Yonka for Men at

Published on by

In recent years men have increasingly become major consumers of skin care products that provide the same anti-aging and personal care features as mainstream women’s skin care and cosmeceuticals. Men know that shaving, aging, and environmental stressed can have a significant effect on their skin, and many are choosing to actively seek skin care solutions.

Made popular in upscale spa’s and salons, Yonka has a full range of men’s skin care from cleansers to self-tanners and everything in-between.

Starting with the basic regimen, cleansing with the Yonka for Men Foam Gel both in the morning and in the evening will leave the skin hydrated and purified. This non-drying botanical based gel cleanser is great for men because most prefer a gel consistency than lathers up and rinses clean for their daily cleansing needs versus a cream based cleanser that can feel heavy on the skin even after rinsing.

After cleansing with the foam gel, shaving with the Yonka for Men Barber Shave is made easy even for the toughest beard on the most sensitive skin. This product is a multi-tasker that provides not only a close and clean shave with reduced irritation, cuts, and nicks but it also acts as a skin care product leaving your skin soft and smooth.

After shaving with the Barber Shave, the Yonka for Men Lotion YK is an alcohol-free skin energizer that prepares your skin for additional product if desired and also improves the effectiveness of the products already used during cleansing and shaving.

For optimal skin care, we suggest an exfoliating product to be used 1-3 times weekly. The Yonka for Men Foam Scrub is a fantastic product that removes dead skin cells which helps improve cell turnover, it tightens pores, rids ingrown hairs and black heads and leaves your skin deeply cleansed. This product is to be used after shaving and before a skin cream and is highly effective in prepping your skin for the Yonka for Men Masque which will further detoxify your skin and brighten your complexion while balancing the epidermis.

For added treatment benefits, the Yonka for Men Nutri Moist provides you with vitamin rich anti-oxidants to help protect your skin from environmental stress while the Age Defense will help combat the signs of aging. You can use one or both as need to give you softer, smoother, healthier skin. Top off your regimen with the Under Eye Gel both morning and evening to complete your skin care routine.

Top 5 Art Of Shaving Men’s Gift Ideas

Published on by

During the holiday season we get a lot of inquiries about gifts for men. I’ve found that the Art of Shaving  has wonderful gifts that any man would be delighted to receive.

The Art Of Shaving Ingrown Hair Kit is excellent for that man that struggles with ingrown facial hair, razor bumps, or who has a that extra thick hair that can be a challenge to get clean. This set is perfect for gifting and it includes an educational DVD that features information on getting the optimal shave results and the causes, prevention and relief of ingrown hairs.

The next four gifts are the Art Of Shaving perfect shave kits in various scents. These sell out very quickly during the holiday season so I would recommend purchasing your gifts very soon.

The Art of Shaving Full Size Kit Unscented contains pre-shave oil, shaving cream, after shave balm and the badger shaving brush. Because there is no scent, this can be a great gift for even the most picky man on your gift list.

The Art of Shaving Full Size Kit Sandalwood contains the same as the unscented (pre-shave oil, shaving cream, after shave balm and the badger shaving brush). The scent in this kit is my absolute favorite and it is really popular with many women (and men) because it has a woodsy smell that is fresh and masculine. The scent is Aromatherapy-based 100% pure essential oil. If you are on the fence, read the product reviews.

The Art of Shaving Full Size Kit Lavender contains the pre-shave oil, shaving cream, after shave balm, and the badger shaving brush and uses the 100% essential oil, lavender. For those of you who know lavender, the smell isn’t really a masculine scent but it’s also not a feminine either. It’s really a neutral, clean smalling scent.

The Art Of Shaving Full Size Kit Lemon contains the same items as the other shaving kits, but it smells like lemons. Some like the fresh scent of lemon on seasonal basis and the more traditional scents for year round or on special occasions.

Don’t forget, at we have a large selection of men’s products to choose from. Stop by when you get a chance and you can pick up the perfect gift for both you and the man on your holiday shopping list!

Best Foot Forward – Men’s Pedicures

Published on by

When I began researching to write this article I searched online for references of men getting pedicures. The first site talked about pedicures being more masculine than most people think; ironically the website was adorned with dainty little sunflowers and a picture of women’s painted toe nails!  There were several other sites in various different glamour and beauty websites talking about how men are slowly beginning to take better care of their feet.  There were also numerous articles in women’s magazines giving pointers on how to give their man a pedicure at home.  However there was not much from a man’s perspective for men. 

Being a licensed manicurist and esthetician I wanted to give guys out there a heads up on what to look for in choosing who does your pedicure, and what products we have in case you want to do a pedicure at home.  Many times women have much more experience getting these services, so guys may be at a loss of knowing what to look for and what to do.

So here are my tips and suggestions on a getting a pedicure at a salon or spa:

  • Make sure the business is licensed appropriately; make sure the person who does your service is licensed appropriately and displays their license.
  • Make sure the nail files and foot files are disposable and new.  Be wary of metallic grating tools used to file callused skin off your heels!
  • Make sure all the metal tools (implements) have been freshly sanitized in the blue solution and stored in a clean dry place later.
  • Make sure your salon/spa has a cleaning journal showing when the last time your foot spa (especially ones with jets) has been cleaned and sanitized.  It should be after EVERY use.  Old water should be drained, debris filters cleaned, the tub rinsed, scrubbed down and rinsed again, refilled and a hospital grade disinfectant added, jets turned on to circulate the cleaner in the system, cleaner sits for 10-20 minutes, drained and dried. THEN it is ready for the next customer!


If you want to do a home treatment here are some suggestions:

Soak your feet in hot water in a foot tub or home foot spa.  Essential oils such as lavender can relax, and eucalyptus or mint can stimulate.  I would suggest trying Kerstin Florian Krauter Fub Salt.

After soaking your feet for 10 minutes or so you can use a foot file to file off the  rough areas of skin on your feet.  I would suggest trying Tweezerman Pedicure Ceramic File.

Next trim and shape your nails using nail clippers and a nail file.  Toe nails are best trimmed square with a rounded or softened corner.  Use a 3 way nail buffer to smooth out any nail ridges, even out the surface, and buff to shine (if you want.) Tweezerman Men’s Deluxe Grooming Kit is a great kit.

When you’re all done with the soaking, filing and trimming and have dried off your feet, use a foot cream or body butter to moisturize.  Massage it into all areas of your feet.  Put a little extra on and slip some socks on while the product absorbs!  I suggest L’Occitane Shea Butter Foot Cream.

Don’t be afraid to take a little time out to take care of your feet.  A good trimming of the nails can make your shoes more comfortable and a great foot massage can alleviate a lot of built up tension, stress and pain.  The result will be feet that feel better in your shoes or boots, and look better in those summer sandals! Which ever you decide, salon, day spa or at home, be sure to put your best foot forward!

How to Get Amazing Abs

Published on by

Keeping that manly sex appeal with washboard abs can make all the difference in our love lives! Recent images of Taylor Lautner and Bradley Cooper remind us daily of what we all desire to have, and work to achieve.


Some of us need to hit the gym and lose 10 or 15 pounds in order to reveal those abdominal muscles we’ve been working to tone. But what happens if we have a few stretch marks around our belly and love handles? Nothing can be more frustrating than to lose a few pounds through diet and exercise only to have stretch marks from previous pounds tarnish your new look!


Despite all the infomercials on diet and exercise, there are no miracle machines or miracle diets that target weight loss only in your gut and love handles. Adhering to a balanced healthy intake of food and regular cardiovascular exercise can help in reducing your body fat content. A regular regimen of abdominal and oblique exercises (with or without weights, machines, gadgets & gizmos) will help you build, tighten and tone muscles. As always, before starting any new food or exercise plan see your doctor for advice.


Once you’re close to achieving those results you can use these products to help minimize the appearance of stretch marks (and not just on your belly and love handles!)


Belli Stretchmark Minimizing Cream is a healing skin reparative treatment specifically formulated to decrease the appearance of existing stretchmarks. Features darutoside and registril – ingredients shown in independent clinical trials to be effective on stretchmarks of any age or from any cause.


Hydroxatone Celtrixa Stretch Mark Lotion is another great choice. By infusing skin firming peptides, in association with soothing and anti-inflammatory agents, skin becomes thicker and more uniform.


Here’s a product review for the renowned StriVectin SD: “I bought this product in February 2009 for the first time and I am happy with it. My stretch marks are 15 years old and now they begin to disappear. My skin got firmer and thicker.”


Now that you’re all ripped out go show off your new look poolside!
