Today’s video is about using hemp oil in skin care.
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.
