There is nothing like indulging in a decadent chocolate or two over the Easter Break, but it’s those pesky post Easter breakouts that need to stop! Don’t let Easter ruin your complexion, follow my post Easter breakout tips and watch your complexion return to the pre-Easter glow.

1)    Get your hands on a gentle AHA facial spritz to assist the skin in breaking down skin plugs that lead to spots. Cosmedix Purity Balance is the product my clients turn to for general acne breakouts and skin oiliness. To use, cleanse the skin, then spritz the Purity Balance onto a cotton round and wipe over the skin. Then apply your serums and moisturiser as usual. All skins can use such a product say every 2nd day, but in a time like post Easter step up the usage to once a day. Skin will be smoother, pores clearer and your complexion brighter.
2)    Make sure you are exfoliating with an AHA exfoliator such as the Skin Matrix AHA Exfoliating Scrub. Gentle jojoba beads whisk away dead skin cells whilst the AHA’s take care of pore build up. Don’t over exfoliate! 1-2 times a week is plenty


3)    If you get oily shine towards the end of the day or you have under the surface breakouts that do not come to a head the best mask for you to use is the Cosmedix Clear Clarifying Mask. Use once a week and apply to the face for 10 minutes then rinse. Once you have done this a few times you can do your AHA scrub and then follow directly with the Cosmedix Clear Mask. Only use as such if tolerated by the skin.
4)    Do not pick! More often than not we get more scars and marks for weeks after by picking. Book in for a 15 minute or more session with your Skin Care Specialist and allow this to be done in a professional and sterilized manner that will not leave you with marks for weeks after.
5)    Cut out alcohol, processed foods for minimum 5 days if not 7. Try it and watch how quickly your skin recovers! If we want our skin to heal we need to feed it with fresh healthy foods to enable the body to heal and cleanse. Lots of water too!
Now you have my cheat breakout list post Easter, we are all ready for next Easter to be indulgent yet not a spot worry in the world.
