Royal treatment with gold
Throughout history, gold has been prized for its luxury and beauty. In the era of Cleopatra, pure gold was used as a means of maintaining a youthful skin appearance. Historians have long believed that Cleopatra slept with a gold mask every night. In ancient Rome, gold wraps were used to treat various skin problems. Even in ancient Chinese medicine, gold held the key to youth, so the Empress of the Ch'ing Dynasty massaged her face with a gold roller every day.
