Confused about hemp-based skincare? Here's everything you need to know

Hemp Seed Oil is an ingredient that’s recently gained popularity in the skincare world, and it’s not hard to see why. Not only does it moisturize, but it also helps fight acne, smooths fine lines and wrinkles, calms inflammation and more!

Hemp Seed Oil is the key ingredient in glowing skin. With just the right balance of linoleic and oleic acids, Hemp Seed Oil can nourish, strengthen, hydrate and even heal your skin while helping it retain its natural moisture. 

What is hemp seed oil?

Hemp seed oil is extracted from the hemp seeds of the cannabis sativa plant, unlike CBD, which is extracted from the leaves and flowers. Contrary to popular belief, hemp seed oil does not contain mood-altering THC, and it is one of nature’s greatest gifts for the health of your skin. 

A powerful nutritional supplement, hemp seed oil is also nature’s perfectly balanced oil, with two essential fatty acids that promote glowing skin. Hemp seed oil contains significant amounts of oleic acid and linoleic acid—both omega-6 essential fatty acids. Although not technically an essential fatty acid because our bodies can produce it on its own, oleic acid is known as an essential unsaturated fat because it has several important roles.

Benefits of hemp seed oil for the skin

Oleic acid keeps cell membranes flexible and plays a role in maintaining cell structure. It also helps maintain normal nerve function, supports brain health and keeps heart disease at bay by lowering cholesterol levels. Linoleic acid plays an equally important role in supporting glowing skin by keeping your body’s natural sebum production at optimal levels to keep your skin looking radiant and healthy! 

1. Reduces inflammation and soothes the skin

One of the omega-6 fatty acids in hemp seed oil is gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), which is a powerful anti-inflammatory. It also encourages skin growth and new cell generation.

This can help to calm inflammation and irritation on the skin, including acne and some conditions like atopic dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis, while keeping the skin nourished and moisturised.

2. Deeply moisturises the skin

Hemp seed oil is a dry skin superhero! It rejuvenates and nourishes tight or dry skin and prevents flakiness and itchiness. It also controls oil production to moisturise without clogging your pores. Hemp seed oil restores the healthy skin barrier and helps it to keep moisture, which results in healthy, hydrated, and supple skin.

3. Rejuvenates and strengthens 

Besides moisturising and soothing the skin, hemp seed oil has anti-aging properties. It can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles and prevent signs of aging from developing. It is high in antioxidants, such as vitamin A, C, E, and F and fatty acids, that strengthen the outer layer of the skin so it can preserve water. This keeps skin looking and feeling firmer and reduces the appearance of existing fine lines and wrinkles.

4. Fights free radicals

Hemp seed oil shields your skin and keeps harmful toxins at bay. It repairs the skin barrier and protects against environmental aggressors that damage the skin and cause premature aging, such as sunlight, radiation, pollution, cigarette smoke, and exposure to extreme hot and cold temperatures.

5. Fights acne, blackheads and other skin concerns

By keeping your skin balanced, moisturised and nourished, hemp seed oil helps the skin clear its pores of dirt, oil and old skin cells. The result? Less acne, blackheads, whiteheads and breakouts. Happy skin = happy you.

How do I know if hemp seed oil is good for my skin type?

Hemp oil is perfect for most skin types because it moisturizes your skin without clogging your pores. It helps to prevent dry skin and balance out oily skin, hydrating it and regulating the skin’s oil production. This helps reduce acne that’s caused by excess oil.

Because of its calming effect, hemp seed oil is excellent for sensitive skin, prone to inflammation. 

How often should I use hemp seed oil?

You can apply it once a day or several times throughout your routine. It won’t do any harm to use it often - on the contrary - the more you use it, the healthier your skin will be! If you want to maximize results, hemp-based skincare can work wonders for your skin. 

When can I expect to see results from using hemp-based skincare products?

Hemp seed oil is rich in nutrients, so you will likely see visible results quickly. We recommend applying twice daily for optimal results. Searching for the perfect AM & PM routine? Hemp based skincare may be your leading clue. 

Where can I buy great quality products containing hemp seed oil?

Not all hemp-based skincare products are created equal. Some of them still contain harsh chemicals that can irritate your skin. That’s why we’ve created Hey Bud, an all-natural, Australian hemp skincare brand. We choose ingredients that work with your skin, not against it and are proud to say our products contain no nasties. But don’t trust our words for it, trust thousands of our satisfied customers:

What can I expect when using Hey Bud skincare?

Almost instantly, your skin will feel softer and more hydrated. You may also notice a reduction in redness and a slight fading of dark spots. If you have eczema or psoriasis, Hey Bud skincare has been known to help reduce inflammation associated with these conditions. After the initial purge (getting the stuff out of your pores), acne, scars, blackheads and other blemishes should be reduced and your skin will be clearer, healthier and glowing.
