How CBD may benefit your skin

We highlight some of the potential skincare benefits of CBD. Learn more about our CBD Body Bliss treatment at our Greater Toronto Area day spas.

Cannabidiol, or CBD, has taken the beauty and wellness world by storm! In honour of National CBD Day on Aug. 8, we want to highlight some of its potential skincare benefits.

What are the benefits of CBD in spa treatments?

Derived from the cannabis plant but without the psychoactive effects of THC, CBD works to balance the endocannabinoids produced by our own bodies, which play a major role in regulating our mood, pain, sleep and more.

When it comes to skin health, CBD boasts a number of properties that research is suggesting are beneficial:

Anti-inflammatory properties. Many skin issues, including acne, are inflammatory in nature. CBD has been shown to help reduce inflammation, redness and irritation, leading to a more balanced complexion.

Essential fatty acids. Say buh-bye to dryness! CBD may help maintain healthy skin by nourishing, hydrating and locking in moisture, leaving you with softer, more supple skin.

Antioxidants. CBD is a potent antioxidant, which can protect the skin from stressors like pollution and UV rays, preventing damage and helping it appear more youthful.

Soothing properties. CBD can calm the redness, swelling and blemishes that come with acne breakouts. It’s also a great option for people with sensitive skin because of its gentle, calming nature.

Indulge in a CBD body treatment at our day spas

Our CBD Body Bliss treatment is indeed blissful!

(Note: Since they do not contain THC—the main ingredient in marijuana—the WELL CBD products used in the treatment will not make you feel high!)

CBD Body Bliss begins with a full-body exfoliation to gently scrub away dead skin cells and impurities. You’ll feel like a new person!

After you take a relaxing shower in our treatment room, we will apply WELL’s Face and Body Mask to your upper back and décolleté. Enjoy a sense of tranquility while the mask works its magic on your skin.

You’ll then enjoy a soothing massage—using nourishing WELL Body Cream and Body Oil—finished with the Rosewater Hydrating Mist to tackle tired skin.

Take 20 per cent off CBD Body Bliss throughout August! Cannot be combined with any other offer.

Love the products as much as we do? The WELL Body Cream, WELL Body Polish, and WELL Rosewater Hydrating Mist used in the treatment are available for purchase in our retail boutiques to help extend the benefits of the service at home.

Important note: Unfortunately, not everyone can experience the CBD Body Bliss treatment. Please refer to our spa menu for more information on contraindications. We recommend pregnant women consult with their health-care providers before receiving this treatment.

As you can see, CBD can be used to treat a variety of skin concerns. While research on CBD is ongoing, we look forward to continuing to incorporate this powerhouse ingredient into our treatment menu.
