Long considered illegal because it was wrongly associated with recreational marijuana, hemp seed oil is very popular among those who care about the health of their skin. The many properties of this substance, including its anti-aging action and long-lasting hydration, make it a perfect natural skin care product for the whole family. Without further ado, here are all the benefits that hemp seed oil can bring you.
Hemp Oil for Skin Cleansing
Hemp seed oil is an excellent cleanser for skin prone to chronic problems. Its light consistency helps remove excess sebum from the face and purifies clogged pores. Moreover, it has incredible anti-inflammatory properties, making it ideal for skin with acneic tendencies. Oily skin will also benefit from a body oil made from hemp with a few drops of tea tree oil, grape seed oil and lavender essential oil. In addition to balancing the consistency of your natural lipids, such a mixture will also give you an enchanting floral scent!
Hemp Oil for Treating Skin Rashes
Hemp seed oil is renowned for its effectiveness on irritated skin and rashes, even those associated with eczema or psoriasis. When mixed with a few drops of tea tree oil on a cotton pad and applied to the affected areas, it gives instant results. Just make sure to continue the treatment for a few days until the condition of your skin is regularized.
Hemp Oil as Anti-aging Care
Hemp seed oil contains a high level of polyunsaturated lipids in the form of omega-3 and omega-6. The latter help to restore the skin’s elasticity. Since hemp seed oil has a similar profile to your skin’s natural lipids, it reaches the deepest layers of skin quickly. At the same time, it also boosts collagen production and leaves your skin soft, supple, and wrinkle-free.
Hemp oil moisturizing Skin Care
Throughout the day, your skin is exposed to unpredictable weather, dirt, and pollution, especially in the city. To maintain a healthy skin, you should let it rest and treat it with gentle natural products. Every evening, after removing your make-up, take the opportunity to cleanse your skin with hemp seed oil. The fatty acids it contains will penetrate your epidermis and give it all the necessary hydration to recover from the rigours of your environment.
Hemp Oil for Relieving Skin Problems
According to research published in the Journal of Dermatological Treatment in 2005, hemp seed oil is able to treat skin problems such as dermatitis. Widespread in North America, dermatitis results in dry skin, red patches, and severe itching. According to the research authors, hemp seed oil balances the plasma composition of your fatty acids. Hemp oil is also known for its ability to relieve the symptoms of rosacea, couperose, acne, shingles, and even eczema.
The versatility of hemp oil makes it an ideal natural option if your skin is prone to chronic problems, as it can be used daily without side effects.
