If your complexion is looking dull or not as radiant as it used to be, you may need to try a new product to restore the natural brightness of your skin! Introducing stone crop cleansing oil, a revolutionary product that removes impurities as well as brightens the overall look of your face. This product should be used once or twice daily as your main facial cleanser, and should be followed with your normal moisturizer. For those with oily skin, you may want to try the cleansing oil first without additional moisturizer to see how the results look. 

What Is Stone Crop?

You may have heard of stone crop from its inclusion in a lot of Eminence Organics skincare products or other organic/natural beauty products. Stone crop is a type of succulent plant that is extremely hardy in both wet and dry areas due to its ability to retain moisture. It is used in skincare products because of its moisturizing properties that gives the skin a refreshing glow. 

How Can Stone Crop Help Your Skin?

Stone crop’s moisture-retaining power is passed to your skin when used in facial products. Similarly, it has a brightening agent that naturally lightens pigmentation across the skin that is a powerful combatant to skin that has been looking dull lately. 

Some of the benefits stone crop can provide to your skin include:

  • Regenerates tired, dull skin
  • Lightens complexion by reducing pigmentation
  • Removes dirt and makeup completely from skin
  • Soothes sensitive skin

This is quite a powerful ingredient that miraculously is safe and beneficial to use for all skin types. However, you may need to adjust the rest of your skincare routine to accommodate this product in order to avoid over-moisturizing the skin. This could potentially cause breakouts if overdone, but should not be an issue for most skin types.

Other Ways to Brighten Your Complexion

If you don’t currently have a facial product with stone crop available, you may want to try some alternate ways to brighten your skin. It will take some introspection to determine what personal changes you may need to make in your lifestyle, but most of these adjustments are relatively easy to implement in your life!

Check out the following tips to brighten your skin!:

Consume Less Alcohol

Drinking alcohol dries out the skin and makes it look duller. While alcohol is not unhealthy in moderation (especially red wine), limiting your alcohol intake can do wonders for your complexion. 

Drink More Water

A tip that is beneficial for every skin type, drinking more water has shown to increase the health and look of the skin. Ideally, you should be drinking about a half-gallon of water (or more!) a day. This comes down to about 8 glasses of water spread out throughout the day. 

Get More Sleep

Easier said than done, we know! However, it has been proven that a well-rested person has healthier skin. Adults should be averaging around 7-8 hours of sleep per night, but no less than 6 for maximum healthy results. 

Exfoliate Regularly

Weekly or bi-weekly exfoliation is a great way to slough off dead/excess skin that is covering up bright and youthful skin underneath. It is not recommended to exfoliate every day so as not to irritate the skin which could cause redness. 

Eat Skin-Friendly Foods

It’s easy to say “eat healthy,” but there are certain types of food that are extremely beneficial for your skin, and can have a drastic impact on the look of your complexion. Specific for brightening purposes, add foods to your diet that contain lots of fatty acids such as fish (or take a fish oil supplement), nuts, etc. – fatty acids can directly help with increasing the production of collagen which makes the face appear more supple and fresh!
