What Is It?
How much do you pay for your facials? ₹500? or maybe ₹1500 or a max of ₹2000? What if we told you that there’s a facial in Dubai that costs a whopping ₹42,400? Oh, and it uses real gold!
If you thought Dubai is the land of the royals, you’re correct. It starts with a regular facial where you have to undergo the cleansing and exfoliating your skin before the actual gold treatment begins. Using a serum of ions and an ultrasonic device, the gold peel is applied to the skin. But beware, you’re supposed to lie ultra still so that not even a molecule of the peel falls off. Then the spa therapist will be using expert hands to massage the gold peel and it will be absorbed into your skin.
Yes, there’s no need to wash off the remnants because your skin actually absorbs the gold used in this facial.

What Is It Used For?
Gold is an exceptional ingredient in keeping young and healthy looking skin. It is used to treat blemishes, wrinkles, skin allergies, dark circles, pigmentation and maintaining the glow of the skin.
Saudi women tend to book appointments for the gold facial around twice or thrice a month. It is definitely a mark of wealth among the sheikhs of Dubai. But usually, the people who sign up for the gold facial wish to ‘glow’ for a certain occasion like their weddings or birthdays.
