Q: What other skin problems beyond dehydration worsen in winter months? A: Eczema and body acne, Kauvar says. Eczema will worsen as your skin gets dryer. So if you have eczema, Kauvar suggests taking your preventative maintenance seriously (moisturizing, protecting skin, taking any prescribed medications, etc.). It's very hard to control eczema once it starts getting bad. If you're already to the point where you are itching, take an over-the-counter antihistamine to help stop it.
Body acne can also worsen in winter months. When we bundle up in layers of clothing we often sweat. The sweat then sits on our skin and causes breakouts. To prevent this, wear multiple layers and peel them off as you get warm -- before you start sweating. When exercising, keep sweat from sitting on your skin by wearing moisture-wicking fabrics to prevent sweat from sitting on your skin.
