24K Beauty: The Best Gold-Infused Products
One of the most valuable metals in the world, gold has been used for centuries to make jewels, weapons and currency—and it is also a popular ingredient in beauty products. The ancient Egyptians believed that gold possessed special healing powers, and Queen Cleopatra was said to have worn pure gold to enhance her complexion. Gold’s numerous beauty benefits include:
It’s an antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties
It helps reduce acne and allergies
Its reflective particles provide a brightening effect
It stimulates skin cells for a healthier complexion
It increases skin elasticity for a more toned and firm complexion
Here, the best gold beauty products and accessories that are worth their weight in gold (King Midas would be jealous!):
