Three Reasons to Try CBD for Your Eczema
Eczema is an all-too-common and very troublesome skin condition that affects up to 15 million Americans. There are many prescription medications available to treat it, however, many people today are choosing CBD creams as an all-natural alternative that can delivery very effective results. While there is currently just a small body of research for CBD cream use as a treatment for eczema, there is no doubt that CBD helps many people improve and maintain the health of their skin, and below are three reasons why people struggling with eczema should consider using it.
CBD has powerful anti-inflammatory properties
CBD has strong anti-inflammatory properties that can dramatically improve the state of dry skin. This happens by way of our endocannabinoid system, which are receptors that control how our body deals with sleep, our immune system, mood, and inflammation. Because eczema can only work within a damaged immune system, using products that strengthen and fortify the immune system are also helpful for keeping eczema at bay. This makes CBD creams an ideal candidate for treating eczema.
CBD strengthens the endocannabinoid system
You might have guessed by now, but a weak endocannabinoid system is a wide open back door to a variety of skin problems, besides eczema, including chronic itchiness, dermatitis, cancer, sclerosis, and psoriasis. By strengthening our skin, we are essentially erecting a powerful wall against numerous outside threats that cannot pass the endocannabinoid system. When our skin is unhealthy and weak, there is a far greater chance for eczema to begin forming and working its way across the skin. By using CBD creams regularly and correctly, we are greatly improving the performance of our most important protective barrier: our skin.
CBD helps balance oil production
Oil released from our pores is very important for maintaining healthy skin. While those of us with naturally oily skin have a little easier time adjusting to weather changes, postponing the appearance of wrinkles, and maintaining a young dewy look, those of us without said oils do not enjoy such benefits. What’s worse (and as mentioned above) with dryer skin comes weaker defenses to outside threats, including eczema. CBD cream works with CB2 receptors to help balance out oil production in a safe and natural way.
If you are tired of struggling to find an effective, natural, and affordable way to treat eczema, using organically-made CBD creams (or infusing CBD oil into your favorite skincare product) may be a fantastic first step. Never hesitate to reach out to us or your healthcare provider with other questions about using CBD as a skincare product.
