We all seem preoccupied by maintaining the health and youthfulness of our skin now-a-days. There are very lucrative industries built around products that keep our skin supple, glowing and young looking.
But not all skin treatments are worth the hype that is around them, and a lot of times they simply don’t work at all.
At the end of the day, while skin care products can be very helpful in maintaining healthy and radiant skin, your lifestyle is one of the most important factors. Eating well, exercising and drinking plenty of water are THE most important factors when it comes to beautiful skin.
But when these are not enough, and you need to get some extra help… hemp seed oil is there for you!
How can hemp seed oil benefit your skin?
Extensive testing of hemp seed oil as a skin care product has shown that it’s a brilliant moisturiser. It hydrates without clogging pores and balances out oily skin through regulating oil production.
Hemp seed oil contains gamma-linolenic acid (omega-6 fatty acid) which is a powerful anti-inflammatory, working in both the skin and body. Ingesting Hemp Seed oil through your diet or applying it to your skin can reduce fine lines, improve the texture of your skin and prevent ageing.
Being rich in both omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids, hemp seed oil may also help to treat skin conditions such as atopic dermatitis. This has been shown through longer term use, so don’t get disappointed if you don’t see large improvements in a short period of time. Keep persevering, it’s quietly working away and you will see results soon.
The oil also contains linoleic acid and oleic acids; these acids cannot be produced by the body and play a critical role in skin health and anti-ageing. So, you are healthy inside and out, and it shows through healthy, glowing skin.
Hemp seed oil is perfect for all skin types, but particularly helps oily or combination skin types.
The oil can be applied as an undiluted oil, in a carrier oil or in a cream to your skin, or you can add the oil to your normal diet to also see the benefits of radiant, hydrated skin.
Generally, there are few to no side effects from hemp seed oil use. Hemp seed oil is considered safe for a majority of people to use.
A small number of people with high sensitivity may find they get mild irritation when using the oil directly on their skin.
Make sure you patch test a small area of your skin first to guard against any reactions.
With all of these benefits, why not try hemp seed oil for yourself today!
