CBD and skin care. Everyone and their mother is talking about the two right now. And I get why because CBD mixed with your skincare routine will produce amazing results. The problem is that not all CBD is created equal and some brands are pushing products with absolutely no CBD in them.
You might be wondering why CBD is even mixed with skin care? You hear of it helping with muscle tension and taking the edge off, but your skin? Well, it helps that too. Every awful skin symptom I’ve had, I have been able to fix with DEFYNT, a CBD skin serum. Puffy eyes from stress or not enough sleep? DEFYNT has you covered. Red splotchy cheeks? DEFYNT has you covered yet again. Need something moisturizing? You can already guess my answer by now.
As a cannabis consumer who loves a good night of self-care with a face mask (and a bath, and a joint), I really wanted to combine CBD into my routine but wasn’t sure what products on the market to trust. So, I made my own using DEFYNT, and wow. It was completely worth the (little) effort of making my own face mask.
First I did some research on at home DIY masks and honestly got overwhelmed, thank you nerves and trying new things, so I settled on getting this premade kit to start. It came with three base options (rose, french green clay, and volcanic clay) as well as two essential oils (peppermint and lavender), and gave me the ability to test out what I liked before spending too much money on all things face masks. Truthfully, I can’t lie, this little kit was the perfect starting point. It made everything easy and even came with the cutest little storing containers.
Now to actually make the mask!
The kit makes making your own mask really simple and nearly mess-free (a wonderful bonus for any neat freaks out there). It’s three easy steps and then straight on to self-care time!
Add 2 scoops of clay powder to face mask base, mix until completely combined
Add 3-4 pumps of DEFYNT skin serum, stir
Optional: add a few drops of essential oil, mix until completely combined
Once your mask is made, apply an even layer to a clean, dry face. Let it sit for at least ten minutes or until it’s dry; this is the perfect time to light up a joint in case you were wondering… Rinse the mask off with warm water and pat dry! Hello, fresh face!
As for choosing which clay powder or essential oil, think about your skin and what it needs. If you have sensitive skin or dry skin, use rose powder! Oily or acne prone skin? Try out the french green clay mask. Still feeling unsure? The volcanic clay is a safe bet for anyone.
My personal favorites were a simple Rose Clay + CBD mask and the Volcanic Clay, CBD + lavender essential oil. I’ve been switching between the two, doing one face mask a week, and my skin has never been better. It’s radiant, more even toned, and moisturized. For the first time in my life, I don’t mind leaving the house without a full face of makeup.
Not really one to make your own face mask but still curious about adding CBD to your routine? Just grab some DEFYNT skin serum and apply it daily; either in the morning so that the serum can work its magic under your makeup or before bed to let it soak in overnight. And lastly, don’t be afraid to add it to any store-bought face mask; it will still work wonders. Using a sheet mask? Apply a thin layer of DEFYNT to your skin before putting the sheet on your face and you are all set.
Happy masking, my friends!
