I was watching The One Show on BBC1 this week and they were describingthe latest use of gold : the gold facial. 24 carat gold leaf is applied to the face and left for several hours. It is said to be ant--ageing as iyt facvilitates lymphatic drainage and also protects against collagen degradation.

It can also be applied as nano-particles in the form of a cream.

It is apparently a part of the Indian system of ayurveda.
