if you want to calm your skin, you need some HEMP
What we wouldn't do for calm and quiet skin during iso....oh wait, we totally know how to fix it, all it takes is a little hemp!
Superhero status goes to...
Ahhh, gone were the days where we thought staying inside for a lengthy period of time without having to wear makeup or interact with people would leave us with blemish-free, healthy and glowin' looking skin.
Instead, we've now resigned ourselves to the fact that the pimple predators have come out in full force, happy to wreak havoc, wielding their weapons of irritation and redness wherever they please no matter how much we try to calm them and quieten them down.
Just when you thought all hope was lost, we're here to tell you it isn't so you can spend less time worrying and more time naked. Introducing our very own cape-wearing, skin-saving ingredient, Hemp!
So What Is It?
Let's get into all the nudie rudie details here. Yes, hemp is another word for the cannabis sativa plant and no it's not illegal and no it won't get you high. Any questions?
Okay okay, we'll explain. Hemp is a plant that has served a variety of purposes for thousands and thousands of years, from being used as fibre and a source of protein to being made into oils or powders.
In short, hemp can be found in a whole heap of stuff including paper, clothing, food, building materials or most importantly for the feature of this blog, in beauty products such as face masks and body oils.
What Does It Do?
We've got two words for you: deep hydration. Hemp seed oil acts as a major hydrator as it's high in omega acids 3, 6 and 9, all of which help to hydrate your skin when it's all thirsty and begging for you to nourish it.
Along with giving your skin the nutrients it deserves, hemp oil also pulls in moisture, acting as a protective barrier so your skin won't lose its natural oils and become sad & dry again.
After all, the fun police called and they want their boring back.
Why You'll Love It
Who doesn't love soft & supple skin? That's right, no one. Not only will hemp seed oil make your skin look less like you've just spent 7 hours straight in front of the tv (in other words, as dull and boring as the documentary you just fell asleep to), but it will also make your acne less aggravated and your skin less itchy and irritated.
Here to tell your skin to sit the f**k down and behave, hemp has also been known to march alongside you in your fight against inflammation, acting to help flared & irritated skin settle. Soothing the skin 'till it's smooth and clean, hemp is your go-to skincare wingman, protecting your skin at every turn against unwanted attention and making sure everyone (and by everyone we mean your housemates or furry doggo) sees how brilliantly you can shine.
