"As an energizing stone, tourmaline is believed to vitalize the skin, making it appear more radiant and youthful. When tourmaline crystals warm as they are rubbed onto skin, they become positively charged on one end and negatively charged on the other. Because of this unique feature, tourmaline has been incorporated into moisturizers, exfoliants, and anti-agers to increase the absorption of nutrients into the skin. According to one anti-aging product, tourmaline extract triggers a warming effect to increase the production of new collagen and the contraction of fibers, thus restoring the springiness of skin.
There's also some research published in The Journal of Cosmetic Science that claims that tourmaline radiates infra-red rays and this heats the skin (the theory is a bit like crystal or wave therapy) and therefore stimulates the circulation. The researchers mentioned (which undermined the credibility of the study a little) that some of the participants in the study were more sensitive to these infra-red rays than others." - Truth In Aging site.
