(NaturalNews) Fran Kerr, author of Clear Skin for Life and How to Heal from Acne Naturally, has been a fan of jojoba oil for years. "I still do love it. I'm a massive fan of it, but I have a new favorite now," she admits. "It's organic hemp seed oil. I am in love with hemp seed oil as a cleanser and moisturizer."

Kerr once had severe acne and is now free of the condition. While Kerr still acknowledges jojoba oil's ability to help keep skin in great condition, she says hemp seed oil is now her preferred choice for several reasons.

Hemp seed oil won't clog pores, plus other benefits

First, she explains that it has a comedogenic rating of 0 (jojoba's is "2"), meaning that it can't clog pores. A comedogenic rating refers to extent in which oil may clog skin. A "0" rating means the product will not clog pores and the highest rating, a "5," means it will likely be extremely problematic for acne-prone skin.

Secondly, oils with a "0" comedogenic rating are also typically high in linoleic acid which is found in the skin's sebum, or naturally-occurring oils. Hemp seed boasts a 57 percent linoleic acid content, responsible for keeping our skin supple. Kerr says that when we use hemp seed oil on our skin, "we're making the sebum much softer and smoother." She also reminds us that sebum "is our friend, not our enemy," discussing the myth that dry skin heals conditions like acne. Kerr also explains that sebum is naturally antibacterial and antifungal.

She simply uses organic hemp seed oil by wetting her face and putting it on like a normal cleanser. "It's my new favorite," Kerr says. "My skin has become softer and the quality has improved as well."

She also enjoys hemp seed oil's green color, known to help offset the red or ruddier complexions those with skin conditions often experience. For this reason, in addition to all of the other benefits, it's common to see hemp seed oil as part of many moisturizers, makeup and skin creams. However, it's always important to make sure the product is organic and does not contain harmful ingredients that could take away from hemp seed oil's effectiveness.

Other people also have been known to enjoy hemp seed oil for its ability to help cure eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis. In fact, the Journal of Dermatological Treatment highlights a study done in Finland which showed that hemp seed oil's ideal balance of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids contributed to dry, itchy skin relief among dermatitis sufferers.
