USING CBD TO HELP TARGET ECZEMA & PSORIASIS
What's this all about CBD being linked psoriasis and eczema? Khepri Renewal customers are finding great success using cannabidiol in their regular routine to lessen their severity of eczema and psoriasis, if not rid of it completely. Let’s first go a little more in depth of what exactly these skin conditions are.
What is Eczema?
About 10 percent of Americans have some form of eczema, which can be referred to many skin conditions, all of which are characterized by dry and itchy skin. This is usually accompanied by a red rash commonly found on the face, inside the elbows, behind the knees, on hands and feet, especially in children. Scratching causes the skin to become raw, sensitive, and swollen.
Doctors believe eczema is caused by an overreaction of immune cells in the skin. Breakouts can happen in response to soap, pollen, and pet dander, an “unnecessary” immune response. There is no cure for eczema. Many people turn to steroids to control symptoms but they often have side effects and don’t work for everyone.
What is Psoriasis?
Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune disease which causes inflammation and skin cells to be produced too quickly. In simple terms, new skin cells reach the surface of the skin before they’re ready because they’re produced so rapidly. This creates a buildup of “immature” skin cells and causing inflammed patches that appear silver and scaly. It’s an itchy and painful condition with symptoms including redness, swelling, and discomfort.
How to find relief?
When customers are targeting these conditions one of the most common questions we receive is “should I ingest the oil or apply topically when trying to target a skin condition?”. The answer is both!
When experiencing an outbreak it can be quite painful. By applying CBD oil directly onto the skin, the CBD will act as an anti-inflammatory and temporary pain reliever. We suggest applying the broad spectrum 9mg hemp seed oil directly onto your skin or the Khepri Renewal Soothing Cream. Our soothing cream has been specifically formulated with additional ingredients to encourage hydration and anti-inflammation. Our broad spectrum 9+mg hemp extract is blended with hemp seed oil, which will also assist with the outbreaks. Why you ask? Hemp seeds contain minerals and vitamins and have tons of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids that are essential for cell production and healthy skin.
When we are ingesting CBD oil, on a regular basis, this is working with our endocannabinoid system and allowing our body to return to homeostatic balance, regulating our bodies vital systems (immune, muscular, nervous, etc) and keeping our bodies in harmony. CBD is an immunosuppressant. This means it can reduce an immune response, like inflammation causing less irritation and breakouts of psoriasis and eczema. Both applications will encourage healing. Think of targeting the root cause from the inside out.
