Can Applying Gems to Your Skin Make You Look Younger?

Gemstone therapy isn’t exactly a breaking trend in the spa world, as the healing powers of the minerals have long been thought to be a major modality when it comes to energy work and vibrational therapy. But now, there’s a new contender coming on the block—in the form of skin care.
Enter Gemstone Organic, a completely, as the name suggests, organic line (everything is also handcrafted, food-grade edible and raw) that blends plants, minerals and waters. Sure, it sounds like a simple mix, but alchemist and founder Debra Haugen also uses gem elixirs in the formulas, in a combo she says preserves the vibrational healing powers of the stones—and results in the major skin benefit of giving glowing skin.

The star product, Gem Juice Hydrosols, are like magical multitasking mists you can use for pretty much anything. They refresh makeup midday, act as a bit of an astringent/toner, work particularly well on skin post-shave, and have aromatherapy benefits that not only smell amazing, but also are powerful when you spray them on linens or in the air. They’re made from 100-percent plant hydrosols (floral water) then infused with gemstones that you can actually see—and hear when you shake the bottle. Even if you aren’t a big believer in energy work, you’ll be a believer in how good and glowy they make your skin look after a few quick spritzes.
