In many ways, I’m a former beauty junky. The interest is still there, however, I don’t spend as much time caring for myself as I would like to. Now that my children are getting older, I’m trying to remember to give back to myself and rejuvenate – at home and elsewhere.
Last month, I attended an event hosted by Lara of Pretty Connected which focused on slowing down and cooling down with Skyn Iceland at Henri Bendel. The private event room was transformed into a relaxing space with tranquil beauty treatments and healthy treats.
I first discovered Skyn Iceland during my first pregnancy when I searched for quality products that were paraben-free and natural. I had the chance to speak with founder Sarah Kugelman about her product inspiration drawn from her travels in Iceland and her dedication to keeping her products completely safe.
I’ve since tested out the above products, and they have added a soothing element to my (typically rushed) at home regime. The Glacial Cleansing Cloths have been a perfect post spinning class refresher and the Antidote Cooling Daily Lotion feels heavenly and smells divine. I’ve been spritzing myself throughout the day with the Arctic Face Mist and I’m able to create a spa-like experience at home with the Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels.
I’ve definitely spent time thinking about the ways in which stress may manifest itself in my body – and I’m working on improving my self care. I’m glad that I had the chance to meet with the one skincare line specifically formulated to address the damaging effects of stress on the skin.
