Gemstones and crystals have generated a lot of buzz lately in the beauty industry, and suddenly they’ve become the new skincare thing. But even if you hadn’t heard of gemstone-infused skin care up until now, the truth is that this is far from a new hype or passing trend.
Gemstones and crystals have been used for health and beauty for thousands of years because of their regenerative and energetic properties. Traditional Asian medicine, teaches that each gemstone is related to a different chakra in the body and holder of one of a kind skin benefits. Wearing gemstones as jewelry also allows our bodies to absorb and benefit from their energetic qualities.
It makes sense to treat something as precious as your skin, with something as equally precious as gemstone-infused skincare. Here’s how 5 gemstones, crystals and metals can be used in the form of serums, creams and masks for a healthier skin:
#1 SAPPHIRE: Since ancient times, blue sapphire—a water element—has been used to achieve deep hydration of the skin. This works even better when combined with African shea butter. Its fatty acids help boost sapphire’s hydrating power.
#2 RUBY: Ruby is recommended to strengthen and nourish the skin as well as to increase its blood flow. When used in facial serums with jojoba seed oil and vitamin C it can also help brighten and even out skin tone.
#3 PEARL: Asian medicine, has used Pearls to treat digestive, fertility and heart health problems. When it comes to skincare, for centuries it was also used by Romans, Greeks and Egyptians to balance both dry and oily skin. Pearl powder can also be used to treat other skin issues such as rosacea.
#4 DIAMONDS: Diamond-infused skincare can make your complexion shine like never before. Diamonds offer longer exfoliation effects to the skin than any other exfoliating agent. It effectively removes dead cells, reduces appearance of sun damage and helps reveal a youthful radiance and an even skin tone.
#5 GOLD: Gold is a powerful anti-aging skincare ingredient because it stimulates skin cell renewal, and holds antioxidants. It soothes the skin and slows down the breakdown of elastin. But, most importantly, gold can help reduce inflammation, which is a cause of puffy eyes, acne and dark spots.
