Summer vs. Your Skin
Summer may be a fun and carefree time of the year for you, but it’s not for your skin. Sun exposure and the problems that result from too much Summer sun are your skin’s biggest enemies. The harmful effects of exposure and sunburns can damage your skin in multiple ways beyond the pain of a sunburn. Even if you don’t get burned, the harmful effects of a whole season of being outdoors when the sun is most intense adds up for your skin, resulting in damage, dryness, and other possible problems.
If you stay indoors all summer, you will avoid the problems that come from sun exposure, but what’s the fun in that? With proper precautions, and armed with the right sun-skincare products, you can have all the fun in the sun you want. Quality sunscreen and a moisturizing skin lotion are no-brainers, but other cool summer products exist that you might not even know about – and they have CBD.
More on CBD sun-care products later– for now it’s important to understand how the season of family vacations, outdoor adventures, and relaxing by the pool can harm your skin. Prolonged exposure to the sun dries out your skin, depleting the natural oils and moisturizers that keep skin soft, strong, and healthy. Sunburns can occur in less than 15 minutes of direct exposure, not only depleting your skin’s moisture but actually damaging the skin tissue and increasing the risk of skin cancer.
Sun exposure also causes the skin to lose its elasticity, causing wrinkles that can worsen over years spent in the sun. The pain of a sunburn is usually the first lesson your skin learns about being careless in the summer sun, but other problems can occur during this most treacherous season for your skin.
The number one threat to your skin’s health is dryness. Summer heat and sun exposure quickly drains the moisture from your skin, leaving it rough, dry, and wrinkled. The natural oils and moisturizers that keep skin soft, strong, and healthy are depleted by the heat and UV rays. The more you are outside the worse the moisture loss becomes. Your face, arms, and legs bear brunt of Summer’s scorching attack, but any exposed skin is vulnerable. If you wear shorts or a swimsuit, you are even more exposed.
The number one threat of the summer is sunburn. One sunburn is painful, but multiple sunburns over a lifetime are especially dangerous to the health of your skin. Sunburns don’t just dry out the skin and accelerate the formation of wrinkles, they actually cause damage to the tissue itself – in the form of painful, red, first-degree burns. It doesn’t even need to be hot outside to suffer a bad sunburn. A day hiking in the cool mountains unprotected can result in sunburn, and it’s even possible to get a sunburn on a cloudy day. The true danger of sunburns is skin cancer, and the cumulative effects of repeated sunburns are one of the primary causes of skin cancer.
Wrinkles & Wear
The combination of summer sun plus dry heat causes long-term wear on your skin which can worsen wrinkles. Sunny days cause you to repeatedly squint in the bright sunlight, worsening eye wrinkles. Summer exposure to sun, heat, and dryness causes the skin to lose its elasticity, resulting in wrinkles that worsen over years spent outside. Since your face is always exposed, sun exposure is one of the main causes of face wrinkles
Face & Lips
While any part of your skin can suffer from sun exposure, the skin on your body, arms, and legs is thick and durable, and somewhat more resistant to the sun. The skin on your face and your lips however is the most sensitive and delicate skin on your body. This sensitive skin is the most easily damaged by sun exposure, and the fact that your face and skin are never covered by clothing makes them even more vulnerable to the dangerous summer sun.
Hemp, the Sun and Your Skin
A whole family of over-the-counter products exists to protect your skin from the sun and help to repair and soothe it if you get burned. But the sun care products you buy at the corner store are missing a specific ingredient that makes all the difference – Hemp.
The hemp species of the cannabis plant is the source of special plant-based botanical oils that form the base ingredient of hemp skin care products, hemp seed oil, and CBD oil. When the full hemp plant is used to create an oil that contains high concentrations of a specific compound called Cannabidiol, it’s called CBD oil – but it’s virtually identical to hemp seed oil, except for the addition of the CBD compound. Both hemp oil and CBD oil have found their way into many different kinds of skin-care products, including sun-care products like sunscreen, lip balms, and sunburn lotions.
Both hemp and CBD oil contain moisturizers, antioxidants, and other ingredients that protect the skin from the sun. Hemp and CBD oil restore missing moisture and helps hydrate your skin after exposure to the sun, plus infuse it with other ingredients to nourish and protect it from the sun. The inherent moisturizing properties of hemp and CBD oil help to soothe dry, sun-exposed skin and rejuvenate sun-damaged skin. Hemp oils also contain anti-inflammatory compounds which can help to soothe the pain of a sunburn.
CBD oil is prepared specifically to include Cannabidiol, but it contains all the same moisturizers and other skin-benefiting ingredients as regular hemp oil. CBD products designed specifically for summer skincare include moisturizing lotions, sunscreen, sunburn-soothing gels, and even lip balm. In these products, all traces of THC have been removed, so there is no way to get any psychoactive effect from using a hemp skincare product.
Understanding what your skin needs to be healthy is the key to knowing why hemp seed oil is such a beneficial skin supplement, and why it’s a great way to protect against sun exposure fight back against the damaging effects of Summer.
Your skin protects you by keeping harmful substances from entering your body. It acts as a barrier between your internal body and the outside world, but its other purpose is to keep moisture from leaving your body. Your skin mostly does a great job protecting you and keeping moisture in, but the sun and hot weather cause moisture loss to exceed the rate the body replenishes it, which is why the summer causes dry skin.
It’s especially important to replenish lost moisture during the summer. Moisture, in the form of water and oils, is the primary ingredient your skin needs to be healthy and protect you. The skin’s natural oils act as a barrier against the sun’s UV rays, but in the summer these rays are most intense and can dry out your skin and weaken its ability to protect you. Hemp-based oils are potent moisturizers that restore what the sun takes away.
Sun exposure can cause microscopic damage and inflammation to the skin in the form of dry or burned skin along with redness, pain, and irritation. This microscopic damage to the skin can accumulate and weaken the skin as it tries to repair itself. Inflammation is microscopic damage to the skin cells which causes them to swell and become painful. Hemp oil acts as an anti-inflammatory when mixed with other ingredients that may help soothe redness, swelling, and pain, and calm the skin’s response to sunburn or overexposure.
Rejuvenating Skin & Smoothing Wrinkles
Bright sunlight causes squinting and UV-rays dehydrate your skin, both of which can cause wrinkles on the face, especially around the eyes. Wrinkles are the result of skin losing its elasticity and being stretched in the same way over and over. Hemp seed oil contains skin-rejuvenating nutrients like vitamin E that restores strength and elasticity. This infusion of vitamins, antioxidants, amino acids, and other nutrients may help to slow the signs of aging and restore skin to a more youthful appearance.
Many essential ingredients your skin needs to protect itself and stay healthy in Summer, can be found in hemp-based oils. Hemp seed oil contains a unique mixture of plant-based compounds that are especially effective against the skin-damaging effects of hot weather and sun exposure. These ingredients combine to produce multiple therapeutic properties for your skin, infusing it with compounds that restore moisture, neutralizing summer’s main threats to your skin. Hemp seed oil may also protect against other summer weather dangers by soothing chapped skin and inflammation, replenishing vitamins, restoring elasticity, and rejuvenating the skin itself.
