Balance. I don’t think it’s easy to truly achieve balance in life – despite good intentions, things happen. Your cat gets sick and throws up all over. Your kids make bad choices and come to you for help. Your spouse has a difficult day and is in a terrible mood. While it may be a challenge to stay centered and calm, keeping your wellness at the top of that ‘important things to do’ list is essential. samples
I truly believe that one way to enhance your spirituality and ensure some balance in this often stressful world is purposeful spoiling. Yes, when you splurge on yourself you not only reinforce your self-worth, you also help everyone else in your life. Take care of your physical, mental, and emotional health, and you are a better mom, a better spouse, a better friend.
Kristals Skin Care, a skin care line featuring bioenergized formulas with concentrations of gemstones right in the products, is an excellent way to spoil yourself and enhance your spirituality. On their website you can search by skin care concern, product type, or gemstone. They also have astoundingly gorgeous jewelry that you can splurge on to match the gemstones that are infused into the skin care products you choose. Just think how amazing you will feel with beautiful skin AND this stunning necklace!
No question, Kristals Skin Care is expensive. But if it fits into your budget, this is a line that deserves your serious consideration. Some information from Kristals about their company:
For thousands of years, gemstones have been used for health and beauty around the world. Classical texts as well as astrological studies refer to the healing properties of gemstones and the positive influence of gems on the mind and body. Kristals Skincare takes this wisdom to a new level, bringing you concentrations of precious and semiprecious gemstones and metals known to create protective fields around the body and blending them with powerful botanicals, naturally effective herbal essences and oils, and the best scientific breakthroughs in skincare for every skin type. This harmonious combination offers highly beneficial changes to your mental, emotional and physical states. With just a single application of these gemstone skincare products, your skin will look smoother, firmer, refreshed and rejuvenated. Everyday use will result in continuous improvement in the tone and texture of your skin over time. Discover for yourself how gemstones’ natural energy is the perfect way to restore radiance, giving you skin that’s softer, suppler and luminously beautiful.
Kristals Skin Care features elegant formulas in beautiful packaging. As I mentioned the products are quite spendy, but they work on many levels. I have been testing the amethyst products. Is amethyst the gemstone you need in your skin care products? It is a match for you if:
There are two AMETHYST products that work together to purify, brighten, and smooth skin: the AMETHYST Oxygen Instant Energizing Reviving Treatment ($419.95) and the AMETHYST Oxygen Instant Energizing Activating Serum ($299.95). These two very different products work together in perfect harmony – in fact, you need both for the full effect of the skin care.
The Kristals Skin Care AMETHYST Oxygen Instant Energizing Reviving Treatment is an exfoliating gel that smells like ozone. It has a combination of sodium bicarbonate, pro-vitamin B5, and vitamin E that work along with the natural minerals in the amethyst to purify, detoxify, and revitalize skin. This gel exfoliates, moisturizes, and heals the skin. It helps skin generate healthy cells and fights free radicals, resulting in brighter skin and less wrinkles.
The yin to the Oxygen Instant Energizing Reviving Treatment’s yang is the Oxygen Instant Activating Serum. The serum also has amethyst, which provides the natural mineral complex, along with lactic acid (AHA) for exfoliation and collagen production, and chamomile, lemon balm, and green tea to calm and heal skin. The serum is ONLY for use with the gel, not for use by itself.
This pampering skin care treatment starts with clean, dry skin. You smooth a thin layer of the gel on and the gel has tiny crystals inside that gently exfoliate as you massage it in for about a minute. Next, you add a few drops of the Oxygen Instant Activating Serum on top of the gel. The two products gently combine and create a white foam that has a warming effect on skin. It’s really pretty neat. The serum and gel together make a wonderful oxygen cocktail for skin, and the serum dissolves the crystals so their ingredients are fully absorbed.
After massaging in the white foaminess for a minute or so, just wipe it off with a warm washcloth then follow with your regular cleanser. I find that my skin feels absolutely amazing afterward. A little moisturizer over that, and skin is smooth, happy, and glowing. Just knowing that amethyst promotes tranquility, spiritual awareness, clarity, and intuition makes every treatment feel so special. My skin is cleansed and calmed and so is my entire being.
Kristals Cosmetics also offers an amethyst-based moisturizing cream that I am testing, and I will have that review up soon. In the meantime, if your budget allows I definitely recommend the Amethyst Oxygen Instant Energizing Reviving Treatment and Oxygen Instant Activating Serum to treat not just your skin, but also your mind, body, and soul. – Lisa
