Luminescent Pearl Skin



Luminescent Pearl Skin

Pearls always captivate, stun, and mystify. Pearls, after all, are an internationally-known symbol of influence and opulence. Pearl’s natural translucence and iridescence give them a luminosity that cannot be easily replicated and their luminosity gives them an intangible mystique.

Most people, however, do not take the time to appreciate the origin and rarity of these iridescent specimen. The conception of a pearl is really quite magnificent. Pearls are cultivated in the core of oysters and mollusks. Typically, a grain of sand will pass through the mouth of an oyster and lay within the tissue. The oyster will then coat the substance with layers of a smooth, crystalline essence that gives it that lustrous appearance. It takes years and years to create a full-bodied pearl that’s ready to be extracted. Many pearls are cultivated, but natural saltwater pearls are rare to the point where the entire pearl market is mostly composed of cultivated pearls. The oysters and mollusks that hold natural saltwater pearls lay at the very bottom of cold ocean floors. These oysters are fished out by free divers that can dive down to 40 feet and then reemerge to the surface mere moments after they descend.

Pearls have been used to display wealth and fortune for centuries. The famous Egyptian Queen Cleopatra won a bet that she could regale Mark Antony with a banquet that cost more than the assets of an entire country. During the dinner, when presented with the fact that the dinner did not quite meet up the value, she simply dropped her pearl earring into her glass of wine, where it dissolved and made an incredibly priceless drink. She then drank it in front of her newly dazzled dinner guest to prove her point.

Pearls hold exorbitant value, but these shimmery orbs have hidden properties that can bring luster to skin and have been used in skincare treatments for centuries. While they are considered a gemstone, their organic makeup is composed of amino acids, peptides, and minerals like calcium, magnesium, and potassium. These properties carry different types of beauty benefits that have been shrouded in secrecy for centuries. They are crushed until only a fine powder remains and then can be brushed along the facial contours. The only woman to become the Emperor of China was known for her flawless complexion.  When she took the throne at the age of 65, her face still looked like that of a young woman’s. When her subjects asked her for her beauty secrets, she would simply say that she had pearl powder to thank for her youthful complexion.

The texture of pearl powder is so fine and gentle that it’s the perfect clarifying agent. In cleansers and exfoliants, pearl powder purifies pores and lifts away excess sebum. The balancing properties of pearl powder also make it a great anti-inflammatory agent for soothing toners and deep cleaning peeling treatments. In anti-aging treatments, pearl powder can treat wrinkles, age spots, looseness, and dullness. The amino acids and peptides rebuild fibroids that keep skin firm, like collagen and elastin. Pearl powder can be found in age defying creams and masks that renew and lift skin. Pearls are surprisingly resilient despite their dainty appearance. In creams and finishing powders, pearl-powder-infused cosmetics can fight free radicals and protect skin from impurities and pollution.
