TIME RESIST Creme Jour from Yonka-Paris

TIME RESIST Creme Jour (Day Cream: jour means day in French)

These new Yonka products came out just as I was about to close my skin care salon in Boulder and move out of state. I went to my last product information class in 2018 with Time Resist products as the headliner.

As you can read in my post linked below (More new products from Yonka-Paris: TIME RESIST Day & Night Creams, which is an overview of these products in general), I’m not a huge fan of jars, even though there is a reason Yonka strayed from their decades-long use of tubes and opted to start using air-tight jars.

I have tried these creams (both day and night versions) and found I have a sensitivity to one or more of the ingredients. My eyes simply couldn’t handle something in these creams so I gave them away to a client to use and to get a critique from (something I never received!).

My point is: I don’t have a lot of experience with Time Resist. From the seminar I attended and reading what I can find about them, these creams pack a powerful punch of new technological ingredients and although they are pricey, I recommend giving them a try if you are looking for the latest in anti-aging products.

From Yonka headquarters: During the day, your skin faces a number of aggressions. It needs a cream that can protect it while making it more beautiful. In addition to youth activator ingredients, the TIME RESIST Day Cream is also enriched in filling spheres and hyaluronic acid, to smooth skin and restore its bounce.

Aging is a part of the natural life cycle, which is predetermined at birth. Aging skin reveals the effects of time passing and the skin can thin, wrinkle, and loose its density and radiance. External factors (pollution, smoking, alcohol, sun, etc.) speed up these phenomena.

The TIME RESIST duo is therefore a precious ally for your skin: it provides it with advanced natural ingredient technology that neutralizes the effects of these external factors: controlling the visible signs of aging.

At the heart of these velvety and hydrating formulas is an all-new synergy that combines new-generation plant-based stem cells with the anti-inflamm'aging Youth Energy lipoaminoacid, to uphold your skin's youth.

Protected throughout the entire day, technologically advanced microspheres enriched with hyaluronic acid visibly smooth wrinkles and give the skin more bounce. In time, wrinkles are visibly smoothed, skin is plumped, signs of tiredness are diminished and your complexion is much brighter.

Essential ingredients:
  • Plant-based Saponaria Pumila stem cells, Youth Energy lipoaminoacid, wakame extract—youth activating, redensifying (I’m not sure I even know what that means!) 
  • Vegetable glycerin, grape seed oil, shea butter—hydrating, nourishing 
  • Microspheres (hyaluronic acid low molecular weight + konjac), oat polysaccharides—wrinkle filler
  • Hyaluronic acidhydrating, wrinkle filler
Directions for use:
    In the morning:
    • After cleansing and spraying on Yonka Lotion toner 
    • Apply TIME RESIST Creme Jour over face and neck
    • Then use your favorite Yonka eye cream

    The Forgotten Places: The Hands

    We tend to worry about our hands (the tops of our hands) long after the damage has occurred, which makes this area one of The Forgotten Places. If you’re young, start now to take care of your hands, so they will reflect this care when you’re older. And even if you are older and haven’t taken very good care of this area, it’s never too late to start. Your skin will always reflect the care you give it. Here are a few suggestions.

    First, whenever you exfoliate your face and neck, exfoliate the tops of your hands. It’s a small area, so it doesn’t take much time (or product), but getting rid of the dead cells here will go a long way in keeping your hands looking youthful and feeling smooth.

    Next, after you have applied moisturizer to your face and neck, smooth any excess product on your hands. If they are chronically dry, apply a special hand cream or the cream you’re using on your body before you go to bed. Try to apply it as often as you can throughout the day as well.

    Another suggestion is to wear gloves. They can really help to keep the tops of your hands hydrated as well as protected from the elements. I have clients who sleep with gloves on to ensure an overnight moisturizing effect. Rubber gloves are great if your hands are in water a lot or even a little. Wear them while doing the dishes or any other time your hands will be immersed in water. Driving with gloves on will help keep the damaging sun off your hands. Wearing gloves in cold weather will go a long way toward protecting the tops of the hands from damage, not only from the sun, but also from the dry, cold air. 

    Finally, wearing sunscreen on the tops of your hands is important. When applying sunscreen to your face and/or body, don’t forget the tops of your hands.
