Wasn’t it just yesterday that you were thinking about back-to-school bargains for fall? Now we’re into the holiday season, which kicks off on Thanksgiving and continues through New Year’s Day.

Q: Now that cold winter weather is here, my skin is breaking out more. Why is this happening and what can I do about it?

This season can also contribute to skin changes and, in some cases, even lead to breakouts. Have you noticed any changes? The winter months can take a “normal” skin type and turn it into a combination mess. Dryness, flakiness and dullness are all top complaints during the winter months, but another major issue is breakouts.

Plus, it’s fun to fool your non-vegan friends with the convincingly authentic appearance of the crumbled walnut “meat!”
