People are more prone to acne in the winter time, because the cold air makes the skin dry. However, there are ways to avoid winter acne from occurring. One way is to keep the face clean. It is best to wash the face twice a day, once in the morning and once at night before bed.

This prevents dirt from clogging the pores, which is a common cause for acne. After washing the face, a person will also want to ensure they moisturize their face. This prevents dehydration of the skin. Another tip is to avoid using fragrance products on the face, which can cause irritation.

Avoiding winter acne requires some processes, such as: Keep your face clean. It's important to make sure the face is clean during winter. The air particle is full of dust and dirt particles that do easily clog the pores, resulting in acne. So it is crucial to clean the face whenever possible. Moisturizing is vital: because air dry, the skin becomes dehydrated as the cold air sucks out water or moisture from the skin, thereby resulting in the cracking or drying out of the skin's outer layer. No matter the skin type, it is important to use a nourishing cream during winter.

Things to avoid: avoid the use of products with fragrance in the period of winter because they cause skin irritation and aggravate seasonal skin conditions. Makeup containing some types of oils and waxes can cause skin pores to clog and result in further breakouts. Also, don't take long, hot showers because they dry your skin and also rob it of essential oils.
