CBD Comes To Hair And Beauty Treatments
Rich in antioxidants and essential nutrients it was only a matter of time before the unique therapeutic properties of CBD found their way into beauty treatments. CBD or cannabidiol, is renowned for its potent anti-inflammatory properties and works to balance the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). Now studies have shown that the ECS also plays a part in maintaining aspects of skin health which would make it an ideal ingredient for beauty products such as face creams, serums and body lotions.
New York dermatologist, Dr. Francesca Fusco found that CBD can even improve overall skin health. In her studies, Fusco has found that CBD is a source of rich fatty acids and contains other nutrients that are beneficial to the skin to retain moisture and keep skin youthful. And its ability to help improve the function of the circulatory system and help to regulate blood flow makes it an ideal addition to hair and body massage treatments.
Unfortunately for us, CBD treatments are not as easy to get as a mani or pedi which is why we were so excited when we heard that the Cowshed Spa, Hari’s Hairdressers and the Budock Vean Hotel & Spa have all recently introduced bespoke CBD infused treatments.
The Cowshed Spa’s CBD-infused body massage and facial
One of our favourite places to go for treatments, the Cowshed Spa is one of the the first places to offer dedicated CBD treatments. Using pure CBD oil which is odourless and colourless by Dutch CBD specialist MariPharm, their CBD facial is a 60 minute anti-inflammatory relaxing treatment using CBD-infused cream to calm irritated skin. The second treatment is a 60 minute CBD body massage, designed to destress and reduce muscle pain and discomfort using CBD essential oils. The oil is massaged directly into the affected areas using Thai compressors which help to relax the muscles.
We’ll be trying both treatments soon so look out for our upcoming review! In the meantime, if you want to experience them for yourself you can book directly with Cowshed Spa.
The Spirit of Hemp Hair Treatment at Hari’s Hairdressers
As CBD is an oil rich in therapeutic properties that have been used for centuries, top marks for Hari’s Hairdressers for seeing its potential as a hair treatment. Partnering with the CBD experts from ‘Spirit of Hemp’ Hari’s have developed a treatment that uses raw CBD and CBDA oil to give your hair, in the words of Hari’s, a ‘transforming treatment for mind, body, hair and scalp’.
Mindful of the fact that CBD has a long history of wellness, the founder of Hari’s said, “CBD has been used for centuries in eastern medicine and haircare producing incredible results, and I’m thrilled to now be able to share these amazing benefits with my clients who want to rebalance & reset.”
