Guide to using hemp oil topically

The easiest way to get started using hemp oil is to use it topically on your skin. All you’ll need to do is massage the oil into any trouble areas to begin seeing moisturizing results. Of course, there are ways to get more creative, such as using hemp oil for steam facials. 

Hemp oil is great for hair, skin, and nails because it’s filled with vitamin E. The vitamin is an antioxidant that gives your skin protection from the sun, reduces wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation.

Vitamin E is only one of the nutrients found in hemp oil, so let’s go into detail about the ways you can use hemp oil topically to keep your skin glowing and help what’s under your skin as well.

Ways to use hemp oil topically:

1. As a moisturizer

The best and easiest way to use hemp oil to benefit your hair, skin, and nails is as a moisturizer. Hemp oil works best as a daily facial moisturizer. However, if you are looking for a seriously relaxing and deep moisturizing session you can have a spa day using hemp oil. Simply give yourself a steam facial and alleviate dry skin, while you relax.

2. An overnight mask

If you are looking for a simple way to get a deep condition you can always use hemp oil overnight. There’s no better way to moisturize trouble areas than with an overnight soak. The best part about hemp oil is that it works anywhere. You can create an overnight mask for your face, your feet, or with wet wraps for eczema. 

3. A hair conditioner

Conditioning your hair is an important step. No matter what kind of shampoo you use, you risk drying your hair out. Hemp oil can work for you as a replacement for any hair conditioner you have. 

Whether you need a hot oil treatment before a wash, a quick conditioner after, or a deep condition you can use hemp oil. 

If you love your conditioner but want to give it a boost, simply add a bit of hemp oil to your conditioning process. When you’re all done rub your scalp and the ends of your hair with hemp oil. There’s a process for you whether you’ve got dry or oily hair, that’s the beauty and versatility of hemp oil.

4. As an eczema and itch reliever

Hemp oil works specifically to relieve skin conditions that are caused by inflammation. Hemp is an anti-inflammatory, antifungal, and antibacterial oil. This means it fights against the bad inflammation caused by eczema that causes the itch. Hemp oil also helps strengthen your skin barrier to reduce flare-ups from recurring. So whether you have flares due to eczema or other skin conditions hemp oil can help soothe the itch. 

5. To strengthen and repair nails and cuticles

The vitamins and minerals in hemp oil are designed to help with dryness. Which means it can help moisturize your cuticles and nail beds. Even more impressive is over time hemp oil can help your nail beds and cuticles grow stronger.

The calcium and omega fatty acids in hemp oil actually help your nails repair themselves and grow long and shiny. All you need to do to use hemp oil to strengthen your nails is moisturize with them daily. 

6. To stop dandruff and relieve scalp psoriasis

Hemp oil works on eczema by rubbing it on the skin, but even harder to reach places can benefit from hemp oil. Gently massaging hemp oil into your scalp can help loosen any dandruff and treat scalp psoriasis. A gentle massage helps get the blood flow going and reduces inflammation caused by psoriasis. 

This is also a case where hemp oil works from the inside and out. Taking hemp oil internally also works to help with inflammation of the scalp.

7. To reduce acne

While spending time searching for the perfect acne meditation, you don’t need to look any further than hemp oil. This one ingredient moisturizer has a low comedogenic rating that will help reduce acne and keep it from coming back.

8. As a makeup remover

Hemp oil can be used as a fast and effective makeup remover. You can clean your face while moisturizing it. Simply place hemp oil on a cotton pad and wipe away makeup. Once you’re done give your face a gentle rinse and you’ll have a clean and moisturized face. 

Have dry skin? You can leave a bit of oil on your face to moisturize after washing off your makeup.

9. As a bath oil

If you need to relax while you take care of your skin, then use hemp oil as a bath oil. Add hemp oil to the bath with your favorite relaxing bath additions and soak. You’ll come out with soft skin that is moisturized and relaxed.

10. As a topical pain reliever

Hemp oil can be used to treat the pain in your joints and body. Unlike CBD oil, which is also used for pain, hemp doesn’t contain any CBD or THC. Once a hemp plant seeds the presence of CBD and THC virtually disappears. However, the hemp plant itself has properties to reduce inflammation and pain. Use hemp oil while massaging the skin to release tension in achy muscles and joints.
