“Higher” Skincare with Hemp

Hemp kind of has a bad rap (unless you hail from Colorado, wink wink). Although hemp seeds come from Cannabis Sativa, the oil actually is rich in essential 3-6-9 fatty acids as well as antioxidants. It has properties that help replenish the skin, prevent premature aging, and maintain moisture balance.

So why not channel your inner free spirit with Mad Hippie’s Antioxidant Facial Oil ($24.99/select Whole Foods Markets)? This hydrating oil has been formulated with hemp seed oil, argan oil, goji, and camu camu without the harmful chemicals, parabens, or synthetic oils and fragrances. Made in the USA, it is also vegan with no animal testing!

Mad Hippie Facial Oil comes in a cute little medicine bottle complete with dropper. I chose to use it at night so my clean face could soak in all the goodness and chill vibes, man. Seriously though, the list of oils and extracts in the ingredients are impressive: Sunflower, pomegranate, cranberry, blueberry, strawberry, raspberry, and kiwi to name a few.

Upon using it for a few weeks, I will say I think my skin would benefit from this more in the winter time, as it is an oil, and oils are…well…oily! However, it was super hydrating, and I am sure after getting “baked” in the sun, Mad Hippie Oil is the product I will turn to. To find out more, go to www.madhippie.com.

Peace, love, and hydration!
