If you’re looking to refresh your appearance, colloidal gold may be the ingredient you need. Long touted for its alluringly lustrous properties, gold has made its way into the skincare industry. With its ability to renew and rejuvenate the skin for a fresher, more youthful complexion, you may want to consider adding it to your skincare regime.
But how exactly do you apply it? And is it worth the hype? Let’s dig a little deeper.
What Is Colloidal Gold?
Colloidal gold is a mixture of gold nanoparticles suspended in a liquid or other substance. The size of the particles makes it easier to penetrate the skin, while the liquid helps to distribute it evenly. Typically, you will find nanogold combined with other popular skin ingredients in a serum, face mask, or other product.
The Benefits of Colloidal Gold
While the shimmering gold adds a touch of luxury to any product, it has a bigger purpose than creating a lovely shimmer. Skincare experts (and medical professionals) have been reaching for gold due to its natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties,
Its antioxidant properties help rid your skin of free radicals, which can come from stress, pollutants, sun damage, or other external factors that damage your skin cells. Free radicals are often responsible for age lines and dull complexions.
It is also a great ingredient to combat inflammation, another common cause of damaged and aging skin. This makes it an excellent option when your skin is puffy or irritated. Gold can calm, strengthen, and revive your skin, leaving it with a lustrous glow.
Gold can also penetrate deeper layers of the skin and acts as a carrier for other ingredients. So, when you add it to your product, you’re not only receiving the benefits of the metal itself, but you’re also increasing the efficacy and absorption rate of the accompanying ingredients in your skincare routine.
When To Use Colloidal Gold
Colloidal gold is a luxurious treat whenever your skin needs a refresh, whether it’s a big night out, relaxing after a stressful week, or too much exposure to the elements. It’s also a great addition to your daily skincare regime, helping to heal and protect your skin from damage.
