Katherine Tomasso, YON-KA’s VP of Education, and Laura Cummins, Senior Educator, choreographed the unique treatment to the delight of celebrities and VIPs attending the glamorous event in the French Riviera.

YON-KA was the sole professional skincare line invited to the 2003 Cannes Film Festival. Boasting an extensive celebrity cult following already, YON-KA was the ideal choice for the event. (Image to the side - Laura Cummins, Senior Educator for YON-KA - all rights reserved).

The premise for VIP Suite Cannes 2003 was lush yet simple, bringing prime exclusivity to the glam-packed event, with a complimentary, invitation-only environment that fuses fabulous fashion, premium products and services, in a luxury one-stop location. Before all the fantastic parties and premieres, film stars, studio executives and other VIPs were invited to receive royal YON-KA treatments, enjoy refreshments and receive YON-KA gift bags with magnificent YON-KA products.

VIP Suite Cannes offered services from other high brands such as Jos Eber, MAC Cosmetics, Rowlandson’s Jewelers, Dahlhouse Productions, Bond St. Lounge and the Nikki Beach club.

All proceeds from the event went to the American Red Cross Armed Forces Emergency Services – supporting families of American soldiers around the world.

Among the celebrities who enjoyed services by VIP Suite were Elizabeth Taylor, Academy-Award winning director Oliver Stone, Hollywood producer Joel Silver, Song-writer and singer Macy Gray, Mulholland Drive star Laura Elena Harring, international movie star Jean-Claude Van Damme and supermodel Naomi Campbell.

Plaisir Des Sens is YON-KA’s newest treatment which places emphasis on balancing the chakra points as well as the harmonizing effects of aroma, touch, and temperature contrasts. This radiance facial and stone body massage in one incorporates 5 different therapies: Sensory Therapy, Chakra Therapy, Volcanic Stone Therapy, Aqua Jade Pebble Therapy and Color Gem Therapy.

“The elegant setting of the Cannes Festival was a perfect match for the rich and detailed choreography of Plaisir Des Sens,“ said Tomasso. “The festival is a joyous celebration, consisting of two weeks of cinema, parties, intense sun and late nights with little sleep - which can be stressful. Stress is constricting to the whole body, resulting in skin fatigue, i.e. deepening lines and dryness due to impaired circulation. It was rewarding for me to see the Plaisir Des Sens experience reversing these effects and bringing tranquility to even the highest profile, Type-A personalities.” (Image above - Katherine Tomasso VP of Education at YON-KA - all rights reserved).

Plaisir Des Sens is approximately 70-75 minutes long at a suggested price range of $95-$175, depending on location and demographics. For more information, readers may call YON-KA Paris at 1-800-966-5255.

Since the 50s, YON-KA Paris has been a pioneer of aesthetic aromatherapy and phyto-therapy. YON-KA creates face, body and sun beauty products not only with the plant’s revitalizing essential oil, charged with solar energy, but with all of the complementary ingredients contained in plant and marine extracts: vitamins, trace elements and fruit acids.

YON-KA is currently the number one skincare line in destination spas across the United States, with a cult following among celebrities and spa aficionados.

Daily Hair Tip
When detangling hair, carefully work from the ends of the hair up towards the roots. Work in small sections and carefully hold the section of hair you are detangling with your fingers to avoid pulling, unnecessary pressure or tearing on the wet hair.
