Why It’s Important to De-Stress for Your Skin 

Relaxed woman with good skin

Not all stress is bad stress. While most of us typically do all we can to avoid stress, at times, it can be a positive force. Short-term or acute stress can help heighten the senses and clear your thoughts. For a brief moment, the body’s collagen production also increases. However, it is when stress continues for an extended period that problems begin to arise.

Dealing with long-term stress can be an exhausting ideal. It can reshape your mindset and alter the way you approach your relationships. Chronic stress, when left unaddressed, takes a toll on the mind, the body, and the skin. This makes it important to take the time to de-stress for your skin. Stick with us at OROGOLD as we delve into this a little deeper.

How Stress Affects the Skin

Woman stressed

The brain and the skin are interconnected. Since birth, the psychological and physical aspects of our bodies have been intertwined. When the skin is touched, the brain helps perceive the sensation. Then, when the brain is stimulated, the skin flushes. When the mind is in distress, the skin shows it — sometimes in the form of breakouts, redness, eczema, or psoriasis flare-ups. 

On its own, the skin does a great job of protecting itself — even without the help of skincare. The skin’s natural barrier does most of the heavy lifting: keeping moisture locked in and keeping potential irritants out. However, when the stress hormone cortisol is produced in larger amounts than usual, it chips away at the skin barrier. This makes the skin more prone to irritation and hydration loss.

Besides this, cortisol also triggers the following effects:

  • An increase in sebum production, which gives the appearance of oilier and greasier skin
  • Stunted production of Hyaluronic Acid, which naturally occurs in the skin
  • Slower production of collagen, which leads to a less plump and youthful appearance

How to De-Stress for Your Skin

Knowing that chronic stress wreaks havoc both internally and externally, it is clear that exploring ways to effectively de-stress for your skin is necessary. This is especially true as the new year picks up, work begins to trickle in, and responsibilities are bound to come back in full force.

Here are a few methods to de-stress for your skin and for your health:

Remember: No is a Complete Sentence

It is extremely difficult to recover from stress when you are susceptible to it all the time. While we all want to be a reliable friend, a valuable colleague, or a hands-on boss, sometimes, the day-to-day duties that come with these roles can feel a little overwhelming. 

This year, remember the value of making yourself a priority. Take time to rest, to pursue hobbies, and to define self-care on your own terms — even if that means having to say no to certain things that are asked of you.

Me-Time: Kick Back with a Face Mask

OROGOLD face masks

Beyond addressing the root cause of your stress, there are a few other ways to effectively deal with mental strain or emotional pressure. One such method is carving out the time to sit back, relax, and put on a face mask every few days. 

While face masks are a great way to deliver an extra boost of nourishment to the skin, they also provide an avenue for rest and relaxation. They can simultaneously elevate a skincare routine with potent benefits to target specific skin concerns, while also simulating a spa-like break from reality.

At OROGOLD, we have a diverse range of face masks that can aid in your mission to de-stress for your skin and improve its look and texture:

The 24K Advanced Facial Mask

The 24K Advanced Facial Mask features a blend of three plant extracts:

  • Ivy Stem/Leaf
  • Aloe Vera
  • Betula Alba or Birch Bark

With antibacterial and antioxidant properties, these extracts neutralize free radicals and protect the skin against external irritation. Additionally, all three have soothing benefits to help the skin recover from breakouts or redness. Together with Hemp Seed Oil, Retinyl Palmitate, and Seaweed Extract, this mask refreshes and rejuvenates the skin after use.

To use, take a small amount of the 24K Advanced Facial Mask and massage it into the skin. Use light pressure and move in slow circular motions. Let the product rest on the skin for ten minutes before rinsing off with cool water.

The 24K Termica Energizing Mask

Another mask to consider is Orogold’s unique 24K Tèrmica® Energizing Mask. Infused with a trio of ingredients — Vitamins A, C, and E — this mask minimizes the appearance of dark spots, combats dullness, and smooths out uneven texture. Unlike run-of-the-mill wash-off masks, the 24K Tèrmica® Energizing Mask heats up when applied to the skin, making for a relaxing self-care experience. Every week, apply the mask onto cleansed skin in slow circular motions. Let the product rest on the skin for 10 minutes, letting it warm up the skin and relax your facial muscles. After ten minutes, rinse off the product with cool water.

The 24K Deep Tissue Rejuvenation Mask & Collagen Renewal Mask

If you aren’t one for wash-off masks, consider opting for a mess-free sheet mask like Orogold’s 24K Deep Tissue Rejuvenation Mask & Collagen Renewal Mask. While wash-off masks, which typically contain Bentonite or Kaolin, are typically a better choice for oily or acne-prone skin, sheet masks are a great option for all skin types. Soaked in an alcohol-free blend of Chitosan, Hyaluronic Acid, and Sea Algae Extracts, this mask delivers potent hydrating and reparative benefits. 

Each set comes with 14 full-face masks and 12 eye masks for days when your eye area needs a little additional care. To use, cleanse and tone the skin with your products of choice. Remove the full-face or eye mask from its packaging and securely apply it onto the face. Leave on for a few minutes before removing the gel mask. To maximize the product, carefully extract any remaining serum from the packaging and pat it into the skin.

Relax with LED Beauty Devices

OROGOLD Devices: Jelessi & Torche

Even before the worldwide pandemic changed the world as we knew it, at-home beauty devices were gaining mainstream popularity. Spa-grade DIY tools appealed to beauty junkies and skincare newbies alike because of their safety and convenience. 

Facial massagers, wands, and rollers are just a few of the beauty devices that can elevate your routine. However, among the various gadgets that are now widely available, one particular tool stands out for its diverse uses and effectiveness: the LED beauty device.

Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology did not start as a beauty innovation. Before being used to improve skin tone and texture, LED therapy was used in medicine. Some applications include NASA plant growth experiments that explored tissue repair and wound healing of Navy SEAL members.

Today, LED therapy is used in dermatology clinics, spas, and thousands of homes. Unlike other beauty devices, LED has several frequencies that can target specific skin concerns:

  • Red light or infrared visibly improves the skin by reducing inflammation on the surface. It also improves blood circulation and collagen production.
  • LED’s blue light is primarily used for its antimicrobial properties. With the ability to penetrate the skin and pores, blue LED light gets rid of deep-seated bacteria in the sebaceous glands. One clinical trial in the Journal of Dermatological Science proved the efficacy of this in improving acne, with blue light treatments resulting in a 64% reduction in lesions.

Choosing an LED Skincare Device

Both of those above frequencies are brought together in one convenient tool: the Jelessi Photonix-2 Jade Eye Wand. Mini but mighty, this convenient beauty tool targets the delicate eye area, which is prone to aging faster than the rest of the face.

With blue, red, and positive light technology to reduce swelling, smooth wrinkles, and boost product absorption, the Photonix-2 Jade Eye Wand can amplify the effects of your favorite eye creams. Taking the experience to the next level, the wand’s red light mode is combined with gentle heat to stimulate collagen production and help you de-stress for your skin.

Another interesting feature of this tool is its jade stone center. A few years ago, jade rollers gained popularity because of the stone’s ability to detoxify and tighten the skin. The Photonix-2 Jade Eye Wand highlights these benefits, surrounding the tool’s jade stone with a metal upper that can help cool or warm the skin.

To add the wand to your routine, prepare the skin by cleansing and patting dry with a towel. Next, decide which of Photonix-2 Jade Eye Wand’s two modes you want to use:

  • For the Anti-Puffiness Mode, press the device’s “C” button. Slowly massage the eye area for five minutes. 
  • For the Anti-Aging Mode, press the “H” button. Let the metal head warm up. After one minute, apply your preferred serum or eye cream directly onto the device’s metal upper. Carefully massage the eye area for five to seven minutes.

See Skincare as a Self-Care Method

Woman using skincare to de-stress for your skin

From skincare diets to ten-step routines, it seems like we’ve seen every regimen possible. We are constantly fed beauty advice — which products to use, which ingredients are best, how many different acids we need — that it can feel overwhelming. The constant influx of information can make skincare feel like a chore.

Rather than sweating the small stuff, reframe the way you see skincare. Instead of a task, see it as a way to de-stress for your skin. Constantly reinventing and expanding your routine with steps will eventually have you disliking taking care of your skin. Remember, no regimen is perfect. The best skincare routine is one that is simple, effective, and that you can commit to long-term. 

Here at Orogold, we pride ourselves on developing skin solutions that feel great and deliver results. Each of our products harnesses the beneficial properties of gold and other tried-and-tested skincare ingredients. If you find yourself in need of a skincare reset, consider this straightforward, skin-nourishing regimen:

Reset Your Skincare Routine

Start with the 24K Mousse Cleanser. Rich yet lightweight, this cleanser lifts dirt, makeup, and excess sebum without stripping the skin of its moisture. It is also formulated with Willow Bark Extract, which can benefit the skin by:

  • Reducing inflammation with natural salicylates
  • Gently exfoliating the skin to unveil a brighter and more even complexion
  • Tightening the skin and minimizing the appearance of pores
  • Calming redness and flare-ups

Follow it up with a moisturizer like OROGOLD’s 24K Deep Moisturizer. Nourishing and non-greasy, this moisturizer is formulated to replenish the skin’s oils and lock in hydration. Behind the lush texture is a curated list of hand-picked, effective ingredients like:

  • Centella Asiatica Extract, which is commonly used to moisturize the skin, improve wound healing, and calm inflammation
  • White Tea Extract, taken from the buds and leaves of tea. Like green tea, white teas are rich in skin-protecting antioxidants
  • Hydrolyzed Soy Fiber, an anti-aging, moisture-binding ingredient
  • Vitamins C and E, a skincare power couple that reduces hyperpigmentation and combats dullness while maintaining skin barrier health

Lastly, finish off your skincare routine with a layer of protective sunscreen. The importance of SPF has been a hotly debated topic within the beauty community for the past few years, but with the statistics showing an incontestable rise in skin disease, the verdict is clear: applying sunscreen daily is a necessity. 

Keep your skin safe against UV damage with Orogold’s new 24K Skin Tone SPF 30. Despite its sheer, skin-like texture, this broad-spectrum sunscreen is formulated with five UV filters that defend the skin against both UVA and UVB rays. It is also formulated with Aloe Vera and Green Tea extracts, allowing the product to repair and moisturize the skin as it protects against sun damage.

When You Need it, Ask for Help

Two friends talking

One last way to de-stress for your skin is to turn to others for help. It may sound simple, but in the thick of our problems, we can often forget to open up and let ourselves be vulnerable. No man is an island — and even the strongest people have their low points.

This year, allow yourself to reach out when you need help — whether it be from family, a friend, or mental health professional. 

Which of these methods will you be employing to de-stress for your skin? Whether it’s protecting your boundaries or committing to a little extra me-time with your skincare, remember to prioritize yourself and your peace — this year and beyond.

OROGOLD’s Holiday Gift Sets: Which One Should You Pick?

Holiday gift sets

Picking out holiday presents for your loved ones can be overwhelming. You have to first list down all the friends and family members you want to send something to. Then, you’ll need to brainstorm which gifts match each person’s interests and hobbies.

It gets even trickier when you’re buying skincare as a gift for loved ones who are into self-care and beauty. You need to know their preferences. Do they only use vegan products? Are they allergic to almond oil? You’ll need to know their skin type too. It’s also stressful to think about whether they’ll actually like the skincare products you pick out for them. After all, skincare can be such a personal thing.

Luckily, OROGOLD has a wide range of holiday gift sets that can help make shopping for skincare gifts way easier for you. There are holiday gift sets for everyone. It doesn’t matter whether you’re shopping for those who are only starting to get into skincare or mature women wanting to look a bit younger. We’ve got something for everybody.

Read on to check out five of our holiday gift sets. We’ll also advise which you should pick depending on who you’re planning to send a holiday gift to.

How Do You Pick Which Set to Gift Your Loved Ones?

Wrapped gift

Because the skincare market is saturated, it’s easy to fall in love with just about any skincare set. There are plenty on the market, so it won’t take long for one to catch your eye when you’re shopping for festive presents.

But you have to remember that what’s inside those products matters more than cute packaging or a prestigious brand name. Check the ingredient list to see if it contains skin-loving oils, emollients, and humectants to nourish the skin. The ingredients will tell you a lot about how effective a product is.

Another thing you can’t forget is that skincare isn’t a one-size-fits-all kind of thing. Just because a product is your favorite doesn’t mean that it’s going to be effective for your great aunt or little brother. Know their specific skin type to make the skincare set you’re getting more personal — not one you merely picked up on a whim.

Picking Skincare Products for Other People

Here’s a quick guide as to what you should look for to accommodate different types of skin:

  • For sensitive and acne-prone skin: Go for holiday gift sets with products that have soothing ingredients, like green tea and aloe vera extracts. If you have active breakouts, look for salicylic acid or willow bark extracts. These will heal your pimples from the inside out.
  • For dry, dull skin: This skin type needs heavy nourishment. Don’t be afraid to venture out into richer, thicker ingredients, such as coconut oil, shea butter, and avocado oil. Keep an eye out for exfoliating acids, like mandelic and lactic acids, to buff away dead and dull skin cells.
  • For aging skin: Anti-aging ingredients are key for this one. Look for hyaluronic acid and vitamin A to help minimize the signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and crow’s feet. These ingredients also plump up the skin to make it more volumized and smooth.

But doing too much research can be a hassle. To help out, here are five of OROGOLD’s holiday gift sets to consider:

For Skincare Beginners: The Basic Gift Set

Basic Set

If you have friends or younger siblings and cousins who want to get into skincare but don’t know much about building a routine themselves, get them the OROGOLD Basic Gift Set.

Every good skincare routine is founded on three key steps: cleansing, toning, and moisturizing. You can add in special serums and spot treatments of your choosing later on, but these three make the foundation for a good routine.

The Basic Gift Set includes a cleanser, toner, and cream. These are the most essential skincare steps any newbie should have in their arsenal of skincare products. By gifting someone this, you’re ridding them of the burden of creating their own routine from scratch — something super intimidating for beginners.

The creamy, luxurious 24K Mousse Cleanser creates a satisfying lather. However, it’s super gentle on the skin. It doesn’t strip it of natural oils that keep the skin hydrated. The cleanser is also formulated with willow bark extract. This ingredient helps calm breakouts and minimizes greasiness, so it’s perfect for oily, acne-prone skin. Willow bark extract is a natural source of salicin. This compound is known to exfoliate the skin gently and even refine larger pores for a more flawless complexion.

Next up in this set is the 24K Purifying Toner — another must for problematic skin. It’s infused with aloe vera and cucumber extracts, which soothe inflammation.

Lastly, this set contains the OROGOLD 24K Deep Moisturizer. This cream is light and doesn’t leave your skin greasy. However, it still nourishes the skin well. It’s formulated with shea butter and vitamin E, both of which help to soften and condition the skin to leave it smooth and plump.

For Those Who Live in Snowy Cities: The Body Gift Set

Body Gift Set from OROGOLD's holiday gift sets

Winter can be detrimental to the skin. Dry, cold weather coupled with indoor heat can dehydrate the skin. This leaves it flaky, dull, and rough to the touch. That’s why exfoliating and moisturizing are important parts of any winter skincare routine.

Using a scrub is pertinent for buffing away dead skin stuck to your epidermis, which is aggravated during the wintertime. Then, following up with a moisturizer or lotion is non-negotiable. You have to replenish your skin with intense moisture and protect it from the elements.

So, if you have loved ones living in colder cities and you know for sure that they are having trouble with dry, patchy, unhealthy skin, consider gifting them the OROGOLD Body Gift Set. This set contains a scrub, a hand and body cream, and body butter.

Unlike most other scrubs, the 24K Classic Body Scrub is made with super gentle ingredients. Corn kernel meal helps exfoliate dirt and grime off your skin. Meanwhile, hydrating ingredients, like soybean oil, cucumber extract, safflower seed oil, and Abyssinian oil, nourish and soften the skin.

Then we have the 24K Classic Hand & Body Cream. This moisturizing blend is formulated with chamomile extracts and argan oil. It helps hydrate your hands when you’re out and about, but you can use it for other parts of your body that need extra hydration in the winter too, like your elbows and knees.

Last but not least is the 24K Classic Body Butter. This one boasts rich ingredients, like sunflower seed oil and shea butter, to deeply nourish the skin. It’s perfect for anyone with super parched skin during the coldest season of the year.

For Moms, Aunts, and Older Sisters: The Deluxe Anti-Aging Gift Set

Deluxe Anti-Aging Gift Set

Your moms, aunts, and older sisters will surely love the OROGOLD Deluxe Anti-Aging Gift Set. This is a set curated with age-defying products to help make the skin look smoother and more youthful. It’s also a fab gift to yourself if you’re hitting your thirties soon and want to start using anti-aging products.

This set contains a cleanser, peel, serum, and cream — all of which are designed to minimize the signs of aging in your skin.

First, we have the 24K Vitamin C Cleanser. It helps soothe breakouts and brightens the skin while cleansing the face thoroughly.

The 24K Multi-Vitamin Deep Peeling + Mandelic Acid is a once-a-week exfoliator that sheds dead skin to make the skin glowier. Mandelic acid doesn’t just exfoliate the skin, but also speeds up cell turnover. It’ll give you brighter, younger, more rejuvenated skin.

Next up is the 24K Vitamin C Booster Facial Serum. Vitamin C is important in any anti-aging routine because it’s known to prevent the breakdown of collagen and elastin — the proteins that are in charge of keeping your skin elastic and smooth.

Top it all off with the 24K Multi-Vitamin Day Moisturizer and you’ve got a winning holiday gift set. This cream is rich in amino acids to strengthen aging skin and lock in moisture from the rest of your products.

For That Friend Who Has a Penchant for Luxury: The Golden Gift Set

Golden Gift Set

If you have friends who love the finer things in life, give them the OROGOLD Golden Gift Set. The serum, cleanser, SPF, and lip balm in this set are all infused with gold — OROGOLD’s signature ingredient.

Gold is known to reduce wrinkles and blemishes on the skin, giving your loved ones a more radiant glow. That makes it opulent but effective in any beauty regimen too.

In addition to the 24K Vitamin C Booster Serum and 24K Vitamin C Facial Cleanser, this set contains the 24K Skin Tone SPF 30. This sunscreen is lightweight and sheer, but still gives you great protection against harmful UV rays.

For juicy-looking lips, try the 24K Renewal Lip Balm. It’s made with castor oil, shea butter, sunflower seed wax, jojoba esters, mango butter, vitamin E, and other deeply moisturizing ingredients.

For Anyone Who Needs Nourishment and Skin Repair: The Rejuvenating Gift Set

Rejuvenating Gift Set

Lastly, we have the OROGOLD Rejuvenating Gift Set, which is perfect for anyone needing to wake up and hydrate dull, tired skin. You can gift this to your workaholic buddies who need some freshening up, skincare-wise. It contains the 24K Deep Moisturizer and two additional products.

The first is the 24K Overnight Cream, a night cream infused with intensely nourishing oils, such as jojoba seed oil, shea butter, sweet almond oil, and more. It also has vitamin A and green tea leaf extract for more anti-aging properties.

Then we have the 24K Anti-Aging Eye Serum. This serum is formulated with vitamin C for brightness and palmitoyl oligopeptide for skin strength. The latter is a peptide known for boosting collagen production, making your skin bouncier, glowier, and healthier overall.

Skincare Makes the Perfect Gift for the Holidays

When Christmas is days away and you still don’t know which gifts to get for your best friends and loved ones, one of the places people often run to is the beauty aisle at their local department store. From perfumes to makeup, beauty essentials make for awesome holiday presents, especially for women.

But if you don’t want anything too flashy but still need a feel of lavishness for your present, skincare is the way to go. It’s practical, necessary, and everyone needs it.

Many people think giving skincare as gifts can be a bit offensive. For example, giving anti-aging creams to someone might be misconstrued as telling them that they’re getting old and need to care for their skin better. In the same way, giving brightening products to someone who is unbothered by their acne scars can be taken the wrong way.

But don’t let those possibilities deter you from giving skincare holiday gift sets. If you know it’s something your friend or relative will like, buy it for them. Giving skincare as a gift is also a way to share with others something that you personally love and want them to discover for themselves.

However, remember that you have to choose recipients who will for sure appreciate skincare goodies. And you must also personalize your selection of holiday gift sets according to what your loved ones need and will enjoy best.

Conclusion

So, if you want to give your loved ones a leg up with their skincare routine, check out the OROGOLD holiday gift sets. You can choose between versatile collections, whether you want to help your friends or relatives solve issues like dehydration, wrinkles, or dull skin.

Holiday skincare shopping is supposed to be fun and simple, never difficult and confusing. Make things a little bit easier for yourself by getting one of these holiday gift sets instead of trying to shop for multiple products on your own. Not only will it be hassle-free for you, but it will also provide a cohesive purpose in your loved ones’ beauty regimen.

Give them the gift of beauty, luxury, and self-confidence all in one with any of the OROGOLD holiday gift sets above. Your loved ones (and their healthy, hydrated skin) will thank you!

11 New Year’s Resolutions for Your Skin: Part 2

Woman applying face mask - New Year’s Resolutions for Your Skin

With the new year comes the motivation for a fresh start. It’s the perfect time to change your ways and start doing things differently. This can be applied to just about every aspect of your life – chances are you’ve made resolutions in the past that have related to eating healthier or exercising more.

Well, now’s the time to turn your attention to your skin.

We already covered a few new year’s resolutions for your skin in our previous blog post, but, for those of you who really want to take things to the next level, stick with us at OROGOLD as we share a few more:

Try Something New

OROGOLD skincare for fall

Resolutions often revolve around trying something new. So, in addition to signing yourself up for that bungee jumping or plane-flying experience, stick this one on your list of new year’s resolutions for your skin too.

We always stress the importance of keeping things consistent when it comes to your skin. However, this doesn’t mean that you should be afraid of trying new things. Whether this may be a new ingredient or a new type of product, you could end up discovering something that’s capable of truly transforming your skin.

Have You Tried…?

If you’d like to elevate your skincare routine, consider a skincare device. Cleansing brushes are the easiest way to start. Our 24K Deep Facial Brush Set couldn’t be simpler to use, but it’ll give you such a thorough cleanse. Another favorite is the Torche V2+ Amber Light. It’s designed to reduce the appearance of dark spots and sun damage – regular use will have you glowing!

Treat Yourself

The Cleopatra Nano Regimen is a good new year's resolutions for your skin

You probably enjoy a treat once in a while. Well, so does your skin!

Here at OROGOLD, we produce a number of luxury products, but if you truly want to indulge, here’s what we’d recommend:

Using the potent powers of gold, the 24K Cleopatra Nano Regimen will give you that smooth and supple skin you’ve been seeking. You’ll feel like royalty after using this collection. 

This set consists of:

  • 24K Cleopatra Nano Serum
  • 24K Cleopatra Nano Silk Cream
  • 24K Cleopatra Gold Sheets

The 24K Cleopatra Nano Regimen should be used once a month, meaning that one set will last you a while!

Commit to SPF

OROGOLD SPF moisturizer

We know, it’s not always easy to make a commitment. Especially when you’re committing to a product that often leaves your face feeling greasy and looking ghostly.

However, it’s important to acknowledge the damage that UV rays can cause to your skin. It’s not a myth that they’re responsible for 80% of facial aging – this really is true. Wrinkles, dark spots, sagging skin, uneven texture, not to mention skin cancer – this can all be avoided with the use of SPF.

So, one of your new year’s resolutions for your skin needs to be all about sun protection. Hate wearing sunscreen? That’s only because you haven’t found the right one yet…

The OROGOLD 24K Skin Tone SPF 30

There are so many different sunscreen products out there, so what makes our 24K Skin Tone SPF 30 special?

To start with, it’s beautifully sheer. It won’t leave a white cast on your skin in the way that so many other sunscreens do. It’s also lightweight. Wear it on its own or layer it under makeup – it’s so versatile.

As you can tell from its name, it contains SPF 30. Unless you have super-sensitive skin, this is all you need, so long as you regularly reapply it.

And, once you check out the ingredient list, you’ll realize how much you want to reapply this cream. Gold features front and center, as do vitamins A and E. You’ll also find skin-soothing botanical extracts in this blend, from green tea to aloe vera. These calming ingredients are why this cream feels so nourishing as soon as it hits your skin.

Experiment with Multi-Masking

Woman multi-masking

Haven’t heard of the multi-masking trend yet? It’s one that can be found all over Instagram – influencers with multiple face masks slathered all over their face, in true patchwork fashion.

While there’s no denying that this beauty trend makes for a fun selfie op, there really is some value to it…

If you’re dealing with different skin concerns on different parts of your face, then multi-masking is worth looking into. Let us give you an example:

Imagine you have fine lines around your eyes, an oily, acne-prone t-zone, and dry patches on your cheeks. There isn’t a single face mask out there that’s capable of dealing with all of those problems in one go. We’re good, but no one’s that good!

This is where multi-masking has been a game-changer. It involves targeting each of those problem areas with a carefully-chosen face mask. You would apply an anti-aging mask to the skin around your eyes, a sebum-absorbing clay mask onto your t-zone, and a hydrating mask on your cheeks.

How to Choose Face Masks for Multi-Masking

The secret to multi-masking success comes from choosing the right masks to use. Ideally, the masks that you apply should be designed to remain on the skin for similar lengths of time. This allows you to wash everything off together. Alternatively, you could always apply one, wait for the necessary amount of time and then apply the other, before washing them off together.

Most people choose to multi-mask with clay and cream masks. However, you can do this with sheet masks too – you’ll just need to layer your sheet mask over whichever mask you’ve applied first. Keep in mind that your first mask may block some of the sheet mask’s ingredients from penetrating your skin in that area.

Some of our favorite OROGOLD face masks for multi-masking are:

Pay Attention to Your Body

Woman applying body scrub - New Year’s Resolutions for Your Skin

It’s easy to focus all of your new year’s resolutions for your skin on your face, but your body needs some attention too!

We’ve already talked about the neck, but now let’s discuss everything else. From your stomach to your legs to your back, your body may not be on display as much as your face is, but this doesn’t mean that it isn’t vulnerable to all of the same issues. Whether it may be dryness, acne, wrinkles, or anything else, the right skincare will help to keep your body looking its best.

How to Care for the Skin on Your Body

For starters, you should be cleansing your body regularly, just like you do your face. Exfoliation is also important for the body – the 24K Classic Body Scrub is perfect for this.

Again, just like with your face, keeping the skin on your body hydrated is a must. However, it’s worth noting that the skin on the body is thinner than that on the face. This means that all of your moisturizers designed for delicate facial skin won’t be very effective when used on your body.

Instead, go for a richer and thicker formula to keep your body moisturized and nourished. The 24K Classic Body Butter is a great choice. It’s filled with hydrating plant extracts, from shea butter to marigold and cucumber extract.

Focus on Your Lips

Lip scrub - New Year’s Resolutions for Your Skin

If you struggle to keep your lips kissably soft over the winter months, then make focusing on your lips one of your new year’s resolutions for your skin. Just a small amount of attention will eliminate dryness and flakiness while giving your skin a plumpness that you’ve never seen before.

As an added bonus, any lip makeup products that you apply will also look better and last for longer.

Lip Care

So, what does lip care actually entail?

Well, it’s pretty simple. To start with, OROGOLD recommends regularly exfoliating your lips. This will get rid of any dead skin cell buildup, leaving your lips so much smoother.

There are a few ways in which you can exfoliate your lips. The easiest is with a spare toothbrush. Alternatively, you could also whip up your own sugar-based lip scrub in your kitchen.

A good moisturizer is always a must, and this applies to your lips too. That’s exactly why we created the 24K Renewal Lip Balm. This formula is a must for those who favor natural skincare ingredients. We’ve infused this balm with several, and they’re all loved for their hydrating properties. You’ll find avocado, moringa, mango, baobab, mimosa, shea, and so much more in this blend.

Summary

So, which of these new year’s resolutions for your skin are you going to be attempting to stick to? Our advice? Pick them all! They’ll give your skin the best possible start to the year and will keep you glowing throughout 2022.

Invest in Gold

Here at OROGOLD, we’re obsessed with gold. You’ll find 24K gold in every single one of our products.

Why?

Well, not only does this ingredient scream luxury (and your skin deserves nothing but the best), but gold also happens to be an incredible skincare multi-tasker. It soothes, brightens, protects, and hydrates – everything that you could want from your skincare products.

Gold has always been synonymous with beauty, ever since the early ages. Gold has also long been regarded as a symbol of opulence.

As long as history has been written, historians have claimed that Cleopatra wore a gold mask every night to enhance her enchanting beauty. Gold salves were used in ancient Rome to treat a range of skin ailments. When it comes to ancient Chinese medicine, gold was seen as the secret to eternal youth, and the queen of the Ch’ing dynasty was no exception.

Gold has even been proven to have numerous healing and restorative characteristics for the body and skin.

So, if you haven’t given gold-infused skincare a try yet, now is the time. Place this one at the top of your list of new year’s resolutions for your skin.

How to Choose Gold-Infused Skincare

As you’ll find with OROGOLD products, gold works well in just about every formula. However, if you really want to make the most of this ingredient, pick a gold-infused product designed to remain on your skin for an extended amount of time.

The 24K Overnight Cream is one example. The gold will be able to slowly make its way into your skin while you sleep at night. Alternatively, if serums are more your thing, give the 24K Nano Night Recovery a try.

Focus on Boosting Collagen Production

Collagen 2

Is having a youthful complexion part of your New Year’s resolutions for your skin? If so, there’s a protein that you need to focus on; collagen.

As we grow older, our skin’s ability to produce collagen and elastin decreases. However, your skin’s flexibility and plumpness are maintained by collagen and elastin, which function together. As a result, wrinkles and sagginess soon develop.

There are a few ways to stimulate collagen production in your skin. Taking collagen supplements is one thing, but you can also topically apply collagen-stimulating products for an added boost!

Vitamin C is a key component when building your skin’s bounce. Dermatologists and aestheticians normally recommend a topical vitamin C antioxidant serum when it comes to collagen formation. Vitamin C enhances collagen production and protects against damage that may accelerate collagen breakdown. It can also improve skin tone and reduce hyperpigmentation, making it an excellent multi-tasker.

Additionally, glycolic acid is a hydroxy acid that can be used with vitamin C. Glycolic acid generates new collagen by establishing a wound-healing response. On top of all that, it works wonders for even the most obstinate varieties of pimples. So, for all of you acne-prone guys and gals, this might be an ingredient worth exploring.

Finally, retinoic acid can also help. Retinol is the active form of vitamin A in the body and the most important retinoic acid. This ingredient enhances cell turnover, produces collagen, improves skin pigmentation, moisturizes, and minimizes acne. In layman terms, retinoic acid can bind with any skin cell receptor site and instruct it to behave as if it were younger skin. 

Skincare Products for Boosting Collagen Production

Here at OROGOLD, we fully understand the importance of collagen. That’s why we’ve dedicated an entire collection to formulas that encourage the production of this anti-aging protein. Whether you pick just one product or splurge on them all, the OROGOLD 24K Collagen Collection is what you need!

Show Your Neck Some Love

Woman applying neck cream

Although neck wrinkles are not uncommon, some people are surprised at how quickly they appear. It’s easy to neglect the neck, especially in the winter months when it’s hidden away beneath multiple layers. As a result, turkey neck appears before you know it.

But don’t worry, there are simple solutions to get around this.

The skin on your neck is remarkably similar to that on the face. Just like your face, your neck’s flexibility and tone deteriorate with time and environmental factors, including pollution and UV light. Your skin will begin to droop as your collagen production declines.

Neck skin also experiences more wear and tear than the skin on the face. Think about the number of times your neck is bent downwards while you look at a device. In fact, you’re probably even sitting like that right now. This exacerbates necklines and wrinkles in a big way. It has become such a common problem that experts have given it an official name; tech neck.

Unless you want to be dealing with deep wrinkles and sagging skin on your neck, make this one of your new year’s resolutions for your skin.

Caring for the Skin on Your Neck

For starters, you should be cleansing it each day, just like you do your face. In fact, your entire facial skincare routine should be extended down towards your neck. You should also give neck exercises a try. Incorporate these, as well as face yoga, into your daily skincare routine to strengthen and tone the muscles in your neck.

However, this is often not enough, which is why we also recommend the OROGOLD 24K Neck Duo Treatment. This two-step system starts with essence and ends with cream. Not only will it moisturize and plump up the skin cells on your neck, but it’ll also target wrinkles and dark spots.

The treatment mentioned above can be used daily. However, it would also be a good idea to indulge in a more intensive treatment once a week. This is where the 24K Neck Lifting & Chest Firming Mask comes in. These sheet masks are designed for the neck and chest area. They’re perfectly shaped to make them easy to use, and they’re infused with a potent cocktail of hydrating and skin tightening extracts.

Amp Up Your Anti-Aging Skincare Routine with DMAE

OROGOLD face mask from DMAE Collection

DMAE? What’s that? Well, here’s the tea. Lotion, creams, and other cosmetic goods may sometimes include DMAE (dimethylethanolamine, dimethylaminoethanol).

DMAE has a few skin benefits, one of which is that it is a potent anti-aging ingredient. For example, according to a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Dermatology, DMAE can help improve skin firmness and reduce skin inflammation. In addition, DMAE can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes.

In a nutshell, DMAE’s tightening and firming actions allow it to combat the symptoms of aging skin. It also provides added hydration to your skin and improves dark spots, evening out your skin tone.

If you are concerned about the loss of skin suppleness, this ingredient is highly recommended, making it a must-add to your list of New Year’s resolutions for your skin.

DMAE-Infused Skincare

Turn your attention to the 24K DMAE Collection from OROGOLD.

This set consists of:

  • Instant Stretching Cream
  • Instant Stretching Mask
  • 24K DMAE Bodylift Cream

Here’s how to incorporate it into your skincare routine:

Instant Stretching Cream

You can use this as a part of your morning ritual. Just slather it onto freshly cleansed skin and with constant use, you’ll be able to see your skin look firmer and more lifted!

Instant Stretching Mask

Cleanse your face thoroughly before using this product for the first time. Then, apply a generous amount to your face and neck. Begin at the upper eyelids and work your way down to the neck.

Wait 15 minutes after you’ve finished applying the mask before rinsing it off.

This mask contains bentonite clay, which helps to absorb excess oil and sebum out of your pores.

24K DMAE Bodylift Cream

Massage in long, circular motions onto damp or dry skin.

This New Year, It’s Time to Try Out Cannabis Skincare

OROGOLD Cannabis Mask

CBD, a cannabinoid found in cannabis, is being touted as a powerful skin soother as more countries legalize the drug for medical use.

Eczema, rashes, dry skin, and acne can all benefit from cannabinoids’ anti-inflammatory properties. For people with ‘normal’ skin types, they’re also excellent moisturizers.

“But wait, what if I get high?”

CBD is non-psychoactive, so you don’t have to worry about getting high when you apply it. THC, a cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant, is another element pharmaceutical companies are interested in.

Benefits of Cannabis Skincare

  • It can neutralize free radical damage and protect the skin from deterioration and aging
  • The redness, discomfort, and swelling that are linked with inflammatory acne may be reduced
  • CBD can help alleviate the symptoms of eczema and other chronic skin disorders, such as psoriasis and dermatitis
  • Prevents dehydration and dryness
  • CBD can help reduce the inflammation associated with breakouts and, as a result of its oil control, may lessen breakouts overall
  • Lower inflammation may help alleviate the symptoms of rosacea flare-ups
  • Because CBD is an effective adaptogen, it may work to reduce the stress-induced release of hormones and other chemicals in the body (ie. kinase, nitric oxide, and cortisol)

If you’re convinced, check out OROGOLD’s Cannabis Golden Leaf Collection. The collection consists of a mask, serum, and moisturizer, so this set has got you covered. 

Summary

At OROGOLD, we have a massive collection of skincare products that you can incorporate into your New Year’s resolutions for your skin. So, to narrow down your choices, just listen to what your skin needs and your skin will thank you.

Whatever problem your skin is having, there’s always an OROGOLD product to help. The products listed above will not only address your most pressing skin concerns, but they will also allow you to sit back, relax, and pamper your skin with a luxurious treatment at home, just in time for the New Year.

A Nourishing Winter Skincare Routine for Dry Skin

Woman doing winter skincare routine

If you happen to live in a country with four seasons, navigating the puzzling world of beauty can prove to be difficult. Each seasonal shift marks the recalibration of your skincare routine. Needless to say, having to change up your rotation every few months may leave you feeling like you’re back at square one. But considering how much temperature, humidity, and seasonal factors can affect the condition of your skin, these skincare shifts are often worth it.

This is especially true when it comes to building a winter skincare routine. Winter is easily one of the harshest seasons, and the damage it deals can show through almost immediately for those with dry skin types. 

At OROGOLD, we strive to bring innovative solutions to target specific skin problems — including winter-induced dryness, flaking, and sensitivity. Ahead, we break down the ultimate winter skincare routine for dry skin:

Start with the 24K Mousse Cleanser

OROGOLD toner

Cleansing is one of the ineradicable pillars of a good skincare routine. No matter how great someone’s genes, or how seldom their skin is exposed to the outside world, every skincare regimen is rooted in a good cleanser.

Through the years, cleansers have evolved to take on a variety of different formulations and consistencies. These days, when you shop for a cleanser, there are various factors to consider: your skin type, the season, and your preferred richness are just a few. Some of the most popular cleansers today include:

  • Oil cleansers, which usually take the form of liquid oil or soluble balm. These cleaners are ideal for breaking down makeup and sunscreen.
  • Gel cleansers, which are typically preferred by oily and acne-prone skin types due to their lightweight consistency.
  • Milk cleansers, which are a great match for those with combination or slightly dry skin types. These are more hydrating than gel cleansers, but not quite as thick as mousse cleansers.
  • Mousse cleansers, which are ideal for dry skin types or cold climates.

In the chilly winter months, opt for a product like OROGOLD’s 24K Mousse Cleanser to kick off your skincare routine. This cleanser is formulated with Willow Bark Extract, which is an exfoliating, calming, oil-reducing, and moisture-locking multitasker of an ingredient. It is also gentle enough to work with sensitive skin, making it a great choice for those who struggle with winter-induced irritation. 

To use, dispense a small amount of product onto your palm and massage it into your face gently. As you do this, the product should form a rich, creamy lather. Rinse the product off with cool water. Repeat twice daily to keep your skin clean and moisturized!

Brighten Up with the 24K Cryogenic Diamond Gommage

Diamond Gommage

If you haven’t heard the term “gommage” in the past, let us catch you up. Gommage is a French exfoliation technique that involves using enzymes to gently slough away dead skin to stimulate the growth of new cells. 

Here at OROGOLD, we introduce the concept of gommage through our very own 24K Cryogenic Diamond Gommage. A great addition to any winter skincare routine, this product is not just an exfoliator. It contains an interesting blend of ingredients that give it anti-aging, soothing, and moisturizing benefits. Let’s talk about each.

Peptides

When you dive into the 24K Cryogenic Diamond Gommage’s ingredient list, you’ll encounter several scientific names. Among them are Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1 and Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, a pair of amino acid peptides.

These peptides are a dynamic duo in the skincare realm. Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1 stimulates collagen production, which results in a reduction of wrinkles. Meanwhile, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 slows the production of a molecule called Interleukin-6 or IL-6. This molecule promotes inflammation, so, by reducing it, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 can lessen irritation and preserve a youthful glow. As impressive as these peptides are individual, they’re even better when they come together to form anti-aging powerhouse Matrixyl 3000.

Botanical Extracts

The 24K Cryogenic Diamond Gommage also harnesses the soothing benefits of fruit and plant extracts. Some of these are Cucumber Fruit Extract, Green Tea Extract, Butcher’s Broom Root Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, and Marigold Extract — all of which can calm down inflamed or irritated skin.

In terms of moisturizing, this product does a good job of replenishing moisture that may be lost through cleansing or exfoliation. One of the interesting humectants in its formula is Panthenol, otherwise known as Pro-Vitamin B5. It attracts water and locks it into the skin while fortifying the skin barrier.

To use, apply a pea-sized amount of product onto your skin. Gently massage it in circular motions until it is fully absorbed.

Hydrate and Nourish with the 24K Rose Gold Age Glow Duo

Rose Gold Age Glow Duo for winter skincare routine

There’s no shame in taking time for a little extra skin pampering, especially in the chill of the winter months. If there’s any time of year for you to pay more attention to your skin, it’s the wintertime.

OROGOLD’s 24K Rose Gold Age Glow Duo encourages you to do just that. A two-step treatment system, this anti-aging duo promotes radiance and moisture — two things that can be especially hard to achieve in cold and dry weather. Both the 24K Rose Gold Multi-Vital Liquid Powder and 24K Rose Gold Enriching Serum contain Rosa Canina Seed Extract, which comes from Rosehip Seeds. Rosehip is used most commonly in its oil form and has gained popularity for its hydrating, moisturizing, and collagen-boosting abilities.

Each step in the Glow Duo pairs Rosehip Seed Extract with other nourishing ingredients. 

The 24K Rose Gold Multi-Vital Liquid Powder, for instance, contains Resveratrol and Hyaluronic Acid. Resveratrol is a chemical primarily found in red grapes and is used to combat visible signs of aging. Hyaluronic Acid, on the other hand, is a moisture-retaining substance that holds over one thousand times its weight in water. Because of its powerful hydrating abilities, it has quickly been propelled to skincare fame.

The second step in the glow duo is the 24K Rose Gold Enriching Serum. The following ingredients make up the skin-boosting cocktail within its microcapsules:

  • Caviar Extract
  • Aloe Vera
  • Seaweed Extract

To incorporate the 24K Rose Gold Age Glow Duo into your winter skincare routine, dispense the 24K Rose Gold Multi-Vital Liquid Powder into your palm. Carefully apply the powder onto your face, massaging it into your skin until the powder turns into a liquid. Thereafter, apply one or two pumps of the 24K Rose Gold Enriching Serum to finish.

Lock in Moisture with the 24K Kelp Caviar Micro-Bead Cream

Moisturizer for a winter skincare routine

End your winter skincare routine on a luxurious note with the 24K Kelp Caviar Micro-Bead Cream. A deeply moisturizing cream, this product counters dryness and flaking with a carefully selected blend of ingredients.

Kelp

The core of this cream is Laminaria Japonica Extract, more commonly known as Kelp or Seaweed Extract, which benefits the skin by:

  • Reducing lines and wrinkles. Seaweed Extract is a potent source of antioxidants and amino acids, which can help promote collagen production. The result? Less visible wrinkles, which are usually exacerbated by frosty weather.
  • Brightening and exfoliating the skin. By doing away with dead skin cells, Kelp does not just make way for smoother skin — it lessens hyperpigmentation and dullness, too. The micro-beads in this cream also help to gently exfoliate the skin’s surface.
  • Calming hypersensitivity. Seaweed Extract contains Zinc and Magnesium, two minerals that can soothe inflammation.

Caviar

This product also contains an interesting substance: Caviar Extract. While caviar — which, simply put, is unfertilized fish eggs — might not be the kind of ingredient you’d expect to see in your tub of moisturizer, it has surprisingly earned itself a spot in the world of skincare. 

When used topically in skincare, Caviar Extract does the following:

  • Smoothens texture with Omega-3 and amino acids.
  • Moisturizes deeply with Omega-3.
  • Keeps elastin in check, thanks to its rich antioxidant content. This results in plump, younger-looking skin.
  • Reduces redness and irritation.

These benefits make Caviar Extract a great match for those with mature or aging skin. It is important to note, however, that due to the origins of the Caviar Extract, it should not be used by those with a fish allergy.

Ready to add the 24K Kelp Caviar Micro-Bead Cream to your winter skincare routine? Here is how to do just that:

After cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing, apply a coin-sized amount of product onto your face and neck. Massage it into your skin until the product is fully absorbed.

Treat Yourself with the Torché V2+ Amber Light

Torche Amber

As a treat throughout the week, why not incorporate a beauty device into your winter skincare routine? At OROGOLD, we use Jelessi devices to boost the efficacy of our skincare solutions. In particular, the Jelessi Torché V2+ Amber Light incorporates innovative Light Emitting Diode (LED) therapy to visibly improve acne, age spots, and wrinkles.

Most LED therapy devices use the classic red or blue light frequencies to treat the skin. Both of these frequencies have distinct skin benefits. Red light, otherwise called infrared, treats issues on the skin surface by improving circulation and dialing down inflammation. On the other hand, antimicrobial blue light diminishes the bacteria that tends to collect in the sebaceous glands and pores. This, in turn, leads to fewer breakouts.

What makes the Torché V2+ Amber Light special? This tool takes LED therapy beyond just red and blue frequencies. Stepping up the DIY beauty game, this device introduces amber light, a frequency that targets spots and redness. If that’s not enough, here’s a winter-appropriate bonus: the Torché V2+ Amber Light comes with a heat setting. Similar to spa treatments, heat can be used to warm up the skin, depuff the face, and promote lymphatic drainage for a more sculpted appearance. 

During an otherwise cold and dark winter, let this nifty device bring the light in. To use the Torché V2+ Amber Light, switch on the device and lightly press it against your skin for three to five minutes. Work across your face in small areas to ensure maximum efficacy. Do this anytime between one to five times every week.

Why Choose OROGOLD?

Gold products skin care from OROGOLD

You might be wondering, what exactly sets Orogold apart from the skincare brands on display on your shelf? The answer lies in our ingredient lists, where gold is front and center.

How many times have you seen gold listed in a product’s ingredients? The chances most likely range from slim to none. While gold may seem like an uncommon addition to skincare, we at OROGOLD have built a premium brand that spotlights its promising skin-loving properties, such as:

  • Protecting the skin by neutralizing free radicals. Free radicals are essentially unstable atoms that can cause skin damage. Because gold is rich in antioxidants, it can minimize signs of aging and skin fatigue.
  • Battling inflammation. Studies show that colloidal gold has been used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, which is an inflammatory ailment.
  • Improving moisture levels. Because gold is a mineral and a metal, it can stimulate the skin. This boosts blood circulation, and, in turn, skin moisture.
  • Healing the skin. Ancient China traces one of the early advanced applications of gold to the Ming Dynasty. At the time, physicians used gold to diminish toxins and treat conditions like ulcers and smallpox. 

While gold has multiple skin benefits, we go the extra mile with a pool of tried and tested skincare ingredients. These ingredients work together with gold to deliver even more effective results. Some classic OROGOLD ingredients are:

Do You Really Need to Change Up Your Skincare for Fall?

Skincare for fall

With summer officially over and the fall season upon us, you might be thinking that you probably don’t need to adjust your skincare for the new season. And then you realize that the summer sun, dips in the pool, and those long sweaty days have left you with some serious signs of sun-damaged skin!

A quick glance in your mirror can confirm whether you need to change up your skincare for fall. Does your reflection reveal a blotchy, uneven complexion? Are there new fine lines and wrinkles forming on your skin? Do you have skin that looks dry and dull-looking? Do you have any dark spots?

Be assured that with the fabulous products we’ve developed here at OROGOLD, you can make any necessary changes to your skincare routine to ensure a radiant glow throughout the colder months.

What are these changes that you should be making? Stick with OROGOLD – you’re about to find out!

Heal Post-Summer Inflammation with 24K Gold

Woman using gold eye masks

Used in ancient Rome as a salve for healing wounds, and widely regarded in traditional Chinese medicine as the skin’s, “key to youth,” the properties of gold have both healing and anti-aging benefits.

At OROGOLD, we have chosen to embrace the use of gold as well. We have infused 24K gold into all of our products, enabling you to reap the rewards of this precious mineral and all of its natural restorative powers! With the use of our gold-infused products, you’ll achieve noticeable improvements in your post-summer skin while protecting yourself from dry, dehydrated skin this fall as the weather changes.

Perhaps best of all during this cooler time of year, the gold in our products works as a powerful anti-inflammatory, soothing your skin and healing any inflammation.

Let’s take a closer look at how gold can work wonders for your complexion this fall.

Skin Benefits of Gold:

  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Increases skin’s elasticity
  • Evens skin tone
  • Slows the loss of collagen
  • Thoroughly hydrates skin

With so many benefits for your skin, you’ll want to incorporate products containing gold into your skincare for fall as soon as possible.

Use a Gentle Cleanser

24K Cleanser

Does your skin look and feel dry and dehydrated? Do you feel like your skin looks dull these days?

Well, you’re in good company! Dull, dehydrated skin is a common skincare concern during the autumn months. Remember that as the seasons change, the state of your skin does as well. With the drop in temperatures also comes a drop in the level of humidity in the air. And air lacking humidity is dry air.

To steer clear of sporting a dehydrated, dry, and aging complexion as the leaves fall in the backdrop of your selfies, you’ll want to be sure to seek out a cleanser that allows your skin to retain its protective natural oils.

We recommend that you incorporate a high-quality cleanser into your skincare for fall to alleviate these concerns. Treat your skin with a gentle, non-abrasive cleanser, such as our 24K Vitamin C Facial Cleanser.

A mild cleanser with a soft, foaming action, our 24K Vitamin C Cleanser has the ingredients your skin needs to maintain a healthy balance this fall. Our cleanser works to ever-so-gently rid your skin of dulling buildup and accumulated gunk, without fully stripping your skin of its vital natural oils.

We’ve formulated this cleanser with powerhouse ingredients; 24K Gold, Vitamin C, and Aloe Vera.

We recommend using our 24K Purifying Toner in tandem with our 24K Vitamin C Cleanser for the most gorgeous, hydrated skin this season!

Use Vitamin C On Your Skin This Fall

Vitamin C serum

Fall is a great time to use products containing Vitamin C. We’ve already mentioned our vitamin C-infused cleanser, but let’s take a closer look at this skincare superstar…

Vitamin C is a fabulous multi-tasking ingredient that works wonders during the cooler seasons. Applying products containing Vitamin C to your skin helps to even out dark, uneven spots on your skin and boosts your skin’s collagen production.

Plus, Vitamin C aids your skin in fighting off any potential damage from UV rays. With an increase in collagen production and a reduction of unwanted dark spots, you can count on heading into the fall season with a brightened, more youthful complexion when using products containing Vitamin C.

Here at OROGOLD, we have a recommendation for a fabulous product containing all the goodness and power of Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and a plethora of other antioxidants and naturally sourced ingredients.

Our Vitamin C Booster Facial Serum is the product you’ll want in your arsenal this fall.

Skin Benefits of Vitamin C:

  • Boosts collagen production
  • Reduces hyperpigmentation
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles
  • Fades acne scarring
  • Brightens skin
  • Anti-aging benefits
  • Balances skin
  • Repairs damaged skin

With our Vitamin C Booster Facial Serum, Vitamins A, C, Wheatgerm Oil, and other ingredients work in harmony to deliver targeted, noticeable results to your complexion during the cooler months.

Strengthen Your Skin’s Barrier 

Woman applying face cream

Throughout the day, your skin is left vulnerable.

UV rays wreak havoc on your skin and can penetrate right through a damaged skin barrier. With a weakened skin barrier, these rays will destroy the protein fibers that maintain a tight, and youthfully taut, complexion.

And don’t let the distractions of the pumpkin patch fool you. While the sun may not be shining as warmly upon your face as during the spring and summer, it will cause noticeable changes to your skin if you have a weak skin barrier. The kind of changes you don’t want to see in your reflection.

Let’s not forget about environmental pollutants either. Don’t let the cooler weather and fresh breezes let you lower your guard against environmental pollutants. Harmful pollutants in our environment can, and do, damage your skin’s protective barrier while you go about your day.

And so we recommend taking one more important step to prepare your skin in the morning prior to leaving your home. You can adequately strengthen your skin’s barrier this fall by using a high-quality, multi-talented day cream.

The product you’ll want to have in your skincare for fall arsenal is our 24K Multi-Vitamin Day Moisturizer + Amino Acid. Infused with a combination of highly researched ingredients, this cream battles environmental pollutants and harmful UV rays, protecting your skin all day long.

This is a smooth, non-greasy day cream that we have formulated with powerful ingredients that help maintain your skin’s integrity. Working in harmony, they help build a strong outer layer, which acts as a barrier to what lies beyond your front door.

Curious what our 24K Multi-Vitamin Day Moisturizer + Amino Acid can do for you?

Benefits of Using a Multi-Vitamin Moisturizer:

  • Helps your skin maintain its moisture, improving elasticity
  • Smooths skin, restoring its appearance and texture
  • Delivers lush hydration
  • Diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Skin looks less sallow
  • Brightens complexion

Want to boost your results? Use our 24K Multi-Vitamin Day Moisturizer + Amino Acid in tandem with our 24K Multi-Vitamin Night Nourishment + Retinol.

Keep Your Skin Protected By Using SPF

Have you been doing a double-take after seeing your skin in your mirror? The sun is likely the culprit.

Using an SPF year-round is an absolute must. For this essential, we suggest fortifying your regimen with a luxurious broad-spectrum sunscreen such as our 24K Skin Tone SPF 30.  

Our lightweight, non-greasy formula has all the SPF you need to keep your skin protected this fall. We’ve also specially formulated this product to hydrate your skin.

You can count on this cream for broad-spectrum protection. The ingredients in this cream prevent damage to your vulnerable complexion from both UVA and UVB rays.

Use a Thicker Moisturizer 

OROGOLD night cream - skincare for fall

At night, your skin is free from exposure to harmful sun damage, the dry fall air, or any potential damage from potential environmental stressors. This makes evenings the perfect time to treat your skin with a rich, thick moisturizer. Using a thicker moisturizer than you may have used during the spring and summer months will help to restore the appearance of your skin while providing essential nourishment.

For this challenge, we know our 24K Multi-Vitamin Night Nourishment + Retinol won’t let you down!

Benefits of Using the 24K Multi-Vitamin Night Nourishment + Retinol:

  • Smoothes fine lines and wrinkles
  • Soothes skin

Formulated with Green Tea Extract and Vitamin E, it provides stunning improvements to your complexion.

For optimal results, use in combination with the 24K Multi-Vitamin Day Moisturizer + Amino Acid, which was featured above.

In Conclusion

As the seasons change, it’s important to change your skincare for fall just as you would your wardrobe. We hope that the information we’ve given you today empowers you to treat yourself, and your complexion, to some of the luxurious, high-quality products we’ve discussed.

The Ultimate Guide to OROGOLD Devices: Jelessi & Torchē

Neck Wand

For many of us, finding a solid, trustworthy beauty regimen is a years-long process of trial and error. It’s impossible to put a number on the amount of time a person can spend trying to understand their skin and the products that will whip it into its best condition. After all, finally finding a skincare routine that works is all sorts of rewarding. However, the pursuit of beauty should not stop there…

Beauty Meets Technology

Woman having LED treatment

Let’s talk about beauty devices. There is an abundance of skin-clearing, texture-refining, spot-targeting technology out there. Some facial tools, such as massagers and gua shas, take a simpler form and rely on manual maneuvering. Meanwhile, specialized tools like LED wands and mini radiofrequency machines, build off of technological advancements.

Once upon a time, these devices were reserved only for professionals at spas and dermatology clinics. However, that notion has very quickly changed in the past few years.

A report by P&S Intelligence valued the global market for at-home beauty devices at $9,571.6 million last year. This number, while already impressive, is expected to skyrocket even further within the next decade. P&S Intelligence predicts that the home-use beauty device market will reach up to $89.535.1 million in value by 2030.

There are a few reasons behind this noticeable shift towards do-it-yourself, at-home beauty…

The Rise in Popularity of At-Home Beauty

  • Safety. The onset of the pandemic upended life as the world knew it, with beauty being among the many industries that took a toll. With spas and clinics being forced to temporarily close or function under skeletal conditions, skincare enthusiasts took matters into their own hands, ushering in a wave of do-it-yourself beauty.
  • Convenience. In addition to being a safer alternative to traditional treatments, having a selection of non-invasive beauty devices at arm’s length unlocks a new level of ease. Keeping your skin in its best condition no longer has to entail leaving home and making your way to a clinic for a pre-booked procedure. Both self-care and healthy skin can be achieved from the comfort of home.
  • Prevalence of skin diseases. According to a 2013 report by the American Academy of Dermatology, one in four Americans is impacted by skin disease. A study from this year, published in the British Journal of Dermatology, also notes that skin diseases are the fourth most common cause behind all human illnesses. These startling statistics, along with the general beauty-consciousness that prevails on social media, are pushing men and women to go the extra mile in caring for their skin.

Introducing OROGOLD Devices: Jelessi & Torchē

OROGOLD Devices: Jelessi & Torche

Despite being best known for our gold-infused skincare products, here at OROGOLD, we also emphasize the value that non-invasive beauty devices bring to the table. Among our roster of electronic beauty tools are a few crowd favorite OROGOLD devices: Jelessi & Torchē.

Jelessi is a brand of beauty devices that harnesses the latest developments in technology to address skin concerns at a deeper level. Each Jelessi device features at least two different modes, making for a more targeted and customizable approach to a variety of skin issues. All Jelessi products have been tested for safety and effectiveness, and are used by professionals and beauty enthusiasts alike.

Torchē, on the other hand, is one of Jelessi’s revolutionary skin-repairing technologies. FDA cleared and dermatologist approved, the Torchē V2+ system is a tried and trusted tool perfect for enhancing your OROGOLD skincare experience.

Benefits of OROGOLD Devices: Jelessi & Torchē

Before we discuss each of the OROGOLD tools worth adding to your routine, let’s answer this question once and for all: how can beauty devices benefit your skin in the first place?

Best-selling OROGOLD devices: Jelessi & Torchē, utilize LED technology to improve the texture and appearance of skin. LED, which stands for Light Emitting Diode therapy, has a long and interesting history rooted in medicine:

  • Scientist Niels Finsen was awarded the Nobel Prize of Medicine in 1903 for his use of light therapy. 
  • As further research was developed, the use of light therapy spread across Eastern Europe. There, LED was used to treat conditions like arthritis, joint issues, soft tissue injury, and chronic pain. 
  • LED was used for NASA’s plant growth experiments in outer space. These experiments showed potential for promoting wound healing and in-depth tissue repair.
  • A 2001 study showed that in combination with hyperbaric oxygen, LED therapy greatly enhanced the wound healing process with wound size decreasing up to 36%. When used to treat injuries of Navy SEAL members, wound healing time was noticeably shortened.

Today, Light Emitting Diode therapy is used not only for medicine but for cosmetic purposes as well. Acne, age spots, wrinkles, external forces, and gradual aging can all deal damage to the skin in varying degrees. In order to effectively target and solve the issues brought about by these forces, OROGOLD devices make use of various LED frequencies and wavelengths.

Eye Wand

Red Light vs Blue Light

Red light, also known as infrared, treats issues on the skin’s surface. Some of the benefits brought about by red LED light therapy include:

  • Increasing collagen production. By reducing the onset of lines and wrinkles, collagen proteins give the skin a fuller, plumper, and younger appearance overall. 
  • Improving circulation. In addition to stimulating collagen production, red light therapy also boosts blood circulation. This ensures that red blood cells carry enough oxygen to the body’s vital organs, including the skin. More oxygen means healthier skin cells!
  • Reducing inflammation. As a result of improved circulation, one of the visible improvements brought about by red light therapy is reduced inflammation and a more even skin tone. 

On the other hand, blue light therapy doubles down on the skin’s sebaceous glands. These glands are responsible for producing sebum or oil. While sebum is necessary for keeping the skin well-lubricated and moisturized, it is solid proof that there can never be too much of a good thing. Excess sebum production can result in oily, greasy skin and break-outs.

Blue light therapy has been proven to have impressive antimicrobial effects. By exposing the skin to blue LED light, bacteria found in the pores and sebaceous glands is diminished. A 2002 clinical trial published in the Journal of Dermatological Science reported that blue light treatments conducted twice weekly resulted in a 64% reduction in acne lesions.

Is LED Therapy Safe?

LED therapy is not the same as ultraviolet therapy. This means that it is safe and non-damaging for the skin. However, in order to maximize safety and minimize chances of infection, devices that utilize Light Emitting Diodes must be developed carefully. 

Here at OROGOLD, we offer nothing less than utmost care. OROGOLD devices: Jelessi and Torchē have been meticulously tested and received multiple seals of approval from dermatologists.

Safe and beginner-friendly, these tools harness the power of LED therapy to visibly improve the skin and expedite the effectiveness of your skincare routine. Below, learn more about OROGOLD devices: Jelessi & Torchē.

Torchē V2+

Torche

Arguably Jelessi’s most popular device, the Torchē V2+ is designed to visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles on the epidermis with infrared light therapy. At the same time, the device’s LED light penetrates the hypodermis to work below the skin’s surface, resulting in long-lasting firmness. For better blood circulation and intensified results, the device also includes a built-in heat setting that climbs up to 105 °F. 

For optimal results, use the Jelessi Torchē V2+ twice to thrice per week. Ensure consistent use for three consecutive weeks to see immediate effects.

To use the Torchē V2+, power up the device. Wait for the green indicator light to shine steadily, and then apply the device to clean dry skin. To activate the device’s heat setting, simply press on the “HEAT” button and wait for both green and yellow indicator lights to switch on. Using light pressure, place the device against one area of the face. Move the applicator slowly in circular motions for 5 to 7 minutes before moving to another area. Finish up your session by applying a nourishing moisturizer to all treated areas. 

Torchē V2+ Amber Light

Torche Amber

The cult-favorite device gets an interesting spin with Jelessi’s Torchē V2+ Amber Light. Bringing a different LED frequency to the table, this tool uses amber light instead of the usual red or blue. Apart from improving circulation, amber light can improve dark spots, redness, and signs of sun damage. Like the classic Torchē V2+, this device also utilizes heat technology to promote lymphatic flow and depuff the face. 

To use, switch on the device and massage it directly against clean, dry skin. Move the device in circular motions, applying light pressure on each area for three to five minutes. Alternating between the amber LED light and amber light with heat can help achieve optimal results. Repeat the process a maximum of five times a week, applying a serum and moisturizer after each use.

Photonix-2 Jade Eye Wand

OROGOLD devices - Jelessi Eye Wand

Certain parts of the face are more prone to aging, and one of them is the delicate eye area. The skin below and around the eyes is thinner and more fragile than the rest of the face, making it susceptible to puffiness, lines, and periorbital hyperpigmentation. While eye creams can help address the problem, there is a way to boost the effectiveness of these products: the Photonix-2 Jade Eye Wand.

Another Jelessi product, the Photonix-2 Jade Eye Wand is an anti-aging solution that fights right in the palm of your hand. The wand makes use of blue light, red light, and positive ion technology to achieve the best results. Blue light therapy relieves skin fatigue and reduces swelling while red light therapy smooths away wrinkles and increases product absorption. When combined with heat, red LED light can also boost blood circulation and stimulate collagen production.

Lightweight and fitted with a soft-touch ergonomic grip, the Photonix-2 Jade Eye Wand features a cool metal upper with a natural jade stone at the center. Working hand-in-hand with the tool’s LED lights, jade stones have detoxifying and skin-tightening properties.

To use the wand, properly cleanse the eye area and pat dry with a towel. Then, to activate the Anti-Puffiness Mode, simply press the “C” button. Massage the eye area for five to seven minutes. To use the wand’s Anti-Aging Mode, press the “H” button and allow the metal head to warm up for one minute. Once warm, apply the serum directly onto the metal head. Massage the eye area for five to seven minutes. For the best results, use either of the modes twice to thrice a week.

Photonix-3 Neck Solution 

OROGOLD Device - Jelessi Neck Wand

Like the eyes, the neck is another area that can show telltale signs of aging before the rest of the face and body. In order to prevent lines, wrinkles, and sagging from showing through, it’s important to properly moisturize the area and stimulate it with LED therapy.

Our answer to this dilemma is the Jelessi Photonix-3 Neck Solution. With an ergonomic grip and touch sensors, this device is simple and convenient to use despite its bulkier frame.

The Photonix-3 Neck Solution harnesses three LED frequencies to target the neck and shoulders:

  • Blue light therapy prevents loss of elasticity while targeting stubborn sunspots and acne.
  • Red light therapy, which includes thermal heat, activates elastin production and reduces wrinkles.
  • Greenlight therapy serves as an anti-inflammatory treatment that stimulates blood flow. Like the red light, this mode also includes thermal heat therapy.

To use the Photonix-3 Neck Solution, make sure to apply your facial skincare on the neck and shoulder area. Activate the ring sensor, place the device against the skin, and select your desired treatment mode. Gently massage the skin, moving the device in upward motions to stimulate a lifting effect.

Summary

Aging, breakouts, uneven skin tone, and inflammation are all common skin concerns that we face even after finding a skincare routine that suits our skin types. However, navigating these skin concerns can become easier and more convenient with a little help from nifty OROGOLD devices: Jelessi & Torchē. Elevate your OROGOLD routine while fighting off signs of aging and skin damage.

What is Mandelic Acid and Why is Everyone Talking About it?

Almonds and extract

Every few months, a new skincare ingredient comes into the spotlight to take over beauty headlines and dominate the market. Between Hyaluronic Acid and Retinol, Ceramides and Centella, it seems we never run out of interesting new ingredients to fixate on. 

One such ingredient is Mandelic Acid, which has recently earned a spot in the skincare routines of many. However, Mandelic Acid is not just another skincare fad that will come, go, and eventually end up in the back of everyone’s medicine cabinets. With its diverse range of benefits and gentler impact on the skin, OROGOLD is here to argue that multitasking Mandelic Acid is here to stay. 

What is Mandelic Acid?

Infographic

One of the star components behind OROGOLD’s Multi-Vitamin Deep Peeling + Mandelic Acid, the ingredient is an AlphaHydroxy Acid or AHA. Like other AHAs, it exfoliates, smoothens texture, and gets rid of stubborn bumps.

Here’s the catch: Mandelic Acid isn’t your run-of-the-mill AHA. Derived from bitter almonds, Mandelic Acid molecules are larger compared to other AHAs like Glycolic Acid. This means that it sinks in and penetrates at a slower rate, thus slimming the chances of causing irritation. It’s gentler, but just as effective.

Why Exfoliate in the First Place?

Exfoliation is often treated as an optional step in skincare, when in fact, it should be considered non-negotiable.

It’s human nature: our skin lets go of dead skin cells every month to welcome a new batch of cells. However, there is a tendency for dead cells not to shed off completely. This can eventually lead to clogged pores, dry patches, or flaking skin.

With new cells entering the picture every 30 days or so, regular exfoliation is the least we can do to help our skin out. But it is important to remember that unlike cleansing or moisturizing, exfoliating too often can cause sensitivity, which is why experts recommend exfoliating on a weekly basis. 

The Different Methods of Exfoliation

Woman exfoliating

There are a number of ways to exfoliate the skin. Consider any of these three types:

  • Physical exfoliation entails the need for rubbing, scrubbing, or manually working the skin to facilitate the removal of dead skin cells. Physical exfoliation can be done through a variety of means like skincare products or tools. Popular physical exfoliation methods include scrubs with small particles or granules, rubbing the face with a textured towel, or cleansing with a facial brush.
  • Chemical exfoliation, on the other hand, harnesses a carefully formulated combination of acids, retinol, or other skincare ingredients to slough off dead skin. Unlike physical exfoliation, this does not require scrubbing at the skin. Instead, chemical exfoliants are patted onto the skin to work from the inside out. 
  • Combining both physical and chemical exfoliation methods is also possible. Several skincare products combine chemical and physical exfoliants in a single product to target dead skin more effectively. One such product is the Multi-Vitamin Deep Peeling + Mandelic Acid from OROGOLD.

Where Does Mandelic Acid Fall Then?

As an acid, Mandelic Acid is a chemical exfoliator, able to penetrate the skin to improve texture and tone from the inside. Due to its multiple benefits and gentler impact on the skin, Mandelic Acid can be strategically combined with other ingredients for even better, more drastic results.

Skin Benefits of Mandelic Acid

Like all AHAs, Mandelic Acid assists the skin in shedding dead cells and boosting cell turnover. But that’s not the only trick this ingredient has up its sleeve.

Mandelic Acid also serves up the following skincare benefits:

  • Reducing marks and hyperpigmentation. Exfoliation is commonly associated with unveiling a more even texture, but it also contributes to the fading of scars, dark marks, and telltale signs of sun damage.
  • Brightening the skin. Another benefit of chemical exfoliation is a more radiant, more even skin tone. 
  • Minimizing pores. Because of excess sebum, acne-prone and oily skin types are more likely to have large or clogged pores. By doubling down on the debris that the skin is struggling to shed, using Mandelic Acid weekly can result in noticeably smaller pores.
  • Promoting collagen production. Our bodies naturally produce collagen, but this ability slows down and dwindles with time. Mandelic Acid is able to reinforce the body’s collagen production, as shown in a 2013 study on the effects of Mandelic Acid peels. Increased collagen production can contribute to reversing visible signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging. Another study also reported noticeable improvements in undereye elasticity after four weeks of Mandelic Acid treatment. 

The Risks of Mandelic Acid

A general rule of thumb to remember when introducing acids to your routine is this: proceed with caution. Due to their chemical composition, acids can potentially irritate those with sensitive-prone skin.

However, Mandelic Acid is something of an exception. Unlike other AHAs, which can deal harsh effects on the skin, Mandelic Acid is extremely gentle. Side effects of this ingredient are mild at worst. Regardless, dermatologists recommend patch testing all products that you are using for the first time.

Ingredients to Layer with Mandelic Acid

Skincare ingredients

While Mandelic Acid serves up its fair share of skincare benefits, it works even better in tandem with other ingredients that draw out its full potential. Mandelic Acid can be paired with vitamins, oils, antioxidant-rich extracts, and even physical exfoliants—all of which can be found in OROGOLD’s best-selling Multi-Vitamin Deep Peeling + Mandelic Acid.

Let’s dissect the ingredient list to learn more about the benefits of this skincare breakthrough. 

Vitamins

A primary component of the Multi-Vitamin Deep Peeling + Mandelic Acid is, of course, its unique combination of skin-loving vitamins.

Vitamin C

One of the vitamins found in the product is Vitamin C, which is present in two forms: Ascorbic Acid and Ascorbyl Palmitate. 

Few ingredients can claim to have a following as large and loyal as Vitamin C’s. A cult favorite in the beauty market, Vitamin C shares a few mutual benefits with Mandelic Acid:

  • Fading scars and marks. Vitamin C has the ability to inhibit the production of melanin, which is responsible for turning acne marks and UV damage into a different shade. When applied consistently over an extended period, Vitamin C also helps fortify the skin, preventing pigmentation from showing through in the first place.
  • Brightening the skin. Like Mandelic Acid, Vitamin C equalizes uneven skin tones while combating dullness.
  • Preventing fine lines and wrinkles. By boosting the skin’s collagen production, Vitamin C can improve the appearance of premature signs of aging.

When combined, Mandelic Acid and Vitamin C work even more effectively.

Vitamin A

In addition to pure Ascorbic Acid, OROGOLD’s Multi-Vitamin Deep Peeling + Mandelic Acid also includes Ascorbyl Palmitate, a more stable form of Vitamin C, in its formulation.

Another vitamin in OROGOLD’s Multi-Vitamin Deep Peeling + Mandelic Acid is Vitamin A in the form of Retinyl Palmitate.

Similar to how Mandelic Acid is gentler than other AHAs, Retinyl Palmitate is a perfect solution for sensitive-skinned folks who want to dip their toes into using Retinol. Retinyl Palmitate causes little to no irritation compared to other retinoids but still delivers on its pore-clearing, texture-refining properties.

Vitamin E

The last addition to the vitamin cocktail is Tocopheryl Acetate. Commonly known as Vitamin E, Tocopheryl Acetate is often paired with Vitamin C because of its natural protective properties. While Vitamin C brightens and fades scars, Vitamin E protects and nourishes the skin. 

Oils and Moisturizers

Jojoba oil

Even though Mandelic Acid deals minimal damage to the skin, it’s always a good idea to combine acids with nourishing ingredients. This makes for better-rounded formulations overall.

Despite being an exfoliating product, the Multi-Vitamin Deep Peeling + Mandelic Acid balances deep cleaning and dead cell removal with moisturizing benefits from the following ingredients:

  • Propylene Glycol
  • Jojoba Esters
  • Candelilla Wax

Let’s talk about the benefits that each of these oils and moisturizers brings to the table:

Propylene Glycol

If you regularly read through skincare ingredient lists, chances are you’ve come across Propylene Glycol in the past. 

Propylene Glycol is derived from petroleum, which can sound all sorts of intimidating at first. But it’s important to remember that cosmetic-grade petroleum is different from the kind of petroleum most of us might be familiar with. Propylene Glycol is not toxic—in fact, it’s quite the opposite. With the ability to draw water to the skin and lock it in, it promotes hydration, moisture, and all-around skin health.

Jojoba Oil

You’ve probably heard of Jojoba Oil. It’s another common addition to moisturizers and balms for its moisturizing properties. Jojoba Esters are pretty similar: the difference is that Jojoba Esters are derived from Jojoba Oil, combining both fatty acids and fatty alcohols. This often results in a thick, creamy consistency that enriches formulations, smooths the skin, and sinks into the skin easily.

Candelilla Wax

Candelilla Wax rounds up the list of moisturizing ingredients in OROGOLD’s Multi-Vitamin Deep Peeling + Mandelic Acid. A vegetable wax derived from a North Mexican shrub, Candelilla Wax is a common vegan alternative to Beeswax.

Physical Exfoliants

Mandelic Acid is gentle on the skin, so can be combined with finely textured ingredients to target both chemical and physical exfoliation in one go. The dynamic duo of physical exfoliants in the Multi-Vitamin Deep Peeling + Mandelic Acid is made up of Walnut Shell Powder and Bamboo Extract Powder. 

But first, let’s address the elephant in the room. It’s impossible to discuss these ingredients without touching on the divided opinions that skincare enthusiasts have about them.

The hesitation to use these ingredients in skincare stems from the fear of microtears and abrasions that large pieces of bamboo stem and walnut shells can cause. However, when finely milled, these ingredients are just gentle enough to lightly exfoliate the skin’s surface and slough off dead cells.

Antioxidants

When it comes to skincare, the more antioxidants the better. Antioxidants neutralize skin-damaging free radicals that are a result of environmental stressors: UV damage, smoke, strong winds. 

They offer protective and preventive benefits, making them a form of skin insurance. Since there’s no way to avoid external skin stressors completely, taking the time to nourish your skin with antioxidants will serve your skin in the long run.

OROGOLD’s Multi-Vitamin Deep Peeling + Mandelic Acid includes several antioxidant-rich ingredients in its formulation. Among these are Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Gold.

Gold

OROGOLD Deep Peeling + Mandelic Acid

Pure Gold is OROGOLD’s signature ingredient, present across all its product lines and best-sellers. More than just a symbol of luxury, Gold has been used across centuries and cultures for medicinal and beauty-related purposes. In the realm of skincare, Gold can improve the skin by:

  • Fighting environmental stress. Performing its primary goal as an antioxidant-rich ingredient, Gold reduces the damage dealt by external forces to keep the skin healthy.
  • Maintains skin moisture. As a mineral and metal, Gold’s ions boost blood circulation, leading to higher moisture levels.
  • Fights premature aging. Aging, dryness, and skin damage are often a three-part equation. By improving moisture and protecting the skin from environmental stressors, regular use of Gold can reduce the appearance of fine lines.
  • Boosting radiance. Studies have reported that Gold nanoparticles or nanopeptides sink into the deeper layers of the skin, improving hydration and elasticity. This results in healthier and younger-looking skin.

All things considered, Mandelic Acid is a powerful force to be reckoned with. That said, it’s even better when strategically combined with vitamins, moisturizers, antioxidants, and fine-textured physical exfoliants. Include the OROGOLD Multi-Vitamin Deep Peeling + Mandelic Acid in your weekly regimen to see the difference.

To use OROGOLD’s Multi-Vitamin Deep Peeling + Mandelic Acid, apply a small amount of product to dry skin. Massage it into the skin in circular motions, mindfully avoiding the eye area. Rinse off the product with cool water. For optimal results, repeat once a week in combination with OROGOLD’s 24K Multi-Vitamin Collection.

Are Premium Skincare Products Worth the Investment?

OROGOLD premium skincare products

With an abundance of affordable, bang-for-your-buck solutions out there, it may seem nonessential to splurge on premium skincare products. After all, many have survived on drugstore and generic skincare all their lives. Why bother spending more than we need?

The answer is this: skincare is anything but trivial. This means that your skincare should be an investment.

Unlike clothing, what you put on your face directly affects the condition of your skin. Depending on your skin type, your sensitivity level, and the formulations of the products you use, these effects could manifest for a few days or extend for months on end. 

While genetics, diet, and environmental factors are important too, your skincare can make or break your skin. For this exact reason, building your skincare routine should be a mindful, discerning process. Your skin deserves only the best of the best.

This is where OROGOLD’s premium skincare products come in.

Who is OROGOLD?

24K Multi Vitamin Night Nourishment

A brand dedicated to spotlighting the multiple benefits of gold, OROGOLD Cosmetics is built on years’ worth of culture and research. 

The world knows that Cleopatra famously incorporated gold into her beauty regimen. However, she wasn’t the only one who had a staunch belief in the benefits of the ingredient:

Gold has been used for a wide variety of purposes across many centuries and cultures. It’s been a benchmark of beauty and wealth, an anti-aging elixir, and even an all-around salve for skin concerns.

OROGOLD not only harnesses these benefits but further amplifies them with expertly concocted formulations. By combining gold with other tried and tested skincare ingredients, our brand has developed a roster of products that is both luxurious and effective.

OROGOLD’s products fall under the umbrella of high-end beauty. While they come with a luxurious price tag to match, premium skincare products like OROGOLD are well worth the investment. Here’s why:

Ingredient Selection

OROGOLD premium skincare products

OROGOLD’s premium skincare products would not have come into existence if not for the multiple properties that gold offers in the realms of health and beauty.

24K Gold

Some of the benefits gold can provide include:

  • Neutralizing free radicals. These are responsible for many visible signs of aging and skin fatigue. Fortunately, the high antioxidant content of gold helps to combat this. 
  • Fighting off inflammation. Colloidal gold has been used by medical professionals to treat rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune inflammatory ailment.
  • Stimulating the skin. As a metal and mineral, gold can stimulate the skin to improve blood circulation. In turn, this boosts the skin’s moisture levels.
  • Boosting the skin’s natural glow. Gold nanoparticles can penetrate deeper into the skin, effectively boosting hydration and elasticity.
  • Diminishing toxins. Ancient Chinese history traces the advanced applications of gold back to the Ming Dynasty. During this time, physicians used gold to treat skin conditions like smallpox and ulcers. 

DMAE

DMAE, which stands for Dimethylaminoethanol Tartrate, is a compound naturally found in the human body and is the star of OROGOLD’s DMAE line. In the medical field, DMAE is believed to positively affect mood and memory. Meanwhile, in the beauty realm, this ingredient brings potent anti-aging benefits. 

According to a four-month study published in the American Journal of Clinical Dermatology, a product infused with 3% DMAE reduced lines and wrinkles around the eyes and forehead — both common problem areas. Meanwhile, a 2009 study reported improved hydration and better appearance overall. 

CBD

The star of our Cannabis Golden Leaf Collection, Cannabidiol is a compound derived from the controversial cannabis plant.

Despite the ingredient being banned in certain states and countries, CBD has been proven to provide a variety of skin benefits. Some of these benefits are:

  • Fighting dryness and flaking. Thanks to CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties, various forms of the ingredient can be used to treat skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis. This makes CBD oil and products especially great for those suffering from heightened sensitivity. 
  • Slowing down signs of aging. No matter what products you use or treatments you commit to, aging is inevitable. There are, however, ways to slow down the visible signs that come hand-in-hand with aging, like lines, sagging, and wrinkles. According to a 2017 study published in Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research, the antioxidants found in CBD are one such way to combat signs of aging, which are largely caused by oxidative stress.
  • Calming and preventing acne flare-ups. In addition to being packed with antioxidants, Cannabidiol also has anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and oil-reducing abilities. The Journal of Clinical Investigation also reported a study in 2014, highlighting CBD’s effectiveness in regulating sebum-producing sebocytes.

Research & Innovation

Skincare lab

In the ever-changing beauty landscape, it is not enough to come up with a hit product and stop there. At OROGOLD, innovation is king. With multiple best-selling product lines, we continue to find ways to continuously improve its roster and stay ahead of the game.

A classic example of OROGOLD’s beauty innovations is our Tèrmica Collection. While cooling skincare products have long been in demand, this line flips the switch, instead offering up innovations from the opposite side of the spectrum: unique self-warming products.

Beauty’s equivalent of a cozy blanket or a trusty down coat, self-warming skincare products are ideal for the wintertime. Brisk weather strips the skin of moisture, but the OROGOLD Tèrmica line can undo the damage. It’ll also calm the skin and bring back its natural texture. You can see why this collection is so popular!

The Tèrmica line consists of four products. While all the products on the roster are anti-aging, they each have unique formulas and other top-tier ingredients to target additional skin concerns:

Synergistic Formulations

There are no one-hit wonders here. At OROGOLD, premium skincare products are created in collections that either target a specific skin concern or harness the skin-nourishing abilities of a particular ingredient.

While mixing and matching cleansers, toners, moisturizers, and other products may work well for some, having synergistic products in a single collection takes the guesswork out of your skincare. Instead of navigating your way through endless beauty aisles and online catalogs, you can rest easy knowing that OROGOLD’s collections can get the job done. 

The Skincare Experience

OROGOLD advert

Another reason to consider premium skincare products is the pure pleasure that comes with using them.

Effectiveness and results aside, using luxury products can give off a completely different experience from more affordable options from the drugstore. From the thoughtfully designed and sturdy packaging to the richer, more substantial textures of the products, choosing premium skincare products means choosing a more enjoyable skincare experience. 

OROGOLD Collections to Try

If you’re ready to welcome premium skincare products into your regimen, we’ll help you figure out where to begin.

With so many diverse collections to choose from, it can be daunting to narrow down exactly where to kick off your OROGOLD journey. Below, we’ve rounded up a few foolproof OROGOLD collections that can work wonders for all skin types:

24K Vitamin C Collection

OROGOLD Vitamin C Collection

This is one of OROGOLD’s most straightforward collections. Consisting of only two products, the 24K Vitamin C Facial Cleanser and 24K Vitamin C Booster Facial Serum, this may seem like an extremely pared-down collection. However, you might just find that these two premium skincare products are all you truly need.

Ascorbic Acid, or Vitamin C, has been recognized as a star ingredient in the skincare world. A mainstay in the routines of many, Vitamin C has the ability to:

  • Combat hyperpigmentation. By inhibiting the production of melanin, Vitamin C-infused skincare can chip away at dark marks and stubborn spots. With consistent use, Vitamin C can also help in preventing marks from manifesting on the skin surface.
  • Reduce fine lines and wrinkles. As a naturally acidic ingredient, Vitamin C signals the skin to increase the production of collagen and elastin, two essential protein fibers that keep the skin plump and youthful.
  • Fights environmental stress. Whether it’s UV exposure or oxidative stress, the antioxidants in Vitamin C defend the skin, helping to keep it in tip-top shape.

Get the most of Vitamin C’s benefits with OROGOLD’s Vitamin C collection. Shop the OROGOLD Vitamin C collection online.

24K Multi-Vitamin Collection

OROGOLD Multi Vitamin Collection

Since vitamins are great for the skin, why stop with just Vitamin C? OROGOLD’s Multi-Vitamin collection hinges itself on Vitamins A, C, and E — all of which bring their fair share of benefits. 

We’ve discussed what Vitamin C can do for your skin, but what about Vitamins A and E? Here’s a breakdown:

If retinol or retinoids have a spot in your regimen, consider yourself well acquainted with Vitamin A. With the ability to stimulate collagen production, Vitamin A is a powerful ingredient that can minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also promotes cell regeneration, helping the skin reveal a newer, healthier layer with a better tone and texture. 

Vitamin E, on the other hand, is all about that dewy glow and ample hydration. When the skin’s protective layer is compromised, barrier-boosting Vitamin E acts to seal up the cracks that can cause a loss in moisture. This ingredient also has healing and soothing properties, thanks to its antioxidant content.

A dynamic duo in the skincare world, vitamins C and E amplify each other’s strengths. While one brightens, the other protects. When worn together under SPF, Vitamins C and E can amplify the protection level of the sunscreen, giving the skin an effective shield to fight against UV exposure and environmental stress.

White Gold Collection

OROGOLD White Gold Collection

One of OROGOLD’s most extensive product lines, the 24K White Gold collection casts a wide net in terms of its capabilities. Across this lineup of 12 products, you’ll find everything your skin could need, from anti-aging gold to nurturing botanicals. You can easily put together a daily skincare routine from this collection. 

Some of the key ingredients found in the White Gold collection include:

  • Sunflower Seed Oil. Despite being an oil, this ingredient is non-comedogenic, meaning it won’t clog or irritate the skin. It contains linoleic acid, enabling Sunflower Seed Oil to help maintain the skin’s moisture barrier, as proven in a 2013 study.
  • Glycerin. An unsung hydration hero, Glycerin works well with natural oils to pull and lock water into the skin.
  • Cucumber Fruit Extract. Even with its distinct, natural fragrance, Cucumber Fruit Extract is non-sensitizing. With the ability to cleanse, soothe, and heal, this ingredient is a favorite across all skin types. 
  • Shea Butter. Many moisturizers and body creams contain Shea Butter because it is an all-in-one hydrator. It brings moisture to the skin, protects against temperature sensitivity, and plumps the skin as it does the job.
  • Cetearyl Alcohol. Unlike the simple, stripping alcohols that cause stinging and redness, Cetearyl Alcohol is non-damaging and non-sensitizing. Cetearyl Alcohol is loved for its ability to emulsify and stabilize formulas, encouraging thicker and more even formulations.

The White Gold collection is also one of the few product lines that include both skin and body care. Beyond skincare staples like a cleanser, toner, moisturizer, and cream, you’ll also find the 24K Classic Hand & Body Cream, 24K Hydrating Body Mist, and 24K Classic Body Butter.

The Correct Way to Use a Scrub

Gold scrub

If you’re a skincare enthusiast, chances are that you’ve used a scrub before.

Scrubs have been around for quite some time in the beauty industry, and they are instrumental in sloughing off all that dead skin and grime off your face and body.

Here at OROGOLD, our 24K Classic Body Scrub gives you the ultimate spa experience right from the comfort of your own home. This scrub gently but effectively removes your skin’s outer layer, renewing and rejuvenating it.

The best part? It’s gentle enough that you can use it on your facial skin as well. However, we also offer a few other exfoliating products too, so don’t forget to also check them out.

Our gold scrub contains ingredients like glycerin, Dragon’s Blood extract, cucumber extract, and calendula extract that’ll help revitalize your skin, gently exfoliating without compromising your skin barrier. If you struggle with dull, dry skin, or need a pick-me-up, just grab this gold scrub because trust us, this bad boy does not disappoint. It’s even enriched with luxurious 24K gold, perfect for that self-pamper sesh!

However, did you know that if you don’t use a face scrub properly, it may result in more damage to your skin? Read on to learn more about the dos and don’ts of using a face scrub.

Why Do We Use Scrubs?

OROGOLD gold scrub for body

Body and facial scrubs are incredibly beneficial. By removing dead skin, they improve your skin’s absorption of moisturizer. That way, any moisturizer applied after a good scrub will penetrate the skin more deeply.

Besides that, they unclog pores and keep ingrown hairs at bay. Using a body scrub regularly can help clear your pores and avoid razor bumps and ingrown hairs.

Body scrubs can aid in smoothening and evening out your skin. If you don’t remove dry skin, it causes your skin to feel rough to the touch, with a dull, cracked texture and appearance. You should have smoother and more even skin after removing the dead, dry cells with our best-selling gold scrub.

Benefits Of Using a Scrub

Reduce the Appearance of Scars

If you struggle with scarring, physical exfoliation can help! Acne scars and hyperpigmentation can also be reduced with scrubs, even if they’re on your body.

Using OROGOLD’s gold scrub aids in the natural resurfacing of the skin. Exfoliating eliminates dead and damaged skin cells, allowing your skin to regenerate.

Say Goodbye to Flaky Skin

Struggle with dry, flaky skin? Don’t worry, use our gold scrub, and you’re good to go.

Flakey skin can make your skin look sallow, rough, and dull. Using a facial scrub to exfoliate the face will help you get rid of flaky skin and make it smoother.

Clogged Pores Will Become a Thing of the Past

Clogged pores can be the bane of our existence.

To keep the skin hydrated, the body creates sebum, a natural oil. However, occasionally the creation of sebum oil becomes excessive, and all that oil is trapped in the pores of your skin.

Acne outbreaks occur when the skin pores get clogged. Exfoliation eliminates sebum oil from the skin and unclogs the pores.

Welcome, Smooth Skin!

Physically exfoliating your skin can result in glowing, brighter skin because it helps remove dead skin cells. It also stimulates collagen production, which helps to plump and tighten the skin in the long run. 

When is the Best Time to Use a Scrub?

Face Scrubs

Scrubbing is a form of physical exfoliation, which is a tad different from chemical exfoliation. In general, chemical exfoliants can be used daily. On the other hand, using physical methods more than once a week may be too harsh.

Most experts would advise you to exfoliate two to three times per week. However, if your skin is delicate, you may only need to exfoliate every other week. Most people believe that just weekly exfoliation is enough for a newcomer, and it’s a good place to start.

Apply the OROGOLD gold scrub to slightly damp skin and massage for 60 seconds in a circular motion over the entire face. To get the best results from a facial scrub, remember to not press hard on your skin, as this will cause irritation.  If you believe your skin could benefit from more exfoliation, use it for at least 90 seconds rather than applying more pressure. After rinsing, don’t forget to apply toner, serum, and our 24K Deep Moisturizer.

When’s the best time to get exfoliatin’? Well, in the shower, of course!

It’s preferable to use a body scrub while still in the shower immediately after washing to ensure that your skin is clean and ready to exfoliate. In general, you shouldn’t use a body scrub every day or even every other day on your skin. This may result in dry or irritated skin.

Your skin type will determine how often you should apply a body scrub (or exfoliate in general). However, you shouldn’t use OROGOLD’s gold scrub more than twice a week. If you have sensitive skin, you should only use the gold scrub once a week.

Skin Types And Exfoliation Frequency

Since our skin type plays a major role in how much we should exfoliate and give ourselves a good scrubbin’, here’s a quick guide to that:

Mature Skin

When it comes to mature skin, try using a chemical exfoliant that is gentle two times per week. Redness or irritation should lead you to reduce the frequency of your use.

Enzymes or alpha hydroxy acid products are definitely recommended! You’ll find a powerful yet gentle alpha hydroxy acid in the OROGOLD 24K Multi-Vitamin Deep Peeling + Mandelic Acid. This is a one-of-a-kind exfoliating gel that uses Mandelic Acid, vitamin C, and bamboo stem powder to gently polish skin without the use of harsh scrubs. Your skin will feel radiant and revitalized after using this peeling solution.

Combination Skin

Combination skin is probably the hardiest skin type around. You can go either way and even mix and match scrubs, acids, and enzymes.

If it’s suitable for your skin, exfoliate two or three times per week.

Those with combination skin could try making ingredients like mandelic acid your BFF. Mandelic helps to remove excess oil from the face while remaining gentle enough to use on dry skin.

Besides the gold scrub, you could also try our 24K Multi-Vitamin Deep Peeling exfoliator.

Oily/Acne-Prone Skin

If your skin can tolerate it, those with an oily or acne-prone skin type can exfoliate the face two or three times per week.

Dermatologists also recommend using products that are oil-soluble, like salicylic acid.

BHA, or beta hydroxy acid, aids in unclogging pores without interfering with oil production. Not only can it prevent breakouts, but it can also treat them. Additionally, people with oily skin should try physical exfoliation to help remove any buildup that isn’t oil or sebum.

Other than adding our gold scrub to your facial routine mix, you could also invest in this 24K Deep Facial Brush Set for some added exfoliation. Enhance your facial cleansing experience with this two-in-one system that exfoliates and guarantees proper dispersion of topical skincare treatments with an attachable soft bristle brush and a gentle silicone brush.

Dry/Sensitive Skin

Be cautious if you have dry or sensitive skin because harsh cosmetics and skincare can irritate the skin, causing it to become even more dry or sensitive.

Only exfoliate once or twice a week for these skin types.

An enzyme is the best exfoliator for those with extremely sensitive skin, and if you’re on the dry side, glycolic acid is your go-to exfoliant. That being said, you don’t have to avoid physical exfoliants because sensitive skin types can handle physical exfoliation to a certain degree.

You could alternate your usage of the OROGOLD gold scrub with another one of our bestselling exfoliators, the 24K Cryogenic Diamond Gommage. This is a ground-breaking leave-on solution that exfoliates the skin’s surface softly. This luxurious homage cleanses excess oils and dirt with coconut, green tea, and chamomile extract!

Should You Be Worried About Using Scrubs?

Using scrubs excessively may dry out your skin, which doesn’t sound like a good idea. To prevent skin irritation, dermatologists recommend applying a lotion or moisturizer as soon as possible to seal in the moisture and to avoid dryness.

Studies have shown that exfoliating the skin, while helpful in maintaining a youthful look, can also disrupt your skin barrier for a short time. 

So, what can you do to make sure scrubbing your skin doesn’t cause more harm than good?

  • Don’t over-exfoliate!
  • Don’t go out in the sun too much, and always remember to slather on some SPF.
  • Use skin barrier repair products.
  • Avoid saunas and bathing in very hot water.

Face Scrubs: Fact Or Fiction?

Can exfoliating with scrubs damage your skin?

Scrubbing does not imply skin damage. You’ll only damage your skin if your scrub has large and sharp grinding particles in the scrub that can cause tears in your skin.

What’s great about the OROGOLD gold scrub is that it’s made of corn kernels and sugar, which are much gentler on your skin. However, excessive pressure when massaging the scrub can also be harmful.

If you feel a tingling sensation when scrubbing your face or body, that means that the product is effective, right? 

False. That tingling sensation could be a sign of sensitive skin, meaning your skin barrier might be compromised. Unless your scrub contains menthol or other cooling ingredients, stay away from scrubs that make your skin tingle.

Can scrubbing your skin cure acne? 

Facial and body acne can be challenging to deal with, but exfoliating too much with scrubs could make things worse.

A scrub alone cannot treat or heal acne. It would be better to supplement your routine with acne-busting ingredients like BHA’s and benzoyl peroxide.

Will a scrub remove scars on your face?

Using scrubs can definitely lighten the overall look of scars but not make them disappear immediately. For that, try scar-brightening ingredients like alpha arbutin.

Natural scrubs are better, right?

Some scrubs that use natural ingredients are often terrible for the skin. For example, nuts, fruit pits, and salt are all-natural, but they can be pretty harsh on the skin. Other natural ingredients like jojoba beads, oatmeal, silica, and rice bran are gentle and effective. 

However, the only thing that should be considered is how fine the scrub particles are, whether they dissolve when used to avoid overdoing it and whether the formula also contains hydrating and soothing ingredients.

When testing out a scrub, try it on the back of your hand to determine how abrasive the granules are so you don’t develop microtears when you use it.

Can scrubs get rid of blackheads?

Blackheads originate deep in the pore, so face scrubs are powerless against them. When applied to blackheads, a face scrub will only be able to remove the uppermost, visible portion of the blemish.

Another explanation for why blackhead scrubs don’t work is that those black dots that appear in the pores before the skin are spotless are not due to dirty pores that need to be cleaned. Instead, black coloration results from oil and dead skin, oxidizing together and darkening once they reach the surface.

Using a facial scrub on a regular basis can do wonders for your skin. You will have smooth, soft skin when you remove dead skin cells and excess sebum oil from your face.

That’s why we recommend adding the Orogold gold scrub to your everyday routine. It’s suitable for both facial and body skin, so just follow the guidelines above, and you’ll have the skin of your dreams in no time.

If you’d like to treat yourself to a luxurious gold scrub, you’ll find everything that you need here.
