Living on a small island we are fortunate to be surrounded by artists, carpenters, yogis, fitness gurus, realtors, creative business men and women, and many other professionals that kick, spice, and soothe, daily life on Martha’s Vineyard.
This summer has been Bluewave’s best to date. We want you to meet the Vineyarders that love Bluewave Body Company and hear why.
Lucia Hayman has the spotlight.
Lucia is a private chef, owner of http://www.vineyardmaiden.com and student of The Institute of Integrated Nutrition. She teaches Pilates, nutrition, spin class and advocates for consumer knowledge in sourcing your food. She is a self-styled rebel who wants to change the world by changing the way we eat, consume and love our bodies, mind, and spirit.
L. Hi Lucia, welcome to Bluewave. We love that you integrate all aspects of healthy living. Why are handcrafted, all-natural cosmetics important to you?
Lucia. As a chef I know it’s all about the quality of the ingredients that creates delicious food. It’s this concept that drew me to Bluewave. High quality ingredients without chemicals and with ingredients that heal and nourish naturally, that’s what we need and that’s what we need to teach our children.
L. Talking of children, what’s happening in their lives?
Lucia. The biggest event happening right now is Lee, my eldest daughter is going to college. I’ve taught her how to take care of herself as best I can, now she’s ready to fly. Today, I’m sending her and a few friends off with some important skin care lotions that I really feel are the whole package in head-to-toe care. They feel good and smell good and it makes me smile to think these scents and creams will remind them of home, of our summer days at the beach and their aftersun care; oiling the skin, exfoliating the skin, rubbing their feet, rituals that we have practiced together since Lee was little.
I want her to take a little Vineyard with her, and no better way then with products made right here in Edgartown, her hometown.
L.That’s great Lucia, thanks, what would you pick for her as she heads off-island? Let’s put a care package together.
Lucia. Cleansers, are key. The Everyday Light Facial Lotion is great for teens. It contains jojoba oil and rosehip seed, willowbark and white tea, helps balance sebum naturally and nourish the skin.
Argan oil for the hair, mixed with coconut oil, marshmallow extract and jojoba oil. For their lips, I picked a Lip scrub and balm to soften and repair.
Nothing gets rid of hard/dead skin and build up like a good Exfoliating Sugar Scrub. I like the scent of Island Girl with Shea body butter, sugar, with a mild scent of beach grass, beach plum, bay rose. To finish the package and round out their overall body treatment I picked a soft body wash and lotion, I like the Stay Gold and Tropicale. Both have hints of fruit and citrus and are kind to body and environment. Just perfect.
L. Thanks for supporting local and handcrafted, Lucia. Let us know how things are going with the girls.
Lucia. My pleasure.
