Sorry, but I have tons of experiments and evidence to show the sun is very beneficial for acne and scars. The sun works as an exfoliation system if you know what you are doing - over time. Look at my back pics. It was once bombarded by acne. Now it is nearly clear 99.9%.
BP may be aging but I'd rather fix wrinkles than suffer a bunch of scars. I still get carded everywhere and some people think I am as young as 18 or less.
I am actually tired of people saying what the sun does to acne without knowing what the sun does to skin in the first place.
Well I'd like to see this "evidence" that the sun helps red marks. I didn't say anything about the sun and actual acne, Im talking about the little red spots left afterwards(not scars). Mine reduced by about 50% when I started wearing sunscreen. As for exfoliation, of course that will help with them. But you can easily get that from a skincare product, and it would probably be quicker and more effective.
All great things take time. I am highly against fast exfoliation or skin abrasions. They are unnatural acts on the skin. Trust me on this, the sun is the best thing if you know what you are doing. ALL of my scars have gone away. It has taken years but yes ALL. Not 99%, not 99.99999%, ALL! I am not a hermit however. I go out and play.
All I can say is there are much faster and effective ways to rid yourself of "scars"(red marks are not scars, its hyperpigmentaion) so if you want to spend years waiting for the sun to fade them then so be it. Personally, Im going to stick to my lactic acid peels and sunscreen, which have helped a great deal. Most dermatologists will suggest sunscreen for this type of problem. And yes necromancer, Im am not a hermit either, I got out and "play." I just wear sunscreen and don't lay out in the sun. In fact, one of my favorite things to do is hiking, but thanks for the offhanded insult.
LOL, it wasn't an insult. It was explaining about how I got rid of my scars. You need to read about what peels do. I still got all the layers to my skin. Peels remove layers and they don't come back. Skin keeps getting thinner. What you are doing will ruin your skin in the long run. Trust me.
I don't know if that it true or not, but this isn't something Im doing long term. Mine are almost completely gone as a result of it. I'm sure if you had strong chemicals peels done on a regular basis for long periods of time you could do damage, but that's not what Im doing. I know that retinoids thin the outer layer of skin, but they actually thicken the inner layer of skin over time.
I guess. If it works, then that should be good. I have seen some people really mess their faces up though.
