We all struggle to maintain healthy skin throughout colder months, especially winter but there are a few things you can do to help your acne prone skin survive this winter.

Use a Moisturiser Daily

Applying a non-comedogenic, light, water based moisturiser to acne prone skin is a great way to help restore moisture balance. Cold air can dry out skin, which in theory sounds great to an acne sufferer with oily skin, but in actual fact, this makes oily skin overproduce sebum, further exacerbating acne breakouts.

Its all-natural, dissolve in water, no known side effects clinically proven formula contains Lactoferrin which works in two ways. Firstly, it inhibits the growth of p.acnes bacteria that is present on most people’s skin and one of the causes of acne. By stopping the growth of this bacteria, lactoferrin reduces the number of new skin blemishes forming. Secondly its anti-inflammatory properties mean that the size of spots is reduced and blemishes heal quicker resulting in a smoother complexion.

Be Mindful of Clothing

Acne can also affect the body as well as the face, so when it comes to clothes, think about the fabric. Synthetic materials such as polyester can prevent skin from breathing, causing overheating and sweating. Sweat mixed with dead skin cells can clog pores which can make acne much worse. Cotton is a breathable fabric and much kinder to skin.

Heating at Home

It is a good idea to wear loose clothing, again preferably cotton, as central heating also causes sweating which if you are wearing polyester or wool, will be unable to escape therefore causing itching and irritation once gain to skin and increasing the likelihood of breakouts.

Try Not to Stress

Stress releases the hormone cortisol which in large amounts can cause inflammation within the body and this includes on the skin, worsening acne. So try and ensure your stress levels remain low. Consider taking part in mindful activities such as yoga to help manage stress and your skin.

 

Winter skin isn’t much fun for anyone, but is especially difficult when you have acne prone skin. Treating your skin right from the inside as well as the outside is the best way to help support its health.
