W Magazine recently came out with a list of hype-worthy cannabis beauty products.
This only confirms what we've known all along: hemp products do wonders for anyone's beauty regimen. If you've never used a hemp beauty product before, you can start with these five.
You Need to Try These 5 Hemp Products
1. Hemp Seed Oil
You're probably familiar with beauty oils such as rosehip oil, argan oil, and jojoba oil. What you may not know is that hemp seed oil is one of the best beauty oils there is. Aside from locking in moisture in the skin, it can also help treat skin woes such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis, and prevent premature aging.
This is because hemp seed oil is rich in essential fatty acids (EFA's), which are important for optimum skin health. EFA's such as omega-3 and omega-6 promote healthy cell production and help relieve dermatitis.
You can ingest hemp seed oil neat or you can apply it topically. Either way, you're sure to get the beauty benefits of this natural hemp product.
2. Hemp Seed Lotion
Want supple skin? Use one of our favorite hemp products - hemp seed lotion.
Also rich in EFA's, hemp seed lotion boosts your skin's suppleness. It also contains key amino acids and phytonutrients such as vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, D, E, calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, and zinc. Plus, you can use it liberally if you suffer from psoriasis and eczema.
3. Hemp Seed Soap
If you haven't made the switch to natural soaps, you could be overloading your body with harmful ingredients. We're talking about chemical preservatives like parabens, additives like phthalates, and synthetic fragrances which can trigger allergies.
But even among natural soaps, you should know that they're not created equal. A good natural soap is made from high quality locally sourced ingredients and crafted with care. Our soap, for example, is vegetable-based, contains no animal fats, and is hypoallergenic.
It's also biodegradable and certified cruelty-free.
4. Hemp Seed Oil Shampoo and Conditioner
Yes, we know. There's a study that says bald guys are perceived as smart, dominant, and sexy.
And okay, Jason Statham is kinda hot. Rosie Huntington-Whitely seems to dig it. But for our locks, we prefer them to be there, right on top of our heads - preferably healthy and damage-free.
Which is why we use hemp seed oil shampoo and conditioner. They're great, especially for color-treated hair because they can cleanse and moisturize hair and scalp without stripping them of their natural oils. They also don't weigh down hair, unlike popular commercial options that are loaded with sulfates and silicones.
5. Hemp Seed Massage Oil
We're big believers in the saying "a pampered you is a beautiful you." Okay, we just made that up but hear us out. Massages are known to reduce stress, and we all know that stress impacts aging.
Which brings us to hemp seed massage oil. If you want to reap the beauty benefits of massage, you should use a product that does double duty.
You see, hemp seed massage oil doesn't just provide your therapist or partner with enough slip to knead your tired muscles. It can also fight dry skin by sealing in moisture and preventing irritation.
If you don't have someone who can give you a massage, don't worry. You can add hemp seed massage oil to your bath water to enjoy its skincare benefits.
