Look and Feel Your Best Inside and Out

Hands up if you felt like this on a gorgeous but very hot day in London
Sweating is good to cool our body temperature down but what happens when it becomes a problem. Hyperhydrosis is characterised by excessive sweating even when your body doesn’t need cooling down. Excessive sweating can occur on the head, armpits, soles of the feet and palms of the hands
For underarms, here are some tips to help:-
✅ avoid tight fitting clothes and man made fabrics
✅ use antiperspirants as opposed to deodorants
✅ wear white or black (as opposed to blue) clothing to minimise the signs of sweating
✅ consider underarm pads to absorb sweat and protect delicate or expensive clothes
✅ According to National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidelines, you can use 20% aluminium chloride hexahydrate preparations such as roll-on antiperspirants and sprays, which are available over-the-counter
~ apply at night just before sleep after carefully drying the area
~ wash the product in the morning
~ apply every 1-2 days as tolerated until symptoms improve
~ avoid shaving the area and using hair removal products within 12 hours of application and do not bath immediately before use
If it doesn’t improve, you can consider treatments eg:-
✅ Iontophoresis - the sites are immersed in warm water (or a wet contact pad may be applied) through which a weak electric current is passed. This introduces charged ions into the skin which inhibits the function of the sweat glands in that area.
It is mainly suitable for the palms and soles, as treatment of the underarm is less practical
✅ BOTOX which is delivered by multiple intradermal injections to the affected areas.
BOTOX is licensed for the treatment of axillary hyperhidrosis and may also be used for palmar, plantar, and craniofacial (scalp & face). The effect may last for 6–9 months
If you are having trouble with sweaty armpits, we can help with Botox treatment. Email admin@DrTerry.com to book an appointment. Stay cool everyone 😎 #excessivesweating #botoxtreatment #hyperhydrosis

It’s going to be a scorching few days ahead so here are some tips to avoid heat stroke and sun damage to the skin
~ Put your water bottle in the fridge overnight so you have cold water to drink throughout the day. Even better if you put it in the freezer so the ice will slowly melt in the bottle
~ If you’re in your own garden, at home or in your office, carry a cold water spritzer with you so you can cool yourself down
~ If you don’t have air conditioner, put some ice cubes in a bowl in front of the fan so the wind 💨 will be cool
~ Keep your blinds close in your bedroom so the heat from the sunlight does not enter the room
~ Apply an antioxidant serum to give extra protection for your DNA
~ Apply SPF 50 before you head out and bring it along with you to reapply. It’s easy to rub off when you sweat or when you wear your mask
~ Avoid heavy meals. Opt for light salads and smoothies
~ Take an Omega 3 supplement 2000mg which reduces the skin susceptibility to UV damage by 50%
~ Avoid any retinols or AHA’s the next few days
Enjoy the good weather but protect yourself 😎 #sunprotection #skinprotection

As we grow wiser with age, we hope to look our best so it reflects the confidence we have in ourselves with time

Our face changes due our genetics, environment, lifestyle and hormones affecting our skin, soft tissues, muscle and bones. We can predict what will happen to the face so we can better plan and prepare for the years to come. We can slow down the ageing process through skin products, skin treatments or non-surgical cosmetic procedures. Subtlety is key and the aim is to restore youthful features without changing the way you look

If you like our approach and would like to discuss your current concerns, please email us on admin@DrTerry to book a consultation so we can assess and create a bespoke plan for you. Here’s to looking and feeling great with each passing year, naturally and holistically #antiageing #skintreatments #cosmeticprocedures

Are you ready to travel again?
In the light of Covid-19, please check with the airline and immigrations at your destination country what their criteria is for travelling in terms of Covid-19 testing. As we’ve been helping our patients prepare for their trip (in terms of testing and boosting their immunity with Vitamin C injections), some require a negative PCR swab test before they even board the plane while some require a negative swab test before entering the country
Please take note our recognised lab which we use will provide the results of the PCR swab test within 48 hours and most airlines/countries require testing no earlier than 3 days of travelling so please plan accordingly and not leave it to the last minute. We don’t want you to miss your flight so if you’re unsure, please get in touch with us and we can advise when to come in for your test
You can book the test online www.drterry.com or email us at admin@DrTerry.com for more information. Here’s to a safe and smooth trip #travelsafe #covid19testing #pcrswabtest

Can your skin breakout after stopping the pill? Unfortunately we see it too often in clinic

Acne is one of the many reasons women are prescribed birth control. It often controls or clears the acne but when you try to get off it, it can come back in a raging vengeance, even if you’ve never suffered from acne prior to starting the pill. The pill doesn’t fix hormone issues, it only suppresses them. We also have patients who come to see us wanting to get off the pill but need help to avoid a bad breakout when they do

Why do women develop acne after stopping the pill? Many of the causes are a direct result of what the birth control pill has done to the body while on it:-
1️⃣ Androgen Rebound - excess androgen production after a period of suppression of natural hormones. Androgen controls sebum production
2️⃣ Micronutrient depletion eg Zinc which affects immunity of the skin
3️⃣ Gut dysbiosis leading to leaky gut, food sensitivity and increased inflammation

What can you do to avoid or reduce the breakout after stopping the pill? If you can, start the preparation 3 months before the stop date and continue for the following 3 months. If you haven’t done any preparation, these steps will still benefit your skin
1️⃣ Support your gut - as a minimum, take a probiotic and digestive enzyme
2️⃣ Balance your sugar. Sugar converts testosterone to DHT which is 3 times more potent, leading to excess sebum production. Eat regular nutrient dense meals, including protein and healthy fat in each meal. You can add Chromium Picolonate too to reduce sugar cravings
3️⃣ Eat fiber daily - this keeps things moving in your gut, removing toxins and helping you feel full
4️⃣ Support lover detoxification - adding milk thistle, dandelion, broccoli seed extract or N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC). Cut down on alcohol which affects liver function

In the clinic, depending on consultation, we may also recommend food sensitivity, stool test and hormone testing (only applicable after stopping the pill because it would all be suppressed while on the pill). We hope this post helps. If you have any questions on acne post stopping the pill, please let us know. You can also get in touch on admin@DrTerry.com

Sharing one of our favourite post from @dr_terry_ ✨Love this quote from Coco Chanel ~ “Nature gives you the face at twenty; it’s up to you to merit the face you have at fifty.”
It’s true that if we left things to nature, women would look 5-10 years older soon after hitting 50 years old. I see it in clinic but have now been documented by researchers from the University of Vienna who studied almost 600 points on volunteers faces using computers to map the effects of aging on men and women aged between 20 and 90. The researchers found women's faces aged 'quicker' than a man of the same age once they hit menopause
After 50 – the average age at which the menopause starts – age-related changes suddenly sped up in women. They rapidly experienced noticable differences such as their eyes appearing smaller, the nose and ears lengthening and faces becoming flatter overall due to a loss of fat and thinning of the skin. The ‘peak’ in the process continued until 60, after which it settled down again. The acceleration is thought to be related to the loss of the sex hormone oestrogen following the menopause
Oestrogen is known for many benefits, not just for protecting the brain from dementia, the bones from osteoporosis, the heart from heart disease but it also has a positive effect on the protein collagen, which gives skin its elasticity. Loss of oestrogen causes the skin to be thinner, more sensitive, less firm and elastic, drier and they can also notice more facial hair growth. Loss of oestrogen also causes the bone to be re-absorbed, resulting in less defined cheekbones, flattening of the face, hollowing of the temples, shortening of the jaw and shrinking of the chin, resulting in jowls and loss of the “beauty triangle”
Depending on when patients come to see me, I help prepare them for their 40s and 50s, slowing down the ageing process and helping them look their best with each passing year. This is typically a gradual program of targeted skin care, aesthetic treatments done subtly, optimising nutrition and hormones to “age gracefully”
Do you agree with the quote made by Coco Chanel? #antiageing #hormonereplacementtherapy #menopausechanges

Trying to find a good doctor that would put me on the right path to naturally curing my hormonal acne wasn’t easy at all, but once I found Dr. Terry I looked no further. She really took the time to understand me and tailor a plan that perfectly suits me. Now, thanks to her, I have seen incredible improvements to both my face and back in just a matter of months.

A big thank you to Dr Terry because she really has taken years off my face!

The improvement has been significant and everyone has commented how “well rested” I look!
