Get Pretty Dirty 

Get Pretty Dirty is the name of our skin cleanser. As it cleanses, it does not penetrate the skin’s moisture barrier.

Probiotic Skin Care Is Actually Worth It,  According to Experts- And Here's Why

"Skin probiotics work in a similar way as they do for the digestive system," explains [New York dermatologist] Dr. Francesca Fusco. "They help it to remain in a balanced state." Surface-level, this translates to a complexion that's not too dry nor too oily, and skin that can effectively repel the environmental conditions that cause inflammation In other words, if you want a flawless glow, nurturing your skin flora is the place start From maintaining a healthy bacterial balance in the skin to treating flare-ups and breakouts of all sizes, here experts weigh in on why a probiotic-laced skin-care regimen actually works.

According to Dr. Whitney Bowe, probiotics benefit the skin in three key ways. First, they act as a protective shield by preventing bad microorganisms from provoking an immune reaction. "This creates a more calming environment for the skin," she says. Second, they produce natural antibiotics called antimicrobial peptides that combat bad bacteria. And lastly, they boost the skin's functionality in dealing with external damaging factors including free radicals, sun, and pollution. "All of these benefits help to reduce inflammation," she says. "This helps reduce flare-ups and preventing premature aging."

What The Acid Mantle Is, and Why You Must Absolutely Protect It

"The acid mantle is the protective film of natural oils, amino acids and sweat that covers your skin. Damage it with too much scrubbing or neutralize it with alkaline washes and you’re on your way to barrier problems: inflammation, allergies, and breakouts. Talk of the acid mantle means a lot of talk about pH, which, to the surprise of many a chemistry teacher, is the sort of thing beauty addicts love to discuss online these days. So, while alkaline water may be all the rage for health, you definitely don’t want to use it on your (acidic) face.

Cleansing your skin with anything alkaline interferes with the skin’s ability to repair itself and makes it less elastic, Dr. Bowe said. A high pH also encourages the growth of a bacteria called propionibacterium acnes that, as you may guess from the name, plays a major role in many forms of acne. That face wash that is super-foamy and lathery? There’s a fairly good chance it’s alkaline because the ingredients that give it those qualities are high pH.

“The problem is, people want lather to feel clean,”"

INGREDIENTS:

Grassfed Bison Tallow— Tallow has been used as an effective skincare aid for centuries. It closely resembles the oils in our own skin and contains significant levels of...

  • CLA (conjugated linoleic acid), a type of fat that has been shown to reduce cancer, decrease body fat and improve brain function
  • vitamins A, D, E and K, which aid in collagen synthesis
  • omega-3 fatty acids, stearic acid, and other fats that promote skin health
  • antioxidants

Olive Oil— Olive oil is an antioxidant powerhouse, due to it's high concentration of a molecule called squalene. Thus, it can help prevent or reverse damage from cancer-causing ultraviolet radiation. According to the International Olive Council, olive oil is rich in vitamins A, D, E, and K, which aid in collagen synthesis.


Coconut Oil— Coconut oil is a highly saturated oil that is traditionally made by extracting the oil from raw coconuts or dried coconut kernels. It is rich in medium-chain fatty acids, which are a form of saturated fat. Saturated fats strengthen cell walls and help the skin retain moisture. These medium-chain fatty acids make up about 65% of coconut oil's total composition. 

The fatty acids present in this oil include...

  • lauric acid: 49%
  • myristic acid: 18%
  • caprylic acid: 8%
  • palmitic acid: 8%
  • capric acid: 7%
  • oleic acid: 6%
  • linoleic acid: 2%
  • stearic acid: 2% 

Jojoba Oil— Jojoba oil is lighter than most oils and is easily absorbed by the skin. Studies have shown that this oil provides a substantial long-acting layer of moisture. Extremely nutritious, jojoba oil is full of nutrients like vitamins E and B, antioxidants, and minerals like chromium, copper, and zinc, which can all help to nourish and protect the skin. This oil's hydrating action soothes sunburn and helps reduce the chance of peeling.


Camellia Oil— Known for it's ability to penetrate into the deepest layers of the skin, camellia oil is a versatile oil that can be used on the face, hair, scalp and body.  It's rich in oleic acid, plant collagen, vitamin A (encourages healthy skin production), vitamin D (supports the growth and repair of cells) and vitamin E (helps the skin retain moisture). It’s also rich in omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids. Camellia oil protects your skin from drying out while replenishing vital nutrients. It has outstanding moisture retaining ability and is one of the most rapidly absorbed plant oils.


Argan Oil— Research shows that argan oil can help slow the aging process by reducing inflammation and oxidative stress. This oil has been used as a remedy for treating inflammatory skin conditions for decades- especially in North Africa, where argan trees originate. The oleic and linoleic acids that make up the majority of argan oil’s fat content are vital nutrients for maintaining healthy skin and hair. Argan oil is frequently used to prevent and reduce stretch marks.


Rose Hip Oil— Rich in essential fatty acids, rose hip oil is an excellent option for hydrating dry, itchy skin. Fatty acids help to strengthen cell walls so that they don’t lose water. This oil helps to reduce hyperpigmentation, reduce scars, and protect against sun damage. 

Your body naturally makes less collagen (the building block of skin) as you age.  Rose hip oil has been shown to inhibit the creation of MMP-1, an enzyme that breaks down collagen in the body.

This oil is rich in polyphenols, anthocyanin, and vitamins E, C and A, which aid in cell regeneration, reduce inflammation, and boost overall radiance. With this in mind, rose hip oil may help calm irritation resulting from...


Grapeseed Oil— Free radicals and environmental factors such as sun, wind, and pollution may cause dry skin and discoloration and increase signs of aging. Vitamin E helps battle free radicals, so it may help improve your skin when applied in the form of grape seed oil.

According to the Linus Pauling Institute, omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids are crucial for skin function. The main omega-6 PUFA in grapeseed oil is linolenic acid, which may help reduce inflammation in the skin's middle and outer layers.

Grapeseed oil can help to...

  • moisturize and lighten the skin
  • heal acne
  • tighten pores
  • reduce the appearance of scars
     

Tamanu Oil— Tamanu oil is a greenish oil extracted from the nuts of the calophyllum inophyllum tree, which is native to Southeast Asia. In traditional medicine, people have used extracts from this tree to treat skin disorders and aid wound healing. The results of a 2017 study suggest that a compound called calophyllolide, which is present in extracts of this tree, could have anti-inflammatory and wound-healing effects in mice. A 2012 study also showed that extracts from the leaves of this tree reduced inflammation in cells.

Tamanu oil contains several different types of fatty acids and antibacterial compounds that can contribute to...

  • skin regeneration
  • after-sun protection
  • soothing irritation
  • anti-aging
     

Avocado Oil— Rich in omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins A, D, and E, potassium, lecithin, and many other nutrients, avocado oil can help to moisturize and soothe the skin. It can also help wounds heal more quickly.  One 2013 study revealed that the essential fatty acids and oleic acid in avocado oil can promote collagen synthesis (the process of creating new connective tissue). The essential fatty acids in this oil were also found to help reduce inflammation during healing.


Sweet Almond Oil— Sweet almond oil contains high amounts of vitamin E, an extremely powerful antioxidant. Oxidative stress is a major cause of the deterioration of your skin’s collagen layer. Since collagen keeps your skin looking supple and wrinkle-free, you want to nurture oxidative stress with antioxidants. The fatty acids present in this oil can help your skin retain moisture and heal irritation such as sun exposure, eczema, and rashes. Plus, the vitamin A present can help reduce acne.

Because this oil easily penetrates skin, it’s great for cleaning out the dirt and oil that accumulate in your pores- this process can prevent blackheads and acne from developing.

In other words, sweet almond oil is a natural skincare powerhouse. It is mostly non-comedogenic, which means it’s unlikely to clog your pores.  Proportions of fatty acids found in sweet almond oil:

  • monounsaturated fat: 70%
  • polyunsaturated fat: 20%
  • saturated fat: 10%

Bentonite Clay— Bentonite has the ability to adsorb oils and bacteria by sticking to their molecules or ions. The clay can help remove sebum from the skin's surface and calm inflamed breakouts. It contains natural minerals such as calciummagnesium, and iron, which provide additional benefits.

The Food and Drug Administration have not approved bentonite clay as a sunscreen ingredient. However, one study suggests that the clay can protect the skin from harmful ultraviolet rays.
