Now that winter is upon us, can you feel your skin getting dryer, cracking and rough, not soft and smooth? Moisturize this winter, acne or not!  Colder weather also means dryer weather and that can wreak havoc on our skin.  For younger people this will cause more frequent breakouts because your sebaceous glands will be working hard to keep your skin moisturized.  With washing your face and applying products that contain acids, like benzoyl peroxide, glycolic acid, salicylic acid and alpha hydroxy acid. These acids will also cause drying and flaking.  So along with the COLD weather causing dryness and wind; we have our sebaceous glands in over drive.  This is a lot of work for your tiny sebaceous glands trying to keep you moisturized and this can lead to more chances for a breakout.  Stay moisturized acne or not!!!
