Should We Splurge on Gold Skincare?

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard about gold skincare already. It is believed that Cleopatra wore real gold to give her skin a radiant complexion. Ancient Egyptians believed that gold had the power to heal all sorts of physical, mental, and spiritual afflictions. The Romans used gold to treat sores while the Chinese believed it was the secret to having youthful skin. Humans have practiced skincare with real gold for millennia.

Here are some ways you can use real gold to upgrade your skincare.


One simple way to upgrade your skincare with real gold is to use a cream or serum to rejuvenate your skin. Luxury spas have adopted 24k gold leaf treatments in order to moisturize, firm, and hydrate skin.

Gold works by locking in moisture and it makes skin firmer by helping the skin to maintain collagen. In turn, the collagen in the skin inhibits the breakdown of elastin, which is excellent for making your skin more firm.


While many people use gold for cosmetic reasons alone, it actually has some solid therapeutic properties that can help to treat skin conditions. As shown in this study, it can actually be effective at killing bacteria on our skin and within our body.

One of the most awesome benefits of gold is that it can take care of those stubborn spots and discolorations under the eyes. Kristals makes a fantastic cream called Gold 24k Gold Eye Perfecting Cream that works wonders.


This is where gold outshines all the rest. Just as Cleopatra once did, you can use gold to look beautiful. However, it’s not just glowing skin that gold can provide. If you are performing your skincare with real gold, you might notice a few beauty side effects:

  • Clear skin
  • Less wrinkles
  • Less spots
  • Reduced fine lines
  • Improved skin texture
  • Youthful glow
