    Whose 2022 bingo card included cannabis becoming a superstar skincare ingredient with a cult following? If not, never fear! You're about to get a crash course.

    There's no denying it, hemp is the ingredient to watch in skincare right now. It's both natural AND versatile, helping to relieve a range of skin conditions like acne, dermatitis and psoriasis. Not only that, it's anti-ageing too. Is there anything it can't do?

    Okay, you're listening. But how does it work? Let's start with acne. Hemp seed oil is naturally full of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids, which work side by side to clear acne and blackheads.

    Not only is it anti-inflammatory, but hemp seed oil also stops your sebaceous (read: oil) glands from over-producing, which further stops acne in its tracks. Those rogue zits won't stand a chance.

    Okay, you're on board with the acne prevention (who wouldn't be?), but how does the anti-ageing work? The high level of fatty acids (hello omegas!) work to stimulate collagen production, which aids skin elasticity and keeps you looking youthful.

    You're sold! Luckily, cult skincare brand Hey Bud cottoned onto the benefits this miracle ingredient a few years ago and have been rolling out a gorgeous range of hemp seed oil products ever since. Their latest is a niacinamide + hemp serum, made to brighten your face and your day.

    The best part? Their entire range is 100% cruelty and chemical free.
