Hydroquinone Alternative for dark spots - Bright Skin Licorice Booster - Le Reve SpaHydroquinone Alternative For Dark Spots

Le Reve offers a Hydroquinone Alternative For Dark Spots Finally, theres a Hydroquinone alternative for dark spots at Le Reve Organic Spa & Boutique. Hydroquinone is a toxic chemical that is prescribed to help treat dark spots.

What cause dark spots

Malasma or dark spots can be caused by a few different things such as pregnancy, skin trauma, birth control pills or other hormone replacement therapy. Malasma occurs when the melanocyte cells located in the bottom epidermis layer of skin produce melanin. Melanin is what makes dark spots. Hydroquinone works by inhibiting the production of melanin. So what could be wrong with a product that prohibits the production of melanin. Why is there a need for a hydroquinone alternative for dark spots? Well, how about it is toxic for one.

Dangers of Hydroquinone

If you have gone to the dermatologist for malasma, the darker pigmentation of the skin then you have probably heard about Hydroquinone. Hydroquinone is a skin-bleaching agent used for lightening malasma. This chemical does come with some drawbacks which would probably make most avoid it if they only knew. What are those drawbacks? Firstly, this chemical is known to be cytotoxic (i.e. cell-killing). It is because it causes permanently damage your pigment cells that it must be prescribed by a physician when in amounts larger than 2%. Secondly, this cream has shown in some studies to cause the skin to turn a bluish or blackish color. This occurrence is called exogenous ochronosis¹.

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!
