Summer is here and we all love the sunshine, but your skin may be feeling the pain. Super sunny days and outdoor activities mean UV rays, sunburn, increased oil production and pore size, and chlorine from long days at the pool.
If your skin is crying out for help to get through the summer, incorporate some cannabis and self care into your routine. Cannabis has antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties to help fend off wrinkles, and its fatty acids can help with moisture control and aid in preventing sun damage.
There are tons of skincare products infused with cannabis on the market today, making it easier than ever to enjoy a spa day at home.
The next time you wake up on a Sunday morning, after a weekend of brunch and sitting by the pool, try these products to bring your skin back to life.
Cannabis Infused Bath
All good spa days start with a soak. So start your cannabis infused spa day with a nice relaxing bath. You can buy cannabis infused bath bombs or bath salts from your local dispensary, or order Hemp CBD based versions on the internet.
Bath salts, in particular, harness the power of Epsom Salts. If you ever played sports in school, you are sure to have heard of Epsom Salt. Epsom Salt is made from two important minerals: Magnesium and Sulphate. When stressed, the body is drained of its natural magnesium. Soaking in Epsom Salt can help restore your body to a normal level, releasing the feel-good chemical serotonin.
Combine this with the antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and stress relieving properties of cannabis, and you’ve got yourself an awesome bathtub experience happening right in your own home.
Try Dixie Elixirs’ Relaxing Cannabis Bath Soak or Mary Jane’s Medicinals’ Heavenly Hash Bath if you are in Colorado, or Whoopi & Maya’s Soak if you are in California. No access to either of these brands?
Don’t have a bathtub? Use these products for a simple foot soak using any plastic container large enough.
