Why Hemp Works For Dry Skin

Winter is notorious for wreaking havoc on usually supple, glowy skin.

It can be so difficult to maintain moisture while brisk winds and intense heaters lurk around every corner, ready to strip our skin of its natural goodness.

However, it doesn't mean there aren't ways to win the battle against dry, flaky, cold weather-conditioned skin and banish it for good.

Enter, hemp seed-based skincare, the miracle ingredient everyone's been raving about.

They are packed full of moisturising properties (as they're high in essential fatty acids such as Omega-3 and Omega-6) and, when used correctly, they are the ultimate hydration armour. Model, presenter, writer and Swisse beauty ambassador Jessica Vander Leahy is just one of hemp oil's advocates, applying it before bed for overnight hydration. "When I wake up in the morning I love touching my smooth, velvety cheeks," she told POPSUGAR Australia.

Have you seen that girl's skin? Serious envy. And trust me when I say, she's not the only one out there reaping the benefits of this 'darling' of the skincare world. Below, we take a deeper look into just how effectively hemp-based products work to keep your skin supple and soft all year round.
