Am I stressed?

Our busy modern lifestyles can leave our brain, body and skin feeling depleted. With longer working hours, better social lives and social media scrolling keeping us from getting a good night’s sleep, stress is becoming a modern epidemic.

Cortisol is a stress hormone that is released by the adrenal glands. It is an important hormone that helps us deal with kinds of stressful situations.

When cortisol levels are too high for too long, the hormone can have a negative effect, with symptoms including weight gain, high blood pressure, disrupted sleep, negative impact on mood, reduced energy levels and negative effects on skin.

What is stressed skin?

The five symptoms of stressed skin are:

  • Accelerated ageing
  • Adult acne
  • Irritation
  • Dryness
  • Dullness

What does stressed skin look like?

  • Lines & wrinkles, sagging skin, loss of elasticity
  • Clogged pores, oiliness & blemishes
  • Sensitivity, redness, itching, hives
  • Long-term stressed skin could lead to psoriasis, eczema or rosacea
  • Dehydration, flakiness & dullness
  • Uneven skin tone & texture, lack of radiance & hyperpigmentation

Treat stressed skin with Skyn Iceland

Skyn Iceland’s hyper-potent and efficacious products work specifically to address the various symptoms of stressed skin. Here are their daily essentials to cleanse, polish & moisturise in three quick steps!

Skyn ICELAND Glacial Face Wash

This mild and creamy cleanser soothes and invigorates your senses whilst purifying and detoxifying stressed and hormonal complexions. The foaming action refreshes and deeply cleanses without drying or stripping skin.

The cleanser, made with mineral-rich Icelandic glacial water and indigenous Arctic berries, restores and rebalances stressed-out skin.

Oat and amino acid-based ingredients provide extra-gentle cleansing whilst cylindrica seed oil helps to repair skin’s natural lipid barrier. Icelandic kelp helps to revitalise skin and fight inflammation and skin receives antibacterial protection from white willow bark.

Skyn ICELAND Nordic Skin Peel

Suitable for even the most sensitive of skin, these gentle exfoliating pads tone, brighten and renew dull complexion. The individual pads utilise the natural exfoliation properties of lactic acid, papaya fruit and willow bark for fresh and bright skin.

Dry and dehydrated skin is often the result of an impaired lipid barrier and the Nordic Skin Peel pads gently exfoliate skin’s surface and replenishes the protective barrier with nourishing emollients and protective antioxidants.

Willow bark is a natural analgesic, helping to soothe irritation and provide antibacterial protection. Willow bark, in combination with Witch hazel helps to clear pores and refresh skin.

Skyn ICELAND the ANTIDOTE Cooling Daily Lotion

This lightweight, cooling and hydrating tonic is ideal for chronically stressed skin that is prone to redness and breakouts. The lotion works by restoring nutrients, moisture and oxygen and works over time to reduce redness, fortify skin and protect the lipid barrier

The non-greasy formula contains Omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids to nourish skin with moisture, whilst also detoxifying, decongesting and stabilising the complexion.
