Each year during awards season, many of the upscale skin centers in and around Los Angeles see an uptick in one of their unique offerings: A 24-karat gold facial. It just seems like this unique treatment provides the desired effect in getting the face ready to hit the red carpet. And you know what? It’s not news that you can tighten skin with gold.
The skincare and beauty researchers at Cocoàge Cosmetics have been well aware for years of the powerful effects of gold to tighten skin, which is why they incorporated the precious metal into a full line of gold- and chocolate-based cosmetics. We spoke with them to get a greater understanding of just why gold is so effective at toning and tightening the skin.
How to Tighten Skin With Gold Cosmetics
#1 It’s All About the Ions in the products
As a precious metal, gold has ions that stimulate the skin cells as it gets applied to the face. This stimulates the cells of the skin, and in turn improves circulation of blood throughout the tissues of the face.
The end result is a fresher, more vibrant appearance after the application of a gold mask such as Cocoàge Cosmetics’ 24K Gold Chocolate Drip Face and Body Mask and 24K Gold Chocolate Magnetic Mask. How to tighten skin with gold becomes as easy as applying a gold facial mask!
#2 Collagen Boosting
As you age, collagen, the skin component that promotes youth and elasticity, gradually begins to break down and isn’t replenished. But gold has been shown to slow down the loss of collagen in the skin. It’s easy to see how this effect can result in tighter and firmer skin on the face and elsewhere in the body.
FYI another big collagen booster is Vitamin C, which helps the skin produce more collagen. So for best results, combine both vitamin C and gold cosmetics in your skincare. Find both in the VitaCocoa 24K Gold Vitamin C Serum from Cocoàge Cosmetics!
It even adds chocolate to the mix, which brings copious anti-aging antioxidants with it. It’s the ultimate serum to defy the visible signs of the aging process. (If you didn’t already know, chocolate and gold work together beautifully in cosmetics.)
#3 Excellent for Elastin
Elastin is another skin component that keeps the skin tight and youthful. And gold facials have been shown to counter the loss of elastin, as well. Put it all together, and it’s easy to see why so many Hollywood stars turn to gold facials before their big turn on the red carpet.
