We all want the glow of beautiful, healthy skin especially this time of year. Along with pulling out our breezy summer wardrobe, many of us will be minimizing our beauty routine and adopting a more natural look during these warm sunny months. This might be a perfect time to try incorporating beneficial hemp products into your routine as you head to the pool or beach.
Hemp-based beauty products are growing in popularity because, along with being gentler and environmentally friendly, they have many benefits for healthy skin and hair. You can replace multiple beauty products with one hemp-based product because of the rich nutrient quality of hemp oil.
Scientific studies have demonstrated that hemp oil:
- Alleviates Dryness
- Reduces & Prevents Acne
- Protects Against Visible Aging
- Reduces Inflammation
- Can Heal Eczema, Psoriasis, Rashes & Scar Tissue
It is no wonder that hemp has been used in natural beauty products and medicine around the world for thousands of years. Scientists are only just beginning to understand why. The main reason that hemp oil is so beneficial is because it has an ideal balance of essential fatty acids (omega-3 and omega-6) which aid in the reduction of inflammation and also moisturize the skin. Scientists have also discovered endocannabinoids in hemp that are similar to those produced by our own bodies. These endocannabinoids, which help protect hemp plants from pathogens, can aid our bodies in protecting against pathogens and maintain healthy skin. Since they are similar to what our body naturally produces, our bodies respond well to them.
Hemp-based products have been scarce for the past 50 years because of biases and laws restricting hemp’s sister plant marijuana. Fortunately, this has begun to change as farmers petition the federal government to recognize that hemp is a distinctly different plant and as attitudes and restrictions around marijuana are altering. Today, you can find a wider selection of hemp-based products that will make your summer beauty routine a little easier and leave your skin feeling beautiful and healthy.
