The Master Aesthetician Behind Lada Gaga’s Flawless Skin

November 15, 2017

When I first got wind about Joomee Song, I knew one thing – I HAD TO MEET HER. Something told me, this is a woman I need to know, and to share with you all. And wow, was I right. First off, besides running her private studio, www.faceworksinc.com, Joomee is a core member of Lady Gaga’s glam team. In other words, if you are wondering how and why Gaga’s skin is the most stunning thing you have laid eyes on, we have Joomee to thank for getting and keeping her on track.

Besides being a straight up aesthetician with over 20 years in the biz, she is also the creator of an incredible lymph-draining, massage technique, called Kaika. In most simple terms it is a signature style of facial massage that uses Shiatsu and acupressure to lift and tone the skin but it really is so much more. Joomee tunes in, reads your face, your energy and what it is calling for – so to speak. She is so tuned it, that it becomes an energetic experience.

Her incredible session combines effective elements of Eastern and Western skin care and of course each treatment is tailored to your needs. She also uses the latest equipment in tandem with carefully hand selected, only botanical products and will guide you through after care to help you sustain your healthy glow.

MY SESSION was phenomenal. I totally melted into Joomee’s hands and energy. I could feel my lymph glands draining as she worked. Days later, I am still glowing. I loved the feeling of the work around my eye sockets. It was deep and profound. And welp, miserable when it came to an end. I wanted her to NEVER STOP using her magic fingers to release my facial tension (which I have tons of). If this isn’t enough, Joomee is a LOVE, like a really, delicious love who you will now want to spend every day with.

Originally from Kobe, Japan, Joomee Song is a Los Angeles-based Esthetician sought out for her modern approach to skincare that combines botanical products, the latest technology, and her unique facial massage technique,KAIKA.

Drawing from her training since 1999 in the US and in Japan including certifications in Kobido, a Japanese facial massage dating back to 1472 that lifts, tones, and detoxifies the skin, and Japanese Facial Symmetry Method, a chiropractic Shiatsu movement to realign facial structure that incorporates acupressure and lymphatic drainage, Joomee developed KAIKA as a way to fuse Eastern and Western skincare philosophies to deliver healthy, glowing skin.

Relaxing and therapeutic, every treatment is tailored to the individual addressing any acne, anti-aging, preventative, reactive, or any other skincare concerns there may be.

Prior to launching her private practice, Joomee was part of some of the West Coast’s most elite medical spas and luxury hotels including Hotel Bel Air, Beverly Hills Hotels, The Langham Pasadena. She has been featured on Daily Candy, LA times, US Magazine, Extra TV, Access Hollywood,  and The Doctors.

The prices are $175 for 50 minutes  $250 for 75 minutes at the studio. Please contact Joomee directly for pricing inquiries regarding house calls, which she makes.

New Love: nyakio Maracuja & Yangu Soothing Oil

November 13, 2017

I have been obsessed with this brand since I met Nyakio at an event.  She is amazing. Her passion is inspiring. Her products are incredible. 

Welcome to the family Maracuja and Yangu Soothing Oil – perfect for combating the upcoming dry winter weather. 

This conditioning oil soothes and restores skin while calming sensitive areas. Derived from Passion Fruit in Rwanda, the source of Maracuja Oil, and the Cape Chestnut tree in South Africa, the source of Yangu nuts, Maracuja & Yangu Oil blend together with their high content of essential fatty acids to nourish and soothe, while leaving skin radiant.

In addition to giving skin a dewy glow, the Yangu Oil instantly calms irritation and redness, making it ideal for use after tweezing and facial waxing.

Cold-pressed to preserve their nutrients, the oil is formulated without parabens, sulfates, phthalates, mineral oil, petrolatum, formaldehyde and butylene glycol. Founder Nyakio Grieco was drawn to Maracuja & Yangu Oil and compelled to incorporate it into the product upon hearing about the ingredients from women of sub-Saharan Africa. For generations, they have extracted these oils from their plants and massaged onto skin, treating the results of daily stress on the skin.

nyakio Maracuja & Yangu Soothing Oil is available at Ulta and Ulta.com for $42.
