Have you ever felt overwhelmed when shopping for skincare products? With so much choice out there, this is hardly surprising! Chances are that several products have already caught your eye, so how do you decide which ones to buy?

Well, it goes without saying that you’ll want all of your skincare products to be able to work wonders on your complexion. However, in order for this to happen, you’ll need to spend some time matching your skin’s needs to the right formulas. Everyone’s skin is different, meaning that what works for one person may not work for the next, making it important to really listen to your skin when building a skincare routine.

So, where do you begin?

Right here! Read on as OROGOLD shares some top tips to help ensure that you always make the right choice when treating yourself to new skincare products.

Start With Your Skin Type

As you’ll soon learn, there are a few factors to consider when choosing new skincare products. However, your skin type is the most important. This will tell you so much about what your skin needs, along with which products would be suitable for meeting those needs:

Dry Skin

24K Deep Moisturizer

Many make the mistake of thinking that dry skin lacks water. While this may sometimes be the case as well, dry skin is dry because it doesn’t produce enough sebum. This is the skin’s natural oil. It conditions and lubricates the skin’s surface while also helping to trap moisture in.

With dry skin lacking in sebum, this tells you that the best skincare products for you would be formulas that can compensate for this. You’ll need hydrating formulas that are also rich in fatty acids. The OROGOLD 24K Deep Moisturizer, for example, boasts a blend of shea butter and vitamin E. They’ll hydrate and moisturize your dry skin while strengthening the feel of your skin’s protective barrier.

Oily Skin


Oily skin refers to skin that produces too much sebum. This gives the skin a shiny finish while pores also tend to be more noticeable because of all of the extra oil they’re secreting. With the skin often ending up overloaded with excess sebum, it doesn’t take much for the pores to become clogged. This usually triggers an acne breakout.

If your skin type is oily, you’ll need skincare products that allow you to care for your skin and give it the nutrients that it needs, without clogging up your pores. You should also seek out a good exfoliating product. This will clear away any blockages that begin to form in your pores, significantly preventing the appearance of breakouts. The OROGOLD 24K Multi-Vitamin Deep Peeling + Mandelic Acid is revered for how it keeps oily skin looking clear, fresh, and blemish-free!

Combination Skin


Combination skin features elements of both dry and oily skin. Most people will have dry cheeks but an oily T-zone, although the dry and oily ratio varies between individuals. 

When it comes to the skincare products that you use, you have two main options. Your first is to invest in two sets of skincare products. The first should be suitable for dry areas and you would use those on the dry parts of your face, and the second should be for oily skin. You would apply these solely to the oily areas of your face.

However, that can be a hassle. It can sometimes be much simpler to instead opt for skincare products that are safe for use on both oily and dry skin, like the 24K Rose Gold Age Glow Duo from OROGOLD. This way, you can use them all over your face without having to worry about causing problems.

Sensitive Skin

24K Purifying Toner

Have you ever found that your skin reacts to products that promise to be kind to sensitive skin? This is because sensitivities vary greatly between individuals. As a result, there’ll need to be some trial and error involved when it comes to finding products that will work well on your skin. Ideally, you need formulas that keep your skin feeling strong and supported while also soothing the appearance of redness and inflammation.

The OROGOLD 24K Purifying Toner would be a great one to try. With extracts from cucumber, aloe vera, and chamomile, it will leave your skin feeling calm and relaxed. 

Normal Skin


If your skin type is normal, this gives you much more flexibility when it comes to the skincare products you use. You’ll be able to experiment with a wider range of skincare products. 

However, be careful if you use a product that has been designed specifically for a different skin type. For example, if you use a cleanser that has been formulated for oily skin, you could end up interfering with how your skin is currently producing just the right amount of sebum. Do this for too long and your normal skin could turn dry. Instead, you’d be better off with a cleanser that can safely be used on all skin types, such as the 24K Mousse Cleanser from OROGOLD.

Consider Your Other Visible Skin Concerns

24K Intensive Eye Serum

Prioritizing your skin type means that you’ll be focusing on your skin’s needs. However, now that that’s out of the way, let’s talk about your wants. Most people find themselves wishing that they could improve their skin in some way, and the skincare products that you use should be geared toward helping you reach that goal.

Say, for example, you’ve noticed the crow’s feet around your eyes becoming more noticeable. If you wanted to do something about this, then you would need to look for skincare products that not only work with your skin type but are also capable of reducing the appearance of creases around the eyes. The 24K Intensive Eye Serum and the 24K Intensive Eye Formula Cream would be a great duo to invest in!

On the other hand, if your skin has been feeling tired and dehydrated, you’ll need skincare products capable of perking your complexion up. A highly concentrated face mask, like the 24K Nano Hydra Silk Mask from OROGOLD, would be a great addition to your skincare routine. This is a leave-on mask, which gives it even more time to saturate your skin with moisture and nutrients.

Understand Ingredient Lists

Have you ever wished that skincare ingredient labels were easier to decipher? Unfortunately, with strict rules to follow, this is unlikely to change. However, the good news is that these labels, although they may seem complicated at first, ensure that skincare brands are being transparent about what they’re using in their products. It’s worth taking some time to get to know various ingredients – those labels will immediately make a little more sense after that:

Ingredients to Avoid

Start by learning about which ingredients to avoid. Parabens are a controversial ingredient group that many choose to avoid because of their potential link to breast cancer. Certain alcohols are also not very good for the skin. They’re a great preservative but they can be extremely drying. Again, this is where understanding your skin type comes in handy. While oily skin may be able to get away with using skincare products containing alcohol-derived preservatives, those with dry or sensitive skin may really struggle with this.

Ingredients to Look For

24K Vitamin C Booster Serum

Once you know what to avoid, spend some time identifying ingredients that would benefit your skin. Not all ingredients should be used on every skin type, although vitamin C is one that everyone would benefit from. This antioxidant brightens, smooths, and hydrates the complexion. This is why vitamin C serums, like the 24K Vitamin C Booster Facial Serum, have become so popular!

Sodium hyaluronate is another ingredient that just about everyone should be using. It’s a lightweight humectant, loved for how it binds moisture to the skin. This enables it to immediately plump up the look of the skin, giving it a brighter and more radiant glow. These fast-acting hydrating qualities are why you’ll find sodium hyaluronate in several OROGOLD products, including the 24K Termica Activation Serum.

Incompatible Ingredients

It can also be beneficial to check that the skincare products you’re using are compatible with each other. This is where many people often run into problems. Make sure that you aren’t unintentionally combining multiple acids or contradictory active ingredients. It’s an easy mistake to make but is one that could have devastating consequences for your skin. 

Don’t Be Swayed By the Hype

Every now and then, a skincare product gets extremely hyped up. Whether due to a celebrity endorsement, a viral social media ad, or anything else, it suddenly becomes the ‘it’ product that everyone wants to buy.

It’s so easy to be swayed by this…but try to resist! Just because a product looks good and sounds good doesn’t mean that it’s going to benefit your skin. Instead, before handing over your hard-earned cash, follow all of the guidelines that we’ve detailed above to make sure that it’s a product capable of working well with your skin type and skin concerns.

Always Patch Test

Sometimes, even though a product may theoretically seem to be a perfect match for your skin, it could still cause a reaction, no matter your skin type. This is why it’s so important to always patch test new skincare products before you apply them to the entirety of your face.

Fortunately, patch testing is easy. Simply apply a small amount of your new product to a small patch of skin on your inner arm. Wait for 24-48 hours, checking to see if your skin has reacted in any way. If it hasn’t repeat the patch test but on a patch of skin on your face this time. If, once again, all is good, then you’ll know that the product is safe to be applied. However, if your skin reacts in any way, put a pause on that product and try to figure out why that reaction has occurred.
