How is the cold snap affecting your skin ?

Not sure if this is the best place for this topic but in Northern Europe, like some other parts of the world, we are experiencing unusually cold weather. The UK is apparently having its coldest weather since the 1960's and it looks and feels like the Arctic - just look at this satellite image - http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/in_depth/8447023.stm

Anyway, my skin is normally clear most of the time thanks to Dan's regime. However, in the last 10 days or so I have broken out on my chin quite badley. I understand that dry skin can trigger acne outbreaks, though in the past I have not really had any problems in the winter.

I am bringing back my skin under control, the AHA seems to be a useful weapon for this (perhaps because it is exfoliating the skin) So my question is is anyone else experiencing unsusually cold weather having skin problems ?

The dry cold weather usually makes my skin dry and a bit flaky, so while I hardly have to use any moisturizer in the summertime, I always need to in the winter.
