  • The detox specialist

    When the likes of Andrea Dellal and Mario Testino are in Rio, they call on Andrea Henrique for her seven-day detox. The health guru becomes your personal chef for the duration, while her sister Edna gives massages to aid slimming. Henrique has recently launched a delivery service in the city, Detox in Box, as well as a book, Detox, full of gluten- and dairy-free recipes.


    The plastic surgeon

    Brazil is home to some of the world’s best cosmetic surgeons and last year more than 1.5 million

    procedures were performed, with liposuction, facelifts and breast augmentation being the most popular. Dr Carlos Fernando Gomes de Almeida is the man to call – a protégé of the world-renowned surgeon Dr Ivo Pitanguy, Gomes de Almeida’s procedures are flawless and subtle, resulting in a super-secret client list that is said to include more than a few well-known names. Phone: (55 21) 2286-8255

    The dermatologist

    Regular dermatologist appointments are de rigueur in Brazil, since having great skin is a mandatory element of the nation’s beauty aesthetic. Beloved by

    actresses and Brazilian It girls like Andrea Viera Baptista, Juliana Neiva is the go-to for the skin savvy. While her E-Matrix laser facials are renowned, it’s Neiva’s in-depth knowledge and bespoke recommendations that her clients covet. Her latest import? “I love the results of SkinCeuticals Vitamin C Firming Mask – my clients are obsessed with the post-treatment glow.”


    The stylist

    Be it for a serious transformation or just a maintenance trim, Rio natives head to the Leblon neighborhood’s Crystal Hair salon for an appointment with Tiago Parente, who can update any style in just a few snips.

    The colorist

    While you’re at Crystal Hair, book in with Branca di Lorenzo, who is famed for creating the balayage color – a look synonymous with Brazilian beauties like actress Carolina Dieckmann and TV belle

    Fernanda Lima. Lorenzo expertly weaves lighter tones into the tips of the hair for a natural, sun-kissed look.
