Want more crystals in your life? With the popularity of crystals, they are appearing in more and more beauty products, and giving yourself a crystal facial is a great way to add crystals to your beauty routine along with organic, natural botanical products.
Step 1: Start with a clean, dry face.
Use your favorite cleanser and give your face a good washing. I like to use a Clarisonic cleansing brush - I've used one for years, and whatever facial cleanser I'm enjoying at the moment. Some to try include:
-Herbivore Botanicals Pink Clay Cleansing Soap (no crystals but a really nice soap).
-Pacifica Crystal Foam Sparkling Clean Face Wash infused with rose quartz
-Sjal Balans Gemstone Deep Pore Cleanser infused with pearl, silver, gold, and rose quartz.
Step 2: Use a crystal-infused mask.
There are a few of these available. Two of my favorites:
-Sjal Kashmir Saphir Perfecting Mask with gold, platinum, sapphire, and copper
-Herbivore Botanicals Brighten Pineapple + Gemstone Mask with white tourmaline.
Rinse the mask thoroughly. If you want, rinse with water you've infused with rose quartz and clear quartz crystals.
Step 3: Relax with a crystal grid.
Lie quietly for 10 to 15 minutes with small crystals on each cheekbone, one your brow bone, on your third eye, on the ridge below your nose/above your lip, and on your chin. Try nontoxic crystals such as clear or rose quartz, amethyst, aquamarine, or citrine, all with anti-aging properties. Play some nice relaxing music, breathe deeply, and enjoy the space.
Step 4: Spritz with a toner.
Try one of these:
-Pacifica Micellar Gem Infused Micellar Water Tonic infused with rose quartz
-Herbivore Botanicals Green Tea and Jasmine Balancing Toner (no crystals but smells fabulous)
-Aquarian Soul Rose Quartz Toning Mist (infused with rose quartz)
Step 5: Add some facial oil or serum.
Use a facial oil lightly on your face, neck, and decolletage. Some favorites:
This is my favorite step, and I use both a gua sha tool and a facial roller every morning. I keep my facial roller in the freezer (it's lovely), and I follow a standard gua sha facial massage using light pressure on my face and neck. This massages in the facial oil or serum and helps drain lymph fluids and remove puffiness. It wakes me up and feels great.
Where can you get the tools?
You can use a gem-infused moisturizer or your favorite. Some I love include:
I like to keep my eye serum in the fridge so it's cool when I use it. My favorite?
