As far back as 4000 B.C. the ancient Egyptians fashioned beautiful artifacts from gold. Universally considered to be the symbol of everything precious and of lasting value, gold has taken many forms over the centuries. For the past few years, skin care products infused with gold have been growing in number. Appearing at first only in high end brand (such as Guerlain and Dior), they are now becoming a mass market luxury. How can we explain the infatuation for this precious metal? Does it truly hold miraculous skincare properties; or does it only serve the purpose of making our pretty little jars look even more prestigious?
Do you know the answer?
It might surprise you. In fact, I am pretty sure that it will. We always say that we can't compare apples and oranges, but it appears that we can compare gold to...tomatoes! At least, when it comes to their benefits. Let me explain. Tomatoes and gold both possess antioxidant properties and also revive dull skin tone. Just like the tomato, gold prevents oxidation (which is responsible for skin aging by altering the underlying collagen matrix). In theory, the antioxidant effect of the metal acts as a great barrier against oxidative stress. The same principle applies to the gold used in cosmetics: the antioxidant effect protects the skin from premature aging and revives it. It also boosts blood flow to the area being treated. This speeds cellular processes and activates regeneration. Hello younger looking skin!
