Sun - Good or bad for acne?

I went to the doc today and he says being in the sun helps acne. Thats not what I have heard. Let me know and any reference would be cool too. Thanks!

Re: Sun - Good or bad for acne?

yeah thats what my dr said, ummm..... it is true because it will clear up your acne for a short time, however it is very bad for your skin hence you shouldnt really do it. But it's your choice, i do it in the summer and it helps. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">

Re: Sun - Good or bad for acne?

I was a lifeguard last summer and spent much of the day under the sun. The sun helped me stay completely clear for the entire summer. However, when the fall hit, and i lost my tan, I broke out quite badly. I was probobly overdoing it with the sun, but everyone should still be careful. I read somewhere that too much sun exposure can cause acne to surface months later. I think this was certainly the case with me.

The sun is good for acne, but if you are going to be out in the sun make sure you wear a moisturizer with a spf of at least 15 so it won't take a toll on your skin.
