An Esthetician-Approved Skincare Regimen that Includes CBD

Added bonus: It's affordable.

It's not every day that an esthetician-approved skincare regimen materializes in life, which makes today extra lucky.

Licensed esthetician Sofie Pavitt offers an array of skin-loving services at her Lower East Side spa in New York City. She specialises in micro-current facials and chemical peels, but you can just as easily add-on a blast of brightening Oxygen or some healing LED light therapy.

With an unmistakeable glow that shows, Pavitt recently shared that a CBD facial oil by Brain Dings is the "cherry on top" of her flawless complexion.

The inflammation-fighting ingredient is great for skin woes ranging from acne, to eczema, to sunburn, and rashes. She adds droplets of CBD to clients' masks at the end of facials, and uses it to spot treat breakouts and rosacea.

"What I love about Brain Dings is that it is carried in pure hemp oil that doesn't clog pores," she begins. "Many cannabidiol-rich facial oils are carried in MCT or olive oil, which can cause blackheads and congestion in the skin."

Peep her full lineup of skincare picks below.


Nivea Japan

Sun Protect Water Gel SPF 50, $12

J-Beauty lovers can try out Nivea Japan's water-gel SPF-protective formulas. If you want to go cleaner, I recommend Tizo Skin's clean blends which protect using mineral blockers like Zinc and contain ingredients like ceramides and vitamins C + E. Their priming sunscreen is my favorite.


Mad Hippie

Mad Hippie Vitamin C Serum, $34

Truth be told, this blend doesn't contain my preferred forms of vitamin C. However, it receives top reviews, I do like the company, and it's available at Ulta.


Dr. Dennis Gross

Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Universal Daily Peel, $88

This isn't the pick for green goddesses or clean beauty nuts (like me), but the regular beauty world loves these facial peel pads. Pivett uses them twice per week. For a gentler option, consider the PHA-powered Zelens PHA+ Bio-Peel Resurfacing Facial Pads, $80-110.

Cosmic Glow Oil, $108

Small-batch beauty ensures freshness of ingredients, using naturally sourced, organic ingredients. Credo Beauty carefully vets the ethical integrity of its clients, which is partly how you know you can trust this squeaky-clean company.

The silky facial oil absorbs fully and imparts antioxidant vitamin C and essential Omegas, while soothing with blue tansy, roman chamomile, and amla ingredients.


Brain Dings

Phytocannabinoid-Rich Hemp Oil, 1000mg CBD, $120

It also comes in a 500mg strength of $80, but why scrimp on one of nature's most potent healers? It's worth it.
