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!

Jurlique Blemish Cream Testimonial
Check out this Testimonial by natural beauty enthusiast, Naomi

“If I need to treat blemish-prone areas I’ve been reaching for this lately. It is super gentle unlike a lot of blemish treatments and helps to keep trouble areas clear. My chin has been prone to breaking out lately and this stuff is gentle enough to blend into the entire area without causing further irritation and helps keep what could turn into worse blemishes, smaller. Because it is tinted it even helps even skin out a little (though I still go in with a concealer when needed). At night I apply a thicker layer than during the day.”

How to use the Jurlique Blemish Cream

Follow this simple application for clearer cleaner-looking skin!
Simply apply a small amount of Jurlique Blemish Cream twice daily to individual blemishes and blend gently with a clean fingertip. Amazingly, this fantastic skincare product works for all skin types.
You can purchase the Jurlique Blemish Cream by going to our online store or by stopping into our Organic Boutique at 21 W. Gutierrez St.
