CRYSTAL SKINCARE: THE NEWEST HOLISTIC TREND FOR RADIANT SKIN
Originally published: JULY 2, 2021
Of all of the trends in skincare these days, between sustainable beauty, skinimalism, personalized skincare and others, perhaps the most luxurious of all is the trend of crystal-infused skincare. Crystals have been all the rage for years now- not only are they immensely beautiful to behold but are also said to help with a whole host of things like reducing stress and anxiety, ushering in abundance, promoting healing and attracting good energy, among other benefits.
Ok, I know I went a little woo woo on you there, but the fact is that there is science to back up the energetic power of crystals. Think of it this way: everything contains energy, our own bodies, objects around us, everything- and they are all constantly fluctuating at various frequencies. Crystals, however, are literally imprinted with the DNA of the earth itself and because of this hold a certain energy within them that is basically unrivaled in nature.
When it comes to crystals in skincare, the idea is that these energetic vibrations lend themselves not only to the glow and radiance of the skin but also to healing certain skin issues like eczema and acne as well.
There is no solid scientific backing to prove the efficacy of crystal-infused skincare, but ask any devout crystal user and there is no doubt that there is a belief it works. Regardless, using crystals in your skincare just feels like taking your skincare routine to a whole other level.
With the upcoming launch of our Crystal Skincare (<--- insert name here) kits, we’re so excited to get into a little more detail regarding some of our favorite crystals to help improve and sustain the vibrancy and health of your skin. Keep an eye out for the launch of our kits containing all of these amazing crystal infusions by following us on IG @lunahlife.
Ruby is one of the most strengthening and nourishing stones and thus is said to promote overall skin health by improving blood circulation and aiding in the detox process.
Emeralds are calming and cleansing. Emerald-infused skincare works to balance combination skin and calm sensitive or irritated skin. Since emeralds are high energy stones, they are also thought to be good for anti-aging purposes.
Jade is perhaps best known for the current jade roller trend. Jade rollers are used to boost circulation, reduce puffiness in the face and under eye area and even to contour the skin. Jade stones themselves promote balance and harmony and are also used to restore and strengthen the skin.
Tourmaline crystals promote radiance from within the skin. A revitalizing stone, tourmaline is said to increase blood flow and protect the skin from environmental stressors.
Hematite is known as the crystal to rejuvenate tired eyes. Its rich iron content is also purported to stimulate collagen synthesis and assist in the oxygenation of the skin.
The stone of love and compassion, rose quartz is used to promote a youthful, glowing visage. One of the more gentle crystals, rose quartz is particularly useful for those with sensitive skin. It also has cooling properties which make it a wonderful option for those with skin conditions like rosacea and eczema.
Aquamarine is a stunning gem usually associated with the ocean and thus thought to boost tranquility and clarity. In skincare, aquamarine is thought to assist in anti-aging.
Amethyst is a gorgeous deep purple stone with a calming energy. Not only is amethyst supposed to aid in more restorative sleep (hello beauty sleep!) but it is also used as an anti-inflammatory, for supporting cell regeneration and for soothing and calming skin, especially acne-prone skin.
We are so thoroughly excited to introduce our forthcoming crystal skincare sets! Combining the power of these healing, energetic crystals with skincare rituals is our way of nourishing and restoring the skin from the inside out.
