Another First for The Harley Street Skin Clinic.
As my regular readers will know, I recently posted about how a couple of CBD oil drops under the tongue, helped to take away the pain of my husband’s damaged finger. At the time I found it hilarious, and thought he was making a fuss over nothing…but recently I tripped over a loose paving stone in Harley Street and sank rather gracefully (well, I thought so!) to the ground. Luckily a girlfriend was with me and helped to slow the fall so I did not do any lasting damage, except to my dignity. I was, however, rather shocked…or rather, in shock…so when I returned to the clinic I reached for the CBD drops. Three drops under the tongue, and voila….30 minutes later I was calmer and the shaking had gone.
For those who are not aware, one of the most talked-about cosmetic ingredients this year has been Cannabidiol (CBD), which is a substance found in the cannabis plant, but without the psychoactive effects of marijuana – so CBD will not get you ‘high’ or into a mind-altering state …but it is proving to be a useful tool in pain and anxiety relief as well as helping to reduce acne and stressed skin when applied topically, due to its anti-inflammatory and antiseptic qualities.
Here at The Harley Street Skin Clinic we have been recommending CBD sublingual drops to our patients for a while as part of their overall wellness – and with good results – so the next stage was to look at the best way of using CBD oil directly on the skin as part of a skincare regime. We tried a few variations using willing friends and family, and again the results were very good, with reports of glowing skin and reduction of acne breakouts……which is why we have developed the first facial using CBD oil …..the CBD Stressbuster.
Firstly 3 drops of CBD are taken sublingually as CBD has the ability to act on the brain’s serotonin receptors to relax and calm. Then the skin is double-cleansed to thoroughly remove all debris and accumulated dirt followed by a relaxing, deep tissue massage using more CBD oil, concentrating on key pressure points, to help detox stressed skin and to restore a natural glow. Finally a light film of CBD cream is applied to seal and protect the skin.
The brand of CBD we have been using, and selling in the Clinic, is by MariPharm maripharm.co.uk because it is the purest CBD oil we tried, with a clear, yellow colour and a neutral taste. Plus MariPharm operate according to photo-parmaceutical standards, guaranteeing a consistent CBD content. This is important.
We only added this facial in the past few days, but we have already booked in several celebrity patients who have been delighted with the results.
If you fancy trying it for yourself the CBD Stressbuster Facial takes one hour and costs £120.00. Phone 0207 436 4441
