The gold skin hype
There is a long list of false generic claims, in my opinion, of what gold does for our skin. Don’t be honey-dipped by the flattery, flash & status of gold.
The long list of false claims includes being able to renew skin, improve blood-flow…while somehow simultaneously soothing it, impart antioxidants, minerals (but are these absorbable or useful?), slow the depletion of collagen, stimulate growth of new cells, and reduce appearance of wrinkles…but how on earth how? Seriously, Research the science behind this yourself before actually putting gold on your face. I don’t think gold is harmful, but I do think it is futile.
I actually bought gold masks from three different companies that will remain unnamed and tried them myself. Some of these masks had other ingredients that superficially hydrated or over-exfoliated my skin, and this effect could be naively confused with these claims.
My conclusion…don’t bother with gold for your skin. The Dermal Nutrients in my serums are worth more than their weight in gold…actually doing all of these things through the profound absorption and metabolization of actual- for real- nutrients. This might not be as sexy as gold in theory but more practical and effective. Guaranteed.
Keep learning about what the new paradigm shift means for your skin…practically.
Harm to heal is OUT and Nourish to Heal is IN.
Real healing is a beautiful process.
