HOW TO USE [FACE IT]
We recommend testing [FACE IT] on a small area of skin on your hand or arm to understand how your skin will absorb the product.
Typically, the serum is absorbed completely within 10 minutes, however a longer absorption time may be required for those with oily skin or in humid climates.
Starting with a clean face, apply 0.25 mL to 0.5 mL of the serum directly to the ‘T’ zone of your face using the dropper. Rub the serum in very well using a circular motion. While rubbing the serum into your skin, focus on any problem areas such as scarring, wrinkles, or inflammation.
Wait until the serum is fully absorbed before applying additional moisturizer and/or makeup. For best results, repeat this application morning and night.
THE MAIN EVENT: CBD
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring compound found in the resinous flower of cannabis and hemp, plants with rich histories as medicine going back thousands of years. Today, the medicinal, therapeutic, and cosmetic properties of CBD are being tested and confirmed by scientists and doctors around the world.
More recently, research is finding tremendous benefits from CBD and skin health, including reducing inflammation, scarring, and various acne conditions. Details on current research were presented in February 2018 by Jeanette Jacknin M.D. at the 2018 American Academy of Dermatology Annual Meeting.
