Body Exfoliation and what the professionals at Le Reve Organic Spa & Boutique want you to know
When it comes to body exfoliation nothing is better than a great body polish. Whether you aim to simply feel pampered at your favorite organic spa or to freshen dull skin, the Le Reve Herbal Body Polish is for you! This wonderful body treatment is the perfect treat for the cold winter months. With constant layering to stay warm a great body exfoliation is something we can all benefit from. A great exfoliation allows your skin to breath and when it comes to getting your “exfoliation on” leave it to the professionals at Le Reve Organic Spa & Boutique. Our team of amazing spa technicians are trained to provide a relaxing experience along with the appropriate level of scrub needed to loosen dead skin during this treatment. What this means for you is that your delicate skin is treated to remove dull dead skin but leaves behind heathy new skin.
Body Exfoliation; An Ancient Practic
According to Lydia Sarfatti, author, founder, and CEO of Repêchage “Exfoliation in one form or another has been practiced literally for ages. Ancient Egyptians used abrasive tapes of alabaster, honey and sour milk to loosen cells, then followed with a good scrub of finely ground sand. While methods of exfoliation have become more sophisticated, the goal still remains the same—soft, smooth skin.”
The Herbal Body Polish
Increase Lymphatic Flow
Here at Le eve Organic Spa & Boutique we have mastered the art of the body scrub. Our 30-min body polish begins with a light dry brush treatment to increase lymph flow. The Le Reve dry brush is comprised of all natural boar hair. The boar hair bristles are better than synthetic because they are more gentle on skin. Once the dry brushing portion of this Le Reve body treatment is complete a thorough body polish is provided.
Our body polish is a combination of two types of exfoliants, manual manipulation and granular exfoliation. When some folks use the manual manipulation exfoliation method they make the mistake of over scrubbing skin. This over scrubbing can result in damage and even scar your beautiful skin. This is an easy thing to do especially when using salt scrubs. Along with being more drying, salt scrubs are also naturally rougher on skin. It is for this reason that Le Reve uses a more hydrating almond-based exfoliant. Almonds are naturall rich in oils and can help replenish moisture loss from exfoliation during the process. The exfoliation received in the Le Reve Herbal Body Polish is provided using our biodynamically farmed organic herbal body scrub.
Experience Spa Technicians
The amazing spa technicians at Le Reve are highly trained and experienced in providing the appropriate amount of pressure in the manual manipulation portion of this exfoliation. Their stimulating and invigorating body treatment is sure to leave you feeling renewed and yur skin freshened with a healthy-looking complexion. An additional perk to receiving an amazing body scrub is that your renewed skin functions better as a protective barrier.
Following this wonderful exfoliating experience your skin is in for another treat. We then continue to rehydrate your skin with rich, organic oils. Newly exfoliated skin is more capable of retaining moisture which we can all use during cold, dry winter months in Santa Barbara.
Body Exfoliation Recommendations
Remember that when it comes to exfoliation, leave it to the professionals. Over exfoliation by vigorous scrubbing or chemicals can result in inflammation, mild irritation, and even permanent damage. Receiving frequent body exfoliations not only helps your skin function properly, but it also contributes to amazing-looking skin with a glowing complexion.
The benefits of regular facials are evident. Many of us know that our Le Reve facials are key to great skin care. However, most people do not know that your skin renews itself every 28 days. Why not give your skin a head start by treating yourself to a facial? Some folks choose to wait to get their facial once their skin has become unmanageable and they are experiencing break outs, discoloration, or and increase in fine lines. This is unfortunate. Having worked the front for nearly a decade greeting our regular clients I can tell you that getting a facial regularly helps combat these skin issues. It is much more convenient to allow your esthetician to help you maintain your beautiful skin then to play catch up once it becomes unruly. A great Le Reve facial will leave your skin deeply cleansed, balanced, and moisturized. Receiving proper facials also increases the circulation of blood under your skin, aides in detoxification, and helps increase the renewal of skin cells! Facials are also great for anti-aging! Facials and facial massages will help smooth fine lines as well as assist in collagen production.
Here at Le Reve we offer five different facials to choose from. These facials are designed to address all skin types as well as scheduling needs. So if you are constantly on the go and still in need of stellar skin Le Reve has got you covered.
