Hey guys!

I went on holiday last month for two weeks to Miami and the Caribbean. I got a tan and my spots almost completely dried up. Some days, I wouldn't get any. Some days, maybe I'd get a couple of whiteheads.

This continued once I got home for a while - the odd spot appearing, but mostly, a clear face.

Now, I've been back almost a month, I've lost pretty much all of the tan and my spots are coming back. This morning I woke up with about 7-10 new "whitehead" breakouts. I haven't changed the way I wash/cleanse my face.

Any ideas why this is happening?! Thanks.

A vacation means dietary change, so what you're eating definitely could be an issue.

Maybe you drank more water?

The sun does dry out your skin, and drying the skin would reduce the acne, so that could also be the cause.

Just my 2 cents

I didn't drink more water and the diet change wasn't exactly great - burgers, fries etc! - so my diet is definitely more healthy at home.

Maybe it's the drying out...

Thanks for your reply!

The sun will dry out the skin, only problem is u had to come home!
Have u tried asprin as a face mask? I swear by it, really really helped dry my spots out last year. And when i started seeing an improvement i felt better about myself thus i was less stressed and producing less spots :)

Have you thought of trying blue light? Some people's acne responds to the blue light wave omitted by sunlight which can clear up their acne. I tried this but it sadly didn't work for me but then again my acne is cystic and quite frankly a nightmare, but this could be promising for you!

Its proper term is salicylic acid, its ridiculously cheap too! When u crush a few up in the palm of ur hand, mix in a little water and damp it on ur problem areas, it fizzes up into ur pore's and cleans them right out
Hope u see an improvement soon

It's a portable device which you can buy and use at home. It's expensive at £299, but if it works for your acne it's a small price to pay.

Are you on accutane rumplesilkskin? Sure i read you were somewhere?!

I'm just about to start. I'm pretty scared though. I've never used it before, I have the pills but i have to have a bloodtest on Tuesday then I can start provided it comes back ok.

Yeah, short term there's nothing better than being on the beach and in the sea under the sun, for me atleast. However, since the sun drys your skin out, the skin starts to produce more sebum which can make you break out even more.

I've no doubt that it works as your results are incredible but i dread to even imagine how much it costs.

While on vacation, did you have less orgasms than usual? If so, that could certainly be a factor.

Difference in the air/atmosphere, I'm sure of it. Whenever I go home, back to the Carribean, my skin behaves like a normal person's. We have crap air and water in the West.
