The OMazing Effect: What Happens When You Add CBD to Your Yoga Practice 

Expert Advice
Fitness

CBD is continuing to make waves in the wellness conversation. With potential benefits ranging from pain relief to better sleep to peacefulness and calm, CBD is a powerful plantbut does it have a place on your yoga mat?

“At Jasper Organics, we view CBD not just as a product, but as a catalyst that can be used to transform different areas of one’s life, from physical ailments to mental clarity. And because of the unique way it brings balance to the body, CBD provides the perfect inner environment for outward change.” 

So, what would be the perfect lifestyle practice to complement the benefits of CBD? Yoga.  
Whatever your level or wherever you find your flow, the connection between CBD and yoga—and what happens when you add it to your wellness routine—might surprise you. 

CBD Hemp Leaves

It’s an ancient pairing.
Did you know that the same ancient holy books and Vedas that first mention yoga are also the first to mention hemp? Our “universal regulator,” the endocannabinoid system, has a crucial component called anandamide—the “bliss molecule”—which is named after the Sanskrit word ananda, or bliss. Sanskrit is the language of yoga. Āsana, hatha, and prāna probably sound familiar, whether you practice regularly or you're a yoga newbie. CBD and yoga have a shared origin... interesting, right?

Yoga-Meditation-Pose

Adding it to your yoga flow.
If you’re ready to amplify your yoga practice naturally, here are a few products you can try the next time you step onto your mat and into your zen zone. You can expect pain relief, energy, and an overall calming sense of self.

Daybreak Roll On

Daybreak Roll On  

This CBD product fits right in your pocket. Containing hundreds of unique plant compounds called terpenes (think instant aromatherapy), the Daybreak Roll On delivers a soothing scent with vitalizing effects that are best suited for use before your yoga practice.  

Use: Gently roll the glass roller along your temples, neck, jaw and/or any sore spots on your body. This topical CBD product is extremely stimulating once it kicks in (about 30 minutes), immediately relieving pain, tension, and stress.  

Active Ingredients: CBD, Jojoba Oil, Vetiver, Lavender, Frankincense, White Fir.

CBD Body Lotion

CBD Body Lotion  

Luxury meets relaxation on the molecular level with this high-quality (and naturally fragrant) body lotion. Infused with 250 milligrams of active CBD, this product is designed to soothe and relieve soreness + stiffness in your muscles & joints while leaving your skin smooth. The lotion can be applied immediately before and after your yoga flow.  

Use: Apply generously to the areas that cause you pain or those that are ‘tested’ most by your yoga practice—knees, low back, etc. Massage thoroughly into skin and prepare to feel seriously supple and relaxed. 

Active Ingredients: Full Spectrum Hemp Distillate, Jojoba Oil, Shea Butter, Beeswax.

Relax CBD Oil

Full Spectrum CBD Oil (Relax) 

CBD is powerful, especially when it comes to promoting mental and emotional wellbeing. Our 500mg CBD oil is likely strong enough to provide all the upliftment needed when ingested prior to your practice, helping to make a difference with your yoga flow by encouraging equilibrium. And just like with yoga, CBD’s benefits tend to emerge slowly but strongly over time.   

Use: Under your tongue, take roughly half a dropper (~8 milligrams) of our oil half an hour before your next yoga session begins. You’ll likely feel calmer and more at home in your body. Namaste! 

Active ingredients: Full Spectrum, Full Active Hemp-Derived CBD.   
 
If you’re ready to raise your baseline, adding CBD to your yoga and wellness routine might be your next move. Want to get started? Use code MINDBODY for 20% off all Jasper products!

The Summer Skincare Routine for Outdoor Workouts and Activities

Beauty

Skincare

Summer is officially here, and with that, there are so many fun activities that will motivate you to get outside to stay in shape and strive for those post-quarantine fitness goals. But before you decide to get outside to enjoy some walking, yoga, swimming, or hiking, remember these best practice skincare habits to protect your skin from common skin concerns, such as, sunburns, chafing, and excessive dryness. 

Here, board-certified Dermatologist, Dr. Bottiglione, shares some advice to help your skin stay healthy as you embark into the great outdoors.  


But first, protect

When going outside, the sun is going to be your biggest culprit for damaging your skin. While the sun boosts benefits like vitamin D production, take notice when your skin is overexposed to the sun’s harmful rays as it becomes dangerous. When overexposed to direct sunlight, the skin is irritated, causing sunburns, dryness, and sensitivity that can increase the chances for wrinkles and skin cancer as we age.  

Luckily, staying inside when it’s so pleasant outside is not the only skincare alternative to avoid the sun’s damaging rays. Here are a few simple tips to prep your skin before stepping outside.  
Opt to protect your skin with a clinical-grade sunblocking lotion of 15 SPF or higher.

“Anytime you go outside, you need to apply sunscreen to your skin,” advises Dr. B. “Ensure you apply sunscreen to the full body and reapply often. In the morning, after cleansing your face, is the best time to apply.” He recommends a spray for oily skin, or the Dermatologist’s Choice Sunscreen Enhanced Moisturizer for dry to combination skin types that needs a little extra hydration.  
 
 
The key is the more intentional you are about proactively protecting your summer skin, the healthier it will be. It may sound simple, but your skin will be happier when you take a preventive approach rather than a reactive approach—for example, applying the sunscreen moisturizer before a walk to help to avoid the treatment of a sunburn after. When prepping your bag for the fun day ahead, make sure to add sunscreen, a hat, and plenty of water.  
 
 
Now the real excitement begins! However you decide to get your fitness outdoors, we have the skincare routine you need or a carefree and healthy day. 


Yoga / Walking 

Deep breath. Like our favorite flow, these skincare tips will keep our mind—and our skin—at ease. If you take your yoga practice outdoors, wear an SPF shirt, and lay your mat under a nicely shaded tree to help shield you from excessive sun exposure. 

“Avoiding direct sunlight and wearing protective clothing is smart to protect your skin from sun damage. Even if you are going for a relaxing walk or doing just a few sun salutations. Staying out of the direct sunlight will reduce your risk of sun damage and wrinkles.”     - Dr. B


Swimming 

Swimming is one of the best cardio and strength training workouts, while also an enjoyable activity during the summer. Whether you are swimming in open water or laps in the pool, the excess amount of water with exposure to pool chemicals and environmental pollutants can cause skin irritation and dryness. To keep your skin hydrated and protected, Dr. B. recommends applying the Dermatologist’s Choice Pre-Bath Oil to your skin before entering the water. This will seal your skin’s protective barrier to avoid skin irritation from chemicals and debris. He adds, “The Pre-Bath Oil is what I give to all my patients with eczema or dry skin. It is the only thing that will protect and also deeply hydrate the skin.” Just apply this serum before you put on your sunscreen, and you're good to go! 


Hiking 

With warm temperatures during the summer months, it’s the perfect time for hiking and exploring the mountainous outdoors. It is essential to take the necessary steps to avoid your skin becoming sunburnt, irritated, or breaking out. “Wearing a hat with a large brim that will shade your face and neck is key. A baseball cap is just not enough for the sun protection you need. After your hike, it is important to clean your face and pores of sweat, dirt, and toxins with Dermatologist’s Choice Glycolic Peel Cleansing Pads to avoid breakouts from occurring,” Dr. B. warns. Keep them in your bag for easy cleansing after a hike. 


Cycling/ Running 

One of the biggest skin concerns cyclists or runners usually bring to dermatologists is chafing. Even if you’re just cruising along the seaside or taking a cycling class, those tight clothes and friction can cause some intense irritation and redness. “When you have an issue with chafing, you need to protect your skin. You need armor over the skin. Beeswax, for example, is thick to coat the skin and protect it. Another effective option is the hydrating Dermatologist’s Choice Pre-Bath Oil. For best results, moisturize your skin, and then add a piece of clothing to cover it (that is actually like armor),” Dr. B. shares. Are you a runner? Feel free to use this tip too before your next mile or 30.  


Workout done, now what? 

At the end of your activity, the real results of that skin preparation set in. But sometimes, you need a little extra support afterwards. After any good workout, cleansing off the sweat, dirt, toxins, and irritant is paramount. Dermatologist Choice pH Balanced Cleanser helps to gently but effectively remove sweat, oil, and restore the skin’s natural pH levels.  

Did you end up getting a sunburn, or is your skin dry from the elements? Soothe with the Pre-Bath Oil with natural oils like sunflower and jojoba oil for deep hydration and healing.

“Sun damage can manifest in multiple ways. Most often, you will notice a sunburn first, which can then lead to irritated skin—and over time, sun damage increases the appearance of wrinkles.” For safe measure, at night regenerate sun-damaged skin with Dermatologist's Choice Ultra Anti-Aging Cream with 15% non-neutralized glycolic acid to your skin. This powerful dermatology treatment rebuilds the collagen and exfoliates fine lines, sunspots, and acne on the skin. “Do not apply the Ultra Anti-Aging Cream on a sunburn or irritated skin,” Dr. B. shares. These are long-term habits to aid in maintaining your best skin health.
