The Benefits of Hemp Beauty Products
Your skin is the largest organ in your body and it’s important to take care of it, not only for the look of glowing beautiful skin but also for the health and wellness of it. As summer looms ahead it’s the perfect time to start taking a look at your skincare and upping it to be sure you’re ready for those sunny months. This might be a perfect time to try incorporating beneficial hemp products into your routine as you head to the pool or beach.
Hemp-based beauty products have been growing in popularity thanks to not just being gentler on the body and environment but also because they have so many benefits for your skin and hair. So many products can be replaced by one hemp-based product because of its nutrient dense quality. Scientific studies have demonstrated that hemp oil has many amazing benefits for skin types of all kinds and ages.
But hemp being used in beauty products and medicine isn’t a new fad. In fact it has been used around the world for thousands of years. Scientists are only just beginning to understand why. The main reason that hemp oil is so beneficial is because it has an ideal balance of essential fatty acids (omega-3 and omega-6) which aid in the reduction of inflammation and also moisturize the skin. Scientists have also discovered endocannabinoids in hemp that are similar to those produced by our own bodies. These endocannabinoids, which help protect hemp plants from pathogens, can aid our bodies in protecting against pathogens and maintain healthy skin. Since they are similar to what our body naturally produces, our bodies respond well to them.
Hemp-based products have been scarce for the past 50 years because of biases and laws restricting hemp’s sister plant marijuana. Fortunately, this has begun to change as farmers petition the federal government to recognize that hemp is a distinctly different plant and as attitudes and restrictions around marijuana are altering. Today, you can find a wider selection of hemp-based products that will make your summer beauty routine a little easier and leave your skin feeling beautiful and healthy.
