From mascara to body lotion, CBD products are becoming wildly popular among estheticians, makeup artists, health gurus, and skincare specialists. Millennium’s soothing CBD pedicure is our newest listing on our service menu, so here’s an overview of everything you should know before you book your CBD pedi!
How Does CBD Work in a Pedicure?
Though an unlikely combination, infusing a pedicure with CBD is like pairing sea salt with chocolate: not just the duo we want, but the duo we need.
According to Allure magazine, our bodies already make our own endocannabinoid: a cannabis-like chemical called anandamide (some refer to it as the “bliss molecule”). When we introduce CBD to the mix, it elevates our levels of anandamide, releasing an anti-inflammatory and analgesic (pain killing) response.
Lathering CBD on the skin will target the contacted regions only, concentrating its pain- and stress-relieving properties on that area, hence its mass popularity among body lotions, face creams, and serums.
Benefits of CBD
Think of CBD as a vitamin. According to Claudia Mata, cofounder of skincare line Vertly, “It’s got anti-inflammation properties, vitamins A, D, and E, and essential fatty acids.” The benefits reaped from these properties are practically endless, but here are a few of our favorites:
- Anti-Inflammatory. According to recent studies, evidence is now starting to show CBD’s ability to combat dry skin, psoriasis and eczema.
- Analgesic. CBD is able to reduce pain and swelling in aching joints or sore muscles, making it perfect for massages or usage before or after a workout.
- Moisturizing and Nourishing. CBD in oils and lotions is known to help stop peeling skin, eliminate rough patches, and help heal cuts or cracks.
These benefits, among many others, make CBD the perfect addition to your beauty regimen.
