Gemstones and crystals have been used for thousands of years as a means to improve energy and mood, ward off negative vibes, cleanse the mind, promote inner peace, and more. More recently, they are starting to pop up here and there in skincare products – here’s why.
The Benefits of Gemstones in Your Skincare
In a metaphysical sense, gemstones and crystals are known to have high vibrational properties. This energy supposedly travels toward the weaker energy or cells in the body, and then helps to restore them functionally. This plays into skincare because a happy, healthy body on the inside typically translates to a healthier appearance on the outside.
What’s more is that, hypothetically, when you infuse gemstones in skincare like moisturizers, serums, etc, you’re delivering their energy straight to you, and every day, which heightens their healing properties.
Beyond the metaphysical, gemstones also have more obvious and tangible benefits. When they are ground into a powder and infused into skincare, they provide gentle exfoliation for the skin. Gemstone powders added to serums and moisturizers (in other words, skincare that sits on top of the skin all day) also provide an extra touch of radiance.
Infusing gemstones into skincare has become a growing trend these days, but one brand stands out among the rest for their expansive gemstone lines and ultra-luxurious formulas – Kristals Cosmetics.
Kristals Cosmetics Gemstone-Infused Skincare
Kristals Cosmetics incorporates a variety of precious minerals and gems in their skincare, from amber and pearl, amethyst and sapphire, gold and even diamonds! Since every gem has its own set of benefits for the mind, body, and skin, Kristals Cosmetics created separate skincare regimens, each based on a key gemstone. From there, they’ve combined botanicals, herbal essences and oils, and the latest scientific advancements to create effective, multi-tasking formulas, including their most luxurious line – their Diamond Anti-Gravity skincare.
A Diamond-Infused Skincare Regimen
Out of all the gemstones, diamonds are known to be “the stone of invincibility” due to their strength. From an energy standpoint, they are said to promote feelings of inspiration and intuition, while their more tangible skincare benefits include the ability to both exfoliate and brighten. Taking advantage of diamond’s powers, Kristals Cosmetics formulated an entire diamond-infused skincare line that includes a gentle foaming cleanser, firming serum, and – my favorite – a magnetic mask! It also incorporates Progeline, a tetra-peptide that prevents collagen degradation to help reduce and prevent sagging and wrinkles, hence providing the ‘anti-gravity’ effects.
DIAMOND Anti-Gravity Magnetic Mask
Kristals Cosmetics’ exclusive DIAMOND Anti-Gravity Magnetic Mask combines diamonds with magnetic healing. How exactly does it work? Diamond powder helps exfoliate the skin, while magnetic powder increases cellular regeneration by bringing more oxygen and nutrients to the skin.
The whole application process is simple (and fun!). You start by applying the mask to clean, dry skin, leave it on for seven minutes, then remove using a tissue-wrapped magnet bar. This reveals a layer of organic oil extracts, which you then massage into the skin as a hydrating second treatment.
I have to say, the magnetic step of the mask feels incredibly weird yet satisfying at the same time. It’s definitely the most fun mask in my collection! The ‘after treatment’ is the cherry on top, adding hydrating while also exfoliating and smoothing out the skin.
DIAMOND Anti-Gravity Gentle Foaming Milk
The next step is to cleanse with the DIAMOND Anti-Gravity Gentle Foaming Milk. Though super gentle, this milk-to-foam cleanser removes all my makeup (even stubborn eye liners/mascaras) while leaving my skin feeling soft, soothed, and balanced.
DIAMOND Anti-Gravity Firming Serum
The final step in the diamond skincare routine is to apply the DIAMOND Anti-Gravity Firming Serum, which contains diamond powder and Progeline, along with Adipofill, which fills in and plumps lines and wrinkles, reduces sagging, and even targets fat deposits on the upper cheekbones.
Together, these three products are a real treat to use, especially in the evenings. Beyond the enticing notion of applying diamonds all over your skin and possibly reaping their metaphysical benefits in the process, Kristals Cosmetics formulas also offer a luxurious experience through their divine scent and naturally effective ingredients that hydrate, smooth, soften, and plump.
After using the entire system for four weeks, my skin is definitely looking smoother and even plumper and firmer, particularly around my eye area (a primary concern of mine). I’m looking forward to using these luxurious formulas for as long as the bottles last me, for their skincare benefits, and also for that little extra taste of luxury in the mornings and evenings that I can’t help but indulge in!
The Perfect Starter Set
Want to experience gemstone-infused skincare without making a huge splurge? Check out the Kristals Cosmetics Rock Crystal collection – their most affordable line that serves as a great introduction to gemstone-infused skin and body care!
Kristals Cosmetics Rock Crystal-Infused Skincare
Rock Crystal is known to be one of the most powerful healing stones, and amplifies whichever energy or intent it receives. Whereas in skincare, it is said to have cleansing, moisturizing, and protecting abilities, essentially covering all the basic skincare needs. Hence why Kristals Cosmetics offers both a facial regimen and a body care line that’s rock crystal-infused, ranging from facial moisturizers and cleansers, to body polishes and butters.
A great place to start is their Rock Crystal Supreme Body Butter – because we all need full body hydration, especially in the winter! Not to mention, it feels and smells absolutely divine – the scent ‘Love Spells’ is incredibly exotic, warm, and comforting. The butter also features a light whipped texture that melts into skin on contact, smoothing out even my driest areas with no greasy residue. Only the smallest amount is needed to get deep hydration, so a large-size jar is going to last a long time!
