Your morning skincare routine sets your skin up for the day, giving it what it needs to keep itself feeling safe and strong when faced with all of the environmental aggressors that each day throws at it. This is why it’s so important to get your morning routine right. Your skin needs specific products and ingredients in order to feel this way. 

At the same time, nobody wants an overly long and complicated routine to follow at the start of each day, especially if your mornings are already usually rushed. Knowing how to give your skin what it needs without spending too much time on it can be tricky. However, this is what OROGOLD is here to help you with. If you’ve been looking for a way to give your 2024 skincare routine a boost, read on as we talk you through the best steps to follow to get your skin glowing all day long.

Begin With a Gentle Cleanser

While some people choose not to use a cleanser in the morning, this is one of the most essential steps that you should be following. Sure, if you cleanse in the evenings and then head straight to bed, your face won’t have much opportunity to come into contact with dirt and pollutants from the outside world. However, sebum and dead skin cells will still build up on your face while you sleep. Meanwhile, any bacteria that’s lingering on your bedding will likely transfer over onto your face.

If you want to rock a fresh and clear complexion throughout the day, then your 2024 skincare routine should always begin with a cleanser. Of course, you don’t want your skin to feel irritated either, especially if you’ve already used a powerful cleanser the night before. So, make sure that you pick a gentle formula for the mornings, such as the OROGOLD 24K Mousse Cleanser.

This cleanser, which is loved by all skin types, lathers up beautifully. However, unlike a foaming cleanser, it won’t strip your skin dry. This is ensured by the numerous moisturizing ingredients in this sulfate-free cleanser, from shea butter to moringa seed oil to organic glycerin. Give your face a once-over with this in the mornings and your skin will immediately look refreshed and perky.

Apply a Toner

While you may be tempted to skip the toner in the morning, especially if you don’t have much time, this is a product that only takes a few seconds to apply yet can be transformational for your complexion.

How? Because not only will a toner remove any residue left behind from your cleanser, but it will also rebalance the pH level on the surface of your skin. This goes a long way in preventing the appearance of many visible skin concerns. It will also leave your skin feeling more receptive to the other skincare products that you apply. Add a toner to your 2024 skincare routine and you’ll likely start to see better results from the other products that you’re using.

Some toners serve a few additional purposes too. The OROGOLD 24K Purifying Toner, for example, is incredibly hydrating. It also contains ingredients that calm the look of redness and inflammation while helping to minimize the appearance of enlarged pores. You can either apply some to a cotton pad and swipe this over your face or, if you need to save some time, simply spritz it directly onto your face before moving on to the next step of your skincare routine.

Pat on an Eye Serum

If you’re trying to save time in the mornings, then this is a step that you could potentially skip. However, if you’re already struggling with your eye area, be it because of the appearance of fine lines, dark circles, puffiness, or anything else, an eye serum should be an essential part of your 2024 skincare routine. 

There are plenty of eye serums out there, but the 24K Intensive Eye Serum is particularly well suited for morning use. For starters, it’s extremely hydrating. Between sodium hyaluronate, glycerin, aloe vera, and peptides, it will immediately leave your eye area looking fuller and plumper. The peptides will also make your skin cells feel stronger and more resilient. This is vital since the eye area is much more delicate than the skin on the rest of the face.

This eye serum has been designed to be a multi-tasker, which is why it will also help with the visibility of dark circles and puffiness. It contains licorice root extract and vitamin C. Both of these are superstars at lightening and smoothing the look of the skin. 

Apply a Vitamin C Serum

During the day, your skin has to deal with so many environmental aggressors. UV radiation, pollution, and a number of other irritants all cause oxidative damage in the skin. In the short run, this triggers inflammation and, in the long term, it will accelerate the skin aging process. The more oxidative damage your skin undergoes, the sooner you’ll notice the development of fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots.

To prevent the visibility of all of these problems, your morning skincare routine should be focused on neutralizing the appearance of oxidative damage before it has the chance to really take its toll on your complexion. How can you do this? With antioxidants. There are thousands out there to choose from, but vitamin C is undeniably one of the best. Multiple studies have confirmed how this ingredient is capable of reducing and preventing the appearance of oxidative damage, especially when it’s combined with vitamin E. 

This is why the next step in your 2024 skincare routine should be to apply a vitamin C serum. Ideally, pick one that also contains vitamin E, just like the OROGOLD Vitamin C Booster Facial Serum. This formula takes things further by also incorporating vitamin A, bringing together three of the most powerful antioxidants around. It will keep your skin feeling safe all day while enabling it to defend itself against the appearance of oxidative damage.

If You Have Time, Layer on a Hydrating Serum

Antioxidants aren’t the only ingredient group that your skin would benefit from in the mornings. Humectants are another, with these ingredients loved for their moisture-binding properties. They’re exceptionally hydrating and will help to ensure that your skin looks plump and dewy throughout the day.

There are several humectants out there that are used in skincare products, with sodium hyaluronate and glycerin being two of the most effective. The best way to saturate your skin with these compounds is with a serum. Thanks to how lightweight a serum is, it will quickly sink down into your skin. This allows it to provide an instant moisture boost.

For best results, look for a serum that not only contains sodium hyaluronate and glycerin, but also includes other humectants. The 24K Termica Activation Serum from OROGOLD meets the mark perfectly. In addition to those two humectants, it also boasts collagen, peptides, and seaweed extract, all of which also have moisture-binding properties. Slather this onto your skin in the morning and you’ll look radiant for the rest of the day!

Use an Eye Cream


Now that you’ve applied your serums, it’s time to turn to the heavier products in your 2024 skincare routine. As always, start with the lightest one, meaning that your eye cream should always be applied before your face cream.

Do you really need to use an eye cream? Unlike some of the other steps that we’ve shared, an eye cream isn’t quite as essential, especially if you’re also using an eye serum. However, if you have any visible skin concerns around your eye area, a good eye cream is definitely worth investing in.

While some eye creams are targeted toward specific skin issues, others, like the 24K Intensive Eye Formula Cream, can help in multiple ways. The caffeine in this formula will immediately perk up your complexion. It’ll leave your eye area looking wide awake, even if you’ve just had a late night. Meanwhile, aloe vera hydrates, peptides leave the skin feeling stronger and more resilient, and licorice root extract will lighten the visibility of dark circles and shadows. You’ll also find a few antioxidants in this formula to help keep your eye area feeling protected against oxidative damage.

Moisturize and Protect

The final step in your 2024 skincare routine should be to moisturize. However, since you’re following this routine in the morning, sun protection needs to be taken into consideration too. One option would be to treat this as two separate steps; apply a moisturizer and then layer a sunscreen over the top. However, if you want to save some time, an SPF moisturizer will get the job done equally well.

For adequate protection, look for a formula that provides SPF 30, just like the OROGOLD 24K Skin Tone SPF 30. Unlike many of the other SPF moisturizers out there, this one is lightweight and non-greasy. It disappears into the skin quickly, leaving no sticky residue behind. At the same time, it provides the feeling of long-lasting moisture. It also brings together some powerful antioxidants, which will boost how protected your skin feels when faced with UV radiation.

One thing to keep in mind is that a single application of this moisturizer, or any sunscreen, isn’t going to keep your skin protected all day. Instead, every sunscreen out there will only provide protection for two to three hours. After this, you’ll need to apply another layer of product to top up your skin’s defenses. Don’t be tempted to forgo this if you’re spending the day indoors or if the weather is cloudy. UV rays penetrate through both glass and cloud, meaning that year-round protection is needed at all times if you want to keep your skin looking healthy.
