Crystals For Skincare

Updated: Dec 6, 2021

When I started making my own skincare products in 2011, it came naturally to me to experiment and include Crystals in my formulations.

One thing I remember well, is me doing a google search about skincare products with Crystals and I could not find absolutely anything on it, back then.

The only thing I found were those beautiful soaps 🧼 that looks like Quartz Crystals, some even having stones inside them. I absolutely adore them but they’re so beautiful, that you actually don’t want to use them. Lol

But aside from that, I did not find skincare products made with Crystals.

I also remember the day I posted here images of me making my Anti-wrinkle Crystal Eye Cream with the Crystals visible inside the open jars, and noticing in the comments people saying it was a great idea and if that will be the next thing for Nerium? I think that was the name of the company they mentioned. 😉

Fast forward to this day many years later, now the market is flooded with skincare products that have incorporated Crystals in them, and let me tell you something, I’m happy about that because I genuinely think that Crystals and Gemstones can be of great aid to our skincare routine, and that we can experience positive and noticeable results when using them.

Below I will share some additional information with you that I hope you will find interesting even helpful.

Why Using Quartz Crystals For Skincare

I started making my very own Skincare products in 2011 out of pure frustration and concern for the way I was looking back then, you can read why here. I was already working with Crystals using them for healing even before I had the idea of making my own skincare creams. Aside of using them for healing, I also use Quartz Crystals to energize my food and water, so when I made my first facial cream, incorporating crystals came naturally.

I remember searching online for Skincare made with Quartz Crystals and gemstones and I found absolutely nothing on the market. I guess no one have thought of this before? I thought to myself. I remember posting on my social media about my Anti-Wrinkle Crystal Eye Cream when I made it, and have people commenting on what a great idea that was and wondering if this will be the next trend that companies will jump on. Fast forward to today it's clear that adding Crystals to beauty products has become a trend and one that's here to stay.

But Can Crystals Really Be Of Benefit?

Healing Crystals and Gemstones are not only beautiful, and mystical, but also profound "energy medicine" tools, which have been used for centuries throughout all cultures, religions and empires. Crystals and stones have been used since the dawn of civilization. Crystals bring amazing benefits of healing, to those who use them. The healing powers of crystals have been well documented in almost every system of holistic medicine, including Ayurveda, Chinese, Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Hopi Native American and even biblical texts from the Old Testament.

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. Legend said that Cleopatra bathed in water infused with rose quartz because of its strong healing and anti-ageing benefits and that in the Nile, Egyptian goddesses used tumbled rose quartz and would splash the water on their faces to remove fine lines and wrinkles.

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.

It all has to do with vibration.

Every natural substance vibrates at a specific frequency: The human body for example vibrates at around 62 Hertz, the earth vibrates at 7.83 Hertz, and crystals vibrate at significantly higher frequencies, quartz tops the charts at 32,768 Hertz, think about that for a second.

Crystals and Gemstones vibrate at a higher frequency than our bodies and release mild electrical charges which can heat or cool the skin's surface. This can help boost blood circulation, calm puffiness and aid lymphatic drainage as well as helping to amplify the effects of other products, driving ingredients towards our weaker cells when used in skin care. Making them extremely effective and powerful ingredients to target common skin issues such as redness and signs of aging. When crystals are part of the ingredients in your formulas, they act as a conduit for healing, helping your cells thrive on an energetic level.

The minerals found in crystals can have anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, and are also associated with firming, regenerating, and toning.

Whether you are experiencing dryness, itchiness, redness, puffiness, dullness, or acne – these conditions can potentially be improved with a little help from the right crystals!
