Gold is everywhere from moisturizers to serums and oils and even eye patches.

Gold-infused skin care can seem somewhat gimmicky but according to Shape, that's not entirely the case.

Shape discussed the benefits of gold in skin care with Corey L. Hartman, M.D., a board-certified dermatologist. 

Due to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, benefits of gold skin care include:

  • Protecting against free radicals,

  • Minimizing fine lines and wrinkles,

  • Soothing, 

  • Calming redness from rosacea and acne,

  • Boosting firmness, and

  • Brightening.
