Glass discovers the natural beauty benefits of Iceland’s Blue Lagoon

THE Retreat at Blue Lagoon is by far the most luxurious place to stay if you want to enjoy Iceland’s natural geothermal spa. 

The lagoon is one of the 25 wonders of the world, and it attracts millions of visitors each year. It offers stunning scenery, and the lagoon itself is known for its wondrous healing properties, many of which are specifically beneficial for the skin. 

The Retreat

The Retreat at Blue Lagoon has developed its own skincare brand focused on the natural properties found in the volcanic elements found in the Icelandic environment. They offer everything from renewing scrubs to masks using the famous Icelandic algae, we take a look at some of their top products. 

Lava scrub

Lava Scrub Mask 

This mask may look daunting at first however, its renewing black clay removes dead skin cells and regenerates cell turnover due to the exfoliating properties of the bioactive Blue Lagoon Lava. It uses fine grains which come from the surrounding volcanic areas of the lagoon, and it aids cleansing. It leaves the skin feeling softer and glowing in appearance.

Algae and silica mask duo

Silica Mud Mask 

A purifying face mask can sometimes include harsh ingredients, but the silica mud mask is fragrance-free, vegan, paraben-free and colour free. It deep-cleanses and strengthens the surface of the skin, and it works brilliantly if you want to minimise the appearance of pores.  

Algae Mask 

Algae is found in the lagoon’s geothermal seawater, and it offers nourishment to the skin. It naturally boosts brightness in the skin and leaves the skin looking refreshed and soft to the touch. Usually you would only be able to use this product at the lagoon yourself but If you can’t go to the Blue Lagoon, why not bring the lagoon’s magic to your own home?
