CBD for acne treatment and prevention

Since forever, people have been searching for natural solutions that would help us maintain healthy and beautiful skin and alleviate skin problems. In search of effective natural skincare that does not burden the skin or cause unwanted side effects, we’ve made a remarkable discovery - the CBD cannabinoid.

CBD is one of the many cannabinoids in hemp that features positive properties when it comes to restoring skin balance and relieving skin problems. It is extremely effective in regulating the secretion of sebum and in preventing skin inflammation. That is the most common cause of acne and acne-related conditions. The great popularity of CBD skincare for combination and oily skin can certainly be attributed to the excellent results. In particular, using CBD for acne treatment without any side effects such as dry skin or increased skin reactivity.

The essence of skincare is rooted in restoring the natural balance of the skin, at which hemp is the greatest master.

How does CBD affect the skin?

Sebum is a fatty substance that our skin produces to protect the top layers of the epidermis from external influences and moisture loss. Its role in maintaining healthy skin is extremely important but producing too much sebum can quickly cause skin problems. Dead skin cells and dirt get caught in sebum and create an environment ideal for skin inflammation and the development of acne.

A study conducted in 2014 closely inspected the effect of CBD on sebocytes - the cells producing sebum. Researchers found that CBD prevents the excessive division of these cells, which helps restore the balance of impure skin. The presence of CBD in the cells was also shown to trigger anti-inflammatory reactions.

The 2016 summary highlights the antibacterial and antifungal effects of hemp that help prevent infections caused by environmental contaminants.


The effects of the My Balance Skin Clarifying Duo

Users often wonder how effective the combination of the Purifying Face Cleanser and the CBD Balancing Face Cream is in acne treatment. What results they can expect, and especially how much time they will take to show.

To find the answers, we conducted an independent study that would confirm the positive synergistic effect of the Purifying Face Cleanser and the CBD Balancing Face cream. It is worth emphasizing that it was the combination of these two products that gave the desired results in acne treatment.

Over a period of 4 weeks of regular use of the Purifying Face Cleanser and the CBD Balancing Face Cream, we were able to observe the results of their combined effectiveness.

The result: The My Balance Skin Clarifying Duo reduces excessive secretion of sebum and tightens the pores.

How to get the best results?



Thoroughly clean your skin in the morning and evening. A gentle but thorough cleansing will remove excess sebum, impurities, and makeup residue. This allows the skin to breathe and prevents your pores from clogging up. The Purifying Face Cleanser is the ideal cleanser to help your skin relax. For best results, we also recommend using cotton pads. Find them together in Sustainable Facial Cleansing Set.



This next step, which follows the daily cleanse, helps moisturize your skin and restore its natural pH. Cleansing your skin affects its natural acidity, so it is important to restore its balance in the next step. Cleansing also makes your skin thirsty, so it is essential to moisturize your skin to invigorate it and get it ready for the next steps and the active ingredients that follow. At this point, your skin will welcome antioxidants, vitamins, hyaluronic acid, and other active ingredients that help your complexion stay healthy, unified, and radiant. At Hemptouch, you can find all of these in the exceptional Moisturising Bright Essence. Gently apply the essence on your face with smooth motions from the chin towards your forehead.

All skin types need sufficient amounts of moisture and the right nourishment. Oily skin is no exception, but it is important to nurture such skin with non-comedogenic oils that don’t clog your pores but accelerate skin regeneration and strengthen its hydrolipid layer. It is here that hemp oil performs at its best. With the perfect ratio of omega fatty acids, it is one of the most active natural oils. The synergy of the hemp trilogy - hemp hydrolate, hemp oil, and CBD extract is what makes it so successful in nurturing oily skin. It soothes, rejuvenates, and balances acne-prone skin, offering a long-term solution to skin problems without the side effects. We’ve combined all the best hemp extracts in the CBD Balancing Face Cream, making it the ideal care for combination, oily and sensitive skin. It's an absolute life-saver in acne treatment.



Don’t forget to treat your skin with some extra care from time to time. You can incorporate it into your weekly routine about twice a week or whenever you feel your skin needs it. Evening treatments with the Therapeutic CBD Skin Balm will balance the excessive secretion of sebum while soothing, softening, and restoring the skin's elasticity and healthy appearance. For best results apply a small amount of the balm on damp skin with circular massaging motions. You can also apply the Therapeutic CBD Skin Balm directly on pimples or acne to speed up the recovery process and quickly get your skin to glow again.
