Eczema, or atopic dermatitis if you’re feeling formal, is a hereditary condition that prevents skin
from healing as well as it should, resulting in sensitivity and inflammation. While incurable, it’s not dangerous in itself unless it starts blistering and weeping, which is a solid indicator of it being infected. About 1 in 10 Americans suffer from eczema, and depending on its severity, may have to go to extraordinary lengths to manage it. Many people find it exacerbated by common things like soap, coarse clothing, heat and non-hypoallergenic cosmetics. Relentlessly avoiding these can quickly become difficult and time-consuming, making eczema one of those conditions that worms its way into large parts of your life. While the direct effects are definitely unpleasant, the true cost of eczema comes from all the ways it indirectly affects people.
Because exertion can make it flare up, adults with eczema tend to get far less exercise than their uninflamed counterparts. It’s also thought to take an emotional toll all the way from early childhood, when it usually emerges. It’s speculated that this contributes to eczema sufferers being far more likely to smoke
and drink heavily. All these incidental...

As you might have heard, the largest organ in a human body is the skin. The average adult carries around about 8 pounds of skin covering 22 square feet. But far from being a simple way of covering up one’s insides, skin
is actually a very complex multi-layered thing which performs a variety of important tasks. OROGOLD Cosmetics helps you to get to know your skin.
The outer layer is called the epidermis, and it’s the main line of defense against injury, bacteria, ultraviolet radiation and anything else the world throws at you. To this end it’s incredibly strong for something so thin, and heals remarkably quickly compared to other body parts. It also has to act as a gatekeeper, by letting certain things in and out, while blocking others. It manages this by being acidic enough to dispose of most pathogens and tight enough that only the smallest particles can pass through.
The main thing that needs to get through the epidermis is water
. In order to maintain body temperature, there’s always a bit of water evaporating off you. Sweating is just the same...

One of the most common reasons people give for smoking is that it helps them lose weight. The theory is that smoking suppresses appetite, so you eat less. It also increases energy expenditure, which means smokers burn calories slightly faster. But on the whole, there’s a rapidly expanding body of evidence showing that by itself, smoking actually makes people gain weight. This is because cigarettes contain a cocktail of chemicals with a number of effects. While some of the ingredients
promote weight loss, others actually make a hefty contribution to weight gain.
OROGOLD has reviewed research investigating body weight in smokers and found similar results in several studies. Heavy smokers - a pack a day or more - tend to weigh more than non-smokers, but occasional smokers tend to be slimmer than those who abstain. Initially, it was thought that this was on account of heavy smokers usually having worse diets
, lower income (which is correlated with weight-gain) and getting less exercise. However, when all these factors were accounted for, heavy smokers were still dis-proportionally overweight.
That’s why scientists decided...

The History of OROGOLD
OROGOLD was established to provide consumers with cutting edge skin care with an emphasis on anti-aging and a luxury experience. The anti-aging industry is growing by leaps and bounds whether it is in scientific technology being developed to extend life or skin care products to improve the appearance of aging skin. Seeing the consumer demand for products that help them retain a youthful appearance inspired the formation of the OROGOLD brand. Fusing the goal to provide the latest in skin care advances with a customer experience that goes above and beyond led to the use of gold as our signature ingredient. All OROGOLD products are infused with the finest gold imported from Italy.
Gold has been synonymous with beauty and luxury since its discovery. Although it is not known for certain when gold was first discovered, it is presumed to have been discovered by early hominids. There is mention of gold in the Bible which is believed to have been committed to paper beginning nearly 3500 years ago. Ancient Egyptian documents and inscriptions contain references to gold mining, geology and metallurgy dating back to at least to 3100 B.C. Ancient royalty was enamored with the metal; Cleopatra was rumored to have slept in a gold mask every night. This was just the beginning of a mystical journey to the present day when gold is still considered a valuable and revered metal. Infusing the products of a world renowned skin care company with this treasured metal is a suitable combination.
