We may soon have to take up a new mantra, as we push aside diamonds being a girls best friend to gold, as a company in South Carolina says it has made a breakthrough and now offers women the oppertunity to take gold facials.
UMO is the manufacturing company behind the new craze, and women from all over the United States are flocking to get the treatment.
According to COO of the company, Ron Razeggi, he had this to say as to how it works: "The skin tries to reject the gold because it's a foreign object. In order to do that, it builds new cells.
"Right now, the body produces new cells every 28 days. But this accelerates the cell-building and, as a result, it firms and tightens the skin."
Called the "Luxe 24 Karat Gold Facial," the treatment only uses the highest grade of gold leaf, where the gold leaf is laid upon the face and then massaged into the skin, which takes approximately 80 minutes to complete. The cost is about $350.
I guess this isn't something gold investors need to be too concerned with as to creating a supply problem for gold any time soon. But we better watch the ladies. If this catches on, we better hide our gold, or look for the price to increase.;-)
Oh by the way, do the ladies get to keep the gold after their facial?
