Is The Sun Good For Acne Or Not?

Recommended Posts

I feel like half of people say, "OMG you should be wearing sunscreen or never go outside if you have acne" and others say, "Go out and get a tan, the sun helps produce vitamin D, people in other countries with a lot of sun exposure don't have acne"

So which is it?

Some sun exposure is really good for acne. The Vitamin D it provides is really good for your skin, plus the tan helps to camouflage acne and scarring. However, TOO much sun damages your skin, and can cause acne. So, get some sun everyday, but if you're getting sunburned then you should definitely get less. Basically, everything in moderation :)
