Hemp is a natural ingredient which often doesn’t get the recognition it deserves. It has been used in beauty products for many years and helps towards the prevention of many skin conditions, such as acne and eczema.
For some people, scented shampoos and body washes can aggravate the skin and cause breakouts in rashes and spots. Using a soap which contains Hemp oil will help towards the maintenance of healthy skin due to the fatty acids inside Hemp.
As I’ve previously mentioned, the product is sometimes over looked and the majority of people don’t actually know what the health benefits are, when you use hemp products. I thought I would share some of the benefits of using a soap which contains the oil and what it can do for your skin.
As Hemp oil contains fatty acids, it is believed to help towards slowing the process of ageing and the oil is known to be very moisturising to the skin and is one of the best products to help prevent dry skin.
This benefit surprised me the most! Hemp soap has been known to help soothe sunburn. Holiday skincare is important so after you have been in the sun, it is recommended to have a shower and use a Hemp bath soap as it will not aggravate the skin and helps the healing process.
Hemp soap can be used to replace shaving creams and on most occasions will last longer and is also considerably cheaper than most high street brands.
It’s not just for your skin
As well as the amazing benefits is offers your skin, Hemp can also be used on your hair, although if you’re using a bath soap then it’s best to only use it if you have short hair. After I had read about Hemp and how it can be used on both your skin and hair, I looked for a bath soap which could be used on the body and hair, which is when I come across the Multi-purpose Hair & Body Shampoo from Simply Soaps.
The points I’ve mentioned are just some of the benefits Hemp soap in particular, can provide to your skin.
