MEET TERESA’S MOST TRUSTED EXPERTS
From the health professionals to beauty insiders, these are the people and places Teresa swears by.
Dr Sam Bunting, Dermatologist
Dr Sam Bunting is a London-based cosmetic dermatologist specialising, quite simply, in great skin. She’s passionate about making a dermatologist’s advice more accessible and helping women understand how to care for their skin. She’s an expert at all skin concerns, and I always send my rosacea-suffering clients to her for further treatment.
Dr Michael Prager, Cosmetic Doctor
One of Europe’s most skilled practitioners of cosmetic medicine, London-based, German-born and internationally educated Dr Michael Prager has been the key opinion leader for treating his patients in the most naturally attractive way.
Unlike many other practitioners who treat the different parts of the face in isolation, Dr Prager’s method is to focus on the face as a whole. To me, he’s just a great all-round injector and his results always look natural.
Dr Issy Mahmood, Dental and Facial Dentist
Dr Issy Mahmood's surgery is based in the prestigious Harley street and aims to provide top quality treatments that are gentle, relaxed and affordable. No one understands the facial anatomy like a dentist, which is why I always recommend Dr Issy to my clients that are looking for jaw and lip fillers.
Dr Sabrina Shah-Desai, Ophthalmic Plastic Reconstructive and Cosmetic Surgeon
A renowned cosmetic surgeon, Dr Sabrina Shah-Desai specialises in the eye area, which is why I constantly recommend her to clients that are looking to rejuvenate the fragile skin around the eye. She has over 20 years of clinical experience and I am always so impressed with her under eye filler and eyelid rejuvenation work.
Caroline Hirons, Skincare Expert
Caroline Hirons is a highly experienced, professional aesthetic therapist with extensive industry knowledge and a passion for skincare. Over the course of her 20-year career she has developed facials for numerous brands in the industry and continues to work as a consultant. I particularly admire Caroline’s passion for decoding and demystifying the often confusing world of skincare for women of all ages.
VIVAMAYR Medical Spa
VIVAMAYR, one of the best medical Spas in Europe and worldwide has really changed the wellness game. On its detox retreats highly experienced medical doctors, trained in Modern Mayr Medicine, help you to heal and achieve an advanced level of health and wellbeing.
Its program has successfully treated patients with a range of conditions including: diabetes, insomnia, hormonal imbalance, adrenal fatigue and stress-related burnout, and it also solved my issues with acne, through cleansing and controlling the gut.
Rosemary Ferguson, Nutritionist
Rosemary is one of the best nutritionists out there, not only because she is hugely knowledgable about her subject, but because she’s real and just gets it. I go to her for all kinds of nutrition advice but she’s especially clued up on the skin-gut connection and treating the complexion from the inside out.
Rather than recommending full life overhauls, Rosemary’s advice is always realistic—she knows the small tweaks you can make to completely change your life.
Unwind London, Pain Relief Clinic
I first went to Unwind London to fix the severe back pain I was experiencing after years of bad posture and so I know for a fact that their treatments truly work. The founder and head massage therapist has over 23 years of experience, and is well known around London’s Notting Hill and Kensington for providing quick pain relief to her clients. From Reiki which re-centres the body and mind, to an intense sports massage, they have an extensive range of treatments available.
Larry King, Celebrity Hair Stylist
One of the biggest names in hair right now, Larry performs his hair wizardry on a client list that includes Pixie Lott and Poppy Delevingne. His approach to hair is simple—he makes your hair look the best it ever has, which is why his expert (but realistic) advice is sought out by the world’s biggest publications. And trust me—visit his South Kensington salon and you’ll never want to leave.
Maire Weaver, Acupuncturist
I love to go and see Maire Weaver at the London Acupuncture Clinic. She uses the Five Element Acupuncture approach, which focusses on our changing cycles as well as environmental forces to diagnose and treat all kinds of ailments.
The clinic is popular for clients looking to treat conditions such as stress, pain and fertility issues, but I have found it to be the perfect support system to help me find harmony in my emotions.
Susanna Cohen, Stylist and Art Director
Susanna Cohen is an award winning stylist, art director, television commentator and beauty journalist. She’s reported for the likes of CNN and Sunday Times Style, and was the beauty director at Marie Claire for many years. As a stylist, Susannah has worked with fashion powerhouses from Chanel to Dior and Armani, as well as styling for private and VIP clients such as Victoria Beckham, Rene Zellweger and Christy Turlington.
Nadia Narain, Yoga Teacher
Nothing makes me feel calmer than a session of yoga, especially with Nadia as the teacher. This expert yogi has been teaching for over 20 years, and holds weekly classes as well as retreats and private sessions. You can also experience her calming approach and yoga know-how at home through her many informative instructional DVDs.
There’s no better way to start my day than with a morning workout, and when I’m in London, I love to visit Bodyism. Founded by James Duigan in 2006, its ethos is all about strengthening the mind-body connection, so the classes and sessions feel like a mental workout and de-stresser just as much as they do physically.
