CBD Face Masks: Five Questions to Ask Before You Buy

When it comes to our skin, it’s what’s on the inside that counts. You might already be familiar with CBD as a natural supplement for issues like anxiety and insomnia, but it’s also got major benefits for your beauty routine. 

From anti-aging to acne fighting, CBD aka cannabidiol is set to be the next holy grail skincare ingredient. And its most potent effects can be found in the ultimate spa-inspired self-care product: the CBD face mask. There are a dizzying array of masks to try, across a wide range of brands and price points. But, you should ask a few important questions before you buy.

1. What benefits am I looking for?

Before you try a CBD face mask, figure out what you actually want it to do for you. That means getting to know your basic skin type, ideally with help from a dermatologist. It also helps to zero in on specific skin problems you’re hoping to resolve. Maybe you want to reduce redness, need something anti-inflammatory, or are just seeking deep hydration. Early research shows CBD is a strong antioxidant that can help with all three.

2. What type of mask do I want?

Since CBD face masks have surged in popularity, you’ve got plenty to choose from: sheet masks, clay masks, gel masks, overnight masks, and more. You can also opt to target specific problem areas, like fine lines or undereye circles, using spot treatments and gel patches.

3. Does it really contain CBD?

Face masks are prized because they deliver a concentrated dose of ingredients, so make sure you know what you’re getting. Even if a product has CBD in its name (or cannabis, or a picture of a hemp leaf), it might not actually contain CBD. Check the ingredients list closely. Then note where CBD falls on it, versus other components: The higher up the ingredient on the list, the greater the amount in a product.

4. Is it high-quality?

After determining that a face mask actually contains CBD, you want to make sure that CBD is top-quality. When possible, look for companies that source their CBD oil from specific, traceable suppliers who use high-quality raw hemp. Brand transparency can also help you check whether a product is: fair trade, non-GMO, vegan, eco-friendly, gluten-free and cruelty-free.

5. What else is in it?

Even after you’ve done your research and want to give a CBD face mask a go, you still need to check the other active ingredients – especially if you have sensitive skin. Watch out for potential irritants, like any synthetic fragrances or heavy carrier oils.
