I have heard this time and time again from clients, a very popular myth that seems to be so deeply believed by so many people!  I constantly get “I need to go in the sun to remove my acne”.  As much as I wish that were true, it is a fairy tale that if believed can actually cause more damage and breakouts to your skin than good! Sure, tanned skin hides blemishes such as acne, scars, etc, but it also dries your skin out tremendously, causing more oils to be produced, meaning MORE pimples! Most skincare products also don’t do well in the sun and thus cause even more chances of damage and breakouts! My advice, stay away from the sun until you’re healed, and then, still stay away from the sun! As much as possible anyways! 🙂
