Crystals can be used for a variety of reasons, such as clearing energy or as ornamental earth-grown chachki’s that help to set ‘a vibe’.
But one crystal use you may not have been aware of, is that many cutting-edge skin care formulations are now utilising these hunks of mineral to target real-life skin issues.
Don’t believe us? Gems like ruby, diamond and malachite are just some of the glam inclusions in these four skin-refining formulas that retexture, refresh and revitalise.
For a gleaming complexion that beams just as bright as the jewels responsible for your glow, here are some crystal-infused skin care picks:
Goldfaden MD Doctor's Scrub
This ruby-infused scrub polishes away build-up and dead skin cells for a smooth even complexion, while antioxidant-rich red tea extract supplies skin with a glow-boosting shot of vitamins C and E, as well as carotene for clarity. But it doesn’t stop there; this potent exfoliator also contains seaweed extract and hyaluronic acid which actively rehydrates and plumps skin while you scrub.
TATA HARPER Refreshing Cleanser
Specifically formulated to gently and chemically exfoliate even the most sensitive of skin, this cleanser uses biocompatible crystals , plus pomegranate extract and pink clay, to simultaneously hydrate, slough away surface impurities, encourage cell turnover and reduce build-up for clear, unclogged pores. AKA this hardworking cleanser is your one-way ticket to healthy, maintainable skin.
Omorovicza Illuminating Moisturiser
Ruby particles are the secret behind this illuminating moisturiser; the fine shimmer adds luminosity, blurring wrinkles and imperfections in the process. Apple pectin ensures lasting hydration throughout the day, while Omorovicza’s patented healing concentrate firms skin for a beaming youthful and supple complexion.
LA MER The Lip Balm
La Mer has paired their legendary miracle broth with smoothing, plumping and hydrating malachite to reinvigorate lips. Say hello to a plush kisser after this copper gluconate-infused balm perks up your collagen production and increases skin elasticity. *chefs kiss*.
