I’ve been on acne.org for exactly a year now but during the winter I noticed that my skin got really sensitive to using it so I stopped for a while and only used the cleaner and the moisturiser. I re-started bp today just to see what happens and I got blotchy red skin in the areas where I put bp this morning. Have I become allergic? The redness is like rosacea and very patchy. Help?

Winter weather can also trigger rosacea flare-ups. Dry, cold air can set off redness in the cheeks, nose, and forehead, similar to facial flushing. If not addressed quickly, the symptoms can get progressively worse, causing small yet painful papules and pustules on the face.

Moisturizers are often the first defense against a winter rash because they help lock moisture into your skin.
