Hemp Seed Oil DIY for Skin Health

Hemp Seed Oil DIY for Skin Health

Are you struggling with dry, blotchy or itchy skin? Or perhaps, like me, your skin has seen a few too many winters!

Hemp oil is an excellent choice for combating dry skin, particularly during the change of seasons when the skin is prone to dehydration and irritation. Renowned for its rich composition of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, hemp oil replenishes the skin's natural moisture barrier, locking in hydration and restoring suppleness.

Its non-comedogenic properties make it suitable for all skin types, offering relief without clogging pores. Additionally, hemp oil has an impressive array of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds, which help soothe irritation and redness, as well as ahem, help to plump out those pesky wrinkles!
