Easter is around the corner which means it’s that time of the year again—Easter egg hunts, fun games, bunny cakes, chocolates, and just a whole lot of desserts served on the Easter table. This sounds all fun and games until you wake up a few days after with some horrific zits!
Sugary treats, as delicious and as satisfying as they are, are your one-way ticket to unwanted breakouts and, in the long-term, the terrifying sugar sag. Excessive sugar intake results in the production of free radicals which does nothing but damage cells all over the body, and yes, that includes the skin.
Fortunately, there are some things we can do to avoid the bad Easter skin while still enjoying the delicious treats your family and friends have prepared. Below, we’ve rounded up the things you can do to survive the Easter sweets.
3 Tips to Prevent Easter Breakout
Skip the cakey foundations
Thick and chemical-packed foundations can block your pores which will eventually lead to acne breakouts. So going into your Easter celebration smothered with cakey foundation while eating all the sweet treats and expecting to have the perfect skin the next morning is just a bit too unrealistic.
The key here is to keep it simple! Opt for bases that are breathable. Even better if there are some UV protection and moisturizing ingredients infused into the formula. Going as natural as possible is the way to go. Remember, less is more.
The easiest way to flush off the toxins from your Easter party? Water! It’s literally the oldest trick in the book. Drink enough water and stay as hydrated as you can to help your body excrete those unwanted treats. Plus, drinking three liters of water a day will also keep your skin looking as youthful as ever. Now that’s hitting two birds with one stone!
Chocolate is any sweet tooth’s best friend. When we think about dessert, chocolate immediately comes to mind. However, as insanely delicious as it is, milk chocolate is filled with processed fat and sugars.
Thankfully, vegan chocolate is now a thing! Instead of the bad stuff, it is sweetened using coconut sugar packed with vitamins and minerals. Not convinced yet? Coconut sugar also houses insulin which helps to lower blood sugar levels. So what are you waiting for? You better switch your traditional chocolate with vegan options for healthier skin and definitely happier animals!
Now that you finally know how to fight Easter’s dessert-filled celebration, you can now enjoy your time with family and friends free of guilt and definitely free of zits. By practicing these three simple tips, you’re well on your way to happier and healthier skin.
