Hemp Oil for Face Wrinkles
Does it work? The age-old question surrounding products that advertise anti-wrinkle and anti-aging benefits. Let’s face it, daily obligations, stress levels, sun exposure, and even poor diet can affect our skin’s healthy glow.
Today, Good Goo is taking a closer look at hemp oil in fighting signs of aging. Can all natural ingredients really work to restore our skin’s youthful appearance? Certainly, it has proven beneficial, and perhaps, a more graceful and pure way to aid our skin’s restoration and rejuvenation. Read about the application of full-spectrum hemp oil for face wrinkles and its anti-aging benefits.
Why Hemp Oil?
To debunk assumptions, hemp oil does not contain tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, the widely controversial psychoactive, mind-altering ingredient. Instead, hemp oil, much like sunflower seed oil or jojoba oil, is produced through the cold-pressed extraction process of a hemp plant. This “miracle oil” has a variety of applications, particularly inline with nutritional and beauty uses. Its appeal is multifaceted.
For example, full-spectrum hemp oil contains key nutrients needed for a healthy diet. It carries a near-perfect balance of omega 3 to omega 6. If that isn’t enough to warrant a heck yes, it also contains iron, vitamin E, and all of the essential amino acids our human body needs to perform optimally.
While you may not be able to get high, hemp oil will ensure your body is in high-performance mode, nonetheless.
Better nutrition for skin care
Better food yields better skin. This is not a marketing trap. Your diet plays an important role in your overall health. More specifically, your skin’s appearance can be affected by what you consume mainly because better foods contain essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients. Sorry to be yet another source telling you to put down those greasy fries. Most dermatologists recommend conscious eating as part of an everyday skin care regimen. We support the cause!
Keeping hydrated, for instance, will help battle over-dryness. In turn, moisture balance can help keep your pores healthy and functioning. Similarly, there are nutrients and vitamins (hint: like those found in hemp oil) that have shown greater impact on skin tone and evenness, plus enhancing its elasticity. Some of the best ingredients that help you maintain perfect complexion and ideal moisture include:
- Vitamin A - Low levels of vitamin A can lead to dry, flaky complexion.
- Vitamin C - although widely known for its immune system support, Vitamin C is also helpful for collagen boosts and skin care
- Vitamin E - can lessen the impact of long exposure to ultraviolet rays from the sun. As we all know, the sun is your skin’s worst enemy!
- Omega 3 Fatty Acids - a healthy fat that nourishes and revives skin complexion
If you missed it, we just listed three components that are found in hemp oil! But aside from better food, what products exist to help boost your skin’s glow?
Hemp oil for face wrinkles
We’ve concluded you can probably eat to stay young, but is there such a thing as bottling your youth? We’ve now arrived at hemp topical products designed for younger-skin-lovin’.
There are a variety of reasons to reap the benefits of full-spectrum hemp. In particular, hemp oil does the following to help fight face wrinkles:
Hydration is your skin’s best friend. As you get older, oil production in the skin depletes and it begins to look drier. By incorporating all natural skin care ingredients, especially essential oils, into your routine, you may be able to visibly reduce the appearance of existing wrinkles, or even prevent new wrinkles from forming.
Does it seem unlikely? Well, one essential oil, hemp, is actually made up of fatty acids that promote beautiful complexion. In fact, fatty acids play a vital role in assisting biological functions, including moisture retention. Hemp oil is made up of omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. Omega 6 is an ideal ingredient for stimulating healthy-looking skin. Further, Omega 6 prevents over-dry skin and it keeps your face fresh, nourished, and moisturized. How? These fatty acids have been proven to retain water and we all know that water is LIFE.
Balances oil production
Hemp oil is the ultimate skin regulator. Not only is it suitable for a variety of skin types—even sensitive skin—but it helps to balance oil production. As you may know, too much oil on the skin can cause clogged pores and irritation, and can ultimately lead to extremely dry skin and even acne.
In terms of wrinkles, one particular component found in hemp oil, Vitamin E, helps to fight off free radicals and, overall, balances your skin’s oil production. Think of free radicals as all of those harmful external elements that we are exposed to every day, such as air pollution and bad bacteria. Some of these things can significantly pile on the years. By balancing oils, your face can better protect itself.
Anti Aging Properties
Finally, hemp oil actually has specific anti-aging properties. You don’t often hear about it, but linoleic acid and oleic acids deserve a serious shoutout! And, yes, they’re found in hemp oil. These fatty acids are not generated, or synthesized by the body independently. Instead, they occur naturally in other essential oils, which you can apply topically.
What do they do? These components help to strengthen skin and provide barriers to the sun’s harmful UV rays. Also, they help to fill in the gaps between dead skin cells, making the skin feel smoother, softer, and more supple. Hemp oil has between 50% and 60% linoleic acid contents, one of the highest of most natural oils—second only to Evening Primrose Oil and Safflower Oil.
Clearing it up
When is the right time to start incorporating anti-aging into your daily routine? Many of us see the label and immediately picture our grandparents. In fact, finding anti-aging products can be used even before you begin to spot those inevitable time stamps. After all, hydrating and nourishing your skin with a gentle ingredient, like hemp oil, has more than just anti-aging and anti face wrinkle benefits. Plus, all natural methods help reduce the likelihood of your skin having an adverse reaction.
