Gemstones for healing are a hot ingredient in skincare products right now. And, when paired with other helpful ingredients like peptides, pro-vitamin B5, vitamin C and niacinamide, they can make a real difference in the look and feel of your skin. That’s why the skincare and beauty researchers at Kristals Cosmetics have been mixing gems like diamonds, amethysts, rose quartz and others into their cosmetic formulations.
But there’s a secondary benefit to gemstones that goes beyond skin deep. And that’s their ability to promote healing. Here are five gemstones you’ll want to check out for their unique healing properties.
Gemstones for Healing
As the hardest of the gemstones, it’s not surprising that diamonds can exude a feeling of power. This makes them a great ingredient for both exfoliating and strengthening the skin. But beyond that, the feeling of strength and dominance created by diamonds can bring power to other parts of the body, as well, such as the nails and eyes.
