Is Silver the new Beauty Gold?

By  | 

We’ve seen gold masks, the obsession with gold serums is now global, and a lot of us have tried gold in face creams. But it’s time for a new precious element to take the spotlight.

Silver is known as one of ‘the’ most mystical of elements. It signifies a quiet power and elegance that comes with no other metal, Understated bling and an amazing flow of energy is what defines this subtle metal.


The benefits of silver in beauty were first discovered in the early twentieth century. Unsurprisingly, it comes with a long list of virtues, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. Topically applied silver usually does wonders for everything from burns to colds. During World War I, physicians often used colloidal silver to fight infection.

Silver naturally attacks the cell membranes of bacteria and viruses caused by acne, leaving only healthy skin behind. It also increases cell regeneration and helps renew damaged skin. Now thanks to these beauty brands who are infusing silver into their products, our skincare routine has become a ‘little’ more luxurious, and a ‘lot’ more science-based.

Here are some of our favourite products to try.
