Now, in her latest show of costly pampering, Lisa Snowdon appears to be going for the Egyptian pharaoh look.

She had gold leaf applied to her cheeks, nose, lips and chin in a bizarre treatment that certainly left her glowing. The TV presenter, 46, shared pictures and videos of herself on social media which showed her face coated in the pure gold, while her neck was covered in silver leaf.

The model and former Strictly Come Dancing contestant, who dated George Clooney for five years, is known for trying unorthodox treatments.

In May she posted pictures of herself having cosmetic acupuncture, which is touted as a natural alternative to Botox.

The 24-carat treatment, which costs £160 (R3,000) for a 50ml bottle, is said to exfoliate the skin, while the gold particles provide a lifting effect by improving the flow of blood to the tissues, which helps to restore elasticity.

Miss Snowdon was treated by Russian doctor Thiago Freire, who specialises in anti-ageing medicine. Posting the images to her 196,000 followers, she wrote: ‘Had the most luxurious golden skin renewal facial yesterday... I was literally wrapped in pure 24K gold leaf, (I know completely decadent) which was applied in three stages.

Living my life likes it GOLDEN! 🌟🌟🌟🌟Had the most luxurious golden skin renewal facial yesterday with @doc.thiago from @emk_skincare_official . I was literally wrapped in pure 24K Gold Leaf, ( I know completely decadent )which was applied in three stages which you can see if you swipe across. 🌟. ..... . More then just a facial there was intense reiki healing that my body just couldn’t get enough of, especially as I have been feeling under the weather this week. 🙌🏽.. The Gold was then massaged into my skin using powerful pure plant placenta from EMK Rescue Serum, which when combined with the gold, helps to support the skins collagen, resulting in glowing, healthy, plumper skin, improves circulation, calms inflammation all the good stuff! 🌟🌟🌟 . You know I’m all about the glow, this facial takes it to another level! 💥 . The treatment took a little longer than usual as I wanted to keep taking photos!! 🤷🏻‍♀️😂 Lots of massage, some blue light and radio frequency for healing, and then Dr Thiago finished with beautiful powerful affirmations and sent me off with a soundcloud with the best meditation that I did last night before bed... please come back to London again soon!! ✈️🙏🏽 #beauty #bblogger #skincare #emk #docthiago #goldenlady #24k #healing #reiki #youglowgirl
