@abbie Hello, There are several reasons for acne in the cold season. The outside chill makes our skin extremely dry, making it prone to acne. Sometimes, the dandruff caused by dry hair can also cause it. Another major reason for acne breakout in this season is when you wash your face regularly with hot water which removes the protective layer on the skin along with moisture. Here are a few tips to treat it: Change your pillowcases regularly, exfoliate your skin (There is no harm in exfoliating your skin in winters. Exfoliate your skin 2-3 times in 10 days and no more than that. This prevents dead skin formation that can block your pores. Too much scrubbing can make your skin dry and cause acne), Moisturize daily, stay hydrated and take a nutritious diet.
