Why Gold Sheet Masks Are Our New Skincare Obsession

One way to a supple, glowing complexion? Gilding yourself with gold. Yep, the sheet mask trend has been taken to luxurious new levels and now high-tech skincare has had a metallic makeover thanks to this coveted new ingredient.

Korean beauty has introduced us to a whole host of unusual, previously unheard of skincare crazes, from snail discharge to pickled egg shell powder, but for pure, unadulterated indulgence, gold gets the crown. Here’s why you need to stock up on the most sumptuous of masks…


Not only are gold sheet masks super-pretty to use, gold extract naturally boosts blood circulation and brightens the complexion, helping to even out skin tone and pigmentation. For the ultimate indulgence, supercharge your gold mask with real extracts of diamond and pearl powder, too. Diamond powder gently exfoliates to remove dead skin cells and pearl powder is an antioxidant that boosts superoxide dismutase – one of the body’s strongest antioxidant enzymes.


This luxurious ingredient is a source of antioxidants, which help to prevent skin ageing. In fact, the metal can protect against free radicals that lead to wrinkles and sun damage. Plump up your skincare routine with a sheet mask enriched with firming marine collagen and sprinkled with gold dust.


Who knew that the glamorous metal actually had antibacterial properties, too? This wonder ingredient is great for targeting spots and blemishes as well as preventing breakouts. If you have oily or combination skin, a gold sheet mask enriched with bamboo charcoal will naturally detox skin and help prevent that nasty build-up of impurities which lead to blocked pores and blackheads.


Gold dust has all-important anti-inflammatory properties, which can calm redness and soothe dryness leaving your skin silky-soft and radiant. Why not take hydration one step further and get a serious moisture-boost by combining gold extract with rose oil to moisturise and hydrate?

So there you have it – proof this skincare trend is not a case of style over substance. It’s time to invest in your golden glow.
