    I do not think that wil help much, due to a problem. The skin will now start producing oils to remoisture the skin you "damaged". This will only cause more acne.

    What you did is subject yourself to a lot of UV radiation which killed off a lot of the p.acnes bacteria which is what causes acne.

    It'll be back. Don't overdo the sun cure. Sun helps, but don't overdo it.

    A friend of mine was plagued with acne...this may help.
    First of all don't do anything like the sunburn again coz all you do is weaken the skin which in turns encourages all the sebum oils to find its way into your pores more easily, don't pinch either coz that will further damage your pores and push the oils in deeper.
    2.Try not to become too stressed coz this will active your glands to produce more oil. Stay away from greasy foods in general and sugar(I know there is hype about this but my buddy has seen positive results so I will post it).
    3.Take a shower twice daily,every once in awhile. If you sweat a lot.
    4.For the face use a hypo-allergenic facial soap. Use a noncomgenic oil-free facial lotion.

    There are some very good over the counter poducts at the pharmacy...look for the words..Salicylic Acid:
    (Salicylic acid is another agent which also peels away dead skin cells. It is one of the ingredients found in many over-the-counter acne creams.)

    So you've go choice, the key is to find something that works for you and don't forget your skin is ALIVE so that means what orked for you a few months ago might change over time...if you've got it really bad, I highly suggest you visit a dermatologist(have your family doctor recommend one).

    I'd much rather have a pimple then melanoma. I'd recommend you google that word.

    I think moderate sun exposure is good for the soul, but to consider it as a remedy for acne is crazy.
