Planning a beach day and hoping for your skin to look glowy rather than greasy? 

This can sometimes be easier said than done! With the heat and humidity causing your skin to produce more oil and sweat, beach days can often lead to shine, inflammation, and breakouts.

The good news is that OROGOLD is here to help! Read on as we share the skincare essentials that will help to keep your skin looking flawless before, during, and after your day at the beach.

Before You Leave:

A beach day can take quite a toll on your skin. To keep your skin feeling safe and protected, some prep work is needed. Start in the shower, cleansing your face and your body. Then, move on to these skincare essentials:

The 24K Classic Body Scrub

Whether you plan on wearing a demure one-piece or a revealing bikini, you’ll want the skin on your body to look smooth and soft. For this to happen, you’ll need to buff away any roughness or dryness with an exfoliator.

That’s where the OROGOLD 24K Classic Body Scrub comes in. Unlike many of the other body scrubs out there, this one doesn’t contain any harsh granules that are going to scratch or tear your skin. Instead, it exfoliates with corn kernel meal, which also works to prevent the feeling of dryness. 

There are several other noteworthy ingredients in this scrub too, from cucumber, chamomile, and marigold, to aloe vera, argan oil, and gold. Massage it onto your damp skin in circular motions for a minute or two before rinsing it off to reveal a beautifully radiant glow!

The 24K Classic Hand & Body Cream

Once you’ve exfoliated your body, it’s so important that you follow this up with a moisturizer. If you don’t, you’ll leave yourself vulnerable to damage while you’re flaunting your freshly exfoliated skin on the beach. 

At the same time, you don’t want your skin to be feeling greasy for the next few hours. A heavy moisturizer will only give your skin a sticky finish, especially once you start sweating.

This is why the 24K Classic Hand & Body Cream is one of the best skincare essentials to turn to before you head for the shore. Although it contains a variety of plant oils, including moringa, mongongo, and babasu nut, it feels incredibly lightweight when applied. It sinks into the skin quickly, leaving it feeling silky rather than weighed down. You’ll only need to apply a very light layer as you’ll soon be following it up with some SPF.

The 24K Vitamin C Booster Facial Serum

Although sunscreens are one of the most useful tools for guarding against the appearance of sun damage, no sunscreen will provide 100% protection. Sure, you could ensure this by keeping your skin completely covered with clothing or by hanging out in the shade but chances are that you want to spend some time frolicking in the sun!

That’s where a vitamin C serum, like the OROGOLD 24K Vitamin C Booster Facial Serum, can be extremely helpful. Research shows that layering vitamin C under your sunscreen leaves the skin feeling even more protected against UV radiation. These effects are enhanced further when vitamin E is used alongside the vitamin C. This is why you’ll find both ingredients in our vitamin C serum. 

Simply apply it to your face, neck, and chest, as well as any areas of your body that are particularly sensitive to the sun, and then move on to your SPF.

The 24K Skin Tone SPF 30

It goes without saying that one of the most crucial skincare essentials for a beach day is a good sunscreen. OROGOLD’s offering is the 24K Skin Tone SPF 30. It’s a moisturizer as well as a sunscreen, making it an effective multi-tasker that not only shields against UV damage but also keeps the skin quenched.

Since it takes about 15-20 minutes for sunscreen to absorb into the skin, you’ll need to apply this product before you leave for the beach. Don’t be stingy with how much you use. You’ll need at least half a teaspoon’s worth for your face and neck, plus more to cover your body too.

Once you’re done, remember to take your sunscreen with you as you’ll need it again at the beach!

While You’re There:

Just because you’ve done some prep work doesn’t mean that you can forget about your skin once you arrive at the beach. Instead, keep these skincare essentials to hand:

The 24K Skin Tone SPF 30

The sunscreen that you previously applied will only protect your skin for about two hours. This makes it vital to reapply your sunscreen throughout the day. To be on the safe side, give your skin another top-up once you arrive at the beach, even if it hasn’t yet been two hours since your last application. 

While doing so, make sure that you cover every inch of exposed skin. It’s so easy to forget about certain parts of your face and body when applying sunscreen. The tips of your ears, your eyelids, and your feet may not be at the forefront of your mind when you’re trying to protect your skin, but those are areas that commonly end up burnt. 

Remember, if you’ve been swimming or heavily sweating, you’ll need another layer of sunscreen straight away, even if two hours haven’t passed yet. Water and sweat will soon wash your sunscreen away, so make sure that your skin remains fully protected.

The 24K Purifying Toner

What should you do if your skin starts to feel dry or dehydrated while you’re at the beach? That’s where the next of our skincare essentials comes in; the 24K Purifying Toner. 

This toner is loved for its super-hydrating effects. It’s infused with aloe vera leaf juice, cucumber fruit extract, and several other ingredients that will not only provide a splash of moisture but will also soothe and calm your complexion.

Since this toner comes in a spray bottle, it’s so easy to use while you’re at the beach. Give your skin a quick spritz of this toner before topping up your SPF and your face will look luminous!

The 24K Hydrating Body Mist

While you can go ahead and spritz the toner featured above on your body as well as your face, don’t forget that the skin on your body is much thicker than the skin on your face. The hydrating qualities of the toner will still help your body but they won’t be able to penetrate your skin in the same way they would your face.

That’s why we’ve also created the 24K Hydrating Body Mist. Think of it as a toner for your body. A light mist over your skin is all you need to give your skin a radiant and supple glow. Again, follow this up with a layer of SPF and you’ll be able to lock all of that moisture in for even longer!

The 24K Golden Multi-Corrective Solution

If you’re planning on taking lots of photos while you’re at the beach, then the 24K Golden Multi-Corrective Solution would be worth adding to your arsenal of skincare essentials. 

This is a very special solution that has been designed to quickly address a variety of visible skin concerns. It contains a blend of fast-acting ingredients, from sodium hyaluronate and squalane to DMAE and peptides. Apply it to any fine lines and wrinkles on your face and they’ll immediately look softer and less noticeable.

You can also use this product to target the visibility of dark spots. Thanks to a mixture of gold, mica, and alpha-hydroxy acids, it will instantly even out the look of your skin and make those areas of discoloration look lighter.

After Care:

Even if you took all of the right precautions before and during your day at the beach, your skin will still need some care once your day is over. Here are some skincare essentials to help with that:

The 24K Intensive Eye Serum

24K Intensive Eye Serum

Since the skin around the eyes is so much thinner than the skin anywhere else on the face and body, sun exposure will damage this area so much faster.

So, once you’re out of the sun, give your eye area some TLC with the 24K Intensive Eye Serum. With aloe vera, calendula, and peptides, it will soothe the feel of your skin. Meanwhile, vitamin C, licorice root extract, and green tea extract will brighten and revive your complexion, helping it to recover after a day at the beach. 

Make sure that you’ve cleansed your skin before applying this eye serum. If not, it will struggle to work its way past the layer of dirt, sweat, and sebum on your skin, preventing it from performing to its full potential.

The 24K Nano Night Recovery

24K Nano Night Recovery

You’re probably aware of how beneficial aloe vera can be after your skin has been exposed to the sun. Thanks to how it reduces the feeling of inflammation in the skin, it’s a go-to when people are dealing with a sunburn.

The eye serum above features the ingredient but the rest of your face would benefit from some aloe love too. This is why the OROGOLD 24K Nano Night Recovery also deserves a spot in your collection of skincare essentials.

In addition to aloe vera, it also features chamomile extract. This is another gentle botanical that’s loved for how it can calm the feeling of irritation while soothing the look of redness. The peptides in this formula will work to leave your skin feeling stronger and more resilient and the green tea extract provides a long list of potent antioxidants that will help to repair the appearance of UV damage. It’s the perfect combination of ingredients!
