Precious Metals in Skin Care

Veethi Telang
As if those hours you spend in the parlors weren't enough to enhance beauty. Welcome to the world where precious metals aren't worn but included in your daily beauty regimen. The inclusion of precious metals for taking care of the skin is growing on women all across the globe. Find out how...
Okay, let me plug in the brain-wires of my mind, and ask you one question. What would a woman do if she stumbled upon a pot of gold? Would she sell it off? Nope. Would she make jewelry out of it? A big no. Would she give it as charity? Hah, hell no! Today's woman is smarter. She'll add gold to her facial pack, and enhance her beauty.
Tell you the truth, money and jewelry will follow, if you know what I mean (bad, bad joke). So, coming back to our point, men can never understand to what extent women can go to have that glowing, younger, and blemish-free skin.
Well, isn't it obvious, since we women never, never get over our obsession for running a slew of beauty products in the market, even after having a line of not-so-pleasant experiences? The answer is simple. We women, are suckers for anything that promises a youthful, smooth, and glowing skin. If you're a woman reading this piece of writing, you cannot deny this, under any circumstances.
Talking about the inclusion of valued metals in the list of beauty services provided by spas all over the world, there's only one thing that comes to my mind. Are we really going back to the Cleopatra age? History has it, she bathed in milk, and slept wearing a mask of gold every night. Today, it shan't come as a surprise to you if you see beauty conscious females buying gold, silver, pearls, and platinum, not to make jewelry, but to add them to facials, masks, and other beauty packs.
The result? A glowing, young skin, that you'd kill for. And wrinkles? Brace yourself to say goodbye to them, for these metals in cosmetics can cause changes in your skin with the blink of an eye. Cosmetic moguls all over the world are doing it, and are doing it with pride. If you're all set for some killer money squander, you're going to love the skin you'd be in. Nope, no gimmicks here.

Precious Stones in Skin Care: How They Work

Glitter, sparkle, and shine, as some of the most treasured stones you see in a jewelry store are now a part of your daily beauty regimen.
To start with, gold and platinum facials are the new fad in spas and beauty salons across the globe, for the reason that they are found to be immensely effective in enhancing the quality of skin by penetrating into it,...
... and provide benefits such as tightening, smoothing, and toning those fine lines, thanks to the antioxidant properties these metals own which make them a must-have for every beauty conscious woman.
Spas and salons provide a number of treatments to women, wherein, these metals are added to the packs and applied on the skin. Their application also depends on the kind of treatment, by means of which, they show their effects accordingly. It might take you by surprise to know that the silver metal that was just a part of your necklaces and bangles, also boasts of many anti-inflammatory and antibiotic properties.
Even though not many dermatologists promote its use considering the skin irritations it causes, it definitely serves the purpose better than many other skin products that promise you the world, but fail miserably.
Precious metals such as platinum, pearl, gold, and silver, are known to provide that balance, along with keeping aging at bay by tightening the texture of the skin. There's something about these metals that makes every woman try them at least once, isn't it?

Gold in Skin Care

Just the sight of gold displays immense radiance, and you can expect the same in your skin right from the very first treatment. 24K gold is used in higher end skin products, the tiny particles of which easily absorb into the skin bestowing youth to the texture. It increases the radiance as the skin tends to retain a sheen that is seen as a result of the inclusion of gold in the product.
Used in the right proportion and correct way, these gold-based products increase the production of collagen (a fibrous protein that maintains the health of the skin), thus preventing aging, and maintaining the firmness and youthfulness of the skin. This does require you to spend a little more than your monthly budget on beauty treatments, but then, it's worth your newly found love for your new skin, isn't it?

Platinum in Skin Care

Have you ever heard of La Prairie's Cellular Cream Platinum Rare? For those who're clueless about what it is, let me tell you that it is one of the most expensive beauty products ever (approx. $1000 for 1.7oz), but is considered to improve the skin's receptiveness to vital nutrients, and maintain skin hydration, regardless of the climate you expose your skin to.
It is because of this skin product that boasts upon having platinum metal, that your skin can maintain its electrical balance and adjust to the transforming humidity levels. Not to miss, products made with small amounts of platinum in them, are found to combat aging, and rejuvenate the skin like none other. So, tell me, are we in for a $1000 shell out?

Silver in Skin Care

Oh, trust me, there are women in this world who will trade their soul for getting the silvery-shimmery-Kim-Kardashian look. Have you seen it? She shimmers in silver, and leaves you awestruck. Well, silver is one precious metal that is used not only for enhancing the radiance of the skin, but also fighting against skin blemishes that are otherwise considered irreversible by the average woman.
Colloidal silver is often included in skin products so as to reduce skin irritations, sunburns, cuts and burns, thanks to the anti-inflammatory properties that silver has. It is a fantastic addition to skin treatments, considering the healing it performs, and regeneration of cells leading to an unbelievably softer, smoother skin, that you notice in just a few days. Seems like, you really found out the silver lining!
Purification. Nourishment. Restoration. These precious metals do it all for you. They're the new fad, and they're here to stay for long. Other than gold, silver, and platinum, there are pearl, bronze, and copper extracts of which are often found in many beauty products to tighten your skin and give you back the tenderness your skin once had.
It is highly recommended you talk to your health care provider prior to using any of these products, as even though the results of using beauty products made from these precious stones are astonishing, chances are, they might adversely affect your skin.
Nevertheless, here's your 'golden' chance to fall in love with the woman you see in the mirror. Make the most of it.
