Skin magic

At BYY, we love local, and we love natural: Suki Suki Naturals is a forward-thinking beauty brand that celebrates African beauty through its high-quality, clean haircare and skincare products. With a focus on authentic ingredients sourced from the African continent, the range is all about merging science and nature and celebrating our natural selves.

We tried the Rosehip Brightening Facial Oil which helped to clear away some red marks from a recent unsightly rash with all the antioxidants it contains; the Açaí Gentle Exfoliating Mask nourished my skin leaving it feel so refreshed; The Buchu Moringa Milky Cleanser worked wonders for the tone and texture of my teenager’s acne prone skin. This is one brand you simply have to get onto your beauty shelf.

Get below zero

BYY is now going to be bringing you the latest in all kinds of beauty therapies, spas and wellness treatments in a brand, new section on the website. Our first foray into the world of wellness came with a visit to CryobyCoco in Melrose Arch, Joburg. There, we stepped in a cryochamber of -87 degrees for 3 minutes. Freezing your body (unlike an ice-plunge, this is your entire body) at these sub-zero temperatures  of dry air for short bursts of time, is very good for your immune system, pain and inflammation, diseases and disorders such as fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis.

It’s used for the treatment of patients postoperatively and for recovery after sports injuries. It is beneficial in treating skin conditions like psoriasis and dermatitis, general anti-aging, weight management and mental health. All I can say is that it was more difficult to do than I imagined and that I felt fantastic for the rest of the day. Will definitely do it again. Go and try it for yourself!

Super supplements

We all want to keep our families healthy and happy—good quality supplements are an absolute essential and NOW Foods are as good as it gets! This month, we tried NOW Food’s Magnesium Inositol Relax Powder– perfect for stress and calm (most of us are Magnesium deficient); Lion’s Mane, which is ideal to improve cognition and memory, Phosphatidyl Serine that improves brain function and may lead to better quality sleep; L-Theanine, brilliant for sleep, weight loss and blood pressure; and True Focus, which truly does wonders for concentration. There’s no reason not to feel your best self!

Body confidence

I’ve been using Bramley Tissue Oil for a while now and love the way it makes my skin feel- soft and moisturised. I decided to try out the Shea Body Butter and the smell is divine. I highly recommend it for daily use as it does not feel oily after applying and is great for dry skin. It comes in a variety of flavours like lavender and magnolia so there’s a fragrance for everyone. I’m also a huge fan of the body wash and hand and nail cream which is a handbag essential!   There’s also a range for sensitive skin and for men as well. Simply lovely products –and at very affordable prices.
