CBD beauty care products
CBD, or cannabidiol, is an active compound derived from cannabis sativa plants. It has recently become a thing in the beauty industry. Products such as lotions, creams, serums, body wash have become increasingly popular ever since the WHO has officially approved CBD’s safety and non-addictive property in 2017. The anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of CBD can bring multiple health benefits: not only can relieve pain and inflammation, treat acne, eczema and psoriasis, it can also reduce dryness and soothe sensitive skin. Spoil your mom with a CBD beauty care product!
See below for a few CBD shops in Hong Kong and their products.
Aromatherapy is a health trend recently gaining popularity in Hong Kong. Research has shown that inhaling different essential oils can stimulate our nervous system and relieve headaches, sleep troubles, pain and stress.

What could be better than a luxurious massage at one of Hong Kong’s top spas? Massage packages are offered in a variety of styles and specialties catered for your taste and physique.
