Oro Gold Skin Care Tips and Products

When we’re young, skin care isn’t much of a priority. Putting on sunscreen is an afterthought and often a chore; we just want to get in the pool or enjoy the fun in the sun. How that pimple is going to affect the chances of getting a date is more important than the actual health of the skin. Pretty much everything we do (or don’t do) to our skin during the course of our lifetime will leave a lasting impression. As we age, the skin changes, and taking care of it becomes more of a priority. Using dependable skin care brands, like Oro Gold products, becomes a more pressing issue.

 

Wrinkles, thinning, sagging, and dryness are all part of the natural internal process of aging. As the skin ages, it doesn’t replace itself as quickly. Elastin and Collagen, the proteins that keep the skin strong and elastic, are produced more slowly. Plus, genetics plays a part too. We have little control over these changes and our genes.

 

 External aging, however, is due to factors we do control, like those childhood sunburns. Exposure to the sun definitely ages the skin and has devastating consequences besides wrinkles, age spots, and a leathery look. Smoking, diet, and repetitive facial expressions are also factors.

 

 Cleanser

A good, basic skin care regimen is good for any age. Taking care of your skin doesn’t have to be expensive. All you really need is a cleanser, a moisturizer, and sunscreen for the basic care of the skin. Taking care of your skin isn’t just about the face. What may work for your oily facial skin may not work for the dry skin on your arms, for instance. Aging skin tends to be thinner and more delicate on the face and hands. Soaps can contain harsh detergents that will strip away the natural oils on your skin and leave it dry and tight. You may want to use a non-soap cleanser for these areas. Oro Gold can help with a variety of cleansers for all types of skin.

Cleansing for skin

Moisturizer

 

Some people with oily skin may think they don’t need a moisturizer, but aging skin needs to restore whatever moisture has been stripped away through washing or due to external aging factors like the sun. A good moisturizer like the Oro Gold moisturizing day cream is essential to aging skin. If you have oily skin, look for a light, oil-free moisturizer. For those with dry skin, heavier creams will work best. You will also need heavier creams for areas of the skin that are thicker, experience more dryness and flaking, and are exposed to more stress, such as the elbows, knees, and heels.

 

Sunscreen

 

Sunscreen should be worn everyday, regardless of your plans. Sunburns can occur in the summertime as well as the wintertime. Most people know to apply it to the face, neck, and ears, but arms and hands also get a lot of exposure to the elements. The skin on the back of the hands sometimes shows signs of aging sooner than the face because it is often neglected.

 

The American Academy of Dermatology recommends using a sunscreen with at least an SPF (sun protection factor) of 15. But for sensitive skin or fair skin, and for those who know they will be spending an extended amount of time outdoors, it is best to use a higher SPF.

 

Use sunscreen to minimize damage from the ultraviolet radiation given off by the sun and protect against sun damage--also called photo-aging--by wearing protective clothes such as hats and cover-ups. Use protection for sensitive areas, such as eyes, by choosing a product like Oro Gold eye serum, for instance. Oro Gold products, or another trusted brand, will give you a good starting point. Additionally, remember to stay hydrated and get plenty of sleep.
