In brief: Climate and skin

In warmer climates, increased heat and humidity can cause your skin to sweat, leaving you more prone to breakouts, especially if your skin is oily.
Cold temperatures often mean low humidity, which dries out skin. Bitterly cold winds also strip moisture from exposed skin.
