Owner of Exeter-based Purity Skincare & Beauty, Mariam Badavi, announces two new sporting ambassadors to her Skin Angels campaign ‘Don’t play games with your skin’. International rugby stars Alec Hepburn and Don Armand join Mariam and her fellow ambassadors, singer songwriter Clara Bond and David Greensmith, Business Development Manager of Exeter City Council to reach young people in Exeter and help educate them on the dangers of not using daily sunscreen.
Mariam, a former nurse at Exeter’s R D & E Hospital, set up the Skin Angels initiative to share her knowledge with young people to enable them to make informed choices about skincare and skin protection. Regularly giving up her time for free to visit local schools and colleges with her team of therapists (Skin Angels), she helps to educate teachers and young people on the dangers of sun damage. She said: “I’m thrilled to welcome Alec and Don. I think girls mostly understand the importance of looking after their skin, however many boys today don’t tend to listen, and this is particularly why having these incredible new sporting ambassadors on board will really help to get that message out there.”
