There’s nothing like a piece of gold to keep you glowing! And Janjira, one of Thailand’s bestselling brands, agrees. Its new 24K Gold Rituals range of natural skincare is totally indulgent and harnesses the power of the precious metal (it contains anti-inflammatory agents, which prevents the decline of collagen and elastin so skin remains taut and smooth).
The new line of products all use real flakes of 24K gold, along with vitamins, exotic botanical properties and antioxidant rich ingredients including panax ginseng root extract, yuzu, bladderwrack extract and sesame seed oil – and so is one of the foremost natural lines of skincare to combat ageing.
How can you resist this? I’ve been using the Rejuvenating Elixir, £46, on clean skin every morning. I love the gel-like texture, which feels light and refreshing. it glides on easily and sinks in quickly – so there’s no gloopiness to skin. Instead, the skin looks uplifted and renewed, and the flecks of gold add a radiant touch to the complexion – which is the perfect morning kick-start.
The Nourishing Eye Concentrate, £36, is my next step – a wonderful super-hydrating cream that smooths and reinvigorates the sensitive eye area. Containing Shea butter, cocoa butter and vitamins C and E – this super-charges the eye area (eliminating signs of tiredness) and stimulates collage so that skin feels smooth and plump.
For the most luxurious skin booster, turn to the Ultimate Age Renewal Treatment, £52. It has been blended with a veritable cocktail of exotic ingredients, such as raspberry, gardenia florida fruit and bladderwrack seaweed to provide deep moisture and to enhance skin elasticity. It has a jelly-like texture which feels light yet immediately works to give hydration. I’ve been gently pressing this over the face and it leaves skin feeling velvety smooth and youthful.
Ditch the diamonds, it’s gold that’s a girl’s best friend…
