Hemp Oil Benefits for Skin
One extremely prized possession of the Indian sub-continent is the magical science of Ayurveda. While Western civilization was pushing heavily on the increased use of pharmaceutical medicines, India and bordering countries cherished the benefits of herbs and herbal products. Though many times medicines/drugs are essential; however, most of the time, they can be avoided. Regular use of medicines not only compromises your natural immune system but also develops a toxic drug dependency. On the other hand, frequent use of herbs strengthens your immune system, and they have absolutely no side effects.
Today in this blog, we will discuss the various benefits of Hemp and Hemp-derived oil.
What is Hemp seed oil?
Hemp oil is processed using the seeds of the hemp plant and is proven to contain many health benefits. It is derived from an industrial variety of the Cannabis plant and does not contain any of the effects which a popular variant Marijuana is known for.
(So, it will not induce the same effects as smoking up weed!)
What are the general benefits of Hemp oil?
Hemp oil is abundant in Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, which are essential to maintain healthy cells and a strong nervous system. If you are a fitness enthusiast, a fashion model, or into mental wellness, you must be aware of the advantages of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. Pharma stores are filled with supplements and capsules which provide you the necessary intake of Omega fatty acids. These are prescribed very frequently to growing kids, elders, and adults with poor health conditions. These essential fatty acids have to be either consumed (food) or taken otherwise (supplements, hemp oil) because the body doesn't produce them naturally.
- Hemp Oil is a perfect source of these nutritional benefits and can be massaged to cleanse and moisturize the skin.
- It adds a natural protective layer to the skin, which prevents rashes, provides relief for acne, and sunburn.

Benefits of Hemp Seed Oil for Your Skin’s Health
There are countless benefits of natural hemp seed oil. Today we will discuss five of them.
1. A Perfect Organic Moisturizer
Hemp oil contains natural fats or lipids, which are similar to the ones produced by the human body naturally. Due to this unique similarity, our body adapts immediately to hemp oil and provides instant results. Hemp seed oil creates a protective layer on the skin and keeps it moisturized the entire day. It is perfect for both oily and dry skin, and if you apply it before going to bed and early morning - you will experience a glowing complexion.
2. Dietary Benefits
The hemp seed oil has excellent nutritional benefits. It maintains the required level of blood thinness, preventing varicose veins on the skin. It also acts as a natural hormone regulator. It helps teenagers who are experiencing puberty, women who are experiencing issues with the menstrual cycle, and anyone experiencing hormone-related acne outbreaks.
3. Skin Rashes and Acne Can Be Treated
People with a deficiency of omega fatty acids are more prone to eczema and dry or itchy skin. Hemp oil works as an excellent treatment for eczema and dry, itchy skin. Hemp oil is an organic product with absolutely zero side effects and is perfect for treating skin irritations. It gets absorbed by the skin immediately and doesn't block pores.
4. Rich in Vitamins for Healthy Skin
Hemp oil has essential vitamins and is highly rich in minerals. It contains Vitamin A and E in abundance and also contains trace amounts of necessary minerals like magnesium, potassium, zinc, iron, calcium, and phosphorus. Ingesting hemp oil enhances cardiovascular health and blood flow to the skin. (You can easily add it to any food item after it has been prepared. You can also use it as a dressing for your salad.)
- It also contains antioxidants, and regular usage will slow down aging.
(No need to purchase expensive cosmetics. You can enjoy similar effects and better results without any side effects with Hemp seed oil.)
5. Used in Cosmetics and Lotions
Many companies producing organic cosmetic products use Hemp seed oil as a base in their lotions, shampoos, conditioners, sunscreens, lip balms, and other skin related products. Hemp oil adds vitamin D to the skin and allows the absorption of calcium that is essential for soft, smooth skin.
It also acts as a gentle makeup remover. Not only does it help you remove makeup, but it also provides the necessary moisture and heals/prepares your skin for another stressful day.
