THE CHAT­TER­BOX

So, your ther­a­pist’s drop­ping more play-by-play com­men­tary than a sports re­porter? Say, “This feels great – I’d like to just re­lax and en­joy it.” If you’re ly­ing on your back, close your eyes to re­ally drive the point home.

THE PROD­UCT PRESCRIBER

Your fa­cial­ist in­sists your skin needs a pricey new set of po­tions and goops. Say, “I’d like to see how my skin feels as the day goes on – if I re­ally like it, I’ll come back later to get the prod­ucts.” Smart sw­erve, sis­ter.

THE BEAUTY SHAMER

A pointed crit­i­cism of your “huge” pores? No, not cool. If some­one pres­sures you to fix some­thing you’re fine with or makes you feel bad about your­self, that’s a red flag. Alert man­age­ment and leave, says Dr Amy Wech­sler, a der­ma­tol­o­gist who’s also a qual­i­fied psy­chi­a­trist.
