You might be hoarding on sweaters and jackets for your body but your skin is hardly prepared for the sudden dip in temperatures. Your skin is naturally going to take some time to get used to the cold. Harsh winds, rains and even snow—all of these can end up causing breakouts. This is why winter skin care becomes all the more important for your skin.

Winters are when the skin turns overtly dry. This leads to dead skin buildup and while you’re skipping your exfoliation routine, you will soon experience breakouts because the dead skin clogs your pores causing acne.

You stocked up on the best cleansers and moisturisers for your winter skin care routine but you ended up with a tiny zit right after using them, right? Worry not because your skin is slowly adjusting itself to the new products. Give it time to drink up all the essential nutrients.

If you’re travelling to a different time zone, chances are that your winter skin care routine might take a backseat. Moreover, winters make you rather lethargic and following a skin care routine to the tee could be the last thing on your priority list. A word of advice—don’t do that!

Blame it on the central heating

While you can’t survive the extreme cold without a heater, you should know that it could actually be the reason behind your skin breaking out suddenly. When there’s a heater in the room, it automatically means there’s less moisture in the air. This causes your skin to feel overly dry. To compensate, your skin starts producing excess oil leading to acne!
