Our skin is our barrier. It faces the elements for us, so we need to protect it from extreme temperatures, the sun, dry air, pollution, and more. Taking care of our skin is important for everyone. Not only is it crucial to take care of your skin when facing physical elements, but for many, it’s what makes us feel good about ourselves. We want you to be comfortable and confident, both inside and out, so you can be the best version of yourself. Your skincare routine doesn’t have to be complicated. Whether you’re into the 10-step regimen or prefer a simpler route, there’s something that works for every face and body. Seeing as the skin is our largest organ, it’s important to give it the love and care it deserves, and that’s why we created our skincare suite – a line of unique products formulated with the whole plant and with all skin types in mind.
How to Build a Skincare Routine
From your head to your toes, we’ve created three comforting cannabis wellness skincare products that will rejuvenate and repair while also soothing your mind and body. No matter what time of day you prefer to indulge in your skincare routine, here’s a step-by-step guide to treating your skin with the respect it deserves. Follow this simple guide to help you build your daily skincare regimen.
In the morning, use our Repair Cream & Body Lotion
For all you morning shower-ers out there, we recommend using Releaf Repair Cream and Releaf Body Lotion. Apply the Releaf Repair Cream and Releaf Body Lotion onto clean skin before applying any oil-based products. Some say they prefer putting their creamier products on when their skin is still damp because it absorbs more easily and really locks in hydration. But if that gives you pause, dry your newly clean skin and massage a nickel-sized amount to the places you need it most! The Releaf Repair Cream is specifically formulated to moisturize your face and neck, while our go-to spots for Releaf Body Lotion are our arms, legs, and hands.
We love our Releaf Body lotion because it’s more than just a moisturizer; our body lotion combines the powerful effects of fresh-pressed THC-rich rosin with the hydrating agents in jojoba oil, shea butter, and mango seed oil. Enjoy the clean, citrusy scent and smooth application to help calm minor irritation and leave skin feeling flawless.
If you prefer to shower in the evenings and keep your morning routine quick, we got you covered; our Releaf Repair Cream is a great morning moisturizer to apply after you brush your teeth and rinse your face.
By mid-day, treat yourself to a massage or post-workout muscle relief
If you need a few minutes to yourself throughout the day, our Releaf Body Oilis ideal for a self-massage! Or, if you just finished up a workout, it’s a great option for muscle recovery because it offers targeted topical relief. Apply it liberally to anywhere that feels sore to reduce muscle tension.
Before bed, complete your routine with CBD Repair Cream, Body Lotion, or Body Oil
The end of the day is where our products really shine. We return to our CBD Releaf Repair Cream! It was designed to hydrate and repair sensitive areas like your face and neck, and I’ve been loving the light, airy feeling both morning and night. After a thorough face-washing, I use a little bit of toner (Thayer’s is my favorite!), and then rub in a nickel-sized amount on my entire face and neck to ensure full coverage. (Note: Use Repair Cream after a serum, but before any face oils or acne products!) The citrusy scent is really comforting before bedtime, and it’s nice to know that the whole plant will work its magic on my skin overnight! After I apply the Repair Cream, I then use the Releaf Body Lotion all over my arms legs. Unfortunately, I have a condition (on just one of my arms!) where my skin is all bumpy (TMI?), so I’ve been using the body lotion every night after my shower to help reduce flair ups. Though I love the Releaf Body Oil, I prefer using it at least an hour before bed, so it has a chance to soak in before I get into bed. It soothes my sore muscles, and the peppermint creates a cooling sensation to help me drift off to sleep! –Laine
