“I believe that a Queen understands her true essence. She understands her role as a leader, a role model, a nurturer. She’s a ruler and a monarch with the power to make all the decisions in her kingdom which can be shared with her King. This Kingdom consists of her mind, hebody, and her soul. She possesses the power to be decisive, savvy, sophisticated yet warm and welcoming.” – Zipporah Monique
There is an endless list of things we all have to do to look after ourselves. As queens, keeping our kingdoms at a certain standard is important to us, so let’s talk about our kingdoms, my queens.
What active decisions do you make on a daily basis to maintain your kingdom?
Do you hydrate?
Do you moisturize?
Do you exfoliate?
Whatever your response is, you can get the same effects from having one key ingredient infused in the cosmetic products that we use. And that product…is gold.
Most of us know that gold is one of the most valuable minerals. Most people think of gold simply as jewelry. They sound super fancy and they look lovely. However, it is much more than that.
The use of gold-infused cosmetic products dates all the way back to the Macedonian dynasty and infamous Queen Cleopatra. The queen remains a beauty icon to many and her royal skin care routine was nothing short of royal. Cleopatra was known to wear a gold mask to sleep. This kept her skin looking fresh, hydrated and younger. She was a woman of exceptional beauty, and amid her rise to power, she became an inspiration to many women. Which is why many women have turned to her for cosmetic inspiration and started using gold-infused products. That made them feel beautiful, powerful and as confident as Cleopatra.
Indeed, gold is known since ancient times especially in manufacturing luxurious jewelry. But still little most people know of its valuable contribution to having radiant skin especially for women.
But what is really the point of having gold in your skin care products? Do they bring any benefits to your beauty regimen? Here are some of what they can do for your skin:
1. Improves your complexion for a natural glowing skin
Gold helps improve blood circulation, which means it can boost hydration and maintain your skin’s moisture level. This special component can remarkably improve your skin tone. So what is the end result? Bit of a glow, making your skin look healthier, fresher and more radiant.
2. Gold prevents wrinkles and reduces signs of aging
The major cause of wrinkles, fine lines and other signs of aging is collagen breakdown. Known for its ability to boost collagen production, gold is a potent source to ensure the elasticity of the skin. Now, there’s no way gold properties should be out of every woman’s beauty regimen.
3. Treats acne and reduces redness
Because of its natural antioxidant and antibacterial properties, gold can boost the natural defense system of the skin, and effectively combat the microbes which cause pimples, allergies and rashes on skin.
4. Elasticity of the skin can be enhanced
When your skin’s elasticity decreases, your skin tends to sag. Gold boosts the elasticity of the skin tissues which in turn prevents the sagging of your skin. The use of gold infused skin care products can minimize the collagen depletion while making your skin well nourished, thus making it firm and toned.
You may be surprised to know that gold does not only give you a beautiful, glowing and youthful skin but is also beneficial in many ways. Although it costs a bit more, gold is gold. At the end of the day, you want to make sure you are buying quality products that will actually work for you and will help your skin. After all, you deserve to be treated as a queen. Because you are a queen!
Be the queen that nurtures her kingdom and carefully selects the skin care products you use to express their true essence. Do this and improve your skin tone, keep it wrinkle-free and youthful. Release your inner queen through the radiant glow of your skin.
Now that you have a queen’s golden secret… Which queen will you unleash?
