...THAT ACNE IS THE MOST COMMON SKIN CONDITION IN HUMANS
CBD contains many compounds with oil-reducing, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial properties that may help improve acne.
A 2014 study explored the effects of CBD on human sebocytes. These are the cells that create sebum, which is a waxy, oily substance the skin produces. While sebum helps protect our skin, excessive sebum can also result in acne. The study indicates that CBD can prevent sebocytes from creating too much sebum.
A 2016 review notes the potential antibacterial and antifungal properties of the cannabis plant. That could help prevent acne due to infections on the skin.
A 2019 study suggests that CBD may be beneficial for treating the appearance of acne scars. Yay to that!
The Glow Balm was featured VOGUE Scandinavia's "7 products Vogue Scandinavia's beauty editor is obsessed with this week".
"I’m not kidding that CBD is probably one ingredient that has tripled its presence in my beauty routine over the past months, and to be honest, I’m not mad about it. My latest discovery in this realm of natural skincare comes from Swedish brand Luceo and their Glow Balm. Maybe it’s the Latino in me, but I love a good multipurpose balm. Dry skin? Balm. Flaky texture? Balm. Irritated skin? Balm. Chapped lips? Balm.
Luceo’s 2% CBD formula is designed to hydrate while soothing, which is what makes the product such an all-star performer. With a herby scent, the fully vegan balm melts into the skin, allowing for seamless hydration and nourishment of the skin." - Beauty Editor Esteban G Villanueva
LUCEO In the news
We are featured in a super interesting article about CBD in VOGUE Scandinavia (Feb-March Issue 2022).
"Unraveling the stigma around 'Cannabeauty.' 'Cannabeauty' is trending like never before and CBD are the three letters on everyone's lips... But the question is if Scandinavia is onboard or if a sober society is putting a stop to this new fashion. People have been using cannabis for medicine, rituals and for recreational purposes for thousands of years. Nowadays, the cannabis substance CBD is basically everywhere. We find it in candy, cocktails, clothing and in celebrities' backyards (throwback to 2019 when Kim Kardashian threw a CBD-themed baby shower for her fourth child). And now a new train parted the pot station. I am obviously talking about the hyped trend CBD beauty."
