Best Sensitive Skin Care Tips for Your Lifestyle

Sensitive skin is a challenge in itself to deal with, and, when you factor in all of the different environmental factors that have an impact on the skin, it can be downright confusing to understand how you should be taking care of your sensitive skin. Whether you are a frequent flyer, spend most of your day in the office, or lead an extremely active life, OROGOLD brings you some of the best sensitive skin care tips for each of your different lifestyle choices.

An Active, Outdoor Lifestyle
Having an active lifestyle, where you spend plenty of time outdoors, is extremely beneficial to your health, but, unfortunately, can play havoc on sensitive skin. Whether it is summer or winter, sensitive skin is much more susceptible to sun damage, and sunscreen needs to be regularly applied. OROGOLD recommends choosing a sunscreen with physical, rather than chemical, ingredients, as these will not irritate your skin. It is also essential that you cleanse your skin after intense exercise, to remove any excess sweat from building up. When it comes to keeping the bugs away, many insect repellents contain DEET, which is a chemical ingredient that can cause sensitive skin to react, so it is best that you stay away from products that contain this. Instead, look for insect repellents that contain picaridin, as this is less likely to irritate and will also keep most insects away.

An Office Environment
Those of you that spend most of your days in an office still need to wear sunscreen, as UV rays are extremely effective at penetrating through glass and damaging your skin. Office environments can also be dry, either due to heating or air-conditioning, so it is important that those with sensitive skin, and even those with other skin types, frequently moisturize throughout the day, to ensure that your skin stays hydrated. A soothing facial oil will also help to lock in the moisture in your skin, and is a great product to use for those who have sensitive skin that is also dry or flaky. Apply this on top of your moisturizer for even greater hydration benefits.

Frequent Travelers
Whether it is for leisure or for work, frequent travel can severely distress sensitive skin, and the most important thing to remember is to keep it hydrated, especially if you travel by plane. Although you may not be able to pack all of your skin care products, the most important ones to remember are your cleanser and moisturizer. OROGOLD advises that you stay clear of any sample products, whether from the plane or in the hotel, and only use products that have been tried and tested on your skin. It is also important to avoid getting a facial if you are on a short break, as your skin will be much more sensitive due to climate and environment changes. For a skin boosting treat that won’t cause any irritation, OROGOLD recommends opting for a massage instead.

Whatever your lifestyle choices may be, it is important to remember that they will always affect your skin. Rather than having to deal with the consequences of this, take the time to prevent any skin irritation and keep your skin as nourished and hydrated as possible, at all times.

Our Favorite Tips for Sensitive Skin

Sensitive skin has special needs, and, when not looked after correctly, will result in irritation, redness, skin reactions and more. OROGOLD brings you some of our favorite tips for looking after sensitive skin, so that you too can have a healthy summer glow.

Keep Skin Care Products Cold
Keeping your skin care products cold is even more important in these summer months, as an increase in blood flow will result in a higher level of heat and sensitivity in your skin. OROGOLD recommends storing your skin care products in the refrigerator, as using products with a cool temperature will help to constrict the capillaries in your skin, reducing redness and irritation.

Know Your Ingredients
Those with sensitive skin are likely to have had the condition throughout their lives, so, chances are that you are already relatively aware of the products that you should be staying away from. Generally, anything that contains a fragrance or parabens should be avoided, as these are often umbrella terms for a variety of different chemicals. OROGOLD advises that you look for ingredients that are natural and soothing, such as aloe vera, chamomile, white tea and coconut oil, as well as opting for product ranges that have been developed specifically for sensitive skin, such as the OROGOLD Lielle 24K Sensitive Skin Collection.

Less is More
Sensitive skin is easily overwhelmed, so, when it comes to your skin care products, you should always remember that less is more. All that you really need is a cleanser, moisturizer and sunscreen, so keep your skin care routine to a minimum. The term ‘less is more’ also applies to the ingredient list that each of your products contain – the more ingredients that it has, the higher the chance of an ingredient irritating your skin, so be sure to check the ingredient list before purchasing a new product.

Be Gentle
Sensitive skin should always be treated with a gentle touch, so make sure to never unnecessarily rub or scrub your skin. After washing or cleansing your skin, be it your face or your body, OROGOLD recommends patting it dry rather than rubbing it.

Be Vigilant About SPF
Sensitive skin can become even more sensitive when it is exposed to the sun, causing irritation and rashes. To protect your delicate skin tissue, those with sensitive skin should be wearing a sunscreen with SPF 30 every day, even during the winter. If you find that most sunscreens tend to cause a skin reaction, OROGOLD suggests trying one that contains physical, rather than chemical, ingredients, such as zinc oxide or titanium oxide, as these are much less likely to irritate. You should also be making use of other forms of sun protection, such as sunglasses and a brimmed hat, to give your face some extra cover.

Although taking the best care possible of your sensitive skin can often seem like quite the challenge, OROGOLD’s sensitive skin tips should help you to prevent any extra reactions or irritations. Always remember to keep your skin as soothed and calm as possible, ensuring that it is always well hydrated and protected from the sun.

Beauty Trend Alert: Face Shaving

Hair removal methods come in many different shapes and forms, from waxing to hair removal creams to tweezing. When it comes to your face, you may believe that shaving is primarily reserved for men, but, as the latest beauty trend goes to show, it can have huge benefits for women as well. OROGOLD takes a look at the latest hair removal beauty trend for women – face shaving.

Where Has the Trend Come From?
Face shaving for women has long since been popular in Japan. Known as kao sori, face shaving is a popular treatment that results in a smooth and soft complexion, and it also allows other skin care products to better penetrate the skin. In the West, face shaving is often known as dermaplaning, and is commonly used to treat certain skin conditions, such as mild scarring, hyperpigmentation and wrinkles.

How Does it Work?
Unlike with most men, who use a shaving foam and shave almost every day, face shaving for women is usually carried out on dry skin. A straight razor is passed over the face in short, sweeping motions, and although a tingling sensation is often felt, the process is painless. After the razor has taken off the short hairs on the face, it then works as an exfoliant, taking off the dead skin cells that build up on the face. The shaving is usually followed up moisturizers and serums, and often a facial massage, and, when done by a professional, the process takes about an hour.

Myths About Face Shaving
Many women believe that if they were to shave their face, they would soon end up with a 5 o’clock shadow, but this is a huge myth. The results usually last two or three weeks, depending on the individual’s skin condition and hair growth. In Japan, it is common for women to undergo face shaving once a month, as part of their regular facial. However, for those of you who already have quite dark facial hair, OROGOLD would not recommend face shaving, as this could cause the hair to grow back darker and thicker.

Can I Try Face Shaving at Home?
The beauty about face shaving is that it is so easy to do it yourself at home. The only tool that you will need is a single blade, straight-edged razor, with a slope towards the razor head for easier maneuvering. Facial and eyebrow razors are widely available, either at your local beauty store or online. To begin with, pull your skin taut and start shaving downwards in short strokes, holding the razor at a 45-degree angle against your skin. Once finished, OROGOLD reminds you to make sure that you apply a layer of moisturizer.

Although face shaving for women may seem like a strange concept, it has so many skin benefits, from exfoliating the skin to boosting collagen production to giving your face a healthy glow. Plus, if you have ever wondered why aging men don’t seem to suffer from the same onslaught of wrinkles as women do, you now know that it could be down to the fact that they have been unknowingly exfoliating their faces on a regular basis for the majority of their lives!

Summer Beauty Problems and Common Fixes

You might love the summertime months where the sun is bright, the winds are calm, and your favorite thing to do is get outside to enjoy all the season has to offer. What about your skin though? Are you having any common summer beauty problems? Here is a list of possible beauty obstacles in the summer and how to fix them fast.

Woman swimming in a pool

Problem: Hair with Swimming Pool Damage
If you are blonde especially, you might have problems with pool water turning your hair that icky greenish color. Or if you are brunette, but color treat your hair then it might be orange or a faded tone. To avoid this, you will want to wear a swim cap when you go into the pool. There are plenty of adorable ones you can buy online, so you don’t look like a little old lady, but more like a 1920’s film star. If you can’t hack the cap, then you need to wet your hair before you enter the pool with tap or bottled water. This helps your hair to absorb less chlorinated pool water since it can only absorb so much water in general. Try to rinse your hair immediately when you get out of the pool since that will also help to rinse the chlorine out of it. Once a week, try to cleanse with a deep cleansing clarifying shampoo, like Frederic Fekkai Apple Cider Vinegar Shampoo ($28) which won’t strip the hair, but will get that layer of pool chemicals out of your hair in a flash.

Problem: Cracked Heels from Flip Flops or Sandals
Our recommendation? Regular professional pedicures every week during the summer. This will eliminate the cracked heel problem, when a pro buffs your feet to total smoothness. You can also work on caring for your feet at home. At night, lather your feet with a heavy moisturizer, even petroleum jelly will work its magic overnight. Then in the morning, exfoliate with a salt-based body scrub, like the OROGOLD Scrub, and using a pedicure foot file, buff away any remaining jagged skin by your heels. Do this at least 2 or 3 times a week to keep them smooth.

Problem: Sunburn!
First you are a bad, bad girl for getting a sunburn in the first place. Just kidding! It happens even when we seem to be vigilant with sunscreen. So when you get home, and feel that telltale warmth creeping over your skin be sure to apply an aloe based after sun product. Make sure that actual aloe is the first ingredient listed, and it’s not just dyed green goop you are putting on your skin posing as aloe vera. This will help to hydrate, and soothe the burn. Apply morning and night until the burn goes away. If you are in some serious pain, then you might want to soak in a lukewarm milk bath to help cool the burn. The amino acids in the milk are calming, in the same way that if you eat a hot pepper, you can kill the burn by taking a big swig of icy cold milk to neutralize the pain.

Problem: Dehydrated Skin
Maybe you are peeling from a bad sunburn, or just are dry in general from time out in the sun. Get in the habit of using a strong moisturizer for your body skin. Try OROGOLD’s 24K Body Butter. This super rich moisturizer feels so thick and emollient, body butter is the perfect name for it.

Woman with frizzy hair.

Problem: Frizzy Out of Control Hair
Summer is notorious for high humidity in most areas across the United States. Luckily for us, the hair care industry is on top of things. There are many products geared towards frizz prevention. Living Proof, the hair care line co-owned by celebrity “Friend” Jennifer Aniston has just come out with a Living Proof No Frizz Humidity Proof Shield ($22). This patented product works even on dry hair to block out the humidity and correct the first signs of frizz. Its frizz-fighting molecule (OFPMA) together with an anti-static agent, UV protectants and soothing emollients help to smooth hair to perfection. It’s the only product you’ll need for frizz this summer.

Summer Nutrition Tips

Barbecues in the sun, an abundance of ice cream and vacation indulgence all make it that much harder to stay healthy in the summer. However, the summer is also when fresh, seasonal produce is more widely available, and our bodies could definitely do with the extra boost of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, to help it cope with the change in temperature and the dehydrating heat. OROGOLD brings you some useful summer nutrition tips to help you to stay healthy during these warmer months.

Light Meals
Lighter and smaller meals are much better for your body than large, heavy ones, and, with the abundance of fresh produce available during the summer, it is the perfect opportunity to lighten up your diet. Summer fruits and vegetables are naturally high in a whole range of antioxidants, as well as fiber to aid digestion, and this is desperately needed by the body in order to cope with the extra stress that the summer months place on it. However, those same fruits and vegetables lose many of their nutrients the more that they are cooked, so OROGOLD recommends eating them raw, or just lightly cooked, as much as possible.

Stay Hydrated
Staying hydrated during the summer months may seem obvious, but it is still something that many fail to sufficiently do. Not only does drinking plenty of fluids keep away the chance of heat stroke, but it also improves metabolism, helps digestion, and plays a huge role in the health of your skin and hair. For those of you who find it difficult to pack in the recommended amount of daily water, or simply just prefer something with a bit more flavor, try adding fresh fruit slices to your bottle of water, as well as some mint leaves, to create your own fruit-infused water. OROGOLD also recommends that fruits and vegetables with a high water content, such as watermelon, cucumber, citrus fruits and spinach, should also be added to your diet.

Potassium-Rich Foods
Due to the extra sweating that the body does during the summer months, your potassium levels can quickly become depleted, impacting your muscles and nerves. To keep this from happening, try to fit in as many potassium-rich foods into your diet as possible. These include bananas, winter squash, sweet potato, white beans and yogurt. OROGOLD suggests using these ingredients to create snacks that you can pack and take with you during the day, so that you are less tempted to purchase processed snacks and more likely to stay as healthy as possible. If potassium loss is something that really worries you, OROGOLD recommends doing some research on cooking methods, as with potatoes, for example, baking them gives you double the amount of potassium than you would get if you boiled them.

Generally, since the fresh produce available during the summer months is so high in nutrients, the body needs less food than it does in the colder months. If you are relatively active during the summer, then it is important to keep replenishing your body’s lost potassium and sodium, as well as to remember to stay hydrated.

Healthy Summer Meals – OROGOLD Reviews

With plenty of fresh produce now in season, and lighter meals being so much more appealing in the heat, it is definitely easier to eat healthily in the summer. Whether you’re a big meat eater, a strict vegan, or just simply picky about what you like, OROGOLD has put together some fantastic ideas for healthy summer meals that you can easily take inspiration from for the next time you cook.

Zoodles with chicken.

Zoodles
Zoodles, which stand for zucchini noodles, are all the rage this summer, as they can be eaten raw or cooked in such a variety of ways. Unfortunately, you can’t create zoodles with a simple kitchen knife, but, if you don’t have the right appliance, a spiralizer is cheap to buy and can be used for other vegetables too. For a quick summer lunch, mix your raw zoodles in with whatever veg you have on hand, and top with some pesto. Zoodles can also be used as a lighter replacement for pasta, mixed into any sort of sauce, or even as a noodle alternative, and is delicious stir fried or cooked into a noodle curry. If you are cooking with zoodles and aren’t sure of the serving size, OROGOLD recommends one zucchini per person.

Fresh pesto in a cup

Pesto
Originating from Genoa, Italy, pesto is a sauce that consists of basil, olive oil, pine nuts, garlic and parmesan. It is extremely simple to make, by just blending all of the ingredients together, and can be created either in a food processor or in a pestle and mortar. The great thing about pesto is that there are so many different alternatives that you can make, depending on ingredients in your kitchen. From a pesto made with arugula and parsley to a pesto made from sun-dried tomatoes and peppers, the options are endless. If you’re not a fan of pesto pasta, OROGOLD suggests trying it as a dip, a marinade, a salad dressing, in a stew, or even simply spread inside a sandwich.

Grilled kebobs.

Grilled Kabobs
There is nothing more satisfying than cranking up the grill on a summer evening and enjoying the aroma of your food cooking on an open flame. Grilled kabobs are one of the easiest dishes to make, whether on a barbecue or on your indoor grill, and can be adapted to suit your tastes. Meat is the obvious choice when it comes to kabobs, but experimentation is always fun, and OROGOLD has some great kabob ideas for you to try. Shrimp that has been marinated in garlic, olive oil and herbs, always taste fantastic when skewered and grilled, as does a mixture of scallop and bacon. For the vegetarians out there, marinated eggplant, bell peppers and halloumi only taste better once they have been charred by the grill.

Summer meals should be light, refreshing, hydrating, and packed with vitamins and minerals to help your body thrive in the warm temperatures. OROGOLD highly recommends that, whenever possible, you shop for produce at your local farmer’s market, as everything will be much fresher, meaning that less work will be needed to make you dish taste absolutely amazing.

Skin Care for Beach Season – OROGOLD Reviews

Now that beach season is here, many of you will be spending more time out in the sun, baring your skin in the latest swimwear. Rather than feeling anxious about any body issues that you may have, take a look at OROGOLD’s skin care tips for beach season, so that you can confidently strut your stuff on the sand this summer.

Preventing Breakouts
Baring more skin means that you will be worrying more about breakouts. Although salicylic acid is great as a spot treatment for existing problem areas, OROGOLD recommends using a product that contains glycolic acid. Most breakouts are caused by dead skin cells that are trapped in the pores by a glue-like substance, and glycolic acid helps to dissolve this, not only clearing current breakouts but also prevent new ones from occurring.

Cellulite
Cellulite is a common body issue, especially as we age. There are plenty of cellulite creams on the market, and although they won’t banish your cellulite for good, they can be effective at reducing the visibility of cellulite. The trick is to regularly massage them into your skin rather than briefly applying a layer, and this will help minimize those dimples.

Woman getting a laser hair removal treatmentq

Unwanted Body Hair
There are only a couple of methods for permanent hair removal, with laser being the most common. However, this takes a few sessions, and you will be required to stay out of the sun for a couple of days after each treatment, which is why it is usually best to do this in the winter. Laser hair removal is also quite costly, so, for a cheaper method, OROGOLD recommends sticking to waxing or shaving. The only downsides to these are that you will need to do it regularly, and take certain precautions to avoid problems such as razor burn and ingrown hairs. For more information, take a look at our OROGOLD article on how to avoid ingrown hairs.

Dry Skin and Small Bumps
If you have areas of your dry skin on your body, it is extremely important that you regularly exfoliate to remove any dead skin cells, as these build up on your skin and give you a dull, dry and rough complexion. They also clog up your pores, which then leads to breakouts, and stops your moisturizing products from properly penetrating the skin and working to their full effect. In addition to helping with dry skin, regular exfoliation will also help to prevent any unsightly bumps from forming, commonly referred to as chicken skin, as these are also caused by plugged pores.

Stretch Marks
Stretch marks are a common issue that can have many women feeling extremely self-conscious, but not able to fork over the big bucks to pay to have them professionally removed. If this is the case for you, OROGOLD recommends using a cotton swab to strategically apply a self tanning bronzing mousse over your light marks, and carefully blend them in.

When it comes to caring for your skin in the summer, always remember that a good self-tan can help to cover up many issues, from an uneven skin tone to the appearance of cellulite. When in the sun, always remember to regularly apply a broad spectrum sunscreen, and don’t forget about protecting your eyes and lips either!

Quick Fixes for Summer Hair Problems – OROGOLD Reviews

The extra heat and humidity that summer brings can quickly result in dry, damaged hair, as well as plenty of other hair problems. To keep your hair looking its best during these warmer months, take a look at OROGOLD’s quick fixes for common summer hair problems.

Protect Your Hair From Chlorine
Often, the most refreshing way to get away from the heat on a scorching day is to jump into the pool. However, swimming pools are filled with chlorine, which can easily, and quickly, damage your hair. Applying oil in your hair before stepping into the water is a great way to protect it, especially if you don’t want to be wearing a tight swimming cap. OROGOLD also recommends that after your swim, you do not use shampoo in your hair, and just rinse it with plain water.

Woman conditioning her hair

Use Hydrating Hair Products
The sun will severely dehydrate your hair, and the best way to put some of this necessary moisture back into it is to use a hydrating shampoo and conditioner. These are packed with essential oils and plant extracts that will nourish your hair and leave it looking healthy, even in the hottest of temperatures. A conditioning treatment is also a useful product to have in your bathroom during the summer, as this is basically the same as giving your hair a facial! OROGOLD suggests applying a hydrating, deep conditioner before lying out in the sun, as this will not only enable the conditioner to penetrate deeper into your hair, but will also protect your hair from the sun.

Woman using a hair spray

Invest in an Anti-Frizz Spray or Serum
Humidity can bring out the worst in hair, and a huge tangle of frizz is not what anybody wants while trying to make the most of summer. A serum that is rich in vitamin E will help to control wavy hair, smoothing away any frizz. An anti-humidity spray is also extremely useful, and should be the last thing that you apply to your hair, after you have already styled it. Rather than applying it straight onto your hair, OROGOLD recommends spritzing some into the air and walking through the mist.

Sunscreen For Your Hair
When exposed to the sun, hair can often lighten, especially if it has been highlighted. Dark haired people aren’t exempt from this either, as the sun can turn their hair brassy, or slightly red. The best way to avoid this is to wear a wide-brimmed hat whenever you’re out in the sun, or even a scarf tied around your hair. However, when that isn’t an option, OROGOLD recommends using a hair product that has UV protection and contains vitamin E and sunflower oil, as this should give your hair sufficient protection.

Depending on where you spend the summer, the heat that your skin and hair will experience will be much more intense than usual. Taking good care of your hair and preventing any problems from occurring is the best way to ensure a carefree summer vacation!

Island Beauty Inspiration – OROGOLD Reviews

The summer months are always the perfect time to update your look, making it a touch more tropical and exotic. Whether you are spending a few weeks at a beachy paradise, or simply staying local for the summer, OROGOLD brings you some island beauty inspiration to get you started.

Simple Beauty
Hawaiians don’t tend to overdo it too much when it comes to makeup, so if you want to replicate this look, allow yourself to be inspired by the colors of the tropics but keep it toned down. Apply a tinted moisturizer to begin with, to give your face some color and keep it looking dewy. Dust a light coating of foundation on your face, applying a lighter concealer under your eyes if necessary. Top this off with bronzer, giving your skin an even glow. Keep your eyes simple, letting them speak for themselves, but add a pop of tropical color to your lips and nails.

Healthy, Textured Hair
The only way to get perfectly gorgeous summer waves in your hair is if your hair is well looked after. Coconut oil is commonly used in Hawaii, as well as the other Polynesian islands, with most people rubbing a small amount into their hair before stepping into the water. This protects the hair from becoming brittle after being constantly exposed to the elements. For an extra-special tropical treat, massage some coconut oil into your hair and onto your scalp, before leaving it to soak in for 20 minutes. Shampoo your hair as usual, but don’t apply any conditioner. You will soon find that your hair is much softer and silkier than ever. OROGOLD also recommends this method for anyone that suffers from dandruff.

Exotic Products
Using skin care products with exotic ingredients is always a great way to bring island beauty into your own home for a pampering session. Hawaii is full of native medicinal plants, herbs and flowers, all of which bring a range of benefits to your skin. Ingredients to look out for include coconut oil, kukui nut oil, pineapple, Kona coffee, noni, tamanu oil, awapuhi and volcanic ash, each of which have different functions and healing properties.

Be Inspired by Hawaiian Tattoos
Tattoos have been around in Hawaiian culture for centuries, and there are many tattoo traditions that have a significant meaning behind them. Whether they simply say ‘ohana’, which stands for family, or are an intricate depiction of native flowers, Hawaiian tattoos are incredibly beautiful. Allow yourself to be inspired by these when it comes to your accessories, makeup and nail art, as this will add an exotically feminine, yet edgy, tone to your look.

Island beauty inspiration comes in all forms, from making use of native ingredients to being inspired by body art. OROGOLD always recommends trying out different styles and looks, and having fun with it, as this is the best way to see what suits you the most.

The Cutest Fancy Sandals for Your Hawaii Vacation – OROGOLD Reviews

With the intense heat that you will experience in Hawaii, it is important to give your feet the opportunity to breathe. OROGOLD reviews the cutest fancy sandals for your vacation in Hawaii.

The Cutest Fancy Sandals for Your Hawaii Vacation

Metallic Leather Sandals
Opting for a metallic leather is a great way to jazz up a pair of flat sandals that would have otherwise been slightly boring, and will add a touch of glamour to even the most casual of looks. OROGOLD loves the Raffia Horsebit Espadrille from Gucci, in a metallic gold, with a braided cord base and a horsebit detailed strap, adding a slightly sporty edge. If you would prefer slightly more height, Gucci also have a pair of metallic silver sandals with a wide, one-inch heel, featuring Swarovski crystals to give you that extra bit of sparkle.

Floral Wedges
Wedges are the best type of heel to wear during the day when you are on vacation, as they give you the most support and, unlike thin heels, will even allow you to walk on sand, something which is inevitable in Hawaii! OROGOLD absolutely adores the range of printed brocade wedge sandals from Dolce & Gabbana, and there is an amazing range of floral prints to choose from. Charlotte Olympia also have a pair of printed floral wedges, with a print that is even more abstract and fascinating to look at. For something slightly more toned down, take a look at the Alice + Olivia espadrille wedge sandals, which feature a more subtle, color block print, and are available at Bloomingdales, either online or in store.

Crystal-Embellished Sandals
Crystal embellishments are always cute to wear, and when you’re somewhere as sunny as Hawaii, your sandals look extra special when the crystals glitter with light from the sun. OROGOLD loves the Rene Caovilla snakeskin sandals, embellished with Swarovski crystals. Snakeskin is very much in trend when it comes to sandals, and you are likely to see snakeskin in every shoe shop. Rene Caovilla have a whole range of jeweled sandals that are worth checking out if you like their style. Dolce & Gabbana also have a printed pair of embellished flat sandals that would really stand out on the beach, and reflect the bright colors of the Aloha state.

Floral Design Sandals
For flat sandals that have flowers winding their way over your feet, take a look at the Rosario sandals from Charlotte Olympia, crafted from a green calf leather that will stand out against all skin tones. The pink flowers add a delicate and feminine touch, and are a great choice for somewhere like Hawaii. As great as flat sandals may be for the day, Hawaii is full of entertaining night spots, and you are likely to want some fancy sandals for a night on the town. OROGOLD recommends the climbing rose sandals from Dolce & Gabbana, which features a four-inch stiletto heel with a rose climbing its way up.

No matter how long you visit Hawaii for, you are bound to be kept busy by all that the state has to offer. These cute sandals will help to pull any outfit together, making packing for your vacation much easier!
