You May Want to Bring a Little CBD into the Shower with You
From shampoo to bath salts, these CBD-infused products help to add calmness to pre-work primping and before-bed wind-downs.
CBD, a chemical compound in the Cannabis Sativa plant, is believed to have anti-inflammatory properties and may help soothe acne and relieve dry, itchy skin. Lately, it’s been popping up on ingredient lists of beauty products everywhere, and now, bath products, too. Try one of these CBD-infused bath bombs, bath salts and more, which may help you find your zen before you start your day or hit the hay.
