Bionic Experiment: Wear a necklace, heal your acne?

by Bionic Beauty on 24.May.2010 · 11 comments

This may sound crazy, but it actually works! I’ve battled with back and chest acne my entire life.  This past week I noticed my acne had vanished from my chest.  I’m already aware of the ASSO gold soap working on acne, but I haven’t been using it recently. I also know from countless hours studying skin care ingredients that gold has beneficial healing properties.

What I have been doing is wearing an 18 karat gold necklace with a large gold pendant that my Mom gave me for Christmas.  The necklace is very special to me as it’s from Arabia, where I grew up. I’ve been wearing it since the holidays and haven’t taken it off.

BionicBionic Beauty - Treating body acne with a gold necklace

A lightbulb popped on in my head “Wow! Could it be this gold necklace?” I was excited at this potential experiment, so I switched the pendant to hang on my back.  My upper-to-mid back is the seemingly most impossible place to apply product (as you all know, I’m sure!). The weight of my pendant causes a frequent “rubbing” action of the gold against my skin.

Sure enough, my back acne cleared up as well – this is just too awesome!

To take the experiment one-step further, I removed the necklace for a few days and did nothing to treat my acne.  It came back within two days. I put the necklace back on, and it was gone again within two days!

I make sure to keep the necklace clean; and I plan to buy a couple more 18 kt. gold chains of different lengths. What a fun way to get rid of the nasty acne! A quality gold necklace at first glance seems pricey (I found a great buy on this 18 inch 18kt gold chain necklace for $46.99Bionic Beauty - Treating body acne with a gold necklace on Amazon); but if you have acne to the point that I do the up-front cost may actually save you money. I have spent a small fortune over the years trying every product on the planet to cure my acne.

I’d love to hear feedback from any of you who decide to join this experiment! I am curious if 14 karat gold works as well. Copper and silver also contain many healing properties and are also used in skincare products (such as copper peptides). I think I’ll try silver next!

So please adorn yourself and share feedback in this experiment. I thought what better way to research this than ask other Bionic Beauties to join in on the lab test! (Now you have a good reason to go buy a nice necklace too!)

Stay Bionic,

NOW THIS IS INTERESTING….IT MAKES SO MUCH SENSE IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT. HERBS, METAL, MINERALS ARE ALL NATURAL FROM WHAT THE EARTH HAS PROVIDED US SINCE THE BEGINNING OF TIME. IT IS ALL UNDER OUR NOSES FROM NATURAL BLESSINGS AND YET COMPANIES ARE TRYING TO REPRODUCE ANY PRODUCT TO RELIEVE US FROM OUR FLAWS. NOW, I AM JUST HOPING THAT THEY DO NOT COME UP WITH “RUBBING DIAMONDS” ON OUR BODIES WILL MAKE US PERFECT. I COULD NOT AFFORD THAT ONE !!! THANKS FOR THE TIP, I WILL PASS THE WORD ON .

Bronnie, is it solid 18k or just plated? A combo?

I’m thrilled for your results. :-) I have lots of silver jewelry, and not tons of acne. Occasional and minor, yes. But I have no clue if my silver jewelry has any part in the whole thing. I say, whatever works, use it.

Tashi,
The pendant is solid 18 K, as well as the chain, it came from when I lived in Arabia as a kid (Mom gave it to Me) So it was a rare and unique treasure..but I’d love to see if plated works because 18K is beautiful but soft and too special to really wear everyday. I wore it once the lightbulb popped on inside my head, especially on my back under by long hair!

Silver is supposed to have even more skin healing benefits than gold from what I have read….

Thanks everyone for your comment’s and thank’s Jami for finding one that is affordable, I actually was going to buy the one from Amazon to try it next.

Yes, it does make sense…I just never really thought about it.

Bronnie, thanks again! I bet your 18k jewelry is very special and treasured, for sure. :-) My mom has given me a couple of 14k rings, and a bunch of silver rings and necklaces over the years. Please let us know if plated stuff works for you. Good luck!

Now that I think about it, no one at the little jewelry store I go to has facial acne. Hmmm…. :-) lol

I followed the link from this article to the ASSO Gold soap article, and it sounded so positive that I purchased one. But now that I’m looking for other reviews, there is pretty much nothing but what you wrote, Bronnie.

I was wondering if any body has had trouble with ordering from the site, because they seem to be linked to several scam sites, and now I am getting worried.

Should I be worried or will my product actually come (and hopefully work well)?

Hi Stacy, You can rest assured that any site I link to from Bionic-Beauty.com is an actual reliable company. I never link to scam websites since that would devalue BB’s reputation (and my personal reputation as well). I hope that helps set your mind at ease. Feel free to email me back or comment back with any questions.

As for your order with ASSO, I have ordered from them once and my order went fine. Bronnie has ordered from them several times as well. They don’t have many reviews on the web since many bloggers only review what is sent to them for free. However Bronnie and I spend most of our meager funds on our products as well, that way we can cover some of the newest items or the indie-companies that we love. A lot of times, those indie companies don’t have the money to send out press samples. hopefully this helps explain things a bit. Like I said, I’m here to answer any of your questions!

And welcome to Bionic Beauty! I truly hope to see you around the blog in the future!
Best regards,
Jami

P.S. I edited out the links you posted in your comment to those other websites. I don’t mind people linking in comments to other sites, but those were sort of questionable. And Google (and other search engines) can penalize *my* site (BB) for linking to “bad neighborhood” websites. Craziness, but true. So if anyone needs the links, please use the contact form or email me directly. :)

Stacy,
I love the ASSO and have used and ordered it for going on 3 years now and have never had any problem’s. I am not sure why it isn’t marketed more, it work’s so well..but I never have any doubts when ordering…
Thank YOU for voicing your concern, there may be other’s out there that didn’t want to ask….
My goal is to find good products and share the good finds with our reader’s.
Hope it works for your acne!!

Tashi,
You crack Me up! If anyone tries the plated, please share, silver too. One thing that helped was the weight of the medallion, it moved around alot….

:::curtsying::: You’re welcome. 😀 I’ll be here all week! LOL

As for the healing properties of silver, and my experiences with the silver jewelry I have, I’m not sure if there have been any differences. I truly don’t know. I never have a huge acne problem. I always wear several necklaces constantly, every day, which are silver chains and pendants. I wear a pair of cubic circonia stud earrings in solid 14k gold settings, and a couple of silver bracelets. How far-reaching are the metal’s effects supposed to go? Do we know? Or is it pretty much a direct area thing (if that makes sense)?
