Nurse Jamie’s Top 4 Winter Tips for Acne-Prone Skin
Cold winter weather can easily harm sensitive acne prone skin. Plus with the use of acne fighting products, the skin tends to become dry, flaky, irritated and more prone to breakouts.
As the weather gets cooler and humidity levels decrease, the skin tends to dry out and become dehydrated. The result is trapped oil and bacteria underneath the surface of the skin leading to increased breakouts.
- Choose Your Cleanser Wisely
Using a gentle cleanser will still help remove any unwanted residue from the surface of the skin, but it won’t leave you feeling dry or tight after washing your face. Try Nurse Jamie’s Clear 1 Acne Cleansing Bar in a Jar.
Cover the entire affected area on face and/or body with a thin layer, allowing lather to remain on skin about 2 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and pat dry. Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with once daily and then gradually increase to twice daily if needed or as directed by a doctor. If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day.
- Use A Hydrating Moisturizer
While acne skin may mean oily skin, it is still especially crucial to moisturize after cleansing your face in the winter months. We recommend following cleansing with Nurse Jamie’s Clear1 Acne Cleansing Bar in a Jar with the Clear 2 Clarifying Moisturizer.
Clear2 helps to soothe and hydrate skin to promote complexion clarity, and also helps keep pores clear without causing irritation. Ample doses of Kojic Acid and Phenylethyl Resorcinol help to brighten and even out skin tone. Soothe and hydrate delicate, sensitive skin without aggravating blemishes.

- Boost hydration
Hydration is very important in winter, when the temperatures drop. Be sure to include Hyaluronic acid products in your winter beauty regimen, as it serves as a natural humectant, which means it takes water from the air and locks it into your skin. Try Nurse Jamie’s hyaluronic acid rich EGF Botanical Complex.

Drinking enough water can also help to give your skin the moisture it needs while helping to maintain elasticity and prevent dryness.
Of course, never change the usage of your at home skin care products without checking with your specialist. Stay beautiful.
