However, we can’t forget our ‘outsides’. Hemp-enhanced body care products are on the rise. People are becoming more conscious about what they put on their skin and hair.
The skin is the largest organ on the human body. It is also the ‘gateway’ for absorption of nutrients, as well as chemicals that may be put on the body. The skin sees a lot of rough treatment – harsh soaps, chemicals, abrasives, and environmental exposure (wind, ice, snow, cold, dry heat, sun).
Hemp-enhanced face and body lotions are wonderful. They moisturize the skin; the hemp oil does not sit on top of the skin, but penetrates it, leaving skin soft, smooth, and non-greasy. The Omega 6 and 3 fatty acids in hempseed oil aid in cellular repair and also protect from UV radiation. Omega fatty acids also help replenish the fats lost in the skin, reducing scaliness and dryness, AND helping the skin to look younger and fresher. (I use a hempseed oil-based lotion several times a day, with no greasy feel left on my hands and skin.)
Let’s not forget the hair. Shampoos and conditioners can be quite harsh to the hair. Some are detergents and strip the hair of it’s natural oils. Hemp oil-based shampoo and conditioner leaves hear feeling clean, fresh, silky smooth, and looking and feeling shiny and healthy. The Omega 3 fatty acids in hempseed oil-based hair products penetrate the scalp and moisturize from the inside, reducing dry, flaky skin and adding nutrients to the hair follicles.
I personally use Versativa’s Juice Citrus Flower hemp-enhanced shampoo and conditioner. My scalp is moisturized; my hair feels fresh and clean, and looks healthy and full of body.
Whether you are wanting to treat your hair, or body, or both to some exceptional care, try hempseed oil-based products. Your skin and hair will thank you.
