During the winter, we all tend to spend a lot of more time on self care than we do during the summer. When it’s cold out, it’s easy to find time to keep up with a complicated face cleansing routine or to indulge in a cup of tea while wearing a luxurious robe. Once the sun comes out, most of us are out the door to enjoy the wonderful weather and don’t make time for our skin or for our brains to relax.
Today we’re talking about the ultimate luxury: gold. Gold has always been a major part of society, from gold standard based currency to gold that is used for medicinal purposes. Today gold is everywhere, from our wedding rings to nanotechnology that is used to fight breast cancer. It’s also started to be used in cosmetics and body products for added shimmer and for additional skin benefits. It turns out that gold is more than just pretty: it’s good for you too!
Today we’re taking a tour of our favorite gold products, from lingerie to lip gloss. All of these products will help you bring a little bit of golden luxury into your life, even if you’re not quite ready to take up your full winter routine again.
