All you need to know about copper-infused skincare

It seems that Korean and Icelandic skincare is about to take a backseat now. The latest beauty regime involving copper is touted to be the next big thing and according to experts, this has some amazing all-round benefits as well. Copper boosts collagen and elastin levels. In other words, it is responsible for younger and smooth skin.

Some of the copper-infused products you can use include creams, serums, cleansers and mists. The element has been known to minimise acne and breakouts, offers antioxidant and anti-inflammatory as well as heals wounds. Copper peptides further help in warding off the effects of pollution and stress.

Ancient Egyptians, including Cleopatra used the metal to heal sore throats and wounds. Dermatologist Joshua Zeichner, director of cosmetic and clinical research at Mount Sinai's Department of Dermatology in New York told Harper’s Bazaar, “Copper definitely plays an important role in maintaining healthy skin. It helps to develop collagen and elastin, which maintain the strength of the skin, and it promotes the production of skin-plumping hyaluronic acid. It also has antibacterial and antifungal properties, which help prevent infections.”
