Post surfing hurt pimples?

next week maybe I am gonna start surfing. but the weather will obviously be hot and such. would me putting sun block on my skin and baby powder on my cheeks and such screw up the acne i already have on my cheeks? i have it a lot kinda on em.

what should i do? would the salt water hurt it too?

Couldn't you use maybe a large baseball cap to to keep the sun off your face?

Use a non comodogenic (spelling) sunscreen... oil free!!! Lots of girls sunscreens contain this. oil free maybe? lol. And as for the water no way! salt water would DRY your skin, which would not cause pimples, maybe clear them up! Wel, temporarily, anyways, like the sun.

Hope that helps.

From my experience, the salt water almost always clears up my skin. I always wished that I lived near the ocean because every time I swim in it, my skin clears up like overnight.
As for the sunblock, I would never put it on my face, but it doesn't sound like you have a choice if you're gonna be surfing, so i'd at least look for an oil free sunblock. That's really all you can do, because you don't want to burn.
