I've never really been bothered by my acne that much. After I'd tried everything and it still wouldn't go away, I kind of accepted it. It doesn't interfere with my daily life. I have a lot of friends and I still get boyfriends and attention from boys. But now that it is causing permanent damage, I want to figure out how to prevent this from happening before next summer.
I've been on pretty much every major prescription besides Accutane-- that stuff scares me and I do NOT want to go there.
The only major differences I can think of about the summers vs. the rest of my year are:
- I lifeguard in the summer, and so wear more sunscreen. I use the ones specially designed for your face, though.
- In the summer, I live at home with my parents. During the year, I'm at university.
- I don't wear make up in the summer (you'd think that would make my acne better!)
- Don't have AC so I sweat more in the summer.
Does anyone have any ideas about what might cause this?

I live in AZ and I have the exact same problem. Breakout bad over Summer. Clear over Winter. It's a frustrating cycle and I have no idea what causes it. Hang in there.
I'm glad it's not just me! Have you found anything that makes it better at all? I feel like I've tried everything.

whats so sad is how much research is lacking behind the causes of acne. it's almost like no one really cares lol
