They say green is the new black. Who are they? They are the people who say adding CBD to your beauty routine will keep you looking young and radiant.
Many people consider their beauty routine as essential to de-stressing.
If you spend any time out in the world, you’ve probably noticed beauty products infused with CBD hemp oil. You can find anything from lotions to shampoos to mascaras.
Many of the products we use regularly are harsh on our bodies. Are you ready to ditch these harmful products for a more natural solution?
Here’s how you can start adding some CBD beauty products into your routine and reaping the beautiful benefits of hemp.
1. Introduce Products Slowly
Most people’s bodies tolerate CBD fairly well. That doesn’t mean you should throw away every product in your arsenal and replace it with a CBD counterpart.
Everyone’s anatomy and physiology are a little bit different.
You should start with a few simple products to see how your body responds. You might try a CBD oil-infused lotion on your hands. If you notice a negative reaction, stop using immediately.
If it seems to work for you, you might start using it on your arms.
You’ll start to get adventurous after a while. Humans are naturally curious. This is when you can start getting into the fun stuff.
2. Search for Quality CBD Beauty Products
If you’re an aspiring beauty guru, you know not all beauty products are created equal. You’ve probably tried many different products and formed opinions of each.
CBD oils are the same way. Cannabis products lie in a legal gray area. This makes regulating the market a difficult prospect.
With little government oversight, some manufacturers and retailers can’t be trusted. You need to be wary of these snake oil salesmen.
You only want the best products to go on your skin.
The quality of the CBD hemp oil will come from how it’s made. There are different ways to make CBD oil. Each has its own pros and cons.

3. Can’t Get High
This isn’t a tip so much as something you should know. Many people are afraid to try CBD products in fear of getting high.
THC, the compound responsible for the psychoactive high, isn’t the only compound found in the marijuana plant. Other cannabinoids, such as cannabidiol (CBD), have their own effects and benefits.
CBD oils typically have little to no THC. The THC content will depend on the overall purpose of the product.
Most beauty products should have no THC in them.
4. You’re Not in Kansas Anymore
When you first make the switch to CBD beauty products, you may find yourself a bit lost. The brands you once knew and trusted will no longer be an option.
Think of this as an exciting new adventure.
You have a whole new world of products to choose from. You’ll have to experiment with new brands.
The takeaway, though, is you’ll have to do your own research. You’ll probably have to test the products out on yourself to find the best ones.
This is why it’s important to introduce the products slowly and carefully. You’ll be able to figure out which products are working for you and which aren’t.
If you encounter any issues, you can better identify where the problems are coming from.
5. Look for Samples
Shop around and see if you can get samples. This will keep you from buying loads of products you may never use more than once.
6. Keep a Beauty Journal
Many people find writing things down is a useful activity.
If you’re trying out new products, keep a journal. This may seem a bit formal, but it can really help you determine which products are best.
You don’t have to write down crazy descriptions. Keep a list of simple observations Think of questions such as the following:
- What’s my skin type?
- What do I want out of my beauty routine?
- Have I tried CBD products before?
- Where did I get my products?
- Where are the products going?
- Do I get the results I expect? Do the products live up to their promise?
You’d be doing some important work for yourself here. Many brands offering CBD beauty products are new and have a limited reputation.
If you plan to leave reviews or start a company of your own, you’ll have a better understanding of expectations and results.
7. Make Decisions
The importance of establishing a beauty routine is sticking to it. When you’re trying new products, you might bounce around a bit.
When your trial period is over, you should choose a few products you’ll use regularly. If you don’t stick to the routine, you’ll never know if your routine is actually working for you.
I believe you can have too many beauty products. I may be alone in this, but sometimes less is more.
Get Started on a New Beauty Routine
I get it, new things are nothing short of terrifying. However, CBD beauty products may be the answer you seek.
Many claim the products are great for acne and reviving skin elasticity. Don’t take my word for it, though. CBD is safe for most people, so why not try it out yourself?
