Skincare is evolving and how! From using yoghurt and honey to fix our skin woes, to relying on trendy ingredients like retinoid and vitamin C to give us the skin of our dreams, we’ve come a long way. Thanks to the increased awareness around skincare ingredients, we’re more mindful when picking products. Today, we’re taking you through another trendy ingredient that’s gaining popularity for all the right reasons — hemp seed oil. Not to be mistaken with hemp oil, which is a blanket term for all oils that come from hemp (including CBD) — hemp seed oil is purely made out of hemp seeds. Read on to know all about its benefits for skin.
- Reduces inflammation
- Hydrates the skin
- Prevents premature ageing
- Reduces stress
- Prevents free radical damage
- Simple Booster Serum - 10% hemp seed oil + B3
If you’re dealing with inflammatory conditions like acne, psoriasis, cradle cap, or atopic dermatitis, hemp seed oil can help. It decreases skin irritation and promotes the growth of healthy skin cells. And because it’s composed of anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and oil-reducing properties, it also helps prevent acne. And since it is non-comedogenic, it won’t clog your pores either.
Hydrates the skin
If your skin is chapped, flaky, and dry, you need to surrender to this moisturising superhero. Hemp seed oil is a humectant, which means it attracts moisture to the skin. Plus, it’s also rich in omega acids 3, 6 and 9, all of which repair the skin barrier and form a protective layer on the surface to retain moisture within.
Prevents premature ageing
Hemp seed oil contains antioxidants vitamin A, C, E, F, and fatty acids that strengthen the skin barrier, allowing it to retain moisture. This in turn helps the skin stay firm and also reduces visible signs of ageing like fine lines and wrinkles.
Laced with a natural fragrance, hemp seed oil calms your senses and relieves you of everyday stress and anxiety. Now, more than ever, we need to invest in ourselves in the most authentic way.
Prevents free radical damage
Hemp seed oil protects your skin from environmental aggressors like radiation, sunlight, and pollution. All of these factors intensify already-existing issues like acne, dull the skin, and increase dryness, and with winters around the corner, it’s best to start using a product containing this ingredient as soon as possible. And we’ve got just the suggestion for you.
