4 reasons to use CBD for your beard
At Hemp Hog, we understand that your beard is more than just face fuzz – it’s an important part of who you are, and deserves to be looked after. That’s why we combine hand-picked ingredients with organic, full spectrum CBD for a powerful range of products that care for both your skin and hair, leaving your man mane feeling strong and looking healthy.
We only use all-natural ingredients in our products, but the star of the show is undoubtedly our CBD oil. Grown by a cooperative of organic farmers in the South of Spain, we’re immensely proud of our oil, and believe it to be some of the best on the market.
But why use CBD oil, we hear you cry? A good question, and one that we often get asked. While all our ingredients are specially chosen for their properties, CBD carries a much bigger punch than the others. Here, we give you four reasons to start using CBD in your facial grooming regime.
Packed full of protein
All hair is partly made up of a protein called keratin, and your beard is no different. Each hair in your beard is packed full of the stuff, and failing to top up your protein levels can lead to weak, brittle hair.
CBD oil contains all 21 amino acids, which have been found to add to the protein levels of your hair and effectively strengthen it from the inside. What’s more, CBD is also packed full of Omegas 3, 6 and 9, which not only help to strengthen your hair but also promote blood circulation, keeping your skin hydrated and making for a healthier hair follicle.
Locks in moisture
Dry skin can still be the bane of any bearded bros life. Stop looking after your beard for just a few days and before you know it you’ve got itchy, flaky skin making you want to tear your beard clean off.
Luckily, CBD has also got you covered on this front. CBD oil contains Vitamins A, C and E, with Vitamin E proving particularly useful at treating dry skin. Because Vitamin E is a great moisturiser for your skin, using it in your grooming routine should leave it feeling soft and supple, allowing for a healthier beard in general.
The skin on your face gets some pretty rough treatment. It’s subject to constant washing, scratching and rubbing, and all these things combined can lead to inflammation.
To combat inflammation, your skin uses small glands on its surface called sebaceous glands, which secrete an oily or waxy matter, called sebum, which lubricates the hair and skin. CBD oil is very similar in composition to this sebum and fulfills the same role, seeping into your pores to keep skin moisturised and hydrated.
Both the sebaceous glands and hair follicles contain CB1 and CB2 receptors, just like many other organs in our body, which communicate with the nervous system to trigger diverse effects, such as reduction of inflammation. CBD oil can also act as a natural replacement for sebum, and can help prevent its overproduction which often leads to acne.
Light and non-greasy
Because the consistency of CBD oil is so similar to the naturally occurring sebum produced by your skin cells, you’ll barely even notice it’s there! CBD oil is super-absorbent and, unlike many beard oil ingredients, won’t leave your skin feeling oily and greasy afterward. Instead of sitting on top of your pores and hair follicles, CBD absorbs into them, helping to alleviate many of the symptoms which lead to dry and scratchy skin.
When it comes to looking after your man mane, we understand that you only want the very best, and we believe that Hemp CBD is one of the best ingredients on the market. But don’t just take our word for it – check out our Hemp Hog range and try some for yourself.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
