A growing trend currently in the beauty world is the presence of superfoods as main ingredients in product formulas. Although this may seem unusual, with the rise in natural beauty brands and the deep connection between our diet and physical health (the quality of our skin and hair to be exact), the move towards reaping the benefits of superfoods for cosmetic purposes is in fact the next logical step. After all, wellness and beauty are two ends of the same spectrum to our overall health and happiness. Hemp seed oil is currently on the rise for its amazing hydrating and strengthening properties and it’s really no surprise.
Hemp oil is a derivative of hemp seeds, that can be eaten as is, or on yogurt or salad. High in protein and rich in omegas 3, 6 and 9, hemp seeds are an amazing addition to our diets, so it’s no wonder that when in oil form hemp holds many benefits. Hemp oil, found in moisturizers for the face and body and hair products, acts as a hydrator to help address dry skin patches, skin dehydration and smooth out frizziness, while also strengthening thin and brittle hair thanks to the active protein levels. Add these three amazing hemp-infused products to your beauty arsenal and reap the hydrating and strengthening benefits of hemp oil for your skin, body and hair.
