20 Reasons Why You Should Be Using Hemp Skincare
Your skin isn’t just the largest organ in your body, it’s the protective barrier between your body and the outside world. Your skin mostly does a great job protecting you and making you look beautiful. Still, it is also vulnerable to the environment, sun exposure, injury, dryness, and the effects of time. Perhaps no family of self-care products is as large as skin care, attesting to the lengths we will go to protect and beautify our skin. Now, a newcomer has emerged onto the skin care scene, a therapeutic plant whose wellness properties have been known for centuries: Hemp.
Hemp is now the hottest product in the skincare community – but why? Much of it has to do with the oil that comes from the hemp plant. Oil can be extracted from hemp seeds and purified into a botanical oil full of nutrients, moisturizers, and unique compounds that benefit the skin. A multitude of natural plant-based compounds your skin needs to be healthy are found in hemp oil. These natural ingredients combine to produce multiple therapeutic properties for your skin, infusing it with compounds that restore moisture, reduce inflammation, replenish nutrients, and more.
Skincare products made from hemp oil have grown in popularity to fill every niche in the self-care space because of the wide variety of skin-health benefits associated with this unique plant and the unique botanical oil obtained from it. Here are the top 20 reasons why hemp is an amazing supplement for your skin:
20. Hemp skincare products come from a plant
Hemp skincare products use hemp seed oil as the base ingredient. The therapeutic properties of the hemp plant have been known for centuries, but only more recently has the wellness community embraced this natural botanical oil with numerous therapeutic benefits. The human body is well adapted to benefit from plant-based supplements, both internally and externally, and plant-based therapy is seen as a more natural alternative to synthetic supplements. Along with Aloe and other plants, hemp is near the top of the list of therapeutic plants which can benefit the skin. After its purified, hemp seed oil is a mild, non-irritating, plant-based oil that’s biologically similar to your skin’s own natural oils. Your skin absorbs hemp oil readily along with other skin-benefiting ingredients with various therapeutic effects, depending on the type of product.
19. Hemp is a natural moisturizer
Hemp oil is foremost a natural moisturizer that mimics the natural moisture produced by healthy human skin. Moisture is the primary compound needs to stay healthy, soft, and youthful. Hemp seed oil can be mixed with moisturizers to create many kinds of therapeutic skincare products that deeply hydrate the skin and help restore it to health. A whole family of hemp lotions, creams, and balms exist to moisturize and nourish the skin and they all use hemp seed oil as a base ingredient.
18. Hemp is good for dry skin
Due to its high concentration of natural moisturizers, vitamins, and essential fatty acids, hemp oil is an excellent supplement for anyone who suffers from dry skin. Dry skin is among the most common skin conditions and hemp is especially well-suited to hydrate dry skin and replenish lost moisture. The hemp seed oil is often combined with other moisturizers to create rich lotions and skin creams that replenish lost moisture and deeply hydrate dry skin.
15. Hemp is ideal for sensitive skin
The anti-inflammatory properties of skincare products made with hemp are an especially good choice for those with sensitive skin. Artificial ingredients can cause irritation and tissue inflammation because the skin reacts to foreign chemicals that don’t resemble the body’s own oils and tissues. Hemp seed oil is chemically similar to the oil the skin produces and is an ideal choice for all skin types, especially skin types that are sensitive and irritate easily.
16. Hemp is good for your hands and feet
Along with your face, your hands and feet need special attention because they are the likeliest places to suffer from dry skin. Hemp hand and foot creams provide intense hydration and specialized skin therapy to your hands and feet, which are prone to dryness, chapping, and moisture loss. Hemp hand and foot creams deliver extra hydration to your driest areas where you need it most and help to protect and soften the important skin on your hands and feet.
14. Hemp has Antioxidants, Amino Acids & Omegas
The skin needs specific nutrients to be healthy and the most important among these are antioxidants, amino acids, and omegas. Antioxidants slow damage to the skin caused by free radicals – unstable molecules your body produces. Amino acids are vital for functions such as protein synthesis, tissue repair, and nutrient absorption. Omegas are helpful “good” fats your body needs for proper function. Hemp oil-based skincare products contain an ideal balance of antioxidants, amino acids, and the 3 essential omegas your body needs: Omega-6, Omega-3, and Omega-9.
13. Hemp skincare contains Vitamin E
Vitamin E is considered the most important vitamin for skin health and is a supplement in many anti-aging skincare products. Vitamin E is proven to strengthen and protect skin and restore the important elasticity that is lost over time. It is among the most important therapies available when it comes to restoring skin integrity and minimizing the appearance of wrinkles. Hemp skincare products often add supplemental Vitamin E to infuse your skin with this beneficial protecting vitamin with each application, helping to restore lost elasticity.
12. Hemp skincare helps fight wrinkles
Hemp skincare products restore moisture to the skin on the face, keeping it healthy and hydrated, while Vitamin E helps the skin remain firm and restore elasticity. The specialized nutrients in hemp seed oil work together with other ingredients to nourish, moisturize, and firm the skin – slowing elasticity loss. Hemp anti-wrinkle skincare solutions made from hemp seed oil deliver specialized ingredients that specifically help to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes and face.
11. Hemp is gentle and non-irritating
Regular skincare products often contain artificial detergents like soap that strip away skin’s moisture. Hemp seed oil helps cleanse the skin of dirt, bacteria, and impurities without stripping away moisture, making it an ideal cleansing agent for sensitive skin that needs moisture, like the skin on your face. Hemp oil skin supplements designed for cleansing, like face washes and body wash, gently wash away dirt and impurities all while hydrating and nourishing your skin.
9. Hemp is great for your face
Hemp seed oil is an optimal solution for the unique needs of the delicate, sensitive skin on your face. The plant-based compounds like moisturizers, anti-inflammatories, vitamins, and anti-antioxidants are exactly what your face needs to stay healthy. Hemp face-care products offer a wide variety of benefits to your face beyond moisturizing such as gentle cleansing, exfoliating, restoring nutrients, and helping to minimize the appearance of wrinkles.
8. Hemp is good for your lips
Your lips are extremely delicate. Exposure to the sun can leave the skin on your lips chapped and cracked, in desperate need of moisture. Hemp seed oil contains anti-inflammatory compounds which may help to soothe the discomfort of sun-damaged skin or chapped lips, and lip balms made from hemp work hard to restore the moisture the sun and elements take away. CBD lip balm not only delivers the deep moisturizing protection of hemp seed oil but also delivers an infusion of CBD oil.
7. Hemp is good for the skin around your eyes
Hemp oil contains special plant-based compounds that are particularly good for delicate and wrinkle-prone skin around your eyes like moisturizers and vitamin E. These compounds combine in uniquely therapeutic skin-nourishing creams and oils that are ideal for the delicate skin under and around your eyes. The hemp seed oil and other ingredients work to hydrate, nourish, and help minimize the appearance of wrinkles and dark circles under the eyes.
5. Hemp helps protect your skin after the sun
Like the Aloe Vera plant, Hemp contains compounds that moisturize and protect the skin after sun exposure. The inherent moisturizing properties of hemp oil help to soothe dry, sun-exposed skin and rejuvenate sun-damaged skin. Hemp seed oil also contains anti-inflammatory compounds which can help to soothe sunburn and irritation caused by sun exposure. Before you spend a day outdoors, check out the variety of hemp products made for sun protection.
4. Hemp Skincare products are perfect for bath time.
Hemp bath products can take your evening bath or spa routine to a whole new level of sensuous relaxation. Hemp seed oil is full of moisturizers and other skin-nourishing ingredients that cleanse, hydrate, and beautify your skin. When the skin is immersed in warm water, it quickly absorbs the nutrients in hemp seed oil through what’s called transdermal absorption. Hemp bath and body care solutions infuse your skin and your whole body when you apply them during and after a bath. Adding hemp to your nighttime bath routine adds a luxurious new level of relaxation and invigoration with whole body care.
3. Hemp makes excellent clay face masks.
A clay beauty face mask is a layer of clay that is applied to the face and left for a period of time long enough for the ingredients to rejuvenate the skin. Clay face masks made from hemp oil provide skin cleansing and moisturizing and are used generally to keep the skin as healthy as possible, maintain a beautiful complexion and work to help minimize wrinkles. A wide variety of Hemp clay face masks deliver focused skincare to the sensitive, delicate, and important skin on your face – but each type of clay face mask is unique, and different varieties do different things for your skin, depending on your own unique skincare needs.
2. Hemp oil makes for moisturizing antibacterial solutions
The germ-killing power of alcohol combines with the skin moisturizing benefits of hemp seed oil in hemp-based antibacterial solutions. Using purified health-grade alcohol as the active antibacterial ingredient, plus hemp seed oil and other skin-benefitting ingredients, each antibacterial solution is designed to kill harmful bacterial while also restoring moisture to your skin. Uncle Bud’s hemp antibacterial products are formulated with 70% alcohol which kills up to 99.99% of many common harmful germs and bacteria.
