LE Beau Clinic and Spa will play a part in WA’s bid to send a local beauty to the Miss World beauty pageant at the end of the year.

The Kardinya day spa, which celebrated 20 years of operation in April, has been invited to partner with Miss World for 2017.

The Miss World event for WA will be held on May 28, with two finalists selected to represent the state against the rest of Australia.

Le Beau owner Karen Briffa-Skewes said the WA finalists would use the day spa during six weeks of intensive preparation ahead of the Australian decider.

“We’ll be helping the two finalists get into peak form to look their best,” Mrs Briffa-Skewes said.

“They’ll have unlimited access to our infrared sauna and spa and will work under the guidance of our naturopath to take care of their internal health.

“We’ll also do firming and cellulite treatments, as well as high-end clinical skin treatments.”

Mrs Briffa-Skewes believed Le Beau was approached by Miss World because of the reputation it has built over the past two decades.

“Le Beau was named the winner of the World Luxury Spa Award for 2015, we were a finalist in 2016 and we’re a finalist again this year,” she said.

Five of the women hoping to claim the WA Miss World crown will be at Le Beau this Saturday helping to collect money for Variety, with $2 from every treatment purchased on the day going to the kids’ charity.
