Known for their wide range of healing properties, crystals have been used in the world of wellness since ancient times. Crystals can be used in a variety of ways, like putting citrine in the bottom of a cup and pouring coffee over it in order to start your day in balance, or rose quartz as a desk accessory for attracting love and avoiding headaches. But most recently, skin and beauty lines have started including crystals in beauty products for increasing energy, positive vibes and supporting physical appearance.
Crystal-infused beauty products have been named the beauty trend of 2017, so if you’re looking to add a new level of energy and a little extra sparkle to your daily look, consider trying a few of our gem-featuring favorites:
Jewel Organics Skincare: Jewel is a skincare line by a Minnesota-based esthetician with a passion for holistic healing and crystal vibes. The Jewel Organics skincare line is a four-step system that features crystal as a key ingredient. It’s a favorite for brightening skin and preventing aging, and will have your skin soft and glowy in no time.
Glossier Highlighter: Glossier is a cult classic. The New York-based company is always on the look-out for innovative beauty ideas, so it doesn’t surprise us that they tapped crystal as an ingredient. Give your everyday makeup routine an extra glow with the Glossier Haloscope highlighter, infused with various crystal extracts including quartz, topaz and moonstone. Each highlighter features varying healing properties to help achieve healthy, sun-kissed looking skin.
The Mindful Manicure Nail Polish: Hailing from the UK, this female-driven brand has been going strong for nearly two decades. The Mindful Manicure is a long-wear nail polish that’s infused with real gemstones to provide a mood enhancing iridescent and opalescent finish. The varnish is offered in a variety of eye-catching colors and is said to have a special spiritual effect when worn.
