Sun Damaged Skin And Acne

Recommended Posts

When I was living in a cooler city, my face was fine. It was smooth. No acne at all.

Then I went to college in a city that was extremely hot in the summer. Coming from a cool place, I never had to use sunscreen so I didn't use sunscreen when I was in the hot city.

When I was going outside without sunscreen, I felt my face becoming more and more uncomfortable then I started breaking out.

It was definitely the sun that damaged my skin.

Now my skin is flaky, oily, not soft, and I break out every other day around the chin and mouth area.

I tried using Vitamin A/C/E creams and face wash but it's no use.

It's been like this for years now.

By the way, all of my acne have pus in it.

Any help?

I had the same thing i used to work as a postman so i was exposed to the elements all day all summer sweating at the same time, For the first few months i looked really good then the acne hit hard. Large pustules most days with some cysts it was nasty, Any old marks looked ten times worse when tan faded also.

I literally cooked my face and it reacted very badly indeed.

Ive started getting it under control now with accutane and differin but has taken a long time.

My advice would be stay out of the sun as much as possible and use plenty of moisturizer. I also found that using face wash broke me out more as it kind of dried the skin forcing it to produce more oil into already blocked pores.

I feel like the sun burnt an important vitamin or nutrient off my skin. I've never been able to find out what. I tried many lotions and face wash but none of them have worked.
