Re: chlorine and acne... what i've experienced
You could have cleared up due to the cholrine or the sun or even both. Sun exposure will temporarily clear your skin but when the exposure is not continued the skin's condition will dramatically worsen. Moreover, it isn't rare to read people experience good results from cholrine. From what I have read the success rate is 50/50, half the people say it's great while the other half say it just antagonises their skin.
Did you notice your skin was much drier than normal? If this was the case then it's most likely your skin got most benefit from the chlorine. If your skin was on the other hand much oiler then it's the result of the sun exposure as the sun stimulates the skin to produce more oil to keep it moisturised.
Another point, if chlorine can clear acne then you would have to find a way to replicate this in your home especially if you don't have a pool nearby. Finding the right type of chlorine to use at the correct ratio to water would be very important due to the fact that cholrine is a bleaching agent, but I'm sure it's worth looking in to.
