When it comes to self-care and grooming, I don’t play games. I’m the kinda guy that takes two showers a day and staying fresh is at the top of my priority list. Coming from a sport that requires your skin being exposed to sweat and dirt all the time, hygiene was and is crucial to maintaining a healthy life.
CBD ended up being so beneficial for my life in pain relief that I was interested in seeing what else this super ingredient could do. What I discovered is that CBD is a BIG player outside of pain relief. And it makes sense – one of CBD’s best-known properties is its anti-inflammatory benefits along with an array of vitamins, so why wouldn’t it be effective in other uses?
Turns out, CBD is now in everything from shampoos to coffee but for now, I’m picking my top 5 favorite products in fresh care to keep you oh “so fresh and so clean clean.”*cue OutKast*
I say this list is for primadonnas and pro athletes because, well, it just fits.
- CBD Mask from MĀSK
Since retiring from the NFL, my new duties take me everywhere and a lot of that time finds me on airplanes. The air in there takes a toll on my skin, leaving my skin looking just as jet-lagged as I am feeling.
Fortunately for us CBD lovers, MĀSK created top-notch skin refreshers for whatever your skin is needing at the moment. Remember how I said one of CBD’s best-known qualities is its anti-inflammatory properties? Well MĀSK has managed to hone in on this feature combined with other potent botanicals for skin relief. And they back everything by labs to make sure you are only getting the best ingredients.
2. CBD Lip Balm from Try The CBD
I’m not alone here – chapped lips are not cute for anyone and I know my wife is not a fan, so I made it a point to make sure I’m ready. If you’re like me, you probably use whatever chapstick you grab last second from the racks in the check-out line. I never paid much attention to it but while on the CBD self-care hunt, I came across Try The CBD’s CBD Lip Balm 50MG.
They are the real deal when it comes to CBD lip balms. People tend to confuse CBD oil and hemp oil and call it the same thing. In reality, hemp oil is made from ONLY the seeds of the hemp plant and contains no CBD. Compared to CBD oil which is made with the WHOLE hemp plant. Both have different but useful purposes.
3. CBD Body Lotion from Lord Jones
Now fellas, I know we can all get a little lazy (and ashy) in our skin-care but Lord Jones’ body lotion will make you WANT to use it.
Upon application, the high CBD Formula Body Lotion has a cooling effect. Each bottle has 100mg of CBD oil and is designed for easy absorption. The best part is your skin will look fresh while your hidden aches and pains are being taken care of.
4. CBD Mints from Mr.Moxey
Another thing my wife can’t stand is bad breath and I can’t blame her. That’s why when I came across Mr. Moxey’s 5mg CBD Peppermint Mints, I had to find out what it was all about.
If you didn’t know, CBD can have a very nutty and earthy flavor to it which is why I was happily surprised to see that Mr. Moxey’s CBD infused mints actually leave a refreshing and cool taste behind. The creators behind the mints really focused on getting their recipe just right with the precise dose of CBD for relief. Perfect for a breath and stress pick-me-up.
5. CBD Cleansing Body Bar from Cannuka
Made with 50mg of CBD oil and full of antioxidants, antimicrobial and antibacterial properties, the cleansing body bar is just what you need to chill out with after a long workday or gym session.
It doesn’t dry your skin like a lot of other body bars tend to do and leaves behind a clean aroma. This bar is definitely a keeper.
Yes, this is me offering beauty advice. Yes, I like men’s grooming products. Yes, I like drinking DEFY and see the boosting benefits of CBD on the inside and the outside. And yes, I’ll share more of my favorites in the future. Peace.
