Whether you’re enjoying balmy weather this holiday season, or are bundling up and braving the cold, you’re likely in need of some hydration. Quenching your thirst with Sangria or Hot Chocolate is always recommended, but it’s important to remember not to neglect your parched skin. Dry skin can cause itching, peeling and overall discomfort. Just as you would reach for a glass of water if you were thirsty, our skin is begging us to reach for some sort of hydration when it’s feeling dry. We’ve curated Best CBD Lotions 2019 to guide you in choosing you the perfect product for the delicate needs of your skin.
What is a lotion anyway?
Technically speaking, a lotion is a lightweight topical solution made of droplets of oil suspended in water. It’s that simple. A lotion is a great option for the daily moisturizing of normal to dry skin. Since lotions feature a non-greasy formula, they’re perfect for the daytime as they don’t leave an uncomfortable residue on your skin and won’t transfer onto your clothing. Lotions, as opposed to creams, are also the better option for moisturizing in warmer weather for those same reasons.
Why use a CBD lotion?
While there is still a lot of research to be done, anecdotal evidence has shown that CBD can help reduce pain and inflammation. Adding CBD to a lotion means that you can apply these benefits to a localized area in order to target the specific spots that need a little extra TLC.
When CBD is applied topically, it has a bioavailability rate of up to 45%. This is pretty huge compared to other ingestion methods which have a rate of between 6-30%. Bioavailability refers to the amount your body can absorb so when you apply a CBD lotion that contains 40mg of CBD, your body is absorbing almost half of that CBD.
If you’re curious about CBD but hesitant to take capsules or use an oil, tincture, or edible, a CBD lotion could be the perfect thing for you. Using a lotion makes it easy to insert CBD into your daily beauty regimen or your post work-out, self-care routine. Curious about which one to choose? We’ve put a list together of the best CBD oils of 2019.
