Spa day: how to make a CBD face mask

Spa day: how to make a CBD face mask

Using a CBD face mask is another extremely popular craze in the CBD world. As people realise the many advantages of CBD for skin care, they want that same sense of wellness tailored for the more delicate and vulnerable skin of their faces.. 

The benefits of face masks are numerous, but the benefits of a CBD face mask are even greater. This article will outline the basics of CBD face masks, their benefits, a make-from-home recipe, and it will help you learn how to use CBD for acne, psoriasis, eczema, and other skin conditions. 

CBD face masks: what they are and how they work

CBD is making a big impression both in the medical community and the beauty industry. The skin health benefits of CBD makes it a brilliant ingredient in skin care products. Beauty products and spa treatments are embracing the cannabinoid to create CBD products that help both the health and appearance of skin. It is being added to CBD topicals like ointments, massage oils, salves, gels, and creams. And another rising popular skincare product is the CBD face mask. 

A CBD face mask is simply a face mask with the extra ingredient of CBD. This is a compound of the cannabis plant that has various health and wellness benefits. It does not have the same psychoactive properties as other cannabinoids (like THC), so it is a safe ingredient for people who want to embrace its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and pain relieving qualities without the sensation of being high. 

You apply a CBD face mask like any other topical—by applying externally to your skin. But a face mask is specifically for the softer, more sensitive skin of your face. For this reason, it requires more soothing ingredients and a gentle application. Once applied, you remove the face mask with water. It won’t be long before you’ll start seeing and enjoying the many benefits of a CBD face mask. 

Benefits of CBD for skin conditions 

A CBD face mask has all the same benefits as any other topical CBD product. CBD is highly beneficial for relieving the symptoms of various skin conditions. Whether it’s some patches of dry skin or a chronic condition like psoriasis, CBD can help. CBD is an anti-inflammatory—and since inflammation is the cause of many skin issues, this can be highly useful. CBD can help reduce swelling, along with the redness and itching that tend to come with it. CBD is also a pain reliever, which can ease the discomfort caused by harmful skin conditions. As an antioxidant, CBD can also help rejuvenate damaged skin cells and repair broken skin. Virtually any dryness or damage caused by a skin condition can be relieved by CBD topicals. 

The benefits of face masks include an overall fresh wellness to the skin on your face. If you add a CBD face mask to your regular beauty regime, you will see your face start to glow with health and wellness. A CBD face mask is made through a combination of oils and extracts that are also great for skin, so CBD complements these naturally soothing ingredients. 

CBD has also been shown to help with acne. Acne often affects the face, so a topical specifically designed for that more delicate skin can be greatly beneficial. Learning how to use CBD for acne can really transform your acne issues, help treat the condition, and boost your confidence. All the properties of CBD mean that those suffering from eczema, dry skin, psoriasis, and even acne, can find relief through a CBD face mask. But it is also a great product for anyone who wants healthier and more beautiful looking skin.

How to make CBD face masks

It is simple and easy to make your own CBD face mask at home. This homemade method can save you money, teach you a new skill, and become a great gift idea for friends and family. By knowing how to make a face mask for yourself, you can more easily enjoy its benefits on a regular basis. 


  • 4 drops of CBD oil
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoon of coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons of brown sugar


  1. Mix together the lemon, sugar, and coconut oil.
  2. Add the drops of CBD oil.
  3. Use a blender to mix together the ingredients.
  4. Remove any rough leftover sugar crystals.
  5. Apply the mixture to your face and exfoliate the skin gently using circular motions.
  6. Let it sit there for 5–10 minutes.
  7. Rinse your face with warm water.

This recipe is great because not only does it contain the beneficial qualities of CBD, but the other ingredients are brilliant for skin wellness, too. Coconut oil is a natural anti-inflammatory, so it works very well in combination with CBD to reduce swelling, pain, and redness in your skin. Lemon offers the advantages of citric acid, which dissolves dead skin cells and smooths rough, dry skin. And the brown sugar helps with the exfoliation of your skin and contains glycolic acid, which fights bacteria.

So all in all, you’re left with a perfect CBD face mask mixture to truly help revitalise and moisturize the skin on your face.
