Ok so everyone i saying humidity is bad for your acne.. but why is it that humidity actually clears me up... i suffer from mild acne and moderate in the winter months.. but when summer comes around my acne is all clear.. this is especialy true when i go to tropical asian cities like hong kong and shanghai.. seriously i would never get one single pimple and those places are humid like no other with humidity levl up to 80+. Currenlty i live in los angles with humidity level around 40 to 50 this time of the year.... and i read some post bout sauna being bad for ur skin.. well everytime i go in to a sauna/steam room it clears me up.. so what's up with that ????

cold = irritation. Skin gets dry and flakes. In the summer the humifity hydrates ur skin hence no irritation. Plus the sun = Vit D very good for acne.

Maybe the humidity opens your pores so they don't clog up. Maybe the reason why other peoples' skin gets worse in the humidity is because the skin swells, closing off pores.

do you go to school? if so, you're probably not as stressed in the summer and therefore break out less.
