HOW TO USE CBD BODY WASH

There are days when you feel sticky all day and instantly need to freshen up when you get home. You don't have time to wait for a shower, so body wash is convenient. If you are wondering how to use it, read on to find more information.

CBD body wash is easy to use. Lather yourself up in the shower and use your hands to massage the wash into your skin. This will help increase blood circulation and deliver the benefits of CBD oil directly to the muscles. You can add it to a bath, but this is a personal preference.

You can also apply it directly to specific areas that need extra help. For example, Arquion et al. (2015) discovered that if you have a sore or stiff neck, rub some on the area before bedtime and see how much better you feel in the morning.

CBD Body Wash is a great way to get your daily dose of CBD. Using it in the shower is easier than using any other liquid soap or body wash. Here are some tips for using body wash:

Tips for Using Body Wash

Selection

Body Wash that contains the ingredients

One should be keen and take enough time to buy any CBD product. The market has presented both original and counterfeit products of CBD, so it’s good to take caution. Keenly look at the ingredients and ensure they contain the stipulated amount of CBD and other skin vital ingredients. Hydrating ingredients such as coconut and argon should be well labeled in the product. Always avoid body wash that contains harmful chemicals, harsh chemicals, and additives. 

Choose a Desirable Scent

Several different scents include Lime & Mint, Citrus Splash, and Lavender Vanilla Orange Blossom. You can also find unscented options if you prefer a scentless product. Choosing a scent is also dependent on the various factors that the individual prefers.

Application

Wet Skin before Application

Jayasekara & Ratnayake (2019) established that CBD Body Wash should be applied after wetting your skin and before you begin washing with soap (or other products). This allows the body wash to absorb the skin more easily, which means you’ll get more benefits from each application.

Body Application

A small body is needed to clean the entire body, so squeeze out a dime-sized amount. If you use too much body wash at once, the skin may get irritated or turn dry.  Use the body wash in a warm shower or bath to thoroughly wet and clean your entire body.

Apply the body wash with a damp washcloth from head to toe. To assist clean your skin and eliminating dead skin cells, gently rub the body wash on your skin, making sure to cover all areas from head to toe. You can also use a loofah or pouf for extra exfoliation if desired.  Do not use abrasive scrubs, loofahs, or other exfoliating tools on sensitive areas like your face, genitals, or nipples; these areas are more likely to become irritated by harsh scrubbing than other parts of the body. Rinse off any remaining suds with warm water after washing, and pat yourself dry with a towel.

It's more difficult to clean a complete body with just hands, so don't use them to apply the body wash.

To prevent germs and bacteria from accumulating, rinse the washcloth frequently. Once a week, you can also replace the washcloth.

Avoid using a loofah when using body wash because it might harbor bacteria and germs. It can also make you more likely to get acne. [6]

Don’t Lather Up Too Much.

CBD body wash does not need to be lathered up excessively to work effectively on the skin. Todd et al. (2010) warned that too much lather could irritate because it will strip away too much moisture from the skin when rinsing off afterward. It’s best if you rinse off quickly after applying the product.

Rinse Yourself

After lathering yourself, you have to rinse, preferably with warm water. While rinsing, care should be taken not to remove all the CBD products that benefit the body.

Note

The best body washes for you will depend on your skin type and how often you shower. Sumit et al. (2012) stated that if you have dry skin, look for a body wash that contains ingredients such as aloe or Shea butter. This will help moisturize the skin without leaving it feeling greasy or sticky.

For sensitive skin, look for a body wash with ingredients like chamomile or calendula extract. These soothing ingredients will help soothe any irritation from shaving or other skin care products.

CBD (Cannabidiol) is one of over 80+ cannabinoids found in cannabis. CBD does not have the psychoactive effects or "high" feeling that THC makes people feel stoned. Devinsky et al. (2014) argued that it’d been known to treat medical conditions like pain, nausea, inflammation, mental disorders, and even seizures. CBD may also be derived from hemp, meaning the plants containing CBD are low in THC, so no telltale “high” is associated with taking or using these products.

Conclusion

While the basic concept is plain and simple, it's easy to get confused about how to use body wash. Although there are no strict rules on washing your body, how you do or don't go about it can affect your health, skin, and social life. When using body washes and when cleaning the body, do so gently. The body skin is considerably more delicate than the face, and different body areas need different amounts of care. For instance, the breasts and nipples are particularly sensitive—you shouldn't wash these areas as frequently as you would other parts of your body, and you need to be extra gentle when doing so.
