How useful is the golden mask really?
Recently, cosmetics with natural ingredients have become popular: pearls, previously unknown algae, medicinal oils. But the most famous among them is the golden mask. Is it really useful?
Types of masks
According to the manufacturers, natural 24-carat gold (sample 999) is included in the product. With proper treatment, this metal begins to contact with the skin and have a healing effect on it.
In the market of cosmetic products golden face mask is presented in a variety of variations.
The cheapest form, the price of which does not exceed 150 rubles (50 hryvnia). It is presented in the form of a yellow-golden powder, packed in a small bag. To use the tool, you need to dilute it with a liquid in a certain ratio, like a clay mask.
You will agree that for such a price it is unlikely there will be real gold in the package, or its weight in the overall composition is negligible.
Typically, these tools are sold in a sealed package - they are presented in the form of a rounded napkin that follows the contours of the face with slots for eyes and mouth. The material is immersed in a special solution, which contains gold particles.
Here prices can be very different, ranging from 500 rubles (200 hryvnia).
This golden mask is similar in appearance and application to a napkin with the difference that it is almost entirely made of pure gold. It turns out that you put a whole gold plate on your face.
Naturally, such a pleasure is more expensive than simple cosmetics - on average, from 7 to 15 thousand rubles (3-7 thousand hryvnia).
In addition, many beauty salons offer a mask with gold - the cost is about 5 thousand rubles (one and a half thousand hryvnia).

It is believed that the skin receives charged ions from the precious metal, which penetrate into the deep layers of the dermis and improve blood circulation. Due to this, the process of renewal of the upper keratinous cell layer is accelerated, the flow of oxygen and moisture to it is improved.
The tool has the following effect:
- smoothes and tightens - rejuvenating mask allows you to get rid of the most pronounced wrinkles, gives the skin elasticity, tightens;
- separate flabby and sagging areas (facial contours, cheeks);
- brightens - perfectly fights freckles, spider veins and nets, evens the complexion;
- removes redness, inflammation, rash;
- eliminates peeling due to the influx of moisture to the lower layers of the dermis.
The tool is suitable for use by owners of all skin types, but is especially useful for those who have dry skin.
It is clear that in 1 session it is impossible to comply with all these requirements. To achieve the desired result, you will need a set of procedures designed for several weeks. Such a pleasure will be expensive, considering what component is the main component in the composition of medical cosmetics.
