Light Up Your Face with Diamonds and Pearls: Topical Minerals for the Skin

Light up your face with diamonds and pearls and get the results we’re all after: ageless, healthy, glowing skin.

Both diamond and pearls have reflective and iridescent properties that can bounce around light that can hide wrinkles and fine lines. Add to that, pearls in cosmetics are a white powder that can effectively lighten skin upon application so you will see an immediate improvement in the look of dark spots and uneven tones in your complexion.

Let's take a look at the beauty benefits of diamonds and pearls.

CLEANSE AND COVER WITH DIAMONDS IN SKIN CARE 

Diamonds in skin care will be presented in the form of diamond powder, and this powder is becoming increasingly popular as an ingredient in skin care products. Diamond powder in skin care can act as an exfoliant that will help you polish your skin without causing harm.

When you exfoliate, you are opening the pores which, in turn, allows vitamins, nutrients such as antioxidants and anti-inflammatories, moisturizers, serums, mists and anti-aging ingredients to enter more efficiently. Simply put, diamond powder feeds your skin by facilitating the intake of nutrition, and there is a link between nutrition and skin aging, says the National Institutes for Health (NIH).

Diamond powder is frequently used in products that are meant to remain on skin as a brightener as well, together with another mineral, mica. When they work together, the diamond powder and mica sit on the skin and disguise fine lines and other imperfections. They reflect and bounce light, manipulating it to even skin tone and create a youthful effect (also called a blurring effect).

DIAMONDS IN SKINCARE: THE HISTORY

The human obsession with diamonds dates back to the 4th century B.C. Diamonds were thought to have powers, and were valued for their strength and brilliance, and their ability to refract light and engrave metal. Diamonds were worn as adornments and used as cutting tools and were often included in rings and other jewelry.

Then in 2011 actress Mila Kunis made the news for her pricey diamond-and-ruby facial. Over time, people realized the benefits of diamond powder in skin care, so their inclusion in skin care is no longer just for celebrities and the ultra-rich. Diamond powder is now in serums, masks, BB creams, nail polish, and even shampoos on the market.

SHIMMERY PEARL BENEFITS FOR SKIN CARE

Pearl is well-known in China as a beauty tonic. It’s an important player in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The bulk of the pearl is a substance called calcium carbonate and it’s surrounded by a dozen amino acids, the building blocks of proteins, as well as minerals like magnesium, zinc, iron, copper, selenium and silicon.

Pearl is used as a powder as an ingredient in skin creams to help heal blemishes and other skin problems. It’s also an anti-aging ingredient to fight wrinkles and sagging. Pearl powder promotes the regeneration of new skin and makes the skin smooth, elastic, and naturally beautiful. It can also prevent the development of melanin, which causes freckles and dark spots.

Nacre is just another name for mother-of-pearl and this is what gives the powder a glowing, iridescent quality. It’s a organic substance secreted by the mollusk. Nacre is a strong and resilient material that is also lightweight and transparent.

OTHER TOPICAL MINERALS TO BEAUTIFY YOUR SKIN

Other beneficial minerals for skin care include:

  • Sea salt: All life originates in the sea because our bodies contain the same concentrations of minerals and nutrients. Sea salt is produced by evaporating ocean water or saltwater from lakes.

Sea salt contains traces of some essential minerals like sodium, chloride, potassium, calcium, magnesium, copper, and zinc, and stabilizes our blood pressure, blood sugar levels, and improves nerve cell communication. Sea salt aids in the absorption of nutrients, prevents muscle cramping, and gets rid of sinus congestion, among other things.

For the skin, it can:

  1. Exfoliate. The coarse granular texture of sea salt helps remove dead skin cells, improves blood circulation, and promotes skin rejuvenation.
  2. Improve skin barrier function
  3. Moisturize
  4. Reduce roughness and inflammation

All of those abilities are provided by the magnesium content. These properties can help prevent premature aging, reducing dark circles and treating eczema and acne.

  • Mica: This is shiny silicate mineral with a layered structure. It’s found as tiny scales in granite and other rocks, or as crystals. About a decade ago it became a popular ingredient in facial powders, and now it’s combined with diamond powder to create that reflective quality.
  • Silica: Silica is the natural form of a mineral called “silicon.” It’s a hard, unreactive, colorless compound that occurs as the mineral quartz and as a principal constituent of sandstone and other rocks.
  • Vegetables: Vegetable and fruit ingredients in skincare are often full of beneficial skin minerals such as silica, potassium and magnesium. For example, cucumbers nourish the skin and possess hydrating and astringent properties.with water, vitamin C and caffeic acid. It calms skin irritations, reduces swelling, and aids burns and other skin problems.
