How can Yon-Ka products at Temple Spa help to improve your mood as well as caring for and protecting your skin?
Yon-Ka skincare is based on the five essential oils: lavender, thyme, geranium, rosemary, and cypress. Each of these oils, on their own and together, work fantastically to help relieve tension, aid sleep, protect and nourish your skin, and here’s how they do that:
The scent alone has a calming effect which may aid in relaxation and the reduction of anxiety. It also helps relieve pain from tension headaches when breathed in as a vapour or rubbed into the skin. In lotion it protects the skin from free radicals, eases sensitive skin, and calms high coloured skin.
Used as a lotion, ancient Greek’s believed thyme was a source of courage. It purifies the skin and when used at night time helps to aid sleep and ward off nightmares.
The lotion has a fantastic effect to help balance the mind and emotions. It has an astringent effect which causes the blood vessels to contract; this in turn helps prevent muscles and skin from getting loose, preventing wrinkles. It also helps reduce scars and acne.
Rosemary has a reputation for improving memory. It will shield the brain and the skin from free radicals, lowering the risk of strokes and memory loss. It is renowned for removing toxins from the body, it aids in draining dark circles from underneath the eye and when used at night it aids in skin firming.
Cypress helps to enliven and regulate the mind and body. It improves energy and reduces nervous tension. It has a general detoxifying, decongesting effect, plus it helps fight cellulite and reduce scar tissue and acne scars.
