People often expect their skin conditions to improve during the winter. However, you may be disappointed, in fact people with acne-prone skin often develop winter breakouts.

Most people want to know the reason behind the development of winter breakouts. So, to be precise, winter breakouts are caused due to the excessive production of sebum, an oily substance that is released by the skin and leads to acne.

Not only winter breakouts, but people also develop blemishes during the winter due to excessively dry skin.

Let us read about some tips to prevent winter breakouts.


Best Tips To Prevent Winter Breakouts

Here is the list of five best tips for you if you want to get rid of the winter breakouts.

1. Drink Plenty of Water: One of the best ways to prevent winter breakouts is to stay hydrated. Drinking water balances the excessive oil produced by the skin and prevents the clogging of pores.

2. Exfoliation: As mentioned above, dry skin produces excessive oil during the winter which ultimately leads to winter breakouts. Exfoliating your skin is very important for clearing the pores that are clogged due to the oil. Once the pores get cleared, there are very less chances of acne and winter breakouts.


3. Avoid Harmful Skin Products: Prevent the use of harmful skin products as they may worsen the symptoms of acne and therefore lead to winter breakouts. Instead, use mild cleansers and moisturizers that are non-comedogenic in composition.

4. Clean Your Face Frequently: You should clean your face frequently to get rid of the excess oil and dirt. This will not only prevent the clogging of pores but also keep winter breakouts at bay.

5. Moisturize Your Face With Humectants: People who have dry skin should preferably use moisturizers that are rich in humectants such as glycerine, hyaluronic acid, propylene glycol, etc. This will keep your skin moist and reduces dryness, which in turn prevents winter breakouts.

6. Dietary Modifications: Foods with high-glycemic indexes have often been found to be related to acne and winter breakouts. Therefore, you should make some dietary modifications to prevent winter breakouts. Consuming foods with a low-glycemic index has been found to be helpful in preventing the development of acne.
