How to answer those nagging family questions about your skin

Author: Danielle Cauchi   Date Posted: 9 December 2017 

Decking the halls with boughs of holly and stuffing yourself with Christmas candies is fun and all, but the quote-on-quote ‘Most Wonderful Time Of The Year’ is also met with some very annoying commentary from extended family members.

It’s as though our second and third cousins and forever-displeased Aunties have had their passive-aggressive insults prepared since early November ready to go for Christmas lunch.

Since our skin is the first visible thing for nagging relatives to pick apart, we’ve paired some common statements with some awesome skin-care products, so you don’t have to hear them this Christmas time!



“You’re breaking out, sweetie. Don’t you wash your face?”


Of course, I wash my face. What kind of animal do you think I am?

We all know it’s a hassle and a half trying to find a good skin-care system that removes all traces of pore-clogging nasties, regardless of how many times you scrub your face.

The Vanity Planet Ultimate Skin Spa Facial Cleansing System is an invigorating facial brush system for daily cleansing, deep exfoliation and sensitive washing. With its clarifying 360-degree rotary action, you can really get deep into those pores and free them from the dirt, oil, makeup and dead skin cells that lie within.



“You’re looking tired these days. Are you sure you’re getting enough sleep, darling?”


Yes. As a matter of fact, I wish I was asleep right now, so I wouldn’t have to partake in this conversation.

For an instant pick-me-up, try Dr Lewinn’s Instant Radiance Booster.

It uses Aloe Vera as well as Bisabolol extract to hydrate and soothe dull, tired skin. Its powerful antioxidant ingredients also help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for a smoother, brighter complexion.

Take that, Aunt Susan.



 “Your skin’s a little dry, love. You’ve heard of moisturiser, haven’t you?”


Yes, I have. Have you heard of social etiquette?

Dr Lewinn’s Reversaderm Antioxidant Regenerative Cream is your best bet for a completely refreshed and reinvented complexion. It’s a lightweight, non-greasy moisturising cream that creates a thin veil across the skin that imitates the skin’s lipid structure, promoting restoration and forming a protective barrier.

Shea butter and French Saffron flood the skin with the intense hydration it needs for enhanced tone and radiance, whilst Vitamin C encourages cell regeneration, making the skin firmer, more resilient and all-in-all, much healthier and youthful.



“That neck’s getting a little saggy. You know, there’s some really good neck tightening exercises I saw on Facebook …”


Oh, so you don’t play Candy Crush 24/7? With all those game invites, I assumed that’s all you did – Ha!

Ponds Firm & Lift Age Miracle Targeted Lifting Massager is a fast-acting treatment specifically targeted to the neck and jaw to lift, firm and tighten the skin, thanks to an infusion of potent InstaLift.

Forget turkey necks. The only turkey you should have to worry about this Christmas is the one being served at dinner.
