Lotion Yon Ka, It's a toner.

Let's talk about one of my favorite skin care products, Lotion Yon Ka.
Yon Ka lotion
It's not a lotion at all. It is an alcohol free healing mist used as a toner after cleansing your face. Spray it on after cleansing your face and lightly massage or pat it in. Apply your moisturizer right over it. The smell is divine! Clean and fresh, not perfumy. It is extremely soothing and balances skin conditions.

There are two formulas, one for normal to oily skin or combination skin (it's white) and one for dry and sensitive skin (it's pink). Both contain YonKa's signature blend of essential oils which are lavender, geranium, rosemary, cypress and thyme. 

Essential oils are oils extracted by distillation or cold pressing from various parts of a plant, the leaves, stems, flowers, bark, roots, seeds or peels. The oils are aromatic and retain the chemical composition of the plant. The healing plant chemicals in the oils have various properties such as, anti inflammatory, anti oxidant, and anti bacterial. Essential oils are used in many cosmetic products and are often used for massage. Oily skin people, don't be afraid that the essential oils will make you more oily. They won't. Some have astringent properties that actually help control oil. 

Let's look at some of the properties of the oils in Lotion Yon Ka to see why the product is so healing and balancing. All of the oils listed are healing.

Lavender- reviving, regenerative, soothing, anti microbial. Lavender is excellent for healing burns.

Geranium- anti inflammatory, antiseptic, regenerative

Rosemary- antiseptic, antimicrobial, regenerative

Cypress- tonic, astringent,antiseptic. Cypress is great for oily skin.

Thyme- anti microbial, antiseptic, stimulates circulation 

There are many other ways to use Lotion Yon ka besides using it as a toner:

Freshen your skin during the day. Oily skin: mist your face and pat it dry. Dry skin: mist your face and let it air dry.

Set your makeup. Give your makeup face a quick mist to set your makeup and give it a dewy look.

Freshen makeup that has gotten dry looking after hours of wear with a quick mist.

Use it on sunburn. Spray it directly on the sunburn or spray it on cotton pads to use as a compress.

Spray it on bug bites to soothe and reduce itch. You can also make a compress for bug bites.

Use it to soothe skin irritations. Again, you can spray it or make a compress with it.
