Want to learn how you can incorporate CBD products into your skincare routine?
In this post, we’re going to outline an example skincare routine that incorporates quite a few CBD skincare products from CANN & Co.
Whether you decide to adopt this routine yourself, or just take inspiration from what you learn below, and incorporate CBD into your existing skincare routine, this guide is sure to be helpful. Read on and get all of the details.
Your morning skincare routine should be all about cleaning up your skin, restoring its moisture, and protecting it from the elements, such as the sun, the weather, and pollutants. A great morning routine will restore your skin’s glow and keep it healthy throughout the rigors of your daily life.
1. Start with a Gentle Cleanser
It’s always best to begin your morning with a gentle cleanser, such as our CBD Face Cleanser. Just splash your face with a bit of warm water, then apply your cleanser and rub into the skin in an upward circular motion to wash away skin cells and other debris that collect on your face overnight. Then, rinse your face with a warm damp cloth, and you’ll be good to go!
2. Balance Skin pH with our Toner
Next, it’s a good idea to apply a toner to your face, like our CBD Face Toner. This toner helps hydrate your skin with aloe and hemp oil, which balances its pH and helps keep it healthy and bright. While some folks may choose to skip this step, we believe that toners are a great way to deliver more essential vitamins and minerals to your skin, so we highly recommend incorporating toner into your routine.
3. Apply Antioxidant Serum
An antioxidant serum, like our CBD Radiance Cream with Collagen and Retinol, is a highly-concentrated blend of antioxidants, vitamins, collagen and retinols, which is ideal for treating things like wrinkles and fine lines. A little goes a long way, so apply your antioxidant skin sparingly in the areas that you think need the most TLC.
4. Use Eye Cream to Protect Delicate Skin
No matter how old you are, using an eye cream to help keep your eyes looking bright and beautiful is an essential step. As you age, the skin around your eyes will tend to thin out, so preventive care is one of the best ways to keep it healthy. Applying our CBD Eye Cream will help keep your skin looking full, bright, and beautiful.
5. Apply Spot Treatment (If Applicable)
If you struggle with acne, or you have issues like dark spots on your skin or other blemishes, now is the time to apply any spot treatments that you may be using. It’s a good idea to always apply spot treatments before moisturizing, as this helps ensure they can soak into your skin fully.
6. Moisturize Your Skin
The next step you should take to prepare your skin for the day is to moisturize with our CBD Day & Night Face Moisture. Moisturizing is arguably the most important part of any skincare routine. Properly moisturizing helps keep your skin from becoming too dry – or too oily – and ensures that your skin has all the nutrients that it needs to stay healthy throughout the day.
7. Apply Sunscreen to Protect Yourself from UV Rays
As the final step of your skincare routine, you should apply a sunscreen with a 30+ SPF – not just to your face, but to every part of your body that will be exposed to the sun. It’s usually a good idea to use a separate, non-greasy sunscreen for your face, and to use a more inexpensive sunscreen lotion on the rest of your body.
UV damage is the single biggest cause of premature skin aging, and too much sun exposure increases your risk of many different types of skin and facial cancers. Make sure you don’t skip this step!
Your evening routine should be all about removing makeup and dirt, pollutants, and skin cells that have built up on your face throughout the day and giving your skin the nutrients it needs to repair itself while you sleep. Here is a sample evening skincare routine from which you can take inspiration!
1. Remove Makeup
First, you should remove your makeup, if you’re wearing any, with a gentle makeup remover. In the past, alcohol makeup removers were quite popular, but they have fallen out of favor in recent years as they tend to dry out your skin.
Instead, consider using a cleansing oil. Cleansing oils consist of essential oils which are usually blended with a neutral carrier oil, and vitamins and nutrients. These oils help cut through makeup and remove it without drying out the skin.
2. Cleanse Your Skin
Next, you should use your daily cleanser, such as our CBD Face Cleanser, to remove any remaining dirt, oils, and makeup from your face. This will help remove sebum, skin cells, and any other contaminants that may interfere with the rest of your nighttime skincare routine, and prepare your skin to accept the nutrients it needs for restoration.
3. Apply Toner and Other Essences or Boosters
If you typically use a toner in the day, you should use it at night, too. Using our CBD Face Toner at night will ensure you keep your skin healthy.
Some people also opt to use skin essences or boosters, which are usually water-based and infused with ingredients like hyaluronic acid. These products can help moisturize your skin and hydrate it, and they’re quite lightweight, so it’s a good idea to use them alongside your toner, and before applying heavier products.
4. Apply Eye Cream
Eye creams like our CBD Eye Cream should ideally be applied twice per day. As mentioned in the daytime routine section, the skin around your eyes is extremely thin and delicate, and it needs proper hydration and nourishment to remain healthy while you age. You can apply a slightly heavier layer of eye cream at night, as it will have more time to penetrate skin cells while you sleep.
5. Use Specialized Treatment Serums, Creams and/or Pads
If you use any specialized serums, pads, and creams to treat specific areas of your skin, now is the right time to apply them. You can use products like our CBD Décolletage & Neck Cream to tighten and tone the skin on your neck and chest, or use our CBD Age Fighting Cream with Apple Stem Cells to help fight back against wrinkles, fine lines, and blemishes on your face.
6. Apply Moisturizer or Night Cream
As the final step of your evening skincare routine, you should re-apply your moisturizer, such as our CBD Day & Night Face Moisture. However, if you feel like your skin could use some extra nourishment – if you’re in an extremely dry environment, for example – you can choose to use a night cream, instead.
Night creams are typically heavier than daily moisturizers, and deliver more concentrated hydration and nutrients, which can help your skin recover from exposure to the elements, dry weather, and other such things.
Everyone’s Skin is Different
One thing that’s important to realize about skincare is that everyone’s skin is different, and improvements don’t occur overnight. Please be patient when implementing the suggestions above which will serve to augment, enhance or replace your current routine. We all have different skin types, different blemishes, and different lifestyles – so there’s no such thing as a “one-size-fits-all” skincare routine.
Don’t forget, the routine above is a suggestion which you should use as a guide to customize your own routine for your unique skin. Not everyone will need to follow each step in our suggested routine – if you don’t wear makeup, for example, you won’t need to remove it. And if you don’t have that much time to spend on skincare each morning and evening, you can certainly shorten or remove some of these steps and customize your skincare routine to meet your own needs.
As long as you are cleansing, moisturizing, and protecting your skin from the elements in the morning, and taking steps to remove contaminants, clean your skin, and nourish it at night using our CANN & Co. CBD Skin Care Products we are certain your skin will look great.
Of course, it’s important to choose the right skincare products, too. We’ve suggested quite a few of our CANN & Co. products. These products are formulated to provide powerful skin nourishment and give your skin the vitamins and minerals you need to keep your skin looking great throughout the day. So, we recommend trying a few of them – alongside your current skincare products – and seeing if they’re right for you.
Developing a great skincare routine takes time, and quite a bit of trial and error. But if you follow the steps outlined above, you’ll be able to find out what works for your skin and look your very best. So, get started today!
