Legend has it some of history’s greatest beauties were known for using gold to maintain their complexion. Queen Cleopatra, widely considered one of the most beautiful women to have ever lived, is believed to have used a luxurious gold face mask at night to maintain her youth and radiance. Geishas, known for their embodiment of all things enchanting, were said to rub pure edible gold leaf on their faces as a method to preserve and enhance their beauty. The skin care practice was handed down through the generations, and today’s beauties and skin care experts continue to tout the many benefits using gold in their skin care routines. So much so, that gold face masks are more popular than ever. And for good reason!
The use of gold for medicinal and healing reasons began with the scientists of ancient times. From the ancient Egyptians and Chinese healers to the Medieval Alchemists and the first true chemists of the Renaissance, gold has featured prominently as a force of purification, rejuvenation, and restoration in the body. Modern science supports these early theories and explains why the use of gold-infused why the practice of applying gold is still so beneficial for the skin.
Gold Masks and Collagen
While collagen is the most abundant protein in our body, our bodies produce less of it as we age. It begins breaking down in our early 20s and continues to degrade throughout our lives. Gold is believed to stimulate the production of collagen and slows down the telltale signs of aging caused by damaging pollutants, sun exposure, and reduced elasticity.
When nano gold particles are combined with marine collagen, the precious mineral is more easily absorbed into the skin. A gold mask enhanced with marine collagen peptides may also:
- Increase skin hydration
- Improve elasticity and firmness
- Soothe irritation, stress and fatigue
- Reverse sun damage
- Minimize puffiness
- Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
With so many claimed beauty benefits, it’s no wonder that gold has developed such a glowing reputation over time.
Other Healing Benefits of a Gold Masking Ritual
While gold can work wonders on the surface of the skin, it is believed to have other health benefits throughout the body. For instance, energy healers and other spiritual thought leaders believe that gold helps improve blood circulation and oxygen flow which in turn, helps regulate body temperature and boost immunity.
Gold is also linked to the Third Eye Chakra to release negativity and stimulate your body’s natural healing response. When you apply a gold mask, your body absorbs these benefits through the skin for a renewed sense of wisdom and self-confidence.
