Winter Breakouts

Im am an 18 year old male that just realized I only suffer from acne in the winter. In the summer its just an occasional pimple that most teenagers should expect. As soon as winter comes around, my cheeks and shave area on my face blow up with red dry acne and occasional whiteheads. I just started taking tetracycline (2 months running with no results) and i use a topical azelaic acid at night. After doing some research, I decided I was aggravating my skin too much and combined with freezing, dry winter air, was breaking out. Any tips on skin moisturization? I don't think I suffer from hormonal acne or anything that cannot be healed with some lotion. But, seeing as I have never used moisturizer in the past, I have no idea what to look for or what to use and how to use it.

Anyone else have the same problem? How do you keep your face moisturized?
