Lotion YonKa, It's a toner.

Let's talk about one of my favorite skin care products,

 Lotion YonKa. 💖

It's literally a magic potion!!!

I'll tell you all about it and give you some of my Amazon Affiliate links so you can do some shopping. 
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 YonKa to see why the product is so healing and balancing. 

All of the essential 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 YonKa besides using it as a toner:

Freshen your skin 

Freshen your face throughout the day to remove excess oil or add moisture. Oily skin: mist your face and pat it dry with cotton or a tissue to blot  away excess oil. Dry skin: mist your face and let it air dry.

Set your makeup

Give your freshly applied makeup a quick mist to set your it and give it a dewy look. Use either formula according to your skin type.

Freshen makeup 

Freshen up makeup that has gotten dry looking after hours of wear with a quick mist. Use either formula according to your skin type.

Use it on sunburn

Spray YonKa Lotion directly on the sunburn or spray it on a cotton pad to use as a compress. Either formula is beneficial but the glycerin in the sensitive formula maybe extra beneficial for sunburn treatment. Apply repeatedly throughout the day.

Spray it on bug bites and stings 

The healing soothing properties of YonKa Lotion are perfect to soothe, speed healing and reduce itch. You can also make a Lotion compress for bug bites. Spray the Lotion on a cotton pad and apply to the bite or sting. Use either formula for insect bites and stings. I prefer the oily skin formula for bug bites due to the slightly higher concentration of essential oils.

Use it to soothe skin irritations

You can spray it or make a compress to sooth rashes, eczema and other skin irritations. Use either formula according to your skin type.
