CBD Face Masks: Everything You Need to Know
Face masks are an excellent way to hydrate your face while providing it with nutrients that revitalize and nourish healthy skin cells. However, many mass-manufactured face masks contain artificial ingredients. These additives can cause an array of issues that might dry out your skin or cause irritation.
Offset the disruption caused by these chemicals by promoting balance throughout the skin endocannabinoid system with CBD oil. CBD face masks are a growing beauty trend that promotes natural wellness. Hemp extract is rich in proteins and amino acids that lock in moisture and promote vitality.
Many CBD brands are coming out with their own line of CBD face masks. Plus, you can make some yourself. Here’s how to add CBD oil to your beauty routine so that your face maintains its youthful glow!
Why Use CBD Face Masks?
Our faces are the first thing that everybody sees. It’s important to many of us that our facial skin remains bright, firm, and healthy.
Face masks are a refreshing way to tend to our faces. The act alone of massaging the face mask into your skin feels like a luxurious form of self-care.
Our skin is also porous. Whatever nutrients are within the face mask will permeate into the skin barrier. They will interact with cells that influence our internal communication network, known as the endocannabinoid system.
The endocannabinoid system’s goal is to promote homeostasis (balance). Things like stress, environmental toxins, or germs can disrupt this balance, resulting in tired skin.
Our endocannabinoid system is regulated by cannabinoid receptors. There are many cannabinoid receptors present throughout the skin. They can prompt reactions that promote an unhealthy skin appearance.
Phytocannabinoids in CBD oil help calm these receptors. Adding CBD oil to your face mask can amplify the relaxation and wellness benefits of your beauty routine.

Buy CBD Face Masks
With increased interest in CBD topicals, the beauty market has seen an influx of CBD face masks. Here are some of the most popular CBD face mask brands out there.
CBD Sheet Masks
Sheet masks are probably the most common types of face masks. As the name implies, you cover your face with a sheet, with one side that’s covered in skin-nourishing nutrients. Then, you peel the sheet off after a certain amount of time.
The best CBD sheet masks include:
Most skin types can use these masks and experience the benefits. The length of time spent wearing the mask is dependent on the product. Be sure to follow each mask’s instructions carefully.
CBD Cream Face Masks
Cream masks are excellent for those with normal to dry skin. These velvety facial moisturizers are rich in rejuvenating oils that enrich skin cells. They will help prevent itchiness and flaking.
Popular CBD cream face mask brands include:
Most of these masks require wearing them overnight. Wash your face in the morning to remove.
CBD Clay Face Masks
Clay naturally detoxifies the skin. That makes CBD clay face masks ideal for those with normal to oily skin. The clay helps neutralize overactive sebum glands.
Top CBD clay face masks include:
- Fifth & Root Moonlight Cooling Glow CBD Mask
- Lab to Beauty: The Green Cure Mask
- Hugs CBD Chamomile Clay Mask
Don’t overuse clay masks because they can dry out your skin. Limit their usage to once or twice per week.
CBD Exfoliating Face Masks
Exfoliating masks are suitable for most skin types. They help clear the pores of debris, excess oil, and other contaminants. Plus, exfoliants help modulate new cell growth.
Top CBD exfoliating face masks include:
- Shea Brand Electric Daisy Enzyme Face Mask
- Hora Overnight Exfoliating Mask
- Code of Harmony Acidelic Microsplash CBD Exfoliant
If you have sensitive skin, you might find these types of face masks too abrasive. Start with a small application in a less visible area to see how your skin responds before applying to your face.
CBD Gel Face Masks
Gel masks are ideal for sensitive and dry skin types. They tend to be fortified with cooling agents, such as aloe and algae. These ingredients help soothe irritated skin.
Popular CBD gel face mask manufacturers include:
These face masks can probably be used more liberally than other types. Just make sure that astringent-based ingredients aren’t primary ingredients in the formula. Otherwise, you might dry your skin out.
What to Look for in a CBD Face Mask
All sectors within the health and beauty industry can become saturated with inferior products. CBD face masks are no different.
The average woman uses 515 synthetic ingredients in her routine every day. Try to limit the amount of these ingredients.
Get accustomed to reading the ingredients labels of your products. Stick to simple formulas that use ingredients you can pronounce.
Also, know the type of CBD oil the manufacturer uses. If they’re using CBD isolate, you might not experience the effects you desire.
CBD works better when accompanied by other phytocannabinoids. Your skin might require broad spectrum or full spectrum CBD oil instead. These extracts contain naturally-occurring terpenes and phytocannabinoids that promote homeostasis throughout the skin endocannabinoid system.
