What’s In My Skincare: Hempseed Oil

Why Hempseed Oil Is The New “Skin Care Hero”?

Those of you who read La Mav's blog know that I am completely obsessed with natural oils and I constantly try new blends. Recently, I've stumbled upon oil that I immediately fell in love with. Not only because it works on all skin types, but because it does wonders for the skin. Today, I'd like to tell you a bit more about Hempseed oil and why it is my new favorite.

Natural SPF 6

According to dermatologists, the leading cause of premature aging is excess exposure to UV rays and/or exposure of unprotected skin to UV rays. We’ve talked a lot about the importance of using sun protection, but we’ve also talked a lot about the potentially harmful chemicals that some skincare companies use to formulate their products. If you feel frustrated because you want both wrinkle-free skin and toxin-free body why not don't you try natural oils? Hempseed oil has SPF 6 and the ability to deflect some of the UV rays without disrupting the absorption of vitamin D.

Speaking of sun protection, do you know that La Mav Minerals have a natural broad-spectrum SPF 15 and are also infused with Vitamin C and Pure Organic Rosehip Oil? If you want a flawless complexion, natural sun protection, and nourishment, these are definitely a must-try

Natural Skin Healer

One of the reasons why Hempseed oil is so popular and widely used in the skincare industry is its unique structure. It resembles the natural skin lipids and is considered to be one of the richest sources of essential fatty acids, making it ideal for nourishing and healing the skin and restoring its hydro-lipid barrier. How hydrated and radiant your skin is, directly depends on maintaining the integrity of its lipid “shield”, so don’t underestimate this fact, if you want to have the luminous complexion and youthful look. Apart from that Hempseed oil is an excellent emollient for dry skin and is believed to assist in cell repair.

Natural Anti-Inflammatory Agent

Another great thing about Hempseed oil is that it is higher in linoleic acid i.e. it’s perfect for acne-prone skin and highly unlikely to clog your pores (which is what people with acne fear most). As we’ve discussed in another article, having acne-prone/oily skin doesn’t mean you have to exclude plant oils from your beauty routine. In fact, oil can benefit your skin in a variety of ways – maintain it hydrated (yes,  oily skin needs hydration just as much as dry skin does), regulate sebum production, and minimize breakouts by acting as an anti-inflammatory agent.

Eczema sufferers and people struggling with rosacea and dermatitis can also turn to Hempseed oil, because of its high content of polyunsaturated fatty acids and its impressive skin restorative properties. The oil reduces redness and inflammations, softens and lubricates, alleviates itchiness, soothes dry skin, and speeds up the healing processes. Note that the results may not be instant, but with regular use, you’ll start seeing a gradual improvement in the overall condition of your skin and trust me – Hempseed oil will become your new favorite “skincare superstar”.
