Celebs are full of beauty secrets: Just yesterday, we learned the secret to Kristen Bell’s glowing skin when hubby Dax Shepard gave us a glimpse at her “scary” nighttime routine that left the actor shook (hint: It involves an LED face mask). As for Mandy Moore, she’s opting for something a little more… green, and it’s all in the name of preventing high heel pain.
In an interview with Coveteur just prior to walking the red carpet at the Golden Globes in her gorgeous black Rosie Assoulin gown (now up for auction), the This Is Us actress revealed that she would be giving Lorde Jones CBD oil ($50) a go in an effort to fight pain in her feet while sporting a pair of less-than-comfortable Jimmy Choos.
“I always try to choose really comfortable shoes, because as I’ve gotten older I just can’t hack being in heels for an extended period of time,” she explained to the outlet. “Last year I thought I had gone for a pair of comfortable heels, but by the end of the night I was in so much pain I felt like I was walking on glass, so I kind of ended the evening early… although honestly, I’ll find any excuse for an early night.”
This year, the 33-year-old hit up her stylist, Erica Cloud, instead to see if there was some kind of numbing cream she could apply to her feet. “She was like, ‘No! [Try] Lord Jones CBD Oil,” she revealed, adding, “So it could be a really exciting evening! I could be floating this year.”
CBD oil (AKA cannabidiol) is said to work to fight inflammation, helping to soothe sore muscles, joint pain, and even skin conditions, so it’s very possible it could help in the case of sore tootsies.
It also just so happens to be one of the main ingredients found in marijuana. Unlike the drug’s other well-known ingredient, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) however, which causes the psychoactive effects one experiences while taking it, CBD oil has no such properties and can be legally sold in the US if derived from industrial hemp — you may have also seen it in Mirai Clinicial’s “weed bath bombs.”
In a word, it won’t get you high, but it just might ease your pain and make you feel relaxed!
With no word from Moore on whether or not the oil actually helped her feet survive the award ceremony, we just may need to do our OWN investigation. *Places item in cart*
