Not Just Another Precious Metal: Skincare Benefits of a Golden Rubdown

lelo massage oilAlmost as famous as the woman herself is Cleopatra’s gold mask, which she would wear while sleeping in the belief that it would maintain her youthful appearance. We don’t know about you, but to us sleeping in a metal mask sounds like a pain in the asp.

Get it? Pain in the asp? Never mind.
While it merely came down to superstition at the time, we now know that gold acts as an effective antioxidant. These antioxidants offer a number of benefits for skincare, and an as-yet-unproven side effect of attracting Roman emperors.

When applied to skin, antioxidants will protect and maintain the collagen within it, which keeps skin firm. Skin loses collagen as we age, causing gravity to have more of an effect which results in wrinkles. The antioxidants in gold also act as an anti-inflammatory that will slow down the secretion of melanin, thereby reducing the occurrence of age spots.
Luckily though, to get these benefits you won’t have to rob Fort Knox, nor wear a metal mask to bed. When it comes to the positive skincare effect of gold, just a few milligrams will do the trick.
We propose combining this opulently effective skincare solution with a deliciously decadent intimate massage by trying LELO’s Flickering Touch Massage Oils. The proprietary formula combines all-natural oils enriched with skin-nourishing vitamin E and 24-Karat gold flakes, for a sensual prelude that will keep you glowing long after the evening is done.
