Hemp-The New Trending Skincare Ingredient We Can't Get Enough Of

Staying on top of trending ingredients means you’ve probably heard all about the amazing benefits of vitamin C, retinol and hyaluronic acid, just to name a few. This year, hemp seed oil has earned its place among these ingredients for its incredible nourishing, anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties.

Derived from the matured seeds of the cannabis plant, hemp seed oil includes many vitamins, minerals and fatty acids that make it the perfect addition to your skincare routine. Not only trendy this ingredient is here to offer real benefits.

Deeply Moisturising

The most well known benefit of hemp seed oil is the fact that it’s an emollient, which means it helps leave your skin feeling soft and supple and keeps you moisturised throughout the day. It is just what you need to reduce your dryness and discomfort, perfect as we move closer to winter. This ingredient helps to nourish and rejuvenate dry or tight skin, providing hydration without blocking your pores.

High in Antioxidants

Products high in antioxidants are formulated to combat free radicals which are substances in our environment which damage our cells. Hemp seed oil is one of the ingredients high in antioxidants which helps to protect your skin against these threats by restoring your skins barrier. Antioxidants also help prevent sun damage (but you should always apply sunscreen as well, everyday!).  

Anti-Ageing Powers

Anti-ageing has always been a buzzword in skincare, we know the benefits of collagen and vitamin C can have on early signs of ageing, but did you know hemp seed oil can also be added to that list. Along with its antioxidant properties which help protect your skin from sun damage, hemp seed oil contains acids that are crucial in anti-aging and skin health, softening the skin to decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

A Soothing Anti-inflammatory 

A quality you may not be looking out for in your skincare but is actually very important, is anti-inflammatory properties. Hemp seed oil helps to soothe irritated skin by encouraging the formation of healthy skin cells. This can help those with acne, breakouts and eczema by relieving discomfort and calming inflamed skin.
