I am about to leave for Ghana for the fall semester (September-December). Last time I was in Africa (Uganda), I developed the worst acne of my life, I'm assuming from the extreme head and EXTREME dust that covered me every day. I know that Ghana is just as dusty. When I got home from Uganda, I went on Accutane, which essentially cleared me up. I live in New Orleans now, and I have begun to get acne almost comparable to my pre-Accutane days, again, I am assuming because of the humidity and sweat. I have heard good things about the Regimen and plan on using it until I can come back home and reevaluate Accutane round two.
My question is this--I have read that the Regimen can cause bad sensitivity to sun, and I am a pretty pale person going to Africa. If I put sunscreen over my moisturizer every day, as I plan on doing, will this cause me to break out or negate the effects of the Regimen? I know you are not supposed to veer from the steps, and this would definitely be veering, but I can't burn (particularly when I will also be on Doxy 100 mg every day for Malaria precautions). What would you do in my situation? Just add the sunscreen and risk it? Or just not use the Regimen at all? Thank you!
