Everybody’s skin is different, and some people have naturally dry skin to begin with. Whereas, others have naturally moisturized skin despite the weather. However, most of us have experienced dry, chapped, and/or irritated skin at some point of our lives. For some people, their lips dry out the most and the fastest, especially if the external environment is cold and dry. However, there are numerous natural remedies for treating dry skin like chapped and irritated lips.
According to different research findings and medical studies, it has been discovered CBD contains a wide variety of benefits. One major benefit that people can take advantage of regarding dry, chapped lips includes CBD’s ability to moisturize and regenerate the skin. Overall, CBD can help revitalize the body’s skin including its lips when dryness, flakiness, and roughness occurs.
According to the Journal of Dermatological Science, it has been found that CBD contains anti-inflammatory properties, and this cannabinoid can inhibit keratinocyte proliferation. In other words, CBD can prevent the accumulation of dead skin cells in addition to treating psoriasis symptoms like dry skin, itchiness, redness, and swelling. In general, living in cold and dry environments can result in people experiencing a lack of moisture, especially within their lips.
So far though, CBD and hemp have shown to contain naturally moisturizing properties. These properties could be very useful when it comes to treating dried out and chapped lips. However, CBD also contains anti-bacterial and antibiotic properties, which help keep the hands, lips, and skin healthy and protected. If you’re looking for a natural and beneficial CBD-infused lip scrub, read on to find out how to make one with minimal ingredients.
Once the cold and dry weather arrives, our lips are completely exposed. At this point, they can become easily chapped and rough. This can lead to bleeding and/or cracked open lips. When this happens, many lipsticks and chap sticks won’t do much to fix this problem. However, home-made CBD-infused lip scrubs can be utilized, which can provide your lips with the moisture they need. There are numerous lip scrub recipes that you can try, but most DIY lip scrubs only require a few ingredients. However, this article’s lip scrub recipe includes CBD as a special ingredient.
A few main ingredients that are used in DIY CBD-infused lip scrubs include salt, sugar, coffee grounds, coconut oil, shea butter, and essential oils. Even though salt and sugar are used in certain lip scrubs, these ingredients can sometimes irritate extremely dry and cracked lips. Therefore, if your lips are already in this state, consider replacing salt and sugar for other non-irritating ingredients like coffee grounds.
