The beauty community is always in the search of new exotic ingredients that could reverse the damages that time has mercilessly inflicted on us. In the pursuit of flawless skin, one specific element takes the spotlight: Gold. The benefits of using gold have been floating around since the days of Cleopatra; it’s been said that she covered her face in pure gold each night to stay young. Skincare experts have argued that gold has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties which can help to combat hyperpigmentations and slow down signs of ageing.
Framed for its outstanding quality, brands have incorporated gold — either gold specks or flakes — into their beauty products. If you are looking for ways to change up your daily skincare routine, then adding a gold-infused product is the way to go to give your skin a royal treatment.
Below are 5 products to try:
