Do You Really Need to Use an Eye Serum?

Eye serum

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

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

Need help with that?

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

What is an Eye Serum?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Woman with good skin

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

It’s Much Thinner

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

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

It Lacks Natural Moisture

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

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

Eye mask

It’s Constantly Under Stress

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

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

It’s Prone to Milia

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

When Should You Start Using an Eye Serum?

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

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

The Best Way to Use an Eye Serum

Woman applying eye serum

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

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

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

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

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

OROGOLD Eye Serums to Enhance Your Eyes

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

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

24K Intensive Eye Serum

24k eye serum

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

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

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

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

24K Anti-Aging Eye Serum

OROGOLD eye care products

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

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

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

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

Enrich Your Eye Care Routine with OROGOLD Cosmetics

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

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

The Difference Between Morning and Night Skincare Routines

Woman applying face cream

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

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

Skin in the Daytime

Woman applying face cream

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

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

Here’s how it works:

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

  • Air 
  • Smoke
  • Pollution
  • UV radiation

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

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

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

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

An OROGOLD Morning Skincare Routine

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

Consider these OROGOLD products for your morning beauty regimen:

The 24K Vitamin C Facial Cleanser

24K Cleanser

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

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

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

  • Witch hazel extract
  • Calendula extract
  • Chamomile extract

The 24K Purifying Toner

24K toner is a great way to treat yourself

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

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

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

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

The 24K Nano Ultra Silk Serum

OROGOLD 24K Nano Ultra Silk Serum

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

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

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

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

Unlike classic vitamin C, tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate is stable. 

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

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

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

The 24K Ultra Day Moisturizer

24K Ultra Day Moisturizer

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

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

Your Skin in the Evening

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

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

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

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

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

An OROGOLD Evening Skincare Routine

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

The 24K Mousse Cleanser

OROGOLD toner

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

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

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

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

The 24K Deep Lift Stretching Mask

White Gold products

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

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

Some of its star ingredients include:

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

The 24K Nano Night Recovery

24K Nano Night Recovery serum

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

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

The 24K Multi-Vitamin Night Nourishment + Retinol

24K Multi Vitamin Night Nourishment

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

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

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

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

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

Summary

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

Our 10 Favorite Spring Skincare Tips 

Woman following spring skincare tips

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

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

Exfoliate Regularly

OROGOLD Deep Peeling + Mandelic Acid

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

Guess what?

That’s not all!

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

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

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

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

Try a Leave-On Exfoliator

OROGOLD Diamond Gommage

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

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

Don’t Forget to Exfoliate Your Body!

OROGOLD gold scrub for body

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

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

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

Our favorite?

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

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

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

Always Moisturize Your Face

Day cream with cosmetic gold

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

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

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

Why?

It’s simple.

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

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

Moisturize Your Body Too

OROGOLD body butter

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

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

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

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

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

Plan For Spring… And Summer

Body mist for spring skincare tips

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

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

Give Your Hands Some TLC

OG Hand Mask

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

Not sure why?

We can explain.

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

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

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

Is this one of our top spring skincare tips?

You bet it is.

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

Upgrade Your SPF

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

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

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

Love Your Lips

24K lip balm

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

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

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

Summary

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

Have You Tried the 24K Rose Gold Collection Yet?

24K Rose Gold Collection

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

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

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

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

What is the 24K Rose Gold Collection?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The 24K Rose Gold Collection

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

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

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

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

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

Cream

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mask

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

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

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

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

Wrinkle filler

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

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

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

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

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

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

24K Rose Gold Duo

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

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

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

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

Incorporating the Entire 24K Rose Gold Collection into Your Routine

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

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

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

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

Conclusion

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

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

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

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

Woman using skincare products to love your skin

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

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

Elevate Your Cleansing Regimen

Cleansing brush for self love skincare

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

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

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

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

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

Start Using a Toner

24K toner is a great way to treat yourself

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

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

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

Indulge in a Face Mask…Or Three

OROGOLD face masks

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

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

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

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

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

Invest in High-Performance Treatments

24K Rose Gold Duo

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

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

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

Feed Your Skin With Superfoods

OROGOLD 24K Wild Caviar

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

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

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

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

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

Go High-Tech With Your Skincare

OROGOLD Devices: Jelessi & Torche

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

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

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

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

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

Spend Time Showing Your Hands and Body Some Love

OROGOLD gold scrub

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

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

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

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

Find a Sunscreen That You Actually Like

OROGOLD SPF moisturizer

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

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

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

Ready to make this self love improvement in your life?

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

Summary

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

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

Woman touching lips

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

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

Keep Your Lips Moisturized with a Hydrating Balm

24K lip balm

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Regularly Exfoliate Your Lips

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

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

How to Exfoliate Your Lips

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

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

Avoid Irritating Ingredients in Lip Care and Makeup Products

Woman using lip balm for lip care

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

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

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

Stop Licking Your Lips

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

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

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

Use a Rich Cream Around Your Lips to Prevent Lip Lines

Day cream with cosmetic gold

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

The product you’ll want to have in your lip care arsenal to prevent the appearance of lip lines is our 24K Multi-Vitamin Day Moisturizer + Amino Acid. Our special day moisturizer is a multi-tasking cream that feels smooth and non-greasy when applied.

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

Stay Hydrated From Within

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

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

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

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

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

Eye Wand

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

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

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

Conclusion

It’s surprisingly easy to achieve a perfect-looking pout. Simply follow the lip care tips above and include the products we’ve discussed as part of your lip care routine. For more gold-infused skincare formulas, check out the OROGOLD bestsellers here.

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 provide an extra boost 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 feel:

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

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 the look of dullness, and smooths out the appearance of the skin.

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 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.

Choosing an LED Skincare Device

Use these frequencies 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 the look of swelling and smooth the appearance of wrinkles, the Photonix-2 Jade Eye Wand can also amplify the effects of your favorite eye creams. 

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 feel of 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 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.

Follow it up with a moisturizer like OROGOLD’s 24K Deep Moisturizer. Rich 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
  • White Tea Extract, taken from the buds and leaves of tea.
  • Hydrolyzed Soy Fiber
  • Vitamins C and E, a skincare power couple 

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.

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.

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 feeling hydrated. 

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

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

So, if you have loved ones living in colder cities and you know for sure that they are having trouble with the appearance of 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, soybean oil, cucumber extract, safflower seed oil, and Abyssinian oil leave the skin feeling loved.

Then we have the 24K Classic Hand & Body Cream. This moisturizing blend is formulated with chamomile extracts and argan oil. It helps hydrate the feel of 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. 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 products that 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 a new skincare journey.

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

First, we have the 24K Vitamin C Cleanser. It helps brighten the look of 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. It’ll give you skin that looks brighter and more rejuvenated.

Next up is the 24K Vitamin C Booster Facial Serum. Vitamin C is important in any skincare routine!

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 leave your skin feeling strong and ready to face the day.

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.

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 skin that looks dull and tired. 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 botanical oils, such as jojoba seed oil, shea butter, sweet almond oil, and more. It also has vitamin A and green tea leaf extract to reduce the appearance of lines. 

Then we have the 24K Anti-Aging Eye Serum. This serum is formulated with vitamin C and palmitoyl oligopeptide

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, making it easy to find the perfect one.

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!

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

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 the appearance of 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 the beautiful-looking 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. The appearance of 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 multiple botanical extracts in this blend, from green tea to aloe vera. These ingredients are why this cream feels so soothing as soon as it hits your skin.

Experiment with 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.

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. 

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 thicker 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. 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 the look of dryness and flakiness while giving your skin a plump appearance 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 looking 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.

New Year’s Resolutions for Your Skin: Part 1

Woman applying neck cream to show new year's resolutions for your skin

With 2022 peeking around the corner, it’s that time of the year where we begin penning down our New Year’s Resolutions. From getting trimmed and toned to starting a business on the side, the New Year welcomes so many possibilities, and we’re so excited to usher in what 2022 has to offer!

One thing that we’re sure is on everyone’s list is skin that looks clear and bright.

While it’s normal to fall into bad skin habits, we should be constantly reevaluating our skincare regimens and routines so that we can get the complexion we’ve always wanted. What better time to kickstart a fantastic skincare routine than the start of the new year?

Stick with us at OROGOLD as we share our favorite ideas when making new year’s resolutions for your skin. We’ll also discuss some top tips on making sure that you stick to your promises!

Invest in Gold

Woman wearing gold face mask patches

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. 

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.

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.

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 look of your neck, but it’ll also target the visibility of 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 extracts.

Amp Up Your 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, the main one being that it can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

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 ingredient.

“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.

Instead, you’ll notice skin that looks fresher, firmer, and smoother.

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.
