The good thing about derma skin­care is that one can see re­sults within a shorter time. I’m par­tic­u­larly happy about the night cream.

which starts at 6am) and then mak­ing ap­pear­ances and em­cee­ing din­ner shows in the even­ing, can be harsh on skin,” says the mother of one.

Ear­lier this year she no­ticed, to her hor­ror, that her skin was not quite as firm as it used to be. In fact, she thought it looked like it was start­ing to sag. “Look­ing good is part and par­cel of my job (apart from the Break­fast Show and em­cee events, Gan is also the host of Astro Go Shop) and un­for­tu­nately, cam­eras tend to bru­tally show up ev­ery tiny wrin­kle, spot and other im­per­fec­tions,” she says with a laugh. “I knew I had to do some­thing… and fast. I want and need to see fast re­sults.”

Walk­ing into a phar­macy one day, she chanced upon a Eucerin Skin Test Ma­chine which, the beauty con­sul­tant ex­plained, was used to check skin for tex­ture, pores, hy­per­pig­men­ta­tion and firm­ness. These Test Ma­chines are avail­able at se­lected phar­ma­cies in ma­jor ci­ties in the coun­try.

In­trigued, Gan im­me­di­ately re­quested to have the test done. Then, based on the re­sults, the beauty con­sul­tant ad­vised her as to which prod­ucts would be suit­able for her age and skin type.

“It was then that I re­mem­bered I had ac­tu­ally used Eucerin derma skin­care in my teens; be­lieve it or not, I had a lot of pim­ples at that time,” she re­calls. “So I thought ’why not?’. Af­ter all, derma skin­care prod­ucts are de­vel­oped by skin ex­perts and rec­om­mended by der­ma­tol­o­gists.”

Gan walked out of the phar­macy with a huge smile and a com­plete range of prod­ucts. “I’m lazy in that sense. In­stead of buy­ing dif­fer­ent prod­ucts from dif­fer­ent brands, I pre­fer to buy a com­plete range from a sin­gle brand in­stead.
