Please help me! I've had mild acne since I was about 15 (I'm 18 now.) I've finally started to take it seriously and actually educate myself. I wash my face morning and night, but that's about it. I used to pick pretty badly, but thankfully since I was so young, have no major scarring. I do, however, have s e v e r e red marks that feel like they've been there for ages. I only very recently started looking into healing these, and keep reading about how much the sun worsens them.
I go hiking for about 3 hours at a time about 3 times a week and never use sun screen (I don't burn ever so although I know how important it is, it's never my first priority.)
Basically, what I'm asking, is how much more damage have I caused by all of my sun exposure and how can I fix it?
I'm only really interested in affordable, non-prescription remedies, so if you have anything to share, I really look forward to hearing it! Thanks so much!
