How to Combine CBD Wellness with Skincare this Winter
by Laine Hammer |
From irritation and redness to cracks and dryness, cold weather can make our skin uncomfortable. But a skincare product infused with CBD, like Papa & Barkley’s Releaf Body Oil or Releaf Repair Cream, can make the cold weather months much easier to manage. Using a full spectrum CBD infused skin product combines the best aspects of wellness with the benefits of healthier and more vibrant skin.
CBD for Dry Winter SkinDuring the winter months, the air outside can turn cold and dry which makes the water in your skin evaporate much faster. This can leave your skin feeling dry, tight and possibly flaky.
Antioxidants for Aging SkinSoothing oils such as Jojoba, Vitamin E, Squalane, and Mango Seed and antioxidants like Tea Tree, Peppermint, and Lavender are not only add extra hydration moisture to your face and body throughout the winter, but can also help reduce skin conditions such as redness and keep problem skin at bay.
How CBD Works Topically
Each one of us has an Endocannabinoid system (ECS) with two primary receptors (CB1 & CB2) that help regulate and balance our bodies. CBD acts upon those receptors in the ECS to provide comfort for redness and skin conditions.
Our skincare line—the Releaf Body Lotion, Releaf Repair Cream, and Releaf Body Oil CBD—introduces CBD into your body topically. Topical CBD provides comfort from skin conditions and redness by letting the cannabinoid penetrate the skin and interact with our endocannabinoid receptors.
Results are typically felt within minutes, and can last anywhere from two to four hours. When applied topically, CBD does not reach the bloodstream, so comfort is localized where applied, without intoxication.

Papa & Barkley’s Releaf Body Lotion uses the same formula as our CBD lotion, plus the powerful effects of fresh-pressed THC-rich rosin and hydrating agents in Jojoba Oil, Shea Butter, and Mango Seed Oil. Enjoy the clean, citrusy scent and smooth application to help calm minor irritations and leave skin feeling flawless.
