Lets look at a nourishing face masque and a face scrub.
Both these treatments contain Hemp Seed Oil so lets get this straight first of all – Using Hemp seed oil WILL NOT GET YOU HIGH.
It is, however – AMAZING for the skin! Particularly people who suffer from inflammatory symptoms of the skin such as Eczema or Acne. It is a great natural moisturiser, even people with normal skin will see the benefits as it helps lock in that much needed hydration and is full of natural proteins which help improve the overall functioning of the skin.
