Skin + Whole Health

Love your skin.

Skin is a storyteller. Through the singular sense of touch, we feel the warmth of the summer sun, the sting of a scraped knee, or the rush of a lover’s kiss. Skin crawls with excitement, gets goosebumps in the cold and serves as a social canvas for a piercing or tattoo, birthmark or scar, lip color or eye shadow. Our skin is always growing and changing – a reflection of our age, ancestry and our current health.   

This is why we take Skin + Whole Health so seriously. And it’s why we encourage everyone to find the life formula that is best – not for the masses or for most…but for you. Singular, individual and deserving. 

MEET OUR RESIDENT EXPERTS

Together we’re devoted to a whole health regimen, including mind, body & spirit. You can expect transparency, new standards and a dedication to the individual. Because skin is our storyteller and whole health is at the core of personal beauty.

Identify your skin type

Here are two easy ways to determine your skin type at home:

The bare-faced method

  1. Use a mild cleanser to wash your face. Pat skin dry and leave it bare; no moisturizer.
  2. After 60 minutes, examine your cheeks, chin, nose and forehead for any shine.

Is it tight when you smile? Your skin is likely dry. What if it’s shiny on your nose and forehead, but not elsewhere? That’s combination skin.

If you are shiny all over, cheeks included, your skin is probably oily.

If you’re one of the lucky ones whose skin feels natural and comfortable after an hour, you probably have normal skin.

The blotting sheet method

  1. Use a mild cleanser to wash your face. Pat skin dry and leave it bare; no moisturizer.
  2. After 60 minutes, gently pat a single sheet of blotting paper on each area of your face: forehead, nose, chin and cheeks. Hold the paper up to the light after blotting each area.

If the sheet picked up little to no oil from any area of your face, you most likely have dry skin.

If the forehead, nose and chin sheets show just a touch of moisture, your skin is normal.

A mix of dry or oily areas means you have combination skin.

And of course, if all blotting papers are fairly oily, you have oily skin.

Dry Skin

Dry skin can look and feel tight. It can also feel rough and become itchy and/or flaky.

Exfoliating with a gentle, non-abrasive formula can help remove the top layer of dead skin and allow for better absorption of serums and other treatments, while also promoting healthy skin cell turnover. Staying hydrated is key. Look for a moisturizer with hyaluronic acid (also called sodium hyaluronate), glycerin and marine actives like algae for their ability to attract water and deliver it directly to skin cells. Additional emollients like squalane and other oils help smooth and hydrate your skin evenly and effectively.

Normal Skin

If you’ve got normal skin, your skincare concerns are usually pretty minimal.

You may still find your T-zone (forehead, chin and nose) a bit oily, but overall, your skin is balanced and not prone to sensitivity.

To help maintain healthy skin, you can use a gentle cleanser, hydrate with a daily moisturizer and protect from environmental damage with a broad-spectrum daily sunscreen.

Read More

Combination Skin

People with combination skin often experience an oily T-zone and dry cheeks.

This makes it important to find a routine that can address both for uniformity in the way your skin looks and feels. Gentle exfoliators can keep the oily T-zone in check, while moisturizers with a gel-like texture absorb quickly and are less likely to cause breakouts. Start with a small amount and increase as needed to avoid over-moisturizing.

Read More

Oily Skin

Excess oil can leave pores congested and clogged, but we can help you with that.

The good news about more moisture in your skin means it’s less prone to wrinkles. To prevent too much oil and sebum from building up, it’s smart to use a daily enzymatic exfoliator that promotes cell turnover. A gentle exfoliator is a great way to balance the tone and texture of your skin.

Sensitive Skin

We get it—managing sensitive skin is a challenge.

To make it easier to determine which products are causing irritation, introduce only one new formula at a time. Before using a new product, patch test it on your inner forearm. If the skin on your arm doesn’t react, move on to trying the product behind one of your ears. If that goes well, then try it on your face.

Still feeling sensitive? Look for labels that call out non-irritating ingredients, and focus on finding products free of parabens, synthetic fragrances, mineral oil, sulfate detergents, phthalates, essential oils, DEA, and TEA – as many of these ingredients can result in redness and itchiness.

Skin Conditions

For the most part, each of us is born into a skin condition and over the course of our lives, we can experience a range of concerns. Acne, dehydration and hyperpigmentation are a few of the skin conditions that can vary for individuals at different times in their lives. Additional factors like climate, pollution, medication and stress impact your skin as well – and luckily there are a number of ingredients and skincare routines to help you stay fresh-faced and smiling.

Wrinkles

As skin ages, it loses volume and density, which leads to the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and changes in pigmentation.

There are a few ways you can combat wrinkles on your own – by limiting sun exposure, avoiding poor air quality and eliminating the use of tobacco. You can also look for products with algae, ginger and sea fennel extracts, as they stop the breakdown of collagen. Peptides are great too, because they reinforce the natural proteins found in your skin.

Hyperpigmentation

Having an uneven skin tone is a common complaint from people of all skin types.

Dark spots and patches that appear on the face, neck and hands are often caused by hormones and exposure to the sun. And while sun protection can help, it is not 100 percent effective in avoiding dark spots and melasma. When SPF isn’t enough, licorice extract and Vitamin C can be helpful in removing skin pigmentation and melasma.

Read More

Redness

What causes flushed skin? Harsh weather, a poor diet and stress are all factors in skin redness.

Redness can be prevented by wearing sunscreen (even on cloudy days), eating a balanced diet and getting a good night’s sleep. To treat existing redness, try products with soothing, anti-irritation ingredients like arnica and peony.

Read More

Dehydration

Dehydration is different than a perpetually dry skin type.

Drinking lots of water, avoiding diuretics like alcohol and caffeine, and finding products with ingredients like glycerin and ureae can help re-hydrate your skin.

Read More

Enlarged Pores

There are two types of pores. The first, called sebum, releases the body’s natural oils, while the other releases sweat.

When oils and dead skin mix together inside a pore, it causes a clog, which creates the appearance of larger pores. Sun damage can also contribute to misshapen, enlarged pores, so it’s important to wear SPF daily. Extracts like witch hazel, wintergreen, calendula and rosemary leaf are also effective ingredients that help reduce excess oil and remove dead skin cells to reduce the appearance of pores.

Whole Health Benefits of CBD + CBG

Pure, high quality cannabinoids have powerful benefits on and inside your body – and they are especially effective when combined. Topically, CBD and CBG offer relief from acne, oiliness, dryness, eczema, psoriasis, itchy skin, irritation, inflammation, pain and soreness. They also help heal cuts, burns and reduce scarring. When ingested, these cannabinoids reduce stress and anxiety and promote sleep.

New to CBD or CBG?

Cannabinoids are naturally occurring compounds found in the Cannabis sativa plant.

  • CBD (Cannabidiol) is only 1 of over 120 cannabinoids
    found in the hemp plant.
  • CBG (Cannabigerol) is another cannabinoid found in the
    hemp plant, but is far more rare (precious, expensive)
    than CBD. When combined, CBG energetically boosts the
    already amazing effects of CBD.
  • THC or “Tetrahydrocannabinol” is the cannabinoid known
    for its psychoactive effects.

When carefully isolated, both CBD & CBG are completely free of THC – meaning they won’t get you “high”. No THC – no high – no psychoactive effects.

CBD and CBG can help create balance in human tissues, like the heart, as well as in digestive, endocrine, immune, nervous and reproductive systems, by regulating the production of different hormones and proteins. The system that regulates this process is called the endocannabinoid system (did you know you had one? We all do!). This system connects to receptors found throughout your body and skin, which affect multiple processes including your mood, appetite, memory and pain sensation.

Big 3 of CBD – Know What You’re Buying

There is little regulation in the industry. Much of the CBD on the shelves is imported from a country with low or varying standards. Often products don’t contain enough of the cannabinoid to be effective and even quality plants can suffer poor extraction methods, be diluted or simply used too sparingly to yield proper efficacy. We encourage you to know the answers to these three questions:

Where Is It From?

Untamed Humans: Our CBD and CBG is sourced from one of the original CBD farms in Colorado.

Is The Process Certified?

Untamed Humans: Our high-quality, high-purity CBD and CBG is carefully extracted from organic hemp using a steel press. This slow, small batch, old-school process maintains the full nutritional and anti-inflammatory value of the ingredient much better than all of the modern, efficient techniques.
All of our products are certified by an objective and fully independent 3rd party. Their certification process confirms our CBD and CBG are:

• Manufactured with a stringent process that
results in proven purity
• Sourced in the USA, not synthesized
• Pesticide-Free
• THC-Free

What Amounts Are Used?

Untamed Humans: We use between 500mg and 1000mg of CBD or CBG in each product offering the cannabinoid. And there is absolutely no THC. While the FDA requires .03% THC or less, we keep it pure and simple – 0% THC.

Microbiome – The Third Brain

Did you know that we each have what science refers to as ‘three brains’ – our head brain, our heart brain and our microbiome brain, which is a giant community of microorganisms located in our gut and all over our body. These three brains work together through a series of pathways. For example, if we ingest a cannabinoid like CBD, signals will go to the brain to help reduce stress, pain, anxiety and promote better sleep. Microbiome earned the title “The Third Brain” because of its significant influence on our behavior, intellectual functions and our immune system.

Balance is Key

We know the human body contains an upward of 40 trillion microorganisms. To put things into perspective, 2-6 lbs of your body weight is microorganisms, living in and on your body. These microorganisms are made up of microbes such as bacteria, fungi and viruses. We often associate these terms with risks to human health, but most of these microbes are not bad. The majority are mutualistic, meaning they have a give-and-take relationship with their host. Like everything in life, balance is important. We must promote the beneficial microbes to maintain a happy balance in the ecosystem.

SKIN MICROBIOME – A LIVING SHIELD

As science continues, we’ve learned that most chronic disease and skin related conditions can be traced back to an imbalance in our gut. At the same time, our skin is our largest and greatest detoxifying organ. Microbiome research is the future of product development and treatment of the skin. By reducing negative microorganisms on the skin's surface and promoting positive ones, we can dramatically improve many skin conditions, maintain healthy skin and promote overall individual health.

Again, it’s Personal

Your microbiome is like your fingerprint; unique to you and only you! Proper balance for your specific microbiome makeup is critical regardless of whether it be for acne or wrinkles, sleep or anxiety. A solution that is good for your balance doesn’t necessarily mean it will be good for others. Affecting the composition of microorganisms in and on your body directly contributes to your whole health ecosystem. One that we understand is individual and in service of all the parts that make you an Untamed Human.
