CBD is all the rage right now in the beauty field. And while we’ll talk about the reason behind CBD’s day in the sunlight, I have to say right off the bat: I’m hard-pressed to find a brand that is doing a better job with CBD than Bogavia, and their Recovery Body Balm is absolutely stellar.
OK- CBD. Let’s talk about it. CBD is arguably the BIGGEST fad in the “wellness” space right now, for so many reasons. Yes, CBD is derived from hemp, but it will not, I repeat, it will NOT get you high. Which is precisely why CBD is so popular in products right now. Seriously, I just got back from a conference, and there were CBD sodas, beauty creams, chapsticks, coffee, meal-replacement-bars … this ingredient is everywhere right now. Why? Because CBD has some interesting properties that make it seem like a panacea. CBD has anti-inflammation properties, Vitamins A, D, and E, and essential fatty acids. As we learn more and more about CBD, we’re finding that it can be effective in treating dry skin, psoriasis, and eczema, which is why it is popping up as an ingredient in so many face creams, serums, and body lotions. And, interestingly, CBD also has analgesic (pain-killing) properties … enter the Bogavia Recovery Body Balm.
Now, you know me. I’m pretty averse to fads, so I’ve been staying away from CBD products on the whole. But, Bogavia has a truly stellar product line, and I think Alison (Bogavia’s incredible founder) is onto something with her Recovery Body Balm. This product is designed to provide quick, targeted relief to tired and stressed muscles (doesn’t that sound delicious right about now?). And get this: Bogavia’s Recovery Body Balm is cooling, with ingredients such as Arnica, Eucalyptus, Camphor, and Calendula. It smells divine, and it’s now a permanent fixture in my post-workout routine.
Here’s how I use it: After a really hard workout, I use the Bogavia Recovery Body Balm on my sorest muscles. I treat myself to a little DIY-massage as I work this balm deep into my skin. The cooling effect is wonderful, and I honestly do feel a genuine difference in the muscles that get the balm-treatment and those that don’t.
