The Benefits of Gold-infused Skincare

Discover the Power of Gold Skincare

Gold-infused beauty products are the ultimate indulgence. A miracle anti-ageing ingredient loved by beauty editors across the world, beauty brands are embracing the opportunity to bring gold beauty products into our beauty arsenal. There are multiple skincare benefits that make colloidal gold one of the most coveted beauty ingredients in the industry. Read on to discover the benefits of gold skincare products.

What are the Benefits of Gold-infused Skincare?

Anti-inflammatory properties

Firstly, colloidal gold is reported to have anti-inflammatory properties, making it an ideal healing treatment for those with acne, hyperpigmentation, sun-damaged, or sensitive skin. Nevertheless, these products don’t have to be used as topical remedies, they can be integrated into your daily skincare routine to benefit your skin long-term.

Anti-ageing benefits

For those concerned with the visible signs of skin ageing, colloidal gold helps to re-texture and repair skin damage, revealing a renewed glowing complexion. Gold-infused skincare products contain a powerful blend of active ingredients infused with colloidal gold to create a firming effect and improve skin elasticity.

Defence against environmental aggressors

Helping to reinforce the skin’s natural barrier, consistent use of colloidal gold products will also aid the skin’s defence against environmental aggressors. Whether you live in a city or a suburb, daily pollutants exacerbate environmental skin ageing and damage overall skin health. Colloidal gold is a powerful ingredient to add to your skincare wardrobe.

Radiance-boosting qualities

Due to its intense light-reflecting colour, colloidal gold is also known to create a brightening effect, adding a radiant and luminous quality to the skin. Over time, this revitalising ingredient will help the skin appear more even and smooth.

Enlightened by the power of gold, we’ve sourced the best gold products to refine your routine. We included six of our favourite gold-infused and gold-inspired beauty products in the Beauty Expert Collection: Gold Edition, here are the products next up on our Gold Skincare hall of fame.

What are the Best Gold Skincare Products?

The Gold-infused Cleanser

If you’re intrigued by the Peter Thomas Roth 24k Gold Face Mask included in the Gold Edition, you’ll love the 24k Cleansing Butter. A luxurious anti-ageing formula that transforms from solid balm to oil, enjoy daily radiance-boosting benefits for the ultimate glow.

The Gold-infused Eye Treatment

Infused with gold, collagen and fruit extracts, the Pixi 24k Eye Elixir is a lightweight eye serum that replenishes moisture, depuffs the eye area and reduces the signs of fatigue. With a cooling rollerball applicator, this is the treatment to fake the perfect night’s sleep.

The Gold-infused Anti-Ageing Cream

Created with mature skin in mind, the Carita Trio of Gold Perfect Cream is an anti-ageing moisturiser that melts beautifully into the skin to improve the skin’s radiance, texture, and suppleness. Powered by Carita’s exclusive 3-Gold complex, the formula promotes cell regeneration and luminosity to create a youthful healthy glow.

The Gold-infused Facial Oil

A unique blend of Manuka Honey, 24k Gold, Marula Oil and luscious plant oils, the Manuka Doctor 24k Gold & Manuka Honey Face Oil is a daily dose of hydration that leaves the skin feeling nourished and instantly softer. Combining the benefits of the powerful ingredients Manuka Honey and Gold, this oil will help to reduce the visible signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles.

The Gold-infused Retinol Treatment

Retinol has become a popular ingredient among skincare aficionados, due to it’s ability to produce results quickly. We love the Prai 24k Gold Concentrate Retinol+ because it combines Retinol with 24k Gold to reduce the visible signs of ageing, prevent moisture loss, and encourage a healthy level of collagen in the skin. For those with sensitive skin, we advise conducting a patch test before use, and building up use in stages.
