Whether it's the look and feel of your skin or your general health, stress is among the most insidious damaging agents. The skyn ICELAND products take on the ravages of stress at the dermatological level, constituting an innovative and comprehensive collection worthy of any skincare regime.
The brand is the brainchild of Sarah Kugelman, a beauty-industry veteran who suffered the physical degradations of unhealthy amounts of stress in the early 2000s and retreated to Iceland to recuperate. There, on that wild and strikingly scenic island in the North Atlantic, Kugelman began investigating the link between stress and skin issues as well as the natural skincare ingredients native to the remote country. Marrying the potential of Iceland-sourced nutrients with top-of-the-line chemistry and formal research into stress and physiology, Kugelman founded the first skincare company specially dedicated to the dermatological impacts of stress: skyn ICELAND.
The skyn ICELAND products range from facial cleansers and masks to skin peels and age-defying formulations. Among the special ingredients employed is glacial freshwater from Iceland, renowned for its pristine quality partly stemming from the natural filtration it undergoes through volcanic bedrock. Also utilized are a variety of Icelandic plants--from Arctic cranberry to butterfly bush--as well as moss and kelp, organisms richly stocked with nutrients due to the condensed growing season and substantial rigors of Iceland's climate.
Over time, stress begins to show up plainly on your face in the form of wrinkles, shadowy eyes, and other symptoms of premature aging. Look to the skyn ICELAND lineup for products specifically prepared to redress some of these unwanted features by giving your skin a nourishing boost.
