Beyond Yourself Beauty and Wellness Team

Beyond Yourself, Beauty and Wellness Clinic joins the fight against period poverty.

With Women’s Month ahead, Beyond Yourself Beauty and Wellness Clinic has teamed up with Helping Those In Need, a non-profit organisation focused on serving the basic, unmet needs of East London’s most vulnerable. With almost 30 girls in their permanent care. They believe that every girl deserves to feel safe and confident. We at Beyond Yourself Beauty and Wellness Clinic firmly believe that beauty, hygiene and wellness boosts confidence, enabling people to reach new levels in other areas of their lives. So, we decided to join fight against period poverty in an effort to make underprivileged teen girls, feel more confident and comfortable in their day to day lives.

Approximately 40% of young girls in rural areas, use unsafe and unhygienic products during their menstrual period. They do not have access to clean sanitary pads, leaving them exposed to infections, being absent from school and several other issues.

Beyond Yourself Beauty and Wellness Clinic is a proud stockist of Nimue Skincare Products. They have a superb young skin range called Y-skin, it is specifically formulated for tween and teen skin, Beyond Yourself Beauty and Wellness Clinic and Nimue collaborated around this range to host a Teen Skincare Workshop during the winter school holidays, in aid of period poverty.

For every teen girl booked into a workshop session, we were able to donate 1 pack of sanitary towels to Helping Those In Need NPO. In total, we were able to donate 236 packs of sanitary towels!
The frequent motto we now live by is “with the help of East London businesses and community we can combat period poverty, 1 girl at a time.”

Following the event, a prominent local school made contact with us to jump on board and collaborate for another Teen Skincare Workshop. This time the event will be hosted during their annual “Women’s Week” at the school in August. Their phenomenal team are keen to also do their part; while affording the school girls that they teach an opportunity to be pampered and educated on the health and care of their skin.
