Sure, gold looks nice, and we’ve seen more gold infused skincare on the market, but is it doing you any real good? Is it actually a benefit or just a decorative flare? Gold infused skincare products are more than just an opulent indulgence or visually pleasing- used in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine for centuries, gold has proven healing benefits in abundance. What exactly are the benefits of gold though? We’re here to tell you!
Ageing is a huge focus in skincare with a variety of products that fight wrinkles as well as those that aim to keep you looking younger for longer, but how can gold help? Gold has been proven to repair and retexture the skin and, when combined with other key anti-aging ingredients, it can create a gentle filming effect to protect skin and improve elasticity.
Speaking of protecting skin, gold has been proven to reinforce the skin’s natural barrier and help to protect against environmental damage. Whether you’re from the city or somewhere more remote, the pollution in our environments can damage skin contributing to irritation and even signs of aging. Gold can be an important ingredient for combatting this.
Gold has been universally accepted for its anti-inflammatory effect when used topically or as part of your overall skincare for long term skin improvement. Gold can reduce the appearance of acne and hyperpigmentation while soothing sun damaged or sensitive skin.
With the combined benefits of gold, skin over time will naturally become more even and smooth to improve radiance, but the reflective quality of the gold itself can improve the natural brightness and glow of the skin with use.
