The New Metallic Beauty Elixirs

First, we saw the metallic fashion boom of the 80s, then the rise of rapper "bling" in the 90s, and this year, metals are becoming mainstream in a whole new sector of pop culture - the world of beauty.

Silver, copper and zinc are the key ingredients in a series of hot beauty products for 2008. While some metals add a subtle dose of luxury to your beauty regimen, others have a more powerful effect on the skin.

SkinStore’s metallic beauty bounty includes:

Active Metal: Zinc

Zinc, a dermatologist favorite, is an essential element for healthy skin largely because of its healing properties. By accelerating the renewal of skin cells, zinc not only improves the elasticity of skin, it soothes and repairs cuts, wounds and rashes.

It is often used as an anti-inflammatory agent, helping to relieve sunburn, poison ivy or blisters. It also has proven effective in treating acne or conditions like psoriasis.

Active Metal: Silver

Silver has been used by many different cultures, from ancient Egyptians to early American settlers, for its medicinal and preservative properties. Today, silver is used for its powerful anti-microbial benefits.

Unlike some antiseptics, silver does not damage tissue cells. In fact, it has been found that when applied topically, silver can aid in the recovery from rashes, sunburns and skin infections. This precious metal can also minimize the discomfort caused by insect bites and poison ivy.

Active Metal: Copper

Copper is fundamental to the development and performance of several functions of the human body. The synthesis of collagen and elastin is partly related to the presence of copper in the body.

For centuries, copper has played an integral role in treating wounds and skin diseases due to its antibacterial and antifungal attributes. This mineral is a component of the powerful antioxidant enzyme, superoxide dismutase.

The vitality and renewal of cells increase when copper is combined with zinc and magnesium. These minerals work together to stimulate tissues and fortify skin, binding moisture and repairing cells.
