This isn’t exactly a new trend, but it is — all puns intended — a golden one.

Skincare is increasingly becoming about unique ingredients and interesting treatments. In recent years, gold-infused skincare is gaining popularity for all the right reasons, and it’s an indulgence that’s truly beneficial to the skin.

Gold has always been a miracle anti-ageing ingredient – a quality that has held it in good stead over centuries. But with newer products hitting the market, its multiple benefits are once again in the spotlight.

Gold comes with anti-inflammatory properties and that means that it is ideal for those dealing with sensitive, hyper pigmented, and acne-scarred skin. As far as ageing is concerned, gold also helps repair skin damage while adding radiance and glow with its intense light-reflecting colour. It improves skin elasticity, giving it a firming effect and combating environmental aggressors and daily pollutants.

Here, we picked out four effective products that can pave the way for gold in your beauty closet this season.
