My first experience with OROGOLD was a visit to the store at Century City mall in Los Angeles. When I walked past the attractive cosmetics boutique I was offered a sample of one of the skin creams. I opened it up, used some on my hands and really enjoyed the fragrance and the texture of the cream so I decided to go in and check it out. At first I was a little put off by the aggressive tactics of the employees. I like to browse and take my time while not feeling pressured to buy something right away. However, one man observed my frustration and swiftly invited me into the private VIP salon for a complimentary facial. How could I say no? I laid back in the comfortable leather bed and was educated about all the different options they have for skin care.
OROGOLD products are some of the finest in the world of luxury skin care. OROGOLD Cosmetics fuse east and west as the company combines gold, the jewel of ancient beauty, with the highest quality ingredients produced through modern research. Gold has been used in medicine for thousands of years on record. Everyone from the ancient Egyptian and Mayan cultures to modern Chinese and American civilizations utilize gold in the practice of medicine and healing. The use of gold ranges from the legendary golden face masks of Cleopatra to the golden acupuncture needle of the Far East to the gold enhanced radiation and chemotherapy found in modern medicine.
I was certainly impressed by his knowledge, especially considering he did not know I am a doctor of natural medicine. I liked that he also explained the importance of caring for one’s skin whether or not one is concerned with beauty or vanity. The skin is the largest organ system in the body and uses a lot of the body’s precious resources to maintain its integrity. The less you care for your skin, the harder your body has to work to maintain moisture levels and protective elements. In contrast, one who is already deficient in blood and energy, like many of my patients, will have these resources moved away from the skin in order ensure that all of the vital organs such as the heart and kidneys, have enough supply to maintain vital function. In such individuals, the skin will be more prone to issues such as roughness and dryness.
It is very important to increase consumption of healthy foods and herbs and it is equally important to enhance the look of your skin with nourishing and high-quality products. Our skin or integumentary system is the first line of defense in our body. Maintaining healthy skin helps our body defend against numerous antigens including, bacteria, viruses, fungus, and ultraviolet radiation from the sun. High-quality skin care products can help to seal the integument and lock in the body’s own resources, blood, pigment, moisture, oils, and most importantly vital healing energy or Qi. Oriental medicine teaches that Qi is the greatest resource in our bodies. Qi has several functions and one of the most crucial is our Wei Qi or immune system function. The harder the Wei Qi must work to protect the exterior of our bodies, the less effective it will be in defending our whole system, leading to imbalance, illness, and disease.
In spite of all the benefits offered by a proper skin care regimen with the right products, like those from OROGOLD, the most sought after benefit remains beautiful looking skin. Keeping your skin nourished and healthy will help you look younger and feel more beautiful as you age gracefully. These are the kind of results I was searching for myself, so when I finished my complimentary facial at OROGOLD, I asked the salesperson what would be the best products for me to take home. He recommended the Men’s Collection Facial Cleanser and Daily Moisturizer to use daily and the Vitamin C Facial Serum to use weekly.
