CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is the second most prevalent of the active ingredients of cannabis (marijuana). Its use in beauty products has nothing new as it is supposed to bring benefits such as easing aches, soothing stress and prolonging your skin’s health.
According to beauty retailer Cult Beauty : « CBD is ideal for sensitive or irritated skin and for calming chronic skin conditions such as eczema, as well as for balancing oily, congested complexions. CBD is highly ‘sebostatic’, meaning that is helps to regulate skin’s sebum synthesis which leads to fewer pimples, spots and blackheads. »
Now any major beauty brand has a product or a line using the once illegal ingredient and if you can find very affordable CBD oils, creams and serums, we see an increasing number of high-end CBD products appearing. Here are five luxury CBD serums on the market :
The serum is formulated with CBD crystals instead of oil, as it is more highly concentrated and potent. The crystals also have an anti-inflammatory effect, working to reduce any irritation or puffiness.
The Gold Skin Serum is a blend of over 20 plant oils including CBD and other oils like blue tansy, frankincense, sandalwood, and rose oil to name a few. It claims to increases skin’s elasticity, but it also speeds up cell renewal and is a skin balancer for any skin type.
This serum helps speed up recovery and enhance results after intensive treatments. It’s sourced from cannabis directly from farms that employ sustainable farming practices, allowing them to deliver a 100 percent water-free, food-grade formula tested for purity and potency.
This small-batch super blend packs hundreds of phytonutrients, antioxidants, and fatty acids in a silky-rich formula that wants to be uncompromising on luxury and performance.
The Tissue Repair Serum claims to rebuild cells and gives a nourished and glowing skin. CBD oil is used here to help reduce redness, rebuild healthy skin cells and tissue fibers, as well as hydrate the skin. This serum also contain ingredients such as Aloe Vera Juice, Vitamin C, Vitamin B3 and Hyaluronic Acid to plump, and nourish the skin.
If VR is most of the time associated with video gaming, a new use of it is made in the performing art world. Creative Studios are now offering experiences combining theater and virtual reality. They adapt the use of VR headsets to immersive experiences with real life actors.
