Historians have said that Cleopatra slept in one every night. Nowadays, this precious metal is loved by many skincare experts who swear by its anti-aging and firming benefits. If you fancy a slice of the glittering action (who wouldn’t?), read on to find out how this uber-glam treatment can transform your skin - and what to expect when you go.

What to expect?

So how does it work? Well, it all depends on where you go and how much you’re willing to spend. Umo Inc. is the Japanese firm that developed the modern-day treatment; to get the most out of your session, we suggest you stick to clinics that use their signature products. If you do, your esthetician will combine gold leaf with fancy elements like ions and Gamma PGA that together will be massaged into your face to help boost your skin’s appearance. But that’s not all. Opt for multiple sessions, and expect to see long term beauty benefits as your skin’s inner cells are replaced and renewed. Talk about striking gold...

Know before you go

  • While you might think that a 24-carat gold facial comes with an eye-watering price tag, this treatment can be enjoyed for as little as £150; multiple treatments will cost more, but often come at a discounted rate, so do ask your local clinic.
  • It’s unlikely that you’ll suffer a reaction from a 24-carat gold facial, as it carries none of the risks of invasive procedures. However, we’d advise you consult your doctor if you have a known jewellery allergy.
  • Psst! Did you know that gold has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years?

The sciencey stuff

Gold is pretty much magic. Not only have scientists found that the ions present can stimulate new cells in the body, thus improving your skin’s overall vitality, but it can make you look and feel younger too. How? Gold contains many antibacterial properties. These help promote skin renewal and treat pesky skin conditions like ulcers and general inflammation. It also aids the production of collagen levels so that skin appears more smooth and toned. And they say that all that glitters isn’t gold...
