Post Is sun good for the skin?

Would sun bathing help your pimples dry up? or is it bad for them?
I'm on tetracyline and differin at the momment does that make your skin more sensitive to the sun?
If i came off these products how long does it take for your skin to go back to its natural sensitivity.

Anyone who has information on this give me a reply! thanks!

The sun may initially make your acne look better (a tan makes everything look better) but in the long run you're going to get damage to your skin from the sun.....wrinkles are the least of the problems, sun cancer is the worst. Always use spf!

I sun bath for my pimples on my back but I put on a lot of sunscreen on my back before i got outside. If you wet your back a little while your out there the sun helps it more
