Gold has been used by Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, and Japanese over the centuries to treat many skin conditions. Ancients believed that gold has medicinal properties with the ability to heal different diseases.
The antioxidant properties in gold help in increasing blood circulation leading to the reduction in acne and skin allergies.
Gold activates the basal cells of the skin and increases the elasticity of the skin. (Basal cells are responsible for producing new cells). Gold helps reduce wrinkles, fine lines, blemishes, and marks on the skin, helping you look younger.
Gold can also slow down the depletion of collagen levels in skin cells, which starts from the age of 25.
The ions present in gold help in stimulating the cells, nerves, and veins in the body. This helps improved blood circulation, hydration and continued maintenance of the skin’s moisture level. The small particles of gold get absorbed into the skin imparting a rich glow.
Gold has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammation properties that helps oxygen enter into the skin increasing cell renewal.
Dryness of skin causes premature aging. Gold reduces the dryness of skin and helps in increasing the metabolic rate.
Gold reduces the production of melanin in the skin. Cleopatra was known to use gold masks as part of her skin care to enhance her complexion and keep her skin youthful, glowing and beautiful.
Use of gold can reduce the breakdown of elastin, restores the elasticity of the tissues and prevents skin sagging. Increase of elasticity means firmer and more toned skin.
