Sun and Acne – Short fix can lead to long-term problems

Many people with acne love to lay in the sun because their acne “dries up.”  It is true, I even remember thinking so myself when I was a teenager.  If I had to have acne, I was going to have “tan” acne.  I felt like my breakouts were less obvious if they were on a sunburned face.  The old saying “if I’d have known then what I know now” flashes in my head.  What I didn’t realize was that all of that sun exposure was slowly damaging my follicles and making them weak…. and MORE prone to acne!   Over time, I have committed the worst of skin crimes, weakening my skin’s defenses.  While we’re on the subject of sun and skin, the dreaded “bacne” (back acne, for those not familiar) becomes a huge annoyance in the summer months.  Of course, everyone wants to frolic freely in their bathing suits and tank tops without worrying about an ugly blemish on their back or chest.  Hair care products are the culprit for MUCH bacne.  Especially if you have long hair.  Even you short-haired peeps, listen up!  Your hair doesn’t have to be long to cause bacne.  All those oils that drip down when you sweat can wreak havoc on your back.  Kairos Acne Care Solutions is a MUST for summer months!  I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the risk of skin cancer when I am talking about sun exposure.  SPF of 30 or higher should be worn at all times.  Make sure you get your skin checked regularly by a Dermatologist, as it only takes a few minutes and it could literally save your life!
