Beauty & Wellbeing Routine: Kavisha Jegathesan, Wellness WA Contributor & RMIT Master of Wellness Student.

First up, briefly tell us a little bit about yourself!

In a nutshell? I am extremely passionate about holistic health and living well. I am also a huge foodie and have a passion for healthy cooking and baking. I am currently studying for my Master of Wellness at RMIT University.

Angels on Bare Skin Cleanser!


Tell us about your daily beauty routine.

When it comes to skincare I try to use natural and organic whenever possible. I cleanse & tone daily with Paula’s Choice one step face cleanser and healthy skin refreshing toner (colour & fragrance free). I use Lush’s Angels On Bare Skin as my daily exfoliant.

♥ Korres

I’m also a huge fan of Korres (natural & certified organic Greek skincare brand) and am currently using the moisturiser, serum and mask from their Wild Rose skincare range. Korres available from StrawberryNET and Kit Cosmetics.

I’ve just started using Sukin Organic products on my body and hair. They use cold-pressed, solvent free oils, essential oils and 100% natural botanical extracts and their products smell great!

What’s the one beauty treatment you can’t live without? And your favourite place to have it done?

I always have to have painted nails, so I give myself weekly manicures!

Who do you trust with your hair in Perth, and why?

Jo at Raven Hair Design in Bicton. She’s an amazing hairdresser and is so passionate about her work.

Favourite budget / at home beauty treatment?

Coconut oil as a hair mask and also eating healthy fats for glowing skin. Healthy fats are the natural fats found in avocado, chia seeds and wild caught salmon, high in anti-inflammatory omega 3 fatty acids.

Your three, absolutely cannot live without, favourite products?

Coconut oil (I use the NiuLife brand), Korres wild rose 24-H moisturizing brightening cream, Lush Angels On Bare Skin.

Do you have any secret tips you use to keep looking / feeling great?

Food is the bodies’ best medicine! Looking good starts from the inside out.

Eat SLOW! Seasonal, Locally produced with lots of colour and variety, Organic, Whole, fresh and with minimal processing.

Stay away from the white stuff (white pasta, white rice, white bread, sugar) and limit alcohol consumption.

Always remove makeup before bed & don’t wear foundation!

Sodashi

What beauty treatment/ wellbeing activity would you love to try but haven’t yet? (Due to time, money, scared etc!)

Sodashi skincare, a hot stone massage, reformer Pilates, a juice detox, a raw food ‘cooking’ class, so many!!!

Describe a typical day of eating for you.

Breakfast: Organic full fat yoghurt (Barambah is my fav) with banana or blueberries, bee pollen & home made muesli (rolled oats, quinoa flakes, chia seeds, almonds, brazil nuts, pumpkin seeds, goji berries, cacao nibs, shredded coconut) or Eggs (scrambled or poached) with veggies and greens.

Lunch: A massive green salad full of protein and good fats or nori wraps! At the moment i’m loving kale/spinach, a hard boiled egg, edamame beans, roma tomatoes, avocado, herbs from my garden, goats feta, pumpkin seeds & basil pesto.

Dinner: If I’m home it’s usually salmon with steamed/baked veggies or cumin baked sweet potato fries.

Snacks: Fruit, organic nut butter, almonds, green smoothies.

Drinks: Water, green tea, herbal teas.

Describe your fitness routine.

I exercise 5-6 x a week. I like to mix it up between cardio (RPM, boxing, Jacobs ladder), weight training and flexibility (yoga, body balance).

Do you take part in any alternative therapies or take supplements? If so, discuss.

I start each day with a green drink to help detox and alkalinize the body. At the moment I’m trialing Extreme Superfoods Green Smoothie Booster. I also take fish oil, vitamin c, and magnesium supplements daily.

How do you like to relax? What are your favourite ways to de-stress?

Meditation, getting a massage, catching up with friends, baking, watching a funny movie!

Kavisha will be sharing her in-depth knowledge of all things wellness with us a couple of times a month! We love her, and you will too. If you have any questions about her routine, please comment below 🙂

Be well,

xoxo

    Hi kavisha
    I’m interested what you studied before this masters? I’m studying naturopathy part time which i may convert to nutrition and also looking to work in the ‘wellness industry’ really want to help people make the right choices in health and well being.
    Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated
    Thanks
    Gabrielle

    Hi Gabrielle

    I completed a Bachelor of Commerce and then did my honours in Marketing before I realised that health & wellbeing was the area I was truely passionate about. Your background in Naturopathy is perfect for this course. Have a look at the entry requirements and look into applying. It is a very interesting course! I am thoroughly enjoying every aspect of it and i’m sure you will too 🙂

    Hi Kavisha,

    I’m interested to know why you suggest not using foundation? 🙂 And which brands you suggest if you can’t go without using foundation 🙂

    Hi Kelly,

    I’ve personally never worn foundation (because i could never find the right colour for my skin!) and strongly believe it is one of the reasons my skin is so clear now. Wearing foundation clogs your pores and doesn’t allow your skin to breathe. Also, who knows what nasty ingredients they add to foundation!? It can’t be good to put that on your face everyday!

    I’m not good with make up brands, but would suggest natural or organic make up brands were possible 🙂 Maybe Annette can help out on recommending some brands!!?

    Hope that helps 🙂

    Hi Kavisha
    Do you use a cleanser and then Angles on Bare Skin Cleanser as well (as you said you use it as an exfoliant??)
    Thanks & take care,
    I enjoyed reading this post,

    Thanks Kirsty 🙂

    Yes I use my normal cleanser and then use AOBS afterwards primary for exfoliating purposes. I do this daily.

    Some people say ABOS is too harsh to use everyday, but I think you’d have to see how it goes for your own skin.
