Science has shown that skin cells use circadian genes to detect the passage of time and determine their daily rhythm of repair and regeneration. This delicate cycle can be upset by UV rays and pollutants, leading to dull skin and wrinkles, while also reducing skin cells’ ability to repair themselves.
Instead of using harmful petrochemicals, SLS (sodium laurel sulfate) and paraben-based beauty and healthcare products to protect against skin aging, you should consider using natural based products like ancient cultures did.
There aren’t many ways to stop time, but a natural substance might be able to slow it down. Gels and lotions infused with the gemstone known as aventurine can turn slow down the clock on connective tissues, providing anti-aging benefits that come from the skin-protecting power of this gemstone.
Aventurine comes in many different colors in nature, including the typical green but also yellow, orange, blue, grey, or even brown. In terms of healing effects, aventurine has many positive traits. Aventurine benefits the thymus gland and nervous system. It balances blood pressure and stimulates the metabolism, even lowering cholesterol. Aventurine has an anti-inflammatory effect and eases skin eruptions, allergies, migraines, and soothes the eyes. It heals lungs, sinuses, heart, and muscular and urogenital systems.
In a spiritual sense, aventurine is associated with the heart chakra (which is depicted as green in color), and is considered a stone of luck. This gem is often used in abundance rituals and is sometimes kept in cash registers or piggy banks.
In Japan, facial tools made from green aventurine are reported to gently smooth the skin and neutralize the effects of electromagnetic pollution on skin – these offending rays come from computers, televisions, and other electronic equipment. You could also try putting a small tumbled (polished) aquamarine stone right in your bottle of toner, cleanser, or body spray.
Of course, wearing aventurine is always an option, and this stone can be found fashioned into beads or even carved amulets in varying shapes. Look for jewelry incorporating aventurine in the color that appeals to you most.
