CBD – Finding the Right Option and Optimal Dosage for You

So, you have decided to start using CBD to relieve your health issues. But now, you’re facing a tough decision: what are the best CBD oils? Should you consider edibles, tinctures, vaporizers, or topicals instead? And what is the ideal dosage?

If the great number of different CBD products seems overwhelming, you’re not alone. Different products affect the body differently. In addition, every individual responds differently to CBD depending on a number of factors like age, weight and the condition being treated. All this affects what form of CBD you should use and how much you should take.

This article aims to help you work out a CBD treatment plan tailored to your individual needs and health goals.

What is Your Goal?

Start by determining your health goal. What do you want CBD to help you with? Are you struggling with anxiety? Do you need help with chronic pain?

You also need to determine what area in your body you are targeting, because, in order to be effective, CBD needs to arrive where it is needed. If the target is somewhere on your skin (e.g. acne), then you should try using CBD topicals (lotion or cream). This will ensure that a high concentration of CBD is used just where you need it, instead of having to move through your bloodstream until it reaches the target.

Are You Looking for Immediate Effects?

If you are looking for quick relief, inhaled CBD products (vaporizers) are the best choice for you. If you want to keep the CBD levels constant throughout the day, opt for oral products (oil, edibles, capsules, tinctures).

What’s the Ideal Dosage?

The effectiveness of each CBD product depends on a number of individual factors so, the dosage is also a very individual process.

It’s always best to begin with small dosages and see how your body reacts. If there are no adverse side effects, then you can gradually increase the dosage.

Even if you find the ideal dosage, it might change if you start using a product from a different manufacturer.

Can You Overdose on CBD?

Clinical trials have found that humans can take up to 1,200 mg of CBD per day without experiencing any side effects.

However, it’s always recommended to consult with your doctor before you start using any CBD products, especially if you’re already taking any prescription medications.

What’s Type of CBD is the Best?

Research has found that full-spectrum CBD products are more effective than CBD isolates because they contain all or nearly all of the compounds present in the cannabis plant. These compounds interact with each other in the body, thus enhancing CBD’s therapeutic effects.

Final Thoughts

CBD is quite a complicated subject that researchers are still trying to piece together. There aren’t any fixed guidelines to follow when it comes to using CBD to achieve your health goals. It is a highly personal experience that requires patience and experimentation.

7 Ways To Make Your Face Look Younger

Everyone wants to live forever, but NO one wants to grow old. Well, at least no one wants to LOOK old! That paradox has been ingrained in most of us from the moment we feel the effects of aging!  It is a deep-rooted desire to fight the process of growing old tooth and nail. While it’s true that no one can stop maturing, there are ways that we can slow it down or at the very least look younger. Here are some suggestions.

1. You Are What You Eat

Or, you are what your body absorbs. If you are eating foods that are prohibiting you from absorbing needed nutrients, then that can most definitely be the culprit to looking older. That is why consuming a diet that is nutrient-dense is so important! Avoiding sugar is something you may also want to consider. A diet that is low in sugar keeps insulin levels low. It is important to understand that a consistent spike in insulin levels accelerates aging.

2. Sleep

It is no secret that the body needs sleep but not just any old sleep will do. Our bodies require six to eight hours of recuperative sleep every night. If we regularly deprive ourselves of that then we will begin to age faster, and it will show! If you are suffering from long-term sleep deprivation it is best that you find the root cause and resolve it because sleep is vital to our longevity.

3. Let’s Get Physical!

There is a reason why exercise is often advised when wanting to look younger. That’s because regular exercise dramatically slows the aging process in our chromosomes (thread-like structures housed in the nucleus of each cell). Our telomeres (caps placed at the end of chromosomes like shoelaces) controls aging. As we age, our telomeres become shorter. Regular exercise halts that process helping us maintain longer telomeres which are linked with a prolonged existence. Not to mention that exercise also relieves stress and anxiety which can take its toil and show on our faces prematurely aging us.

4. Water

Hydration is very important in maintaining our youthful appearance. Especially when you consider that the human adult body is 60% of water. Not only does water cool down the body but it also delivers nutrients to the cells and removes waste. Along with drinking water, you can also eat fruits and vegetables with high water content such as watermelon, grapefruit, and cucumber.

5. Protect Your Skin

The sun is a great source of Vitamin D which is necessary for our immune health and absorbing calcium, however, the sun also ages our skin due to its harmful ultraviolet (A and B) rays. These are the types of sun rays that reach the earth’s surface. UVB rays produce sunburn and are associated with the formation of most skin cancers. UVA rays are also the cause of some cancers in the skin. Finding a sunscreen with SPF 15 (at least) that protects against both rays is ideal, also wearing hats and using umbrellas will help.

6. Skin Care: Gel

Keeping in line with skin protection, there are products that can be used that can help with the skin’s appearance. If you are having difficulties with your skin texture or if you have scars, you can use natural solutions like aloe gel or coconut oil. These can be very effective in helping the skin to heal properly and natural. Also, a good scar gel will help.

7. Make-up

How you apply your make-up can make a significant difference in how young or old you appear. Advice on make-up tips can be found all over social media platforms such as Pinterest, Facebook, or YouTube. Be sure to incorporate good habits like removing your make-up and cleaning your face before going to bed and make sure that your make-up is not too old or unsanitary.

What is all comes down to is that, we have to live a healthy lifestyle. I know that we hear this advice over and over again to the point of it being a cliché; however, there is a reason why we hear it often; BECAUSE IT’S TRUE! There’s really no way around it. If we want to look youthful yet live as long as possible, we must develop good lifestyle habits. 

PUR ATTITUDE x CELL RENEWAL NIGHT CRÈME 

PUR ATTITUDE™ LAUNCHES ADVANCED CELL RENEWAL NIGHT CRÈME 

 

An Overnight Skincare Product with Natural Polymer Time-Released Technology, Bio-Advanced Peptides and Fermented Oil

 

PUR attitude™  released Advanced Cell Renewal Night Crème, a high-performance anti-aging cream that delivers key ingredients into the skin overnight via a natural polymer time-released technology. The cream also leverages bio-advanced peptides that oxygenate the skin and promote cell renewal, and fermented oil to improve youthful suppleness of the skin.

 

“The beauty of the PUR attitude brand is that we can deliver such advanced technology using safe ingredients,” said Jerry Rayman, President of PUR attitude. “The science behind anti-aging skincare is developing at a rapid rate. The products have better performance than ever before. PUR attitude is delighted to deliver yet another high-performing product to the marketplace.”

 

Advanced Cell Renewal Night Crème is enhanced with the power of natural Hyaluronix™ technology, which delivers up to one thousand times its weight in water, binding moisture deeply into the skin. This night cream uses a complex of three different molecular weights of Hyaluronic Acid—combined with glucosamine and ceramides—to create a delivery system that encapsulates and time-releases key ingredients deep within the lower layers of the skin. The cream also delivers a bio-advanced peptide technology along with Acetyle Hexapeptide-3, which has been proven to help reduce the signs of aging.

 

While the health benefits of eating fermented, probiotic foods are widely accepted in the food industry at this time, their use in skin care is relatively new. Fermenting natural oils restructures complex molecules, transforming them into tiny “superfoods” for the skin, providing faster absorption that results in healthier, younger-looking skin. Advanced Cell Renewal Night Crème uses a fermented olive oil for superior performance.

 

Each product in the PUR attitude line is dermatologist tested and approved, backed by independent clinical studies, and follows the brand’s standards for “Safe Beauty,” avoiding harsh chemicals, parabens, PEG’s, glycols, sulfates, petro-chemicals, synthetic fragrances and artificial dyes.

 

Advanced Cell Renewal Night Crème is available in 1 fl oz at a retail price of$59. (This is approximately a six-week supply, when used once daily). For more information, visit www.PURattitude.com.
