Alrighty, I dont really have acne, just the occasional pimple here and there. Anyways, my face needs a tan really bad and I heard that sun was bad for acne (I just got this whole acne problem cleared up so i dont want it comming back). If I use a sun screen that wont clog pores, wil it make my face break out in any way? Also, can somebody explain what exatly the sun does to your face? (sorry this is sorta off topic!)

ok, from what i have heard, the sun causes your skin to dry out, especially if you burn. initially this drying of the skin and oil on the face can help clear your acne (and i think the vitamin D the sun supplies also helps).. then about a week or two later your skin tries to overcompensate to get the skin back to normal and it causes excess oil production.

i have no idea if this is factual or not, it's just what i've read or heard.
