I have noticed during the past few years that my extremely mild acne gets really bad during the winter. I get these large bumpy zits on my forehead and sometimes around my hairline. I THINK this has to do with the dry weather and the fact that I dont perspire leads to the build up of bacteria and dead skin cells. I still haven't found an answer yet though. Does anybody else suffer from these symptoms during the winter?? How can i prevent this from happening this year? I really need help because its almost fall, and i dont want to live through the cycle again!

Yeah, it's a pretty common cycle. Some people tend to breakout worse during the summer, but most of us breakout worse following nature's hormonal trend. During the Fall & Winter months and then it starts to get better toward Spring & Summer. If you think about it, when do babies and flowers start to bloom, spring! Yet that couldn't have happened if the birds & the bees weren't "busy" during the winter. All that extra testosterone IS good for something....just not when it causes us to breakout

Studies have shown that your acne is best in the summer because of sunlight and low stress levels..
