It’s thought that each year 900 million lipsticks are sold in the world. Whether you’re a demure lipstick wearer or you rock bold red lips, every woman has a go-to lipstick or lipgloss somewhere in their makeup bag.
There’s nothing worse than applying lipstick to dry chapped lips or at the end of the day your lips peeling from a matte lipstick. It's a makeup faux pas, but it happens so often. The key is prepping your lips and locking in that moisture.
We have seen CBD added to so many beauty products to help give your skin that healthy glow, so why not add it to your lip routine.
What is CBD?
CBD (cannabidiol) is a chemical compound found in the cannabis plant. There are more than 100 chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant (including tetrahydrocannabinol or THC) but CBD has become perhaps the most well known in just a short time.
In fact, the health, wellness and beauty industry has been overtaken by CBD’s popularity.
Whether it is for pain, anxiety or acne, CBD’s list of benefits appears to be never-ending. It is becoming more and more difficult to differentiate the truth from the overlandish marketing claims, but one thing experts agree on is the nourishing and inflammatory properties of CBD.
The Causes of Chapped and Dry Lips
Dry and chapped lips are usually caused by the following factors:
- Environmental factors – The harsh winter cold and the dry summer heat can have a major impact on your lips.
- UV Damage – this is also related to the above factor, in the summer people forget to protect their lips from the sun. It is important to protect your skin on the lips as it is thin and very delicate.
- Dehydration – This can happen to the best of us, not drinking enough water throughout the day can have a lasting effect on your lips. You can also see a notable difference in hydration following a night of excessive drinking, coffee and sugary drinks.
- Picking at and licking your lips – stop doing this immediately! It might be a habit you don’t realise you're doing or a nervous tick, but if your lips are dried and chapped avoid licking your lips and picking at the dry skin.
Benefits of CBD on Your Lips
CBD oil rich in vitamin E – These vitamins are essential for healthy lips. Vitamin E can help boost the circulation thus improving cell turn over. This will help to obtain soft and smooth lips.
CBD oil for pain and inflammation – Many have started using CBD as it can help to soothe pain and has anti-inflammatory properties. This can greatly benefit your lips if they’re extremely dry and chapped.
CBD antibacterial benefits – CBD oil contain antioxidants that help against free radicals. Free radicals can damage your skin cells, causing premature ageing and drying the skin out.
For these reasons, CBD lipstick or lip balm may be more effective than your usual lip balm. Standard beauty products are currently being replaced by CBD infused versions due to CBD acting a natural beneficial supplement to the skin.

By directly applying the CBD on your lips you can target the affected area. CBD can help nourish your lips.
