Trying to perfect your skincare routine? With so much differing advice out there, it can be difficult to know exactly what you need to do to achieve the flawless complexion that you’ve been dreaming of.
So, today, OROGOLD is here to clear up any confusion. We’re going to share all of the best tips and tricks to help you take your skincare routine to the next level. Whether you’re a skincare beginner or a seasoned pro, this skincare guide will help you to create an effective routine that’s capable of transforming your complexion.
Know How to Layer Your Skincare Products
If you want to get the most out of your skincare products, then you need to know how to layer them properly. Use your products in the wrong order and they’ll fail to work in the way that they should.
The very first step to any skincare routine should always be a cleanser. After all, if you don’t clear away all of the dirt and oil that’s sitting on the surface of your skin, then how will your other products be able to reach your skin cells?
Once you’re done cleansing, the general rule of thumb is to start with your lightest and thinnest product and then work your way up to the thickest. This usually means following your cleanser up with a toner, and then applying one or two serums. After this, seal everything in with a good moisturizer, and then finish off with a layer of sunscreen during the day.
Create Separate Routines for Day and Night
If you really want the perfect skincare routine, then just about every skincare guide out there will tell you how important it is to make sure that your routine is tailored to the time of day that you’re carrying it out.
This is because your skin’s needs change as the day progresses. During the day, it has to deal with so much environmental damage. From UV rays to pollution, your skin cells are well aware of all of the dangers out there. As a result, this is when they put up their defenses and work to keep themselves protected from external aggressors.
Once you fall asleep at night, things start to change. Your skin cells go into repair mode and deal with any damage that has been dealt over the course of the day.
So, ideally, a daytime skincare routine should be packed with vitamins and antioxidants, which you’ll find in the OROGOLD 24K Nano Day Recovery. These will help to leave your skin cells feeling even more protected as they go about their day.
Vitamins are important at night too. However, you should also be using richer ingredients that are more moisturizing, such as those in OROGOLD’s 24K Multi-Vitamin Night Nourishment + Retinol. These will give your skin cells the extra moisture that they need while they’re hard at work at night.
Weekly Multi-Masking Can Be a Gamechanger
The next tip in our skincare guide is to give multi-masking a try. This is a technique that involves using multiple face masks at the same time. It enables you to target a variety of skin concerns in one masking session, since each mask should only be applied to the parts of your face that actually need it.
The key to multi-masking like a pro is to use face masks that work well together. For example, the 24K Termica Energizing Mask and the 24K Deep Lift Stretching Mask are the perfect pair. The Termica mask will help to detoxify the feel of your skin. This makes it perfect for areas of your face that are feeling congested or greasy. Meanwhile, the 24K Deep Lift Stretching Mask will help to tighten and firm your complexion. So, apply this one to the parts of your face with visible fine lines and wrinkles.
Bring Your Facial Routine Down to Your Neck
Studies confirm that the skin on the neck is more prone to premature aging than the skin on the face. This is due to the fact that it’s pretty much always in motion. It also has to deal with a large amount of sun damage.
While that may be the case, the neck is often neglected when it comes to the average skincare routine. Neck care doesn’t have to be anything complicated – simply include your neck in your daily skincare routine, treating it to everything from your cleanser and toner to your serums and moisturizer.
However, if you’d like to go the extra mile to ensure that your neck looks smooth and taut for as long as possible, then our top tip would be to invest in dedicated neck care products.
Our 24K Neck Duo Treatment is the perfect example. This duo contains an essence as well as a cream. Apply the vitamin-enriched essence first before following up with the rich moisturizing cream and your neck will look noticeably tighter and firmer in no time.
Keep an Eye on Ingredient Trends
Most beauty blogs out there will tell you to ignore ingredient trends. After all, trends come and go – most of them don’t have staying power. However, that’s where our skincare guide is different…
While we’re not advising that you hop onto the bandwagon of every skincare trend you hear about, there are plenty of trends out there that do have some merit. If a particular trend catches your eye, then it’s worth doing a little research into it to see what the science has to say.
Take cannabis, for example. The global CBD skincare market is growing at an exponential rate. While many may call this a trend, those in the know would disagree – skincare containing cannabis-derived compounds is here to stay. After all, these ingredients offer up so many benefits without any downsides, so what’s not to love?
If you would like to experience the wonders of cannabis-inspired skincare for yourself, check out OROGOLD’s Cannabis Golden Leaf Collection. All of these products are infused with hemp seed oil, which is loved for how it provides the skin with essential fatty acids and other moisturizing compounds. It’s loaded with antioxidants too, making it a superstar at addressing the visible signs of skin aging. It’s no surprise that so many people have fallen in love with this ingredient, which is why it is quickly becoming a skincare mainstay.
Choose Your Exfoliator Wisely
Every skincare guide will tell you that exfoliation is crucial if you want healthy-looking skin. However, what many fail to highlight is how important it is to choose the right exfoliator. Go with something that doesn’t work well with your skin and you could end up causing more harm than good.
Skincare newbies often start exfoliating with scrubs, a form of physical exfoliation. They’re simple, easy to use, and don’t usually contain many ingredients, making it easy to think that you can’t go wrong. However, many scrubs are far too harsh for the delicate skin on the face. They contain overly sharp and abrasive particles that cause micro-tears in the skin. This results in dryness and an increase in environmental damage.
Chemical exfoliants are known for being gentler. However, again, this is only if you choose the right one. Go with a highly concentrated acid-based solution and you could end up irritating your skin.
So, what’s the solution? It’s OROGOLD’s 24K Multi-Vitamin Deep Peeling + Mandelic Acid. It brings together all of the benefits offered by both physical and chemical exfoliation, but without any of the potentially damaging side effects. Bamboo powder works to physically dislodge your dead skin cells while almond-derived mandelic acid provides a mild chemical exfoliation. Its large molecules aren’t able to penetrate too deeply into the skin, meaning that it’s not going to leave you with sensitivities.
Be Consistent With Your Routine
Consistency is so important when it comes to skincare. Sure, some products, like the 24K DMAE Wrinkle Tightening Solution, provide instant results after your very first use. However, most skincare products require regular use in order for them to work.
This is down to a couple of different reasons. Firstly, many ingredients need to accumulate in your skin before they’re able to produce a noticeable effect. They need to gradually build up, and this will only happen if they’re being used daily.
Secondly, your skin goes through a unique cycle every month or so. The cells deep within your skin produce new skin cells that slowly work their way up to the surface. Once there, they mature, after which they die off and are shed. This makes way for the newer skin cells that are following on behind.
If your skincare products only target the surface layer of your skin, then you’ll see results pretty quickly. However, if the formulas that you’re using are designed to delve deeper, then it’ll take a month or two of regular use before their targeted skin cells reach the surface of your skin to show off their improvements.
Make the Most of New Technology
Some people try to keep their skincare routines as simple and as minimal as possible, and there’s nothing wrong with that. However, technology has had an amazing impact on just about every industry, skincare included. Going high-tech with your skincare routine could be exactly what you need to achieve those advanced results that you’ve been hoping to see.
One of our favorite ways to bring technology into a skincare routine is with an LED skincare device. The Photonix-2 Jade Eye Wand, for example, will work alongside your favorite serums to enhance their effects.
It will also enable you to target specific visible skin concerns with its choice of either blue or red LED lights. The red mode helps to reduce the appearance of aging, including the look of crow’s feet and other creases that are spidering their way around your eyes. Meanwhile, the blue mode will de-puff your complexion. It will leave your eye area looking bright and perky.
