This is the second winter in a row where I've broken out in cystic spots I think it's even worse this year, it's ALWAYS during winter and during summer (I live in London, UK so summer still isn't that hot) my skin is 97% flawless I don't wear make up during summer and my confidence is always high, but as soon as late September hits I get one cystic spot then another until like the pictures my face is covered the pictures were taken today I woke up and my cheeks had flared up even though yesterday they were practically clear. Last year I hadn't done much research and thought the cause was oily skin so I started using Salyic acid face washes and oil free moisturisers now after doing extensive (I went rather crazy) research I learnt that I have dry skin and so now I have bought a humidifier, a face steamer I am now using cetaphil face cleanser, origins exfoliator and oliatum face repair cream and I've only been using the exfoliater and and moisturiser for 2 days and seems hasn't help since I broke out crazy this morning however I did put my face over my humidifier last night before I went to sleep to try steam a bit (starting to think big mistake) so now I've read about vitamin D? Since I only get it in winter, I'm open to any advice and hope I'm not the only one suffering with winter acne it's completely put a stop to my social life and I barely go college I hate leaving my house :'(

I've had cysts and the only thing that cured it for me, was diet.
You have nice skin, and I'm quite certain you'll heal up. But to prevent future cysts, diet is the only thing that will work.
I don't know why I'm going around telling people this, but since I've finally found a clear solution at the age of 30 (17 years of acne), I'm going to pass my knowledge on to as many people as possible.
