The end of summer is always a bit of a bummer. With fall comes the rush of the back to (virtual) school season, upcoming family holidays to think about, and of course, cooler weather.
As the weather turns, you’ll need more layers and will have to put the sandals and swimsuits away. But one of the biggest drawbacks of the cooler temps might be for your skin. As the weather gets cooler, your skin may feel less hydrated than it did all summer. Plus you may experience itchiness, breakouts, and even chapped lips.
Once the weather chills, CBD applied topically can help a lot with some of your skin’s top woes. Here’s why.
Hydrates your skin
Studies have found that topical CBD products are effective to hydrate the skin. That’s because of the infusion of oils and Vitamins A, C, and E that can help deeply moisturize and protect skin. It’s also thanks to the antioxidant-rich properties of CBD. Antioxidants are important for dehydrated skin because they can help protect against free-radical damage which can lead to skin looking more dehydrated and with more fine lines and wrinkles.
Look for a product that contains pure CBD oil plus other oils like grapeseed, coconut, jojoba, marula, or oregano oil for best results.
If you suffer from chapped lipped, look for a CBD-infused lip balm which can help your lips stay hydrated, too.
Soothes and calms
Have you ever found yourself with more red spots or breakouts as soon as the weather starts to turn? CBD skincare products can help soothe your skin throughout the fall and winter. Studies show that CBD can help regulate and stabilize skin function. It’s also anti-inflammatory. That means it may help reduce acne and redness so you could have clearer, calmer skin this season. Plus, it may inhibit oil production so you breakout less over time.

If you suffer from a skin condition like eczema or atopic dermatitis that only gets worse or itchier as the season’s change, you aren’t alone. CBD is also effective to help with common skin conditions because of it’s anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties.
Note that if you also take medications for a skin condition like eczema, always confirm with your dermatologist that it’s safe for you to add CBD skincare to your daily routine before starting.
