Smooth and sun-kissed, at home or traveling with Yon-Ka

Sometimes, you want to have to look of having hit the road for an adventurous Spring Break or luxe cruise season. Everyone wants the appearance of a leisure lifestyle and nobody wants to feel left out! Treat yourself at home (or on the road, even if it's a business trip) with glamorous French skincare company, Yon-Ka. I was very happy to be hosted to experience it!

Yon-Ka Lait Auto Bronzant -- self tanning milk -- is one of the first products that really "gets it". Most people who use self-tanner seek to look like they've gotten a bit of actual sun . . . they don't want to look like they rubbed brown shoe polish paste all over. They don't want to look obvious, fake and weird. With Yon-Ka, not only do you avoid all of the unpleasantness associated with typical self-tanners, the color that comes up is a super-sheer cool brown. I myself don't layer lots of self-tanner, I want to look like I really did have a fun afternoon outdoors. It has a bunch of skin-nutritious ingredients:

Vegetable glycerin, fruit extracts: hydrating, repairing
Shea butter, cereal germ oils: repairing, nourishing, protecting
Rice oil, vitamin E: anti-oxidant

Moisture and glow, without greasiness. It's a tall order, but many of us have been seeking that for years. HYDRA N°1 Serum comes in two different formulations, depending on the oiliness or dryness of your complexion. It works under any moisturizer, weightlessly. If you're in an extremely hot and humid environment, it's breathable on its own. Here's what they say about it:

The perfect emergency remedy for very dehydrated skin.

With its true long-lasting, intense hydration activating complex, this creamy and refreshing gel is the perfect emergency remedy for very dehydrated skin: quickly absorbed, it replenishes the skin's hydration levels.

The anti-aging and hydrating* effects are enhanced when used in association with the CREME or the FLUIDE.

The skin is softer and suppler; its glow restored, it appears smoother and re-plumped.
