The first thing to prepare your skin for the cold weather is to use an aloe vera based skin moisturizer on exposed skin. This way your skin does not get dried out by the cold weather and is not as susceptible to breakouts. Moisture is the key to protection against cold weather. It is important that in cold weather months you take fewer showers and make sure you apply hand & body lotion to your skin each day.
The more moisture your skin can absorb, the more resistant it will be to the cold weather and using a high quality skin moisturizer is the best first step.

Regarding your question, I wont say cold weather is good for acne as long as you moisturize well. It depends on your skin type. If you have oily skin, you probably won't break out as often even if you dont moisturize IMO but if you have dry skin, even you use moisturizer day and night, you can also be prone to acne. My uni lecturer had once taught me that yes, moisturizer can boost up your skin's hydration level instantly after you apply it but after sometimes it drops back to the original state. Yet, as what the above poster mentioned, moisture is the key. Stay hydrated by drinking more water and use moisturizer which can aslo help.
