Believe it or not: 24K gold facials are a real thing. Gold can activate the basal cells of the skin, which are responsible for most of the elasticity in the skin. So, it reduces wrinkles and all the small imperfections of the skin, refreshing the skin altogether.
Because the gold is very conductive material, the ions in gold stimulate the cells and the nerves in the body. The veins’ elasticity is also stimulated leading to improved blood circulation. Gold will increase the metabolism rate of skin cells so they will accelerate the secretion of the waste.
Gold can help to stimulate the cells and have a healthy skin.
By stimulating the skin metabolism, it’s dryness will be reduced, too – so the anti-aging process kicks off. Of course, lots of water is highly recommended to complement the gold treatments.
“Gold is used as an anti-aging ingredient, as it can help reduce inflammation, which is a cause of acne and hyper-pigmentation,” explained Dr. Paul Jarrod Frank, an N.Y.C.-based cosmetic dermatologist. “When applied topically, it also helps brighten the skin.”
Some luxury spas use 24-carat gold leafs as treatment to moisturize the skin and making it firmer. The specialists say that gold also locks in moisture and keeps skin firm by maintaining collagen in the skin and inhibiting the breakdown of elastin.
Gold facial treatment can be availed at any reputed spa or beauty salon and it includes the application of 24-carat gold foil mask, so believe me – it’s not cheap.
So, the gold facial pampering session sound interesting? The best part is that this facial is deemed to be completely safe on your skin, but not so safe for your wallet 🙂
