The 5 Best Crystals for Boosting Your Mood

People turn to healing crystals for a variety of reasons. Some provide warmth and love; others bring clear thinking and knowledge. And the skincare and beauty researchers at Kristals Cosmetics and other skincare companies harness their powers for your skin and overall well-being.

Perhaps one of the greatest powers of crystals, however, is simply their ability to enhance your mood. With that in mind, here are five crystals that seem to have the biggest impact in that arena.

The 5 Best Crystals for Boosting Your Mood

#1 Rose Quartz

Calming and soothing, the pink hues of rose quartz can wrap you in warmth and bring about feelings of harmony and love. If you’re trying to heal from a broken or troubled relationship, rose quartz is capable of bringing that peace to you.

#2 Aventurine

Though it’s available in several colors, the green shade of aventurine is traditionally known as a stone of luck. It will make you feel more fortunate and confident simply by carrying it around with you. Overall, the luck imparted by aventurine can lead to improved self-esteem and a better sense of one’s worth.

#3 Amethyst

Amethyst is a crystal that answers to a higher power. In practice, it boosts your mood by lending clarity, a heightened consciousness and an end to confusion. If stress and anxiety are constants on your heart and mind, then amethyst can lend a helping hand. Here’s a review on the New Spirit Journal on how it benefits your skin, too.

Why Gemstones Became Huge in Cosmetics

There’s no question that there are some dubious, questionable and downright strange approaches to skincare and cosmetic routines. For example, celebrities such as Kate Middleton and Gwyneth Paltrow have been known to use products with bee venom in their skincare routine, while Kim Kardashian has done a facial with her own blood.

At first glance, gemstones in cosmetics seem to be just another fad along these lines. But as the skincare and beauty researchers at Kristals Cosmetics and other companies began to examine the power of these stones, they began to find real, tangible results for your skin. Here’s how they can help.

#1 Amethyst Detoxifies and Purifies
This semiprecious gemstone in cosmetics seems to draw toxins and other impurities out of the skin, while at the same time boosting the body’s natural antioxidant potential. The end result is a base ingredient for skincare products that helps detoxify, purify and revitalize the skin. This makes amethyst a star gemstone for cosmetics.

#2 Amber Evens Out Skin Tone
This smooth, organically formed gemstone can be ground into a fine powder that has a number of powerful properties when used in cosmetics. In particular, amber appears to have a balancing effect, diminishing the appearance of dark spots and helping with pigmentation issues by evening out the skin tone.

#3 Pearl Promotes Healthy Cell Growth
The gemstone of the sea also appears to be quite useful when ground into a powder for cosmetics and other skincare products. Pearl has been traditionally known as a powerful stimulator of cell and tissue growth. When it comes to the skin, this occurs in the form of collagen and elastin to promote healthy, youthful-looking skin.

#4 Rose Quartz Stimulates the Immune System
This semi-precious gemstone has been used as a healer for thousands of years. In cosmetics, rose quartz seems to have immune-boosting potential, while also promoting healthy cell growth. It’s why Kristals Cosmetics and other companies turn to this powerful gemstone in their cosmetics.

As it turns out, some of these metaphysical properties of crystals on beauty also translate to real, tangible properties, in the form of crystals used in skincare and beauty products.

Why Gold is Great for Anti-Aging

Gold has been used as a beauty enhancer since at least the time of the ancient Egyptians. And while modern studies have yet to prove the effect of gold on your skin, dozens of people, as well as skincare and beauty companies, swear by the stuff.

In practice, gold as part of your skincare and beauty routine seems to help fight the signs of aging in a number of different ways. We spoke with the skincare and beauty researchers at Kristals Cosmetics to find out how.

#1 It May Have Anti-Inflammatory Properties
Several medical experts believe that gold fights the signs of inflammation in the body to help prevent disease and other problems. In fact, many doctors will prescribe gold as a treatment for the pain of rheumatoid arthritis. Some experts think these same anti-inflammatory properties can fight the free radicals that lead to wrinkles and other signs of aging.

#2 Gold Nanoparticles Help with Healing
The newest technology in gold is known as nanoparticles, which is essentially the ability to break down gold into very tiny particles. A recent study of gold nanoparticles found that they helped with wound healing on the skin.

#3 Gold May Enhance the Ability of Other Ingredients
Along with its own specific anti-aging properties, many believe the gold serves as an excellent carrier for other effective skincare ingredients, thus enhancing their abilities. For example, Kristals Cosmetics adds ingredients like vitamin E, Retinyl Palmitate and others to its gold-based skincare products.

#4 It Makes You Glow
One indisputable fact about gold skincare products is that they impart a healthy, radiant glow. Many report that their skin positively beams with radiance after a gold-based facial or other treatment. And that on its own can serve as an anti-aging property, at least in the short-term.

How to Use Gold for Skincare

While gold has long been a symbol of power and, in some cultures, perfection, it’s not just a fancy ingredient to add to a skincare product. A number of studies have shown that gold delivers a massive number of antioxidants to the skin and is a superior exfoliant. Gold particles also tend to penetrate well into the deeper layers of the skin. Knowing this, product formulators at Kristals Cosmetics developed gold-based skincare products that maximize the element’s skincare properties while combining it with proven skincare superstar ingredients like peptides and antioxidants to take advantage of how deeply gold particles can penetrate the skin.
