Of the many benefits that the precious metal gold has as a skincare product, one of the most valuable may be as an exfoliating agent to renew and refresh the skin. The idea to exfoliate with gold isn’t hardly a new concept, either.
There’s historic evidence that Cleopatra exfoliated at night with gold face masks to preserve her beauty in ancient Egyptian times. Many Hollywood stars do the same today before big award ceremonies and other red carpet events.
4 Reasons to Exfoliate with Gold Skincare Products
#1 It’s All about the Flecks
Part of the exfoliating power of gold comes from the texture of the metal itself. Gold flecks have a soft texture for metal that can gently abrade the skin and then actually dissolve into the skin as they are worked around.
It provides the perfect medium for big-time exfoliating power in a product such as Cocoàge Cosmetics’ Cocoa Powder 24K Gold Body Scrub. For a subtler exfoliation that’s safe on all skin types — especially on the face — smaller gold particles are preferable. Try the 24K Gold Cocoa Facial Peeling Gel to lift away even deeply embedded dirt, oil, and impurities from the face for a smoother and brighter complexion.
#2 Better Blood Flow thanks to Chocolate infused Cosmetics
Of course, it also helps when your exfoliating ingredient provides other benefits beyond its scrubbing impact, and gold can deliver on this promise, as well. The ions present in gold stimulate blood circulation in the cells of the skin, which leads to a healthy glow and more radiant-looking skin after the exfoliating session.
#3 Stretchy Skin
Gold can fight the loss of both collagen and elastin in the skin, which are both skin components that begin to decrease as you age. This gives gold exfoliating products another powerful punch for promoting youthful, vibrant skin.
So the next time you’re looking for a bit of a change in your exfoliating routine, take a closer look at some of the offerings available from Cocoàge Cosmetics for a combination of chocolate and gold skincare that will take years off your skin.
