In recent years (i.e. as I’ve gotten older), I’ve become a bit obsessed with crystals, gems and stones. For the uninitiated, these precious stones ward off bad vibes while reinforcing you with positive energy. In a way, they’re a bit like amulets.
But their uses don’t just stop at protection. Some are known to have skincare properties – for example, the semi-precious gemstone carnelian is supposed to help prevent acne when you massage it onto your face.
But perhaps you might be more familiar with jade. Since olden days, the stone has been believed to have detoxifying and healing properties. In the past years, it has been infused into skincare products or used as facial massagers, including facial rollers.
In Singapore, you can try Sulwhasoo’s Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Treatment, which uses the benefits of jade. Here’s how it went for me!
The 80-minute Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Treatment ($260) is available at Sulwhasoo‘s boutiques at ION Orchard, Capitol Building, and TANG Plaza.
