With marijuana almost legal, cannabis is a hot topic these days, particularly when it comes to wellness. But don’t let the hype push wholesome hemp oil out of the spotlight. This ultra-hydrating oil is a key ingredient in our Microdermabrasion Facial Polish and has health benefits beyond moisturizing.
Hydrate with hemp
Hemp oil (a.k.a. Cannabis sativa seed oil) is rich in omega 3, 6, and 9 fatty acids, making it a great natural moisturizer. Even when added to an exfoliant, like our Microdermabrasion Facial Polish, it adds moisture to the skin and locks it in. And its light, almost dry consistency means that it also tones and tightens skin, minimizing the look of pores and fine lines.
Blemishes be gone
All skin types can benefit from hemp oil, but it works surprisingly well on oil and blemish-prone skin. The oil’s light consistency doesn’t clog pores. It calms skin irritations including pimples, rashes and rough skin patches. It’s also great for dermatitis, eczema, and psoriasis.
Healthy from the inside out
While we love hemp oil as a topical beautifier, it can also be ingested—without psychoactive effects. Add it to rice bowls, smoothies or make a hemp oil salad dressing. Because it’s so high (no pun intended) in omega fatty acids, it’s great for balancing hormones (bye-bye PMS), helps lower cholesterol and can boost immunity by regulating gut health.
