14. Carat Gold Facial
A lot of celebrities and other wealthy people love sheer opulence so, of course, they wouldn’t pass up the opportunity to have gold splattered all over their faces. Yes, 24-carat gold facials are a real thing. And the price reflects it, too—these facials can cost hundreds of dollars and may even go up to $1200.
They are said to improve skin texture, tone, wrinkles, dark spots, and more. This is because gold is an anti-inflammatory (so it can help to reduce redness) and it contains ions that are said to stimulate blood flow and slow down collagen depletion. It’s believed that even the Egyptian pharaoh, Cleopatra, used gold to keep her skin looking young and beautiful. We know we’d choose gold over leeches any day!
