All hail the healing powers of crystal skincare
Holistic skincare is only gaining momentum, and in the age of mindful beauty, the way a product makes you feel is just as important as the way it makes you look. Beauty brands are putting their guru hats on and turning back to age-old ingredients in a bid to enhance and enlighten both your outer beauty and inner strength. Enter crystals, each enriched with their own majestic healing properties and here to save our skin. From stones that help to combat signs of ageing to gems that reduce redness and inflammation, there’s a crystal for every skin type and skin goal.
Whether in crushed powder form, extracted into liquids, or transformed into massage tools, there are many ways crystals are working their way into our worlds, and they’re definitely here to seduce the cynics. As someone who generally equated “energy” with mustering the strength to remove makeup before bed, scepticism has certainly crept into my mind, but the benefits are (crystal) clear. In fact, it’s a common belief that the high frequency of crystals actually helps to drive ingredients towards the cells that need them the most, making sure that the right things get to the right places. And hey, if Miranda Kerr's a fan, who are we to pass on that kind of glow?
It all boils down to benchmarks, and whether you score your skincare on relaxation or results. If you’re happy with a combo of the two, we’ve found some seriously genius gemstones worthy of a spot in your collection. After all, who wouldn’t want the serenity of moonstone or the soothing properties of jade miraculously imparted into our faces? Give crystals a go – they (literally) rock.
