How Do CBD Face Masks Work?

You have probably seen sheet masks all over your Instagram feed! They are new to the skincare game but just as beneficial as any regular face masks. Sheet masks work as an occlusive – meaning they create a physical barrier by sealing your skin with a mixture of nourishing ingredients. The physical “sheet” prevents the evaporation of beneficial ingredients, giving you a complete, concentrated rejuvenation. All the good stuff goes in and stays there! 

A sheet mask is made of fiber cotton, cellulose, or coconut pulp with holes. These face masks are packed with a cocktail of hydrating ingredients and will usually be dripping straight out of the bag. Place it on your face by lining the holes with your eyes, nose, and mouth. Next, snap a picture. 

A sheet mask will infuse your skin with nourishing ingredients, giving you more hydrated and luminous skin in 15 minutes. Sheet masks allow your skin to take a break and soak up the good stuff, giving you an extra boost of what you need the most.  When choosing what sheet mask you should add to your medicine cabinet, there is a myriad of options. Keep on reading to learn why we recommend a CBD mask to revive your skin.

CBD For Skincare

What does CBD do in skincare? Well, it has the potential to do a lot! CBD (or cannabidiol) is one of about 1000 cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. CBD interacts with your endocannabinoid system, also known as the ECS, which affects most bodily functions, including appetite, mood, and sleep. CBD interacts with your ECS receptors – we have receptors in all layers of our skin! CBD for your face can help balance your skin, giving you what you need by regulating your body signals. 

A CBD-infused face mask can rescue your skin from your worst beauty nightmares. People have noticed CBD for its powerful antioxidant, call regenerative and anti-inflammatory agent.  The American Academy of Dermatology Association reported that small studies show promise in CBD’s skincare benefits. 

One of CBD’s spotlight benefits is its anti-inflammatory properties. Inflammation can lead to your worst break-out and even show signs of again. CBD has been used to support a healthy inflammatory response! 

CBD is also super moisturizing. However, the more the merrier doesn’t apply to CBD; when used in excessive amounts, CBD can actually make your skin drier. Our Radiance Sheet Mask contains a massive hydration punch from ingredients like snow mushroom, aloe, and shea butter, so you don’t have to worry about overusing CBD.

Our Radiance Facial Sheet Mask hydrates your skin by hugging every contour of your face. Made with Biocellulose (the gold standard for sheet masks), this material clings to every part of your skin, delivering its nutrients effortlessly. This makes it a more effective method of delivery than other face mask material like cotton, helping you soak up more of the concoction!  

We infused this mask with 15 mg of full-spectrum hemp extract to calm and soothe nourishing skin. Nourishing through the refreshing hydration of snow mushroom, aloe, and shea butter, our face mask ingredients will leave your skin feeling soft and supple. Let us show you what these hydrating ingredients can do! 

Snow Mushroom

Snow mushroom extract has been a popular ingredient in skincare as it’s gelatinous structure and high amount of polysaccharides can give your skin a boost of hydration. This fungus works similarly to hyaluronic acid, pulling moisture into the skin. Snow mushroom particles are smaller than hyaluronic acid, so it penetrates the skin more easily! 

Aloe

If you’ve ever laid out in the sun for too long and forgotten sunscreen, you definitely know what Aloe vera is. Ouch! For burns, it creates a barrier, treating your skin with cooling and hydrating properties. Aloe vera is widely known for its soothing properties as it is rich in amino acids, polysaccharides, and phytosterols. Aloe is mostly used for soothing irritated and itchy skin. 

Shea Butter

Shea butter is at the top of the list when it comes to moisturizers. Shea butter is a plant lipid that comes from Africa shea tree nuts. Shea butter is rich in fatty acids, antioxidants, and vitamins. Shea butter is super hydrating and has been found to heal skin irritations. 

How To Use CBD Face Masks

Here is how to use a CBD face mask like a true skincare guru!

  1. Cleanse your skin! You want to remove all dirt and gunk, so you can soak in all the glory with clean skin. 
  2. When using a biocellulose mask, like Winged’s, don’t forget to peel the cotton sheets off each side of the mask! 
  3. Match up the holes in your eyes, nose, and mouth. Then, gently smooth the mask to the contours of your face. 
  4. You’ve got 15 minutes: make a cup of tea, paint your nails, or take a power nap!
  5. Throw out the mask and massage the remaining elixir into your skin until it is fully absorbed. 
  6. Continue your self-care routine! Repeat every week (or twice a week if you need it!)
