If you think gold only has a place on your ears, neck or wrists, guess again… This precious metal has been used since ancient times to beautify the skin and promote overall health. From Cleopatra’s gold mask to Eastern medicinal preparations used to help arthritis and heart disease, there are many reasons to go for the gold!
#1 Fights Inflammation
Inflammation plays a key role in aging, both within the skin and the body and the body as a whole. Although the exact link between the two is still unknown, it’s believed that inflammation causes cell damage when present for a long period of time. As far as the skin is concerned, inflammation is associated with redness, itching, rashes, eczema, rosacea and more. Unbeknownst to many, gold is a common treatment for easing the inflammation associated with joint pain and arthritis, and many studies have proven its effectiveness—so it goes without saying that your skin can benefit from gold as well. Minimizing inflammation may help reduce pigment production, which goes a long way for maintaining youthful, even-toned skin.
#2 Promotes Healing
A landmark study published in The Journal of Investigative Dermatology found that gold was effective for healing skin ulcers—and this may have an anti-aging effect as well. The skin produces collagen as part of the healing process, so optimizing the skin’s self-repair may be a way to maintain healthy collagen and in turn keep fine lines and wrinkles at bay.
#3 Stimulates Cell ProductionSince gold is a metal, it conducts electricity—and electrical currents help cells communicate with each other. This communication is essential for the production of new, healthy cells, so supplementing your skin with gold can give this process a boost.
Gold-infused skincare products come in many forms, including serums, creams and masks. Whether you choose just one or all of these ways to treat your skin to the rejuvenating benefits of gold, think of this ingredient as an indulgent way to improve the health and appearance of your skin.
