Go for gold. Your skin doesn’t often get to truly indulge itself, spending all of its time fighting rain, wind, city pollution and a grimy weekend at a festival. So it’s time to literally put your money where your mouth is and treat your face to the most luxurious of facials with 24 carat gold.
The 24 carat gold facial is the ultimate non-invasive skin rejuvenating treatment, using sheets of the highest grade of gold to lift and firm skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and lighten skin to look its best. Your therapist will massage a hydrating compound into your skin before nano-misting prepares it for the application of the gold. Pure 24 carat gold sheets are placed over your face, misted again to lock in the golden goodness, and massaged in gently and completely.
Skin tries to reject gold as it’s a foreign object, and to do that it builds new cells. Usually, new cells are produced approximately every 28 days, but this facial accelerates the speed in which your skin builds cells and as a result, firms and tightens skin to leave it glowing and refreshed. The benefits of gold include slowing down collagen depletion and breakdown of elastin to prevent sagging skin, improving blood circulation and reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Designed for today’s woman, the 24 carat gold facial is enjoyable and loved by celebrities– much nicer than explaining to a loved one you’ve just had seaweed plastered all over your face, and it leaves skin glowing and radiant. The latest in the trend of luxury treatments, it’s money put to good use...literally.
If you’ve got enough cash to splash, then a 24 carat gold facial seems the perfect way to indulge in some luxury pampering. Some might think it’s a waste of money but others agree that it’s a decadent way of exploring new and interesting treatments to help with lifting and firming skin, and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Absurdly luxurious, gold has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years and known as the key to youth in traditional Chinese medicine, and now the 24 carat gold facial is a modern way of using gold for beauty benefits.
It was said that Cleopatra slept in a pure gold mask every night, believing that it would encourage her immune system to work. Of course we all know Cleo was a little bit out-there but throughout history, gold has been revered for its beautifying and healing properties. Its lack of toxicity and ability to conduct energy makes it a perfect tool for strengthening skin and slowing down the effects of ageing from taking its toll. It can’t get more luxurious than that.
