Hemp cream for eczema
Eczema is a generic term for a skin condition that can occur anywhere on the body causing dry, red flaky patches of skin. For those who suffer from eczema, their skin barrier does not function as well as it should and microscopic crack will develop on the outer layer of skin which causes skin to become dehydrated and inflamed.
Atopic dermatitis is the one of the more common forms of eczema and it causes skin dryness and itchiness. Hemp cream is very beneficial to use if you suffer from eczema because it contains omega fatty acids which aid in strengthening skin and hydrating it.
Another benefit of hemp cream is that it won’t interfere with the sebaceous glands that produce oil for the skin. Hemp cream will aid in regulating sebum production and rehydrating your skin, bringing it back into balance.
Additionally, hemp seed oil has been known to reduce inflammation, so applying hemp cream topically will be soothing and comforting if you have eczema.
Hemp cream for tattoos
Tattoo aftercare is quite important, but it is also a fact that tattoos can be very painful. Tattoos themselves are essentially an open wound and your body will treat it as such.
This is where hemp creams come in handy. They are useful in helping to regenerate skin and soothe any inflammation or irritation as a result of the tattoo and reduce the pain you are feeling.
Hemp creams can also help to slow the fading of tattoo colour on the skin. By reducing scabbing, this will also mean less itching and that will reduce the amount of ink loss.
Hemp cream for dry skin

Vitamin E also helps to slow down the ageing process and using hemp creams which are packed with many antioxidants helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your skin.
Hemp creams are packed with benefits and they are becoming increasingly popular. With the ever growing market of CBD beauty products, it is important to ensure you purchase your hemp beauty products from established companies.
