In Fashion we have FOUR seasons: Spring/Summer, Fall/Winter, Resort and Awards Season.
The most glitzy and watched season of the year, Awards season, is underway – from January’s Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild awards to the Grammy awards in February and the Oscars in March not to mention all the parties and luncheons in between, it is go-go-go time for the Hollywood elite.
That means glamorous gowns, eye-catching jewels and lots and lots of sore aching feet.
Just imagine being on your feet for hours upon hours at an awards’ show or a red carpet in SERIOUS sky-high heels, I know my feet would have a heartbeat and I swear I would look like a baby deer trying to walk in heels after just a few hours but I can’t even image what it would feel like after an entire day and night of posing for photos, walking the red carpet, awards show and after party!
However, Celebrity stylists have a red-carpet trick for combating those swollen achy feet: CBD lotion.
Stylist’s are applying CBD lotion to their clients feet BEFORE they walk the red carpet. Stars like Mandy Moore, Busy Philips and Olivia Wilde swear by it to soothe their achy stiletto-bound feet.
The cannabis-derived, nonpsychoactive (as in, you won’t feel any high here) ingredient has become a popular trend in the beauty industry in the last year.
Right now CBD oil is definitely one of the most buzzworthy beauty ingredients around. Beauty nerds are having a heyday with it, extolling its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, emollient, and regenerative properties as a treatment for everything from acne to psoriasis to signs of aging.
This hemp-derived oil infused into lotion reaps a ton of anti-inflammatory benefits when used topically, especially since it contains a powerful antioxidant and omega-rich formula.
Those strong antioxidant properties in CBD oil make it perfect for reducing inflammation in the skin.
Applied topically in the oil or lotion/cream forms CBD penetrates the skin and blocks nerve endings and chemicals that elicit pain in the body. It helps greatly with arthritis, knee pain, joint pain and other nerve pains.
I have been using Diamond CBD Biotech CBD 250mg Cream on set on models feet and on my own and let me tell you, it’s a miracle worker. Diamond CBD works with industrial hemp farms in Kentucky, Colorado, and Scandanavia, and every batch of their harvests are quality checked for standards – including the absence of GMO’s, pesticides, fertilizers, and heavy metals. The plants are manually selected with careful precision, then gently harvested and dried under the most optimal conditions. The natural CBD is then extracted using supercritical CO2 equipment which retains the naturally occurring beneficial molecules in the hemp plant.
Diamond CBD’s concentrated, CBD oil lotion contains menthol and 100% natural CBD infused hemp oil (sourced from industrial hemp). It not only helps soothe aches and pain but also reducing swelling making it a perfect partner for even the most daunting high heels.
It’s super easy to use just apply the lotion before you put your heels on by rubbing a small amount all over the foot (to heels, tops and bottoms of feet). Massage in like you would any other lotion. It has a clean tea-tree oil scent that isn’t overwhelming. You will immediately feel a cooling, soothing effect followed by a slight numbing effect which I can best describe as a melting away of any aches or tight muscles and Icy-Hot type of relief.
It has been a life-saver on set for models who have to shove their feet in what are sometimes too small or really uncomfortable shoes and for me using it throughout the day has totally eliminated those “standing all day” foot aches- no more limping home at the end of a 12 hour shoot day.
A must-have to help keep you pain free in heels and on your feet for HOURS, a high heeled shoe lovers BFF.
(CBD creams/lotions are most effective in high concentrations like this 250mg so always opt for the higher MG when using topically).
