Cleopatra’s Beauty Secret – Gold
By Lissa Coffey – CoffeyTalk.com.
The use of pure gold in skin care products is becoming increasingly popular. However, gold has been used for various skin treatments since ancient times by the Japanese, Romans and Egyptians. It has been said that Cleopatra used a gold mask every night to enhance her complexion and keep her skin youthful, glowing and beautiful. Gold is also a traditional ingredient in Ayurvedic skin care applications.
Why? Here are just a few of the benefits of gold:
– Gold has Anti-Aging Properties
The ions in gold stimulate the cells of the skin and penetrate to reach the nerves and the veins, leading to improved blood circulation. This increases metabolism of the skin cells and improves elasticity. Gold also helps to deeply hydrate the skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, blemishes and marks on the skin.
– Gold Slows Collagen Depletion
Collagen is naturally produced in your body and this keeps us flexible. Collagen is responsible for maintaining smooth skin and shining hair. The collagen level in the body starts depleting after age 25, and this is when we start to notice a change in our skin. Skin care with gold can slow down the depletion of collagen level in your skin cells.
– Gold Treats Sun Damage
Exposure to the sun ages skin – and even though we know better now, many of us spent much of our younger years in the sun without protection and are paying the price for it now. The production of melanin in the skin, which can create sun spots, or age spots, can be reduced with the use of gold.
– Gold has Healing Properties
Egyptians believed that gold has medicinal properties that can help in healing. The antioxidant properties present in gold helps in increasing blood circulation which leads to reduction in acne and other skin allergies. Gold is said to have anti-bacterial and anti-inflammation properties that help oxygen to enter into the skin for the renewal of cells. This helps in treating ulcers and other inflammatory disorders of the skin.
– Gold Gives You a Glow
Gold helps in improving the blood circulation, so it helps hydrate and maintain the skin’s moisture level. The small particles of gold get absorbed into the skin imparting a rich glow. This makes the skin healthy, fresh and radiant.
