It’s Unnegotiable – Hemp Seed Oil is the New Holy Grail in Skin Care.
Hemp seed oil, as it’s used in cosmetics, is a natural alternative for chemical ingredients used normally and holds a vast array of benefits for all skin types.
Sound too good to be true? Well here’s 5 reasons why it’s too good not to be used:
1) It’s a SUNSCREEN
First, with an SPF between 4 and 10, hemp oil is a natural sunblock.
It’s extremely important to protect your skin from overexposure and sunburns, especially with the rise of skin cancer, and hemp oil allows you to do so SAFELY as almost 60% of store bought sunscreens contain chemicals that disrupt hormones and can actually CAUSE cancer (retinyl palmitate and oxybenzone).
2) It’s a 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.
3) It’s a RASH TREATMENT
Hemp seed oil contains both omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids in the perfectly balanced 3:1 ratio. Because psoriasis is caused by a deficiency of omega-6 fatty acid, hemp oil is an effective treatment. It also hydrates the skin and brings more oxygen to it, which makes it a good treatment for eczema and dry, itchy skin. Because hemp oil is a natural product with no known side effects, it is ideal for treating skin irritations.
4) It’s an ACNE TREATMENT
It has a comedogenic rating of zero, meaning that it has zero chance of breaking you out or clogging your pores. Hemp oil can also 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, doesn’t block pores and will actually help the skin balance oil (sebum) production.
5) It’s ANTI-AGING
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 property, some people believe that the regular application of hemp oil slows the aging of the skin.
Whether you have dry skin and need extra moisture, battle with oily skin and need help balancing overactive sebum production, are concerned with the dangers of using commercial sunscreens, or just want to improve your skin’s texture for a more youthful appearance, adding hemp seed oil into your daily skin care routine is the way to go!
