Pamper Big Papa This Father’s Day

Yes, you could get him another tie, or some camping gear, or.. I don’t know.. a keg of beer or whatever we think men want and like.  But wouldn’t it be cool to show the hardworking dad’s in our lives that we want them to pamper them?  Dad’s deserve to look good and feel pampered just as much as we do, but sometimes it can be hard to find high quality natural products that are masculine enough to appeal to burly dudes.  Here are some of my favorite new men’s products that will help big papa look smooth, clear-skinned and sexy, while feeling pampered and taken care of. Pick up a few for Father’s Day this year and watch daddy glow.

High marks for cannabis: Beauty super-ingredient

CBD for Life | The Organic Beauty Blog

Being a recent west coast transplant, I am no stranger to all the buzz surrounding CBD (cannabidiol) as a super potent force for health and healing.  Along with THC, CBD is one of the active cannabinoids in cannabis, accounting for about 40% of the plant’s extract.  But unlike THC, CBD is non-psychoactive (read: it’s not gonna get you high), and is loaded with tons of health benefits.  Taken internally — typically in the form of an oral spray or vaporizer — it has been found (through legitimate research published in places like The British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology) to act as a major anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-depressant, anti-psychotic, anti-cancer, and anti-convulsant.  Pretty much anti-everything-bad-you-can-think-of.  This accounts for it’s widespread use in our beloved new state of California as a first line of natural medicine to treat a variety of health issues.  But even newer research is showing some pretty exciting results about CBD’s as a super powerful beauty ingredient, with the power to slow the signs of aging, heal dry skin, and calm breakouts… all this in addition to the proven topical effects of pain relief and decreasing inflammation.

Knowing how powerful CBD is internally, I knew I had to try it’s beauty effects for myself.
