The Dos and Don’ts of Mixing Skincare ProductsWhen combining skincare products, it’s important to keep in mind the basics of layering. Work from your lightest products to your heaviest, starting with the fastest-absorbing product first. Generally speaking, the best order is: cleanser, toner, spot treatment, serum, eye cream, moisturizer, oil, SPF. If you’re looking to boost the benefits of your tried-and-true skincare routine, you might try combining some of your products. For example, facial oils can easily be added to your daily moisturizer as well as some treatments and masks. When focusing on moisture, combine humectants with emollients. Humectants like hyaluronic acid draw moisture into the surface layers of the skin while emollients like facial oil help lock it in. Exfoliants like alpha-hydroxy and beta-hydroxy acids work well with moisturizers and SPF but shouldn’t be paired with retinol to avoid irritation and skin sensitivity. If you’re not sure which products are best for your skin type or how to pair them, you can always stop in to your local Yon-Ka partner spa for custom skincare advice.

Moisturizer + Booster
After cleansing, moisturizing is the most important step in your skincare routine. Take your moisturizer up a notch with a facial booster to hydrate, nourish, protect, and lift the skin. Try these boosters from Yon-Ka Paris:View this post on Instagram
- Hydra+ - Give your daily moisturizer a hydrating boost with this lightweight fluid booster for all skin types. It is shown to boost the hydrating benefits of Yon-Ka moisturizer by over 30%.
- Nutri+ - Nourish your skin with the addition of this anti-aging oil comprised of 99% natural ingredients including organic sunflower seed oil, lavender essential oil, and vitamin E.
- Lift+ - Renew your skin’s youthful lift and radiance with this firming booster fluid. The lightweight, water-based formula is gentle for all skin types but perfect for mature skin.
- Defense+ - Deliver a dose of antioxidant protection to your skin with this light facial oil. It boosts the skin’s defenses against environmental damage, especially skin-aging free-radical damage.
Masque + Booster
Not only can you pair boosters with your daily moisturizer, but these products pair well with Yon-Ka Paris masks. Sensitive Masque extinguishes redness and irritation, pairing perfectly with the nourishing power of Nutri+ Booster. For acne-prone skin, pair a clay mask like Masque 103 or Masque 105 with Juvenil, a purifying anti-blemish concentrate. Boosters work best with hydrating masks and clarifying treatments. Avoid adding a booster to intensive exfoliators like Glyconight 10% Masque so as not to diminish the exfoliating properties.View this post on Instagram

Eye Contour + Booster
While overall hydration is important, mature skin can benefit from additional attention to the eye and lip contours. All three of Yon-Ka’s classic contour treatments Alpha-Contour, Nutri-Contour, and Phyto-Contour pair well with Nutri+ booster to nourish and repair or Lift+ to tighten and firm. Apply the desired amount of contour treatment to the back of your hand then add a small pump of booster. Blend with a fingertip and apply gently to the eye and lip contours only, avoiding the eyelids.View this post on Instagram

Simply choose two formulas, mix them together, and apply to the eye and lip contours after cleansing and moisturizing. Try one of these contour treatment pairings:View this post on Instagram

If you struggle with oily skin and frequent breakouts, a clarifying combination of skincare products might be just what you need. Crème PG is a purifying, mattifying, protective cream for oily skin that minimizes pores and balanced sebum production. Paired with Emulsion Pure, a water-based emulsion, this treatment helps calm inflammation and reduce breakouts, leaving the skin fresh and healthy.View this post on Instagram
Body Cream + Dry Oil Spray
A daily skincare routine shouldn’t be focused only on the face. In addition to the neck and décolleté, your entire body deserves hydrating moisture. Yon-Ka body creams and lotions deliver hydrating moisture while addressing specific skin concerns like aging, and uneven skin tone. Like facial oils, dry oil for the body maintains hydration and helps keep the skin healthy and radiant. Try these body cream and dry oil spray pairings from Yon-Ka Paris:View this post on Instagram
