If you’ve never been one to follow a daily skincare routine, now’s the time to start. Good skin is not just a matter of genetics – it’s a matter of habit. Starting a skincare routine doesn’t have to be complicated. What it really comes down to is knowing your skin type and choosing the right products. Yon-Ka Paris offers products and treatments for all skin types and every skin concern under the sun. Check them out to start building your skincare regimen.
An Introduction to Yon-Ka Paris
The name Yon-Ka comes from fusion of two complementary words:
- Yon – Representing energy and perpetual renewal
- Ka – Invoking the subtle healing energy inherent in all beings
The harmony these two words represent is the driving force behind Yon-Ka Paris and everything we do. Our story started with a family of visionary entrepreneurs who were fiercely passionate about the natural world. Ernest, Charles, and Cécile Mühlethaler combined their expertise to launch the first Yon-Ka laboratory in 1954. Catherine, an aesthetician, and Francoise, a biochemist continue their family legacy today, and are the sister-owners of Yon-Ka Paris.
For over 65 years, Yon-Ka has been on the forefront of cutting-edge aromatherapy and phytotherapy, merging the realms of botany, science, wellness, and beauty to deliver a unique and luxurious experience through each and every one of their products.
The Top 7 Products for First-Timers
Whether your skin is dull and moisture-deprived, inflamed and aggressed, or prone to breakouts, Yon-Ka Paris has the perfect solution. Before you go piling on the products, however, it’s best to start with basics. Build your skincare regimen from a solid foundation of cleanser, toner, and moisturizer then add serums and spot treatments as needed once your skin becomes acclimated.
With a variety of products to choose from, Yon-Ka Paris makes it easy to create your own customized skincare routine. If you’re just getting started, however, you may be unsure of where to start. These are some of our top recommendations for those who are new to the Yon-Ka Paris brand:
