Bellingen beauty therapist Nadira Perera of La Beauté Du Monde Bellingen has managed to combine centuries old beauty traditions of her Sri Lankan heritage and her specialised French training, with an ethos for natural, organic products, to provide each of her clients with a unique experience. “My aim has always been to use products that are both natural and harmless,” says Nadira. “I make every effort to only work with products that are environmentally friendly, cruelty free, vegan and non-toxic.”
Having worked as a beauty therapist in Paris for years, Nadira is completely convinced of the benefits of the Payot Paris Skin Care Range. “The Payot brand was born in 1920 due to the extraordinary vision of one woman: Nadia Payot. Ahead of her time, she became one of the first female doctors. She was a feminist, involved in the women’s rights movement. Nadia Payot used her medical, scientific and herbal expertise to develop her range of skincare products and in 1947 opened her first aesthetic schools in France. These products have always combined herbs, plants and minerals. I totally fell in love with her story and and the active ingredients,” says Nadira.
Only very recently Nadira has also launched the Pure Organic Bio-Suisse Luzern Anti ageing skin care range to expand the treatment options available at La Beaute Du Monde.
The Pure Organic Bio Suisse Luzern Products
Luzern’s luxurious products are formulated using the finest, sustainably-harvested, organic Swiss extracts and active ingredients, while eliminating additives, synthetics, or chemical preservatives. “I can now provide oxygen facial treatments, particularly helpful for sensitive skin types. Many local clients were especially looking for 100% Pure Organic, and I’m thrilled to be able to provide this now.” Also recently launched are Organic Eco spray tans and toxic free Bio Sculpture nails.
Nadira’s signature treatment, the Indian head massage, reflects her Southern Asian heritage coupled with her French training. “The Payot Elixir Oil combines extracts of Myrrh and Amyris. It is luxurious but non greasy. Just after the treatment you can go and meet someone for a cuppa or return to work with a clear mind,” says Nadira.
This softly spoken therapist is a Senior Brown Belt in the Shotokan style karate, a Japanese Martial Art form. “This coming November I will be grading to a Black belt . So exited!” Nadira is also a passionate dancer. “I learned Kandian Dance at school, which is a traditional Sri Lanka dance form. I have also studied salsa and modern jazz for many years and performed in Paris at many local occasions.” Bellingen locals may recognise Nadira as an integral part of the ‘Bello Bollywood Troupe’, which has performed both in Bellingen and Coffs Harbour.
Bellingen’s Camp Creative was responsible for introducing Nadira to Bollywood as a dance style. “I just loved it. Performing with the Bollywood sisters is the most joyful thing ever. I’m also involved with the Bello Women Dance Co-OP, which allows me to dance with other like-minded women and teach as a volunteer.”
Nadira has recently renovated and expanded her beauty clinic in the Old Council Chambers in Bellingen. “La Beauté Du Monde is now ready to accommodate another therapist, with a similar ethos- providing our clients with the best care, using only the safest natural products. We want our clients to leave having been indulged in luxury for the best possible value.”
