The Power of Gold - VLCC Insta Glow Gold Bleach! #InstaGlow

Gold is a precious metal that each and every person aspires to own as jewellery or gold bars, but not many of us know the skin benefits of the same. In ancient times, gold was used for skin care and skin treatments. The Romans used gold preparations for the treating skin lesions and sores. The Chinese believed that gold was the secret to having youthful skin. Japanese declared a gold leaf facial treatment that would help the skin rejuvenate and reduce the wrinkles. Cleopatra, the famous Egyptian queen, who was known to be the most beautiful woman in the world in ancient times, was known to sleep with a gold face mask every night to enhance her complexion. So it is but natural, that with such history of gold being used for beauty treatments, today's skin products and treatments will obviously make use of gold in it to give us results.

But how and why is gold so helpful to our skin? Have you ever thought about it? Here are some of the reasons:
  1. Gold has the power to activate the basal cells of the skin, which help in increasing the elasticity of the skin. Increase in elasticity helps to reduce fine lines, wrinkle, and marks on your face.
  2. Due to the presence of antioxidants in gold, there is an increase in blood circulation that helps in the reduction of acne levels, and in enhancement of metabolism of skin cells and secretion of waste.
  3. As gold stimulates our cell and blood circulation, our skin gets well hydrated and thus we have naturally glowing and smooth skin.
  4. Collagen gives smooth skin and shiny hair, and using skin care with gold slows down the depletion of collagen which starts after the age of 25.
  5. Gold reduces production of melanin thus helping us tan less on exposure to the sun.
  6. All the above together work towards anti-ageing!
Gold facials are what I indulge in once in a while, but lately in my home skin care regime I have introduced the VLCC Insta Glow Gold Bleach with the goodness of gold oxide. Since I don't get the time to step out much to the salon, I now purchase products that are DIY and do the bleach session myself. I have been bleaching since a long time, but I love the iridescent effect that the VLCC Insta Glow Gold Bleach gives to my skin. 

I always pick up the 60 gms pack priced at INR 125/-, which is perfect for 2 uses. It comes with one Bleach Cream(40 gms), 2 Powder Activators(2 gms each), 2 Pre Bleach Creams(3 gms each), 2 Post Bleach Packs(5 gms each) and one Spatula.

In case you are using the bleach for the first time make sure you do a patch test before you apply it on the facial skin so as to test that it doesn't burn your skin. For the patch test, you can create a teeny weeny mix of the bleach and the powder activator and apply it on your elbow. If you feel any kind of excessive irritation then it means that the product is not suitable for your skin and hence you should avoid using the product.

Here are the steps to use the bleach:
  1. Wash your face thoroughly with soap and cold water and pat dry the face.
  2. Once the face is dry, apply the complete sachet of the Pre Bleach Cream and massage it over the face until it gets absorbed.
  3. To make the bleach mixture, use one big spoon of the Bleach Cream with one small spoon of activator powder and mix them well.
  4. Apply the mixture immediately using the spatula and avoid applying it on the eyebrows and around the eyes.
  5. Allow the application to remain for about 10 to 15 minutes depending on your skin type and skin tone. 
  6. Wash off the application with cold water and then apply a thin layer of the Post Bleach Pack. After 5 minutes of applying the Post Bleach Pack massage gently so that it absorbs into the skin.
  7. Do not use soap on the skin for about 6 hours post bleaching and apply stepping out in the hot sun immediately.
Recommended Time :
  1. For darker skin tone leave the bleach mixture for up to 10 minutes
  2. For wheatish skin tone leave the bleach mixture for up to 15 minutes
  3. For fair skin tone leave the bleach mixture for 15 to 20 minutes
