Why does hempseed oil work so well at healing dry skin, especially eczema and psoriasis?
Hempseed oil has many amazing, and unique properties that make it the absolute best oil for healing even the worst dry skin. The fats, or lipids, found in hempseed oil are similar to those found in the skin. It is rich in antioxidants, vitamin E, as well as omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. It hydrates the skin and brings more oxygen to it, which makes it a good treatment for eczema and dry, itchy skin.
Also, because psoriasis is caused by a deficiency of omega-6 fatty acid, products made with hempseed oil are perfect moisturizers! It can also bring down the redness and irritation of acne outbreaks, which is why I use it in my Facial Balm.
Over time, it can help eliminate acne by keeping the skin healthy and hydrated. It absorbs quickly and doesn't block the pores but will actually help the skin balance oil production. Because hempseed oil is a natural product with no known side effects, it is ideal for treating skin irritations.
I hope this gives you a little insight into why I use hempseed oil as a main ingredient in many of my products. You can find my "Piper Dee Naturals" line of all-natural body products at the Simpson Spring Market, or on Etsy at www.PiperDeeNaturals.com.
