Benefits of Regular Facials Santa Barbara

Benefits of Regular Facials

Check out the benefits of regular facials at Le Reve Organic Spa & Boutique in Santa Barbara California
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.

Mini-Refresher Facial: Ideal for those who need a quick pick me up or are new to facials. So if you only have a lunch hour this 30-minute facial is for you!

Le Reve “The Dream” Facial: Our 75-minute Le Reve signature facial is designed for those who have dry, dehydrated skin.

How to: Combat the visible signs of aging

How to: Combat the Visible Signs of Aging

We at Le Reve Organic Spa & Boutique would like to share with you how to combat the visible signs of aging.

How To: Combat Signs of Aging - Le Reve SpaSigns 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. Considering we have the option to get regular facials, create a useful skincare routine, check out a cbd shop in the hopes of finding a solution to lessen visible signs of aging, we should at least be hopeful. 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. 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. One of the most important things you can do for your skin is to stay hydrated.

Drink Waterwater of healthy skin le reve spa
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”
Exercise for healthy skin - lerevespaExercise Regularly
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

Facial at Le Reve SpaReceive 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 their specific needs. Just like regular visits to your dentist are necessary for keeping your smile looking its best – a regular visit to your esthetician helps to keep your skin healthy, happy, and more youthful-looking. We recommend going to a Dentist Louisville and a Louisville-based esthetician. 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 ageing. This facial is called the Age Defying Antioxidant Facial.

AGE DEFYING ANTIOXIDANT FACIAL

The Le Reve Age Defying Facial s a ninety minute results orientated spa treatment which is specifically designed to target the signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, and the loss of elasticity. This anti-aging facial provides a deep cleanse followed be a Yam and Pumpkin Enzyme treatment to remove dead skin. Your skin is that treated with a soothing chamomile toner to help shrink and tighten pores. Then series of masks are applied to rehydrate, refortify skin, and increase collagen. This wonderful facial also includes an additional eye treatment, lip treatment, décolleté treatment and even a special treatment for your hands.

This is another great reason to sheik in with your Le Reve esthetician.

Moisturize

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.

Facial Frequency: How often is good?

Facial Frequency: How Often Should You Receive a Facial?

When it comes to Facial Frequency, is receiving a facial once a month enough?
To me, the answer varies.  For the client who just loves the “spa-ahh” environment, it’s a great way to treat one’s self along with getting the benefits of treating the skin. 

 

DEEP CLARIFYING FACIAL

For a client who has a bit of congestion or chronic breakouts (including acne), I’d recommend the Deep Clarifying facial weekly. A gentle exfoliant is used along with refining and purifying masks that soften and detox the skin along with extractions, which play a big part in the process of “cleaning-out-the-skin”. Receiving the Deep Clarifying weekly allows for your Esthetician to see how your skin reacts to products and how your skin is changing. Whenever this is achieved  you may start to receive a facial every 3-4 weeks. Of course if you cannot do this, Esthetician’s are here to help educate you by providing a personalized prescription card of product recommendations along with how and when to use these treatments. But I do not recommend self-extracting. You can damage the skin and leave scarring if you do not perform them properly. You have to know what you can and cannot touch. Leave it to the experts!  

AGE DEFYING ANTIOXIDANT FACIAL
Facial Frequency - Galvanic Treatment - Le Reve SpaMoving onto our famous Age-Defying Facial. This one does it all! In this treatment, we do a thorough cleanse along with a powerful enzyme that contains yam and pumpkin puree that exfoliates, stimulates collagen production and evens skin tone. Now every client’s skin is different so the masks we use will be different for everyone. But one thing that is the same is the use of the Galvanic Treatment over these masks. If you’ve received the Age-Defying before and aren’t sure what this is and does, here’s an explanation:
 Galvanic current is a continuous electric current that flows in one direction. During the first mask, we are “pre-treating” with the Galvanic instrument on a negative charge. Since like charges repel each other, the negative charge of the Galvanic Instrument repels or pushes the mask into the skin. The purifying ingredients bind with impurities in the skin causing them to have a negative charge.
  During the second mask, both the mask and the Galvanic instrument are positively charged. These positive charges repel each other, helping deliver the ingredients deeper into the skin. The positively charged galvanic instrument also attracts the remaining negatively charged impurities from the first mask or (pre-treat cycle), drawing them out of the skin to give your skin a fresher, more vibrant look. A Galvanic treatment can enhance the delivery of certain key ingredients for up to 24 hours. Most clients receive this facial once a month, however in my opinion, every two weeks would be ideal to achieve desired results much faster. 
MIND & BODY FACIAL
All our facials are super, uber relaxig no matter what you are doing as far as treatment. We offer 3 other facials that help with any and all skin concerns but focus more on relaxation. The Mind and Body Facial or the deluxe facial, as I call it, helps to balance the Chakras of the body and utilizes hot stones on the neck, shoulders, hands and feet! Wow right?! 

LE REVE HYDRATING FACIAL
Don’t let me forget our Signature Le Reve Facial that focuses on pure hydration but not without putting you practically to sleep with the hand and foot coconut treatment at the start of the facial. Literally, head to toe hydration. 🙂

MINI REFRESHER FACIAL
For those with less than a lunch hour of availability our Mini Refresher Facial is the perfect facial for you! While this facial does not provide extractions, it is the best at topically treating all skin conditions when given a limited amount of time. Your esthetician will probably set up a series to help you reach any skin care goals you may have which is an excellent choice for this relaxing facial experience.
