HARPERS BAZAAR SINGAPORE | JANUARY 6TH, 2019
Whether you believe in the healing powers of crystals or simply love the cooling and depuffing benefits of a rose quartz face roller, most of us aren’t strangers to crystals. And while it brought an element of spirituality into self-care in 2018, it is set to elevate self-care—or skincare, in particular—as more skincare products will be infused with crystals. An indispensable part of beauty rituals in ancient civilisations, crystals are said to have healing powers. This is because crystals are essentially minerals which contain tiny electrical charges. As a result, when they are finely ground and whipped into skincare products, these tiny electrical charges can enhance the product penetration into skin or increase cellular energy for accelerated results and healthier skin. Get your hands on Swiss-based luxury skincare brand, Nazan Schnapp’s Sublime Hydrating Treatment Essence, about $136 for 100ml. Delicately scented and packed with skin-loving ingredients like hyaluronic acid, Centella Asiatica, Rose de Mai, peony and hibiscus extracts, this toning mist is supercharged with rose quartz to replenish skin’s moisture and stimulate cellular turnover for plump and glowing skin.
