Seasonal changes in skin lipids may worsen acne in winter

During the winter months, ceramides in the stratum corneum of acne skin are found to be lowered. This coincides with an increase in trans-epidermal water loss that is more often found in acne-prone skin compared to healthy skin. These lower levels of ceramides partly resolve in the summer months, according to a study published in the journal Experimental Dermatology (Aug. 2018; 27(8):833-836). Watch the video below for more details.
