Holiday Skin Survival Guide 2015: Skyn Iceland #holiday #skyniceland #skinsurvival #winter #skincare

This holiday season your skin might feel a little off or be in distress mode. This is because of the change of seasons, the holiday parties, the stress, over-eating, etc. It all takes a toll on your skin. So, take a step back and recharge your skin with some products that are sure to renew your skin, bring it back to life. Skyn Iceland has some wonderful products that will re-energize tired, lifeless, dull skin and make it glow again! All Skyn Iceland products are cruelty-free and vegan. Skyn Iceland products also have the benefit of the Cryo-Protective Complex, which is a combination of ingredients (such as Red Algae, Colloidal Oatmeal, Antarcticine, Gooseberry Extract, Arctic Oil Complex and Glacial Waters) that help protect skin, renew it and get rid of any irritation and the environmental stress that has affected it. 

Nordic Skin Peel 3 US fl. oz./90 mL  $45.00

Glowing, translucent, amazing skin is there. It is just underneath the dull, flaky, broken-out, exhausted skin that is covering it up. These double-duty peel pads help to deliver a one-two punch that takes lackluster skin suffering from chronic stress and brings it back to life. Lactic acid enzymes gently exfoliate while soothing natural anti-bacterial agents sweep up dirt and oil so that pores are left squeaky clean. Skin looks and feels fresh, bright and clear. This gentle formula is infused with calming emollients and potent anti-oxidants to improve tone, texture and it diminishes fine lines. All without any irritation. 

I love how the Nordic Skin Peel helps to exfoliate the skin without causing any irritation at all. They are gentle to the skin, but they work hard at leaving skin feeling soft, supple and free of excess dead skin cells. Skin is left glowing and the dull, flaky skin that was there is gone for good. Use daily if you can tolerate it. If it is too strong try every other day or every two days. 

Arctic Face Oil 1 fl.oz./30 mL $35.00

This oil goes beyond a normal moisturizer. It helps to give skin a nourishing infusion of soothing hydration to help revitalize and repair skin. Luxurious and lightweight in texture, Arctic Face Oil delivers super powerful hydration. It repairs and balances skin’s lipid barrier while locking in lasting moisture. Over time is smoothes fine lines and wrinkles to reveal a softer and more youthful complexion. The face oil is made from 99.9% Camellia Oil, which is naturally sourced and cold pressed to retain maximum nutrients. Extracted from the Camelina Sativa plant, which thrives in sub-zero temps, it has a unique composition of 9 essential fatty acids which enable it to survive in harsh weather. The Omega 3:6:9 ratio of the oil plays a critical role in normal skin function, making this blend exceedingly curative and rejuvenating to skin. A natural anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory, it soothes, calms and protects skin. 

Use this oil at night under moisturizer. Apply a few drops to fingertips and rub into face, even under eyes. It can be used on hair and cuticles too. I like how well it just sinks into skin. It makes skin feel soft and supple. Skin definitely soaks it up, and this oil is great for skin that is stressed and is in need of some TLC. 
Arctic Hydrating Balm 1.7 fl.oz./50 mL $35.00
This moisturizer is great for skin that is irritated and exhausted. When constant stress and environmental aggressors pile on, skin can end up being feeling beat down. This deeply hydrating balm harnesses the power of cryogenic technology to moisturize, repair and protect super dry, sensitive skin. Arctic Hydrating Balm blends Antarctic glacial proteins with soothing Arctic red algae to combat dryness and restore skin’s luminosity. Fatty acid rich Arctic oil fight environmental stressors and Gooseberry extract reduces inflammation and irritation. 
This product is great for skin that is under intense stress. It is used twice a day, after cleansing and treating with Arctic Face Oil and Nordic Skin Peel. Use on skin that is dry, irritated and dehydrated. It will give skin the moisture needed to feel whole again. Skin will glow and lose the irritation and inflammation that it had.
Pure Cloud Cream 1.7 fl.oz./50 mL $55.00 

Winter weather can damage skin. The summer can put it through the wringer. Environmental stress adds up to accelerated aging. What to do? Try Pure Cloud Cream. This incredibly soothing, supremely comforting, light-as-air cream provides intense hydration to skin. It also provides serious healing relief and much needed rejuvenation for skin that is stressed and irritated to the extreme. This cream was formulated specifically to reverse the effects of extreme weather, both hot and cold, and to provide intense pampering after cosmetic procedures. It rapidly hydrates, replenishes and nourishes the skin so that it goes back to being healthy. This is like no other cream you have ever experienced. 
If your skin goes through the “wringer” with peels, exfoliation, facials, etc. then this is the cream for you. It will save your skin. It is a gentle but powerful plumping and rejuvenating moisturizer. Sodium hyaluronate provides intense moisture while hydrolyzed rice protein helps to fortify and inhibits collagen breakdown. Skin is softer, smoother and back to normal. Use after cleansing, over face and throat. 

 The Antidote Cooling Daily Lotion 1.76 fl.oz./52 mL $45.00

For skin that is congested, prone to blemishes, or skin that tends to be red and irritated but is still stressed out, The Antidote Cooling Daily Lotion is the answer. Stress can trigger breakouts and excessive oiliness, and it will deprive skin of essential nutrients, moisture and oxygen. This lightweight, daily hydrating lotion for chronically stressed skin goes on with a cooling burst to decongest, detoxify and stabilize the complexion. It returns it to its natural, fresh and healthy state. With daily use, skin is fortified and protected from the ravages of stress. 
This lotion is an excellent bet for skin that breaks out or for red and irritated skin. Super stressed out skin. This is skin that really needs an “antidote”. Use after the Nordic Skin Peel for best results. Can be used in the morning and at night. I tried it on my own skin (my chin, it breaks out often). And it did help my chin look and feel better)

These products from Skyn Iceland are great for skin that needs some Tender Loving Care (TLC) this holiday season. Skin gets stressed and then does not look its best. It needs to be treated with some extra care and then it will look and feel better. The holidays do not only take a toll on us emotionally but physically. It should be the most special time of the year but it ends up being too much for us to take with all of the frenzy. Take some time out to de-stress so that you don’t end up feeling too stressed out.
