Winter Acne

Many people find it strange that their skin continues to break out during the winter. Colder winter temperatures should help to alleviate acne, right? Well, not for everyone. For a lot of people, as the air dries out their skin during the winter, their skin actually produces more oil. This is actually very scientific: if your skin dries out, your oil glands will go into overdrive to compensate what it “should” be producing. This can create a balancing nightmare that can be hard to handle on your own. Dr. Jamie Weisman leads Medical Dermatology Specialists in Atlanta as a nationally recognized board certified dermatologist who has dedicated herself to providing superior and patient-centered care.

Dr. Weisman understands the challenges that many people face with seasonal changes and how they affect their skin. Finding the appropriate face wash and moisturizer combination is one of the top priorities to treating winter acne.
