How Hemp Oil Protects Your Skin In The Summer

Posted on July 26, 2018

Hemp oil is great for your skin! We mean, you’ve got skin, right? Of course! We all do. In fact, skin is the largest organ of the human body. And it does double duty. It not only helps keep our insides in, it also helps keep the outside world out. It works for us 24/7/365 days a year for life. It’s constantly replenishing itself.

This summer you can give something back and reward your skin with our line of hemp oil skin care products. Here’s why hemp oil is the perfect gift for your skin this summer.

Hemp Oil For Summertime Skin Care

Summertime is a time for letting it all hang out. Well, maybe not all. But summer is the time when our skin is not only exposed to air; it’s also exposed to sunshine and, hopefully, a lot of water. We may love the feeling of sunshine on our shoulders, but the ultraviolet rays that come with it can be damaging to our skin. Also, exposure to the elements, especially water, can reduce the skin’s natural oils and result in a loss of moisture from the skin.

Hemp seed oil is considered to be a “superfood.” It contains uber-important essential fatty acids, a full array of amino acids, vitamins and minerals, gamma-linoleic acid, and other highly beneficial compounds for your skin. Whether used inside or outside, hemp oil loves skin and skin loves hemp oil.

That the use of hemp seed oil as an ingredient in cosmetics such as skin creams, shampoos, lip balms, salves, and so on has been skyrocketing in recent years is evidence of its effectiveness in keeping skin healthy and young-looking.

Used on the outside, hemp seed oil can supplement your skin’s natural oils, while at the same time helping to prevent moisture loss, which, in turn, helps to keep your skin supple and soft.

Hemp Oil Is Rich In Vitamins

Hemp oil is rich in vitamins A, B, C, D, and E, all of which are great for your skin. Vitamins D and E, in particular, are especially important for keeping skin young and soft, and vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant which can help to prevent long-term damage to your skin from the sun’s ultraviolet rays.

One of the most amazing attributes of hemp seed oil is the fact that it contains the perfect ratio of essential fatty acids, or EFAs, such as Omega-3 and Omega-6 EFAs, which are necessary for good skin health and have been shown to help improve chronic dry skin conditions such as eczema or dermatitis. Hemp seed oil is also rich in gamma-linolenic acid, or GLA, another type of omega-6 fatty acid which has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties.

According to a study conducted in Finland in 2005 published in the Journal of Dermatological Treatment, hemp seed oil can help to alleviate inflammation of the skin known as dermatitis as a direct result of EFAs. This study found that dermatitis patients who made hemp a part of their diet saw a significant reduction in symptoms of dry skin and itching.
