Why hemp seed oil is so great for your skin

Hemp seed oil is taking the beauty world by storm – and for good reason. Here are some of the benefits of hemp seed oil for your skin. Given our skin is our largest organ, it’s important to treat it with care. Hemp seed oil is emerging as a skincare superstar. Here are four reasons why this natural ingredient is worth adding to your skincare routine.

It’s natural and sustainable

Hemp seed oil comes from the hemp plant, which is celebrated for being environmentally friendly and sustainable. Being an all-natural ingredient, hemp seed oil is gentle on both your skin and the planet. It’s also vegetarian and vegan friendly.

It’s antioxidant-rich

Hemp seed oil is full of powerful antioxidants, which are great for your skin. Antioxidants help to neutralise free radicals, which can damage your skin and weaken its elasticity. The high level of antioxidants in hemp seed oil makes it a potent and highly effective skincare product, helping to reduce fine lines and other signs of ageing.

It calms and hydrates the skin

Hemp seed oil feels incredibly soft and nurturing on the skin. It has naturally calming and moisturising properties – must-haves in any good skincare routine – and can be applied on both the face and body. It’s a great natural alternative to synthetic moisturiser.

It may help with some skin conditions

Some studies have shown that hemp seed oil may help to soothe specific skin conditions such as eczema, acne, and psoriasis. This may be thanks to its high levels of omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, which can help to calm inflammation and irritation.
