(BPT) - The latest buzz in the beauty world is all about CBD. Have you heard of it? Short for cannabidiol, CBD is grabbing headlines every day. Long known to be a beneficial ingredient for health and wellness, now it’s coming to the beauty industry.
Why is it grabbing headlines? Because of its anti-inflammatory, soothing and anti-aging properties, which make the oil an ideal solution to transform your beauty routine, from hair products to lotions to facial oils. And if you’re thinking, wait, cannabis? That’s marijuana, right? Wrong. Though CBD is found in cannabis, it is legal, it won’t get you high, and you will pass your drug test with flying colors. That’s because it does not contain THC, which is the ingredient in cannabis that produces the “high” effect.
Still confused? Don’t worry! We sat down with Kevin Wachs, the CEO and co-founder of Earthly Body, to look at some of the beauty areas where CBD is having the biggest impact.
Wachs was one of the first to identify the crop’s potential benefits and has launched several hemp-based brands over his vast career. Most recently, debuting EMERA CBD Haircare, the first line of haircare products made with 100 percent Non-GMO CBD oil. The line complements Earthly Body’s skin care brand, CBD Daily, to ensure your beauty bases are covered from head to toe.
Super skin care
We already know that inflammation can spell serious skin woes, but what you might not know is that CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties can do wonders to help soothe low-level irritation. The oil moisturizes and soothes skin thanks to the high levels of Omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids it contains. These acids deliver important nutrients to the skin while protecting against environmental and other daily stressors.
Additionally, this primary phytocannabinoid found in the cannabis plant has been shown to be effective in providing pain relief in targeted areas when applied topically. Naturally integrating with the body’s endocannabinoid system, which helps regulate homeostasis within the body, the oil works to soothe sore muscles and aches.
Earthly Body’s Emera CBD Haircare line is the first professional haircare line infused with CBD. This, along with other oils, is loaded with essential fatty acids so it helps to keep hair well hdyrated. By working with the body’s endocannabinoid system, it also helps to regulate hair loss and control dry hair and scalp conditions. In doing so, it encourages hair growth and promotes overall healthy hair.
“CBD promotes healthy hair growth and good scalp health and protects your hair from daily environmental stresses because it is antioxidant rich,” says Wachs. “It also strengthens your hair and reduces breakage thanks to the high levels of amino acids, and offers color protection thanks to tyrosine, too.”
In addition, due to its anti-inflammatory properties, it works to calm and nourish beneath the surface by deeply penetrating and conditioning in conjunction with a blend of ingredients like lemon grass, chamomile and Japanese matcha green tea.

Time-Saving Tips to Get Up and Get Glowing
(Family Features) If you wish you had more time to get ready in the morning, you’re not alone. Fortunately, there are plenty of shortcuts you can take during your morning routine that can give you more time to sleep, eat or just make it to work on time without having to sacrifice looking anything but your best.
Leading beauty and lifestyle personality Laura Lee, who has more than 4 million followers across her social media platforms, provides these time-saving tips to improve your morning ritual. With Lee’s recommendations, you’ll be out the door and glowing faster than you think.
Get everything together the night before. Get yourself prepared for the day ahead by laying out everything you’ll need the night before. Picking out your clothing, laying out makeup, gathering your car keys and any other essentials, packing your lunch and charging your cellphone before you go to sleep can save you time when you get in a morning crunch.
Multitask in the shower. Turn the tedious, time-consuming tasks of applying sunless tanner and moisturizing into something quick, seamless and simple by incorporating it into your daily shower routine. The easiest way, according to Lee, is to use a product like Jergens Natural Glow Wet Skin Moisturizer, which is available in in fair-to-medium and medium-to-tan shades and made to be applied to wet skin right after you shower to lock in moisture and gradually build natural-looking color.
“As someone who is constantly on social media, one of the first questions I always get asked is ‘How do I get my signature glow?’” Lee said. “A great look doesn’t end with your makeup, it goes beyond highlighting and contouring the face. To get a head-to-toe flawless look, I use Jergens Natural Glow Wet Skin Moisturizer. It’s so easy to use and saves me a ton of time.”
After showering, simply turn off the water and apply the moisturizer to wet skin then towel off as usual. Natural-looking color gradually develops in 3-5 days.
Release clothing wrinkles. When you’re crunched for time in the morning, one of the last things you want to do is get out the iron and ironing board. Instead, hang your clothes near the shower to allow the steam to release some of the wrinkles. If that doesn’t do the trick, Lee suggests putting your outfit in the dryer with a damp cloth and running it for a few minutes.
