It’s one of the great contradictions of this time of year–as the world sparkles with new-fallen snow and festive decorations– our own personal glow may diminish due to holiday stress, dry, cold, weather and doing too much as we pack in holiday parties, family gatherings, and the hustle of the season.
What about starting a new tradition this holiday season by putting your health first with quick and easy beauty hacks to amp up your personal glow from the inside out?
Tips For Glowing Skin
One of our favorite books on the subject is The Little Book of Healthy Beauty: Simple Daily Habits to Get You Glowing by Pina LoGiudice, ND, LAc (Tarcher Perigee 2016). This gem of a book is packed with natural and timeless wisdom about how to get your glow on and keep your skin in top shape regardless of outside stressors.
Sleep is your best defense against dull skin and fine lines. Creating a nighttime beauty ritual with Moon Mother Hemp will help prime your skin for the benefits of restful sleep. As Pina LoGiudice writes, the foundation for a good night’s sleep includes the following:
1. Aim for a bedtime between 10:30-11pm every night. Consistent sleep times train our brains and bodies to fall asleep and stay asleep through the night. By creating a nightly routine, moisturizing your skin, and removing electronics and other distractions from the bedroom, you set the stage for calm.
2. Try a self hug. While lying in bed, bend the elbow of one arm, lay that arm across your chest, resting your hand on your opposite shoulder. Then wrap your other arm around your waist. This nightly “self hug” creates a gentle binding sensation like swaddling an infant and provides an instant feeling of comfort and wellbeing.
3. Adopt a bedtime mantra. Often the hardest part of falling asleep is quieting the mind. Try to displace the chatter in your head with one or two words such as “sleep now.” Breathe in and say to yourself “sleeeeeep” breathe out and say to yourself “noooow” and repeat the words while breathing until you drift off. This repetition and breathing exercise will quiet the brain and will prime you for sleep.
4. Finally incorporate Hemp Oil into your nightly beauty routine. The skin is most responsive to care as you sleep when your derma is at rest and most able to absorb what you put on it. Using Hemp Oil can relieve a range of skin issues including dehydration, redness and inflammation. Moon Mother Hemp CBD serums deliver powerful natural antioxidants to protect your skin’s natural barrier while providing intense hydration to rejuvenate and calm your skin. With each application, you’ll be feeding your skin everything that it needs in order to maintain its youthfulness, elasticity, cleanliness and hydration levels.
Our Skincare Products
Herbalist formulated, all of our topical skincare and body care applications begin with the highest quality certified organic herbs, botanical butters and oils and our full spectrum hemp extract. Each product is carefully formulated by our certified clinical herbalist founder for a synergistic effect between the herbs, hemp and essential oils. You can rest at night knowing that you are giving your body 100% organic TLC from Moon Mother Hemp.
Glow Skin Serum
Glow Skin Serum is a daily moisturizer that is suitable for all skin types. Our all-natural, organic hemp seed oil for skin contains a nourishing and balancing combination of herbs infused in jojoba oil, argan oil, rose and, of course, our full spectrum hemp extract. It can truly transform your skin and give it the nourishment and care it deserves. Our CBD serum harnesses the natural power of Mother Nature to soothe, moisturize and replenish your skin. Apply 1-2 pumps of CBD serum directly to cleansed, dry skin in a circular motion, or pump the serum into your hands and lightly press the product into the skin. It’s best to apply this formula daily to maintain good skin care health overall.
Writer and Editor, Claire Hannum shared, “Natural ingredients are a mainstay of all Moon Mother products, but they especially shine in the brand’s Glow Skin Serum. The serum makes moisturizing magic by combining full spectrum hemp extract with argan oil, rose, and jojoba oil. Hemp oil has a soothing, anti-inflammatory effect on skin, so it’s no surprise that this serum made a much-needed difference in managing my post-winter dry skin. My daily moisturizer alone wasn’t cutting it, so I started adding Glow Skin Serum to my evening routine a few weeks ago. After just a few days, I was waking up to softer, happier skin.” (Beautytap.com)
Renew Eye Serum
Renew your eyes and reduce smile lines and puffiness with our anti-aging Renew Eye Serum. Our proprietary seed blend is restorative, rejuvenate and will enliven and plump up tired looking skin. Hemp Eye Serum is full of antioxidants and helps promote collagen production while protecting, nourishing and revitalizing your skin. Roll this magic elixir under your eye area before bed and let the antioxidants turn back the aging clock while you sleep. Keep one by your side at work and combat the effects of blue light and eye strain with a swipe of the eye roller throughout the day, or apply before getting ready for a day on the slopes to combat cold windy weather.
Nourish CBD and Manuka Honey Mask
Our Nourish CBD and Manuka Honey Mask is a reparative, nourishing, and mineral-rich mask that will leave skin hydrated and glowing. Its anti-aging properties make skin appear younger with every application. Use it as a face mask by spreading a thin layer over your face. Leave for 20 minutes before rinsing. Use as a daily cleanser to brighten skin.

Aftering trying the full Moon Mother Hemp skincare regimen, Avigale Lagrass, former Director of Wellness at Nalu Kinetic Spa shared, “I am currently using the Glow Skin Serum and CBD Renew Eye Serum every day and have seen a difference with how smooth and hydrated my skin and my redness in my skin has calmed down so much from my eczema. The Nourish CBD & Manuka Mask is such a great treat for my skin, skin felt hydrated, nourished and my skin looked amazing. I would definitely recommend Moon Mother Hemp to anyone who wants to use a CBD line with good quality ingredients.”
