In early November after days and days of gorging on Halloween candy, I noticed pimples appearing on my usually clear face. (I just couldn't resist those Butterfingers!) Horrified I realized that duh, whatever I eat affects my skin. Literally a magic wand appeared in the form of Kate Somerville's new 24 Hour Pimple Punisher ($28). The long tube has two on the spot treatments – a clear gel for the AM and a strong acne treatment clay for the PM so it works clock to get rid of pesky pimples. For best results, start applying the formula when you start to feel that little bump in your skin, just as the pimple is starting to form. Once I started targeting the area, using it consistently day and night, it took about two days for the pimple to completely go away! (I didn't wear makeup in that area to keep it really clean.) I actually now sometimes dab on the clear AM gel in certain little areas around my nose before I put on concealer so I don't get breakouts. So with the upcoming holidays and Christmas treats galore, make sure you have this magic wand in your makeup bag for any pimple emergency!
