What is a hemp face mask?
When it comes to beauty care, no body part gets as much attention as your face. Makeup, makeup remover, facial soap, facial moisturizers, and a whole family of face masks are just a few. At its most basic, a beauty facemask is a layer of cream or clay that is applied to the face and left for a period of time long enough for the ingredients to rejuvenate the skin. Hemp face masks add an additional ingredient – hemp oil. It’s the hemp oil that makes hemp face masks unique and it’s the key ingredient that other kinds of facemasks lack.
Face masks are applied using your fingertips to create an even layer of cream or clay over your face and letting it sit for a period of time. Face masks are also popular as a relaxing self-care ritual, and they are very effective. Face masks keep the clay or cream in close contact with your facial skin for a longer amount of time, letting the therapeutic ingredients penetrate deep into the layers quickly. The mask infuses the facial skin with rejuvenating elements while trapping moisture inside the skin to create greater hydration or exfoliation– depending on the purpose of the mask.
There are many reasons to use face masks as part of your beauty care routine. It can be as simple as providing skin cleansing and moisturizing, to treating skin conditions and reducing wrinkles. In any case, beauty care face masks are perhaps the most effective self-care product for providing intense skincare to the sensitive, delicate, and important skin on your face.
What makes hemp face masks different?
So, what is so special about a hemp face mask? It’s the hemp! The hemp species of the cannabis plant contains a botanical oil rich in therapeutic compounds called cannabinoids. Many regular beauty products including face masks use synthetic moisturizers and other artificial ingredients. Although synthetic elements are not always harmful, they can never duplicate the complex and unique ingredients found in hemp seed oil.
Hemp seed oil contains a unique mixture of compounds that are beneficial for the skin. Rich in moisturizers, antioxidants, vitamins, and all 21 known amino acids, hemp is abundant in nutrients that hydrate, protect, and nourish the skin. Hemp oil contains vitamins A and E, the key vitamins for skin health which help the skin retain its strength and elasticity. Omega-6 fatty acids help restore moisture to dry skin when applied topically. Although they come from a plant, the botanical ingredients in hemp seed oil mimic the oils our skin produces on its own, making hemp ideal for sensitive skin irritated by synthetic products.
The hemp seed oil used in hemp face masks and all hemp have had all traces of THC & CBD removed. Using a hemp face mask won’t cause any psychoactive effect, but it will deliver intense hydration, nutrients, and focused therapy to the skin of your face. Hemp seed oil contains anti-inflammatory ingredients that calm irritation and may help reduce swelling, redness, puffy eyes, blemishes, and other conditions caused by irritated and inflamed skin tissue. Hemp seed oil can also help balance the skin’s oil production. Too much oil can mix with dirt and other impurities to cause acne and other conditions. Hemp Face Masks may help to remove excess oil and impurities and restore the oil to proper balance.
Hemp seed oil is perhaps above all else a potent moisturizer. As the skin ages, it loses moisture resulting in lines and wrinkles. The delicate thin skin on the face is exposed to the sun more than other parts of the body and it’s the most susceptible to wrinkles. Hemp seed oil’s amazing ability to restore moisture and rejuvenate the skin of your face makes it the perfect ingredient for facial masks. Finally, hemp Face Masks can work as an emollient which helps to smooth the rough cells on the skin’s surface, leaving your skin with a healthy smooth glow and repairing the damage caused by the elements.
Your Skin, Your Face and Masks
Not all your skin is the same. Skin thickness, sensitivity, and durability vary widely, and the skin on your face is very different than the skin on your hands and feet. Different kinds of skin require different strategies for care. The tough protective skin on your feet has completely different needs than the thin, delicate skin around your eyes. Among all the general body regions, the skin on your face is the thinnest, most sensitive, and most vulnerable to dryness, damage, and exposure to the elements. Plus your face is the most noticeable part of your body. Its role in communication and interacting with others make it the most important area of skin on your body. It requires special attention and should receive the best care.
Like all skin, the skin on your face’s purpose is to create a barrier against hazards in the environment, but unlike the skin on your body, your facial skin is almost always in direct contact with the elements including sunlight, wind, pollutants, and UV rays. The skin on your face is particularly thin, sensitive, and most vulnerable to microscopic damage, moisture loss, and aging. The skin’s fragility and special needs make it the target of by far the most skincare products and skin therapy solutions.
Face masks are recognized as one of the most intense ways to provide focused therapy to the skin of your face. The time involved to use a face mask reflects the extra attention people are willing to spend on making sure their face is as healthy and attractive as possible – and face masks do deliver what they promise, providing extra intense moisturizing, cleansing, exfoliating, and restoration of key nutrients. The extra time necessary for applying a face mask allows the ingredients to penetrate deeper and work longer hydrating and nourishing your skin in one concentrated treatment.
Face masks are a total face care treatment package in one special product that provides the therapy of several different products working at once. They begin by cleansing the skin from impurities, removing dirt, and excess oil. They then detoxify and exfoliate the skin, unclogging pores and removing dead skin cells and other impurities that lurk beneath the top layer of skin. Finally, face masks rejuvenate the skin, restoring moisture and infusing it with any number of nutrients and therapeutic ingredients to balance and achieve a smooth, healthy, and radiant appearance.
Why Hemp is Great for Your Face
So what exactly is inside hemp face masks that make them so good for your skin? Pretty much everything. Regular non-hemp face masks lack hemp oil and use other kinds of moisturizers. Hemp seed oil is essentially a concentration of beneficial compounds like moisturizers, anti-inflammatories, fatty acids, vitamins, antioxidants, and omegas. A drop of hemp seed oil contains multiple skin-nourishing ingredients that combine to offer an amazing array of benefits perfect for the special needs of your face. Here’s a closer look to break down the many beneficial ingredients in hemp face masks.
Moisture is the number one ingredient your skin needs to be healthy, and hemp oil is first and foremost a potent moisturizer. Hemp face masks feature nutrient-rich hemp seed oil that deeply hydrates dry skin to health as few other moisturizers can.
Anti-inflammatory compounds omega-3-6-9 found in hemp seed oil may help to reduce skin irritation, redness, promoting healthy skin at the tissue level.
The botanical compounds in hemp seed oil make hemp face masks especially good for those with sensitive skin. Artificial ingredients can cause irritation because the skin reacts to foreign chemicals that don’t resemble the body’s own oils and tissues. Hemp seed oil is very similar to the oil the skin produces and is less likely to trigger irritation.
Antioxidants, Amino Acids & Omegas
The skin needs specific nutrients to be healthy and most important among these are antioxidants, amino acids, and omegas. Hemp face masks contain an ideal balance of these special compounds which work together to help the skin with nutrients and to function properly.
Hemp oil also contains high levels of Vitamin E, the most important vitamin for skin health. Hemp face masks infuse the skin with vitamins helping it to resist the elements, and skin-damaging pollutants, as well as strengthening and protecting the skin.
As your skin ages, it loses its elasticity which is the primary cause of wrinkles. No product can reverse the skin’s aging process, but Hemp seed oil can smooth the skin’s surface and restore its elasticity, which may help to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Regular face masks often contain artificial ingredients that can be harsh, irritating, and strip away the skin’s natural oils. Hemp seed oil gently cleanses the skin of dirt and impurities without synthetic irritants, making it an ideal cleansing and detoxifying agent for sensitive skin.
