Does dry skin cause acne?

dry skin acne

Dry skin does not cause acne but definitely can make it worse. When the skin is dry it's outer protective layer cracks, it is more susceptible to infection and it heals much slower. This happens frequently in winter. The dry cold air that that surrounds us in the fall and winter months, increases the natural evaporation of moisture of our skin, damages its outer protective layer and causes more acne breakouts.
