The Benefits Of Hemp Oil For Your Skin
Hempseed oil, or “hemp oil,” has a wide range of health uses from relieving certain types of chronic pain, to reducing the effects of aging and leaving your hair healthier and more manageable. More people than ever are using hemp oil to keep their skin looking and feeling clearer, softer, and more supple. This is because hemp oil works differently than most other skincare products and its nourishing vitamins and moisturising qualities go to work right away healing and rejuvenating your skin.
How Is Hemp Oil Harvested?
Before we take a look at some of the benefits of hemp oil for your skin, we should understand how it is made. Hemp oil is harvested by cold-pressing hemp seeds. Hemp oil is often unrefined and typically clear green in colour with a distinct nutty flavour. Because hempseed oil is made from the hemp seed itself, it doesn’t typically contain any THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the psychoactive component of cannabis.
With that in mind, we are going to take a look at some of the benefits of using hemp oil for your skin:
Hemp Oil Moderates Oil Production- sometimes our skin can be oily, and this can lead to breakouts, blemishes, and more. If your skin is prone to being oily, hemp oil can moisturise it without clogging your pores. This is because hemp oil can help to balance out oily skin and regulate the skin’s oil production.
Hemp Oil Moisturises And Soothes Inflammation- our skin can become red and inflamed for a wide range of reasons and hemp oil can help by moisturising and soothing inflammation. How? Hemp oil contains the omega-6 fatty acid, gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), which is a powerful anti-inflammatory which can encourage skin growth and new cell generation.
Hemp Oil Treats Atopic Dermatitis- hempseed oil is rich in omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. When we consume these nutrients, many common skin conditions including atopic dermatitis can be successfully treated.
Hemp Oil Has Anti-Aging Properties- if you want younger, healthier looking skin naturally, use hemp oil. Hemp oil is effective at reducing fine lines and wrinkles as well as preventing many of the signs of aging. How does hemp oil do this? Hemp oil contains linoleic acid and oleic acids which play an important role in skin health and anti-aging.
