Im a 25 year old male, and i suffer from seasonal acne. In the spring and summer i work outdoors in the sun most of the day. My acne is near to none, maybe a small pimple here or there, but for some reason the sun makes my completion really great. Now winter is coming, i don't spend time outdoors in the sun like i used to and my skin starts to go crazy. A Lot of acne and i don't know how to deal with it. i was thinking tanning, but im worried about the cancer and if it will make my acne worse? Or any other suggestions?
thanks for the reply and cystic acne is a type of acne that results usually in large hard pimples. It is heard to explain, but they are not your regular small acne issues. I used to suffer from these and i found out that straight dairy was one of the issues causing it. Large as in a small golf ball size, almost as a tumor on your face.They usually don't come to a head, and need some type of cortisone injection to get them to go down.

Also i will take your advice and start wearing sun protection. I love being in the sun, and should start taking precautions about it. In the summer i usually do not apply sunscreen,but this year i will. I realize being in the sun 10 or more hours per day, can lead to some serious issues down the road.

I guess ill just have to deal with this winter cycle of acne, and also i hate being so pale!!
