Skin Health – Exfoliation

Skin Health – Exfoliation

Le Reve would like to bring to light the importance of exfoliating The skin is the largest organ of our body. It functions to encapsulate and protect your inner organs, to regulate body temperature, to maintain hydration, and more! The skin acts as a barrier for environmental aggressors, and variations in pressures, and temperature. It helps to regulate body temperature, circulation, and fluid. On top of all of this it contains a network of nerve cells that detect and relay important information such as temperature or chemical changes in the environment as well as injury. With all the vital functions your skin provides to you it is important to take good care if it.

The Importance of Exfoliating

Regular exfoliation not only helps to remove dead skin and impurities, but also stimulates collagen. Collagen is what provides our skin strength, elasticity, and the ability to replace dead skin cells. In short, exfoliation is an important tool in helping our skin to function properly and efficiently as well as keep it looking its best! When it comes to exfoliation Le Reve provides several methods to choose from.

Body Exfoliates

There are several wonderful options to choose from for exfoliating the body such as lotions, polishes, sponges, brushes, sisal soap sacks, Clarisonic, and mitts or gloves.
Light Exfoliation
If you tend to exfoliate more regularly or on a daily basis then you are most likely to benefit from a few of our lighter methods such as the Eminence Naseberry Body Lotion, sea sponges or brushes. The Eminence Naseberry Body Lotion is a natural glycol which means that it lightly exfoliates allowing for the moisturizing properties to fully penetrate the skin. Our Sea Sponges can be used with any body cleanser or simply with warm water to help lightly lift and remove impurities and dead skin. The Body Brush is designed to use dry. We offer them in both a short brush  and long detachable body brush  Dead skin and impurities are removed with light gentle strokes applied to the leg, arm, back, stomach or hip area. Applying the gentle strokes on the arms and legs towards the direction of the heart also helps in lymphatic flow. This is another great way to detoxify the body!
Medium to Heavy Exfoliation
If you exfoliate once a week or less than you would do well by using our body polish, sissal glove, mitt, wash cloths, or soap sacks. These options are better designed to remove build up of impurities and dead skin. The Jurlique Herbal Body Polish provides antioxidants to fortify and walnut shell to gently lift away dead skin. Sissal or Rami Washcloths are great for using with cleanser or simply warm water to help remove dead skin and build up from day-to-day environmental aggressors. Whats even better yet is that these materials are naturally antimicrobial so they wear well over time! Sissal Mitt or Glove provide a little more exfoliation than the washcloths in that they are firmer and because of this remove even more dead skin. This method is great for removing seasonal buildup and may leave skin slightly pink after application. Ever since I was a little girl our family would use these wonderful options to slough off dead skin and stimulate collagen when we would go to the steambaths together. Many cultures use dry brushing and sissal treatments to detoxify their skin and help to lower the development of cellulite.

Facial Exfoliation

There are more gentle exfoliates to choose from for the face, neck and decolette area. Some of these methods include dermafoliants, peels, treatments, brushes and cleansers. The Eminence Strawberry Dermafoliant provides lactic acid to help eat away at dead skin like little Packmen. The Yam and Pumpkin Enzyme Peel is a 5% mask designed to remove a good amount of impurities and dead skin just by leaving it on for 5 to 10 minutes!  Pumpkin super packed with skin brightening factors to help improve complexion. Natural Facial Brush like the dry brush or Clarisonic help to exfoliate and stimulate increasing collagen production. When used properly natural brushes also help to removed toxins improving skin condition and overall appearance. Learn more about exfoliation and which type is best for your skin’s needs by speaking with a Le Reve esthetician. We are here 7 days a week and are happy to help!

See you at the spa!

My Clear Skin Probiotic Masque Experience

The Clear Skin Probiotic Masque from Eminence is a great face mask for acne prone skin. I have recently been struggling with acne and when I last got a facial, the esthetician used the Clear Skin Probiotic Masque and it left my face feeling cool and clean for the rest of the day. I loved the way it kept my skin feeling clear and refreshed. I bought the mask and use it once a week and have already begun to see improvement in my skin. I cant ever stop touching my skin!

Happy St. Patricks Day

Happy St Patricks Day - le reve spaHappy St. Patricks Day

Happy St Patricks Day from your friends at Le Reve Organic Spa & Boutique in Santa Barbara California! Check out this post from spa coordinator Daniel for more on the Stone Crop line available in our organic boutique and shop Le Reve for the greenest skin care in town!

I could bore you with the history of this holiday (I learned all about it in my History of the UK course last year,) but instead I figured I would do something we’ll all enjoy and tell you a bit about one of the greenest lines we carry here at Le Reve. And by green I mean green, not eco-friendly, even though all of our products are eco-friendly.

The Stone Crop Line

The Stone-Crop line, from  Eminence , contains a body lotion, a gel wash, a serum, a moisturizer, a masque, and a hydrating mist. Each of these products is incredibly versatile and works on almost all skin types! Sensitive skin loves Stone Crop because it feels cool going onto the skin, and yet oily and rough skin reaps the benefits as well. Stone Crop itself has been used for ages as a healing tool on burns and injuries, and its work in skincare is just as effective!

The Stone Crop Body Lotion is a hydrating lotion for freckled, sun damaged, or sensitive skin types. It gently lightens pigmentation and age spots while at the same time prevents new occurrences. Years of sun damage can be erased to bring back skin that os soft, supple, and looks radiantly replenished.

The Stone Crop Gel Wash is a delicate gel cleanser for the face and eyes. It deeply cleanses the skin without any drying effects, and even the most irritable skin types will be calmed and hydrated. The wash is especially effective for those with an uneven skin tone and blemishes.

The Stone Crop Serum creates high-potency hydration for uneven skin types. Your skin will look years younger after one application and will greatly benefit from the antioxidants.

Remember to check out our March Spa Specials on serums before purchasing your Eminence Stone Crop Serum
 

The Stone Crop Whip Moisturizer does exactly what stone crop has been used for for centuries: healing! The moisturizer heals the skin, reduces the appearance of irritation, and gently clarifies the skin’s appearance. It also increass the resistance of skin and stops signs of aging.

The Stone Crop Masque excels in increasing the moisture content and health of all skin types – it will leave your skin looking radiant and youthful. It helps to refresh and rejuvenate fatigued and sensitive skin, all the while lightening pigmentation and fading blemishes. It also delivers nutrients and a high amount of moisture to increase the water content of the skin.

The Stone Crop Hydrating Mist, a soothing toner, will hydrate and refresh your skin. It will heal any irritation and reduce any unappealing pigmentation. It’s great for use as part of a daily maintenance routine and for use with sun defense minerals.

 
We carry all of these products and then some here at le Reve and we look forward to hearing from you!
Our number is (805) 564-2977 and we’re here until 7 P.M. every day!
