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!

Eminence Almond and Mineral Treatment

Eminence Almond and Mineral Treatment

Eminence Almond and Mineral TreatmentThe Eminence Almond and Mineral Treatment is an exfoliating mask designed to help provide refined, smoother, and healthier looking skin for days.

The finely crushed almonds in the Eminence Almond & Mineral Treatment gently exfoliate to uncover soft, gorgeous looking skin. Additionally since this fabulous treatment combines both paprika and ground ivy to stimulate the skin resulting in a tingling or hot sensation along with a rosy or red-looking complexion depending on your skin type. Stay calm! This brief coloration is a result of red oxygenated blood flow which is a good thing. This increase in blood flow allows your pores to open and this wonderful product to fully penetrate. Allowing your pores to expand also provides access to congestion found deep within the pore. This rosy glow is actually what allows the properties in this fabulous exfoliant to do so much for your skin. Consequently, once the Almond & Mineral Treatment has been fully removed the rosy appearance will diminish after an hour. The time it takes for the sensation felt by the skin to calm is only 5 – 30 minutes. Following this treatment you will be left with fresh skin, smaller pores, and a more refined and smooth appearance for days!

Eminence Almond and Mineral TreatmentTherefore if you are interested in more refined, smooth, and healthier looking skin for days then the Eminence Almond & Mineral Treatment is the right exfoliant for you. Use of the Couperose-C Serum is recommended after removal of this product.
