Treat your face like gold… with gold!
Having a facial is always a treat, but the new gold facial, aka EMK Placental Facial, is without a doubt an experience everyone should have. With 24-carat gold massaged into your face during an hour-long relaxing facial, you won’t only feel like a celebrity, but look like one too. It’s not just big stars like Bar Refaeli, Simon Cowell and Eva Longoria who are enjoying it, but you can too now that it’s in South Africa. Believed to improve skin texture, tone, appearance, redness, elasticity, wrinkles, dark spots and hydration, sources say the hot new facial on the market is a must – and the best part is, many believe it’s actually not that new. According to reports, it was used back in the Cleopatra days – the Egyptian queen was rumoured to have slept with gold on her face every night to maintain her beauty.
Dr Nicole Kanaris from Mode De Vie in Greenstone, Johannesburg, is the first doctor to offer the EMK Placental Facial in the country, and Celeb Styles got to enjoy the treatment recently.
