In order to get the proper products for your skin type, you must first and foremost determine how much oil your skin is producing. Without this knowledge, the chances of ordering products that are wrong for your skin increases. How much oil are you producing? A lot, none, somewhere in between? Keep this in mind when looking at the skin type descriptions.
Next, I am definitely a proponent of using sunscreen on a daily basis if you will be exposed. Yonka doesn't include sun protection in many of their day creams. Why? Because including the extra sunscreen ingredients cancels out the action of the treatment ingredients. In other words, there isn't enough room to include everything in one cream. Therefore, if you are interested in using sunscreen, I recommend the following as your day cream. You can follow the advice in the skin type descriptions for all other aspects of your treatment program:
For normal, normal to oily, and combination skin use: Lait Solaire (SPF 15) or Ultra Protection (SPF 25).
or normal to dry and dry skin use: Ultra Protection (SPF 25).
Last, no matter your skin type, in the drier/winter months Dermol is essential to add to your moisturizers (day and night). Unless you live in a 365-day warm climate, the Dermols will help to alleviate that aggravating dry, flaky skin. See Expert Advice, then the article entitled Yonka's Dermols: For Extra Hydration for more information.
The following are just guidelines as to the right products for your skin. I have tried to simplify the process by only giving a few choices, although the Yonka line is extensive and other products may be available for your skin type. If you have questions, please contact me!
Please note in most cases products are listed in this order: Cleanser, Toner, Day Creme, Night Creme, Exfoliation, Masks, and Concentrates.
