My Favorite Hemp Derived Skincare Products & Why You Should Give Them A Try

It is no secret to anyone that Hemp-based beauty products are growing in popularity and for many good reasons. Let’s start with the fact that Hemp derived beauty products are natural, gentle and environmentally friendly products that provide amazing benefits when it comes to the health of your skin and hair. Add to that the fact that scientific studies have demonstrated with success that hemp oil helps to alleviate dryness, reduce and prevent acne, protect against the signs of visible aging, reduce inflammation and even heal Eczema, Psoriasis, scar tissue and skin rashes.

The fact of the matter is that hemp has been used in natural beauty products and medicines around the world for thousands of years and scientists are just now beginning to understand why due to more and more research being conducted. The biggest reason that hemp oil is so beneficial is due to the fact that it has an ideal balance of essential fatty acids (omega-3 and omega-6) which assist in the reduction of inflammation and also the moisturization of the skin. Scientists have also found endocannabinoids in hemp that are very much like those produced by our own bodies. These endocannabinoids help to aid our bodies in protecting against pathogens as well as assist in maintaining healthy beautiful skin. Since these endocannabinoids are similar to what our own bodies naturally produce, our bodies respond well to them which is amazing in itself.

Some people enjoy hemp beauty products so much, that they even decide to grow their own marijuana plants to make their own natural moisturizers, scrubs, and body butter at home. Are you considering growing marijuana plants? A good understanding of the different strains of the marijuana plant is essential. For example, this gorilla cookies strain will have different growing requirements than a sunset sherbet variety for example.

Hemp derived beauty products have been very hard to find for the past 50 years because of laws restricting hemp’s sister plant marijuana but fortunately that is changing now that the federal government recognizes that hemp is a different plant entirely in addition to the fact that attitudes and restrictions around marijuana are altering. Today you can find a large selection of hemp-based products that will make your year round beauty routine a lot easier plus leave your skin feeling healthy and beautiful. Below you will find the hemp derived beauty products that I love and use and that everyone should check out for themselves:

Hemp Moisturizers

Hemp moisturizers are a completely natural alternative to traditional moisturizers on the market today. Many moisturizers contain potentially harmful products in them including petroleum, mineral oil and sodium lauryl sulfate, among others and are the reason many moisturizers can actually irritate the skin. A good hemp moisturizer will not only be completely natural but will also harness the awesome skin benefits that only hemp can provide. Check out a few of my favorite benefits below….

 

 

Effective Skin Oil Balancing: While many of the mainstream, readily available moisturizers and lotions can actually cause an imbalance of your skin oils, especially if you suffer from any sort of skin disorders, hemp products are extremely effective at restoring your skin oil levels to a natural balance. This is crucial to maintaining healthy skin that not only looks vibrant and fresh, but that is also truly healthier.

Deep Moisturizing: Hemp is a fabulous product that gets deep within your pores and offers an extensive level of moisturization that other ingredients just can’t match. Many ordinary creams and lotions merely moisturize your skin on the surface that, at their best can last for 12 hours. Hemp, on the other hand, gets deep within your skin, resulting in amazing long term benefits that last well into the future.

Anti-aging Properties: One of my favorite long term benefits of hemp that is extremely noticeable, is when it comes to hemps anti-aging properties. Not only does hemp deeply moisturize and rejuvenate your skin, but hemp also works to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles which results in a natural and much younger look and feel.

Hemp Scrubs

Hemp scrubs are anti-aging natural scrubs for the body that reveal visibly younger skin with regular use. Depending on the hemp scrub that you choose, it can be packed full of natural ingredients like organic shea butters, organic cocoa butters, organic coconut oils, nourishing hemp, Turbinando sugar as well as many other natural anti aging ingredients. The results provide optimal hydration and exfoliation that reveals healthier, more youthful, hydrated and naturally glowing skin that anyone can love. Hemp scrubs are one of my favorite things for sure as they do an amazing job of removing dead and dry skin cells all while preparing my skin for moisturization.

Hemp Body Butter

Hemp Body Butters are another must have beauty product that I absolutely love as they nourish deep down to provide superior hydration. Hemp body butter delivers uniform and quality hydration that lasts and plays a significant role in restoring healthy skin without interfering with the skins functions. Hemp body butters are also multi-purpose as they can be used to moisturize your body and face as well as eliminate the need for multiple skincare products which is always a plus. It can be used both morning and night after you cleanse and tone and can even be used as a stretch mark cream for pregnant and expecting mothers. You simply apply to your belly throughout your pregnancy and especially in the second and third trimesters for the best hydration available.

So what do you think of my favorite hemp beauty products listed above? I have to stress that hemp based beauty products are simply awesome and have allowed me to cut the time and money spent on my beauty routine in half as the products serve multiple uses all while providing me with amazing results that last. I love my hemp moisturizers, scrubs and body butters as they take care of my skincare needs all while being 100% natural and containing none of the potentially harmful products in them that can cause irritation to the skin. I also love that hemp beauty products provide real results that last as they moisturize deep down resulting in long term moisturization. It is also important to keep in mind that the popularity of hemp derived products is ever growing as more and more people are learning about all of hemp oils amazing benefits in addition to the amazing research being done by scientists. There are many more hemp based products available that I have yet to try such as hemp shampoos and conditioners, lip balms, shaving soaps, dry oil body sprays, hair pomades, body washes and even hemp derived cosmetics. I will definitely be checking some of those out as well, especially because I have had such amazing success with hemp moisturizers, scrubs and body butters.
