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 Serumcreates high-potency hydration for uneven skin types. Your skin will look years younger after one application and will greatly benefit from the antioxidants.

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 at Le Reve Organic Spa & Boutique would like to share with you how to combat the visible signs of aging.
Signs Of Aging
In order to tell you how to combat the visible signs of aging it is important to first define some common signs of aging. As we age our skin begins to show it. Some signs of aging include, fine lines and/or wrinkles, dark spots, and loss of elasticity. “Skin elasticity is the skin’s ability to stretch and then go back to normal once the need to stretch is gone”_Columbia University. Aging is a part of life and a common process which we all experience.
Simply because these visible signs of aging are a part of life does not necessarily mean that there are not things we can do to help combat, slow, and delay this process.
How To Combat the Visible Signs of Aging from the Inside Out
If you are battling with the signs of aging please note that all is not lost. There are many things that we can do to help combat the visible signs of aging, such as going to The Dermatology & Laser Group for treatment. While genetics do play a huge role in how we age over time there are a few things that can be done to help support proper skin and body health which will are sure to help keep your skin appearing more youthful over time. One of the most important things you can do for your skin is to stay hydrated.
Staying hydrated is one of the best recommendations that can be made for how to combat the visible signs of aging. The skin is the largest organ in your body so keep it hydrated by drinking lots of water. Water makes up 60% of your body and is not only important in rehydrating your cells and keeping them supple, but also plays a crucial role in cell metabolism as well as flushing toxins. Toxins when built up can contribute to premature aging. The Mayo Clinic recommends to “drink enough fluid so that you rarely feel thirsty and your urine is colorless or light yellow”
Another great way to flush toxins is to exercise regularly. Breaking a sweat helps to expel toxins through our pores. Regular exercise also helps to increase oxygenated blood flow to all of our cells. This increase in oxygenated blood flow is what gives us that healthy flushed glow post workout. Oxygen is essential to cellular metabolism. It helps to better distribute vital nutrients to all of the cells in your body. Regular exercise also helps to lower stress hormones which can contribute to premature aging as well. Additionally to lowering stress levels, increasing oxygenated blood flow, and detoxify your pores, breaking a sweat on a regular basis keeps your body fit and functioning at its optimum level.
Now that we have addressed how to combat the visible signs of aging from the inside out it is important to cover treating the skin from the outside in. Enter the wonderful science behind the organic skincare we provide at Le Reve Organic Spa & Boutique and the rejuvenating skin treatments we offer. When it comes to your skin it is always a good idea to seek the advice of professionals and reserve some time with your esthetician.
How To Combat the Visible Signs of Aging from the Outside In
Receive Facials Regularly
One of the best ways we can recommend how to combat the visible signs of aging is to receive your facials at regularly. Facials are not just to pamper you while cleansing and refortifying your skin. Facials are designed to give those professionals who specialize in the skincare a chance to analyze, diagnose, and treat skin for its specific needs. Just like regular visits to your dentist are necessary in keeping your smile looking its best – a regular visit to your esthetician helps to keep your skin healthy, happy, and more youthful looking. A great rule of thumb is that if you are trying to simply maintain your beautiful skin then a facial a month is sufficient, but if you are trying to treat or correct a skin condition or concern then a visit once a week or every other week may be necessary. It is important to check with your esthetician to determine the frequency in which you should visit your local day spa. At Le Reve Organic Spa & Boutique we have a facial designed to target the visible signs of aging. This facial is called the Age Defying Antioxidant Facial.

This is another great reason to sheik in with your Le Reve esthetician.
One of the most crucial parts of any skin regimen is a moisturizer. Moisturizing helps to reintroduce the moisture loss from cleansing. To help combat the visible signs of aging and keep your skin appearing more youthful choose a more hydrating moisturizer designed to increase the skins elasticity and promote collagen synthesis while minimizing dark spots. At Le Reve Organic Spa & Boutique we offer a great anti-aging moisturizer that does just that called Ultra Firm and Lift Cream.
