Every year, without fail, from when the leaves turn and until spring, my usually clear face sports a smattering of pimples. I do appreciate that I am lucky in that it isn’t full blown adult acne. But it is persistent enough to be annoying.The zits are omnipresent as if sharing some secret pact to not disappear without another taking their place.
Over time, I’ve worked out that the dry winter air is the causing factor – as in, my skin becomes dry! This bewildered me at first because I’ve never had dry skin and I drink plenty of water. But it made sense. Air conditioning, the outside air, heating . . . .
Following purchase of numerous cleansers, moisturisers and sunscreens, I now have a routine down pat which has kept my skin clear for the past two months. Don’t worry, I won’t be suggesting you drink more water. You should be doing that already!
