For thousands of years, gemstones and crystals have been recognized for their power to heal and release the physical, spiritual and emotional blockages within the body, thus promoting a free flow of energy. Because crystals and gemstones, much like ourselves, are compromised of the life-giving elements of our Earth, we are inherently receptive to the electromagnetic energy they transmit.
Crystals and gemstones: the beauty secret of ancient civilizations
These semi-precious and precious rocks have powerful vibrations that help us balance, transform and manifest our intentions. Ancient Roman and Chinese civilizations used quartz crystal, green jade and lapis lazuli as protective talismans, within beautiful jewelry and to help dissipate sickness and disease. Traditional healers praised the mystical and restorative properties of stones like black onyx, malachite, turquoise, and mother of pearl. The Egyptians, in particular, were renowned for their belief in crystal and gemstone healing, so much that they created elixirs, make-up and emollient creams from shimmering rocks that were thought to purify and brighten while clearing emotional negativity. Today, gemstone-infused skincare products are gaining traction as part of a larger move toward holistic beauty and wellness. Thanks to their health and mood-enhancing properties, certain rocks have a meaningful place in modern skincare. As it turns out, the minerals found in rose quartz, diamonds and gemstones have anti-inflammatory, regenerative and anti-microbial properties, helping them replenish skin, calm redness and combat signs of aging.
A natural, mineral-based therapy
Why use skincare products laden with chemicals when you can harness the natural beauty benefits of mineral-based crystals and gemstones? This ancient beauty ritual isn’t just a passing trend. There is actual science to the cellular changes that minerals facilitate when incorporated in serums, facial scrubs, tonics and skin-perfecting masks. The natural elements act as electro-stimulants in gemstone-elaborated products, which means they help to enhance cellular repair and promote radiance from within. Take quartz, one of the more popular stones used in holistic skincare. Quartz crystal – either rose quartz or clear – is reputed to stimulate blood circulation, soothe irritation and minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of aging.Citrine, a yellow or orange-hued quartz, is the stone of light and happiness. This energy stone has regenerative powers and aids in cellular renewal, resulting in a brighter, more even complexion. For a luminous glow, consider the rejuvenating benefits of diamonds – a master stone known to help balance, detox and nourish the skin.
Pearls are packed with gluthathione, a powerful antioxidant that fights free radicals and helps reduce the appearance of sun spots. This luminescent stone quickens collagen and elastin regeneration while boosting skin elasticity and firmness.
