Karat Power Skincare (2): Sleek Silver

by Leslie Yip

Geisha Secrets 

Inspired by the centuries-old beauty rituals of Kyoto geishas, this multi-tasking beauty oil is made from Japanese camellias that grow on the goto islands. The seeds are cold-pressed to extract the essential oil, which is naturally rich in antioxidants and essential fatty acids.

Crushed 23-karat gold flakes leave a subtle gleam on the skin. Maximum benefits can be achieved when used in conjunction with the gold-leafed massager. In the morning, use the massager chilled to tighten and awake skin. (it is called The asayake, or “morning glow” ritual.) in the evening, warm the massager in a cup of hot water for Yuyake (or “evening glow”), which helps release tension and detoxify through lymphatic draining.

The Silver Bullet

Are you troubled by breakouts and blemishes? omorovicza finds the cure with shiny white metal. “Colloidal silver has been used for centuries due to its incredible antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties,” explains adrienne Harsanyi, global senior facialist at omorovicza. “Before the introduction of antibiotics, it was even used to treat antimicrobial conditions. We use silver in our range because of this, and when it’s combined with other blemish-busting ingredients, such as niacinamide and salicylic acid found in the omorovicza silver Collection, it provides an effective solution for those seeking to minimize the effects of acne, blemishes and imperfections.”
