Clear Skin while living overseas

Recently I was able to live in Rome Italy for 3 months and I noticed that after a couple weeks there my skin cleared up. Normally I have moderate/sometimes severe acne. For those 3 months I threw out all my acne products and only had to wash my face once a day.

I'm not sure why. It might have been the water (it had high levels of calcium i think). Although it could have been something else.

Has anyone experienced something similar? And does anyone have an explanation/ a way to incorporate something into my life back in the states to have the same effect. Once I had hassle free clear skin I don't want to return to my endless/ ineffective routine.

I always feel like this after a holiday... my blackheads/whiteheads/spots ALWAYS clear up! Now i don't know if its down to me frazzling my skin with the sun or the clean air from the beach but my mum always says that abroad its cleaner air? It kinda makes sense seeing as here in the uk its full of pollution!
