1. What is Acne?
Acne is perhaps the most common chronic skin disease. There are over half a dozen forms of acne. All of them have to do with the inflammatory condition of the sebaceous (that is fat or grease) glands and hair follicles usually found on the face, the neck, chest and shoulders. Acne is characterized by the presence of comedones or blackheads, pimples, small superficial sebaceous cysts and scars. It is closely related to the disturbance in the hormones experienced at puberty and premenopause. It is normally worse before each menstrual period. Healthy energy vibrations can be interrupted due to embarrassment at an age when people tend to be sensitive about personal appearance. The skin, covering the entire body, is a marvellous and intricate mechanism. It serves three main purposes: 1. covers the inner body organs, 2. regulation of body temperature and 3. elimination of cell waste. The extra
efforts of the skin to eliminate excess waste result in acne and other forms of skin disease. The skin is directly connected with and intimately bound up with the working of the whole body system. All skin diseases, including acne, are the outcome of malfunctioning of the body as a whole, but all forms of acne have their origin in wrong eating habits. So what vibrations trigger this incorrect eating of a malfunctioning body? Is it the inability to trust life? Lack of faith? Can’t find spirituality or your devotion? Wrong values, ethics or lack of courage? Is it the inability of being able to see the whole picture (makes sense in the hormonal changes area)? These are all issues of the seventh chakra. Acne prone skin responds well to mineral makeup. With all those good vibrations on your face from the minerals of the Earth, would you expect anything else?
2. Healing Acne with Crystal Amethyst

3. Healing Acne with Stone Idocrase
Idocrase or Vesuvianite was first discovered on Mount Vesuvius, hence the name. Idocrase is said to be a very energetic stone that can be used to stimulate any of the chakra points.

Moonstone regulates and harmonizes hormones during puberty, menstrual cycles and menopause. It is recommended to wear it as a necklace or bracelet.
6. Healing Stone Rhodonite for Acne Skin Care
Rhodonite is a true stone of love, helping to achieve ones greatest potential and teaches us to see both sides of every issue. It can help one have a passionate love that is also grounded. It is a stone of grace and elegance. It decreases anxiety while increasing attention to detail and helps attain calm assurance in all activities. It works beneficially on the heart chakra, opening one to unconditional love and increased service to mankind. Rhodonite can be considered a stone of contrasts. The pinks indicate energy that enhances passionate love. The shiny black indicates grounding energy. Physically, it helps with emphysema, joint inflammation, bone growth, the ears, arthritis, and most especially in wound healing. It actually prevents the formation of scars from pimples and open spots when a flat tumbles stone or slice is placed on the affected area. Wash your face or take a bath (crystal remedy) with rhodonite because the magnesium found in this stone is particularly effective on acne.
7. Mineral makeup and Acne.
Mineral make up is most highly valued for its naturally-derived ingredients. Good mineral make up formulations will contain nothing but minerals extracted and refined from the earth. These ingredients are also cited as being ‘natural’. This is true in that they are not artificial creations, but you should keep in mind that most mineral ingredients are processed to ensure they are safe for skin. Mineral makeup benefits acne due to the minerals magnesium, calcium (found in mica), iron and silica.
