I recently got to try out KimaKai Skin & Body Wellness in Cape Town. KimaKai is a new venture, founded by the lovely Anna Maroudas Viljoen. With many years of experience in the beauty scene locally and abroad, Anna chose to apply her skills of the trade and open up her own treatment centre late
The cupping therapy technique, popular amongst celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow, originated in China 3 500 years ago and was used to open the 5 meridians on the back to allow the ‘Chi’ (life energy) to flow more freely.
I have been trying out a bright (the packaging – which I love by the way), new eco beauty brand Mioja. Mioja skincare products are natural, organic and support community initiatives such as the Vukuzakhe Muthi Planters Project in Zululand, South Africa.
If you´re on the hunt for a new cleanser this summer, they Africology´s Cleansing gel (R260). It contains Quillaja extract and Soapwort, which are both natural, mild foaming and cleansing agents. Added seaweed extract maintains skin health and has a smoothing and moisturising effect.
