, Gemstones have a long history of being used for health and healing of all types, often with a spiritual component to restore harmony and correct imbalances. But did you know that beyond the positive emotions and energies attributed to themcertain gemstones also seem to have skincare benefits to help with anti-aging and overall skin health?
I have always been fascinated by gemstones and really believe in their holistic impact on our balance, mood and well-being (one of my aunts in India is an astrologer & gemstone expert and she always has such interesting things to share about gems!) So, when I was introduced to the gemstone-infused beauty & skincare line Kristals Cosmetics, I couldn’t resist the urge to give it a try!
Kristals Cosmetics complements its gemstone-infused skincare products with leading-edge ingredients designed to pair perfectly with precious gems, including peptides, niacinamide and Vitamin C. Kristals has unlocked the holistically healing power of gemstones and precious metals like amber, diamond, gold and ruby to promote radiant skin with an extensive range of products including creams, masks and serums and even jewelry! On their website, you can search for beauty products containing a specific gemstone such as Aquamarine or Sapphire, or you can also search by your skin concerns like wrinkles or dark spots, depending on your individual needs.
I tried out the AMBER Multi-Vitamin C Dark Spot Corrector that delivers focused correction to uneven skin areas. This treatment contains a highly concentrated formulation of 10% Vitamin C that suppresses melanin synthesis and reduces existing melanin to lighten, brighten and correct tone, as well as boosting collagen production for a firmer, youthful texture. It works in harmony with antioxidant Vitamin E to fight free radicals and combat premature aging while the exclusive Amber Powder in the formula adds elasticity and provides lasting youth-boosting enhancement.
Kristals Cosmetics AMBER Multi-Vitamin C Dark Spot Corrector comes packaged in a squeeze tube with a pump that works well to dispense the amount of product required. The directions suggest to apply this concentrated formula onto affected areas morning and evening. I have quite a few acne scars and 2-3 dark spots on my cheeks, so I have been using this product as a spot treatment on those problem areas.
The formula has a lightweight lotion consistency and absorbs quickly without leaving any greasy residue. And a little goes a long way! After it dries in a few seconds, I use a hydrating serum or moisturizer on the whole face. I began using this product about 3 weeks ago and have applied it everyday since then. I am happy to report that I have already started seeing a difference! There is definitely an improvement in the appearance of two of my most noticeable dark spots and my skin looks brighter as well. I will continue using this dark spot corrector daily and hope to see my pesky brown spots fading away over the next few months!
Kristals Cosmetics AMBER Multi-Vitamin C Dark Spot Corrector can be purchased at kristals.com for $189.95. It is on the pricey side but worth trying out if are looking for a hydroquinone-free dark spot treatment that’s also gentle on the skin. You can also check out other products in the Kristals Cosmetics range according to your preferred gemstone and skincare concerns.
