Caring for acne-prone skin during the winter requires a balance between addressing acne concerns and preventing excessive dryness.  The cold weather and low humidity can affect your skin, potentially leading to increased dryness, discomfort and sensitivity.


 Here are some tips for acne care during the winter:


1. Smart, Gentle Cleansing

Use tepid water instead of warm will ensure that you do not get “squeaky” clean, aka strip your barrier.


2. Exfoliate

Carefully exfoliate so that you don’t strip your skin barrier.


3. Hydrate, Inside Out

Drink plenty of liquid, use a hydrating toner and humidifier to add moisture to the air in your home, especially while you sleep. 


4. Acne Treatment

Whether you are using Benzoyl Peroxide, BHA or AHAs, it is important to adjust the frequency based on your skin's needs.


5. Spot Treat

If you are feeling overly dry, when possible, spot treat with the Blemish Control Gel instead of treating the entire face.


6.  Moisturize

In order to have comfortable feeling skin, moisturizing is paramount. Choose a non-comedogenic,  lightweight moisturizer that will coat your skin and protect it from the dry, cold environment.


7. Sun Protection

Use sunscreen daily to protect your skin from UV damage.


8. Diet

Maintain a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole foods. Avoid comfort foods that are traditionally high in carbs, sugar and bad fats. Omega-3 fatty acids found in fish, flaxseeds, and walnuts may help reduce inflammation.
