Q: Now that cold winter weather is here, my skin is breaking out more. Why is this happening and what can I do about it?
MyChelle Dermaceuticals licensed esthetician Catie Wiggy responds:
Winter is a time of year that brings wonderful things: holiday traditions, comfort foods and cold, snowy weather. This season can also contribute to skin changes and, in some cases, even lead to breakouts. Have you noticed any changes? The winter months can take a “normal” skin type and turn it into a combination mess. Dryness, flakiness and dullness are all top complaints during the winter months, but another major issue is breakouts.
