This CBD Lotion Is Saving My Dry Skin (and Muscles) This Winter
During the winter, small patches of rough, dry skin take over my shoulders and my arms. They're incredibly itchy, but it's something I've grown used to and have come to expect every year since they first appeared when I was a teenager. I typically slather emollient salves and balms on the areas to soothe them, but have since decided to swap out the tubs I use for this CBD lotion.
I had initially been interested in Lord Jones High CBD Formula Body Lotion ($60) because of its pain relieving effects (it says "Pain and Wellness Formula" right on the container), as my shoulders had been sore from consecutive days of intense workouts. I pumped a small amount onto my fingertips and started rubbing it from my shoulders to down my arms. I immediately started a chorus of "oohs" and "ahhs" in my head from the cream's luxurious cooling effect.
I quickly noticed that the two itchy dry patches I'd had on the arm that I'd just moisturized were no longer making me uncomfortable. It had only been a few minutes, but I lifted my tight sleeve to find that they were practically invisible. I was surprised to find that on top of soothing my aching muscles, this lotion calmed my super dry, irritated areas. We have a couple things to thank for that. The formula combines nonpsychoactive, hemp oil and shea butter to soothe and moisturize, along with a cooling agent.
Whether you're battling aches and pains or dry skin, this lotion pretty much has it covered.
