You may be wondering: Why use crystals in skin care in the first place? Well, they might not result in physical skin changes, but they are beneficial for your mind and spirit. “When you use crystals in conjunction with a beauty regimen, the added benefit is a level of intention,” Heather Askinosie, author of CRYSTAL365and Crystal Muse and co-founder of Energy Muse Jewelry, tells mbg.
Askinosie has been studying crystals and energy for over 20 years, and she has found that these gems (combined with mindfulness) can be especially powerful during certain moments in your self-care routine. “It’s amazing to see what happens to your face when you use a [gemstone] with the intention of releasing emotions,” Askinosie says.
