Kristals Tips: 3 Key Benefits of Gold Skincare

You may have seen the photos on Instagram of Ricky Martin, Shanina Shaik, and other high-profile celebs using 24-karat gold masks for their skin. So is this a wacky celebrity fad or a real treatment? What are the benefits of gold skincare – if any?

We spoke with Kristals skincare experts and it turns out, the benefits of gold skincare are plentiful! There’s abundant literature available on the subject as well (feel free to look!). Gold doesn’t just have to look beautiful in your jewelry – you can use gold skincare to reduce inflammation and reduce wrinkles, plus live in healthier skin.

Excited yet? We are! Read on for the benefits of gold skincare and how you can use gemstone skincare to look more gorgeous naturally.

Kristals Tips: 3 Key Benefits of Gold Skincare

#1 Inflammation Reducer

According to dermatologists who use it in their practices, gold can help calm skin inflammation. This benefits us for obvious reasons, since irritated, flushed skin is not our goal. So try gold for even, radiant skin.

#2 Antioxidant

There is some preliminary evidence to suggest that gold offers antioxidant benefits, say skin care scientists from Kristals, a company specialized in developing formulations from gemstones including gold, because we know gemstones help balance your energy – and they can do it for your skin too.

Again, very important, since skin aging is strongly related to the natural process of oxidation in which free radicals are produced. This is why skin care experts are unanimous in recommending topical antioxidants to promote fresh, radiant skin.

#3 Wrinkle Reducer

Other research suggests that gold-infused cosmetics can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, including crow’s feet and smile lines. This could be from a moisturizing effect and possibly gold’s inhibition of elastin breakdown in the skin, say Kristals product developers.

Going beyond Ricky Martin, Jessica Alba and Sienna Miller, many beauty editors and regular folks who try gold masks seem to swear by them for helping their faces feel fresher, younger, more luminous and…as good as gold!
