I thought I'd share a little bit of green beauty advice for anyone suffering from skin issues due to cold weather. Winter generally leaves me with dry & angry skin, and I think I've finally figured out how to deal with it. Something I've learned? Minor acne in the winter is likely caused by dry skin building up in your pores. The natural urge to spread nuclear-strength pimple poison all over it will just make it worse, trust me.
Get yourself an oil-free moisturizer, and don't just use it on your cheeks! Even if your T-zone seems greasy, it might actually be thirsty and overcompensating by getting shiny. My new favourite is called Garnier Moisture Rescue gel-cream. It's got natural antioxidants like vitamin E and grapeseed, both of which are helpful when you've got last night's alcohol seething out your pores. Bonus? I will definitely re-use the cute glass jar it comes in.
