Which OROGOLD Face Mask is Right for You?

OROGOLD face masks

When rounding up your essential skincare routine, face masks might not be part of the roster. Most people might only have the basicsa cleanser, moisturizer, and sunscreen. And while that’s completely fine, you might be missing out on the extra benefits a hydrating and detoxifying mask may provide you. An OROGOLD face mask may fit right in to improve your regimen.

Masking may not exactly be mandatory in your regular skincare regimen, but it’s nice to treat your skin to one when it’s begging for extra love and attention. There are many kinds of masks out there, from nourishing blends to tightening formulas. You just have to pick out the best one for your skin’s needs.

If you’re looking for a more luxurious and opulent masking session, pamper yourself with a gold-infused OROGOLD face mask. There are loads to choose from depending on what your skin is craving. Read on to see which face masks are most suitable for you and your skin concerns.

How to Choose the Right Face Mask for Yourself

Woman applying face mask

Every face mask has a specific purpose in your beauty regimen. Some are formulated with anti-aging ingredients to help smooth out any wrinkles, while others are mainly used to nourish parched and thirsty skin. They even come in different formats, from single-use sheet masks to clay that hardens on your face.

Choosing the right face mask for yourself can be overwhelming. But the key to pinpointing which one is best for you lies in two important factors: your skin type and the active ingredients in a mask.

First, let’s talk about assessing your skin type and condition. Before selecting any skincare product, you need to have a thorough understanding of what your skin needs. Is it dry and thirsty for hydration? Is it oily and clogged up, begging to be detoxified?

The mask you choose will rely on this evaluation. After all, you can’t use a super thick and rich face mask on your already oily and greasy skin. At the same time, you shouldn’t dry out your complexion even more with a stripping charcoal mask if you have dehydrated skin.

You should also think about the top skin concerns you want your face mask to address. Do you want to brighten up those age spots, or plump up your skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines? Knowing what you expect out of your mask makes choosing one a lot easier.

Take a look at the active ingredients of each face mask to see if it can help you address your skin problems. Look for melanin-inhibiting ingredients like vitamin C if you want brighter skin. Keep your eyes peeled for retinol or hyaluronic acid if you want a more youthful, wrinkle-free glow.

Whatever your skin type or concern is, it’s important to be gentle to your skin. Make sure the mask you go for doesn’t have harmful or potentially irritating ingredients, like parabens. Luckily, every OROGOLD face mask is paraben-free to keep your skin safe and healthy.

Here are eight OROGOLD face mask options for you, depending on what your ultimate skin goal is:

To Get a Radiant, Even Skin Tone: 24K Bio-Brightening Pigment Balancing Mask

OROGOLD face mask

Dealing with acne scars and dark spots? Even out your complexion and add a bit of glow with the 24K Bio-Brightening Pigment Balancing Mask. It’s chock-full of skin-loving vitamins A and E to make your skin plump and hydrated, as well as mica to give your complexion that youthful radiance you want.

Vitamin A is known to improve acne and even reduce the appearance of pesky scarring from breakouts. This is because it repairs damaged skin cells that lead to discoloration. Vitamin E, on the other hand, works to moisturize your skin barrier to make it more resilient.

Meanwhile, mica is a mineral that adds radiance and glow to the skin. This healthy ends up making your complexion look brighter and more even in tone.

This OROGOLD face mask comes with a silver spoon to easily scoop out the product. Apply it to a freshly cleansed face and leave it on for around 15 minutes before rinsing it off.

To Detoxify Congested Skin: 24K Collagen and Seaweed Mask

OROGOLD Caviar Collection

Those with oily and congested pores will fall head over heels with the 24K Collagen & Seaweed Mask, a kaolin clay mask that smoothens and detoxifies the skin. It also has hydrating and skin-volumizing ingredients like safflower seed oil, sage, and retinyl palmitate to keep wrinkles away.

Kaolin is known to be one of the gentlest forms of clay in the cosmetics world. It can absorb excess sebum and impurities stuck in your pores, leaving it congested and prone to breakouts. It also soothes the skin of irritation, which is helpful if you have sensitive skin.

That said, this mask isn’t drying or stripping. It plumps up the skin because it’s balanced out with moisturizing and plumping oils and vitamins.

To use this mask, apply a generous layer on clean skin. Kick back and relax for 10 or so minutes before rinsing everything off with cold water.

To Combat Wrinkles and Fine Lines: 24K Nano Hydra Silk Mask

OROGOLD Nano Mask

If you’re starting to notice those inevitable lines and wrinkles popping up on your complexion, bust out the 24K Nano Hydra Silk Mask. This smoothing face mask is infused with anti-aging ingredients like sodium hyaluronate, vitamin E, and hydrating fruit extracts.

Sodium hyaluronate is a derivative of hyaluronic acid, a popular humectant known for its anti-aging abilities. It hydrates the skin deeply, making up for the moisture lost to old age and oxidative stress. This helps smoothen out those fine lines, making your skin look smooth and plump.

This mask is also rich in botanicals, from aloe vera, bilberry, goji, noni, and mangosteen extracts, among others. These help hydrate the skin for a gorgeous glow.

What’s cool about this OROGOLD face mask is that it isn’t a wash-off. You can leave it on your skin, making it a terrific once-a-week alternative to your nourishing night moisturizer.

To Deeply Nourish Dry Skin: 24K DMAE Instant Stretching Mask

OROGOLD face mask from DMAE Collection

In the colder months, your skin can get a bit more dehydrated than usual. Quench its thirst with the deeply nourishing 24K DMAE Instant Stretching Mask, a mask made with a fine blend of moisturizing oils.

This OROGOLD face mask is formulated with jojoba and sunflower seed oils, which add hydration to parched skin. They also leave a slight dewiness to the skin, making it look naturally glassy. Plump and moisturized skin helps minimize the appearance of stark wrinkles and lines, making you look younger.

You can use this wash-off mask every week, allowing it to seep into your skin for 15 minutes before rinsing it off. Be sure to follow up with a high-quality moisturizer after using this mask to help seal in all the nourishing goodness from your masking sesh.

To Wake Your Skin Up with Essential Vitamins: 24K Tèrmica® Energizing Mask

OROGOLD Face Mask and other products

If you’re looking for something fun and innovative, you might enjoy the thermal heating effect of the 24K Tèrmica® Energizing Mask. The heat makes it easier for your skin to absorb all the essential vitamins in this OROGOLD face mask, including vitamins C, E, and A—three of the best vitamins for healthy skin.

Vitamin C is an antioxidant that promotes healthy skin cell turnover and brightens your complexion by inhibiting melanin.

Vitamin E is an antioxidant as well, except it focuses on protecting your skin from free radical damage from pollution and the sun’s UV rays.

Lastly, vitamin A is known to strengthen your epidermis and protect your collagen from breaking down as you age.

Use this rinse-off mask once a month to keep your skin rejuvenated, strengthened, and protected from the harsh elements.

To Boost Elasticity and Firmness: 24K Advanced Facial Mask

OROGOLD Advanced Face Mask

Worried about your skin going saggy and loose as you get older? Boost your skin barrier’s elasticity and bounciness with the 24K Advanced Facial Mask. This creamy mask is infused with cannabis and gold to smoothen the skin, keeping your complexion tight and firm for longer.

This OROGOLD face mask is infused with cannabis sativa in the form of hemp seed oil, which is known to reduce signs of skin aging, like wrinkles. This is thanks to its linoleic and oleic acids — essential fatty acids that boost skin elasticity and softness.

Applying this mask is super easy. Just massage it into your cleansed face and allow it to rest for about 10 minutes. Rinse off and enjoy your soft, smooth skin.

To Soothe Tired, Irritated Skin: 24K Deep Tissue Rejuvenation Mask

OROGOLD face mask

Here’s an OROGOLD face mask that comes in a unique hydrophilic gel sheet format — the 24K Deep Tissue Rejuvenation Mask & Collagen Renewal Mask. It’s infused with lavender and collagen to soothe inflamed or irritated skin, leaving behind a soft and smooth texture.

Lavender has magnificent anti-inflammatory and anti-itch properties, making it the perfect star ingredient for these face and eye sheet masks. It’s also an antioxidant, so it provides added protection against pollution, toxins, and other sources of free radical damage.

One box of this OROGOLD face mask set gives you 12 eye masks and 14 face sheet masks. So if you use a mask once a month, you’ll have more than enough for an entire year.

When wearing these single-use sheet masks, make sure to leave them on for at least 15 minutes before taking them off. That way, you can maximize the serum and make sure all of the nutrients seep into your skin.

To Revitalize Dull, Dehydrated Skin: 24K Rose Hold Hydro Mask

OROGOLD Rose Gold products

Lastly, we have the 24K Rose Gold Hydro Mask, a rosehip-infused mask that wakes up exhausted and dehydrated skin for beautiful radiance. It’s formulated with hydrating ingredients, as well as 24K gold, for a lavish masking experience.

The superhero ingredient of this mask is rosehip extracts. Rosehip oil is known to deeply moisturize the skin because it’s rich in fatty acids. It even has linoleic acid, an essential fat in ceramides — the skin’s main source of naturally-produced moisture.

Rosehip extracts also contain vitamin C, which is known to reduce dark spots and scarring, making your skin look brighter and clearer.

This face mask can double as a night cream since you don’t have to wash it off. Swap it for your moisturizer once a week to get extra nourishment for your parched, weary skin.

Why Are Facial Masks So Important for Your Skin?

Even if you religiously slather on your moisturizers and serums every day, sometimes your skin will crave more hydration and rejuvenation. Face masks are the perfect way to give your skin a little more than what your basic everyday routine does.

Sure, face masks aren’t always necessary. You can even get away with using them just once a month. It’s more of a supplementary skincare step you can look forward to when you want to give yourself a little extra self-love. It’s your weekend treat—an indulgence you don’t always need, but your skin will drink up anyway.

Face masks are excellent at hydrating your skin, making them look and feel smooth and silky-soft to the touch. If your mask has brightening and detoxifying properties, you’ll even look a little glowy.

But face masks aren’t just functional skincare products. They have an amazing emotional benefit too. They’re super therapeutic, especially when they have gorgeous aromas from essential oils and botanical extracts. They’re a great way to wind down and cap off a long, tiring week.

Conclusion

Because there are a plethora of gold-infused OROGOLD face mask options to choose from, it can be overwhelming to select the one that will suit your skin best. So, use this rundown as a guide when shopping for your next spa-like masking treatment.

The rules are pretty simple. If you have dry skin, go for a moisturizing mask. If you have more oily skin, decongest your pores with one that sucks out all the nasty impurities clogging them. And if you’re dealing with fine lines and wrinkles, get a face mask rich in anti-aging vitamins.

Whatever your skin is going through, there’s always an OROGOLD face mask to pose as a solution. Not only will the masks above target your most pressing skin concerns, but they’ll also let you sit back, relax, and pamper your skin with a luxury treatment at home.

OROGOLD Exclusive: High-End Skincare at its Finest

OROGOLD Exclusive products

There’s nothing wrong with liking the finer things in life. Having a penchant for luxury may cost a pretty penny when you’re out shopping, but investing in the things that matter to you is never regrettable, especially when they’re beneficial for your health and wellness in the long run.

Expensive taste can translate into personal shopping, like for your skincare routine. There are many luxury beauty brands out there, so the choices are endless.

But some skincare brands merely slap on a hefty price tag without justifiable reason. Because of that, it can be difficult to look for high-end skincare lines that give you the quality you’re paying for.

The high-end OROGOLD Exclusive collections are made with exquisite ingredients and innovative skincare technologies. Let’s not forget their gorgeous packaging too. Whether it’s by using heat technology to maximize a hydrating mask or exfoliating your skin with brilliant, shiny diamonds, these opulent skincare lines give you your money’s worth.

Luxury Has Always Been at the Heart of OROGOLD

OROGOLD products

OROGOLD has never been one to shy away from luxurious skincare ingredients. Gold is at the forefront of most, if not all of our products. We believe that it’s key to giving your skin the beauty and glow it deserves.

Our products make the glamour and opulence of gold more accessible to everyone, so that we can be like our ancestors before us who used gold in their daily beauty regimens. After all, gold is known as an incredible anti-aging secret. And who doesn’t want that as a bonus in their skincare routine?

But our OROGOLD Exclusive lines are a little different. They’re on the pricier side, but for a good reason. These collections are the crème de la crème that OROGOLD has to offer.

Not only are they infused with 24K gold, but they’re formulated with the latest technologies in skincare. They’ll give you the most relaxing, effective, and sumptuous beauty experience.

Ready to dive into our finest and most luxurious high-end skincare lines? Here are six of the best OROGOLD Exclusive collections we have:

Use Caviar to Pamper and Strengthen Your Skin

OROGOLD Exclusive 24K Caviar Collection

The first OROGOLD Exclusive line we’ll look into is the 24K Caviar Collection — a moisturizing, skin-strengthening line that features sea kelp and opulent caviar as its main ingredients.

Caviar is rich in omega fatty acids and amino acids, which hydrate and plump up the skin. It also strengthens the skin to maintain healthy collagen and elastin levels, giving your skin that healthy, youthful bounce and glow. Because of this, caviar is considered a lush anti-aging ingredient.

This line is all about moisturization to aid in anti-aging. The 24K Kelp Caviar Micro-Bead Cream, for example, makes use of vitamins A and E alongside kelp extracts to boost natural moisture in the skin. This reduces the appearance of harsh wrinkles and fine lines in your complexion.

For something more lightweight, you can use the 24K Kelp Caviar Micro-Bead Serum, infused with green tea and gold. This nighttime serum leaves your skin soft and touchable when you wake up.

The most exciting product in this collection is the 24K Wild Caviar. This unique mask involves crushing what looks to be actual caviar eggs and applying the serum (which consists of majestic gold, soothing tea tree oil, and moisturizing caviar) to your skin.

The line also includes serum capsules rich in age-defying sodium hyaluronate and an ultra-hydrating mask that turns from white to gold as you massage it into your skin. The collection is rooted in innovation to give you the most luxe experience possible.

Nourish Your Skin with All the Vitamins it Needs

OROGOLD Exclusive Multi-Vitamin Collection

Feed your skin the vitamins and nutrients it needs to be bright, plump, and wrinkle-free with the OROGOLD Exclusive 24K Multi-Vitamin Collection. It combines vitamins C, E, and A to beat the signs of aging while bringing dull, lifeless skin back to life.

Experience the magic of retinol with the 24K Multi-Vitamin Night Nourishment + Retinol. This moisturizing night treatment is infused with retinol (a derivative of vitamin A), green tea extracts, and vitamin E to add elasticity and glow to your skin.

Retinol is a holy grail skincare ingredient for mature skin because it promotes faster cell turnover, enhancing collagen production in the deeper layers of skin. That means it smoothes and firms up your skin, diminishing wrinkles and lines.

Another product you’ll love from this line is the 24K Multi-Vitamin Deep Peeling + Mandelic Acid. With exfoliating ingredients like mandelic acid and bamboo powder and brightening vitamin C, this gel serum will shed all the gunk and dead cells from your skin to reveal a more radiant complexion.

Mandelic acid is a gentle alpha-hydroxy acid extracted from almonds. It breaks down grime and dead skin cells, exfoliating your skin thoroughly for a smooth, soft, even texture. Meanwhile, vitamin C has antioxidants to protect you from free radical damage that can age your skin faster.

This collection also carries a day moisturizer rich in amino acids and a hand lotion that nourishes your skin with jojoba and sunflower seed oils. This OROGOLD Exclusive line cares not just for your face, but other skin areas you want to keep smooth and youthful, too.

Protect and Moisturize with Rosehip Oil

OROGOLD Exclusive 24K Rose Gold Collection

If you have incredibly parched skin that’s always thirsty for moisture, you’ll enjoy the 24K Rose Gold Collection, which puts a stunning rose gold color and rosehip oil at the forefront of its products.

Rosehip oil does wonders for aging skin. It’s rich in fatty acids like linoleic and linolenic acids. These moisturize the skin intensely while ensuring it retains all the hydration it absorbs. This keeps the skin plump and firm – a priority for mature skin prone to develop folds and wrinkles.

The most advanced and arguably most opulent product in this line is the 24K Rose Gold IV Filler Concentrate. It’s a powerful wrinkle-tightener that zaps away pesky lines. It’s formulated with DMAE and retinyl palmitate (a derivative of retinol), which are both chock-full of anti-aging properties.

The rest of the collection uses rosehip extracts, vitamin E, and sunflower seed oil to nourish the skin deeply. These products come in a rich nighttime cream, a hydrating mask, and a mattifying day cream.

Get a Brighter, Dewier, Clearer Complexion by Exfoliating with Diamonds

OROGOLD Exclusive Cryogenic Collection

If decadence and sparkle are your kryptonite, then there’s no doubt that the 24K Cryogenic Collection will get you super excited for your daily skincare routine. It makes use of diamond dust and AHAs to exfoliate your skin to keep it clear, smooth, and stunningly radiant.

Diamond dust is fabulous for deep-cleaning your pores. It has a degree of abrasiveness, allowing your pores to open up and release stubborn grime and gunk congesting them. This is a great way to eliminate toxins making your skin rough and dull.

The 24K Cryogenic Diamond Gommage is one product in the line that exfoliates the skin without being too harsh on it. This leave-on serum sheds off dead skin and washes away excess sebum. It’s infused with coconut, chamomile, and green tea to soothe the skin and replenish it with any lost moisture.

Another interesting product from this line is the smoothing 24K Cryogenic MagnoLift Mask. This nourishing mask is made with rosemary extracts, coconut oil, and sunflower seed oil to make your skin feel soft and supple.

What’s cool about this mask is that you use a special magnet to lift the mask away after letting your skin soak in it for 5-10 minutes. It’s an innovative skincare technology that allows for a richer, more opulent masking experience.

Intensify Your Beauty Regimen with Heat Activation

OROGOLD Exclusive Termica Collection

Energize and wake up your skin with a bit of self-heating technology in this 24K Tèrmica® Collection. Heat technology is fantastic for dilating your pores and ejecting all the dirt and impurities stuck inside. It also improves your blood circulation and how your skin absorbs the products in your routine.

The star product in this line is the 24K Tèrmica® Energizing Mask. It’s rich in vitamins A, C, and E. These will refresh, strengthen, and add glow to your skin. The mask has a heating effect that warms up your skin for a relaxing experience.

You can make the mask above a little more intense by applying the 24K Tèrmica® Activation Serum, an anti-aging gel infused with witch hazel, seaweed, and green tea. This serum eliminates the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

There are nourishing and wrinkle-diminishing solutions in this line, too, like moisturizing cream and spot treatment. The collection even includes the 24K HD Touch. This is a face massager that helps you apply your creams and serums smoothly on your skin. It relaxes your skin and boosts blood flow, too.

Why It’s a Great Idea to Invest in High-End, High-Quality Skincare

Shopping for new skincare products is a constant battle between drugstore and high-end options. Don’t be afraid to splurge a little more for your skincare steps. When you pay a higher premium than usual, you know you’re getting top-quality goods. Just like those in the OROGOLD Exclusive lines above.

You shouldn’t scrimp when it comes to caring for your skin. Your skin is part of your body, unlike clothes you take off at the end of the day, or makeup that you can simply wash off. You must care for your skin with the best products you can afford. It’s not just a vanity thing — it’s for your health, too.

A high-end price tag is a sign that your ingredients are high-quality and properly sourced. When the ingredients are in their purest form, the more potent and effective your product will be. This calls for a more expensive price.

Another factor that can affect the price of a skincare line is how stringent and challenging they are to manufacture. This means that products with the latest skincare innovations may come at a luxury price. When the formula is more precise and is harder to perfect, the more you have to pay to get your hands on it.

Serums that are encapsulated or facial masks you peel with magnets are just some of the more creative and innovative products you’ll find in the OROGOLD Exclusive collections. Investing in opulent formats like these not only makes your skincare routine more fun, but gives you a unique experience, too.

In a nutshell, investing in high-end skincare products like those in the OROGOLD Exclusive lines assures you that you’re using high-quality products—ones that had a lot of thought and rigorous formulating behind them. You’re only getting the best of the best.

Conclusion

Don’t get us wrong — we’re not skincare snobs. We can appreciate a good eye cream or moisturizing serum that costs less than twenty bucks at the drugstore. But, once in a while, your skin deserves something more rich and lavish, like the products in these OROGOLD Exclusive lines.

Whether you’re targeting fine lines and wrinkles, looking for a way to replenish intensive moisture into your dry skin, or just plain curious about the latest, top-of-the-line technologies in the skincare world, there’s an OROGOLD Exclusive collection suitable for you.

Check out any of the collections above to see how you can pamper your skin and treat it like a queen. Whichever one you choose, know that you’ll be walking away with happy, healthy, glowing skin.

How to Choose the Best OROGOLD 24K Serum for Your Skin

gold 24k serum products

Here at OROGOLD, we love serums. They’re lightweight yet potent, capable of transforming the skin from deep within. As technologies evolve and new ingredients are discovered, we’re constantly developing new and exciting serum formulas, offering you more choice than ever.

In some ways, this is a good thing. However, if you’re new to the world of serums, then we don’t blame you if you feel a little overwhelmed when browsing all of the gold 24K serum products we have available.

Don’t worry, we’re here to help. This guide will talk you through the various skin types and skin concerns out there, helping you to pick out the best OROGOLD 24K serum (or serums!) for your skin.

Dry Skin

Let’s begin with dry skin, an issue that so many suffer with. In addition to patchy, flaky skin never being a good look, those with dry skin also have to deal with the fact that fine lsdcfvc ines and wrinkles become noticeable at a much earlier age.

Fortunately, serums are a great product to combat that pesky dryness, so long as you pick formulas that are deeply hydrating.

Quick and Easy

OROGOLD 24K Nano Ultra Silk Serum

If you’re looking for a serum that’s quick to apply and that’s safe to be used every day, then take a look at the OROGOLD 24K Nano Ultra Silk Serum.

This is a water-less formula, meaning that instead of using water as its base, it makes use of oils. As a result, it’s incredibly hydrating. All of those plant oils also provide antioxidant and healing properties, which is exactly what dry skin needs.

Some of the noteworthy ingredients that you’ll find in this formula include:

  • Sweet almond oil
  • Wheat germ oil
  • Sesame seed oil
  • Sunflower seed oil
  • Seaweed extract

Taking Things Further

OROGOLD products

While the gold 24K serum mentioned above is a great one for daily use, dry skin always benefits from an extra boost. This is what the 24K Rose Gold Age Glow Duo provides.

This serum consists of two products:

  • The 24K Rose Gold Multi-Vital Liquid Powder – this is applied to the skin first. As it’s massaged in, it transforms from a powder to a liquid, which the skin then absorbs
  • The 24K Rose Gold Enriching Serum – this is applied after the powder/liquid has soaked into your skin

This gold 24K serum duo is designed to be used on a weekly basis. It contains a number of star ingredients that give it its hydrating properties, including:

  • Sodium hyaluronate
  • Peptides
  • Niacinamide
  • Rose hip seed extract
  • Resveratrol

Oily Skin

OROGOLD gold 24K serum

Over on the other end of the skin type spectrum, there’s oily skin. With the skin producing so much excess sebum, the pores quickly end up clogged, leading to breakouts.

Serums are key products in an oily skin skincare routine. In many cases, they may even replace a moisturizer, making it important that you opt for a serum that’s deeply hydrating. Of course, any good serum designed with oily skin in mind will also contain ingredients that are able to control and rebalance sebum production, while clearing away any excess oil from the surface of the skin.

With that being said, here’s our 24K gold serum recommendation for oily skin; the OROGOLD 24K Termica Activation Serum.

This serum has been formulated with witch hazel, an ingredient that’s famed for the way in which it helps oily skin. It also contains multiple peptides, seaweed, and sodium hyaluronate to hydrate the skin without clogging up the pores, and DMAE, licorice root, and green tea to brighten and tighten the complexion.

Sensitive Skin

OROGOLD 24K Wild Caviar

Sensitive skin isn’t easy to deal with. It’s quick to react to new ingredients and products, making shopping for skincare a frustrating experience.

When it comes down to it, the more ingredients that you apply to your skin, the greater your chances of developing a reaction. So, you need to look for a gold 24K serum with as short an ingredient list as possible.

Now, hear us out, we’re going to suggest something a little out of the box…

Instead of treating your skin to a new serum, how about going for the OROGOLD 24K Wild Caviar instead?

It may not technically be a serum, but it works in the same way. Even better, it contains just three ingredients, making it ideal for sensitive skin.

As you can tell from its name, wild American caviar is the star ingredient in this product. This marine ingredient fortifies the skin with amino acids, ceramides, vitamins, and antioxidants. It’s fantastic for strengthening and repairing the skinit’ll help to heal that damaged skin barrier that’s contributing to all of your sensitivities!

Dark Spots and Discoloration

OG gold 24k serum

Chances are that you spent many summer of your youth neglecting sun protection. You may not have noticed the effects of this back then (other than the odd sunburn), but UV damage accumulates in the skin. Over time, all of that time spent trying to achieve the perfect tan will come back to haunt you in the form of dark spots and discoloration. Fine lines and wrinkles are usually close behind, but that’s an issue for a different gold 24K serum to target.

When it comes to dark spots, you’ll want to have the OROGOLD 24K Bio-Brightening Dark Spot Solution on your side.

Designed to be used at night, this serum contains multiple skin brightening ingredients, such as vitamins A and C. It’s also formulated with kojic acid, an ingredient that’s comparable to popular skin lightener hydroquinone, but without all of the nasty side effects.

You’ll also find lactic acid in this blend. This alpha hydroxy acid will gently exfoliate your skin and speed up natural skin cell renewal. This helps to fade those dark spots even faster.

Keep in mind that there’s no point using a dark spot serum unless you’re also keeping your skin protected from the sun. If not, the sun will only darken your discoloration, rendering your serum useless. If you don’t yet have a go-to sunscreen that you love using on a daily basis, give the lightweight and non-greasy 24K Skin Tone SPF 30 a try!

Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Fine lines and wrinkles are a very common skin concern. This is why you’ll find a few different gold 24K serum products at OROGOLD that are aimed at targeting this issue.

Daily Plumping

OROGOLD gold 24K serum

A daily serum is important in an anti-aging skincare routine. If fine lines and wrinkles are your main concern, turn to the 24K Kelp Caviar Micro-Bead Serum.

This lightweight blend contains a number of proven wrinkle-fighters, such as:

  • Acetyl hexapeptide-8
  • Acmella oleracea extract
  • Kelp extract
  • Green tea extract
  • Chamomile flower extract

Try following it up with the 24K Kelp Caviar Micro-Bead Cream for maximum benefits. Alternatively, apply another serum over the top! Adding multiple serums into your skincare routine can be very beneficial. However, try to stop at three. After this, the ingredients in each product will be too diluted to have much of an effect.

One gold 24K serum that works especially well with the 24K Kelp Caviar Micro-Bead Serum is the 24K Rejuvenating Skin Serum. The star ingredient in this blend is hemp seed oil. This botanical is known for its hydrating and anti-aging properties. Although already a natural source of vitamins, the hemp seed oil in this formula has been combined with vitamins A, C, and E, all of which will help to tackle the visible signs of aging on your face.

A Weekly Treat

Caviar Elastin Restoration

Your skin will need more than a daily serum if you really want to smooth away those wrinkles and tighten up your complexion. Here at OROGOLD, we recommend adding the 24K Caviar Elastin Restoration to your weekly skincare routine.

Now, this product is pretty special. Open the jar and you’ll see small, black, pearl-like capsules. Each one contains a serum dose. Encapsulating the product allows it to stay potent for longer by preventing exposure to air and light, which is how this serum is able to bring about such significant anti-aging results.

You’ll only need to use one or two capsules on your skin each week, meaning that a single jar of this gold 24K serum will last you for a very long time!

For Special Occasions

OROGOLD syringe

Most wrinkle serums don’t work immediately. After all, it takes time to bring about changes deeper within the skin. It’s usually recommended that you use a new serum for a couple of months before judging whether or not it’s worked for you.

That can be frustrating. Sometimes, instant effects are needed!

A product that’s able to instantly smooth away wrinkles may sound too good to be true, but you’ll find it here at OROGOLD. Feast your eyes on the 24K Rose Gold IV Filler Concentrate.

Not only does this serum immediately reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles, but it also contains ingredients that will help to boost your anti-aging game in the long run.

Dull Skin

OROGOLD gold 24k serum

It’s easy for the skin to take on a dull appearance. Fortunately, this is usually related to surface layer issues, making it easy to treat.

When it comes to brightening the skin, just about every dermatologist out there would recommed vitamin C. Combine it with vitamin A and you’ll really see results – the two work even better together.

You’ll find this combination in the OROGOLD 24K Vitamin C Booster Facial Serum. This formula contains two forms of vitamin C to give your skin a double dose of the antioxidant. You’ll also notice wheat germ oil on the ingredient list. This unique botanical is brimming with a number of skin-boosting nutrients. One of these is zinc, which is known for its powerful brightening effects.

Crow’s Feet

24k eye serum

No matter your skin type, the skin around your eyes is thinner than the skin anywhere else on your face. This is why you’ll notice crow’s feet appearing in the area before you start to develop wrinkles on other parts of your face.

While many gold 24K serum formulas are safe to be used around the eyes, it’s always best to have a dedicated eye serum, such as the OROGOLD 24K Intensive Eye Serum.

This formula contains several peptides, ingredients that are known for strengthening and supporting the skin. It’s also packed with antioxidant-rich botanical extracts that have the ability to turn back the clock on your skin.

This serum can be used daily, making it a great addition to any anti-aging skincare routine.

For Men

24K Sir Volcanic Blaze gold 24k serum

While men can use serum products designed for women without any problems, they don’t tend to be quite as effective as serums created specifically for men.

Why?

Well, many assume that it’s just a marketing ploy, but male skin really is different from female skin. It’s thicker, oilier, and prone to different problems. In order to improve your skin, you really need to look for a product that’s able to deal with the issues that male skin faces.

This is where the OROGOLD 24K Sir Volcanic Blaze comes in. Although created to be used in combination with the 24K Sir Volcanic Mask, this gold 24K serum can also be used as a standalone product.

It’s quite the multi-tasker, able to target a variety of different skin concerns. The list includes:

  • Dry skin
  • Dark spots and pigmentation
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Loose and sagging skin
  • Excess oil production and clogged pores
  • Sensitivities

The men that have tried that gold 24K serum have absolutely loved it. They find that effects are maximized when they combine the serum with other products from the OROGOLD Sir Collection, all of which have been designed with men in mind.

Round-Up

Hopefully, you’ll now have a good idea as to which gold 24K serum products would be best suited to your skin. Whether you’re dealing with dryness and fine lines or oily skin and dark spots, you’ll find an OROGOLD serum that’s capable of helping you.

9 Things You Need to Know Before Using AHAs on Your Skin

Woman applying face serum

AHAs have been all the buzz in the skincare world, and for good reason. Known for their ability to exfoliate and resurface the skin, these acids can give you the radiant skin of your dreams. Before you add an AHA product to your skincare repertoire, though, there are a few things you should know.

What is an AHA?

Woman applying serum to hand

AHA stands for alpha hydroxy acid. They are water-soluble acids derived from sugar, fruits, nuts, or dairy products. AHAs are mainly used to exfoliate the skin by removing dead cells from its surface. The strength of an AHA is determined by the type and concentration of the acid and its pH level.

AHAs speed up the process of shedding dead cells at the skin’s surface, promoting skin turnover. They work by dissolving the “glue” that holds skin cells together and allowing dead skin cells to slough off more easily.

There are a few different kinds of AHAs:

Glycolic acid

Glycolic acid has some of the smallest molecules of AHAs, which allows it to penetrate the skin deeper than other AHAs. This means that glycolic acid is one of the most effective AHAs you can use on your skin. That also means that it’s one of the strongest, so beginners might want to steer away from this ingredient and begin with a gentler AHA.

While glycolic acid is naturally derived from sugar, it is most effective when it is lab-created and optimized for its use in skincare products.

Lactic acid

Lactic acid has larger molecules than glycolic acid and is more gentle on the skin. Because of this, it might take a bit longer to notice the effects of using lactic acid. This acid is great for those who are just beginning their foray into the world of acids.

Because lactic acid is derived from dairy, those with dairy allergies should avoid this AHA.

Mandelic acid

Mandelic acid has even larger molecules than lactic acid and is one of the gentlest AHAs you can use on your skin. It’s great for those with sensitive, easily irritated skin who might want to avoid stronger acids.

Mandelic acid is derived from almonds, so those with nut allergies should steer clear of this ingredient.

Malic acid

Malic acid has larger molecules and penetrates the skin slower. While it’s not considered too effective of an ingredient on its own, it can boost the efficacy of other AHAs. This is why it is often formulated with a combination of other AHAs.

Malic acid is derived from apples, but it’s more commonly found in its synthetic form, which is easier to stabilize.

Tartaric acid

Tartaric acid has almost double the molecule size of glycolic acid. It is used primarily as a pH adjuster in skincare products, making other acids such as glycolic and lactic acid more effective.

Tartaric acid comes from grapes, but, like malic acid, is often used in its synthetic form.

 

What’s the Difference Between AHAs and BHAs?

Woman holding skincare products

Both AHAs and BHAs are used to exfoliate the skin. The difference lies in their solubility: while AHAs are water-soluble, BHAs are oil-soluble. This changes the way they work on the skin.

As water-soluble acids, AHAs work at the skin’s surface to dissolve the bonds that hold dead skin cells together. On the other hand, oil-soluble BHAs are able to cut through oil and penetrate pores to remove dead skin cells and excess sebum. This makes BHAs great for those with oily skin, clogged, pores, or acne. Salicylic acid, the most popular BHA, is also antibacterial, which makes it even more effective at fighting pesky spots.

While neither acid is better, it’s important to understand how each acid works to choose which one is best for your skin.

If you’re wondering if an AHA is right for you, here’s what you should know.

 

You Must Use a Sunscreen

Before you start using an AHA, it’s important to have a sunscreen you know you will use. We can’t emphasize this enough—sunseen is an absolute must when you use an AHA! This is because AHAs make your skin more sensitive to the sun and increase your risk of sunburn. By exfoliating your skin, AHAs reveal newer, smoother skin underneath, which is more susceptible to sun damage. If you’re using an AHA to address the effects of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, or age spots, you don’t want to further damage your skin by going without sunscreen.

How to choose the right sunscreen:

The best sunscreen out there is the one you will use. As long as you’re using a broad spectrum sunscreen of at least SPF 30 everyday, rain or shine, your skin will thank you.

Luckily, modern sunscreens are completely different from the thick, white sunscreens you might remember from your childhood summers. Nowadays, there are a ton of cosmetically elegant sunscreens on the market that will make applying them a treat rather than a chore. You can take your pick from physical or chemical sunscreens, or a combination of the two. Make sure to apply the proper amount of sunscreen (around half a teaspoon for your face alone!) as the last step of your skincare routine and before applying makeup.

 

Start Using AHAs Slowly

Woman looking at skin in mirror

We get it — it can be exciting to start using an AHA, especially because it promises to give you better skin. It can be tempting to start using your AHA whenever you have the chance in hopes of seeing faster results.

Our advice? Don’t.

It’s important to follow the instructions on your AHA product, but generally, it’s good practice to introduce them to your skin slowly. This means using your AHA product only a few times a week to see how your skin reacts. Once your skin acclimates, you can start using it every other day, before graduating to daily use when your skin builds up a tolerance.

 

Start with a Gentler Acid or Lower Percentages

Exploring the world of chemical exfoliation is exciting, and you might be lured into trying stronger AHA products in order to accelerate the process to smoother skin. On top of introducing your AHA product to your skin slowly, we recommend starting with a more gentle acid if you’re just beginning your foray into acids.

If you’re a beginner, here’s how to choose the right AHA:

Luckily, when it comes to AHAs, you have a number of different options. You could start with a gentler AHA, like mandelic acid, or a lower percentage (around 5%) of lactic or glycolic acid.

We recommend starting with a gentle AHA product like Orogold’s 24k Multi-Vitamin Deep Peeling + Mandelic Acid. It’s also formulated with vitamin C, which helps brighten the skin, and bamboo stem powder, which gives it a boost of gentle physical exfoliation. It’s a gentle way to exfoliate dead skin cells and reveal smoother, brighter skin underneath.

If you want to start with a stronger acid like glycolic acid, tread carefully. Glycolic acid is the most effective out of all the AHAs, which is great, but not so great for those just starting out with acids or those with sensitive skin.

 

The pH of Your AHA Product Matters

Unfortunately, when it comes to chemical exfoliation, you can’t just use any old product and expect it to work as advertised. Some products that contain AHAs might not work as intended if they’re not at the right pH. Formulation matters, and the pH-level of your AHA product will determine how effective it is on your skin. Changing the pH also changes the amount of AHA will be absorbed into your skin.

AHAs are most effective with a pH of around 3.5-4. Avoid products with a pH of below 2.5—this may make the AHA too irritating for your skin and disrupt its acid mantle, which is typically around a pH of 4.7

Here’s how to determine the pH of your AHA:

This is where it gets a bit tricky. Most products don’t advertise their pH level, and even if they do, it might not be accurate. Your best bet is to get your own pH strips to test your products’ pH levels. Otherwise, you could try contacting the brand’s representative to ask about the pH of your product.

 

You Can Disrupt Your Moisture Barrier if You Use AHAs Incorrectly

Woman looking at skin in mirror

Using acids is no joke, and if you’re not careful, you could over-exfoliate your skin and seriously damage your moisture barrier, which leads to dry, dehydrated, irritated, and flaky skin. Your skin may look stretched out and crepey, with more pronounced fine lines and wrinkles. Basically, a damaged moisture barrier is not what you want to get out of your AHA.

Here’s what to do if you’ve over-exfoliated your skin:

If you suspect you’ve damaged your moisture barrier from overusing your AHA or using too strong of a product, stop all active use immediately—this includes vitamin C and retinoids, too. Focus on babying your skin for the meantime, like using a watery hydrator or a nourishing serum to bring hydration back to the skin and a soothing moisturizer to lock in moisture and prevent water loss from the skin’s surface.

 

AHAs Can Help Address Signs of Skin Aging

If you’re wondering how to get rid of a few pesky age spots or if you’re bothered by a few fine lines or wrinkles, using an AHA is a great way to reduce their appearance.

AHAs work by exfoliating the top layer of the skin, revealing smoother, healthier, and less pigmented skin underneath. With regular use, AHAs have been found to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation.

There’s one caveat, though: since using an AHA makes your skin more sensitive to the sun, you can actually increase your risk of premature aging from photodamage if you don’t use a sunscreen. You don’t want all your hard work to go to waste, so it’s important to keep your skin protected with a broad spectrum SPF. Using a sunscreen is one of the best things you can do to prevent premature aging caused by the sun, so you should be using one anyway!

However, even AHAs have their limit: AHAs won’t have much of an effect on deep wrinkles. For those, talk to your dermatologist about procedures such as dermal fillers or laser resurfacing.

 

AHAs Can Boost Collagen Production

Not only do AHAs work at the surface of the skin by sloughing off dead skin cells, they also have an effect on the skin’s deeper layer, the dermis. All AHAs have the ability to stimulate collagen production, but none do it as well as glycolic acid, which has been found to increase the production of collagen and fibroblasts in the skin.

As we age, the amount of collagen in our skin decreases, which leads to saggy and wrinkled skin. Boosting the skin’s collagen production helps mitigate the effects of aging and leads to plumper, smoother skin.

So while your AHA smooths your skin at the surface, it’s also working to boost your skin’s main structural protein. This is just one of the benefits that AHAs have over BHAs—they’re great for aging skin because they can treat it in multiple ways.

 

AHAs Can Hydrate the Skin

Woman applying face cream

Unlike BHAs, AHAs are humectants, which means they’re water-loving ingredients that draw water to the skin. This means that on top of exfoliating your skin, they can also hydrate it. No AHA does this better than lactic acid, which helps improve the skin’s natural moisture factor. This quality makes lactic acid great for those with dry or dehydrated skin.

 

AHAs Can Take a While to Show Significant Results

When you use an AHA, your skin may look brighter and more radiant right away, but it can take some time, from a few weeks to a few months, to see a significant reduction in clogged pores, rough texture, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation. Even if you think your skin has plateaued, keep using your AHA—you’ll start to see major differences in a few months.

 

The Bottom Line on AHAs

AHAs are a great way to exfoliate the skin and achieve smoother, brighter, and more radiant skin. When you start using an AHA, remember to go slow and to listen to your skin to avoid over-exfoliation. Always follow product directions to avoid misuse and, most importantly, never forget to wear a sunscreen!

SKIN CARE RULES FOR WINTER MONTHS

Woman playing the snow

The cold and dry temperatures of the winter months, coupled with bitter winds, can really take their toll on your skin. If you want your complexion to remain as healthy as possible during this season, make sure that you are following each of these skin care rules.

 

Make Moisturizing a Priority

The lack of moisture in the air during the winter months means that your skin will quickly dry out, which is why you should be making moisturizing a priority. Not only do you need to moisturize more often, but you also need to be using a moisturizer that is rich, thick and designed for your skin type.

 

Daily Cleansing is a Must

If you are someone that sometimes forgets to cleanse in the evenings, this needs to change in the winter months. While cleansing is important throughout the year, cleansing in the winter helps to prep your skin to receive hydration from the products that you subsequently apply. Without cleansing, your serums and moisturizers will not be able to properly penetrate your skin, leaving it susceptible to winter damage.

 

No Long, Hot Showers

While a long, steamy shower may be exceptionally soothing on a cold winter’s day, hot water will quickly dry out your skin, which is not what you need in the dry winter months. To avoid this, keep showers to no longer than ten minutes, and opt for lukewarm, rather than hot, water. You must also remember to moisturize as soon as you step out of the shower, so that your moisturizer can trap in all of the excess water that has remained on your skin.

 

Don’t Forget the Sunscreen

On an overcast, blustery day, it can be easy to forget to apply sunscreen, but this is something that is still needed, as the sun’s UV rays are just as present in the winter as they are in the summer. Recent studies have shown the incredible way in which the sun’s UVB rays are able to travel through windows, causing an extreme dullness to take over the face with age, making a broad-spectrum sunscreen absolutely necessary every single day.

 

Wear a Lip Balm

Unlike the skin on your face, the skin on your lips does not contain any oil glands, which is why it is so quick to dry out and become chapped. To prevent this from happening, make sure that you use a hydrating lip balm, keeping it with you at all times and re-applying it when necessary.

 

Rather than waiting until the spring to deal with the skin issues that the winter months have caused, following these rules will ensure that your skin remains healthy throughout the season. While you may already follow a few of these, it is essential that you pay attention to all of them, as this is what your skin needs in the winter season.

MOISTURIZING DULL SKIN

Woman applying skin care products

When the skin’s moisture levels are depleted, this usually leads to dull looking skin, which then requires an extra level of care. Rather than just haphazardly slathering on a layer of lotion every day, these tips will help you to ensure that you are moisturizing your skin in the very best way possible.

Exfoliate Before Moisturizing

In order for your moisturizer to be able to properly penetrate into the many layers of your skin, it needs to have a clear path, and this means removing all of the dead skin cells, oils and impurities that build up on the surface of the skin. The best way to do this is by exfoliating, after which your moisturizer, and any other products that you apply, will be so much more effective.

Moisturize Efficiently

On the days that you do not exfoliate, you still need to help your moisturizer to soak into your skin. The best way to prepare your skin cells to receive your moisturizer is by first washing your skin with a damp towel, gently applying lukewarm water before patting off any excess. Make sure that your skin is still slightly damp when applying your moisturizer, as this will prevent any water from evaporating, trapping it into your skin and giving it a much-needed extra layer of moisture.

Face Masks

A face mask is a great way to give your skin a deep boost of moisture, and the added vitamins and antioxidants will help your skin cells in many other ways. When it comes to masks that moisturize the skin, some beneficial ingredients to look out for are antioxidants, vitamins and nutrients that will leave your skin feeling silky and smooth.

Dull and tight skin are signs that your skin is dehydrated, meaning that you need to work hard to counter this as soon as possible, before the problem worsens. By ensuring that your skin cells always contain the optimum amount of water, you will be keeping your skin well hydrated, and will not have to deal with dullness or tightness for much longer.

COSMETIC AND SURGICAL DERMATOLOGY

Doctor Examining Female Patient's Face

Dermatology is the branch of medicine that specializes in the skin, hair and nails, and, just like every other area of medicine, it has a few different subcategories, two of which are cosmetic dermatology and surgical dermatology.

 

What is the Difference Between Cosmetic and Surgical Dermatology?

Cosmetic dermatology deals with aesthetic skin issues while surgical dermatology deals with skin issues that cannot be treated with medication and require specific surgical techniques. Like cosmetic dermatology, surgical dermatology can also involve just the superficial layers of skin, but it can also extend to the underlying layers of muscle or fat.

 

What Can Cosmetic Dermatology Treat?

Cosmetic dermatology can be used to treat a variety of common skin flaws, including acne, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, scars and wrinkles. When it comes to wrinkles, cosmetic dermatologists are able to make use of dermal fillers and injectables, such as Botox, which will relax underlying facial muscles to reduce wrinkles. A cosmetic dermatologist can also treat hair loss issues, as well as perform laser hair removal. While most cosmetic dermatologists limit their practice to procedures that are minimally invasive, there are some that will also offer liposuction and facelifts, as these are also cosmetic procedures.

 

What Can Surgical Dermatology Treat?

Surgical dermatology procedures can include a number of anti-aging treatments, as well as the correction of acne scarring. Surgical dermatologists are also equipped to remove benign growths, such as cysts, fatty tumors, moles and birthmarks. In addition to this, surgical dermatologists also deal with skin cancer, as well as reconstructive plastic surgery, which is often needed after the removal of skin cancers. Thanks to major advancements in the field, the majority of surgical dermatology procedures are minimally invasive, and usually require just local or regional anaesthetic. Recovery periods have also been reduced when compared to recent years, and the effects of each procedure are only improving as surgical techniques become more advanced.

 

Who Can Visit a Cosmetic or Surgical Dermatologist?

Dermatologists see people of all ages, from newborn babies to the elderly. If you already have an idea of the type of procedure you want or will need, then you will be able to choose the appropriate dermatologist yourself. However, if you are unsure, then a visit to a cosmetic dermatologist is advised, as they will then be able to refer you on to a suitable surgical dermatologist if necessary. Even if you do not feel as though you have a specific skin issue, a visit to a dermatologist once a year is recommended, as they not only need to perform an annual skin cancer screening, but will also be able to diagnose any skin conditions that you may not even have been aware of.

Dermatology is a vast field of medicine, and, when you take into account that your skin is your largest organ, this really is no surprise. Whenever you experience a problem with your skin that does not improve with the use of over-the-counter treatments, a visit to a dermatologist is always recommended, as they are likely to be able to provide you with effective, and instant, relief.

REINTRODUCING THE 24K BIO-BRIGHTENING COLLECTION

Bio-Brightening Collection

 

OROGOLD Cosmetics is delighted to announce the relaunch of the improved 24K Bio-Brightening Collection. This skin care set has always allowed you to target skin concerns like hyper-pigmentation and discoloration but now it also offers preventative benefits with SPF protection.

Our skin is exposed to the damaging rays of the sun on a daily basis and can also be subjected to common irritants such as pollution, stress and improper diet. To top things off, we often end up skipping steps in complicated skin care routines, or not caring for our skin at all, after a long and tiring day because it just seems too bothersome. The revamped Bio-Brightening Collection has been designed to not only help you take one step toward reducing signs of aging an uneven skin tone, but also to transform your skin care regimen into something you look forward to as a way of de-stressing after a long day at work.

The high-end ingredients contained in this collection offer your skin a lavish array of benefits to help reduce the look of years of sun damage in order to reveal a glowing and vibrant look. If you’re not sure about how to best use this luxurious collection from OROGOLD, just check out our video, which step-by-step instructions for using the 24K Bio-Brightening Collection and reaping all the benefits that it has in store for your skin.
