Hemp oil has been called nature’s most balanced oil. This has led many to promote the miraculous benefits of the oil, in particular its benefits for the skin. From its moisturizing properties to its effectiveness at treating eczema, CBD has been claimed to do it all and garnered a lot of fans in the skin care as a result.
One of the reasons hemp oil is so popular is its genetic make up. Did you know it contains the exact amount of fatty acids needed for long-term human nutrition? Most people don’t get enough Omega 3 and Omega 6 in their diets and our bodies don’t product them naturally. A lack of both fatty acids can cause serious problems, including cancer.
We’re proud to announce our new “Green” line of products. You may have seen our hemp pain relief cream, which is getting rave reviews with customers already, and we’re excited to announce our new CBD eye cream. Always keeping up with the latest in innovations, SkinPro is proud to announce we’ve been working on a line of products featuring hemp for quite some time.
Let’s talk about why this is so exciting….
The Skin Benefits of Hemp Oil
By now, most people know that the skin is the body’s largest organ. They also know that it absorbs everything that is put onto it. Yet many skin products in today’s market are made from harsh chemicals. If you use any kind of moisturizer, your skin could be absorbing harsh and toxic chemicals. But by switching to a herbal, hemp oil-based product, you can completely eliminate your exposure.
As Hemp oil is completely natural, you can feel safe applying it to your skin directly. And because it contains the perfect balance of fatty acids, and these will be absorbed by your skin, it can offer a huge range of health benefits. Specifically, cannabidiol (CBD) can assist with a number of health issues such as anxiety, pain and inflammation. This element can also protect against aging. By using hemp oil products on your skin regularly, you can expect beautifully moisturized skin that feels regenerated, rejuvenated and revitalized.
How Does Hemp Benefit Your Body?
If you use hemp oil on several parts of your body every day you can expect a huge number of benefits. It’s not just your skin that will benefit, just about every part of your body will. Check out the benefits below and decide where you need to apply hemp oil.
Oil is essential for your hair. Yet many shop-bought and over-the-counter shampoos don’t include any natural, nourishing oils. This can leave your hair feeling dry and vulnerable after using them. Hemp shampoo on the other hand supplies the hair with huge amounts of oil, vitamins and minerals. These include Vitamin E, phosphate, zinc, iron and magnesium. Vitamin E is vital in protecting split ends and keeping your hair color vibrant. Zinc can strengthen your hair and aid in hair loss prevention. Hemp can also promote stronger and more resilient hair growth.
We may not think about it, but our lips are part of our skin. This means we must protect them and care for them in the same way. One of the easiest and most effective methods to do this involves using a hemp-based product such as hemp oil lip balm. That’s because Hemp is the only plant oil that contains Vitamin D. Vitamin D is vital to keep our skin look healthy, vibrant and beautiful. Our skin is also the best way to absorb vitamin D and get it where it needs to be in the body. So using a moisturizer that provides vitamin D is essential.
Hemp oil is a great way to protect your hands against all of the external elements. Especially in winter, your hands can become dry and damaged if you don’t protect them. But using a hemp oil-based product is a great way to protect them from this damage. That’s because, as well as Vitamin D, hemp oil also contains Vitamin E and other antioxidants that help to moisturize, nourish and protect the skin. Hemp oil also contains a lot of linoleic acid which is great for keeping skin nice and supple. If you use hemp oil regularly, you’ll quickly find your hands becoming softer. The skin’s protective layer will also be regenerated thanks to the high levels of Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids that it contains.
Hemp oil is great for your whole body, not just your skin. A major reason is because of hemp oil’s strong anti-inflammatory properties. Use a hemp-based balm on your body and you can expect to ease muscular ache, reduce swelling and ease pain. If you have eczema, you can expect the high levels of polyunsaturated fatty acids to treat eczema and other skin conditions. If you have psoriasis, this is probably caused by an Omega 6 fatty acid deficiency—something that hemp oil can fix, too. The Omega 6 found in hemp oil will oxygenate and hydrate the skin, helping to treat the issue. The Omega 3 fatty acids in hemp oil, on the other hand, are used to reduce blood clots varicose veins. If you want to go all out, a hemp body wash can promote total body healing and raise your body’s melatonin levels hundreds of times higher than normal. The Vitamin E found in it will also help to boost your skin’s UV defenses and neutralize the damage of free radicals. Finally, you can expect your skin’s elasticity and water retention capacity to be increased and improved when you use hemp oil-based products.
You can use hemp oil on a damp face just like you would a normal cleanser. It won’t clog your pores either since it has a comedogenic rating of 0 out of 5. If you are an acne sufferer, a hemp lotion can be a great way to reduce redness and to prevent breakouts in the future. Omega 3 fatty acids will also help in treating your skin conditions, while the Vitamin D present in hem poil with boost your skin’s elasticity, stimulate collagen production, decrease lines and reduce the appearance of dark circles under your eyes.
