Blue Lagoon Skin Care
Set about 20 minutes outside of Reykjavik, Iceland, and surrounded by fields of black lava rock, the stunning Blue Lagoon geothermal mineral hot spring is renowned for its powerful healing effects on the skin. Thanks to high levels of active minerals, silica and algae in the warm seawater, the Lagoon's waters help soften rough patches, plump-up collagen and brighten skin, and even soothe chronic skin conditions like psoriasis. Guests who visit the Lagoon facility often spend the day in the milky sky blue waters, lathering themselves with the white silica mud, indulging in in-water spa treatments and generally soaking up the steamy goodness—and come out with glowing skin as a result.
But if you can't get to Iceland any time soon, never fear: Blue Lagoon recently launched its product line on our shores, so the waters can work their magic in the comfort of your home. (Though the Lagoon first introduced products in 1995, this is the first time that the line is available in the U.S.) Packed with the signature combination of silica for strengthening, algae for anti-aging, and minerals to revitalize, the self-professed "naturceutical" collection includes something for every skin need: Exfoliators, toners and serums for the face, softening bath and body oils and lotions, and targeted kits and treatment items are all on the menu.
Of course, there are favorites. The signature Silica Mud Mask—made from the same pure white minerals found in the Lagoon—is a must-have that can be used on both face and body for a near-instant smoothness and glow. Locals also swear by the Hydrating 24h Serum, a deeply nourishing formula that leaves skin replenished and brightened, as well as the Mineral Moisturizing Cream for the body, an immediate dose of moisture for parched skin. While silica provides a natural UV barrier, the popular Anti-Aging Day Cream—perfect for summer-- protects with added SPF 15, while also targeting fine lines and wrinkles.
