Let’s talk about gold, gold as a beauty treatment.
There’s been a lot of talk lately about the benefits of gold for beauty matters, but is it just hype or a genuine beneficial beauty element? What are the properties that make it a good ally when it comes to our skin care? Is it effective?
One might ask how does gold get absorbed into our skin? I did a bit of research, and while there’s a lot of gossip and general praise about it, truth is gold – not as we know it commercially but in 24 karat leaves is a long well-kept beauty secret, from being one of Cleopatra’s beauty rituals to its use amongst China’s royalty. If we look at scientific proof, official health sites and studies also validate the properties and benefits of gold for our skin…“The Journal of Investigative Dermatology” reported that gold is beneficial in treating autoimmune diseases and inflammation, and inhibits skin enzymes involved in blister formation.
What does Gold actually do for your skin?
The use of 24 carat gold leaves aims to hydrate, firm and moisturize skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, resulting in smooth and radiant skin. It is thought to have antibacterial properties and to help transport oxygen molecules into the skin for cell renewal to treat ulcers and inflammatory disorders of the skin.
So far so good, should we use it?
Like with every product out there, there are factors to consider before using any product, such as allergic reactions which in the case of gold are rare but can result from direct skin contact. What most people who suffer from a “gold allergy” are really experiencing is nickel allergy. Nickel is a common component in gold alloys because it adds strength and durability.
For those who haven’t heard of it, OROGOLD is a luxury cosmetic brand founded in 2008 in the United States, specializing in Skin Care and Anti-Aging Cosmetics. I was lucky enough to trial a selected line from the coveted beauty range. They have different lines for every skin need but I personally went for the Collagen collection.
Those who are considering any kind of treatment should actually be cognizant and identify their needs. If you are over 30 or in your 20’s but experiencing aging signals such as saggy skin, fine lines or tired skin, collagen products are a good choice. Otherwise, if you don’t need collagen, applying a collagen based product might bring undesired effects…
When I first tried the OROGOLD COLLAGEN COLLECTION, my skin felt fresh but I didn’t want to rush to conclusions. It’s been a month now and it’s a reasonable time to share my experience with readers.
24K Collagen Renewal Serum
You might be wondering what is a serum, right? For those not familiar with this product serum is a skin care product you can apply to your skin after cleansing but before moisturizing. For those with drier skin, serums can be layered under the morning and/or night moisturizer, something I wasn’t aware of. OROGOLD 24K Collagen Renewal Serum is the first serum I’ve ever used, I actually apply it every night and love its lightweight but concentrated formula, so far the results I’ve observed every morning when I wake up is precisely that I don’t have that “just woke up” face. Its main ingredients are 24 Karat Gold and Beta-Glucan and it is formulated to reduce the appearance of fine lines and cracks
24K Collagen Renewal Cream
I’ve been using this specific product as part of my everyday beauty routine in the mornings. It aims to revive and restore volume to skin that has been lost due to aging as well as to help prevent the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It’s been about a month since I first tried it, and although I don’t have any volume loss issues, at least that I can notice, being a collagen treatment it is a good choice for prevention and maintenance. What I do notice is a more even complexion and a fresher look throughout the day.
The 24K Collagen Pre-Mask ( to be used along with the 24K Collagen & Seaweed Mask )
Well, this is indeed quite a spa treatment for home, prepare to pamper your skin big time. As its name states, the 24K Collagen Pre Mask prepares your skin for the 24K Collagen & Seaweed Mask in three phases. In texture it’s a gel, and when first applied it feels like a gel, but then it melts and feels more like an oil and then transforms into a milky foam to clean and purify your skin, getting it ready to receive all the nutrients and benefits from the 24K Collagen & Seaweed Mask!
24K Collagen and seaweed mask
This mask is formulated with four main ingredients: 24 carat Gold, Caviar, Collagen and Aloe. Perfect as a weekly therapy, this mask helps firm the skin while establishing natural moisture levels. It will provide a fresh and young looking complexion. I love the cold sensation when applied, and how clear and purified my skin looks afterwards.
24K Collagen Renewal lip balm,
This is actually one of my favorites, – no lip balm has worked so well on my lips like this one, as it not only acts as a conditioner, but it does moisture my lips, unlike regular lip balms made of vaseline which only conceal the dryness. I notice it every morning, my lips feel and look soft.
