When the days get shorter and the weather gets colder, you may find yourself feeling a little blue. The winter can be a difficult time, particularly after a year like 2020. If you’re spending more time indoors anyway, why not take the opportunity to enjoy a little self-care? An at-home spa day is just what you need to relax and unwind. Let’s be honest, we could all use a little stress reduction.
Join us as we explore the benefits of self-care and take a closer look at some of the top Yon-Ka products to include in your at-home relaxation to stave off the winter blues.
The Importance of Self-Care
Even in a year when many of us have barely left home, life can be busy and stressful. We often find ourselves spending so much time taking care of our responsibilities that we forget to take care of ourselves. In a year as difficult as this one, it can be particularly challenging to prioritize time for yourself when there are so many others who are struggling just as much or more than you.
The truth is self-care is not selfish. When you’re feeling physically and emotionally exhausted, you are less able to handle the stress and the responsibilities that come your way. You’re the most resilient when you’re feeling your best. Taking a little time to rest and relax can prevent chronic stress from damaging your health and can boost your mental health as well.

Making time for self-care doesn’t have to mean sacrificing the time you spend with your family or dedicate to fulfilling your obligations. Something as simple as carving 30 minutes out of your day to settle down with a good book or get out of the house for a walk can work wonders. Nothing soothes the mind, body, and soul, however, like a good old-fashioned at-home spa day.
Here are 5 relaxing ways to beat the winter blues with Yon-Ka…
1. Light an aromatherapy candle and soak in a hot bath.
When you start to feel overwhelmed by everything going on around you, sometimes the best thing you can do is shut it all out – literally, if only for a little while. Run a hot bath and drizzle in some Yon-Ka Phyto Bain oil then light your favorite aromatherapy candle and settle in for a good soak.
Phyto Bain is a relaxing bath oil that features a high concentration of botanical and essential oil extracts to promote circulation and invigorate the mind and body. Enjoy the effects of a luxurious spa experience right in the comfort of your own home with the additional slimming, firming, and detoxifying benefits. Enjoy a genuine olfactory experience that soothes the mind and body as the hot water soaks away stress and sore muscles.
2. Transport your mind to Polynesia without leaving home.
If you’re feeling like you want to get away from it all, you can transport your mind to a new land without ever leaving home. Travel to the land of Polynesia while enjoying a luxurious Gommage Sucre Jasmine relaxing sugar scrub followed by a nourishing Huile Delicieuse dry oil body spray treatment. When you’re finished, wrap yourself in a fluffy robe and relax with some calming music.
Gommage Sucre Jasmine is a luxuriant, exfoliating sugar scrub that magically turns into milk when it comes into contact with water. Breathe in the subtle floral aroma while the exquisite texture gently exfoliates the skin. Huile Delicieuse is a nourishing dry body oil featuring a delicate combination of sunflower, sesame, and baobab oils to beautify the skin and hair.
3. Show your face some love with facial massage.
When you’re feeling stressed, the signs are visible right on your face. Dark circles, worry lines, and dull complexion can creep in over time, but an afternoon of facial massage is just what you need to relax and reset. The QYKSonic facial massage device is the perfect tool to deliver relaxing facial massage while boosting blood flow and restoring your skin’s natural glow.
Make the most of your at-home spa day with a QYKSonic Cleansing Duo bundle. The Cleansing Duo bundle features the Zoe Bliss QYKSonic device and Lait Nettoyant, a gentle cleansing milk for all skin types. The Anti-Aging Bundle features the Zoe Bliss device along with Lait Nettoyant and Elixir Vital, a regenerating elixir fortified with 24 amino acids to nourish the skin and restore suppleness.
4. Take a mental journey to Corsica with Yon-Ka Paris.
Give yourself the gift of an indulgent body treatment while your mind travels to Corsica with Yon-Ka Paris products. Breathe in the aromatic fragrance of sweet orange and mandarin essential oils while classical music plays softly in the background. Sip a glass of wine and lie back with a warm towel over your eyes and experience the soothing mind and body benefits of aromatherapy.
Gommage Sucre Vitality is a non-abrasive sugar scrub that instantly turns to milk when you add water, creating a delightfully invigorating experience. Follow your scrub with a nourishing Lait Hydrant body milk treatment. This fragrant body milk features a nourishing combination of grapeseed and sweet almond oils to nourish and replenish the skin, supplemented with ginseng for a reenergizing effect.
5. Exchange relaxing massages with your partner.
Self-care doesn’t always have to be done alone. If you’d like to relax and unwind with a partner, the Massage Candle Taiga is the perfect option. This limited-edition massage candle delivers the pleasant scent of pine with just a hint of citrus for balance. What truly makes it unique, however, is that the candle melts into a warm oil you can apply as lotion or use as massage oil.
Start your spa-day experience with a relaxing bath while the candle warms up. After 10 to 15 minutes, the oil will be ready for you and a partner to share. The combination of shea butter, mango butter, and organic virgin sesame oil will nourish and repair the skin while Siberian pine, cypress, and Virginian cedar essential oils promote balance and impart a feeling of bliss.
