Yes, you read it right. Gold in skincare trends has been circulating over the years and some people are claiming its effectiveness.

Gold, according to some studies, is an excellent source of antioxidant and is said to be a great anti-aging ingredient. They are also claiming that it helps improve scars and acne problems.

You’ll find speckles of gold in outrageously expensive skincare creams promising to firm your skin and erase your wrinkles. 

The question is, is it worth the price and the hype?

A piece of advice, just because something has gold in it, doesn’t mean it is valuable and worth your money and attention. It is ok to experiment with skincare products from time to time until you find the products that are good for you. As long as the price is reasonable, you can go ahead and give it a shot.
