Gold; it’s luxurious and bright, it sparkles and glows. But I am sure many of us are wondering if these qualities can be transferred to your skin when used it is used in skincare. The short answer — YES! However, beyond providing you with a special glow, gold has many benefits when formulated into skincare products, such as Saranghae’s Nourishing & Moisturizing Oil + Foam Cleanser with Truffle Extract & Gold. We have curated a little list to let you in on the amazing, beneficial properties of gold.
When gold is used topically it will brighten your skin, giving your complexion that extra little glow! This is because of the color itself and the reflective particles. It can be used to temporarily brighten those under eye circles or rejuvenate your skin for a special event!
Gold has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammation properties that helps oxygen enter the skin for the renewal of cells. This helps in reducing inflammation, which is a cause of acne and hyperpigmentation. It also increases the absorption of nutrients into your system.
Oxidation is a chemical reaction that yields free radicals that damage or kill your normal, healthy skin cells. It’s important for your body to have antioxidants as they’ll prevent oxidation from occurring. An antioxidant like gold will also help reduce fine lines and scars, firm your skin, and repair sun damage! — Woah!
Reduces Signs of Aging
Since antioxidants are able to slow down the process of oxidation, other benefits come as a result. When your healthy skin cells are killed or damaged, your collagen also breaks down, and you lose elastin. This is a major cause of wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging. As mentioned, gold is a great antioxidant and can prevent aging and fine lines by putting a halt on damage from happening to your healthy cells!
Yep, More Anti-Aging Benefits
Gold can activate the basal cells of the skin, which increases the elasticity of the skin. It thus reduces wrinkles, fine lines, blemishes, and marks on the skin, and will make you look younger.
Deep within the dermis layer, gold can increase your circulation. When circulation is increased, nutrients are able to flow, and this will keep your skin looking healthy. Poor circulation will make your skin to look pale and dull, losing its shine. Poor circulation can also attribute to dark spots on your skin. The cells to your skin need good circulation to heal. An increase in circulation promotes cell growth, which will also allow pesky acne blemishes to heal quicker. (!!!)
Collagen and elastin are the structure of the skin that maintains both elasticity and firmness. The collagen level in the body starts depleting from the age of 25 and this is when you notice the changes on your skin. Skin care with gold can slow down the depletion of collagen in your skin cells and help stimulate its production, helping to keep your skin firm and plump!
So, there you have it! Gold does far more for the skin then just adding a little shine. It has many incredible benefits when formulated into skin care, and for this, it gets a GOLD STAR.
