A gold facial is honestly one of the most indulgent spa treatments we can think of. But while they were once a pampering method reserved only for celebrities and ancient royals, these days you’ll find gold facials and gold face masks popping up on high-end spa menus everywhere. Sure, they can be pricey, but sometimes, you just have to spoil yourself. And unlike a bottle of wine, a tub of ice cream, or a night spent vegging out in front of the TV, gold facials are actually good for you.
But what does all that gold actually do? Read on to find out all about how the luxury metal can transform your skin—we promise you’ll never again consider it an extravagance to buy raw cookie dough just for snacking.
Gold facials can differ from spa to spa, but generally they follow a traditional facial format—cleansing, exfoliation, extractions, etc.—but include one of the most decadent add-ons ever invented: a gold face mask. Depending on the technique used, this might involve the aesthetician massaging sheets of 24-karat gold leaf onto your skin. Or, they might coat your face with colloidal gold, a liquid solution with gold nanoparticles suspended in it.
If this whole idea seems to have trended rather suddenly, there’s good reason for that. The gold facial has grown in popularity since 2006, when a Japanese company pioneered a method for helping the metal penetrate surface layers of skin.
Other than giving you a great excuse to take a selfie, what is all that gold doing on your face?
Gold has long been used in Ayurvedic medicine and ancient skincare—Cleopatra may have been a fan—and modern aestheticians stand by its firming and anti-aging benefits. Gold’s antioxidant properties are said to fight off environmental toxins and sun damage. Clients may find their skin feeling softer and more supple thanks to accelerated cell regeneration and elastin production.
Dermatologists, however, caution that some people can have an adverse reaction, particularly those who experience contact dermatitis when wearing jewelry.
Many at-home beauty treatments are also incorporating gold into their list of ingredients. Using one of these in your routine can be a great way to get some of the benefits of gold without breaking the bank.

Boosted by its traditionalist origins, the slicked-back hairstyle has reemerged as a contemporary favourite. Able to be interpreted for different hair types, lengths and occasions, the wide variety of ways this style can be worn can be overwhelming. So, to help you find your perfect match, we’ve rounded up the top, sleek styles around for your viewing. These are the best slicked back hairstyles for men right now.
For a simple, timeless take on the slicked-back trend, opt for classic styling. For this look, use a wet look gel or pomade for decent hold with a glossy touch. Comb hair back repetitively and thoroughly. Be mindful of products that are too rigid as they will make the hair look flat. Opt for a product which will give your locks a thicker appearance despite its pulled-back structure.
A traditional way to interpret slicked-back hairstyles is to complement this hair trend with facial hair. Opt for a light beard or strategic scruff to amplify the look of your slicked-back hairstyle. Be mindful of your face shape and the proportions of your features when trying out this trend. Facial hair will add a dimensional element to your slicked-back look, creating a complementary appearance.
50’s fictional style muses, like Don Draper, are no doubt pivotal in the reemergence of the side part slick back. To appropriate such a Mad Men style for yourself, create a sharp part with a silkier product, which will afford a greater sleekness to your look. Additionally, ensure you have determined which side your part appears most flattering on for appropriate styling.
Much like all trends, when done right, the man bun works incredibly well. When done wrong, this trend can register as unflattering and misappropriated. Consider a beard or facial hair when trying out this version of the slicked-backed hairstyle and contemplate your features when determining whether a man bun would look flattering on you.
The slick back pompadour is a traditional hairstyle that has seen a resurgence in recent years. As such, it’s an excellent style that’s both classic and on-trend. To create the look, you need to achieve a neat, smoothed-back style that’s full of volume. To do so, try using volume-boosting products and blow-drying your hair upside down to direct roots upward.
Men with long hair can also rock a slicked-back style. Perfect for formal functions, a sleek look is ideal for giving grown out locks a sophisticated touch. To nail the hairstyle, just comb your long mane back and tuck it behind your ears. Then, use a flexible hairspray for a soft appearance or a firm-hold mousse or wet-look pomade for a bolder aesthetic. Remember though; you won’t need to use a lot as the weight of your hair will help keep it in place.
The slick back undercut is another classic hairstyle that has seen a resurgence in recent years. The look, which features a short back and sides with the hair on the top left longer, is perfect for both formal and casual occasions. Thanks to its length and shape, it’s also seriously simple to style.
The blow-dried slick back requires a good quality volumising hair product such as a pomade or a mousse, which will add depth to the hair and give it a distinctly different appearance than the typical shiny, wet look. This version of the popular hair trend hinges on volume, so ensure your nominated product boosts hair thickness without adding frizz.
Curly hair can be notoriously difficult to style, but that doesn’t mean you can’t rock a killer slicked-back look. When your hair is damp, just use a blow-dryer and wide-tooth comb to help direct your locks away from your face. Then, if you wish to maintain your natural waves, add sea salt spray and choose a flexible hold product, such as a light mouse. Finally, comb your hair back using your hands and allow your locks to dry naturally for a great slicked-back hairstyle with texture.
For gentlemen with wavy hair, rock this hair trend with slicked back styling specifically for your natural hair type. Utilise a flexible hold product like a lighter mousse, which will provide a bit more flexibility when it comes to harnessing your curls. Additionally, be sure to opt for a messier look, which will add dimension to the natural volume created by your waves

Here’s How to Find the Best Sunglasses for Your Face Shape!
Offset your round features with geometric shaped sunglasses. Rectangular frames will help elongate your face, while cat eyes sharpen your soft features. Let Selena Gomez in a pair of square aviators be your guide.
Styles that work: Rectangular, sharp cat eyes
Opposite of gals with round faces, you should offset your sharper features with curvier frames. Olivia Wilde is a great example of a woman who knows her face shape, wearing modern cat eyes with rounded edges that curve downward.
Styles that work: Aviators, butterfly, cat eye
If you have a broad brow and narrow chin similar to Kylie Jenner, try a style with bottom-heavy frames. Shapes that are parallel and extend past the width of your face complement your strong jawline. Aviators are also another great option as the silhouette contrasts your heart-shaped face.
Styles that work: Exaggerated bottoms, rectangular, aviators
Lucky you! Oval-shaped faces have the most wiggle room when choosing their eyewear. Like Rihanna, you basically get to wear whatever you want. Go with round shapes if you’re an Almost Famous-Penny Lane type of gal or edgier shapes if you’re more Good Girl Gone Bad.
Styles that work: Circular, rectangular, over-sized, round
