Mode Monday | Cooling Down with skyn ICELAND


I’ve learned first hand that stress has an unrelenting effect on the way I look. When we’re stressed, hormones like cortisol, adrenaline and histamine wash into the blood stream and can wreak havoc on our skin. All that excess oil, breakouts, dehydration, and irritation lead to premature aging.

Lara of Pretty Connected partnered skyn ICELAND to host an evening of relaxation at Henri Bendel earlier this month to slow down and cool down with their Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels, healthy Liquiteria juices, yummy gluten-free Kaked cupcakes, manis, and stress tests. Skyn’s hero product is the Eye Gels, cooling gel patches that infuse the eye area with concentrated doses of elastin to help firm and tone, hexapeptide helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, ginkgo biloba to improve blood flow and help reduce puffiness, and advanced antioxidants to help prevent future damage — a summer must-have.

I wore another one of Carly’s outfits to the event. She found me the perfect black linen blazer (Vintage Havana) and floral jeans (Black Sheep, sorry a boutique brand). Of course despite a room full of bloggers I didn’t get a full length pic but here are bits and pieces. You can find more photos on skyn ICELAND’s Facebook page and Pretty Connected’s.

    What an awesome event!!! I sooo need some stress relief!* Waving hi to my blogger bud Danielle*

  8. Looks like a fab night out. I totally agree about stress and skin. When I am getting 6 hours and running around I really start to look OLD. When I dial back it really helps revitalize. You can’t have it all. Damn.
