Adding Hemp Seed Oil To Your Skincare Routine
Hemp seed oil is good for your skin. And not just one specific skin type either, -- this oil is suitable for all skin types. You can even use hemp seed oil on your hair as well.
With its naturally nutritious components, hemp seed oil is an excellent natural moisturizer that offers relief to a lot of skin conditions, irritations, and inflammations.
5 Reasons to Start Using Hemp Seed Oil for Your Skin
Looking for the simple truth? Here are my top five ways natural hemp seed oil will benefit your skin:
1. An Effective Moisturizer
The fats, or lipids, in hemp oil are similar to those found in the skin. This makes it an effective moisturizer and protectant for skin. It increases the elasticity of the skin and brings new life to dry, tired or dehydrated skin.
2. As a Dietary Supplement, Benefits the Skin
Taking it as a nutritional supplement can thin the blood, helping to prevent unsightly varicose veins on the skin. Hemp seed oil is made from the only edible seed that contains gamma-linolenic acid. This substance is needed to regulate hormone levels and it can diminish hormone-related acne outbreaks.
3. Skin Rashes and Acne Can Be Treated
Hemp oil can bring down the redness and irritation of acne outbreaks. Over time, it can help eliminate acne by keeping the skin healthy and hydrated. It absorbs quickly and doesn’t block the pores but will actually help the skin balance oil production.
4. Rich in Supplements for Healthy Skin
Not only is hemp oil rich in vitamins A and E, it also contains trace amounts of important minerals like potassium, magnesium, iron, zinc, calcium and phosphorus. It is also high in antioxidants, which are elements that prevent or slow cell damage. Because of this, regular application of hemp oil slows the aging of the skin.
5. Used in Cosmetics and Lotions
In combination with Castile soap, hemp seed oil can be used as a gentle makeup remover. If all of the makeup doesn’t come off with one application of the oil, it can be repeated. You are getting the added benefit of providing moisture to your face while cleansing it.
