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.

White Bumps Under Eyes: Milia

Have you noticed that you have little white looking bumps under your eyes? Some people call it chicken skin because the bumps look like plucked chicken skin. 🐔 Most likely those little white bumps are milia. They can feel hard or pearly. These bumps are not acne. Milia can occur when dead skin cells become trapped beneath the outer layer of skin. Keratin becomes trapped and builds up. A small benign cyst can form which is the milia. It's a cyst!?! Don't let that word scare you. They are harmless, but unwanted bumps.  They can occur on any area of the skin that tends to be on the dry side. They cannot be squeezed out like a blackhead or pimple because they have no opening. A layer of skin covers them. A hole must be created in them using a needle, then they can be extracted out.

Dermatofibromas

This post is all about dermatofibromas and some remedies to help make them look better and ways hide them. It includes my Amazon Affiliate Links to help you find the products I talk about. Q. I have this brown bump on my leg that won't go away. What can I do about it? A. It could be a dermatofibroma. I see them often on my leg waxing clients. A dermatofibroma is a tan to brown benign raised bump more common in women than men and occur commonly on the legs. The bump feels hard under the skin and can be itchy, tender and easily irritated. A doctor will tell you not to worry about it because it's benign, but it's kind of ugly! Dermatofibromas are also called Benign Fibrous Histiocytomas. They are the result of some sort of injury to the skin such as an ingrown hair or a bug bite.  Be careful when shaving because a dermatofibroma may bleed and become sore if nicked. Don't think you can get rid of it by shaving it off. It will be an awful looking sore and will j

Why does my lipstick change color on my lips?

So, you found a gorgeous shade of peachy nude lipstick.... right on trend. It looks amazing in the lipstick tube but when you put it on, it turns orange within 15 minutes!  It happens to me all the time. Pigments in the lipstick react with the chemistry of the skin and change color. This color shift is due to the pH of the skin. Our skin has an acidic pH of 4.5 to 5.5. It varies slightly from person to person which is why lipstick changes on some people and not others.  The oil, sweat and bacteria on our skin create a protective layer called the acid mantle with its pH of 4.5 to 5.5. The acid mantle can change due to how we treat our skin.  The skin pH can change due to the environment.  The sun, as well as pollution, can affect skin's pH.  What we eat can affect the pH of our skin.  Sweating and cosmetic products can also change pH.  The skin will always try to get back to 4.5-5.5 no matter how we abuse it.  Use gentle pH balanced skin care products, eat a healthy diet w
