Going For Gold: The Peninsula Spa Launches the Instant Light Complexion Facial
With inspirations drawn from best-kept beauty secret of the Egyptian Queen Cleopatra, the newly launched facial aims to indulge guests with a 24-Carat Gold Chain Mask
Aside from being known as a ruler and seductress, Egyptian Queen Cleopatra is also hailed as one of the most beautiful women in history.
According to legend, one of Cleopatra’s beauty rituals was to sleep with a golden mask on her face. Fast forward to several thousand years later, modern icons such as Nicole Kidman and Cameron Diaz are also acolytes of the gold facial due to its anti-inflammatory and anti-ageing properties.
The beauty-obsessed in the city will be glad to hear that The Peninsula Spa is offering a new treatment this April that pay tribute to the legendary icon’s beauty secret.
Featuring a 24-Carat Gold Chain Mask, The Instant Light Complexion Facial from Margy’s Monte Carlo takes advantage of the unique properties of gold to revitalise the skin.
Designed for all skin types and aims to slow down collagen depletion and the breakdown of elastin, the 90-minute treatment strives to create an instant brightening effect on the skin.
By using a gold chain mask to transmit electro-acoustic signals and conduct ions, the facial stimulates cellular growth on the skin’s basal layer, while special software allows the therapist to change how the mask behaves by choosing between programmes that respectively detox, stimulate, regenerate or illuminate the skin.
The gold also improves blood circulation, restores elasticity to skin tissue, fights inflammation, reduces dryness and renews cells. Needless to say, the Instant Light Complexion Facial is the only treatment of its kind in the world.
