Most of us are familiar with coconut oil, olive oil, and even avocado oil — but hemp seed oil is making a rise in the skincare world for its healing potential.
Hemp seed oil differs from CBD oil, since CBD is derived from the cannabis plant whereas hemp seed oil is derived from cold-pressed hemp seeds. This oil has been around for decades, and is most popular for helping reduce breakouts, soothe dermatitis, and slow signs of aging.
Hemp skincare products are powerful agents for helping improve your skin’s health and vitality. Here are a few of their potential benefits:
Regulates oil production:
Anyone who’s ever had acne knows the struggle of oily skin. Sometimes, even having extremely dry skin can cause your body to produce excess oil, which can lead to breakouts. Hemp seed oil helps to regulate your skin’s oil production since it’s noncomedogenic, meaning it will moisturize and hydrate your skin without clogging your pores or causing breakouts. Plus, its linoleic acid helps to regulate and improve your body’s production of sebum, the oil that lubricates your skin, so that your body produces the right quantity and consistency of oil.
The omega 3 fatty acids in hemp seed oil help to reduce inflammation, soothe redness, and even hydrate skin. This can be helpful for those who suffer from acne or rosacea, as hemp seed oil can help to create a brighter and more clear complexion while reducing irritation.
Lessens the appearance of aging:
As we age, the circles around our eyes, our wrinkles, and even our age spots increase. Hemp oil contains linoleic and oleic acids, or omega 3s and 6s, which may play a key role in reducing signs of aging. These fatty acids help to improve the structure of skin and are vital components of epidermal lipids, which are the skin’s natural fats that help to maintain skin’s moisture, keep it strong, and act as a barrier for impurities. Plus, the vitamin E and antioxidants found in hemp seed oil may help to reduce free radical damage, which keeps skin looking young and healthy. Hemp can also help to keep the skin hydrated, which helps to protect it from nutrient loss and keep it looking youthful and vibrant.
