Acne solution, sunburning?

Hi, I wanna say first of all that I know sun burnin aint a good thing, but my acne is 10X worse than the worst people in the proactive commercials. I tried all the stuff from the blemish control BP in the dollar stores to proactive and all the other things like proactive (generic and brand name) - Now I was thinkin since tomorrow i dont gotta work, that I might go outside from 10-2 and just sunburn the **** outta my face. Hopin it'll burn real bad and peel a couple days later with fresh skin underneath. Yea i know sunburnin is bad, but i dont mind the extreme pain to get rid of this acne. Does anyone think this might be a bad idea (other than skin cancer etc. - im aware of that, but i only plan on doin it this once)

Re: Acne solution, sunburning?

I hope you haven't gone out to get the sunburn yet. All you're going to get is permanent sun damage which generally shows up later, and your acne will come back anyway.

Do you have insurance? Your best bet is a visit to the dermatologist.
