Here’s an interesting, and maybe a little disturbing, new beauty product: the Akaishi Aluminum Foil Facial.
Inventorspot.com reports on the latest Japanese skin care technology that hydrates your skin by wrapping your face in a purple aluminum sheet. The mask covers your face, except for your eyes and nose of course, and is secured in back with a Velcro strap.Theoretically it works like a little sauna: your perspiration is trapped close to the skin giving it a plump hydrated feel and a dewy fresh look. Of course without some kind of occlusive agent to lock in this moisture your skin will dry out again once you remove the mask. I suppose you could just wear the mask all the time, as long you’re not outside in a lightening storm. This could be even better than the aluminum foil hat that Sarah Bellum wears to keep out those voices in her head!
