Do you have a hard time keeping up with all the new beauty trends? They seem to be coming at us non-stop! It’s an exciting time for at-home skincare, for sure. There are so many high-quality spa-level products that we can use at home.
A new name on the block is nanosilver – but also colloidal silver.
Let’s figure it out together.
First off, we are talking about good old silver.
Who knew, but the shiny white metal is a natural antibiotic. (Antibiotic means it kills bacteria). Since ancient times, silver has been recognized for its medical benefits. Fun fact: Ancient Romans ate off of silver in hopes that it would kill the bacteria in their food – thus, “silverware”!
In the last 15 years or so, silver in a teeny, tiny form, has emerged as a bacteria fighter in many everyday products. From socks to toothbrushes, it’s used to neutralize bacteria.
What are these small little particles of silver called? You guessed it!
Ding Ding Ding: Nanosilver!
To give you an idea of how small the particles are, nano is a prefix meaning a billionth so that it can get into really, really small places like your pores.
Now onto COLLOIDAL SILVER. What is the difference?
Colloidal just means the liquid in which the silver particles are suspended. When nanosilver is in liquid, it has better disbursement upon a large area. So it’s kind of like the form of delivery for the nanosilver.
SO WHAT ABOUT SKINCARE?
As used in skincare, the reason nanosilver is such a great acne fighter is that the small silver particles nearly suffocate the bacteria by cutting off its cellular respiration. They are thus putting an end to bacteria, which causes acne.
Well, lucky for us, nanosilver is not only known for its antiseptic qualities – but its anti-inflammatory properties soothe the skin as well. According to Byrdie.com, “…studies have shown colloidal silver triggers healing effects in tissue, which makes it great for scarred and aging skin.”
So if you are looking for something to soothe your dry, sensitive, or acne-prone skin, look for nanosilver. But are you also looking for general healing of aging skin too? And we ALL have aging skin, every day! Nanosilver will help YOU glow, too!
