Give your skin the 'high' it ultimately craves.

Cannabis has become quite popular in the skincare world, and with its tendency to provide users with next-level results, we can definitely see why. Living in Colorado, I have learned the countless benefits of cannabis and why adding it to your skincare regimen is a must. Its anti-inflammatory properties paired with the embedded antioxidants make it perfect for alleviating many of our skincare woes. Recently, we had a chance to check-in with CEO of Undefined Beauty, Dorian Morris, to deep-dive into the power of CBD.

Undefined Beauty founder, Dorian Morris wingedcbd.com

Though a champion for its capabalities, the beauty and social entrepreneur quickly proclaimed that CBD isn't a panacea. "You have to take a holistic approach, using known botanical superpowers and CBD as the supercharger. What's in the formula and not in the formula is just as important, if not more, than the presence of CBD," she explained.

Dorian also shared the four main skincare benefits that make CBD a powerful ingredient in your beauty arsenal:

  • "It's antioxidant-rich and has more antioxidant horsepower than Vitamin C and Vitamin E. Antioxidants are critical for skincare because they help prevent free radical damage that leads to early skin wrinkling and hyperpigmentation - both things nobody has on their skin wishlist.
  • "It's anti-inflammatory, and inflammation is what's at the heart of most skincare concerns, from rosacea to acne to wrinkles. Again, it's a partner in crime for 'graceful aging' (I'm not a big fan of the term 'anti-aging').
  • "It's a balancer. If you have overactive sebum (aka oily skin), it turns off oil production. If you have dry skin, it turns on oil production. This is why CBD has been heralded as a game-changer for acne but more broadly, it has the power to help all skin types move back to homeostasis.
  • "The most important benefit is that CBD is an enabler. Your body has a natural endocannabinoid system--Mother Nature knew what she was doing--and your skin has many receptors. When using CBD topically, it allows for better penetration aka better performance aka more bang for your buck, taking all the other ingredients in the formula along for the ride, which is why choosing a clean/non-toxic formula is key."

With all of that said, we just know you can't wait to try this trend. Ahead, find some amazing cannabis-infused products that will elevate your skincare collection to new heights.

So, if you've been rocking with this site for several years now, you might vaguely recall an article that I wrote, a couple of years back entitled, "Why You Need To Grieve Your Past Relationship". The bottom line was, if you don't make the time to go through the five stages of grief — denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance — even when it comes to the ending of a romantic relationship, you could 1) mistake a lack of thorough and proper grieving for still loving someone and/or 2) prolong the process of healing, so that you can actually move forward.

We all know that advocacy for inclusion and equality should be year-round, since we all have to be our fullest selves all day every day. Identity is a key element of doing that, and for LGBTQ+ professionals, this can include the question of coming out at work. Some may wonder whether their personal business is, well, anybody's business at work, while others might want to feel safe in the office being out, loud, and proud. Either way, coming out in the workplace is indeed an issue that not only must be addressed, but addressed appropriately.

Love is beautiful and social media is a wonderful way to showcase and spread it. However, many times it's the content with a bit of controversy or drama tied to it that gets all the double taps. But as my father once told me, "It's fine to seek drama in your art and interests, but love should make you happy and feel peace." When he said that, it stuck with me. For a long time, I think I sought out excitement in my relationships and that can lead to a lot of unhappiness or unhealthy situations.
