Why Antioxidants Are Good for Skin

Blog | July 01, 2018

CBD Hemp Extract is known to be one of the most versatile, antioxidant-rich extracts in the world. So why should you care? Let’s talk about what antioxidants do and why they are crucial for your skincare.

First, let’s get technical: Free radicals are particles of charged oxygen that can be harmful when they essentially “grab” an extra electron from atoms in the skin. When this happens, the cells lose their ability to function normally, which can be seen as wrinkles, lines, dehydration and signs of aging. Free radicals are all around us at all times, as they are essentially just oxygen particles that have split to a single atom, and they are looking to “pair” with an electron on your skin.

This is where antioxidants come in. When we use skincare with antioxidants, we are essentially limiting the production of free radicals so that the skin can function at its best. Antioxidants are a natural source to prevent toxins from penetrating the dermal layer, calm inflammation and tighten and tone skin.

With 125 MG of CBD Hemp Extract in every jar, Hempathy Therapy Cream packs a punch of this powerful antioxidant. We suggest rubbing some on delicate areas like your neck, chest and hands to keep your skin healthy and prevent signs of ageing. BONUS: If used as a nightly ritual, Hempathy also helps prevent insomnia and can ease you into sleep by calming muscles, anxiety and tension.
