UMO's Ultimate 24-Carat Gold Facial

UMO's Ultimate 24-Carat Gold Facial

Yowzers! Talk about bringing on the bling. The Tokyo-based UMO Salon has just introduced the world's first-ever 24-carat gold facial — and, yes, it is being offered in the United States. For about $300 (that's 30,000 yen), you can enjoy the rejuvenating effects of precious gold on your face.

Gold is a very soft metal that absorbs quickly and deeply into the skin. Why, you might ask, would you want to absorb gold? It is believed to firm and brighten skin, reduce wrinkles, help drain lymph nodes and get rid of toxins, stimulate blood circulation, and help skin cells replenish at a faster pace than they would naturally grow.

The UMO facial consists of a cleansing treatment and a massage before the paper-thin 24-carat gold sheets are applied to the face. So, if you can justify spending double the price of a normal a facial, at least it seems like you are getting your money's worth.

I'll be it's the status symbol behind a gold facial, rather than the cosmetic properties of the gold used, that's popularizing this...

In India they actually eat silver because it's supposed to have natural antibiotic properties, so I won't poo poo this.

This looks odd. Can you salvage the gold leaf afterwards? :) I think the facial would a cool photoshop. I'm thinking D & G
