Maybe it's the mystical effects of last month's "super blue blood moon," but we're feeling called to infuse our day-to-day lives with a little magic. And by "day-to-day lives," we mean our beauty kits.
When it's this dry and windy out, we'll take all the help we can get to keep our skin feeling dewy and fresh. And if that means charging crystals from time to time, you can count us in! That's especially true when one of our top beauty muses swears by the celestial trick. Doubters, read on — there just might be something to this woo-woo stuff.
Earthy beauty Kate Hudson recently took to Instagram to share a photo of her vanity table. "Charged," she wrote, to illustrate a photo of pretty stones basking in the glow of California sunshine.
But, the plot thickens. In addition to (presumably) using the crystals to amp up the positive vibes in her living space, Hudson incorporates them into her beauty routine. In her next Instagram snap, the actress and La Mer influencer wrote: "May seem crazy but don't underestimate putting your creams on crystals." Hudson went on to explain that she puts her favorite moisturizing product on crystals to "add a little extra energy."
Of course, the product in question also has ingredients that don't rely on magic to deliver a mighty dose of moisture. The Crème de la Mer Moisturizing Cream is made with a proprietary elixir called "Miracle Broth," which uses hand-harvested sea kelp and other ingredients to promote smooth, radiant, soft-as-a-rose-petal skin. Plus, as Hudson noted, a little bit of the uber thick, creamy stuff goes a long way. Loyal fans swear that just a dab of the cream makes their complexions glow. (With or without moonlight.)
Scroll down to shop the coveted product. Crystals are sold separately, but we'd venture to guess that the Miracle Broth contains a few good vibes of its own.
