There can be many different benefits of using products with hemp oil and CBDs, but did you know it also supports the health of your skin? Our partners over at Michigan Herbal Remedies have put together this informative article, detailing the uses and benefits of replacing your skin care products with those rich in hemp oil.

Here’s the article as it was originally published:

Hemp oil is obtained from the seeds and stalks of the hemp plant and is well-known to have many nutritional benefits. Despite a common stigma surrounding cannabis, oil derived from hemp does not contain the ingredient responsible for psychoactivity —THC.

Hemp oil is a great source of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids. Our bodies don’t produce these essential fatty acids by themselves, so we have to get them from our food. Unfortunately, many people’s diets might not contain foods high in omegas 3 and 6.

The nutritional advantages of hemp oil are accompanied by other benefits particularly when used to moisturize and cleanse the skin. Hemp oil for skin is not only soothing and beneficial in many ways…it’s natural. Most drugstore skincare products contain various harmful chemicals that could leave you with irritation or breakouts. Below are some of the ways hemp seed oil can be added to your skincare routine.

Hemp oil is rich in supplements for healthy skin

Hemp oil is rich in vitamin A and vitamin B. It may also have varying amounts of magnesium, potassium, zinc, iron, phosphorus, and calcium. Consuming the oil or using a topical hemp oil can boost your overall health and wellbeing by absorbing these essential vitamins and minerals.

Furthermore, hemp oil is high in antioxidants. Studies suggest these elements can slow down or prevent cell damage; proposing benefits for aging skin.

Hemp oil moisturizer

The lipids or fats in hemp oil are similar to lipids found in the skin. Therefore, the oil is a great protectant and moisturizer for your skin. Adding hemp oil for skin into your daily skincare regimen may potentially increase skin elasticity and bring new life to your tired, dehydrated or dry skin.

Hemp oil for acne and skin rashes

Studies suggest hemp oil has anti-inflammatory effects, notably due to it’s cannabidiol (CBD) content. A CBD-rich hemp balm applied to the skin could be beneficial regarding inflammation, redness of acne, and dryness. Hemp seed oil contains gamma-linolenic acid, needed to control hormone levels and potentially reduce hormone-related acne outbreaks.

Keep your skin hydrated and healthy with absorbent hemp oil that does not block pores or contain harmful chemicals.

Hemp oil is used in lotions and cosmetics

Hemp oil is used in shampoos, lotions, lip balms, and sunscreens among other products for the skin. The oil is added to these products because of its moisturizing properties. Besides, it adds vitamin D to the user’s skin. This allows for the absorption of calcium that is required for smooth, soft skin.

In addition, the product is used as a gentle makeup remover. In case all your makeup does not come off with just one application of the product, you can repeat it. You will get an added advantage of providing moisture to your face as you cleanse it.
