Natural beauty has become one of the most active parts of the skincare industry, and it's easy to see why. Study after study shows that all the additives you find in typical drugstore brands can lead to premature aging, cancer, or even skin discoloration after long-term use.

People have started to notice the alarming trends, and that's why companies like GLAUX CHEM have begun to step up and provide new ways to take care of your skin without the use of abrasive additives.

With every new natural skincare product created, more research is put into each ingredient that's included in them. After all, you can never be too careful about it.

One ingredient, in particular, has started to stand out among the rest for its beneficial properties. That ingredient is hemp oil, and it's quickly becoming one of the most popular skincare ingredients you have yet to hear about.

Once you read up a bit about this hot ingredient, you'll understand why hemp oil is your skin's best friend.

For starters, it’s a natural moisturizer.

The most obvious reason why hemp oil is your skin’s best friend its natural moisturizing abilities. People who struggle with dry skin, or regularly find the winter weather to cause breakouts and chapping need to consider using hemp oil as part of their skincare routine.

However, the same could be said about other kinds of pressed oils, including olive oil or carrot oil. You’re probably wondering what makes hemp oil so unique, right? Here’s where it differs from other natural cosmetics ingredients out there.

Hemp oil is non-comedogenic.

One of the biggest complaints people get about drugstore brand skincare is its propensity to clog pores, rather than to clean them. This is because a lot of drugstore skincare brands are comedogenic, which means they contain ingredients that clog pores or trap dirt in your skin if not cleansed properly.

People who have sensitive skin need to make sure their products are non-comedogenic. Pure hemp oil is non-comedogenic, and therefore won’t cause the gross clots that too many drugstore brands do.

It’s been proven to fight inflammation, which in turn can fight acne.

A pimple is an inflammation that occurs underneath your skin, and that means you should be looking for skincare products that fight inflammation. One of the best benefits of hemp oil is that it’s loaded with anti-inflammatory vitamins and lipids—which will translate into pretty, clear skin for those who apply it on their faces.

Having something like hemp oil as part of your skincare routine is crucial if you want to soothe redness and swelling from a bad breakout. Because it’s an anti-inflammatory compound, it’s safe to say that hemp oil is your skin’s best friend if you’re currently suffering from acne.

You might already know that omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are great for your skin, especially if you’re concerned about the effects of free radicals as you age. That’s why so many cosmetics companies are now promoting their use. It’s been scientifically proven that these fatty acids can help you look younger for longer and improve your skin’s elasticity.

However, what you might not realize is that having omegas in your skincare is only half the battle. If you really want to unlock excellent skincare, you need to have the right ratio of omega-3 fatty acids to omega-6 fatty acids. Hemp oil has that ratio, and therefore delivers an even better anti-aging punch.

There is a caveat to this composition, though. To really get that perfect balance, you’re going to have to get skincare that’s done with cold-pressed hemp oil, such as the products from GLAUX CHEM. Heat can destroy fatty acids, which would throw off that ratio.

Pure hemp oil doesn’t irritate your skin with fragrances, but still offers an extremely subtle but freshly natural scent.

Too often, good skincare products are ruined with the inclusion of fragrances. Cosmetic companies add these fragrances because the products they use to make their creams, moisturizers, and cleansers stink.

Fragrance has the habit of irritating sensitive skin and sensitive noses.

Hemp oil doesn’t need a fragrance to smell good. It has a naturally light scent, meaning that skin won’t need to be irritated by heavy perfumes in order to smell great. If you’ve had problems with fragrance in moisturizers before, hemp oil is your skin’s best friend.

Hemp oil is rich in ceramides.

Ceramides are fatty acids that are known for helping cell membranes retain water. In plain English, this means that ceramides lock in moisture and keep your skin and hair shiny. However, ceramides are so much more than just a moisture-locking compound.

Studies have shown that using skincare products that are rich in ceramides improves the quality of both dry and oily skin. With oily skin, ceramides help reduce the amount of excess oil skin produces. In other words, no matter what skin type you have, hemp oil is your skin’s best friend.

You’ll also have a hard time finding an oil that’s richer in Vitamin E.

Once again, this is only true with cold-pressed hemp oil, but it’s still worth pointing out. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that has been known to prevent wrinkles, reverse sun damage, and also give people a nice, healthy golden glow.

Natural hemp oil is super-rich in Vitamin E, and unlike other vitamins, this one can be absorbed through your skin. As a result, adding a little dab of hemp oil into your skincare routine could be what you need to help cut back on wrinkles.

Having hemp oil as part of your skincare routine can prevent psoriasis.

If you have ever dealt with the scaly nightmare known as psoriasis, you know how embarrassing it can be. Psoriasis outbreaks have been linked to a decrease in omega-6 fatty acid intake, which means that you might be able to avoid psoriasis problems if you incorporate something that has lots of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids into your routine.

Hemp oil boasts a wealth of omega-6 fatty acids, which in turn, means that chances are high that you’ll have less outbreaks. Needless to say, hemp oil is your skin’s best friend if you have psoriasis and want to keep things natural.

The same study that showed hemp oil’s benefits for psoriasis sufferers also noted similar results with eczema patients.

Eczema can be extremely difficult to treat, and often ends up spreading if treatment doesn’t fare well. Hemp oil’s natural moisturizing effects, paired with its excellent omega fatty acid ratio makes it a great option for people who are looking to improve their eczema but don’t want to head to a dermatologist for a prescription.

You don’t have to eat the hemp oil to get these skin health benefits.

If you’re worried about having to add hemp oil to your salad dressing or anything like that, don’t be. Hemp oil can be totally diet friendly, and that means that you never have to ingest it if you don’t want to. Lipids, fatty acids, and even ceramides directly absorb through your skin and hair.

Just using a great product that features cold-pressed hemp oil like the Face and Body Moisturizing Oil developed by GLAUX CHEM could give you the glow you want without adding an ounce of oil to your daily diet. All things considered, hemp oil is your skin’s best friend regardless of what issues your skin has been dealing with. Isn’t it time you gave this ingredient a shot?
