Hemp oil is considered a ‘superfood’ for many reasons. But today, we’ll talk about why it’s fantastic for your largest organ- your skin.
You see, when you apply natural treatments to your skin, you allow for maximum absorption and benefits. This is because what you put on your skin goes into your bloodstream and organs.
Here’s how hemp seed oil can benefit your skin:
1. It treats skin rashes and acne
Psoriasis is caused by a deficiency of omega-6 fatty acid. Because hemp oil has high levels of omega-6, it is an effective treatment. Also, it brings more oxygen to the skin and hydrates it. Thus, making it a great treatment for dry, itchy skin and eczema. Hemp oil also reduces the redness and irritation of acne outbreaks. This is because it absorbs quickly and doesn’t block the pores. It helps the skin balance oil production.
