Step aside, coconut oil. There’s a new darling in the wellness world, and her name is hemp.
Hemp seed oil is already a fast favourite among the health-conscious as a superfood supplement. Cold-pressed from the seeds of the hemp plant, it’s rich in nutrients like vitamins, minerals, and heart-healthy unsaturated fatty acids. No wonder people are rushing to add hemp seed oil to their daily diets.
But did you know that hemp seed oil is also making a splash in beauty and skincare? Here are five reasons why you should add hemp seed oil to your skincare routine:
- It’s super moisturising
- It balances sebum production
- It improves skin conditions
- It fights visible signs of aging
- It protects against environmental damage
What is Hemp Seed Oil?
Before you go rubbing it on your face, you might be wondering: what exactly is hemp seed oil? Extracted from nutritious hemp plant seeds, hemp seed oil is loaded with botanical active ingredients. However, as the hemp plant is a species of cannabis that has only trace amounts of THC, hemp seed oil has no psychoactive properties.
Hemp seed oil should also not be confused with CBD oil, which is extracted from the flowers and stems of the hemp plant. CBD oil isn’t psychoactive either, containing less than 0.3% THC - and MUKOOMI CBD Hemp Oil has no THC content at all. While CBD offers a wide range of benefits for your skin and health, hemp seed oil has its own powerhouse profile. Read on to find out what hemp seed oil can do for you.
What Are the Benefits of Using Hemp Seed Oil on the Skin?
Hemp seed oil comes with a lot of the same skincare benefits as other natural, cold-pressed oils. It provides a luxurious experience when you use it, and it contains omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids that give a healthy glow. But hemp seed oil for skin comes with its own unique properties which you won’t find in any other oil.
Moisturising: For one thing, hemp seed oil is deeply nourishing. It’s an excellent moisturiser thanks to emollients that lock in hydration, allowing it to penetrate into the skin cells. Hemp seed oil feeds your skin with vitamins A, B2, B6, and ultra-moisturising vitamin E.
Balancing: Yet hemp seed oil is not just for dry or dehydrated skin. Hemp seed oil is very close in composition to the natural oils, or sebum, produced by our skin, and therefore balances production of sebum. If you have an oily complexion, hemp seed oil can provide ample moisture while restoring the sebum balance, making it suitable for every skin type.
Skin conditions: Sebum is a sticky substance that tends to clog pores, and combined with dirt and bacteria, is the cause of pimples. Hemp seed oil not only prevents the conditions that allow zits to flourish - it’s also non-comedogenic, meaning it doesn’t clog pores. Unlike coconut and olive oils, hemp seed oil won’t trigger breakouts by blocking up your skin. Plus, it’s an antibacterial agent, so skin conditions are unlikely to thrive
When you use hemp seed oil.
Instead, hemp seed oil can actively work against acne and other skin conditions, as its calming, anti-inflammatory effects are well-documented. Hemp seed oil users can expect better outcomes for inflammation-based conditions like rosacea, dermatitis, psoriasis, and eczema. To soothe flare-ups of acne and redness, dab on a few drops of MUKOOMI CBD Hemp Oil, with the added calming action of CBD. Or use MUKOOMI CBD Skin Serum, which contains hemp seed oil and CBD.
Aging: Of course, the deep moisture of hemp seed oil keeps fine lines and wrinkles at bay. But its inherent calming nature, especially in conjunction with CBD, can lead to more youthful skin than ever. Nourishing fatty acids and gamma-linoleic acid, or GLA, restore vitality to your complexion, while vitamin C boosts the production of collagen.
Environmental damage: Hemp seed oil comes with a hefty dose of antioxidants that neutralise the free radical damage caused by pollution and environmental stressors. These inconveniences of modern life show up on your face in the form of dull, dry, and prematurely aged skin. With a hit of GLA and a multivitamin boost, hemp seed oil is a solution to daily oxidative stress.
How Can I Incorporate Hemp Seed Oil Into My Skincare Routine?
Hemp seed oil can be used in two ways: topical application, and oral ingestion. Ideally, both methods work together, ensuring that your skin is healthy inside and out. Made with 100% organic CBD in pure hemp oil, MUKOOMI CBD Hemp Oil is a safe and easy addition to your daily skincare routine.
And the rich texture of MUKOOMI CBD Skin Serum is specially formulated to nourish skin, all over your face and body. Here are a few quick tips to
fit our popular products into your lifestyle:
- Add a few drops of MUKOOMI CBD Hemp Oil to your morning tea or coffee to perk up your circulation
- At night, place a few drops of MUKOOMI CBD Hemp Oil under your tongue for a peaceful sleep
- Before bedtime, work MUKOOMI CBD Skin Serum into your skin with a jade roller and feel the relaxed sensation melt away any skin-damaging stresses of the day
If you’re trying hemp seed oil for the first time, start with a patch test on the inside of your elbow and leave it for 24 hours. In case of any itching, burning, or adverse reactions, you might have a low tolerance for hemp seed oil.
What Are the Side Effects and Risks?
Skincare superheroes often work because their formulations, although effective, can be harsh. For instance retinol, the form of vitamin A found in many prescription and over-the-counter acne medications, is extremely drying and can even cause birth defects in pregnant women - and yet, it’s a treatment that gives great results.
But seeing “better” skin is no substitute for having healthier, happier skin from within - and all without the fear of chemical burns or raw, irritated skin. Hemp seed oil is a safe and natural alternative that has a lot of benefits, and no harmful side effects. Unlike quick-fix treatments, hemp seed oil works beneath the surface to heal your body, mind, and skin.
Treat your skin to the 100% organic goodness of MUKOOMI CBD Hemp Oil drops, formulated with pure hemp oil, and MUKOOMI CBD Skin Serum. It’s the first step towards a friendship you won’t regret.
