I think it's perhaps the sun and the heat (it's ALWAYS hot where I live). My dermatologist told me to stay away from the sun because it might cause more pimples/acne (don't know the difference ), but the problem is, sometimes I can't avoid going outside! In a couple days, my family's going to go for a family trip and I'm sure I won't be allowed to stay in the hotel all the time
I really don't wanna go on the trip cuz my acne is finally beginning to clear up. After it breaks out due to being out in the sun/heat too long, it could take MONTHS to clear it up again! It's just terrible.
So I need help. What causes the acne in the first place? Is it the sweat that builds up and clogs pores or what? >.< What can I do to avoid the breakouts if I need to go outside? (do I use an umbrella or dab at my face with a tissue all the time or...?)
