When this info made its way to my inbox, it immediately grabbed my attention. You didn’t misread that title. Today’s blog post is about a luxurious facial offered only at the Dr. Hauschka Spa in Montreal and yes, that’s 24K gold.
Using cosmetic-grade gold leaves, Enaam Takla, co-owner of the Dr.Hauschka Spa in Montreal, has developed the Holistic 24 Karat Gold Facial. (This procedure brings new meaning to the word luxury.) It was developed to help diminish skin imperfections, rejuvenate the skin and minimize blemishes, wrinkles and fine lines. So the treatment really does target a little bit of everything.
Gold being good for the complexion may seem like news to you but it’s actually an age-old secret. Cleopatra was said to sleep with a gold mask every night and, as we all know, her glowing complexion and flawless face is one that has attracted attention from all over the world throughout the centuries.
The two-hour treatment offered at the Dr. Hauschka Spa in Montreal ($270 per treatment) stimulates the lymphatic system which makes the skin receptive to the benefits of the gold leaves which are spread and pressed onto the skin’s surface. The gold deeply penetrates the skin to release negative ions and get rid of free radicals (the enemy!). The skin looks and feels more radiant after this holistic treatment.
What do you think? Would you be willing to try out this exotic facial treatment?
