With the abundance of natural beauty products out there, what makes hemp stand out?
Well, first of all, hemp seed oil is very rich in nutrients and unlike other plant extractions, the oil from hemp seeds have the perfect balance of the essential fatty acids in Omega 3 and Omega 6. Fatty acids are essential for the health of your skin, so for healthy and nourished skin, better get some hemp on it!
The oil in hemp seeds is one of the greatest sources of linoleic acid, the omega 6 fatty acid that helps reduce inflammation as well as skin acne, eczema or psoriasis, so if you suffer from problem skin, hemp seed oil might well be the answer.
Some of the great beauty benefits of hemp seed oil is that it naturally moisturises and rejuvenates because of the very high levels of EFA, it absorbs into the skin quickly and doesn’t leave any greasy residue and as it doesn’t clog pores like many other oils, it works well to balance oily skin.
Hemp seed oil calms irritated and damaged skin and due to it’s high levels of antioxidants, it even helps to slow down the effects of skin ageing, reducing fine lines and wrinkles on your skin.
Hemp seed oil is rich in vitamin A and E as well as minerals like potassium, magnesium, iron, zinc, calcium and phosphorus. Ingesting hemp seed oil improves cardiovascular health and blood flow to the skin and it adds vitamin D, allowing the absorption of calcium that is needed for soft, smooth skin.
