A few years ago, not many people knew about CBD or Cannabidiol, but now you can find it everywhere. In the beginning CBD oil was limited to medical use, but due to the various health and beauty related benefits, it has attracted many CBD enthusiasts to try it. This has helped the CBD health and beauty industry boom.
Has the UK Spa industry joined this CBD revolution?
There are a few spas in the UK offering a range of treatments using CBD infused products. These relaxing experiences include CBD-infused baths, tea, chocolates, and foot massages, all designed to relax the body and boost wellness.
CBD is one of the active strains of the Cannabis Sativa plant. When mixed CBD isolate with a carrier oil like olive, coconut, or hemp you get the CBD oil. Due to the low concentration of the THC, it doesn’t have a psychotic effect.
What are the benefits of CBD oil for skin?
CBD oil offers major benefits due to its anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-anxiety properties. CBD infused products used in spas are often credited with making clients more relaxed and calmed down. Due to its effects on skins when applied topically, it makes sense to combine the natural CBD with an indulgent spa treatment.
CBD oil consists of essential fatty acids and can easily penetrate our skin making it more hydrated and moisturized. CBD oil is rich in vitamins A, C, E, terpenes, and other active ingredients of Sativa.
Vitamin A keeps the skin tight and improves the stimulation to generate new tissues whereas vitamin C acts as a natural antioxidant to neutralize the free radicals. It also helps your skin to repair damaged tissues.
Vitamin E when applying directly onto the skin, increases nutrient levels and removes sun damage. CBD oil is also used as an anti-aging solution to treat fine lines, wrinkles, and dry skin.
CBD Spa Treatments
CBD has taken the beauty world by storm. Especially, after the CBD revolution, spas have introduced CBD treatments. Spas use CBD products with the other treatments they are already offering such as hot stones massage, deep tissue massage, or signature facials. It allows for creating a rejuvenating and relaxing experience for their clients.
