The ancient Greeks contributed many things to modern society, but one of the most important is the myths and legends of gods and goddesses on top of Mount Olympus. These exceptional deities were often the patrons of different parts of existence, ranging from the arts to the sun. They have inspired planet names, sculpture and art.
Greek goddesses were often viewed as equally powerful as the gods and had their own special place in ancient myths, whether they were vengeful, loving or helpful. Everyone wants to indulge her inner goddess, and the best way to do that is through luxurious pampering.
ATHENA. The daughter of Zeus, legend has it that this goddess of wisdom was born straight from Zeus’ head. She was the patron goddess of Odysseus in Homer’s ancient stories of The Iliad and The Odyssey and is also known as a goddess of warfare as well as intelligence. In writing, there are many references to her eyes, which are gray and considered bright and keen looking.
Inspiration: With eyes, the goal is to reduce visible puffiness that gives you the appearance of tiredness and age. Orogold’s 24K Exclusive Dark Circle Eye Solution will keep your eyes looking keen and youthful just like Athena’s.
ARTEMIS. The virgin goddess Artemis is often associated as the protector of the hunt, children and animals. The twin sister of Apollo, patron god of the arts, she is often associated with the moon as Apollo is with the sun. She is often referred to as the protector of the young and innocent, caring for the environment around her and presiding over childbirth.
Inspiration: As Artemis was often associated with night and the moon, protecting your skin overnight is just as important as during the day. During the night your skin repairs itself, give it some help with Orogold’s Tèrmica® Facial Expression Night Repair. You’ll awaken to a complexion as soft and lovely as babies’ skin.
APHRODITE. Possibly one of the most well known goddesses, Aphrodite is the goddess of love, known in Roman mythology as Venus. She was said to be born from the sea, coming to the shores in a clam shell. Although she was married to the god Hephaestus, she had many lovers, both mortal and god, ranging from the god of war Ares to the beautiful human Adonis. It is said that Aphrodite was well known for having an enchanting smile that would lure men to her.
Inspiration: Protect your smile from laugh lines so you can enchant like the goddess of love. Use a hard working serum like Orogold’s 24K Bionic Complex Serum for maximum results in reducing the appearance of facial deep lines.
DEMETER. The goddess of the harvest, Demeter is often associated with the changing of the seasons. Her daughter, Persephone, became queen of the underworld when Hades kidnapped her, which caused Demeter to plunge the world in winter. Demeter is said to have made an exchange for Persephone’s return, allowing her to return to Hades four months out of the year in exchange for the return of the harvest.
Inspiration: As a harvest needs the rain, your skin needs moisture in order to help prevent wrinkles and stay young looking. Quench your skin with the Orogold 24K Deep Day Moisturizer Cream and watch as dry areas disappear.
HERA. Queen of the gods and goddesses, she was married to Zeus, king of the gods. However, her marriage was rather unhappy, as Zeus had many adulterous affairs, but Hera was shrewd, often undoing many of Zeus’ plans. She eventually became associated with fertility and marriage, and is also known for aiding the Argonauts in their quest for the Golden Fleece.
Inspiration: As she aided the Argonauts in their golden quest, give your skin the luxury of 24K Gold. Indulge yourself with Orogold’s 24K Deep Tissue Rejuvenation Mask for the ultimate anti-aging and nourishment experience.
