Cleopatra is rumored to have covered her face in a pure gold mask in hopes of maintaining her youthful appearance. It turns out she wasn't alone in thinking the precious metal contained anti-aging properties; for thousands of years, the metal has been used in Ayurvedic medicine, one of the oldest medical systems in the world.
The appeal of using gold for luxurious treatments is obvious. Throughout history, gold has been the most precious of all metals. It's been used to enhance everything from jewelry to sarcophaguses, and the ancient Egyptians believed it reflected the brilliance of the sun. Using that logic, it makes sense that the luminous metal would be added to the treatments of Cleopatra and other uber-wealthy and powerful people in need of a beauty touch-up. Even after all these years, gold is still regarded as a beneficial element by many skin care professional
In addition to antioxidant and antimicrobial powers, gold is praised for its purported ability to ward off UV damage, tighten lax skin and reduce the appearance of discoloration. Some believe it can slow the breakdown of elastin, keeping skin firm and taut; other proponents believe gold increases circulation, eliminating toxins from the body and speeding up tissue repair.
