The Surprising Skincare Benefits of Gems

Precious gems and healing crystals – once considered “New Age-y” or meant only for the ultra-rich – are turning up in profusion in skincare products for the rest of us. And it’s about time! Beauty-conscious consumers are discovering that the ancient powers of gems to help heal, protect and invigorate skin makes these products must-haves for every skincare routine. Here’s a short guide to what’s behind the skin-loving benefits of gems and crystals:

Diamonds: Whether you think about success, wealth, romance or the incredible hardness of this popular gemstone, your skin will say thank you. Diamonds aren’t just for engagement rings anymore! They’re great for keeping skin strong by preventing the break-down of collagen, helping nourishing oxygen and antioxidants reach skin cells and for exfoliating to reveal your natural glow.

Garnet: This deep, passionately red stone has a softer side. It’s an effective exfoliant that helps slough off dead skin so that your youngest, brightest skin can shine.

Pearls:  Every woman needs a string of pearls to pair with that perfect little black dress. Pearl-infused skincare products work hard to help control oil, keep skin hydrated and flexible and fight destructive free radicals along with antioxidant ingredients to fight aging.

Ruby: Strong and in charge, ruby lends sparkle and strength to mascara and powder when used in beauty and skincare products.

Sapphire: The stone of power and spirituality, sapphire’s got a protective quality. In skincare products, it helps soothe inflamed skin, cleanse it and minimize damage caused by the rays of the sun and environmental contaminants.

Rose quartz: This beautiful “love stone” casts a lovely pink glow on hearts, moods – and skin, of course! The benefits of rose quartz for skincare and beauty include that it can skin tone, soften and smooth, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and promote a soft and natural glow.

Amber: Actually ancient tree resin that’s hardened to a golden, gem-like hardness, amber’s reputation for purifying everything around it extends to the skin as well. Amber-infused beauty and skincare products help minimize enlarged pores and fine lines and even skin tone.
