According Dr upasna nagpalaesthetic physician"Gold is believed to have several benefits for the skin, including antioxidant, anti inflammatory and anti microbial properties."

She further added, skin care products like serums and creams that contain gold may have some merit because your skin gets the apparent or claimed benefits of gold on a daily, consistent basis.

However, a facial, that you make do once in 30-10 days or even once in a week, can not possibly derive much benefit from gold, which already lacks any significant evidence backing it.

Gold facials always involve other skin care steps, other than just applying a gold mask.

These steps may be applying a hydrating serum, using oxygen and facial massages to improve blood circulation, exfoliation and more.

The benefits reported after a gold facial is most definitely due to these other steps of the facial, other than the gold mask.
