She is the super stylist to many of Hollywood’s stars, and her current client list includes some of Tinseltown’s most beautiful celebrities, such as Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Garner, Kate Hudson, Debra Messing, Demi Moore, Liv Tyler, Eva Mendes, Paula Patton and our very own Kate Beckinsale.
There is no doubt that Rachel Zoe looks far younger than her 41 years, and today she revealed one of her beauty top tips. Contrary to popular belief, her beauty secret is not to be found in cosmetic procedures or even Botox. Rachel’s top beauty secret is in fact a cooling eye pad called skyn ICELAND’s Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gel pads, and best of all, we can all afford it as it costs a mere £25.
Rachel described the eye pads to Cosmopolitan USA as ‘life changing’ and added: “[They’re] perfectly sized if you’re on the go.” And she is not the only celebrity who is said to be a fan, actresses Rachel Bilson, 31, and Gwyneth Paltrow, 40, are also thought to love the de-puffing pads.
Each pack of skyn ICELAND’s Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gel pads contain eight pairs of cooling gel pads, specifically designed for the eye area. They work by saturating the eye area with hydrolyzed elastin, which tones and firms, acetyl hexapeptide which help to reduce wrinkles and ginkgo biloba leaf extract coenzyme Q10 for eliminating puffiness.
Rachel said that the gel-filled pads feel: “Like a caffeine jolt to the face, they top my list as a must-have beauty necessity, achieving the effect of an instant eye lift in minutes.” And they are supposed to work within ten minutes, making them a quick fix to fit in with a busy lifestyle.
Rachel Bilson who is currently starring in hit TV series, Hart of Dixie, has also spoken of her love for the cooling pads, saying: “It just works really well — especially when you’re removing eye makeup — and it’s gentle on my skin.”
The founder of skyn Iceland, Sarah Kugelman, developed the company after she was diagnosed chronic stress back in 2003. She was forced to take a three-month break from work so that she could heal herself, and it was during this time that she traveled to Iceland, and discovered a natural oasis of pure, unspoiled waters, air, and plants, exactly what she needed for a calm, clean, and low stress environment. Sarah noticed how the native Icelanders had incredible, vibrant, and healthy skin, and enjoyed a long and healthy lifestyle.
As she herself had worked in the beauty industry for 20 years, helping to develop skincare products for some of the world’s leading beauty companies, she decided to create her own, and skyn ICELAND was born, which she describes as: “The first skincare brand specifically formulated to address the effects of stress on skin.”
Sarah put her experience in Iceland to good use, and came up with several products that utilised the healing properties of Iceland’s natural resources, in an effort to help combat the effects of stress on the skin.
It is recommended that you use the gels once a week or whenever you feel tired and stressed.
Skyn ICELAND’s Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gel pads are available at several retailers, including DermStore.com, Amazon.com, or Beauty.com, or you can buy them directly from the skyn Iceland website here.
