Start prepping for the changing weather now
In the summer, it’s easy to get by without a thorough skincare routine, as heat and humidity doesn’t usually lead to dry, flaky skin. But once the leaves start falling off the trees, it’s an opportune time to start cleansing, moisturizing and actually caring about what goes on your face. If you’ve only ever used soap and deodorant, you’re probably not open to the idea of layering oils and slathering a mask on. Luckily, the Observer talked to the professionals about simple products that will make this skincare transition much easier.
One way to start a skincare regimen, especially for those who are product naysayers, is with CBD For Life‘s simple face and body washes. Their formulas are said to reduce pain, inflammation and stress, all while fighting aging, because they’re infused with CBD, an ingredient found in industrial hemp. These products don’t use any perfume agents, so you won’t smell like a forest, a spa or a joint after using them.
If you’re having skin problems, and they’re exacerbated by changing temperatures, the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD can help. “The anti-bacterial properties of CBD help clean clogged pores and reduce the occurrence of blackheads,” Julie Winter, COO of CBD For Life, told the Observer. For men who don’t exactly exfoliate regularly or book monthly facials, blackheads can be a major problem, one that appears quite clearly in the subway’s fluorescent lighting. “Our cleanser also contains willow bark which contains salicylic acid, a natural exfoliant that sheds dead skin cells and stimulates new cell formation,” Winter said. She recommends finishing off your cleansing with a thick face cream, for an added touch of hydration.
