Hemp seed oil, regularly referred to as “nature’s most perfectly balanced oil,” can do wonders for your skin.
The hemp seed oil has earned the title of “nature’s most perfectly balanced oil” due to its perfectly balanced ratio (3:1) of Omega 6’s and Omega 3’s. This is important because our body does not naturally produce these essential fatty acids – which is why Omega 3 and Omega 6 are marketed so frequently. Omega 6 and Omega 3 are crucial in keeping our overall health optimal, but they also impact the health of our skin biome.
Hemp Seed Oil VS CBD Oil
Hemp oil is often interchanged or confused with CBD oil. This is simply because they are related to one another and come from the same plant. Although they are related when it comes to planting family, they are different when it comes to their properties.
Some of the key differences include the following:
- CBD is extracted from the stems, flowers, and stalks of the Cannabis Sativa plant
- Hemp Oil is derived from the Cannabis Sativa plant’s seeds
- Hemp Oil is known for its richness in antioxidants, omega fatty acids, and amino acids
- CBD Oil can contain up to 0.3% THC; Hemp Oil does NOT contain any THC
So, what can you get from hemp seed oil? Why is it a good supplement for your skin?
Here are three reasons you should add hemp seed oil into your daily skincare routine.
Anti-inflammation and Hydration
Omega-3 and Omega-6, and their healthy 3:1 ratio in Hemp Seed Oil, assists in reducing inflammation. While this usually applies to the internal organs, it also applies to the largest organ — our skin! The hemp seed oil also contains a rich source of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), a polyunsaturated fatty acid that is also good for overall anti-inflammation.
This is one key reason why the ratio of Omega-3 and Omega-6 is important for your skin. Additionally, Hemp Oil is excellent for skin hydration. It rejuvenates your skin and the continued use will help your skin consistently retain more moisture.
Hemp Oil is Full of Nutrition
Hemp oil is very rich and abundant in healthy skin nutrition. It has a heaping dose of antioxidants including Vitamin E, Carotene, and minerals such as Calcium, Iron, Zinc, and Potassium. You can easily infuse all of those vitamins and minerals into your skin by simply swiping on a Hemp Oil enriched skincare product!
Clearer, Youthful Skin
Acne and atopic dermatitis (AD) both can and often result from chronic inflammation. For this reason, Hemp Oil, which is very rich in anti-inflammatory properties, is great for treating acne. The appearance of acne could be a hint that you have a deficiency in Omega-3s. Since hemp oil is super rich in Omega-3, it is a great way to banish troublesome spots.
If acne erasing isn’t enough, this non-comedogenic oil can even reduce the appearance of premature aging (fine lines and wrinkles). The oil also doubles as a shield against outside environmental factors that speed up the aging process.
