skyn ICELAND x Sulis & Thermae

Jessica Bates is the Founder and Managing Director of the UK luxury beauty and wellness store, Sulis & Thermae. Jessica is a wellness and beauty junkie just like we are at skyn ICELAND, and she has plenty of wellness tips and tricks to live by. She also travels to AMAZING places and knows the real deal about the benefits of eating right for both inner and outer beauty. We picked her brain on all of our biggest beauty and wellness questions.

    • 1. Tell us a little about yourself and Sulis & Thermae. Why did you create a wellness store?

      I decided to create a wellness & beauty store to create a space where you could find a collection of curated brands with unique stories from amazing brand founders that have beautiful ingredients that enhance overall wellbeing and beauty.
    • 2. What does wellness mean to you?

      Wellness is feeling balanced and feeling good about yourself. It starts from within which is then reflected to your outer layer.
    • 3. How do you balance personal life and business? Do you get stressed?

      It’s tricky, but for me exercise has to play a large part in winding down and enabling me to feel good about myself. If I don’t listen to my body and work out to take some me time, then it results in me getting uptight and stressed which I hate.

    • 4. What is your favorite healthy snack?

      I’m currently obsessed with FAGE Total 0% yogurt with blueberries and a spoon of really good organic peanut butter. It’s to die for!
    • 5. What is your favorite skyn ICELAND product?

      It has to be the Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels!
    • 6. If you could pick one place in the world to open a Sulis & Thermae Spa, where would it be and why?

      Probably in Iceland where we could have our own thermal spa – it’s getting me excited just thinking about it!
    • 7. What is your ideal travel destination?

      I love to go to places where I can just relax and have reflective time, so somewhere warm with bags of culture too…. and a sun lounger of course!

    • 8. What is your current travel must-have?

      SPF! I also carry my face SPF everywhere with me. It’s so important to protect our skin from the sunshine.
    • 9. What was your latest beauty splurge?

      I actually can’t remember. I try so many amazing products from brands at HQ that there isn’t a need. I can’t live without self-tan at the minute and I have plenty of that to cover me through the season.
    • 10. What is your beauty ritual?

      I always have a Sunday pamper once a week, which includes exfoliating, masking, and moisturizing. Each other day, I also double cleanse and moisturize. I cleanse twice to ensure every bit of dirt is off my skin.
    • 11. What product can’t you live without?

      A cucumber scented face SPF!
    • 12. Favorite workout?

      I love my Friday sessions with my PT! She puts me through it and we weight train mostly.
    • 13. What stresses you out?

      Not being prepared, I hate it!
    • 14. How do you de-stress and wind down?

      Going to the gym, funnily enough. I’ve always been pretty good at doing exercise and sports. It has always come to me naturally, so whenever I can’t do something or when I’m stressed, I head to the gym.
    • 15. How do you want people to feel when they leave your stores or your spa?

      Relaxed, recharged, energized.
    • 16. What is on your bucket list?

      To learn to fly a helicopter!
