Stress can show itself in many ways, but one of the most unflattering is when it’s on your skin. That rash you might get before a big speech or that pimple that decided to show up right before the gala is not always mercury retrograde, it’s stress. In those moments of high stress, it doesn’t just cloud your mind, it can affect your skin, too. What can we do to keep the mind steady and the skin glowing? We’ll let you in on a not-so-best-kept secret—CBD.
CBD, or Cannabidiol, is probably something you saw in your friend’s bathroom cabinet but might have been too embarrassed to ask about (because then they would know you went snooping). There’s no reason to hide. CBD has become so common that even the Orange County Register includes the best place to buy CBD in their “Best of Orange County List” every year. Managing stress is just one of its useful talents and with summer just around the corner, keeping that skin on point for a beach day in San Clemente isn’t a bad idea. Here are some of our favorite products to keep your mind calm and your skin healthy:
CBD for Calming the Mind
So you’ve meditated, journaled, went for a run down your favorite trail, but your mind is still racing. Incorporating CBD into your everyday wellness routine can help mentally prepare you to face your day with more manageable stress levels. A tincture is an easy way to introduce CBD into your daily rhythm.
Both CBD and MCT oil can support a focused mind and give you the lift you need on days you’re running on empty.
CBD for Healthy Skin
Stress can start at the skin. If you’re a person with a skin condition like eczema or psoriasis, you might know this a little better than most. Keeping your skin happy and moisturized won’t just give you a glow on the outside, it can do wonders to glow your soul, too. When you’re not looking your best, you don’t feel your best. A CBD skin salve might just be the confidence booster you need.
If you spent a little too much time in the sun, you may have sensitive skin or extreme dryness, and the Made from Dirt Sunflower Salve can give you the moisture and relief you need. It also works as a great facial moisturizer for clear skin.
For more extreme skin irritations that don’t seem to go away, restore your skin with the Made from Dirt CBD Restore Salve. It harnesses the power of CBD, shea butter, vitamin E, and more to revive your skin to radiant glory.
Clearing your mind of clutter is easier said than done, but CBD is here to help. Sometimes we just need an extra push and CBD is a healthy way to get it. However your stress manifests, be it on the skin or in your mood, you’ll be better equipped to handle it with CBD. The next time you’re going for run at the San Clemente State Beach, don’t be shy (or ashamed) to stop by the Made from Dirt store on the way to pick up some CBD. Trust us—anyone you spill this secret to will say that they have long been on this train. Just try it. Your mind, and your skin, will thank you for it.
