How to Fade the Visibility of Dark Spots on Your Face

Woman with even skin after using deep peeling products

Do you struggle with hyperpigmented skin?

A specific compound in our skin, melanin, is responsible for giving our skin, eyes, and hair their natural color. And the more melanin your body produces, the darker the color.

Hyperpigmentation occurs as a result of the over-production of melanin in some parts of the skin, causing them to appear in a darker hue. These dark spots are not typically a cause for concern, but they can make the face look patchy and uneven.

And that’s what OROGOLD is here to help you with! Today, we’ll be discussing how to fade the visibility of dark spots on the skin, so that you can enjoy an even and bright appearance once again.

Deep Peeling Treatments

24K Deep Peeling

Have you tried exfoliating your skin to fade the look of dark spots? We’re not talking about scrubs; those are physical exfoliants. Although they might help too, chemical exfoliants are known to work on a deeper level within your skin. Hence the term “deep peeling.” So, you’re bound to notice better results with the latter.

If you’re new to the world of chemical exfoliants and deep peeling solutions, don’t worry because we’ve got it covered! Unlike physical exfoliants that rely on rubbing off dead cells, chemical exfoliants work by loosening the bonds between the cells. These formulas incorporate acids and enzymes to break down the sugars and proteins holding the dead cells together in the upper layer of the skin. This way, there are no abrasive techniques involved.

Deep peeling treatments work exceptionally well for alleviating the look of acne, fine lines, and wrinkles. They can smooth out the appearance of your skin’s texture and tone, giving it a vibrant glow! And that’s just scratching the surface; there are a whole host of benefits that chemical peels offer. Getting rid of dead cells via chemical exfoliation can help your skin absorb your spot treatments and serums better, making them much more effective.

But let’s move on to the most common acids you’d find in your deep peeling solutions. Basically, there are three types of chemical peels: superficial, medium-depth, and deep peeling. Superficial peels only penetrate your skin’s outer layer, medium-depth peels work on the entire epidermis, and deep peeling solutions work on the mid-reticular dermis.

What’s in a Deep Peeling Product?

Glycolic acid is among the most common AHAs used to make a deep peeling solution. Its molecules are the smallest-sized ones when compared to other AHAs. This makes it easy for glycolic acid to absorb into your skin and exfoliate it better. This acid works by dissolving the “glue” that holds dead, darkened skin cells.

But if you feel like your skin is a little too sensitive to deal with the drying effects that glycolic acid can have, mandelic acid should be your go-to! The chemical is derived from bitter almonds and has the largest molecules compared to all other AHAs. But what does that mean for your skin? It means mandelic acid penetrates your skin slowly, without leading to any irritation. Mandelic acid is a premium skincare ingredient when it comes to diminishing the look of acne, and it also works wonders for fading the visibility of dark spots on your face!

Incorporate These Essential Vitamins Into Your Routine

Vitamins play a powerful role in keeping us happy and healthy. And that doesn’t just go for our body. Vitamins have sensational topical benefits that can keep your skin looking healthy and fresh.

There are many vitamins that play a key role in lightening the skin, thereby reducing the look of dark spots. But the top three that we’d recommend are vitamin A, vitamin C, and vitamin E. You can incorporate vitamins in the form of cleansers, serums, moisturizers, and exfoliants. But how do they help fade the visibility of dark spots?

  • Vitamin A (the family of retinoids) is known to enhance your complexion’s tone and texture by diminishing the appearance of photoaging. It works exceptionally well if you have dark spots as a result of acne.
  • Vitamin C is another great skincare ingredient because of how it can help brighten the look of dark spots on your skin left behind as a result of pimples. It also works great to reduce the look of melasma and sun spots.
  • Vitamin E has a wide range of uses when applied to the skin. It helps to reduce the look of age spots, dull skin, and discoloration. It’s also been widely incorporated into skincare for lightening the look of acne scars, making your skin appear brighter.

The 24K Vitamin C Booster Serum

Our 24K Vitamin C Booster Serum is a great formula to help you reduce the look of dark spots.

This opulent solution is enriched with two forms of Vitamin C; Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate and Ascorbyl Palmitate, as well as Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A), and Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E).

These ingredients work wonderfully to smooth the look of wrinkles and fine lines while also evening out the appearance of your skin tone. This serum is great for making your skin appear bright and radiant!

The 24K Cryogenic Diamond Gommage

OROGOLD Diamond Gommage

But if you want all of these sensational vitamins in your chemical exfoliant and more, we’ve got the perfect product for you! Our 24K Cryogenic Diamond Gommage is a sensational formula that can help you get rid of tired-looking skin.

The breakthrough leave-on solution incorporates vitamins A, C, E, and pro-vitamin B5 to help even out the look of your skin tone with gentle exfoliation. The formula also includes sensational botanical extracts, including sea buckthorn, cucumber, chamomile, and green tea, to give your skin a truly royal treatment. This exquisite gommage will remove excess oils and debris, leaving your skin looking renewed and refreshed!

Use Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is a common plant that’s famed for changing the skincare game! Among its many skin-lovin’ properties, it works great to fade the look of dark posts. The plant contains a compound known as aloesin that can help in inhibiting the visible effects of hyperpigmentation. Research has shown that aloesin can help diminish the look of dark spots caused by UV-B rays.

Here’s how you can incorporate aloe vera into your nighttime skincare routine:

  • Extract aloe vera gel from the plant and apply it to dark spots on your face. Leave it on overnight.
  • Rinse in the morning with lukewarm water.
  • Repeat these steps daily until you see visible improvement in the look of your dark patches.

Alternatively, give one of OROGOLD’s aloe-infused products a try! The 24K Purifying Toner feels particularly hydrating and refreshing.

Never Skimp on Sunscreen!

Using sunblock is a skincare must that you can’t go a single day without.

Sun spots are caused as a protective response from the body against UV rays. The increased pigmentation is a precautionary action to prevent burnt skin. So, while you might think that you’re getting a cool tan, it’s just your skin trying to stay shielded. The damage later surfaces in the form of dark spots on your face. But you can stop the cycle from happening by incorporating SPF 30+ in your routine.

OROGOLD has just the skincare product you need to help against pigmented skin. Our 24K Skin Tone SPF 30 is a sensational broad-spectrum sunscreen that neutralizes UV rays while keeping your skin feeling smooth and fresh.

What Causes Dark Spots on the Face in the First Place?

Before you can get to the point of managing your dark spots, it’s important to know what the root cause is. Typically, dark spots are a given with aging as your skin’s pigment cells become overactive due to prolonged UV exposure.

Your face, arms, feet, and hands are typically the most exposed to sun rays. That’s why you’ll often find dark spots in these areas of the body. The UV rays speed up your body’s production of melanin, causing parts of your skin to appear darker. Therefore, most people refer to dark spots as aging spots, liver spots, or sun spots.

Although this is the most common cause, there could be other reasons you’re experiencing dark spots on your skin:

  • Acne and Wounds: Even if you don’t pop them, pimples can leave dark spots on your face. As pimples heal, your skin sometimes produces excess melanin to make up for the damage. But these spots fade away much faster compared to those left by popped pimples. So, you better keep those hands away! In a similar manner, your skin develops dark spots after an insect bite or a cut as it heals. These tend to fade away as time passes.
  • Tanning Beds: Some people believe it’s possible to outwit the tanning process with artificial equipment. But these are even more harmful to your skin. Not only do tanning beds lead to dark spots, but they also elevate your chances of developing melanoma (skin cancer).
  • Other Skin Conditions: Inflammation is another culprit when it comes to dark spots on the skin. The phenomenon is known as PIH (Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation) and it typically occurs as a result of skin conditions like eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis.
  • Hormonal Imbalance: Dark spots that occur from hormonal changes are referred to as Melasma. This skin condition causes small-scale patches of discolored skin. It’s more common among women, especially when undergoing pregnancy.

Why is Gold Used in Cosmetics?

Woman using gold eye mask

It’s undeniable that when it comes to metals, gold is the epitome of luxury. We wear it on our ears and neck. Heck, it’s even a symbol of undying love on our ring finger when we get married. You’ll also find gold leaf on the most expensive dessert on the menu of a high-end hotel café or Michelin star resto.

When you think gold, you think opulence and decadence — everyone does. But it’s not limited to just jewelry and exotic, ultra-expensive delicacies. For centuries, gold has also been used in beauty and skincare.

So, it comes as no surprise that gold cosmetics has been a growing trend in the past decade. You’ll find this precious metal infused in serums, cleansers, and even exquisite creams. But are these gold-riddled premium skincare worth the splurge?

Read on to see what makes gold cosmetics so unique, as well as the different uses for gold in skincare. Plus, check out the bestselling OROGOLD products we highly recommend if you want to add a golden touch (literally!) to your beauty regimen.

Gold is Becoming Pretty Popular in the World of Skincare

Gold face mask

Throughout the years, gold has been used in many different ways. Centuries ago, it was a form of currency that only the rich and powerful had. Today, it’s used to make Olympic medals and Oscar awards. Whichever way you look at it, gold was, is, and always will be the ultimate symbol of wealth and prosperity.

But today, it’s more than just a status symbol. This antioxidant has permeated mainstream beauty and skincare. You’ll see extravagant serums with gold flecks in them, or gilded peeling masks that make it look like you’re painting molten gold onto your skin.

Yes, it’s an ingredient that makes any boring old skincare product look ten times more Instagram-worthy. This might cause you to think that all it does is “prettify” skincare products without any real benefit. But while some might think it’s a gimmicky ingredient to put in products, it’s actually quite useful on a functional level.

Gold cosmetics don’t have raw, melted gold in them. Instead, they’re infused with gold nanoparticles or “colloidal gold.” This skin-friendly derivative of gold has many benefits for every skin type. It can help improve the look of your skin and make it appear smoother and glowier, but allow us to elaborate later.

These gold particles are extremely small but stable. This means they’re easily absorbed by the skin. Thus, they have the potential to make the rest of the ingredients in your products even more effective.

But don’t get ahead of yourself. Sadly, gold isn’t for everyone. About one in every ten people is allergic to gold. That means it’s important to patch test if you’re using gold cosmetics for the first time.

At OROGOLD, We Proudly Call Gold Our Signature Ingredient

Gold cosmetics from OROGOLD

OROGOLD’s lush and decadent signature ingredient has been widely popular in beauty not just in recent years, but for centuries.

Gold has been used since ancient times for medical and beautification reasons. It’s been said that even Cleopatra herself slathered her face in gold each night to keep it looking youthful. Empresses of the olden Chinese dynasties and the beauties of Rome also used it to make their skin look more flawless.

Gold is believed to have lots of benefits for the skin. And although gold seems like it’s only available to the rich and famous today, it’s OROGOLD’s mission to make it accessible to everyone with a penchant for luxury — well, at least on a skincare level.

We believe in the power of gold not just to make your skin look better, but to make your skincare experience more enjoyable and opulent. After all, isn’t that the way you deserve to be pampered since your daily skin regimen is an act of self-love?

At OROGOLD, we combine colloidal gold with tons of other skin-loving ingredients for an even more powerful effect on your skin. We put it together with cult-fave ingredients like hyaluronic acid, coconut oil, vitamin A, and tons more.

So why try out skincare products with gold in them? Allow us to name you three reasons we love gold cosmetics, and why we think they can help you out too:

1. It Minimizes the Appearance of Wrinkles and Fine Lines

No matter how blemish-free or soft your skin is, age will still catch up with you in one deadly word: wrinkles. The older you get, the saggier and drier your skin feels. This leads to the appearance of fine lines around your mouth, eyes, and even your forehead.

Gold cosmetics can help out with this tremendously. Gold is known to reduce the appearance of stubborn lines, crow’s feet, and wrinkles on the skin, making your complexion look firmer and younger.

So, if you’re concerned about how taut and smooth your skin looks as you get closer to your golden years, don’t fret. Gold cosmetics can help iron out the appearance of those wrinkles. It’ll also make your skin look more toned. No one will even realize how old you are if they just look at your flawless complexion.

Make Your Skin Look Plumper and Smoother with Gold-Infused Creams

24K Multi Vitamin Night Nourishment

Aside from environmental aggressors like the sun and external factors like stress and smoking, one of the most common reasons for the development of wrinkles as you age is dehydrated skin.

The older you get, the less active your sebaceous glands will be. The result? Skin that is less moisturized and is more frequently parched and begging for moisture. And when the skin is dry, it loosens a lot more, creating those deep lines and folds that feel as though they are impossible to hide.

Since older skin is prone to being dehydrated, it’s important to pamper your skin with deeply moisturizing products. This will help give your skin back that glow while replenishing it with the moisture it has been deprived of now that you’re producing less sebum.

For that, it’s best to use thick and rich creams. One that we love recommending is the OROGOLD 24k Multi Vitamin Night Nourishment + Retinol.

This night cream combines vitamins A and E — two of the most popular vitamins for mature skin. It also has green tea extracts and gold. These can help make the skin appear more youthful. Together, all these powerhouse ingredients minimize the visibility of wrinkles on your skin, making it look and feel firm and taut.

It also contains other deeply moisturizing ingredients, such as sweet almond oil, shea butter, safflower seed oil, aloe vera leaf juice, jojoba oil, and plenty more. This adds extra plumpness and bounciness to the look of your complexion for a sprightlier appearance.

Once a week, treat your skin to something a little richer and more intensive, like the OROGOLD 24k Nano Hydra Silk Mask. This weekly mask glides onto the skin easily, thanks to rich and velvety ingredients like sodium hyaluronate, acai fruit extracts, goji fruit extracts, and vitamin E.

2. Gold Cosmetics Can Soothe the Feeling of Irritation and Inflammation

We’ve already talked about how, in the past, gold was used to make the skin look softer and glowier. What we haven’t yet covered is how in the olden days, ancient Egyptians also believed that gold had medicinal properties to heal skin diseases.

This is because gold is believed to have antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that keep the skin feeling calm and looking healthy. When the skin felt itchy, painful, or off somehow, gold would be slathered all over it in the hopes of soothing that sensation.

And if it worked for our ancestors centuries back, why shouldn’t it work for us today?

Help Your Skin Feel Calmer and More Relaxed with Gold-Infused Toners and Serums

24K toner is a great way to treat yourself

Toners and serums sometimes feel like unnecessary parts of skincare. Technically, your skin can survive on just cleansing and moisturizing alone. But if you have particularly sensitive skin that is prone to redness and flare-ups due to sensitive skin conditions, you know how helpful toners and serums are.

These lightweight skincare steps aren’t just packed with hydrating ingredients to boost radiance in your complexion. They also feel super cool and refreshing. This helps soothe the feel of the skin, alleviating the sensation of any irritation and itchiness that you feel.

The OROGOLD 24k Purifying Toner is gentle but packed with hydrating botanicals that quench your skin’s thirst. It makes you feel like you’ve just drunk a whole glass of cold water. If your skin is feeling a bit irritated, dousing your face in this toner might feel like the most satisfying thing ever.

It’s formulated with organic ingredients like aloe vera leaf juice, cucumber extracts, and chamomile extracts. It also has allantoin, which is known to help soothe the feel of the skin.

After using the toner, follow up with the OROGOLD 24k Nano Night Recovery. This is our favorite weekly serum for nighttime. This silky solution helps soothe and add even more moisture to your skin, thanks to extracts from green tea, matricaria, aloe calendula, and more.

Make sure to lock in all the hydration from this serum with your favorite night cream.

3. It Helps Brighten the Tone of Your Appearance, Making You Look More Radiant

One of the most frustrating skin concerns one can deal with in life has got to be acne scars and discoloration. As you age, you might even experience some dullness in your skin tone. But of course, gold cosmetics has a solution even for that.

It is said that before Queen Cleopatra went to bed each night, she would put on a gold mask on her face. This would brighten her complexion. It would make her appear radiant, bouncy, and healthy-looking when she woke.

This is because gold can help brighten the look of your skin. If you’ve been having issues with stubborn discolored spots that won’t seem to go away no matter what you do, you might want to give gold cosmetics a shot.

It’s a chance to make your skin look luminous, just like the precious metal itself. It’ll also be free of the appearance of scars and blemishes that make your face look dull and spotty.

Incorporate Gold-Infused Vitamin C Products and SPF to Maintain Glow

Vitamin C serum

After you see the visible brightening effect of gold cosmetics on your skin, it’s important to maintain that radiance. OROGOLD has a Vitamin C Collection that aims to keep the skin looking glowy and even in tone. And of course, even our vitamin C products are infused with gold.

One of our most prized products in the vitamin C collection is the OROGOLD 24k Vitamin C Booster Facial Serum.

This serum is infused with vitamin A and multiple forms of vitamin C. These vitamins are known to help improve the appearance of dark spots and acne scars on the skin, leaving it looking brighter and more even.

Another skincare product you can use to keep your skin looking bright and radiant is SPF. This protects your skin from sun damage, which can wreak havoc on the skin and leave your dark spots even darker.

For that, we recommend the OROGOLD 24k Skin Tone SPF 30. This cream is lightweight and absorbs into the skin quickly. You don’t have to worry about it feeling greasy or filmy.

It doubles as a moisturizer and sunscreen, since it has active ingredients like octinoxate, oxybenzone, and octisalate. These protect you from the sun’s harsh UV rays.

Conclusion

Trends in skincare and beauty come and go. One day, people are going ga-ga over coconut oil. The next, it’s vitamin C. But if there’s one skincare ingredient that never stopped being trendy and aspirational across the centuries, it’s gold.

Gold cosmetics have plenty of benefits for the skin. They help minimize the appearance of harsh wrinkles on aging skin. They also soothe the feeling of irritation on the skin. Plus, they brighten the complexion to make it look radiant and iridescent. No wonder queens and empresses used them religiously back in the day!

The good news is that, with OROGOLD, you can too. Don’t forget to check out the products above or shop our collections if you want to try out the benefits of gold cosmetics for yourself.

Would Your Skin Benefit from a Deep Peeling Product?

24K Deep Peeling

When you were in your teens, you were probably taught that the secret to smooth, blemish-free skin was to never forget to wash your face at night. It gets rid of all the grime and sweat lying on the surface of your complexion. By washing those away, you can get rid of the appearance of pimples and a rough skin feel once and for all.

But while cleansing your skin is very important for anyone at any age, it’s not the only thing that can detoxify the feel of your skin. Sometimes, using a cleanser is not enough. Once in a while, you need something to give you a deeper, more thorough cleanse to get rid of stubborn buildup on your skin — like dead skin.

This is where your exfoliating products come in. You might be familiar with popular scrubs, which are super helpful for smoothening the feel of the skin. But a deep peeling treatment should also be a regular in your routine. It’s a gentle yet powerful and hardworking way to get dull, tired skin to glow again.

You might be asking, how do you even know if a deep peeling treatment will be beneficial for you? In this article, OROGOLD will be breaking down which skin types and skin concerns will get the most out of a deep peeling product. Stay tuned!

The Importance of Exfoliating Peels in Your Skincare Routine

24K Deep Peeling

Your skin is made of a ton of epidermal cells. Every 40-56 days, these skin cells “die” and come up to the surface to be washed away, revealing younger-looking cells waiting underneath.

But sometimes, those dead skin cells are a pain to wash off. Factors like cold weather and exposure to the sun can slow down the process of shedding dead skin. And when the dead cells build up on your skin, it makes your complexion look dull and feel rough to the touch.

Exfoliating with a deep peeling product helps hasten the process of shedding dead skin. It sloughs off the dead cells that are too stubborn to be washed away by your cleanser, leaving your skin looking and feeling fresh.

Proper exfoliation also allows your skincare products to work better on your skin, since you’ll be eliminating the dead skin that blocks them from being absorbed. That means that using a deep peeling treatment isn’t good for just cleansing, but helps you maximize your creams and serums as well.

The Difference Between Scrubs and Deep Peeling Treatments

Gold scrub

But what is the difference between a deep peeling product and the salt and sugar scrubs you usually see on the market? The answer lies in what type of exfoliant a product uses — physical or chemical.

Physical and chemical exfoliators do essentially the same thing, but are different in the how.

Physical exfoliators use some type of grains or texture (like say, the bristles of a body brush) to manually buff away the dead cells on your skin. Scrubs are great for removing visible flakes on the surface of your skin. But they can get pretty abrasive on the skin too.

See, physical scrubs can be very rough on your skin, especially if they’re not formulated with sensitive skin in mind. It’s even worse if you scrub them into your skin with a heavy hand. This can cause micro-tears, aka little wounds in your skin that destroy your skin barrier.

Believe it or not, chemical exfoliants and deep peeling treatments are gentler on the skin. The acids in them break down the stubborn “glue” that makes your dead skin stick together. This makes exfoliating way easier and safer, since it doesn’t involve vigorous scrubbing.

One of the most popular forms of deep peeling acids is alpha hydroxy acids, which are awesome for sloughing off even the most stubborn dead skin cells. This makes your skin look and feel more renewed.

Meet Your New Favorite Deep Peeling Exfoliator

24 Deep Peeling

Peels are awesome for the skin when your complexion is feeling extra congested and needs a little pick-me-up. But what’s the best peeling treatment when there are so many on the market?

If we’re talking about deep peeling products, we know which one our favorite is. It’s the OROGOLD 24k Multi-Vitamin Deep Peeling + Mandelic Acid. What makes it a deep peeling treatment? It has both physical and chemical exfoliators.

There’s bamboo stem powder and finely ground walnut shells to buff away dead skin. But it also has mandelic acid, a popular AHA that unsticks dead skin from the surface of your complexion. Mandelic acid is also terrific for making your skin appear more radiant and even-looking in tone (but more on that later!).

The exfoliator also has lots of OROGOLD’s favorite skin-loving ingredients. Infusions of coconut oil, vitamins A, C, and E, jojoba esters, and green tea make the skin feel smoother and look glowy. It even has gold for an extra touch of luxury.

Simply apply this treatment directly to freshly cleansed skin. Massage it into your face, rubbing in gentle circles. Then, rinse off with lukewarm or cool water. Use this deep peeling product once a week. Any more than that can cause symptoms of over-exfoliation, which can manifest as redness and irritation.

Not sure if your skin even needs a deep peeling treatment? Here are four signs that your skin is actually craving it!

1. You Have Dry, Flaky Skin Because of Seasonal Changes

During the colder months of winter, your skin is more susceptible to dehydration. The winds are harsh and chilly, and there’s little to no humidity in the air. That means dry flakes on the surface of your skin.

It also means the dead skin on your face might be more stubborn to wash away. Your skin might even feel rough and look dull even as winter turns to spring. They’ll be more difficult to unstick and shed, so you’ll likely need the extra help from a deep peeling exfoliator.

Exfoliating will get rid of those flakes and dead skin that keep your face from looking healthy and radiant. And since the OROGOLD deep peeling treatment is filled to the brim with hydrating ingredients, it can also help alleviate dryness.

Although the deep peeling treatment has ingredients to smoothen the feel of your skin, it’s still important to follow up with a moisturizer, especially if you have naturally dry skin. For that, you can use the OROGOLD 24k Deep Moisturizer.

This rich cream is made with luxuriously smooth ingredients, like shea butter and vitamin E. It helps make your skin glow while adding a velvety soft feel to it. However, it’s still lightweight and non-greasy, so it feels very comfy on the skin.

2. Your Skin Feels Congested Thanks to Sweat, Makeup, and Pollution

After a long day of taking the subway, working, and hitting the gym, your skin can feel a bit icky and gross. Your pores might feel congested with sweat, makeup, and dirt from pollution.

And when your pores are congested, it can often lead to breakouts. So, it’s of the utmost importance to wash your skin thoroughly and deeply.

Start off with a high-quality facial cleanser. We recommend the OROGOLD 24k Mousse Cleanser. This water-based cleanser is an excellent first step to your night routine. It creates a rich, creamy lather for a satisfying cleanse that washes away the makeup and grease from your day.

Since the cleanser is infused with ingredients like chamomile, argan oil, and moringa seed oil, it doesn’t strip your skin of moisture. Instead, it leaves the complexion looking fresh and glowy.

Then, follow with the OROGOLD deep peeling treatment. This is going to be a huge help for anyone who feels like their skin can’t breathe after a long, sweaty day outside. The deep cleansing will make your skin feel fresh and renewed.

Plus, mandelic acid is known to minimize the visibility of large pores. So if you’re constantly conscious about your pores, this OROGOLD deep peeling treatment will be your best friend.

Think of this deep peeling treatment as a way of pampering yourself at the end of a long week, when you want to literally wash away all of the stress you’ve had to go through. It’s a small but impactful act of self-love, as all skincare is supposed to be.

3. You Want to Reduce the Appearance of Dark Spots for a Brighter-Looking Complexion

If you suffer from post-acne hyperpigmentation, you know how horrible it is. After weeks of battling an active pimple, you’ll be rewarded not with clear skin, but with a dark spot that lasts even longer. Sometimes, getting rid of that dark spot can take months.

The sun is a huge culprit in why dark spots take forever to disappear. The sun’s UV rays trigger melanin production, encouraging discoloration to look even more obvious. Because of that, acne scars tend to stick around longer.

But a deep peeling treatment can improve the appearance of these blemishes and spots. AHAs like mandelic acid are effective in reducing the look of acne scars and dark spots. So, by using the OROGOLD deep peel, your skin can look brighter and more even in tone.

To prevent the appearance of stubborn dark spots moving forward, make sure you always use SPF. The OROGOLD 24K Skin Tone SPF 30 is a fabulous option for everyday sun protection.

It’s a sheer, lightweight, comfortable cream that protects your skin. That way, you can have fun in the sun without worrying about worsening the visibility of your pigmentation.

4. You’re Getting Frustrated With the Number of Lines and Wrinkles in Your Skin

One day, you have plump and youthful-looking skin. And then the next thing you know, you have silver strands in your hair and one too many wrinkles visible on your face.

Deep lines are a part of getting older, but it doesn’t mean you need to tolerate them. Exfoliating with a deep peeling treatment can do wonders to help with that.

AHAs are known for improving the appearance of maturing skin by reducing the look of wrinkles and fine lines. Mandelic acid, one of the star ingredients of the OROGOLD deep peeling treatment, is an AHA. So, it can lend a hand in minimizing the visibility of the signs of skin aging.

If you need extra help making your skin look younger and feel firm and smooth, a deep peeling treatment is exactly what you need.

Feel Like Your Skin Might Want a Gentler Product Instead?

Still intimidated by chemical acids in deep peeling products? Maybe you’ll be more comfortable using a gentler exfoliator. The OROGOLD 24k Cryogenic Diamond Gommage might be perfect for you.

This exfoliator is so gentle that you don’t need to wash it off. Just massage this gel into your skin, and it will work to exfoliate the dead skin that makes your complexion look dull.

Aside from making your skin look brighter and more renewed after exfoliating, it also smoothens the feel of the skin’s texture. This is thanks to ingredients like coconut extracts, vitamin E, centella asiatica, chamomile, green tea, and cucumber extracts.

Conclusion

If you’re used to washing your face only with a cleanser and a handy scrub in your medicine cabinet that you bring out once every few months, you might think that a deep peeling treatment is unnecessary. But exfoliating with acids is a huge part of maintaining a smooth complexion, and you shouldn’t go without it.

Deep peeling products have tremendous skin benefits. They smoothen the feel of the skin’s texture, zap away the look of dark spots, and brighten the tone of your complexion. They also give your face a more youthful appearance by minimizing the visibility of wrinkles and lines.

Is your skin in dire need of any of the above improvements to look radiant and healthy again? Now’s your chance to add a deep peeling treatment to your usual beauty routine.

Why Should You Exfoliate?

Woman using exfoliators

To exfoliate or not to exfoliate — that is the question.

There is an ongoing debate in the beauty community about whether exfoliators are a necessary addition to your skincare routine.

So, let’s settle it once and for all; yes, exfoliating your skin is great to help give it a renewed and refreshed look.

Even though your skin habitually gets rid of dead cells roughly every 28 days, there’s a chance some of them might get left behind. These cells tend to stay there for a while and, as a result of UV rays, germs, environmental aggressors, and other skin rivals, they start to appear very rough with a darker hue.

Exfoliating would help rid these residual dead cells from the surface of your skin and bring the new cells up to reignite the glow. Some exfoliators are also particularly formulated to penetrate your pores and unclog them from the inside. 

That said, it’s also important to bear in mind that excess of anything is bad — too much exfoliation can actually do your skin more harm than good. But we’ll delve into the dos and don’ts of exfoliating later on in this article.

Benefits of Exfoliation

So, what does exfoliation do for your skin? Its possible benefits include:

  • Making your skin appear brighter
  • Enhancing the absorption of topical skincare products and thus, their efficacy
  • Unclogging pores and decreasing the occurrence of breakouts
  • Making your skin appear tighter,
  • Rebalancing how dry or oily the skin feels
  • Softening the look of your skin’s texture
  • Reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation

If we don’t exfoliate our skin, it’s easy for dead skin cells to get trapped on the outer layer of the skin and start accumulating. This can lead to a host of skin problems, including dryness, dark spots, dullness, clogged pores, rough texture, and obvious wrinkles.

How Do Exfoliators Work?

Face exfoliators

Exfoliation involves two techniques: physical and chemical. How do they work differently?

As the name sounds, physical exfoliators are textured bits and grainy particles — such as crystals, micro-fine granules, and natural beads — that work by manually removing dead, dull cells and debris from the top layer of your skin by scrubbing or sloughing. They work solely on the surface level.

Meanwhile, chemical exfoliators work by loosening the intercellular glue holding the dead skin cells intact by the use of enzymes or acids. They penetrate deeper into the skin compared to physical exfoliators, and thus, are more effective.

Even though the term “chemical” might put off people with dry, sensitive skin, it’s just indicative of how the ingredients work. In fact, mild chemical exfoliants like mandelic acid serve as a much better option if you have sensitive skin that can’t tolerate physical scrubbing or pore congestion that runs deep.

The Best Way to Exfoliate Your Skin

There is a proper way to exfoliate your skin so you can reap the most benefits from the process. For both physical and chemical exfoliation, you should start with your usual beauty routine — properly cleansing your skin to remove any makeup, dirt, or other impurities, and patting it dry. We would recommend our 24K Mousse Cleanser for this.

Then, follow up by toning your skin to leave it feeling balanced. The 24K Purifying Toner will get the job done perfectly!

24K toner is a great way to treat yourself

Using Chemical Exfoliators

Apply a thin layer of the chemical exfoliant after toning your skin. If the exfoliant is in liquid form, use a cotton pad to gently apply it across your skin. If it’s a lotion or a gel-based formula, just use your fingers to apply.

Now, wait a few minutes before moving on to the next step of your routine to let the exfoliant work its magic completely. Don’t rinse unless the instructions say so.

Some chemical exfoliators come as peeling solutions. These work excellently to tackle the appearance of aging skin, acne scars, and melasma. These are to be rinsed off a few minutes after application.

So, make sure you familiarize yourself with the product instructions before trying it out on your skin.

Next, just follow with a moisturizer or a serum as you would normally do after toning in your daily skincare routine.

Using Physical Exfoliators

Just take a dime-sized amount of the exfoliant and apply it onto damp skin, massaging in circular motions. It’s important to keep your skin moist for physical exfoliation as that makes it soft and much easier to rub off the dead cells.

Don’t apply a lot of pressure and stick to gentle motions. According to the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, being too harsh with your physical exfoliant can worsen cases of hyperpigmentation.

After you’re done, rinse off properly and treat your face with a skin-soothing serum or moisturizer, like OROGOLD’s 24K Deep Moisturizer. Its luxurious, light-textured formula is enriched with Vitamin E and Shea Butter to pamper your skin and provide ample hydration. You’re bound to end up with plump-looking skin that feels velvety-smooth to the touch!

For taking care of your body after exfoliation, we recommend using our 24K Classic Body Butter. This exotic formula features a creamy blend of rich ingredients, including Shea Butter, Organic Chamomile Extract, and Sunflower Seed Oil. Its powerful hydrating ingredients will leave your skin looking fresh and feeling as smooth as ever!

The Best Exfoliators According to Your Skin Type

Exfoliant ingredients tend to vary significantly from one skin type to another. If you have sensitive skin, your exfoliant would be on the milder side with gentle acids like mandelic, as mentioned above, or lactic. So, let’s delve deeper into the recommended ingredients and suitable OROGOLD exfoliators for different skin types.

For Oily and Acne-Prone Skin

If you have oily, acne-prone skin, you can benefit from both chemical and physical exfoliation.

For the latter, it’s highly recommended to choose a non-abrasive scrub to avoid any microtears or adverse effects on your skin. Since people tend to get overzealous while they’re physically exfoliating their skin, it’s better to stay on the safe side with a non-abrasive scrub.

Go for ones that contain very light granules, like jojoba beads and bamboo powder, to prevent causing any damage to your skin.

If breakouts are common for your skin, you would benefit more from chemical exfoliation. This will work effectively to unclog your pores and fight excessive oil production from deep within instead of just on the surface level.

AHAs and BHAs like mandelic and salicylic acids work great to improve oily, congested skin by enhancing texture and clearing acne. These acids won’t just fight sebum production but also slough off dead cells that clog out your pores.

You can try out OROGOLD’s 24K Cryogenic Diamond Gommage infused with rich ingredients like Sea Buckthorn Fruit Extract and Retinyl Palmitate that work excellently to soothe the look of inflamed skin. The formula also includes diamond dust. This is highly effective in relaxing the feel of the pores and removing any residual dirt particles from them. Our breakthrough leave-on solution will gently exfoliate your skin while removing excess oils and debris. So, you can welcome newer-looking skin!

OROGOLD Diamond Gommage

For Dry and Sensitive Skin

If you have dry, sensitive skin, physical exfoliation is generally not recommended. But if you were to opt for it, choose a scrub that effectively, but gently, removes dead cells while also delivering sufficient hydration to your skin. Scrubs that are honey-based, that come in a creamy, lotion texture with super-fine grains, or ones with rich moisturizing oils would be the perfect options to exfoliate and hydrate your skin at the same time.

Luckily, our 24K Classic Body Scrub is just what dry body skin needs. This velvety-soft formula works to gently exfoliate the skin while keeping it feeling hydrated. Enjoy skin that appears smooth and radiant with this classic scrub!

If you choose chemical exfoliation, lactic, mandelic, and glycolic acids are top-tier ingredients that can do wonders for your dry skin. These are very mild yet effective when it comes to removing dead skin cells. They help maintain hydration in the skin, making it appear fresh and soft after exfoliation.

OROGOLD’S 24K Multi-Vitamin Deep-Peeling + Mandelic Acid is just what your sensitive skin needs! This superior gel exfoliant is infused with rich skincare ingredients that work together to deliver exceptional results — Bamboo Stem Powder, Vitamin C, and Mandelic Acid. Get rid of dead skin cells and make your skin appear much more radiant with our luxury exfoliating formula.

OROGOLD Deep Peeling + Mandelic Acid

For Combination Skin

There are two types of combination skin: (1) more on the normal-to-dry side and (2) more on the normal-to-oily side. If your skin is the first type, it’s advisable to opt for chemical exfoliants with mild ingredients such as the ones mentioned above. For the second type, you can either stick with physical exfoliators containing non-abrasive grains or try chemical ones with salicylic acid that offer gentle exfoliation and prevent pore-clogging.

You can check out OROGOLD’s 24K Multi-Vitamin Deep-Peeling exfoliating gel that packs Vitamin C and Bamboo Stem Powder to gently remove dead skin cells without being harsh against your skin. This luxury exfoliating solution will leave your skin appearing luminous and more refreshed than before.

The Dos and Don’ts of Exfoliating

Exfoliating is a slippery slope if you don’t fully know what you’re doing. Here are some dos and don’ts to bear in mind:

Don’t: Over-Exfoliate

Exfoliating should not be considered a part of your daily skincare routine. If you have very dry skin, exfoliating once a week is more than enough. For oily, acne-prone skin, twice a week is recommended.

Do: Be Gentle with Your Skin

Always bear in mind the golden rule of physical exfoliation: less is more. So, be gentle with your skin and use a washcloth or a gentle loofah. Facial exfoliation requires even more care as the skin is very delicate compared to that of the rest of your body.

Don’t: Exfoliate After a Treatment

If you’ve recently undergone a facial treatment, chemical peel, or waxing, wait a week or so before exfoliating. Doing so, you’ll avoid any adverse effects that could ruin your skin, possibly causing permanent damage.

Do: Exfoliate at Night

Exfoliating makes your skin feel vulnerable as you’re revealing a new, fresh layer with heightened sensitivity. If you exfoliate during the day, you can risk damaging it when you go outside in the sun. Make it a habit to exfoliate before going to bed so your skin has time to heal and bounce back in the morning!

OROGOLD Solutions to Enhance Your Skincare Game

Your exfoliating routine relies heavily on your skin type. It’s important not to consider it synonymous with cleansing and toning, which should be done daily. Just keep it moderate but consistent.

With OROGOLD’s meticulously-formulated solutions to help rejuvenate and refresh your skin’s appearance, you can exfoliate your skin the proper way! Our skincare line infuses pure, 24K refined gold into ultra-luxurious formulas for everyone to enjoy!

Do You Really Need to Use an Eye Serum?

Eye serum

Among the first things people notice when they look at you are your eyes. Whatever you might be feeling deep inside appears in your eyes. So, how can you make sure to keep your eye area looking radiant and glowing? Are general facial products enough?

The truth is, your eye area has unique needs that can only be addressed by targeted eye serums and creams. Because of its delicate nature, it requires specific care so that it doesn’t start to develop the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Need help with that?

We might have just the right products for you! OROGOLD is a high-end beauty brand that carries a wide range of luxury skincare products designed to make you look your absolute best. This includes our 24K Exclusive Eye Collection to pamper your eyes with powerful vitamin and extract-rich formulas.

What is an Eye Serum?

Woman applying eye serum

Before delving into the discussion of whether you really need to use an eye serum, it’s important to address what eye serums are.

An eye serum is a targeted eyecare product that’s designed to improve the appearance of aging, flaky, and puffy skin around the eyes. How is it different from an eye cream?

In comparison to eye serums, eye creams are heavier and contain more oil. The dense formula packs a much lower concentration of active ingredients, including niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, and retinol.

On the other hand, eye serums are lighter and more targeted formulas to combat the appearance of aging skin around your eyes. They contain less oil and more water-based ingredients, making the formula less viscous and easily absorbable into the skin. An eye serum penetrates deep into the skin but eye creams work more on the surface.

So, the answer is yes; you should use an eye serum daily to tackle the appearance of crow’s feet, dark circles, and puffiness. In fact, it’s best to use eye creams in conjunction with eye serums to get the best results.

Remember the important rule of skincare application: the heaviest products go last. So, use your eye serum before your eye cream. You can also incorporate eyecare tools that utilize the latest technology — sonic pulsations or LED light therapy — to enhance the working of your eye serum.

A revolutionary tool is OROGOLD’s Jelessi Photonix-2 Jade Eye Wand, which incorporates infrared technology to give you the ultimate light-therapy experience right at your home. It uses heat technology to help smooth away the appearance of fine lines and unwanted puffiness.

How is the Skin Around Your Eyes Different From Your Face?

Woman with good skin

Here are a few factors that make the skin around your eyes much more vulnerable to the wear and tear that comes with natural aging:

It’s Much Thinner

You might be surprised to know the skin on your eyelids and under-eye is only 0.5 mm thick. That’s 10 times thinner than the rest of the skin on your face. Thinner skin means more vulnerability to signs of aging; creasing, fine lines, and cellular damage caused by environmental aggressors like UV rays and pollution.

It also means more visible fluid retention, leading to under-eye puffiness. Luckily, OROGOLD’s 24K DMAE Wrinkle Tightening Solution has just the answer for that. The formula is enriched with pure gold, Sodium Hyaluronate, DMAE, and Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 to help diminish the look of under-eye bags. 

It Lacks Natural Moisture

Your entire skin, aside from your palms and soles, contains sebaceous glands that work as your body’s natural moisturizers. They produce and secrete sebum — a group of complex oils — that helps keep your skin moist and protects it against friction. Unfortunately, the eye area doesn’t have enough of these glands to keep it as moisturized as the rest of your skin. 

OROGOLD’s Eye Series contains several products that can help ramp up the feeling of moisture around your eyes. These formulas incorporate cutting-edge ingredients to relieve dry skin and diminish the appearance of under-eye puffiness.

Eye mask

It’s Constantly Under Stress

Facial expressions exert stress on the skin around your eyes. People on average blink 15 to 20 times in a minute, making it roughly 12,000 to 20,000 times per day depending on how many hours of sleep you get. If we add this activity to squinting, crying, frowning, or showing expressions of happiness, it’s easy to understand why this area is among the first to show signs of aging.

Also, think about how many times you rub your eyes, put on contact lenses, apply makeup. All of these movements, paired with the natural delicate nature of the skin around your eyes, can lead to wrinkling and fine lines.

It’s Prone to Milia

Have you ever noticed small white bumps on your face, typically located under your eyes? These are called milia or milk spots that contain hardened keratin. The root cause of these is unknown but they appear more visible under your eyes than the rest of your face due to very thin skin.

When Should You Start Using an Eye Serum?

So, what is the perfect age to start incorporating an eye serum into your skincare routine?

It’s best to start using it in your 20s before you start to notice the first visible signs of aging. This is because some of the best results come from preventative measures.

The Best Way to Use an Eye Serum

Woman applying eye serum

With eye serums, it’s best to get a pump or two of the formula and split it evenly between both eyes.

Use your ring finger to gently dab under your eyes since it has the lightest touch naturally. You want to avoid applying pressure to this area as it is highly delicate and you could end up damaging it if you’re not extremely gentle.

Apply the product in a semi-circle under your eyes, finishing up on the side where crow’s feet tend to appear.

Don’t apply the product on your eyelids as it could sink into your eyes and cause irritation. Moreover, make sure you keep a half-inch distance from your eyes while applying the serum as natural oils in that area tend to pull the product closer, stinging your eyes.

If you want to cover more area, you can use an eye serum above and between your eyebrows where your frown lines appear. 

OROGOLD Eye Serums to Enhance Your Eyes

It’s in the name — at OROGOLD, we put 24K gold at the heart of our revolutionary skincare formulas to revitalize the look of your skin. Every single one of our products is proven to contain pure 24K gold from the depths of Italy. We also infuse our luxury skincare products with industry-leading ingredients, including powerful vitamins (and their derivatives), herbal extracts, alpha hydroxy acids, and peptides.

Let’s talk about OROGOLD’s two most raved-about eye serums to help you delay the visibility of aging and make your eyes appear more radiant and refreshed.

24K Intensive Eye Serum

24k eye serum

OROGOLD’s 24K Intensive Eye Serum is tailor-made for sensitive skin. The formula is infused with powerful ingredients like Vitamin C and Palmitoyl Oligopeptide.

The 24K Intensive Eye Serum formula also includes natural herbal extracts like Green Tea and Aloe Vera. Green tea works exceptionally well to relieve dry skin while minimizing the appearance of red and puffy eyes. Aloe Vera helps to reduce the appearance of aging spots and improves the feel of skin texture. It keeps your skin looking refreshed and smooth.

Let’s not forget; our luxury eye serum is also enriched with pure 24K gold that has been used for centuries as skin therapy by ancient Egyptians. Gold works excellently to restore the appearance of youthful skin. It makes the skin appear smoother and more radiant. 

For the best results, we recommend using this eye serum daily in conjunction with our 24K Intensive Eye Formula Cream. It’s infused with Retinyl Palmitate and Caffeine. This combo will help minimize the look of dark circles, puffiness, and crow’s feet, making your eyes appear lively and glowing. Remember to apply the serum first and then follow it with the eye formula cream for maximum absorption of both products.

24K Anti-Aging Eye Serum

OROGOLD eye care products

Another popular OROGOLD eye serum is the 24K Anti-Aging Eye Serum from our exclusive 24K White Gold Collection that works by targeting the sensitive, dry skin around your eyes.

Much like the 24K Intensive Eye Serum, this formula is also infused with Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) and Palmitoyl Oligopeptide to deliver sensational results. Just one drop of this fast-absorbing serum is enough to firm the appearance of the skin around your eyes and diminish the look of crow’s feet.

The formula also includes Aloe Vera and Green Tea Extracts to smooth out the appearance of wrinkles and relieve dry skin. These two powerful botanical extracts also work to relieve the look of puffy eyes. As a result, they help with significantly reducing the appearance of under-eye bags.

It’s best to use this eye serum in conjunction with a rich cream, like our 24K Cryogenic Contour Eye Firming Cream, for a more youthful, radiant look. The rich formula incorporates highly beneficial eye care ingredients like Caffeine and Green Tea. Together, they help enhance the appearance of wrinkly, aging dry skin around the eyes and diminish the look of puffiness. This luxury 24K gold cream will leave your skin looking velvety smooth without feeling too greasy.

Enrich Your Eye Care Routine with OROGOLD Cosmetics

The skin around your eyes is very fragile. As a result, it’s among the first parts of your body to exhibit the visible signs of aging, like the appearance of puffiness, fine lines, dark circles, and sagging. Of course, aging can’t be stopped; it’s a natural part of life. But you can prevent it from taking over your appearance quite as much!

OROGOLD’s skincare collection includes loads of rich formulas infused with leading skincare ingredients and pure gold. We offer unparalleled luxury to achieve skin that looks younger and healthier! Our products are designed to tackle every aspect of skincare. So, don’t forget to check out the OROGOLD Cosmetics shop to meet all your skincare needs!

The Difference Between Morning and Night Skincare Routines

Woman applying face cream

Understanding the difference between morning and night skincare routines boils down to identifying the circumstances that our skin is faced with during these times. What happens to our skin when we’re awake? What are the conditions like in the daytime? And what about the evenings?

Pinpointing the answers to these questions can help us identify the difference between morning and night skincare routines, as well as the specific kinds of products each requires. In this blog post, OROGOLD unpacks just that: 

Skin in the Daytime

Woman applying face cream

Most of us apply our skincare at the same time as we brush our teeth or freshen up in the morning. During this window, we prepare our skin for the day ahead. But what exactly happens to the skin during the day?

The answer is rather alarming: throughout the day, the skin is exposed to damage. Try as we might, the external threats that pose damage to the skin are unavoidable.

Here’s how it works:

Every time you step outside, the skin is left vulnerable against the following factors:

  • Air 
  • Smoke
  • Pollution
  • UV radiation

These are all environmental factors that induce the production of free radicals in the skin. Free radicals are essentially unstable atoms that can cause long-standing harm to the skin, from blemishes to signs of aging. 

Air pollution has become especially concerning in recent years. According to the World Health Organization, 4.2 million die each year due to exposure to outdoor air pollution. Due to the fast-paced industrialization of the world, these numbers are expected to soar in the coming years.

Another factor worth paying extra attention to is UV radiation. UV exposure via the sun has been recognized as one of the biggest contributors to skin aging, causing up to 80% of the visible signs of aging. Unlike when the skin reacts to stress, a bad diet, or sensitizing products, the effects of sun damage may take years to show through. UV radiation is also one of the leading causes of skin cancer.

Environmental stressors aside, we usually stay outside for several hours at a time during the day. Some of us apply makeup over our skincare. It is important, therefore, for the skin to stay grease-free yet well-moisturized all day long. This is a big factor in the difference between morning and night skincare routines.

An OROGOLD Morning Skincare Routine

Considering the circumstances mentioned above, choosing your morning skincare is key to keeping your skin looking good and feeling good throughout the day. Here at OROGOLD, we are all about creating skincare products that can deliver on both of those conditions.

Consider these OROGOLD products for your morning beauty regimen:

The 24K Vitamin C Facial Cleanser

24K Cleanser

Start with the Orogold 24K Vitamin C Facial Cleanser. Featuring a blend of vitamin C and vitamin A, this cleanser can kick off your day on a positive note.

Unlike many cleansers today, the OROGOLD 24K Vitamin C Facial Cleanser is free of alcohol. While alcohol can reduce excess oil (which can be great for keeping the skin looking shine-free throughout the day), it can also strip the skin of its necessary moisture. This may cause problems like irritation and sensitivity. 

Instead, this cleanser has a mix of ingredients that’ll leave skin feeling soothed and calm, including:

  • Witch hazel extract
  • Calendula extract
  • Chamomile extract

The 24K Purifying Toner

24K toner is a great way to treat yourself

To finish off your morning cleanse, reach for the 24K Purifying Toner. With a light, water-like consistency, this toner serves two purposes: picking up any remaining dirt and bringing hydration back to the skin. 

Rather than the stinging, astringent toners of yore, the 24K Purifying Toner does not contain alcohol. Formulated to balance, hydrate, and smoothen the feel of the skin, it contains gentle ingredients like cucumber extract and aloe vera extract.

The 24K Purifying Toner also contains an ingredient that often flies under the radar: sodium PCA. An amino acid naturally found in the skin, sodium PCA is a humectant. This means that it has water-binding properties that leave the skin looking so much fresher and fuller.

By hydrating the skin, sodium PCA contributes to a plumper, younger-looking complexion. Not to mention, it helps the skin look good all day!

The 24K Nano Ultra Silk Serum

OROGOLD 24K Nano Ultra Silk Serum

Next up in your morning regimen: OROGOLD’s 24K Nano Ultra Silk Serum. When choosing a daytime serum, you’ll want to opt for something lightweight yet moisturizing. It has to layer well under a moisturizer, sunscreen, and makeup if you choose to wear it. The 24K Nano Ultra Silk Serum ticks all those boxes.

Behind the serum’s ultra-light texture are heavy-hitting ingredients.

One such component is tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate. Don’t let the scientific name intimidate you; this is just another form of skincare cult-favorite, vitamin C. However, there are a few key differences that set this iteration apart from pure ascorbic acid:

While vitamin C is revered for how it brightens the look of the skin, it can be difficult to formulate products with. This is because the ingredient is highly unstable. Once it is exposed to certain factors like high temperatures or sunlight, it can become less effective. This is where tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate comes in.

Unlike classic vitamin C, tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate is stable. 

The 24K Nano Ultra Silk Serum is also formulated with a cocktail of natural oils. Some of the standouts in its ingredient list are:

  • Sunflower seed oil
  • Sweet almond oil
  • Sesame seed oil

Altogether, these ingredients work to keep the skin looking radiant and smooth.

The 24K Ultra Day Moisturizer

24K Ultra Day Moisturizer

To help lock in the benefits of the 24K Nano Ultra Silk Serum, follow up this step with a lush moisturizer like the 24K Ultra Day Moisturizer. Formulated specifically for all-day wear, this cream combines sunflower seed oil, avocado oil, and CBD oil to simultaneously soften the feel of the skin and keep water sealed within.

Lastly, the difference between morning and night skincare routines is punctuated by one very important step: sunscreen. The culminating step to daytime skincare, sunscreen is crucial for keeping the skin protected against UV radiation.

Your Skin in the Evening

Woman doing skincare understanding the difference between morning and night skincare routines

If the skin is exposed to stressors in the daytime, what happens to it while you sleep? And how does this contribute to the difference between morning and night skincare routines?

We all know that the time you spend sleeping is vital for muscle recovery and general relaxation. However, studies show that resting during this window is also important for skin health. Throughout the recommended six to eight hours of sleep, the body undergoes certain processes that help maintain skin health, such as: 

  • In hours one to three of sleep, the pituitary gland releases a hormone in charge of repairing the skin. This hormone, called somatotropin, also keeps the skin looking young and plump.
  • In the next two hours of sleep, the body begins to produce more melatonin. Like the antioxidants mentioned in this post thus far, melatonin helps keep the skin safe against free radicals.
  • In the last stage of sleep, the body undergoes rapid eye movement (otherwise known as REM). In this phase, skin-firming collagen is produced more quickly. The body also relaxes, with muscles easing up and cortisol levels gradually declining. 

In addition to getting enough sleep, an evening routine can keep your skin looking its best. This is the difference between morning and night skincare routines: while morning skincare focuses on protection, evening skincare should be targeted towards recovery.

An OROGOLD Evening Skincare Routine

Now that we know the difference between morning and night skincare routines, the evening regimen that we recommend will be primarily geared towards products that leave the skin feeling repaired.

The 24K Mousse Cleanser

OROGOLD toner

Start your evening routine with the 24K Mousse Cleanser. While gel and foam cleansers are common cleanser choices, using ones with mousse or cream consistencies can deliver more moisture.

The 24K Mousse Cleanser is particularly interesting because of the surfactants it contains. Surfactants are the components of products that are in charge of cleansing the skin. Unlike most cleansers, OROGOLD’s 24K Mousse Cleanser uses coconut-derived ingredients like sodium cocoyl alkyl esters and sodium lauroyl methyl isethionate. 

Despite containing gentler ingredients, the 24K Mousse Cleanser gets the job done, effectively lifting dirt, makeup, and sunscreen without fail. 

If you’d like to elevate your evening cleanse even further, use the 24K Deep Facial Brush Set along with the 24K Mousse Cleanser. With two attachable brushes, this tool ensures a more relaxing, more thorough cleanse.

The 24K Deep Lift Stretching Mask

White Gold products

Besides the need for sun protection, the difference between morning and night skincare routines is that you typically have less time to indulge in your regimen in the morning. Most of us get out of bed, get ready as fast as we can, and make our way to work. This leaves minimal time for the more relaxing skincare steps, like masking.

Make the most of your evening by basking in the unique relaxation that a good mask can provide. One of our favorites at OROGOLD is the 24K Deep Lift Stretching Mask. Formulated for weekly use, this mask targets the visible signs of aging, like wrinkles and fine lines. 

Some of its star ingredients include:

  • Jojoba seed oil
  • Sunflower seed oil
  • Aloe Vera extract

The 24K Nano Night Recovery

24K Nano Night Recovery serum

The nighttime version of the 24K Nano Ultra Silk Serum, the 24K Nano Night Recovery contains a largely different list of ingredients. Rather than plant oils, the 24K Nano Night Recovery is formulated with green tea extract, aloe vera extract, and beech tree bud extract.

Chamomile extract is another interesting component of the serum’s ingredient list. It’ll leave your skin feeling soothed and calm.

The 24K Multi-Vitamin Night Nourishment + Retinol

24K Multi Vitamin Night Nourishment

Lastly, finish off your evening skincare routine with a night cream. More potent than a typical moisturizer, a night cream tends to be lusher and richer in texture. Our pick is the 24K Multi-Vitamin Night Nourishment + Retinol.

As the product’s name suggests, the superstar of the formula is retinol. Everyone, from lifestyle magazines to celebrities, has been raving about the ingredient for years, but what exactly has made it stick around?

Simple: it works. While retinol requires a certain level of tolerance, it delivers visible results when it comes to giving the skin a firmer and tighter appearance.

Despite its impressive benefits, retinol may cause dryness. To counter this, the 24K Multi-Vitamin Night Nourishment + Retinol is formulated with green tea extract and vitamin E to help leave the skin feeling calm and soothed.

It is also important to note that retinol heightens skin sensitivity. This highlights the difference between morning and night skincare routines: retinol must be used in the evening and requires the use of sunscreen the next day.

Summary

Getting the most out of your regimen does not stop at knowing the difference between morning and night skincare routines. It’s all about what you do with that knowledge that matters. With Orogold’s curated skincare solutions, you can unlock the best version of your skin yet.

Our 10 Favorite Spring Skincare Tips 

Woman following spring skincare tips

Just because the cold of winter is behind us doesn’t mean we can suddenly forget about our skincare routine. With every new season comes new weather, which means your skin is likely to notice a change.

If you’re nodding along noticing your skincare lineup has either become a little too heavy for the warmer weather, or you simply desire a change for the new season ahead, OROGOLD has you covered. Scroll on to discover all of our favorite spring skincare tips with irresistible product recommendations.

Exfoliate Regularly

OROGOLD Deep Peeling + Mandelic Acid

If the cold winter weather meant that your skin was too sensitive or dry to exfoliate, make sure you use spring as your sign to start exfoliating again. Regularly exfoliating your skin is our top recommended way to slough away dirt and dead skin cells from your complexion. Plus, it leaves your skin feeling super soft and smooth once you’re done. Also, your make-up will go on smoother and stay on for much longer with a more even base. 

Guess what?

That’s not all!

Exfoliating your skin will also serve to brighten the appearance of your complexion if it’s looking a little dull, dry, or lifeless throughout the winter months. You’ll notice that as the dry skin melts away and your face feels softer again, your skin will look healthier and more glowy too. What’s not to love! 

If you don’t fancy physically exfoliating your skin, as it can be a little rough, that’s no problem either. Simply try a gel formula that will gently exfoliate the skin instead without any risk of abrasion.

Our go-to exfoliation product for the face has to be our 24K Multi-Vitamin Deep Peeling + Mandelic Acid. This best-selling exfoliator gel has a gentle but effective formula that’s suitable (and works wonders) for all skin types. 

Also, as it contains ingredients such as Bamboo Stem Powder, Mandelic Acid, and Vitamin C, you can be sure of gentle exfoliation that leaves you and your skin feeling soft, nourished, and refreshed.

Whether you’re short on time or simply prefer products that you don’t need to worry about rinsing off each time you apply them, let us fill you in on one of our top recommended skincare tips – leave on exfoliators.

For a leave-on exfoliator that will truly transform your skin this spring, our 24K Cryogenic Diamond Gommage exfoliator is everything you need. It’s a breakthrough solution that, once massaged into the skin in gentle circular motions, should be left to work its magic. It’s made with coconut, green tea, and chamomile extract, all of which combine to remove excess oils and debris from the skin in a gentle yet effective way. 

Don’t Forget to Exfoliate Your Body!

OROGOLD gold scrub for body

When we think, talk, or hear about ‘skincare’ we’re usually discussing the skin on our faces. It is the most delicate after all and usually requires the most amount of care to keep it on track. 

That said, we really shouldn’t be forgetting about the skin on our bodies when choosing the products we use to keep our skin feeling healthy. Skincare is important for all of your skin, especially when a change in season could cause skin issues in reaction to new weather. 

With that in mind, the next of our spring skincare tips is to bring that facial exfoliation we talked about to the rest of your skin. Good body exfoliation can be achieved in lots of ways, from natural remedies to mitts and brushes to top-of-the-line skincare products. 

Our favorite?

The OROGOLD 24K Classic Body Scrub. We can only describe using this product as akin to a luxury spa treatment! The formula works to gently exfoliate the skin so it feels fresh and renewed every time. Even after just one use, your skin will feel velvety soft and silky, ready for moisturization! 

Like many other exfoliators, this luxury treatment is best used in the shower. Switch the water off when you’re ready to apply yours, then simply massage a little of the scrub onto wet skin in circular motions. Once you’ve treated your whole body (apart from your face, of course) simply rinse the scrub away with warm water. 

Pro tip – make sure the water is only warm to lukewarm. If it gets too hot, it’ll aggravate your skin, leaving it looking red and dry. And that’s not what we want for spring… or any other season!

Always Moisturize Your Face

Day cream with cosmetic gold

Now, though we totally get that your skin doesn’t need the exact same amount of moisturizer every day (or even the same product for that matter), we do suggest always moisturizing your skin to keep it feeling supple and soft at all times. 

On days where your skin feels pretty moisturized already, simply use a little less. On days where it’s feeling dry, add a touch more. 

As far as our fave spring skincare tips go, moisturizing the skin is especially important after our first tip, exfoliating. 

Why?

It’s simple.

Exfoliating your skin removes excess dirt and dead skin, but it also removes excess oils. Though they are excess, you may find your skin feels a little drier than usual afterward if you don’t replace that lost moisture with a quality cream, oil, or serum. In springtime, OROGOLD highly recommends the 24K Multi-Vitamin Day Moisturizer + Amino Acid.

This luxurious cream is made to work alongside the 24K Multi Vitamin Deep Peeling + Mandelic Acid Exfoliator. It’s formulated with white tea extract and organic chamomile for a non-greasy formula. It provides a reduced appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Skin that looks plump and youthful is achievable using these two products in tandem. 

Moisturize Your Body Too

OROGOLD body butter

Next on our list of top spring skincare tips? That’s right, moisturize the skin on your body! When spring arrives the days are longer and the weather is warmer. This means we often forget or don’t think it’s as important to moisturize as we do in winter. 

Well, we’re here to tell you that you should absolutely still be moisturizing the skin on your body, even after the winter chill is long gone.

That said, we do understand that you might not need as thick of a formula as you did in December. Therefore, we recommend switching things up with a slightly light consistency when the time comes to choose your spring skincare. 

Need easy spring skincare tips when it comes to moisturizing your body? Choose the 24K Classic Body Butter, which feels incredibly creamy and luxurious, and perfect for very dehydrated skin.

It’s ideal for daily use with a non-greasy consistency that conditions the look of the skin for a satin-smooth feel. Simply massage it into the desired area until it’s absorbed, leaving your skin feeling silky smooth. 

Plan For Spring… And Summer

Body mist for spring skincare tips

If you’re looking for a truly lightweight formula that’ll see you through to summer, you can call off the search. The 24K Hydrating Body Mist is just what you need. What’s more, selecting products that’ll work for you from season to season is one of our favorite spring skincare tips!

This lightly scented, hydrating body mist will give your skin a refreshed feel with a healthy-looking glow. It’s made with green tea extract to soothe the look of your skin.

Give Your Hands Some TLC

OG Hand Mask

It may seem like a winter suggestion but looking after the skin on your hands is actually one of our biggest spring skincare tips.

Not sure why?

We can explain.

Throughout winter, moisturizing your hands is easy to remember. You’re in and out of the cold, taking gloves on and off, and running your hands under warm water every chance you get! As the skin on your hands becomes dryer, it stands to reason you would want to moisturize them more.

Now, when spring arrives, that reminder is all but gone. However, that doesn’t mean your hands magically become moisturized all by themselves. In fact, you’re more likely to find that once you quickly stop moisturizing your hands, they feel dryer than ever. Especially after months of cold harsh weather and hot central heating. 

To combat this, moisturizing your hands is always a good idea in spring. Additionally, we recommend indulging with a luxurious hand mask when you can! 

Is this one of our top spring skincare tips?

You bet it is.

The 24K Multi-Vitamin Hand Mask is the ultimate product when it comes to getting your hands feeling soft and smooth for spring. With an extravagant blend of beautifying jojoba and sunflower seed oils, this hand mask will reduce the look of wrinkles and fine lines on the hands. It’ll leave them feeling supple, smooth, and more moisturized than ever before. Just what they need and deserve after a long harsh winter!

Upgrade Your SPF

Even in winter, wearing SPF is essential for skin health because yes, the sun’s rays, though not quite as harsh in winter, can still damage your skin without it! With a new warmer season upon us, it’s probably no surprise that the next of our spring skincare tips involves upgrading your SPF for greater protection against the sun. 

Whilst factor 15 might have seen you through the past few months, now that spring approaches, we’re switching it up to SPF 30 and highly recommend that you do too!

Bearing in mind that 80% of skin aging is caused by overexposure to the sun, it’s incredibly important to protect yourself every time you step outside. Make sure that you look for a broad-spectrum sunscreen. This will combat premature aging but also, and more importantly, it’ll help to prevent sunburn caused by UVB rays as well as overexposure to UVA rays, which can cause skin cancer.

Love Your Lips

24K lip balm

If the skin on your hands didn’t dry out in the winter, then we’re betting the skin on your lips certainly did. Since the skin here is so sensitive to the cold, it’s incredibly common for our lips to chap, crack, and peel in sub-zero temperatures and chilling winds. So, by the time spring rolls around, they could do with some extra TLC! Treat yours to the 24K Renewal Lip Balm for a plumper, healthier-looking pout ready for plenty of smiles throughout the season ahead! 

It’s made with botanical oils selected for their ability to gently soothe and smooth the appearance of dry lips. Plus, you can apply it any time anywhere for an instant refresh. Pack yours in your bag and take it with you wherever you go, so your lips will never feel sore or dry again.

Pro tip: After going through your nighttime skincare routine and applying your favorite creams and serums, we suggest dabbing a little lip balm over your lips for some serious overnight TLC!

Summary

Are you ready for the new season now that you’ve read our spring skincare tips? We’re guessing so! If you’re having trouble choosing which to follow, we suggest you pick them all.

Have You Tried the 24K Rose Gold Collection Yet?

24K Rose Gold Collection

With the world’s innate fascination with all things decadent, it comes as no surprise that there are tons of new fads surrounding luxury skincare ingredients. This comes in many forms, like magnetic masks made of silver or moisturizing creams infused with truffle extracts.

Those out-of-this-world ideas sound innovative and exciting, sure. But sometimes, what works best for your skin are tried and tested natural oils that nourish the skin and bring out the best of your luxury ingredients.

That’s the whole reason why we designed our 24K Rose Gold Collection — a line of gold-infused skincare products with a romantic touch. Spoiler alert: that romantic touch is pretty, pink packaging and a generous helping of rosehip oil.

Curious about this exclusive OROGOLD collection? Here’s a rundown of what it offers and how it helps plump up the appearance your skin.

What is the 24K Rose Gold Collection?

OROGOLD Exclusive 24K Rose Gold Collection

The 24K Rose Gold Collection combines the goodness of rosehip oil with the properties of gold. Together, they can give your skin that gorgeous, healthy glow you’ve been looking for. Plus, they’ll also deliver an ultra-luxurious skincare experience at home.

Let’s start with talking about gold, OROGOLD’s signature and most-prized ingredient. Gold isn’t just a precious metal that looks pretty in jewelry. It also helps to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

The 24K Rose Gold Collection’s Secret Weapon: Rosehip Oil

Now, let’s talk about the 24K Rose Gold Collection’s star ingredient: rosehip oil. This oil is extracted from the seeds of rose bushes. This is not to be confused with rose oil, which is extracted from the flower’s petals. Rosehip oil has been loved since way back in the ancient days.

One of the most attractive benefits of rosehip oil is how moisturizing it is on the skin. 

Rosehip oil is also terrific for reducing the appearance of skin aging. It’ll give your skin a firmer and plumper look.

Now that you know what gold and rosehip oil do for your skin, let’s take a look at how these powerhouse ingredients work together to give you the best-looking skin possible:

Moisturize Dehydrated Skin Each Night with the 24K Rose Gold Advanced Cream

The 24K Rose Gold Collection

If you have dry, dehydrated skin that looks dull, it needs moisture to freshen it up and add some glow. The 24K Rose Gold Advanced Cream is perfect for that. It’s a rich, thick cream that’s designed especially for moisturizing parched skin.

This cream is formulated with some incredible ingredients. In this blend, you’ll find rosehip extracts, avocado oil, soybean oil, and sodium hyaluronate, among others. All of these natural oils and substances help hydrate the skin.

The cream is also rich in vitamin E — a fatty vitamin that prevents the appearance of premature wrinkles and lines. Vitamin E also helps combat the feeling of flaking and itchiness that can come about from having intensely dry skin. 

But even with all these ultra-rich ingredients, this cream doesn’t leave the skin feeling greasy. Instead, it makes it feel smooth and silky while giving it a supple, dewy finish.

Get Matte Skin with the 24K Rose Gold Radiant Silk Cream

Cream

Having oily skin is a tough battle. Not only do you have to deal with large pores, constant breakouts, and a shiny face mid-day, but you also need to think through what kind of moisturizers will work for you. Pick an overly rich one and you could end up looking like a disco ball.

One way to beat the look of oiliness while still moisturizing your skin properly is by using a cream with a matte finish. That way, you get all the benefits of a rich moisturizer without worrying how greasy your skin will end up looking after an hour or two.

The 24K Rose Gold Radiant Silk Cream is one such moisturizer. Although it’s packed with so many hydrating ingredients — like açaí and rosehip seed extracts, vitamin E, and hyaluronic acid — it still leaves your skin looking and feeling matte.

This velvety finish smoothens the appearance of the skin while making it feel comfortable. This is a huge plus for oily gals.

Aside from these hydrating oils and vitamins, the cream also contains ingredients to help wake up the feel of your skin, like vitamin A and caffeine. 

Feed Your Skin Deep, Intense Hydration with the 24K Rose Gold Hydro Mask

Mask

Now, the two creams we’ve mentioned above are wonderful at moisturizing the skin on a nightly basis. But when the colder winter months come, or if you’re experiencing dry patches on your skin because of eczema or rosacea, you need to bring out something more intensely hydrating — like a weekly mask.

The 24K Rose Gold Hydro Mask is a leave-on mask that rejuvenates the look of extremely dry and dull skin. It’s created with a blend of moisturizing oils, including avocado, rosehip, sunflower seed, and soybean oil. Together, they’ll give you the moisture your dry skin is begging for.

It’s also chock-full of botanical extracts and oils. These help to reduce the appearance of age spots and wrinkles. It has peptides and sodium hyaluronate too. Both are known to plump up the look of the skin and leave it feeling supple and full.

Kiss the Appearance of Wrinkles Goodbye with the 24K Rose Gold IV Filler Concentrate

Wrinkle filler

If you have a wedding to attend or a photoshoot to look perfect for, you don’t have the luxury of time to wait until your moisturizing products work. You need something that will work to erase the look of your wrinkles ASAP. That’s what the 24K Rose Gold IV Filler Concentrate is for.

This potent concentrate is a quick solution if you need to achieve skin that looks smooth and wrinkle-free immediately. It contains DMAE and retinyl palmitate to help plump up and volumize the appearance of your skin upon application. It’ll give you a more sculpted, instantly youthful finish.

While DMAE is known to drastically minimize the appearance of wrinkles and undereye circles, retinyl palmitate (a gentler form of vitamin A that’s great for sensitive skin) helps firm up the look of the skin.

The concentrate also includes other moisturizing ingredients, like vitamin E, cucumber extracts, grape seed extracts, squalene, and sweet almond oil.

Using it is simple. Just take the cap off of the applicator and apply one or two pumps of the concentrate on your fingers. Carefully spread this serum directly onto the targeted wrinkle and gently pat the solution into it. 

Boost the Look of Radiance with the 24K Rose Gold Age Glow Duo

24K Rose Gold Duo

The last product we have in the 24K Rose Gold Collection is a two-in-one set: the 24K Rose Gold Age Glow Duo. This set has two components that are sure to give your complexion a bright and radiant glow.

The first is the 24K Rose Gold Multi-Vital Liquid Powder. It is formulated with hyaluronic acid and resveratrol to wake up the skin and leave it feeling soft and hydrated.

It’s quite an innovative product to use. It looks like a powder at first, but when you gently massage it into your skin, it transforms into a liquid. This step is also designed to prep your skin for the next product.

The 24K Rose Gold Enriching Serum is rich in decadent, luxurious ingredients, such as caviar, seaweed, and aloe extracts. It’s a potent serum that should be followed up with a cream to seal all the hydration in your dermis layer.

Incorporating the Entire 24K Rose Gold Collection into Your Routine

Now that you know which products are included in the 24K Rose Gold Collection, you might be wondering how to incorporate them into your current routine, especially since it isn’t a full regimen in itself.

But with a good selection of basic products and proper knowledge on how to layer your skincare products, using the 24K Rose Gold Collection will be a breeze:

  • Always start with a gentle cleansing routine to remove all the gunk, sweat, and makeup from your skin. Use a double-cleanse method with a skin-loving oil cleanser and facial foam that will thoroughly wash your skin without stripping it of its natural oils. Starting with a good cleansing routine gives your 24K Rose Gold Collection products a better chance at penetrating the skin more, allowing the deeper layers to absorb all the nutrients our formulas have to offer.
  • After cleansing, start with the thinnest products first. Go for the serums in the 24K Rose Gold Age Glow Duo before sealing in all that moisturizing goodness with one of the creams. Layering this way will help your skin retain hydration for a longer time.
  • Then, as you go, add in products that you’ll be using only on occasion. First is the Hydro Mask, which you can use weekly for a feeling of extra softness and moisture, especially during the winter months. You also have the Filler Concentrate, which you might use when you’re going to an event and need perfect-looking skin.

Interested in trying out all the products in the 24K Rose Gold Collection? Save yourself the trouble of buying each one individually and go for the entire set. It’s a terrific set to purchase if you’ve tried a few of the Rose Gold products before and are ready to commit to the whole collection.

Conclusion

More than its Instagrammable pink packaging and the opulence of being infused with gold, the 24K Rose Gold Collection is a sure winner for skin that looks thirsty and dull. 

Gold is climbing its way to becoming a popular luxury skincare ingredient, and rosehip oil has been a fan favorite among beauty enthusiasts for years. Together, they make an unstoppable formulation — one you cannot afford to miss if you need extra moisture in your skin.

So, don’t sleep on the 24K Rose Gold Collection. Whether you try one product from the line or bag the whole set to try out all of them, your skin is sure to thank you for its fresh new radiant look.

8 Ways to Turn Your Skincare Routine Into an Act of Self Love

Woman using skincare products to love your skin

Self love is all about learning to truly appreciate yourself. It means that you prioritize your own well-being and health, taking the extra steps necessary to treat yourself. This, as a result, leads to less stress, reduced anxiety, and a higher level of satisfaction with life in general.

There are numerous ways to practice self love, and your skincare routine is one of them. If your current skincare routine doesn’t make you feel excited, adored, and pampered, then it’s time for a change. Here are OROGOLD’s eight favorite changes to make to a skincare routine to turn this daily ritual into an act of self love.

Elevate Your Cleansing Regimen

Cleansing brush for self love skincare

Cleansing is the most basic part of every skincare routine. It’s something that we do every day, which is why many of us end up doing it on autopilot. After all, there’s nothing exciting to it, right?

Wrong. Cleansing may be basic, but it’s a way to show your skin some respect. Not only is it the foundation to the rest of your skincare routine, but it also frees your skin of the dirt and stressors of the day.

So, if you’ve been finding the cleansing process a little tedious lately, investigate the many different ways in which you can elevate your cleansing regimen to the point where the thought of cleansing gets your heart racing!

How? For starters, find a cleanser that makes your skin feel loved and nourished. For this, we’d point to our 24K Mousse Cleanser. It produces such a satisfying lather (but don’t worry, it won’t dry out your skin) that you’ll truly feel ultra-pampered while you’re massaging this formula into your skin.

Want to take things even further? Try our 24K Deep Facial Brush Set. This is a cleansing brush with two detachable heads. One is for a deep cleanse and the other is more of a gentle, massaging motion. Try pairing this head with your favorite serum or moisturizer to treat yourself to a relaxing facial massage – the ultimate act of skincare self love!

Start Using a Toner

24K toner is a great way to treat yourself

We’ll be honest – when it comes to a basic skincare routine, a toner isn’t absolutely essential. While we do always recommend using one, we can also understand why many choose not to. After all, who needs an additional step in their skincare routine when they’re trying to get through it as quickly as possible?

That’s all well and good, but if you want to turn your skincare routine into an act of self love, it’s time to slow down. Stop rushing through each step and add in those extra products that may not be vital, but are still a good way to show your skin some love. And that is where a toner comes in.

That said, don’t go rushing out to buy the first toner that you see. They’re not all good – some actually contain very drying ingredients. So, if you want to really love your skin instead of unintentionally causing it harm, look for an alcohol-free toner that also contains humectants and vitamins (hint: you’ll find all of that in the OROGOLD 24K Purifying Toner).

Indulge in a Face Mask…Or Three

OROGOLD face masks

Face masks have always been a way to practice self love. One quick look at the self love hashtag on Instagram will confirm that. It’s easy to see why – a face mask forces you to take 15 minutes out of your week to really focus on your skin.

Choosing the right mask for how your skin is feeling at the time shows your skin that you’re listening to it and that you respect it. However, what if your skin is feeling more than one thing? Maybe your forehead is looking stressed and oily, but your cheeks are feeling dehydrated and flaky.

Well, the beauty of face masks is that you don’t need to use just one. This is where multi-masking comes in – a technique that involves using multiple face masks in one go. This way, you can treat your oily forehead with a clay mask while hydrating your dry cheeks with a creamy mask.

We offer a wide range of face masks here at OROGOLD. Several of them are suitable for mixing and matching to create your very own self love multi-masking treatment. Need some inspiration? Here are a few of our favorites:

Would you prefer to indulge in self love all night with a leave-on overnight mask? Check out the OROGOLD Nano Hydra Silk Mask. It starts off as a creamy mask that then transforms into liquid droplets that dry skin literally drinks up. It’s a great way to treat yourself and treat your skin at the same time!

Invest in High-Performance Treatments

24K Rose Gold Duo

Good skincare doesn’t always have to be expensive, but it usually is. After all, the research, trials, exclusive ingredients, and everything else that goes into a high-performance formula don’t come cheap.

This doesn’t mean that your entire skincare routine needs to cost a fortune. However, it’s worth picking out one or two skin concerns that you want to focus on and then investing in high-performance formulas that will actually get the job done.

One example would be our 24K Rose Gold Age Glow Duo. This product comes in the form of both a powder and a serum – they each contain ingredients that work beautifully when combined, yet if they’re combined in the same formula, they’ll deactivate each other. You apply the powder first and then follow up with the serum, enabling your skin to benefit from a combination of high-powered ingredients that aren’t often used together in skincare products.

Feed Your Skin With Superfoods

OROGOLD 24K Wild Caviar

Clean eating is a big part of self love, and you can apply this concept to your skin too. One way would be to favor products that are able to provide a dose of superfood goodness to your skin.

These days, that’s pretty easy. Superfoods have become a huge trend in skincare, meaning that there are a multitude of superfood-infused products out there to choose from.

Where it gets tricky is keeping things clean. Take a look at the ingredient lists of some of those superstar superfood skincare products and you’ll notice many nasties that have no place in a self love routine.

This is why we wanted to offer people a way to feed a superfood to their skin in its whole form. The superfood we chose? Caviar. It’s one of the most nutritious foods in the world – it contains a long list of vitamins, proteins, and healthy fats. Not only are these good for your body and overall health, but those nutrients work wonders for the appearance of the skin too.

While you could go ahead and apply some store-bought caviar to your skin, we wanted to make the experience even more luxurious for you. Take a look at the OROGOLD 24K Wild Caviar. These little pots contain real wild American caviar mixed with tea tree oil and 24K gold. That’s all – no filler ingredients and definitely no nasties. Use it regularly and your skin will soon be glowing from all of that self love.

Go High-Tech With Your Skincare

OROGOLD Devices: Jelessi & Torche

For many people, self love means cutting back on the technology in their lives. However, for others, the opposite is true. There’s often nothing quite like the excitement that comes from using an impressive piece of technology, which is why you may want to treat yourself and your skin to a new skincare device.

That’s right. Unlike all of your other devices that do more harm than good to your skin, skincare devices do the opposite. 

If you’re a skincare device newbie, then it’s understandable if taking the leap into high-tech skincare seems a little frightening. However, one way to practice self love is to challenge yourself and push your boundaries, so do exactly that!

Start by picking an area of your skin that would benefit from some extra TLC and self love. Then, find a device that targets that area. For example, if your eye area is looking wrinkled and dull, consider the Photonix-2 Jade Eye Wand. Or, if the skin on your neck has started to look saggy, the Photonix-3 Neck Solution may be just what you need to love your skin again.

Both of those devices make use of LED technology to transform the appearance of the skin.

Spend Time Showing Your Hands and Body Some Love

OROGOLD gold scrub

It’s easy to focus on the face when it comes to skincare. After all, this is the main part of you that other people see. However, self love is about more than just appearances. If you want to truly love your skin, then you need to love all of it, including the skin on your hands and your body.

Chances are that you have a well-established facial skincare routine. However, do you have one for your body too? If not, then one way to embrace self love would be to put a body skincare routine together.

Need some help? We recommend starting with a hydrating body wash while you’re in the shower (remember to keep your shower temperature lukewarm instead of skin-stripping hot). Then, exfoliate away those rough and dull skin cells with a body scrub – our 24K Classic Body Scrub is a firm favorite for many! Finish up with a spritz of a body mist and a generous slathering of body butter – your skin will feel softer and more loved than ever!

As for your hands, treat it to a mask every once in a while. After all, nobody wants to be dealing with the appearance of hand wrinkles before they actually need to be. Try our 24K Multi-Vitamin Hand Mask for a decadent way to treat yourself.

Find a Sunscreen That You Actually Like

OROGOLD SPF moisturizer

As we mentioned, self love focuses on the importance of appreciating and respecting yourself. This means keeping yourself safe from harm, including the harm that the sun’s UV rays can cause.

The damage caused by the sun is pretty well-known now. Not only is the sun responsible for 80% of visible facial aging (meaning those fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots), but it also causes skin cancer.

If you’re not already religiously applying sunscreen each time you leave the house, no matter the weather outside, then you’re failing your skin and your body big time.

Ready to make this self love improvement in your life?

We understand that it can be difficult to remember to wear a sunscreen, so look for a facial moisturizer that contains SPF. Our 24K Skin Tone SPF 30 offers broad-spectrum protection while also being infused with vitamins, botanical extracts, and 24K gold. Not only will it protect you and your skin from the sun, but it also feels so lush on your skin that reapplying your SPF throughout the day will no longer feel like such a chore. Instead, it will be another act of self love that you look forward to.

Summary

Self love has different meanings for everyone, but there’s no denying that taking good care of your skin is a big part of this. Your skincare routine should be an enjoyable part of your day, and here at OROGOLD, we make sure that this is the case.

Lip Care 101: How to Get a Perfect-Looking Pout

Woman touching lips

Using the right lip care techniques to achieve a perfect-looking pout is the latest goal in the realm of beauty. However, it can be difficult to navigate how, exactly, to attain gorgeous lips. After all, seasonal changes, temperature and humidity fluctuations, various environmental factors, and certain behaviors can all impact the health and appearance of our lips. 

Rest assured that at OROGOLD, we know just what your lips need. Today, we’re sharing our best tips on how to care for your lips. We’ll also be recommending some lip care products you’ll no doubt want to snag today!

Keep Your Lips Moisturized with a Hydrating Balm

24K lip balm

If you’re ready to tackle your lip care goals head-on but are starting off with lips that feel dry or chapped, you’ll want to prioritize moisturizing your lips. How? With a moisturizing lip balm. That said, there are many different ways to tackle these unfortunate symptoms. But, first and foremost, you want to focus on using hydrating products to help your lips hold onto moisture. And a balm is perfect for this.

Just as the rest of you becomes dry and dehydrated during dry, colder weather, so do your lips. Your lips don’t have any oil glands to help them hold onto their moisture. This lack of oil glands means your lips are much more prone to dryness than other parts of your body.

Lip balms that contain high-quality ingredients can feel ultra restorative for dehydrated lips. At OROGOLD, we recommend keeping a hydrating balm with you at all times. Apply your lip balm as necessary for soothing lip comfort. It should also be a proactive step to avoid the loss of necessary moisture whenever your lips feel parched. 

The Ultimate Lip Care Product: The 24K Renewal Lip Balm

For this important job, we recommend our 24k Renewal Lip Balm. A soothing balm for your lips, we’ve developed this product with care to provide your lips with a more softened and moistened appearance whenever you use it. Our 24k Renewal Lip Balm is infused with botanical oils, along with minerals, and vitamins. These include:

  • Gold
  • Shea Butter
  • Avocado Oil
  • Vitamins C and E.

The Vitamin E in our 24k Renewal Lip Balm is the star ingredient to look for in effective moisturizing lip care products. Vitamin E has numerous benefits for lip care and achieving an enviable pout.

Regularly Exfoliate Your Lips

When it comes to lip care, a crucial step toward achieving the ultimate enviable pout is the process of exfoliation on and around your lips. Exfoliating is the key to maintaining balanced, healthy-looking skin and lips. The process of exfoliation removes dry, dull, and dead skin cells. Exfoliation also clears your pores of the build-up of dirt, debris, sweat, oil, and old makeup. 

The key to achieving the perfect pout through the process of exfoliation is to know how often you should exfoliate. Most skincare experts suggest exfoliating two to three times per week on a regular basis. Ideally, you should exfoliate immediately after cleansing your skin and lips. When you exfoliate regularly on this schedule, your lips will benefit from the powerful ingredients packed in your exfoliating product.

How to Exfoliate Your Lips

For this important step of your lip care routine, we recommend our 24K Multi-Vitamin Deep Peeling. It’s a truly unique exfoliating gel that we’ve specially formulated with a plethora of effective ingredients, including Mandelic Acid, brightening Vitamin C, and Bamboo Stem Powder. This gel-like formula is non-abrasive and yet highly effective at removing stubborn dead skin and buildup that may be accumulating on your skin and lips. As a result, you’ll be able to reveal the gorgeousness beneath. 

Use our 24K Multi-Vitamin Deep Peeling to gently polish your lips and the surrounding skin. It’s an elixir that will leave your skin and lips looking luminous and thoroughly restored as part of your lip care routine.

Avoid Irritating Ingredients in Lip Care and Makeup Products

Woman using lip balm for lip care

When pursuing that healthy pout, it can be confusing to know which ingredients are safe for your lips and which ingredients can cause irritation, inflammation, and damage. As a general rule for lip care, it’s best to avoid balms that contain Menthol, Camphor, Eucalyptus, Octinoxate or Oxybenzone, and Parabens.

One way to ensure that you are avoiding harmful ingredients on your lips is to avoid products that cause burning or stinging after they’re applied. Many think these symptoms are a sign that their lip care products are working. However, discomfort is never a sign of a quality lip product. Instead, it’s a sign that the ingredients in the product are irritating your lips. This means that they could be causing more harm than good.

Our 24K Renewal Lip Balm is free from irritants and inflammatory ingredients. In fact, it’s infused with our star soothing ingredient – 24k Gold. Your lips will look healthier than ever!

Stop Licking Your Lips

We’ve all been there. Our lips get dry and feel chapped and the temptation to lick them and give them some moisture is strong. But as part of your new lip care regimen, it’s an absolute must that you stop licking your lips!

It may surprise you to know that the act of licking your lips is actually counterproductive. While licking your lips briefly makes them feel more hydrated and moistened, by the time the saliva evaporates, which happens fast, our lips are actually left drier. This cycle can become a bad one, increasingly drying the lip area to the point of pain. Licking your lips can actually cause other problems as well. Persistent licking can result in an increase of chapping, flaky skin on the lips, peeling skin, and splitting, cracking skin. Not only can these symptoms be extremely uncomfortable, but they can also wreak havoc on the appearance as well!

Whenever the temptation to lip your lips is strong, we recommend not only nixing your bad habit but using our 24K Renewal Lip Balm as often as necessary as well! Consistent use of our lip balm will keep that pucker feeling fully moisturized and free you from the temptation to lick your lips.

Use a Rich Cream Around Your Lips to Prevent Lip Lines

Another important step to prepare your lips to rock an enviable pout is to use a rich cream around your lips. This will prevent the appearance of lip lines from forming.

Packing a combination of well researched natural and synthetic ingredients, including Vitamins A, C, and E along with Shea Butter, Organic Chamomile, and our signature cosmetic Gold, our 24K Multi-Vitamin Day Moisturizer + Amino Acid is a product that will help to give your skin a smoother and softer appearance.

Stay Hydrated From Within

When it comes to your lips, maintaining a healthy level of hydration from within is absolutely paramount. Water affects the hydration levels in each and every part of our bodies. If we’re not drinking enough water, we are producing less saliva. This makes our lips look and feel parched, dry, and dehydrated.

The recommended amount of water we should be consuming for optimal luscious lips is six to eight glasses per day. If it’s hard to remember to get your glasses in on a daily basis, try drinking two glasses before each meal. 

To stay hydrated from within, you’ll also want to avoid drinking an excess of caffeine. Caffeine acts as a diuretic and will flush the hydrating fluid from your body. This can lead to signs of dehydration throughout your body, including in your lips.

While drinking plenty of water is the best way to stay hydrated from within, you can also sleep near a humidifier to maintain moist and hydrated lips. If the air in your home lacks humidity or the weather is cold and you are pumping a lot of heat into your home, the healthy moisture in your skin, and lips, will evaporate. A humidifier helps to counteract the impact that dry air and seasonal weather changes can have on your lips. It’ll help your lips stay supple and moist.

Use an LED Device to Plump Up the Look of Your Lips

If you’ve been following the popular trends in skin and lip care, you’ve likely heard of LED light therapy as a treatment for a variety of skincare concerns. Providing non-abrasive, targeted improvements to the appearance of your skin and lips, LED light therapy is backed by innovative research. Use of LED light therapy is proven to improve the appearance of your skin and lips in many ways including reducing the appearance of both fine lines and wrinkles, boosting the look of radiance, and more. 

At OROGOLD, we’ve harnessed the power of LED light therapy technology and developed handheld devices for home use. That’s right, you can now take your lip routine to the next level and plump the appearance of your pout from the comfort of your own home. 

While we don’t have an LED device specifically for the lips, look into the Photonix-2 Jade Eye Wand. Set the device onto its anti-aging mode and then use it on your lips. It’ll give your pucker a smoother and plumper finish.
