How does the sun affect acne?

The moistorizer doesn't have any spf in it so I never have sunblock on whenever I go out. So when I come back home from the sun, I notice that it's easier to see my acne and scars.

I wanna know what exactly does the sun do to acne and why you need sunblock.

Hey I have the same issue because I'm using Complex 15 and there's no SPF in it. From what I've gathered, I think the sun is very harmful to the skin and in combination with the use of BP, your skin becomes exteremely susceptible to damage. I think it makes scars and the whole healing process even longer and can cause permanent damage if consistently exposed to it over a long period of time.

The dangerous rays from the sun thin your skin, proning yourself to more break outs. If you notice a break out after 2 weeks of sun exposer that ended you in sunburn, then the sun did it to you.
