You want to look and feel your best, but you are constantly bombarded with information about the newest treatments or most expensive technology. Do you really need a vampire facial (yes it involves real blood) or microdermabrasion to get soft, glowing skin? If you are like most of our customers, you want a simple, natural solution that doesn’t involve needles and abrasion. This is why we carry hemp oil through our Vigorous Naturals line. Today we’ll take a closer look at the benefits of hemp oil, and some very good reason to put hemp oil on your face.
What is Hemp Oil?
Hemp is a herb. It is often considered in the same family as marijuana or cannabis oil, but there are very important distinctions. In fact, there are also differences between hemp as a plant and hemp as an oil.
Marijuana contains tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). This is what makes you feel high. Hemp has less than 0.3 percent THC, and hemp oil has 0 percent THC. Hemp is used in many practical applications including paper, rope, and clothing. Hemp oil is a cold pressed liquid that is used in cosmetics and food preparation.
Cold pressing is an important part of hemp oil production. Methods that use heat extraction compromise the beneficial properties of the oil. Basically, those benefits are cooked out. Cold extraction preserves the nutrients and minerals that you need when using hemp oil for the face.
Why Should You Put Hemp Oil on Your Face?
- Hemp oil for the face is lightweight
Do you avoid putting oils on your face because you are afraid of clogged pores? With hemp oil, this is not a problem. Hemp oil is very lightweight, providing the deep moisture you need without causing breakouts or leaving behind a greasy film.
- Hemp oil has anti-aging properties
Creams and serums with retinol and collagen can be costly; so, don’t overlook the also powerful anti-aging properties of linoleic and oleic acids. These gentle acids have plumping properties that help with those fine lines. Linoleic and oleic acids are both found in hemp oil.
- Hemp oil soothes irritated skin
A great reason to put hemp oil on your face is to soothe inflamed or irritated skin. While there have been very few clinical trials regarding hemp oil and eczema, some users do report that it was very helpful in managing this condition as well.
- Hemp oil is natural
You care about your health, and that means caring about what you put in and on your body. Unlike many commercial beauty products, hemp oil for the face is natural. It is possible to experience a reaction to any substance, including natural ones like hemp oil, so it is prudent to do a swab test (put a little oil in the crook of your elbow to see if you react) when using any new product for the first time. However, with hemp oil’s natural properties, chances of an adverse reaction are low, so you can feel confident about hemp oil’s long-term use on your skin.
