Throughout history, professional healers have claimed that crystals vibrate at a much higher frequency than our bodies, which allows them to aid our lives in variety of ways. Gemstones are often used to help boost one’s mood, alleviate stress, restore harmony and even aid in physical health and bodily healing. But what happens when we use crystals and gemstones in our skincare? Lately, beauty experts and crystal healers have been combining the effects of gemstone healing and effective beauty products, resulting in the latest beauty buzz – gemstone skincare.
Using gemstones and crystals in your beauty routine not only takes care of your skin, but cares for your mind and spirit as well. Specialists all over the world have found the use of crystals in beauty to be so beneficial that many of them have been incorporating them into their own skincare routines.

Tourmaline is a grounding stone that is said to help protect against negative energies. In skincare, Tourmaline is said to be a revitalising ingredient that helps to draw out any pollutants that may have entered the skin. When used directly on the skin, tourmaline crystals heat up, making them effective exfoliators that help to increase circulation and make sure your other ingredients are doing more and going further.
