

Taken under the tongue, oral drops are one of the most effective ways to take your CBD as they absorb directly into your system via the thin tissue. 

Try Naturopathica CBD 350mg Oil


CBD Capsules

In terms of ease of use, nothing is much more straightforward than taking your CBD in capsule form. This option does take a little longer to take effect but is an easy way to incorporate CBD into your daily routine, making it particularly good for chronic conditions.
