Beauty & Wellbeing Routine: Claire Bevilacqua, Professional Surfer & Raw Foodist.

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

My name is Claire Bevilacqua I’m 29, and along with my partner Kylie we created Raw Ky foods. We have a line of foods that started from just the basic snacks & treats we make for ourselves being all vegan, gluten free and raw. From sharing with family and friends, the brand has grown and is feeding all those who taste it with the most highly nutritious hand made foods we can create.

Tell us about your daily beauty routine.

I am a professional surfer and I focus more on my inner health and fitness then outer beauty. I eat a mostly raw vegan diet, I am very active and I balance the intense action with light stretching. I use natural organic sunscreen on my face and for all other body needs I only use natural/unprocessed ingredients. From tooth paste to hair care its always 100% natural for me.

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

I love a strong massage and I love it done in Bali because its affordable and the Balinese people enjoy doing it.

Who do you trust with your hair in Perth?

Nobody, I have had a fear of cutting my hair since I was a child so I let my partner trim the ends once a year. I never dye my hair as I don’t like anything fake and I think natural suits me best. The Aussie sun seems to do a great job at giving me highlights.

Favourite budget / at home beauty treatment?

Lathering pure coconut oil all over my body, smells good, tastes good and is healthy for you.

Your three, absolutely cannot live without, favourite products?

Coconut butter, Olive oil, Corrynnes natural soap.

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

Every morning I wake up and drink a litre of water with a spoonful of spirulina & chlorella powder. It has replaced caffeine, and alkalizes my body in the morning.

What beauty treatment/ wellbeing activity would you love to try but haven’t yet?

I have just started to have some pigment change in my face skin and I would love to find out how to naturally remove the unwanted spots that seem to have appeared overnight.

Describe a typical day of eating for you.

I wake up drink a litre of water with the green powder, then i will have a plant fusion vegan protein smoothy or some Raw Ky granola. I will eat some salad with tempeh or raw pizza for dinner. Snack on dried fruits and nuts or some Raw Ky muesli bars & macaroons for a sweet treat. Some in season local fruit here and there. Then soup, zucchini pasta or a stir fry for dinner.

Describe your fitness routine.

I do what feels right in the moment. I surf almost every day for training from 1-5 hours depending on how good it is. I will run or bike if there are no waves. Stretch and use my foam roller in the afternoon, and chill out on the couch at night.

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

I believe in many forms of alternative medicine. I love acupuncture, massage, Osteopathy, Ayurvedic medicine, and so on. My favorite is healing with pure essential oils, the highest grade so you can ingest them daily.

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

I just love watching the ocean or sitting on the couch watching a movie with my lover. I zone out on the computer with Facebook and Instagram. My favorite way to detox and unwind is in a man made native American sweat lodge, on the dirt, it is incredible.
