Does a Sun Tan Really Get Rid of Acne?
I have moderate acne on my face and back since I was a teenager, and my mother has always told me that I should go tanning or lay out to get rid of it. It seems to help sometimes, but once the tan goes away my acne tends to get worse. Does sun exposure or tanning really help treat acne? I could see that UV light might do something, but I'm worried about sun damage, too. Thanks.
