Today we’re going to talk about some of the ways hemp oil is one of the best things out there for your skin. Hemp oil is filled with so many good for you vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats such as: magnesium, potassium, Vitamin B1 & B2, Omega-3 & Omega-6 fatty acids, and Vitamin E. We benefit from all the good stuff found in hemp oil in two ways: by eating it and applying it to our skin. Without further ado, let’s find out some of the benefits of using hemp oil on your skin!

HEMP OIL WON’T CLOG YOUR PORES

Did you know that oils are rated on a scale of 0-5, 0 being non-comedogenic, meaning it won’t clog your pores, and 5 being comedogenic, meaning it will clog your pores?

Coconut oil is rated a 4, this is an oil that is very likely to cause clogged pores. Meanwhile, rose hip oil is a 1 and hemp oil is rated a 0!

USING HEMP OIL IN SKIN CARE FOR CLEANSING

Since hemp oil won’t clog your pores, it works wonderfully as an oil cleanser. Simply rub 1 tablespoon of hemp oil into your skin, then cover with a hot washcloth to steam. Your skin will soak up any remaining oil and it will look plump and hydrated.

The fats, or lipids, in hemp oil are similar to the ones found in skin, making it an effective moisturizer and protector for our skin.

HEMP OIL TREATS SKIN CONDITIONS AND REDUCES SIGNS OF AGING

Hemp seed oil is made from the only edible seed that contains gamma-linolenic acid. This substance is needed to regulate hormone levels and it can diminish hormone related acne.

Psoriasis is caused by a deficiency of omega-6 fatty acids and since hemp oil is chock full of these wonderful omegas, it’s very effective in treating psoriasis. It also hydrates and helps bring oxygen to your skin, making it an effective treatment for eczema, and dry, itchy skin.

Hemp oil fills skin with extra moisture and stimulates the natural production of collagen which helps fight fine lines and wrinkles, making this a really great anti-aging ingredient.

When it comes to beauty products and skincare trends, it can seem like new treatments are popping up each year. It can sometimes be difficult to know what can actually be beneficial for your body, but going with natural herbs and plants is always a good idea. Hemp is one plant in particular that has many advantages for your body and skin and has become quite trendy in the realm of personal beauty.

Knowing how to use hemp in the most effective ways for your health is key to reaping its benefits. Making at-home skincare masks from hemp or eating hemp seed oil in your foods are both simple techniques, but it is important to know a little background about this natural miracle.

How Does Hemp Help My Skin?

Hemp is known to have high levels of essential fatty acids, including all nine essential amino acids in their breakdown. By infusing your body with these much-needed nutrients, your skin will begin to feel clearer and have a better, brighter shine. Hemp oil invigorates the skin by preventing moisture loss, which is why many trendy beauty products today include facial lotions made from hemp.

Your skin will begin to feel clearer and have a better, brighter shine.

Furthermore, by being fueled with fatty acids, hemp can help reduce skin rashes and acne by providing the skin with more oxygen. Applying hemp-based products to your skin will improve the skin’s elasticity and overall tone, counteracting redness and blemishes with its natural formula. Before you know it, hemp will have your skin feeling and looking beautiful and clean.

How to Add More Hemp to Your Life

Besides adding any number of hemp-based products to your daily beauty routine, such as soaps, moisturizers, and shampoos, you can also utilize hemp in other ways for positive skin and body health.
Adding hemp seeds to your morning smoothie is a great idea for introducing the nutrients of hemp into your body. They do not have a strong taste that will deter you from sprinkling them in a salad or in cereal; eating hemp seeds will enhance the flavor of your meal with a more nutty taste. Also, you can buy hemp seed oil to use as a finishing oil over pasta or vegetables. Any opportunity to add a little hemp to your daily snacks and meals is a wise way to gain its natural benefits.

If you are looking for a fresh healthcare trick, try using hemp-based beauty products or cooking with hemp as a means to birthing a new, nourished you.

The Fay Farm Review | Hemp Skin Care

We’ve been on a hunt to find natural and healthy body care products during the past month, when we ran into The Fay Farm – a boutique natural body care…

We’ve been on a hunt to find natural and healthy body care products during the past month, when we ran into The Fay Farm – a boutique natural body care brand based out of Whidbey Island, Washington. Being a hemp based product was an added bonus considering all the nutritional benefits that hemp oil has to offer.


The Fay Farm Hemp Healing Skin Care Products

After some consideration, we decided to try out three of their products – the Healing Hemp Lotion, the Healing Hemp Salve, and the Healing Hemp Serum. Before I dive into reviewing these products, I’d like to provide some background on the Fay Farm because I think their story is quite unique.

STORY OF FAY FARM

The Fay Farm was started by Stacy Anderson and Michael Yocco, two individuals who decided to uproot their city life in the Bay Area to pursue a healthier and more balanced life in the beautiful state of Washington. Wanting to transition to a farm life, they found their calling in Whidbey Island, a small island right off the coast of Washington. Here, they have created a small farm, where they actually get several of the ingredients that go into their body care products. From their passion for hemp, they created a product line that preserves and/or heals your skin. Their products can treat skin conditions ranging from basic dry skin to more serious conditions, such as Psoriasis, Eczema, Ichthyosis, Contact Dermatitis, itching skin, and burn care.

THE HEALING HEMP LOTION

I decided to try out the Healing Hemp Lotion, since you can’t ever have too much lotion! Gotta keep your skin nourished and protected, right? The Fay Farm describes the Hemp Lotion as

Free of any harmful chemicals, such as parabens, phthalates, mineral oil and alcohol, our Healing Hemp Lotion feels gentle on the skin and soaks in quickly. It feels like mousse!

And after trying it for a few weeks now, I’d have to agree with its description on how gentle and smooth it feels. My two favorite aspects about this lotion is its texture and smell. The lotion doesn’t feel too oily like many of the conventional products in stores, but rather feels refreshing after you put it on. In terms of smell, it doesn’t have a very strong scent. It has a light herb-like smell that is very pleasant while applying.

The Fay Farm Healing Hemp Lotion Ingredients

In terms of ingredients, The Fay Farms really is selective in using only organic ingredients. As you can see in the picture, it uses a combination of Hemp, Argan, and Grapeseed oil. If you aren’t sure of the nutritional benefits of hemp oil, check out our Hemp Oil page to learn more. In short, hemp oil offers an amazing balance of essential fatty acids, vitamins, and amino acids that makes it one of the best natural oils available.

THE HEALING HEMP SALVE

The Fay Farm describes the Hemp Salve as:

Healing Hemp Salve is our most popular and effective salve for healing those who suffer from eczema, psoriasis, ichthyosis, burns, and bug bites to calm skin down, heal and rejuvenate skin

At first, I was hesitant of getting the hemp salve as I don’t have any major skin conditions. It’s also not winter time so I don’t necessarily have that dry of a skin. But I figured it’ll be useful some way so I just grabbed one. I’ll have to say, I am grateful that I did!!

Unexpectedly, I realized one day that the summer mosquitoes were coming out. I have an energetic puppy, so I have to take her to the dog park every day to let her burn off some of that energy. One day, shortly after I got the hemp salve, I came back and realized I was bit all over my leg! I don’t know if the Texas mosquitoes are just worse, but these bites were itching me like crazy.

The Fay Farm Healing Hemp Salve

So I quickly pulled out the salve and started to apply it on my leg, and wow, wasn’t that a game changer! It was pretty amazing how quickly the salve took effect and started to calm down the irritation.

Even just for bug bites, there’s a couple reasons I would recommend the Healing Hemp Salve over conventional bug bite creams.

  • It uses natural oil and ingredients rather than a chemical ingredient. As the Fay Farm puts it – “Hemp oil is proven to be one of the best healing and cell regenerative oils”
  • It smells 10X better. It has this herb scent that even smells soothing.

THE HEALING HEMP SERUM

Modeled after the Healing Hemp Salve, the Serum is packed with some added benefits. As the Fay Farm puts it:

Hemp Serum contains all the herbs and essential oils found in our Salve, but with the Omega-3 and -9 fatty acids found in Argan oil

The Fay Farm Healing Hemp Serum

Similar to their other products, the Serum is only made with organic materials. But compared to their other two products, I found it harder to find a useful application for the serum. Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s a great product with amazing ingredients. But the hemp serum is a more useful application for those experiencing some type of skin condition, such as “psoriasis on the scalp, eczema on the face, as well as sebborheic dermatitis on the face”.

CONCLUSION

For both those who are looking for natural (and organic) body care products and those who are suffering some type of skin condition, I would recommend you to check out the Fay Farm’s products. They have 20+ products to help you improve and heal your skin. If you have any specific questions regarding their products, reach out to our team at [email protected]
