Used In Cosmetic Lotions
One thing to note is that many conditioners, sunscreens, shampoos, and lotions already contain hemp seed oil. Oftentimes, it will be added for its moisturizing properties in addition to vitamin D that helps to create smooth, soft skin. In some cases, it’s even used as a gentle way to remove makeup, as an alternative to other more harsh options on the market. And while you’re at it, you’re also getting the benefit of moisturizing your skin.
As a Dietary Supplement
Hemp seed oil isn’t just effective as a topical treatment; using it as a nutritional supplement is also great for the skin. Made from the only edible seed which contains gamma-linolenic acid, hemp seed oil is great at regulating hormone levels and reducing the incidence of hormone-related acne outbreaks.
Since hemp oil is known to thin the blood and help with cardiovascular health, it can help prevent unsightly varicose veins under the skin.
How To Use Hemp Seed Oil
If you’d like to use hemp seed oil directly on your skin, be sure to wash your hands first. Take about a teaspoon of hemp oil and lightly rub it into your skin. Once it’s rubbed in, take a washcloth and wash it with warm water. Ring it out and lay it over your face for a minute or two. This will help exfoliate the skin and make the hemp oil more effective.
If your goal is to control acne, you may find it best to use hemp seed oil as a dietary supplement. The gamma-linolenic acid in hemp oil will help prevent pores from clogging by preventing sebum, a waxy substance that clogs pores, from hardening.
If you want to apply hemp seed oil directly to areas of the skin with acne, you should see reduced redness and faster healing due to its anti-inflammatory properties. The vitamin A and E will help with recovery.
Another way to consume hemp seed oil is through food. Hemp oil has a pretty nutty flavor to it, so it’s best to keep it cold and mix it with other flavorful foods. Hemp oil goes great in salad dressings like vinaigrettes.
