Hempseed oil (Hemp oil) is produced by harvesting the seeds and putting them through a cold press, which is the same method you would use in producing Olive and other kinds of cold-pressed oils.
SPOILER ALERT!! Hemp Oil is not Cannabis Oil, which is made from the cannabis plant flowers and leaves.
But what is Hemp oil good for?
Hemp oil has multiple benefits, but we're focusing on its benefits for your skin and why should you incorporate it to your regime.
Give your skin a helping hand.
Hemp oil is perfect for most skin types as it can moisturise without clogging your pores. Dryness can cause your skin to overproduce natural oils, which can lead to acne, hemp oil can help stop that from happening by keeping your skin hydrated.
Calm the fires.
One of the omega-6 fatty acids that hemp oil contains is called gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). This essential fatty acid is one of natures most powerful anti-inflammatory elements, and it can also help stimulate the production of new skin cells, it can also help with skin conditions such as psoriasis while helping keep your skin nourished.
Kick ageing in the butt!!
In addition to moisturising and soothing the skin, hemp oil has some pretty effective anti-ageing properties. Hemp oil can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles as well as prevent signs of ageing from developing.
The linoleic acid and oleic acids found in hemp oil can't be produced by the body but can play a crucial role in skin health and anti-ageing, so they're important nutrients.
