I find that year-round, my skin is happier if I use gentle, fragrance-free products made for sensitive skin. I always use a non-comedogenic facial moisturizer with SPF 15. I have oily, acne-prone skin and never thought I should moisturize, but a gentle moisturizer actually calms down the oiliness. Especially in summer, I like to mix a little bit of liquid makeup into my moisturizer, to make my own tinted moisturizer.
My husband has psoriasis and has more, and worse, outbreaks in winter. I think it comes from irritated, dry skin. We switch to moisturizing body wash and a rich, fragrance-free body lotion.
And of course, drink plenty of water year-round for healthy skin and hair!
