8 Crystal-Infused Skin Products You Need
Unless you’re an avid crystal collector, you’re probably mostly used to having sapphire, amethyst or rose quartz wrapped round your finger in the form of a Pandora birthstone ring.
But, ICYMI or shall we say, in case you’ve been living under a rock, crystals have recently found their way into skin care, and the world is going crazy for it.
Yep, crystal-infused skin care is the latest beauty trend to go global, with nearly 70k posts on Instagram using the hashtag #jaderoller.
‘Crystals – in the form of face rollers – are becoming more and more popular because of our desire to go back to basics in skincare’ crystal healer and psychic Kim Alexis explains to Refinery29.
And well, she’s not wrong. Crystals have been around for centuries, often used in Ayurvedic practices and best known for their healing powers and energies, so it comes as no surprise that it’s believed when crushed and powdered, gemstones provide incredible skin care benefits.
‘It makes sense for the beauty industry to incorporate the natural, organic feeling of crystals into their products and skincare routines,’ she says. ‘More consumers are shying away from things like chemicals in the products and techniques they use. As well as this, many crystals hold an energy healing vibration which can relax, soothe, uplift and rejuvenate.’
