How to take care of your skin in summer with CBD: Tips for radiant, healthy skin

Summer is a time of year that can really age the skin if we neglect it. Discover the best skin care routine (especially in summer) and how CBD cosmetics will help keep your skin healthy and radiant all year round.

Importance of skin care, especially in summer

We love the longer days, starry skies, enjoying the beach, sunsets with friends, cherries and all the good things that summer brings. But on the other hand, summer brings together several factors that can prematurely age the skin: hours outdoors in the intense sun, changes in schedule and rhythms, few hours of sleep, chlorine, salt water, showering more often, sweating, heat, dehydration, and even air conditioning!

If we do not take care of our skin, these conditions favor skin dehydration, the appearance of spots, fine wrinkles, flaky skin, dryness and tightness, even burns, giving us an appearance that is not as youthful as we would like. Adopt a daily skin care routine to keep your skin well hydrated, protected and healthy for years to come.

How to take care of your skin in summer

Basic tips to pamper and care for your skin in summer:

Moisturize your skin in depth with hyaluronic acid

Serum cbd

Use a serum with hyaluronic acid and panthenol, two real allies to maintain intense hydration for long hours. Apply this deep moisturizing cocktail before your moisturizer with CBD for best results and a revitalizing effect.

Discover CBD for the skin

Incorporate CBD into your daily skin care routine. This unique cosmetic ingredient has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, soothing and regenerating properties. Restore skin’s natural health with the benefits of cannabidiol.

Apply facial cream daily

Especially in summer, nourish and moisturize your skin with a moisturizer rich in natural ingredients that do not leave a greasy finish or clog pores. If the heat intensifies, do not hesitate to apply it several times a day. Remember that air conditioning can also dry out your skin.

Opt for sulfate-free soaps and shampoos.

Sodium laureth sulfate (SLS) and other sulfates are very irritating to the skin. These sulfates, common in shampoos, bath gels and hand soaps, can damage your skin barrier with repeated use. Make a healthy switch to solid soap and see the difference in your skin.

Protect yourself from the sun

If you will be spending a lot of time outdoors, consider using hats, caps and parasols. Find a table in the shade whenever you can, and in case of prolonged direct sun exposure, make sure you have a mineral sunscreen on hand.

Pamper the skin of your body

Use a repairing body lotion with CBD after showering to keep skin soft, nourished and radiant. Complete it with a gentle massage of Body Oil.

Do not forget to hydrate your body from the inside

Be sure to drink enough water (or infusion with ice) and enjoy the fresh fruits that the season gives us: watermelon, melon, cherries… Hydrating your body from the inside will also be reflected on the outside, giving your skin a healthy appearance.

Moisturizing the skin in summer

Hydration is essential for the natural health and beauty of the skin. You should know that a whole series of chemical reactions take place in the skin that help it to be hydrated, nourished and well protected. For these processes to occur, the presence of water in the skin tissue is necessary.

Without moisture in the skin, the enzymes responsible for protecting the skin cannot act, and the skin barrier function is impaired. In addition, continuous external aggressions (sun, sweat, soaps, salt, chlorine…) aggravate the situation. Together, these factors mean that we need to give our skin extra hydration in summer to avoid dryness, tightness, flaking and the early appearance of signs of skin aging such as fine wrinkles and skin spots.

Hyaluronic acid: moisturizes, softens, soothes, calms and plumps the skin

Cosmetic experts have been researching ways to provide long-lasting skin hydration for decades. Among the most effective ingredients is hyaluronic acid (1-3), capable of retaining moisture for hours, improving skin hydration, softness and suppleness. In addition, it has soothing and volumizing properties, providing a healthier appearance and helping to prevent the appearance of wrinkles.

CBD: regenerates, protects and soothes the skin

Another exceptional ingredient for its properties for the skin is CBD or cannabidiol (4-6). It offers several benefits, the first of which is that it is the only cosmetic ingredient with effects on the endocannabinoid system of the skin. Helps balance the skin barrier, has antioxidant, sebum-regulating (for both dry and acneic skin), anti-inflammatory and soothing properties (ideal for after-sun).

Hydrate yourself from the inside

The best thing to do is to turn good habits into habits. If you feel like it, here are some very moisturizing and antioxidant foods that you can introduce in your daily life to take care of your skin:

  1. Fresh fruits, and if they have a lot of color, the better. Colors are antioxidants. The summer is full of these foods: apricots, cherries, watermelon, melon, peaches
  2. Water, cold infusions, including tea or coffee with ice.
  3. Beta-carotenes, very powerful antioxidants for the skin. They are found mainly in carrots and spinach.
  4. Anthocyanins, another type of very potent antioxidant present in blueberries. You can find them in the freezer section and prepare homemade sorbets.
  5. Lycopene, another powerful antioxidant, this time present in a fairly universal ingredient: tomato sauce. It serves perfectly well the packaged one, and cooking does not destroy it, but increases its bioavailability.

Night routine with CBD in summer

In summer, nighttime skin care is essential to apply products that promote skin repair and regeneration. We suggest using the CBD Serum with Hyaluronic Acid and the CBD Moisturizing Facial Cream. You can complement your nighttime routine with a few drops of CBD oil that will help you sleep better .

Use sulfate-free soaps

What you gain by moisturizing the skin with creams, you lose by using conventional soaps. And even more so in summer, when we can shower several times a day. Sulfates are the main ingredient of many “personal care” products. These are the famous “sodium lauryl sulfate” (SLS) and “sodium laureth sulfate” (SLES), which I’m sure you’ve read about in some shampoo or shower gel.

Its function is to form a high lather, with the ability to effectively wash away all dirt, including skin barrier protection, altering the pH of the skin and causing irritation and dryness.

One of the most noticeable differences when using solid soap is that, when rinsing, the sensation is less slippery, it almost feels rough. This is because the foam it produces is much gentler and more respectful of the skin. Once you dry off, you will notice that your skin is incredibly soft and moisturized. If you have dry skin, all the more reason to switch to solid soap.

In addition, this option is much more environmentally friendly and durable. If you are interested, we tell you more about the benefits of solid soap .

Protect yourself from the sun

Although we’ll leave it for last, the first step to take care of your skin in summer is to protect yourself from the sun. From Cannactiva we propose you our reversible cap and a fresh and summery cannabis outfit: shirt with hemp prints and matching boxer shorts. matching boxer shorts.

Enjoying the summer sun is great, but if you’re hiking in the high mountains, or spending the afternoon playing volleyball on the beach, you definitely need to wear sunscreen if you don’t want to end up with sunburned skin. If you are going to be outdoors all day, take a serum with hyaluronic acid in your backpack to apply it 2 or 3 times a day, or when you notice skin tightness.

The best type of sunscreen: mineral

We recommend that you use mineral and ecological sunscreen, which are the typical white sunscreens of all life. The active ingredients in mineral sunscreens are white powders (hence the color of the cream), which can be either zinc oxide or titanium dioxide. When these minerals are applied to the skin, they are not absorbed, but form a physical film that protects the skin from UVA and UVB rays. It is not like a moisturizer, which leaves the skin transparent when applied: with sunscreen, it has to be somewhat white. The whiter the skin is when you apply this sunscreen, the more protected it is.

This type of sunscreen is not absorbed, as the ingredients of chemical sunscreens are. Because they are not absorbed into the skin, these sunscreens are less irritating and a better choice for people with sensitive skin.

In addition, they are effective immediately after application, whereas chemical sunscreens often need time to absorb before they are effective.

Another advantage is that they are better for the environment, as some chemical sunscreens have been shown to damage marine life and corals.

In short…

We hope you have found this post interesting about something so important that is our skin, and that you have been able to remember or learn useful facts. Now that you know that your skin must always be hydrated, how to protect it, the factors that can damage it and the best type of sun protection, you are more prepared for the summer.
