Am I just imagining this or what?

When you go to school youre exposed to wind, sun, temperature changes, youre walking around all day long - all of these external aggressors will stimulate the sebaceous glands. When youre sitting at home on the computer all day, your body is much more relaxed - so are the sebaceous glands.

Stuffy rooms generally make my skin much oilier and I can stay at home and remain clear for days and then after a full day of college, I start to breakout due to the heat and oil it generates.
So yeah, I agree with this wholly.

Agreed. My skin is always less oily when I'm at home on the weekends. Also, the lights make my shiny skin look even worse. I hate fluorescent lighting.

I was the exact same in high school. Eight hours under fluorescent light caused me to break out. In the summer months, I would wear long sleeves, because if I didn't, my arms would be covered acne breakouts. I pretty much forgot about it when I got out of school. A few years ago, I began working from home, and decided to buy some bright lighting to work in. The brightest I could find was a 3000 lumen CFL. (I shave my head these days) After one week, my head looked like a pizza, and my arms were breaking out again. I was not hot, walking a lot, leaving the house or anything. I am convinced it is the lighting. I gave the light bulb to the first person that would take it off my hands.

Do you have symptoms of lupus?
I don't get notified of your response to my post unless you QUOTE my post.
Please only quote a small portion of the post so it doesn't clutter up the thread.
HOW I STAY 100% CLEAR:
Spironolactone (anti-androgen drug)
Betaine HCL with each meal
Avoiding silicones and occlusives in skin/hair products

fluorescent light...one more thing to be paranoid about!
I supposed if red and blue UV lights can treat acne, then there might be an artificial light that can trigger it. Artificial light from computer screens and cell phones can also cause insomnia, so yeah, it could be a factor that impacts your skin somehow.
I'm sitting under fluorescent lighting as I type this...uh oh

Supplements: inositol, DIM, digestive enzymes [don't need them every day anymore, only on cheat days], herpanacine & vitamin C with rose hips [not every day], regular sun exposure for vitamin D3.
Lifestyle & Skin Care: Low histamine diet, avoiding unnecessary stress, balancing skin's PH (using Image Ormedics), using distilled/ filtered water to wash face, occasional high frequency facials... (although I have been slacking lately)
