Trend #2: Gem-Infused Skincare
Skeptics, be warned — if New Age isn’t your thing, you’re going to want to skip over this trend. Fuelled by celebs like Gwyneth Paltrow (whose Goop blog recommended “8 essential crystals” for “energy” and other purported benefits), 2017 saw gems making their way into skincare in a big way. This despite the fact that, as the New York Times pointed out, “little, if any, scientific evidence exists to substantiate crystals’ efficacy.” If you still want to give crystals a shot, some of the popular stones being used include amethyst — which, it’s claimed, is good for inflammation — while malachite and tourmaline are said to have “detoxification” and “energizing” properties.
