The use of gold for healing purposes has been used since ancient Egypt times. Cleopatra is reported to have slept in a gold mask nightly to keep her skin radiant. The ancients believed that gold in the body worked by stimulating the life force and raising the level of vibration on all levels. Today, science supports these stories with fact by recognizing the stability that gold treatments bring to skin. Gold connects with the electrons present in the cells that are sensitive to electric charges. Under the energy of gold, these ions become active and rejoin broken cellular connections.
Associate Producer Katie Donbanvand of In-Style magazine took this to test by trying out a gold facial. She swears her experience with a 24 gold facial treatment left her skin luminous. She went further by not wearing makeup, and still received several compliments on her glowing skin.
As it is a pricey facial treatment, it is best used for special occasions.
