I’m always talking about taking care of your skin, and how makeup will never look fantastic if the skin underneath it isn’t looking fantastic.
So what’s a girl to do if her skin is completely stressed out?

If your post holiday, mid-winter skin is stressing, or if you are stressed out and fall into the “does my skin look as freaked out as I feel” category, you need to know about skyn ICELAND.
This entire line is devoted to correcting stressed skin. Its brilliant.
Stress does not discriminate. It’s an equal opportunity epidemic, affecting everyone in this high-octane, 24/7 world. You’re familiar with how stress feels within — the palpitations, the nervous energy, the chronic worry. But how does it affect you on the outside?
What happens to your skin when it’s subjected to stress day in and day out? When stress is unrelenting, your hormone and chemical levels can spike, disrupting your body’s natural, healthy balance. Plus, skin’s natural immune function is impaired, so it’s less able to heal itself.
skyn ICELAND skincare products are specifically formulated to counteract the detrimental effects of stress on skin. Since stressed skin is damaged skin, what it needs most is to be soothed, healed and replenished to regain its natural health and radiance. In Iceland’s pure, untouched environment they discovered new beneficial botanicals and pristine Icelandic glacial waters, which helped to create the perfect antidote for stressed skin.
When you think about Iceland it’s peaceful, unspoiled, totally pure and pristine. Its clean air and water, mineral-rich hot springs, deep fjords, untouched glacial rivers, health and harmony. Now, think about what all of our lives are actually like. Do the words “overscheduled,” “overextended,” “non-stop” and sometimes just “totally overwhelming” sound more familiar?
Here are my 4 favorite skyn ICELAND products, that I use both in my makeup kit and at home on my own skin:
Pure Cloud Cleanser.
Pure Cloud Cleanser is the ultimate in cream cleansers.
It cleanses, dissolves makeup, hydrates
and nourishes, and is super gentle on both
stressed out, and non stressed skin.
Arctic Face Mist
This beautiful facial mist instantly
soothes and calms irritated, stressed out
skin, with natural icelandic mineral water,
antioxidents and multivitamins fortifying
and replenishing the skin, bringing
back its natural healthy glow.
When skin needs an instant boost and repair,
whether its a client who’s had a long night out on the town,
or whether its me looking a little sleep deprived and
worse for wear, I use
skyn Iceland Antioxidant Calming Serum.
It soothes away redness and irritation while boosting
the skin’s immune function and giving some
super intense hydration.
The formulation is super lightweight,
doesn’t leave any film on the surface of the skin,
and you see an immediate result.
Invariably if I’m using the Antioxidant Calming Serum
I’m also using the skyn ICELAND
Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels.
When we’re stressed out or tired, the delicate skin
under the eyes really takes a beating.
These gels firm, de-puff, reduce wrinkling,
and hydrate in 10 minutes.
They are fantastic to use when you are traveling,
and are a favorite
of flight attendants world wide.
skyn ICELAND products are all paraben free, Petroleum free, Sulfate free, Cruelty free and 100% vegetarian.
