Some facials are hydrating, some are exfoliating and some are so unique, they don’t fit into any of the above boxes. That’s how I classify FaceGym, a workout for your face unlike anything else—personally, it’s one of the best facials I’ve ever had, and my cheekbones would say the same if they could talk. So, it comes as no surprise to me that a whopping 14 Hollywood A-listers turned into the facial workout brand for some pre-Oscars sculpting. And the best part? Most of the tools used during the facial are available for purchase so you can replicate it yourself at home.
The celebrity roster includes a variety of men and women: Nicole Kidman, Lily James, Anya Taylor Joy, Sian Heder, Maddie Hasson, Puff Daddy, Questlove, Brittany O’Grady, Amy Forsyth, Hannah Einbinder, Joe Jonas and his wife Sophie Turner, Paloma Garcia Lee, and Tessa Thompson. Most opted for the brand’s popular Cryo Contour facial, which involves a frozen depuffing massage and a high-pressure shot of CO2 to activate circulation, boost hydration and deliver a serious glow (perfect prior to any big event like the Oscars).
Celebrity makeup artist Kyra Panchenko is responsible for Nicole Kidman’s red-carpet glam and prepped the Being the Ricardos actress’s skin with FaceGym’s tension-relieving Weighted Ball, Multi-Sculpt stainless steel contouring tool, Pure Lift Face (the brand’s “noninvasive facelift” tool) and Medi Lift Eye Mask.
“I first start with the Weighted Ball to help release any tension in the face and neck and to increase blood flow,” says Panchenko. “Next, I use the FaceGym Pro Pure Lift tool, which uses electrical muscle stimulation technology (EMS) to activate and elevate the facial muscles giving an instant lift. It’s like a 10-minute at-home facelift—the definition on the cheekbones and jawline are so impressive. For the eye area, I used the Medi Lift Eye Mask—it’s genius! The gentle use of EMS around the eyes really smooths, lifts and brightens to give a more rested look. To finish, I use the Multi-Sculpt gua sha tool to contour and sculpt. I love the immediate results I get using the FaceGym tools. The results of using [them] before makeup really helps to give my clients a perfectly glowing prepped finish.”
All of the above received the Cryo Contour workout, which freezes away ten years in five minutes. This is the workout for intense hydration and contouring. It starts with the FaceGym Signature Sculpt massage followed by a high-pressure shot of frozen CO2: a powerful concentration of oxygen, atomised active ingredients and hyaluronic acid hydrates, plumps and locks in moisture. The CO2 shot is fast, effective and pain-free. It only takes five minutes to activate blood microcirculation, stimulate collagen and elastin production, and visibly improve your skin’s texture. To finish, FaceGym skincare is used. Skin is left looking lifted, rejuvenated and youthful.
