Hemp products – be it hemp lotions, cream, soaps or shampoos – are still a relatively well kept secret for looking after your skin and hair. They haven’t yet hit the mainstream, which to be honest, is probably a good thing. It means you can keep the benefits of hemp all to yourself!
With that being said, what exactly are the appropriate hemp uses? How exactly is hemp good for us? And why is it better than the thousands of other “wonder ingredients” that are said to be good for our skin and hair?
Use As A Moisturizer: There are literally thousands of moisturizing creams and lotions available for your skin, so how is hemp better? Well, the problem with a lot of moisturizers is that they merely “coat” your skin, remaining on the skins surface. Hemp, on the other hand, so closely matches our skins lipids that it is able to penetrate our cells and lubricate the surface between them. Hemp has the perfect ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 based on what our cells needs, so you’re basically giving your skin exactly what it needs. So hemp is simply a more effective moisturizer, thus giving you better results.
Use To Combat Aging: Again, much like regular moisturizers, there are many products that claim to be the perfect anti-aging solution, so how is hemp better? Well, to be honest, a lot of “anti-aging” creams claim to be anti-aging because they simply moisturize your skin, and a well nourished skin is more resilient to the signs of aging. But they don’t exactly reverse the signs of aging. However, not only does hemp work as an effective moisturizer, but it actually works to firm your skin and provide it with the necessary oils that together combine to get rid of lines, sagging and wrinkly skin, thus actually “reversing” the signs of aging and making you look younger.
Use To Repair Your Hair: Another one of the hemp uses that you can directly benefit from through the use of hemp products, is it’s properties for repairing and caring for your hair. Much in the same way as regular moisturizers simply “coat” your skin with the oils instead of actually getting deep into your pores, most shampoos are the same in how they treat you hair. On the other hand, hemp actually works to nourish your hair and scalp deeply, leaving it not only appearing healthier, but literally resulting in healthier hair.
As you can see, these are some obvious hemp uses that you can immediately begin to benefit from. These are actually just some of the ways hemp can benefit our body, there are also many other uses for hemp that can greatly benefit our health. Overall, it’s a pretty potent ingredient and you’d be silly not to use it’s properties to greatly enhance your well-being. Most people are still yet to cotton on to the various benefits of hemp, but you can be sure it won’t be long before the mass media gets a hold of it. Get in quick, and be ahead of the game!
