UV Light vs Acne

Alot of people do not know how to get rid of their acne and name alot of fancy chemicals/treatments that only provide minimal benefit.

Ultra violet light worked for me when i was younger. A sun tan, from the sun or from artificial stand-up sun beds will dry your greasy skin of over-produced sebum and make it smoothe, tanned and clear. This is beneficial if done moderately. Some people may argue over the risk of skin disorders caused from UV light, but maybe the benefits of clear skin will outweight the risks.
