That is why I love the summer! I am absolutely pale through out the year and my blemishes become very obvious. In the summer, laying out in the sun and going tanning, I get so dark that my blemishes are much less noticeable and my skin clears up a lot. I can even get away with not wearing make up for a week or two sometimes until I break out again or the tan fades. I know it's so bad for my skin, but the week I can go out make-up free and feel good about my skin is totally worth it! I'm on accutane, which has helped a lot in lessening the break outs, but the scars are still apparant. The only thing that really seems to hide them is the tanning.
