Hydrate…and Then Hydrate Some More

Let’s start our beauty guide with one of the most important holistic tips out there; keeping your skin hydrated. Every living thing on this planet needs a certain amount of water in order to thrive. This includes the human body and its largest organ; the skin.

For some, staying hydrated and enjoying the glowing complexion that comes with this is second nature. Unfortunately, numerous surveys show that the majority of people don’t drink enough water. Not only does this have health impacts but it affects the skin in a big way too. Without enough moisture, your skin cells will look dull and deflated rather than plump and dewy. They’ll also function less efficiently, meaning that everything from acne to aging will become more of a problem.

To change your habits, make a conscious effort to drink eight glasses of water a day. Pair this with topical hydration, making the most of humectants. These are ingredients that bind moisture to the skin, making them ideal for providing an instant hit of hydration. Find yourself a product that combines multiple humectants, such as the 24K Nano Ultra Silk Serum from OROGOLD. Combined with your new water-drinking habits, your skin will look healthier in no time!

Learn How to Read Skincare Labels


If you want to follow the holistic path with your skincare routine this summer, just about every beauty guide out there will tell you that there are certain ingredients that you need to avoid. 

Parabens are at the top of the list. This ingredient group acts as a preservative, helping to enhance the shelf life of a product. However, at the same time, studies show that they’re common irritants. There are also concerns about the link between parabens and cancer. Either way, they’re not good ingredients for a holistic beauty routine! Although many beauty brands still use them, you won’t find parabens in any OROGOLD products.

Harsh acids would also be worth avoiding in many cases. Sure, they may strip away all of the dead cells coating your skin (while also taking parts of your skin barrier with them), but holistic beauty is all about taking the slow and steady approach. Swap your potent acids for gentler alternatives, such as the mandelic acid that’s used in the 24K Multi-Vitamin Deep Peeling + Mandelic Acid.

Turn Your Attention to Your Diet

Are you familiar with the phrase, “You are what you eat”? This is something that your skin couldn’t agree with more. The food that you consume directly influences how your skin cells function, meaning that any skin problems that you’re experiencing could be down to your diet.

You likely already know what you should be eating. Fruits and vegetables contain powerful antioxidants that will rejuvenate your complexion while lean proteins provide building blocks for your skin cells to work with. Healthy fats give your skin the essential fatty acids it needs to stay moisturized and supple.

On the other hand, sugar is known for triggering inflammation and accelerating skin aging. It slowly destroys the protein fibers in your skin that keep it looking smooth and firm. Meanwhile, salt has an incredibly dehydrating effect on the skin. It will counter all of your efforts to bump up your skin’s hydration levels.

Paying attention to what you should be eating, as well as what you shouldn’t, will ensure that you’re properly feeding your skin from within. 

Keep Your Beauty Routine Simple

If you take a holistic approach to skincare, then this means that you don’t need an overly complicated skincare routine. All of the aspects of your life will be aligned in a way that gives your skin everything that it needs.

However, this doesn’t mean that you can go without a skincare routine. You’ll still need one, but it doesn’t need to be anything complex. Instead, stick with the basics.

This means starting with a good cleanser. As mentioned earlier, avoid formulas containing harsh ingredients, like sulfates. Go with gentler, moisturizing products instead, just like the OROGOLD 24K Mousse Cleanser. 

The next essential is a moisturizer. Make sure that the cream you use is suitable for your skin type. If your skin type is oily, you’ll need a lightweight cream that hydrates without clogging pores. The OROGOLD 24K Kelp Caviar Micro-Bead Cream excels at this. For dry skin, you’ll need a relatively thick formula. Look for one infused with oils and plant butters, just like the OROGOLD 24K Deep Moisturizer.

The final step that every beauty routine needs to have? Sun protection. Don’t be tempted to skip this because, as you’re about to find out, it could make or break your complexion…

Sun Protection is Everything

One of the most important tips that we’ll be sharing in this holistic beauty guide is to keep your skin protected from the sun. Not only will this save your skin from aging faster than it should but it will also help to prevent the onset of skin cancer.

When it comes to holistic beauty and SPF, things can get a little tricky. Many choose to go with mineral sunscreens as these products contain fewer chemicals. However, many mineral SPF formulas are notorious for being overly thick and difficult to spread. They also often leave a white cast on the skin, giving it a very pale appearance. 

Chemical sunscreens, on the other hand, are easier to spread and sink into the skin quickly. Unlike mineral sunscreens, which need to sit on the skin’s surface to form a physical barrier against the sun, chemical sunscreens work from within.

When it comes down to it, the key is to find a sunscreen that you personally enjoy using. If you’re trying to keep your skincare routine simple, look for an SPF moisturizer instead of a dedicated sunscreen. A product like the OROGOLD 24K Skin Tone SPF not only functions as a sunscreen but also works as a silky moisturizer, giving you the best of both worlds!

Consider Cutting Back on Caffeine Consumption

Our beauty guide has already discussed the importance of a healthy and balanced diet. However, where does caffeine fit into this? Many can’t function without at least a couple of cups of coffee in the morning, but what is this doing to your skin?

For starters, just like alcohol, caffeine can be quite dehydrating. Studies have also found that caffeine can elevate the cortisol levels in the body. This is also known as the stress hormone. It’s what your body releases whenever you feel stressed. As you’ll find out further on in this beauty guide, stress and the cortisol that comes with it can be extremely detrimental to the skin.

If the rest of your lifestyle is already pretty healthy but you’re a heavy coffee drinker, you may want to consider cutting back on this habit to see if it makes a difference to your complexion. 

Of course, this doesn’t mean that you have to completely go without caffeine. When applied topically, it can still be very beneficial. It’s great for perking up the complexion and giving the skin a glow, which is why you’ll find it in a few OROGOLD products. From the 24K Intensive Eye Formula Cream to the 24K Cryogenic Contour Eye Firming, these formulas will allow you to soak up the benefits of caffeine without any of the downsides.

Don’t Allow Stress to Overwhelm You

So, why exactly is stress so bad for your skin?

Because it raises the cortisol levels in your body. Not only does cortisol cause inflammation, which speeds up skin aging, but it also destroys the protein fibers that give your skin its structure. This, again, causes the skin to loosen, sag, and wrinkle.

Stress also leaves the skin looking dull and lackluster. The increased cortisol ramps up oil production too. This is why many experience a surge in acne breakouts during periods of high stress.

If you want to ensure that your skin is receiving all of the right care, saving it from the harmful effects of cortisol is a must. Of course, de-stressing is always easier said than done. At the height of stress, it can feel like an impossibility!

This is why it’s important to be prepared in advance. Put together a list of stress-busting techniques that appeal to you, from taking a walk in nature to writing in a journal to listening to soothing music. Then, whenever you feel stressed, give one of your stress busters a try. It may not completely eliminate your stress but it should help to somewhat lower your stress levels. This can often be enough to clear up your complexion and leave it looking happier again.

Prioritize Beauty Sleep

Finally, let’s talk about beauty sleep. It earned this nickname because of how skin cells regenerate and repair themselves overnight. Nothing quite beats quality sleep when it comes to caring for your skin!

Quality is the key word here. Your body needs to enter into the deep sleep stage in order for your skin cells to function most efficiently. Try to encourage this as much as possible. Regular sleep/wake times can help, as can ensuring that your bedroom is a comfortable haven. Dim lighting, cool temperatures, and luxurious bed linens can all help to encourage your body to relax and drift off.
