Crystals have been used since ancient times for their ability to keep skin looking young and healthy.
Here are 4 of the most effective anti ageing crystals that can be used for massage or made into elixirs for washing your skin and hair.
- Rose quartz baths and facials have been used as an anti ageing treatment since ancient Egyptian times. Using a rose quartz roller to massage the face is said to remove stress in facial muscles which can cause us to look older. It is also said to reduce puffiness in the face and around the eyes caused by fluid retention from the lymphatic system. Rose quartz helps to drain lymphatic fluid allowing toxins to be released and leaving the skin glowing.
- Bloodstone aids blood and lymphatic flow and purifies the blood, removing harmful toxins which cause acne and other skin problems.
- Jade has been used since ancient times in China for removing blockages in the meridians to allow chi and blood circulation to flow better. Wands can be used to massage the face to reduce puffiness in the eyes, remove toxins and relax the nervous system. Its cooling effects can also re-energise and tighten the skin.
- Aventurine has anti inflammatory properties and has a calming, healing effect on the skin. It can be effective for healing skin break outs when used as an elixir.
