5 Hemp Oil Beauty Tips from Women Who Know
Hemp oil is the latest in skin care and beauty trends. Hemp scrubs, hemp moisturizers, and hemp masks are all the rage. It’s really like a superfood for your skin. And for the sensitive skin on your face, it’s your new secret weapon. Even Jennifer Aniston is raving about the health and beauty benefits of hemp oil.
Jennifer loves it because hemp oil is packed full of the vitamins your skin needs to stay healthy. Vitamin E and B12 work together with your skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Hemp oil will even minimize that scar on your chin that you received when you fell off your bike in kindergarten.
You can safely use hemp oil every day, which is easy with a hemp clarifying mask. Hemp oils contain more essential fatty acids than flaxseed or fish oil, and the fats in this mask will keep your skin looking fit and fresh. You know these fatty acids as omega-3s and omega-6s, and they moisturize skin without clogging pores. That means you can clean and nourish your face at the same time with hemp oil, which will cut your daily beauty routine in half.
Using hemp oil every day is pretty easy. You can add it to your nightly beauty regimen or use it first thing in the morning. These five hemp oil beauty tips come from women who know, and they are here to help you streamline hemp oil into your daily life.
Beauty Tip #1: Hemp Oil Removes Makeup
That’s right! You don’t have to use abrasive soap anymore. Hemp oil removes makeup easily with no scrubbing or microdermabrasion necessary. Even pesky liquid eyeliners are no match for hemp.
Soak a cotton ball in a bit of hemp oil and rub on your face to remove makeup and dirt. Rinse with water and don’t forget to moisturize with a Hemp DMAE Creme to seal in all that healthy stuff you just put into your skin.
Beauty Tip #2: Control Your T-Zone With Hemp Oil
If you’re prone to oily skin, try using hemp oil every night before you go to sleep. Ironically enough, it’s dry skin that makes your skin produce the extra oil. And many women experience dryness and acne in their T-Zone, that area across your forehead and down your nose to your chin.
Using hemp oil every night will moisturize this sensitive area without clogging your pores. It will also reduce that shininess when you wake up because hemp oil regulates your skin’s natural oil production. You’ll notice significantly less shininess after just a few days.
Beauty Tip #3: Don’t Forget Your Feet
Beauty and skincare are not limited to just your face. Beauty involves your whole body, so don’t forget about the two important things that keep you standing tall all day long. Your feet need special attention, and this hemp oil beauty tip comes from Karla Welch, a stylist to the stars. She works with Katy Perry, Sarah Paulson, and countless other beautiful women. Karla recently told The New York Times that she uses hemp lotion to soothe ladies’ feet when they walk the red carpet.
Hemp’s natural anti-inflammatory properties will reduce swelling and redness after you’ve been standing on your feet all day. Massage Diamond Hemp Body Butter into your feet after a long day at work to bring a whole new level of relief to your evening. It will soothe dry skin and stop those cracks that show up on your heels and on the balls of your feet.
Beauty Tip #4: Your Eyes Need Hemp
Young eyes keep your whole face looking young. Hemp oils are rich in omega-6 fatty acids, making it your number one assault weapon against aging. The fatty acids encourage new skin to grow, thus reducing fine lines and crow’s feet.
Gently apply hemp oil around your eyes with your pinkies. The skin around your eyes is very soft and very weak and rough fingers can increase wrinkles. The tips of your pinkies are soft and more similar to the skin on your face than any other finger. Apply hemp oil around the eyes every night to reduce puffiness, wrinkles, and dark circles.
Beauty Tip #5: How To Do A Steam Facial With Hemp Oil
Keep your face fresh and young with a hemp oil steam facial. Our Hemp Antioxidant Facial Serum is a great way to give yourself this amazing facial at home. Gently massage a pea-sized dollop (about a teaspoon) of the serum into your face with an upward, circular motion. A gentle touch is key here because your skin - especially around your eyes - is very sensitive.
You don’t want to speed up the aging process with rough hands, so be careful. Follow up by resting a damp, hot washcloth on your face for about five minutes.
This steam facial will give your face that healthy shine while the hemp oil maintains your skin’s elasticity, but it comes with a perk - stress relief! Even just these quick five minutes to yourself can lift your mood and reduce your stress. It’s a great way to relax before bed while kickstarting your skincare regimen.
